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.
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.
This passed Thursday, we held the launch of the KGMTL X LAMARQUE Capsule Collection at our downtown Montreal store. It was such a wonderful evening filled with shopping and noshing! The energy throughout the event was amazing and the reaction to the collection was such a success!
The collection was made for real women with real bodies – covering our imperfections while highlighting our best features! KGMTL has been such an inspiration for so many girls – she’s been so many different sizes and knows a thing or two about feeling and looking her best. I started following her earlier on when she was starting out and I loved her confidence and everything she was about so I instantly knew I needed to do a collab with her!
The capsule consists of 6 essential items to make your feel and look your best. The KG High Waist leggings which are soo amazing on since we incorporated a Spanx like construction in the waistband – they literally feel like you put on your favourite workout leggings and have been instantly photoshopped! The KG Mini Skirt with expertly cut panelling to avoid that dreaded tummy pooch. The KG Biker Jacket that is cut at the right length to accentuate your waist and it also has this light quilted lining that I love so much! The KG Henley Bodysuit that is body hugging and soo soft you’ll never want to take it off! The KG Henley Top made out of a soft ribbed cotton and curved hem that covers the bum. The KG Leather Bodysuit that is such a timeless and sexy piece – you can also pair this piece with the skirt to have a leather dress look!
