I became friends with Leslie Tessler when we met at Pilates class in Buenos Aires. We had both moved to South America in early 2010 and became fast friends. Although I came back to the US after a year in Argentina, Leslie and I kept in touch and in late 2011, I was so excited when I learned that she had launched a line of luxury handmade capes.
She just released her newest look book and I can. not. wait. to get my hands on these. In addition to the Titan and Pluma capes, which were her first designs (and are two of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe), the new collection includes two gorgeous new styles, the Georgia and Lulu. PLUS, she’ll be coming out with interchangeable collars in a few months. Fall can’t come soon enough.
