DARK ELEGANCE

I love a good maxi length coat – there is this simple yet elegant look and feel about it. And the beautiful aspect about this LAMARQUE Cordelia coat is that it’s made out of this soft double face wool blend fabric, which means that it’s lightweight and entirely finished by hand at every seam.

Pairing it here with an oversized light grey sweater, mini suede skirt and knee high boots for a look that is weekend appropriate.

80’S BABY

As an 80’s baby, I needed to created a jacket that pays homage to that era. I was so into creating this perfect silhouette made out of the softest and drapiest leather. With deep armholes, shoulder pads and a crop length – the LAMARQUE Dylan moto jacket is literally life. 

All the styles we design are so much fun to create but this one was a riot. Our patternmaker Richard, who is such a character and absolutely the most talented patternmaker in entire country, totally felt the sketch of this style within his core since he used to go out to parties and make his outfits during those years! He had no base template to start from so he had to create this pattern entirely from scratch. And of course, when I tried on the first prototype of this jacket, he literally nailed it. As I recall, we only had to shift a belt loop.

The reaction to the DYLAN has been amazing. It’s been worn by Mariah Carey (which is sooo cool), Olivia Culpo (& she is smoking, see the post here) and has been featured in L’Officiel magazine. But the ultimate best feeling is Revolve re-ordering it over and over and having it worn by all these amazing cutting edge beauties.

EVERYDAY EDGE

There is something so effortless yet chic of a lightweight knit sweater worn with a pair of leggings and especially in leather – it adds just the right amount of edge. These leggings are from our current KGMTL X LAMARQUE collaboration and they have this incredible waist construction that actual has a thick elastic built in so it literally sucks everything in like a pair of Spanx! I dressed them up with a pair of patent pumps and the DAYA sweater worn off the shoulder. I love the asymmetric angles of this sweater – it’s so elevated and versatile.

Whenever I travel, I always make sure to pack outfits that coordinate easily – especially if I’m bouncing around frequently. On my recent trip to Milan, I brought along my LAMARQUE Harper Moto jacket in luggage. Not only is this longer length so comfortable because it covers my upper hip area, but the colour is just so rich and is so easy to pair. The leather is so soft to the touch and this jacket was made with an action-back detail for optimal comfort. Running off to a business lunch, I paired it with an off white turtleneck and high waist black denim with suede booties.

I’m a firm believer of high quality classic items in your closet and styling them in different ways. Here I am wearing the LAMARQUE KIERA Double Face Wool coat casually with jeans and a chunky sneaker to walk around the city and shop. It has this city street cool girl vibe all while being so comfortable – I usually walk about 15 kms a day every time that I am in Europe so being comfortable is definitely one of my top priorities!

Fall time in Paris is just so beautiful. It’s my favourite time of year to visit and I always get so excited when packing my suitcase since I get to bring all these amazing leather pieces with me. I always visit Paris twice a year – there is this major fashion industry trade show that goes on where they showcase the trending colors and silhouettes for the upcoming FW1920 season. A blazer is an absolute must and this LAMARQUE ELODIA leather blazer is that perfect blend between business and casual chic.

I’ve literally rotated this skirt all summer – it’s literally my favorite item in my closet right now even though I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet. It makes me feel so elegant & confident every time I wear it – and it’s been on repeat for real! Good news is that it is on sale along with the rest of the SS18 collection – Happy Shopping!

See how I edged it up with the Onia Oversized Muscle Tank in my post about my recent trip to MEXICO!

Probably the most worn combination of the summer has to be a good pair of denim and a white tee. The AURA tee stands out from the norm with a beautiful blend of jersey and poplin fabric both made from cotton. A little textile 101 here : a jersey is a type of knitting method typically used in your favorite t-shirt while poplin is woven fabric typically used in shirting. The idea was to deliver an elevated basic that you can wear over and over and over again. The fit is looser around the waist for comfort and the added asymmetric ruffle detail takes this top to another level.
