Lysse: We’ve all experienced this.You just have nothing that goes from morning errands to business meeting to date night. Nothing that survives a coffee spill without a trip to the dry cleaner.

A pair that was effortless and comfortable. Easy to care for. AND flattering and fashionable. With that extra special something that’s OUR little secret*. Well she succeeded. Lyssé was born. www.Lysse.com
