ABOUT COLLECTION ‘JOIE DE VIVRE’:
Influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and Parisian sensibility, Lulu’s debut collection emphasizes craftsmanship and a mastery of skills. Once in production, the collection evolved quickly to highlight the collaboration between local craftsmen. Behind each item in this limited-edition collection is an incredible artist.
“My designs serve a purpose and tell a story. As I created this collection, the designs organically became more cheerful and the color selections blossomed. I knew the phrase “Joie De Vivre” embodied the spirit of ingenuity and beauty.”
