New York City fashion designer Gene Kagan is creating a style revolution with his contemporary sportswear brand LOLA & SOPHIE. Kagan was born and raised in Riga, Latvia, but moved to Los Angeles when he was 16 years old. Kagan presents a modern system of dressing based on easy key pieces and interchangeable items that work together to create an entire wardrobe that goes from day to evening, weekday to weekend, season to season. For every woman…every occasion!
From the looks of the fall collection, we can expect to see long sweaters, oversize jackets, silk pants, sequin tops, casual short dresses and more. The collection is tailored for ladies on the go. Shattering the myth that style and comfort are incompatible, his collection takes fashion for a walk on the relaxed side with nonchalant silhouettes that balance comfort and luxe to accentuate the positive aspects of a women’s body and enhance her personal style. As the “master of casual chic,” Gene’s timeless, ageless, affordable separates provide a confident, modern approach to fashion.
Gene told Dreams in Heels: “I believe in creating wearable multi-function clothes. My target customer is a woman of style and individuality. She’s 18. She’s 100! And everything in between. The common denominator is her desire to look polished and put together.”
Gene’s designs are well-cut, luxurious fabrics, very flattering and stylish…making a woman feels comfortable, beautiful and classy.
“These are clothes to experiment with and make your own. I designed them to be both comfortable and flattering and to instill a certain sense of empowerment for the woman who wears them,” says Gene.
The LOLA & SOPHIE collection is manufactured entirely in New York City, ensuring Gene’s meticulous attention to detail throughout the entire production process. LOLA & SOPHIE is available at more than 300 boutiques and specialty stores nationwide as well as online.
