It all started in 1906–no, that’s not a typo! La Parisienne is best known for introducing Capri pants in the 1960s, which were notably worn by Audrey Hepburn, who actually bought them to world.
Later, Jacqueline Kennedy became captivated by the style over time, and the Jackie ‘O pants were designed for her. They are still associated with the everlasting fascination of the island of Capri around the world.
And, for at least a century, it has been rumoured in the island’s little square on the Amalfi Coast lies La Parisienne that has the rare ability to help you experience melodies, transport you to another planet and make you desire its precious collections.
The trendy La Parisienne, located in the heart of Capri, is the heir to a strong appreciation for fashion in an acceptable pattern for stylish women. Complete with a relaxed and artfully furnished lounge, the ideal setting where to find new recommendations in the name of modernity, but with great attention to the masterpiece.
Allora! La Parisienne continues to make the famous tailored tapered trousers in real-time. They’ve updated their custom-made pieces in pure silk, georgette or linen. The result are outfits that are as desirable as they are accessible, made with natural fibre, touched by hand and come true once they are worn.
Don’t forget to try out their stylish accessories as well!
Stretch silk Shantung is woven in Italy exclusively for La Parisienne. Their yarns are one-of-a-kind, so purchasing one of their capris, kaftans, shirts or any kind of clothing is like gifting yourself an authentic unique item.
The Journey Of La Parisienne
Grandmother Donna Mariuccia founded the company in 1906, and the mother Adriana, who has always created solely on the island, has a global network of outlets. She now boasts of entrepreneurial ability to constantly colonise new market zones between Switzerland and Washington, traveling through Pitti, and training legions of females. In 1967, she had partnered with Rome’s Ognibene-Zendnman high-end fashion couture brand.
On Capri, La Parisienne has become a must-see tourist attraction for vibrant and lively holiday fashion: handbags, shoes, and cashmere pullovers for a select group of prestigious brands such as Gentry Portofino. Adrian’s Capri, the luxury prêt-à-porter label that has gone beyond national prominence since 1969, has been upgraded over the years to become simply La Parisienne Couture.
