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.

I’ve literally rotated this skirt all summer – it’s literally my favorite item in my closet right now even though I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet. It makes me feel so elegant & confident every time I wear it – and it’s been on repeat for real! Good news is that it is on sale along with the rest of the SS18 collection – Happy Shopping!

See how I edged it up with the Onia Oversized Muscle Tank in my post about my recent trip to MEXICO!

GAZA ONIA WHITE

Quick 1 week getaway to Mexico for a friend’s wedding! It was so much fun being with friends and having a week to relax! I packed with me only the lightest and easiest to pair pieces that work well together for different combinations. We stayed at the ROYALTON and we were blown away 🙂

Probably the most worn combination of the summer has to be a good pair of denim and a white tee. The AURA tee stands out from the norm with a beautiful blend of jersey and poplin fabric both made from cotton. A little textile 101 here : a jersey is a type of knitting method typically used in your favorite t-shirt while poplin is woven fabric typically used in shirting. The idea was to deliver an elevated basic that you can wear over and over and over again. The fit is looser around the waist for comfort and the added asymmetric ruffle detail takes this top to another level.

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
