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.
There is something so fresh about a white leather jacket for Spring & the LAMARQUE Piper Studs in this light color is arguably my favourite for this season. The leather is the softest and thinnest that you’ll ever touch – promise! Built with a micro fit in mind, this jacket literally hugs your body so close and feels sooo comfortable thanks to the stretch lining.

Spring is officially here & for this season, I wanted to create that perfect transitional piece that will ease you into the warmer months! I knew it would be a bit chilly while I was in Paris and the LAMARQUE Penelope coat was that perfect item to have with me. Literally wear it over anything. It also looks so perfect worn over a leather jacket. It gives you that extra barrier of warmth & it looks sooo chic. It’s made out of a double face wool blend fabric and all the seams are entirely finished by hand which is super luxe. I’m especially loving this white color for spring – it instantly brightens up the mood & the wardrobe leading up to summer! It also comes in black which obviously is my fave colour 🙂 .

It’s officially Spring but it definitely doesn’t feel like it at all! When I looked out my window this morning, it seemed to be one of those early spring days that you can begin to feel the warmth. Nope. Absolutely not! Despite the current chill factor sitch, I’m still going to transition my spring pieces into my wardrobe. I couldn’t wait another day to wear these LAMARQUE Garnet leather shorts, so I simply paired them with nylons, boots and an oversize sweater. I already have several outfits lined up in my mind when I will be wearing these perfect leather shorts! With a tee and sneakers for a casual look on the go, with a pair of stilettos and a draped silk blouse on a date with my SO.. the possibilities are seriously endless!

This is one of my all time favorite LAMARQUE jackets – it works so well for those casual days of just jeans and a tee. It’s a vegetable tanned leather and heavily washed which gives it that worn in look. The beauty about it is that I’ve worn it so much that the leather has literally molded to my body. I’m also really loving a lacey bra underneath a tee with a low neckline. And these jeans are my absolute fave – trust me, I have gone through so many black jeans and these are the #1. I’ve literally bought them 3 times. They make you feel so slim – go, give them a try and see the magic!

This LAMARQUE oversize grey duster was the perfect coat to wear during my recent trip to Paris and, to be honest, I have literally been living in it ever since. It gives me such a boost of confidence as I walk – not only is the length totally dramatic but it has these high side slits that makes the fabric whip around as I walk and that feeling is everything. It’s made out of a wool blend double face fabric which makes the coat very light but still keeps the element of warmth. The beauty of double face wool is that the entire coat is finished by hand. The actual fabric is 2 pieces of wool held interlaces together and the garment pieces are all assembled by hand creating a totally luxurious item.
I styled the LAMARQUE Cordelia coat (shop here) with a LAMARQUE Haze silver leather skirt (available next month), a t-shirt I picked up from ultimate parisian boutique Colette (which I am so sad is closing 🙁 ), Adidas Stan Smiths (shop here) and a LAMARQUE leather clutch (available soon).
Patent is one of the major trends this season for FW17 and we will definitely see this trend continuing into the new year. I wear a lot of black and I love the different texture and shine that it adds to my wardrobe. The best part about this skirt is you can dress it up with a pair of heels and chunky sweater for chic & cozy look or you can dress it down by popping on a pair of white kicks and a hoodie with hoops. I’m wearing it here with the coziest chunky LAMARQUE sweater. Recently worn by Alessandra Ambrosio (see here), this skirt has been blowing out!

I always begin a season by visiting Première Vision – it is the most important global fashion tradeshow for the design industry and fashion professionals. All designers visit this tradeshow in search of inspiration, new fabrics, trims & accessories, leather and silhouettes for the new season. I always have an idea beforehand of what I am looking for but by the time the 3 day show is over, my initial idea has evolved into something else. We work 1 year in advance and it’s quite the challenge to design a collection that your customer doesn’t even know they want yet! They’re long days but they are so much fun and inspiring. 🙂
