And Just Like That… we’ve made our small screen debut! 2022 has been a big year for L’Etoile Sport on TV. Some of our favorite characters served up our looks in two of the year’s most-talked about shows: HBO’s And Just Like That…, and Netflix’s Inventing Anna.
When we first got the call from the series’ stylists, we wanted to pinch ourselves. With the visionary costume designer Molly Rodgers back at the helm of the Sex and the City reboot, we were already incredibly eager to see all of her fabulous finds — so we were particularly delighted to learn we were one of them! We could not be happier to be included in a series that is known for its iconic style moments.
If you caught Charlotte York Goldenblatt (played by Kristin Davis) dominating the tennis court in a slew of heated matches on episode 7 of And Just Like That…, you spotted the quintessential Upper East Sider in our very own Lace Dress.
Much like Charlotte on the court this season, the dress is chic but no nonsense — a trendy yet timeless take on tennis whites that is as perfect for a few sets as it is for lunch at the club afterwards.
Charlotte’s refined, classic style has always been an inspiration, so it was surreal to see her on the court in our dress — which was in fabulous company alongside the Gucci tennis dress she wore during another match. If you watched the behind-the-scenes documentary of the series, there’s a brilliant clip which features Davis trying on different outfits in front of a sprawling rack of tennis whites — including several of ours.
Beyond the tennis club, our stylish and sophisticated pieces are made for movement on-and-off the court — jetsetting included. In February, our Pointelle Team Skort made it all the way to Morocco on episode 6 of Inventing Anna, where infamous scammer Anna Delvey’s friend and personal trainer Kacy Duke (played by the trailblazing actress and LGBTQ+ activist Laverne Cox) cut a fashionable figure on the clay courts of luxury Marrakech hotel La Mamounia.
To see our cult-classic skort on Cox’s character — who is the real-life celebrity trainer responsible for Dakota Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey physique — was another milestone moment for us. The costumes in every Shonda Rhimes production play a crucial role in the storytelling, from Bridgerton’s Regency-era looks to Inventing Anna’s faux-heiress, real-designer wardrobe. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be included alongside the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Givenchy and other designers sported by Anna and the other characters on the show.
When we’re not delightedly replaying the episodes, we’re busy imagining how much level-headed Kacy, and increasingly socially-conscious Charlotte, would love that we’re female-founded and ethically manufactured. Fingers crossed that in Season 2 we’ll see them in our golf line…
