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.
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.
The legendary songstress Mariah Carey wearing the LAMARQUE Pink Dylan Leather Jacket leaving Craig’s restaurant in Hollywood couple weeks ago – seriously a pinch me moment! <3
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.
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.
Hi Everyone! Back from a brief fashion hiatus – it’s been a whirlwind over here at LAMARQUE over the past few weeks as we prep our SS19 collections! I had also gone away for a wedding in Mexico, showed all of you all that on my Insta and I’ll be posting about that very soon too!
As for our news over here at the HQ, as you know, we have another line of Vegan leather so we’ve all been doubled up with prepping both collections for SS19! SO much to do and so exciting – they are both looking so good! Can’t wait to share with you guys what we’re up to over the next few weeks!
