Frances de Lourdes, a new brand of luxury tees and tanks in ultra soft, lightweight Italian cashmere and silks. The collection, designed and produced in New York City by 36-year-old Alejandra Echeverria, was born out of a desire for a refined classic tee. Echeverria, who notes that the name “Frances de Lourdes” is a reference to her mother and father’s middle names, respectively, was inspired to create an elevated version of her favorite vintage staples – the perfect tee.
A long time lover, wearer, and collector of tees, Echeverria set out to create a collection of timeless tees that she herself wanted and felt were missing from the market. Calling upon a decade’s worth of experience designing for various New York fashion brands and her education at both Skidmore College and Parsons The New School of Design, New York native Echeverria spent over a year meticulously developing the debut collection of Frances de Lourdes. The collection, which is tightly edited in both color and silhouette, consists of eight timeless luxury tees and tanks made from fine Italian cashmere and silks.
