L'une [loon] is French for "one" and "moon."
Using fabrics that either drape, shape, or move with the body,
L'une Collection is about becoming "one" with yourself.
The L'une woman is a modern romantic who understands the importance of being an individual. She expresses her femininity and a touch of look-at-me sass. She may choose art as fashion in our carefully crafted runway pieces down to our rockstar cocktail rings. The L'une woman loves to travel and finding things that are new and different.
To offer maximum comfort with style, we cut most of the line in wovens with stretch or in knits. Even our most outrageous plastic bustiers and accessories are surprisingly lightweight. Based in beautiful La Jolla, California since 2009, L'une is an emerging niche brand that is continually evolving with our customer's lifestyle. We strive to design with the comfort of flipflops but with stiletto glam. Shop small with lots of personality.
