“I live on the West Side of Los Angeles, so the new store feels like a really direct way to speak to my customer,” said Lieberman, who just opened a New York store in TriBeCa. “I think it’ll be my go-to spot,” she said of Palisades Village, which will also be home to Zimmermann, Cynthia Rowley and Sephora Studio, among others.

The designer stayed true to the brand’s staple minimalist shapes, with soft volumes and understated details. Skirts and dresses were feminine, showing plenty of architectural pleats that added movement to skirts or running down a tunic dress. Some of the plissé effects were made with silk georgette and strips of leather in contrasting colors. Deconstructed jackets, oversize shirts and loose pants with slit details and side “wings” contributed to the ease of the looks — although the latter were at times a bit tricky. Giada’s sophisticated luxury was emphasized by the fabrics, including silk and cashmere double, and dégradé designs. Delicate jewel pieces were worn as ankle bracelets or as footwear details.
Celebrating the designer’s relationship with the art world, two never-before-published letters by 19th-century writer Alessandro Manzoni were donated to the Braidense National Library during the presentation inside the Brera Picture Gallery in Milan, which opened up exclusively for the event.
