Ted Lapidus

Ted Lapidus French fashion designer who redefined chic with the '60s unisex look. Lapidus created his label in 1951 and in '63 became a member of the Paris fashion club that runs haute couture, La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. His sandy-colored safari suit became an emblem of the modernist Lapidus style, with lines that swept the international fashion scene in the '60s and '70s. Today, the Lapidus label survives mainly through accessories such as fragrances and watches.
