Post-Millennial fashion darling L’Agence has, since 2008, been definitively winning over the style cognoscenti—Kai Gerber, Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Lopez—who are drawn in ever higher numbers to its “California lifestyle with French attitude” ethos. And this summer, the label will at last be launching a footwear collection that, if we might say, is the epitome of contemporary, laidback glamour.
Of course, one wonders with all the financial challenges facing the industry, significantly accelerated by this persistent pandemic—forcing so many to work from home—just why anyone would launch a shoe line at this time. CEO Jeff Rudes (who is also the founder of iconic denim label J Brand) seems undaunted.

 

“As a lifestyle brand, shoes were a natural progression for us,” he offers. “The design was the shoe to wear with jeans and complement the entire collection. Although the market is suffering, we know there are opportunities during difficult times, and so it was [actually] perfect timing for us.”
They are debuting three silhouettes: Éloise, a classic pointed-toe pump, Lolita, a minimalistic mule, and Amélie, an understated loafer. Another style, the Madeline—which is a Mary Jane heel—is slated to be introduced with ready-to-wear this October. The collection will be available exclusively at L’Agence.com and the L’Agence boutiques located at Melrose Place, Madison Avenue and SoHo NYC. We also highly recommend spending time on their Instagram, for quick but effective style inspirations.
N.B. – L’Agence has also been active during the pandemic by decisively giving back to the community. The brand has been partnered with LA Protects, producing and donating masks; and has been supporting the Children’s Defense Fund, whose mission it is to advocate for the rights and needs of all children—especially urgent in these times of such financial insecurity.
