The contemporary lifestyle brand featuring beautifully tailored, French-inspired separates and dresses, is available at more than 150 Macy’s stores and on macys.com
NEW YORK, NY – March 15, 2017 – AVEC LES FILLES, now available at Macy’s, is a contemporary lifestyle brand created by fashion industry favorite Joyce Azria for the self-assured and stylish woman. French for “with the girls,” AVEC LES FILLES connects an achievable price point with aspirational design for a line that hits the millennial woman’s sartorial sweet spot. The new brand is Azria’s journey into the “dress code” of the inspired millennial, and aims to redefine how women express themselves and explore the world through the lens of fashion.
“I’ve always been acutely aware of who the millennial customer is and how her shopping habits have evolved over time,” said Azria. “AVEC LES FILLES is uniquely positioned to bring a relevant and fashionable collection of lifestyle products in the spirit of today’s shopper, and I am grateful to be bringing my vision to life with the power of Macy’s.”
The stunningly constructed collection embodies a playfully sophisticated French aesthetic—think ‘70s Parisian chic with California ease for a range that is equal parts confident, sexy and feminine. Soft tailoring, smart separates, and a sophisticated color palette combine for an effortlessly hip, gamine look.
“Joyce Azria had incredible vision as she steered BCBGeneration in a direction of success defined by enviable designs,” said Cassandra Jones, senior vice president of Macy’s Fashion. “With AVEC LES FILLES, Joyce is bringing a collection tailor-made for the modern woman—it’s a range of classic, versatile pieces imbued with innovative treatments. Its ease of wear is as impressive as the breathtaking design, and we’re thrilled to bring her fresh, cutting-edge vision to the Macy’s customer.”
Menswear-inspired shirting is accented with femme ruffle details while overalls receive a chic update rendered in luxurious fabrics. Lattice-work bodices, bomber jackets in opulent textiles, and embellished cold-shoulder tops add a formal touch to sportswear, while jersey dresses with knot details, silk hoodies, and cropped sweatshirts with satin ties offer an elevated take on the popular athleisure trend. Rounding out the collection are outerwear-inspired sleeveless maxi dresses, versatile shift dresses, and plissé tops that highlight the Rive Droite-cum-Malibu sensibility that defines the AVEC LES FILLES aesthetic.
The collection retails from $38 to $595, and is available at more than 150 Macy’s stores and on macys.com.
