LARDIERE merges art with fashion to celebrate the color and playfulness of life through high-impact, unique, prints. Each product is derived from an original Geoffrey Lardiere painting, transforming the artwork into collectible art to wear. Lardiere is the vision of father and daughter, artist and designer, Geoffrey and Brinley Lardiere. The collaboration was inspired by Brinley’s love for fashion and a desire to expand the artwork of established artist Geoffrey Lardiere onto clothing and accessories for the vibrant, confident woman. Through these wearable pieces of art, Geoffrey’s award-winning work can now be enjoyed in a broader sense, and travel on a journey beyond museum walls, collectors’ homes, corporate collections, or one of his many Art in Public Places installations.
Brinley is a sixth generation Floridian who comes from Florida’s former oldest banking family; after spending much time at the family’s beach house in Florida and summers in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan, much of the collection’s inspiration was drawn from the joyful colors reflected in the natural beauty of water, sky, and sunshine. The collection is also an ongoing memorial to Gia Lardiere, Geoffrey and his wife Ann’s oldest daughter and Brinley’s sister, who passed away during open heart surgery at the age of ten, and to the amazing power of the human soul to heal and transform loss into that which is graceful and authentic.
Our vision is to create a wearable and attainable luxury brand that encompasses our shared aspiration to celebrate life in a vivacious fashion. Our hope is for these timeless pieces to be passed on from generation to generation as vibrant symbols of classic, casual elegance. Fall in love with our colorful accessories, perfect for mothers or daughters, and ideal for taking you from boat to shore, at home or abroad. As you journey through life, always be sure to carry the beautiful with you ®—
