KATHERINE LANDE

“Well-known fashion stylist and now-owner of hot retail store LaunchPad, Katherine Lande and her partner, Nicole Munder, have the best eyes when it comes to fashion. Lande can make any choice look like it came from the Paris couture shows, and her personal style always makes us stop and take notice.
Your personal style? My personal style is a mix of effortless and fashion-forward. With my hectic schedule, I like to keep everyday wardrobe choices as simple as possible while still looking au courant with seasonal trends.
Favorite designer and why? I am definitely an accessory girl. Whether it’s a killer heel, a statement piece of jewelry or a bold lip, a great accessory instantly elevates your look. Some of my favorites are designers like Chanel and Jimmy Choo.
What are your favorite pieces? Being a stylist, I try not to take fashion too seriously, so I/m always having fun with my looks.
Where do you shop in Palm Beach? LaunchPad, of course! I love Aerin Lauder’s Palm Bach store and Caroline Rafferty’s The Grand Tour.”

NICOLE MUNDER

“As the other partner in the fabulous rotating retail space LaunchPad, Nicole Munder is all parts mother, business woman and fashionista. She sets the standard for the hottest trends in Palm Beach with a keen eye for cutting-edge and classic trends.
Your personal style? My personal style evolves on a weekly basis! Being a busy mom of three young children, I dress by the day and, occasionally, by my mood.
Favorite designer and why? I am not particular loyal to one designer. I simply love all fashion- having been exposed as a fashion show and event producer at Vogue. You can’t ask a fashion girl who her favorite designer is… It’s like asking a mom to pick a favorite child!
What are your favorite pieces? Right now, an embroidered pair of Alice + Olivia jeans, La Ligne trousers, a Veronica Beard blazer, a Givenchy cotton ruffle blouse and an animal-print Azzedine Alaia dress.
Where do you shop in Palm Beach? I’m all about girl power and female entrepreneurs, so it’s no surprise that the House of Lavande is one of my beloved go-to destinations. I also love LaunchPad. I’ve easily become one of our top customers!”
