Understated luxury for every day — a collection of mix, match and layer wardrobe staples that take the stress out of getting dressed. With unfettered details, impeccable fit and timeless styling, these are the flattering and functional pieces you’ll reach for over and over, season after season.
Founded 20 years ago by Charleston native Pauline Nakios, who named the company after her grandmother, Lilla, and originally sought to create the “perfect tee,” Lilla P has grown into a global lifestyle brand, sold at specialty retailers around the world, including the Lilla P boutique in New York City’s Meatpacking District.
Abbey’s love for 1960’s era icons and design in addition to her eye for clean lines and flattering feminine proportions defines her unique style. Based in the heart of the South, Abbey takes inspiration from romanic Southern style and infuses it with a modern, sophisticated edge.The Abbey Glass style is aspirational, but approachable. The clothes are designed for the confident and strong woman that embraces femininity and a modern point of view.
The Atlanta native designer began her formal fashion education at Central Saint Martin’s at 18. Abbey moved back to the US to attend Rhode Island School of Design after her foundations year in London. Before graduating from RISD with a degree in Apparel Design, Abbey had the opportunity to work under Marc Jacobs and Francisco Costa at Calvin Klein Collection. She was a finalist in the Supima Design Competition runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in September 2012, which kickstarted her career.
Abbey and her team now work out of an Atlanta-based studio complete with a full service atelier and boutique-style showroom. Shop the Abbey Glass boutique at THE SHOPS in Buckhead Atlanta or in 70 other specialty retailers across the country!
