I recently came across this new brand which really appealed to me in the sense of practicality, wearablity, and shelf life. Allow me to introduce you to Pallas, a family-owned Paris-based atelier that specializes in a single, intricate craft: Le Smoking. Established by Daniel Pallas in 1961, Pallas initially worked with Céline and Balenciaga on their prototypes for coats and jackets, but no one wanted to produce with Pallas because the work was too expensive. To cut a long story short, now the company is emerging from behind the scenes with a collection of “chic minimalist” silhouettes based on le smoking.
It's so refreshing to see an updated version of le smoking. I'm dying to get this floor-length white cape-like blazer (regional designers, please do not attempt to re-create this look, thank you), and accessorize it with a pair of killer Alaïa's heels a tiny clutch, and minimal jewelry. According to The Wall Street Journal, their brand's price points range between $1,310 and $2,300.
