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.

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.

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.

Back in the office and tackling the last bits of our FW 1819 production and also moving along our SS19 sampling. Already end of June, time is passing way too fast! Wearing the LAMARQUE Reiko Button Down Blouse and our signature Kelly Stretch Leather Leggings. I’m loving the twist on the classic white button down – the asymmetric closure, longer length and exaggerated sleeves are everything! Pair it with a slim fit bottom to make sure that you look long and lean. The elongated length hits just below the bum which makes it all that more easy to wear. What I love the most is that immediate sharp feeling you have when you put this blouse on <3
