ABOUT THE BRAND
Launched in Spring 2017, Frances de Lourdes is a New York based company founded by Alejandra Echeverria. The label takes its name from her mother's and father’s middle names, respectively.
Alejandra was born and raised in New York City and has spent time living in Bogota and Paris as well. A Parsons graduate, her experience includes over a decade designing for various New York fashion companies.
A long time lover, wearer and collector of tees, as she got into her 30s she felt the need to polish up the uniform a bit. After an unsuccessful search to replace some beloved vintage tees, she set about creating an updated version - the perfect tee. Keeping the comfort, ease and love-worn feel, but meticulously updating the fit and fabric to create a collection of refined classic tees and tanks that have a sensuous feel and are truly versatile. Perfect for running around, working, an evening out or sleeping in. These became the starting point for the rest of the collection.
Featured in WSJ Magazine, listed as an editor's essential in Vogue and hailed as "the perfect tee" in Harper's Bazaar, Elle and the Telegraph UK. Fans of the collection now include Charlize Theron and Lauren Hutton. A selection of pieces are carried by Matches Fashion, Net-A-Porter, The Line and other specialty retailers.
Frances de Lourdes clothing is made locally in New York.
