MORNING MEETINGS

I usually always take my coffee black but I do occasionally love a good cappuccino with oat milk – it’s really such a treat. I had a meeting in the Old Port so I popped into Flyjin Cafe for a quick pick me up. Here, I’m wearing the LAMARQUE Brenda jacket in black with the Sora tee in White. This jacket has been one of our best sellers since it’s so versatile and the subtle detailing on the sleeves gives it the right amount of novelty.

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.

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.

Definitely one of my favourite items this season is this leather trench coat. It’s so badass and a confidence booster like no other. The sharp shoulders, low slung belt and thin leather all come together beautifully in this ultimate power trench.

LAMARQUE FW18 CAMPAIGN VIDEO

It was so much fun shooting the LAMARQUE FW18 Campaign in Toronto this season especially because I’ve never done a night shoot before and I had wanted to do one for some time now. The idea of it was so intriguing and perfect for the narrative. It was dark, cold and wet – only amplifying the drama.

The star of our shoot, Dauphine from Elmer, was the ultimate gorgeous secret agent – perfectly transitioning between 2 aliases in a gritty setting during the night.
