SANTA BARBARA, CA, September 29, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Kristen d’Offay, the visionary founder behind the modern luxury womenswear brand d’Offay, is thrilled to announce the grand opening of her inaugural brick-and-mortar store, nestled in the historic El Paseo Shopping Center in Santa Barbara’s Presidio Neighborhood. This exciting event will take place on October 5th from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM and is open to the public, marking a special occasion for fashion enthusiasts and Santa Barbara locals alike.
The grand opening celebration will also host a personal appearance by renowned jewelry designer Rali Manolov, showcasing her latest collection of gold and diamond pieces. Additionally, the event will feature an exclusive unveiling of new pieces by Kristen d’Offay herself.
Founder Kristen d’Offay shares her vision: “When I started this journey, my aim was to help women feel empowered and see the best versions of themselves. I handpick each fabric to ensure it feels good against the skin and drapes effortlessly against the body. Each piece is designed to feel uncomplicated, elegant, and timeless. The d’Offay woman embodies the spirit of exploration, wonder, and experience. Magic at every age, full of fire, and always ready to discover more of herself and the world around her.”
An exclusive curation of remarkable designers, including Parisian jeweler Marie Laure Chamorel and French luxury leather belts from Vaincourt, sets this boutique apart. Chamorel, known for her delicate and feminine metal fringe designs, offers a collection rarely found elsewhere, making the store a destination for fashion enthusiasts seeking access to the extraordinary. Vaincourt, renowned for their handmade leather belts with old-world brass buckles, is another designer d’Offay has secured exclusively in Santa Barbara.
For celebrity panache, style-setters such as Kate Hudson, Molly Sims, Jennifer Lawrence, and Eiza Gonzalez have all been spotted wearing her #1 most coveted style – the bias-cut silk “Claudia Cami” available in eight rich jewel tones. The “Claudia Cami” is just one piece of the core collection of silk separates, organic cashmere, Italian knits, denim, and upcycled faux fur, all designed to make women feel empowered and showcase the best versions of themselves.
