From A Simple Tee, A Clothing Line Is Born
May 8, 2017
Always on the hunt for that perfect tee, Pauline Nakios decided to start her own company in 1998 and began with the essential tee and Lilla P was born. She launched the line with a single style- a short sleeve crew neck tee in one size and five different colors. Starting by going from store to store in the Atlanta area with the tees in hand, the collection has expanded into categories way beyond just tees. Lilla P is sold in over 1000 specialty boutiques worldwide, and both it’s flagship store and company headquarters of 25+ employees, are right here in the Meatpacking District.
“My goal is to design easy to understand pieces that become coveted items in any woman’s wardrobe—an everyday layering tank, a perfectly flattering tee, a cozy sweater or a chic dress. I am inspired by simplicity and details found in architecture, home décor, art, and the everyday aspects of our lives. I also love that my 24-year-old niece and my 82-year-old mother can both wear and love the clothing.” – Pauline
It has been nearly 2 decades since Pauline started this amazing company and she has taken Lilla P from one flattering tee to a whole line of approachable yet perfectly on trend clothing! View the whole collection on their website and check out a few of Pauline’s top picks for summer below.
