If you are one of the new judges on THE VOICE, a top model, entertainer, or Hollywood celeb, the design team KAUFMANFRANCO has likely been on your radar for a decade. If you are not a fashionista hanging on every syllable of E’s of red carpet reviews you may not be familiar with the amazing pair, or with the fantastic YIN and YANG (a favorite subject of Luxe Axcess) that defines their relationship and work!

“KAUFMANFRANCO’s mix of sophistication and edge, luxury and function, handcrafted and high-tech offers up a body conscious sensuality as complex and provocative as the modern woman they dress. “Although our aesthetic is trained in a similar way, interestingly enough, it is always the tension between us that pushes us creatively,” says Franco. This combustible mix of the raw and the refined, the spontaneous and the controlled, produces heat and balance, imbuing their work with a visceral energy.”

“Simplicity is a unifying element of the KAUFMANFRANCO brand. Franco comments, “We deliver clothes that are deceptively understated, but when you take a closer look at them, they are actually quite complex, not based on decoration but on the cut, fabric and meticulous detailing.” Kaufman adds, “This detailing continues from the outside in, manipulating the construction of each garment in order to create an inside-out sexiness.”

Offering a pared down, well edited mix of pieces, with the highest standards of global craftsmanship, KAUFMANFRANCO is about a new sensuality: a collision of contrasts and a balance of refinement and rebellion.”

Two weeks ago we spent a fun day at the KAUFMANFRANCO showroom.   WE all got a close-up PREVIEW look at the latest RESORT Collection shown in Paris in late June. Clients and stylists enjoyed getting to know the designers and  were quick to avail themselves of the opportunity to pre-order the collection.  We will showcase our favorites from that Collection in an upcoming blog.

We adore these guys and the gorgeous sophistication AND practicality of their pared down design aesthetic.  If you do too, you need to be shopping with Luxe Axcess.

Remember, you can SEE it, LOVE it, and BUY it with Luxe Axcess. WE get you into luxury fashion!
