I was at an event and saw a woman wear the most beautiful dress. I had to know where she got it and she told me her friend, Karen Fowler designed it. I reached out and fell in love with her whole collection. Karen Fowler’s mantra for her Soleil de Mer Collection is the ‘moment’. The ‘resort wear’ line encompasses lightweight separates in beautiful silks, natural cottons, in bold prints or amazing colors. Soleil de Mer is perfect for the Los Angeles lifestyle and any vacay in the future.
The inspiration for this line comes from trendsetting, women in the 60s and 70s. Think the heavily jeweled and turbaned Liz Taylor; a tanned, fearless Lauren Hutton; and the exotic Marisa Berenson. These icons wore couture, along with loose linens, silks and busy patterns. Soleil de Mer has resurrected the fun and uniqueness of these fashions.
The piece that gripped me from the very beginning was The Wrap Dress. It comes in silk and cotton and can be worn six different ways! Yes, six different ways! That means expanding your wardrobe and packing less on your getaway. Plus, it comes in amazing prints and beautiful colors. I wore mine to my day at the races! This dress is so versatile. You can wear it to practically any event.
