LAPOINTE stepped into the daylight with her Spring Summer 2024 collection, offering a refreshing twist to her iconic nighttime glamour. LaPointe's fashion has long been a favorite among party-loving New Yorkers, especially those who frequent the vibrant streets of SoHo. However, this collection presented a new perspective, as she showcased a LaPointe girl navigating the city streets during the day, in a triumphant return to the fashion scene following the pandemic.
The choice of location for the presentation was significant and poignant, as it unfolded right across the street from her showroom. For LaPointe, this was not just a fashion show; it was a symbol of creative rebirth and the courage to reinvent oneself. She expressed, "I just kept thinking about creative destruction and letting go, like the way we used to do things. I’m really honing in on what’s true to my brand and doing it in a way I feel comfortable."
The inspiration for the Spring 2024 collection sprang from an unexpected source—the local bodega. LaPointe found herself at the corner store purchasing a lottery ticket when the Mega Millions jackpot had reached unprecedented heights. In that moment, she began to fantasize about what she would wear if she were to win. While many would opt for understated and anonymous attire, LaPointe envisioned a wardrobe filled with vibrant colors, reminiscent of money itself. Lime green, lemon yellow, and metallics dominated her fantasy palette. In her dream wardrobe, transparent glitter gowns that could nearly blind onlookers in bright light coexisted with floor-length patent trenches that boldly declared, "Look at me."
As the day transitioned into evening, LaPointe's vision for her collection became even more apparent. Her designs, which might seem slightly eccentric to the average passerby during daylight hours, took on a captivating and enchanting aura as the city's sky turned moody and dusky. The outdoor show attracted crowds of pedestrians, causing a traffic jam in the heart of SoHo. These bystanders, drawn to the spectacle, caught a glimpse of how LaPointe's creations would come to life under the city's vibrant nighttime lights, providing the perfect backdrop for her extraordinary designs.
