COURTNEY KATES

Lola loves the brands we work with + the hearts behind them, we think you’ll love them too.


Meet Courtney Kates, owner and designer of luxe sleepwear brand Maison Du Soir.

Q+A with Courtney

When did you know that you wanted to be a designer?

I have an entrepreneurial spirit and finding a missing aesthetic in the sleepwear market ignited that passion. Designing a collection came so quickly and easily around my idea of reinventing our perception of sleepwear. So I didn’t necessarily decide I wanted to be a designer, it came about inherently as part of the process of developing a bigger idea. 

What are your biggest inspirations?

High fashion, travel and fairy tales. 

What has been the biggest hurdle you’ve had to overcome as a designer//business owner?

Accounting. There is no glamorous answer for this one. 

What has been the most rewarding aspect of owning Maison Du Soir?

Learning that I was stronger than I imagined and meeting incredible people along the way. 

What are your everyday go-to pieces?

The Petunia Tank is pretty much an everyday piece in the summer and the Greta long sleeve in the winter. They are just so easy and fit all my requirements: soft fabric, easy non-clinging silhouettes, covers all the right places, but still stylish and flattering.
