Nature Forest Bride

This dress was made for Andrée and is the first example of the Divine dress from my Spring 2014 collection.

It is a layer of sheer silk chiffon over ivory jersey.  We stitched linen lace onto the under layer (not visible in the photo).  The top panel of the dress is a piece of vegetable dyed silk and the bride added some beads to the neckline herself.

Katrin Leblond Spring Dress and Ivko cardigan

This is my feather mandala dress.  I feel like it has magical powers and is charged with the purpose of making women feel beautiful and powerful.  But that is another story…. I wanted to show you how incredible it looks with this light brown Ivko cardigan.  It is gorgeous.  They were made to be together!  I always love it when two designers’ collections go so well together.  I have always felt that Ivko sweaters were designed for my store.  They complement my clothes so perfectly.

That being said, the Spring collections are in the store now!  Ivko, KL, Arianne, Metamorphose, Yoga jeans and Ayala Bar.

If you want to shop for any of these brands, check out our online store.  Shop here!

Bonjour Katrin,

J’espère que tu vas bien. Je suis passée à la boutique juste avant Noël pour y voir les changements. Super! J’espère aussi que ta méga-vente fonctionne à merveille et que tu as pu créer de l’espace pour tes futures créations.

J’ai eu envie de te partager quelques une des photos qui ont été prises par Pierre Reydon, photographe, dans la très belle campagne malgache, dans la région des hauts-plateaux. Car ce sont tes vêtements que j’ai porté pour la majorité du shooting. Tes vêtements me suivent partout et je suis bien dedans… Aujourd’hui c’est un samedi ordinaire et pourtant, je porte ta jupe d’inspiration mexicaine en coton avec un imprimé fleuri magnifique et de la dentelle dans le bas. Pourquoi faudrait-il garder les vêtements qui nous font sentir belle que pour les grandes occasions?  Alors j’avais juste envie de te dire “keep on the good work”!

Prend soin des tiens,

Marie-Claude

Wearing dresses in the Winter is great! But not always easy or warm.

A few easy ideas or accessories will make your wardrobe a little more manageable.

Take this summer dress, for example.

Sexy Dress B+W with circles embellishment by Katrin Leblond Montreal designer

Option A:  Add a black turtleneck underneath.  Preferably something not too thick so that you don’t notice where the waistband ends.  This is a more sporty, casual look.

Sheer turtleneck by Montreal Designer Katrin Leblond

Col roule noir par Designer Montrealais Katrin Leblond

I sell turtle necks in black, red and blue…all on the 50% off rack right now.

IMG_2719

Option B: Add a bolero.  I make 4 different models in all possible colors.  This one ties in the front and has full length sleeves.  This is a more elegant, feminine option.

Bolero by Montreal designer Katrin Leblond

Choose a dress with a lining, or buy a slip.  In the winter we wear thick tights, or leggings under everything.  Dresses often cling to your layers and don’t fall and drape properly, not to mention the static created by some carpets!

The Gabriella dress (below) has a built in lining.

Black dress with sheer overlay at bust by Katrin Leblond Montreal DesignerDresses with long sleeves are hard to find.  We have winters that are colder than most, so designers are not designing with us in mind.  They are designing for all of North America and more moderate climates.  That is why some Fall/Winter collections are very un-wintery.  Below is my long sleeve Sara Dress in Black with silk multicolor embellishments.

More long sleeve dresses (3/4 sleeve actually).  Some women prefer 3/4 sleeve, but I think the problem often stems from not having sleeves hemmed to the exact right length.  At the boutique we offer an alteration service on anything purchased here, and I encourage you to always make things fit just right even if it means taking off only an inch.

Based on the Ana top, this dress does everything right on women’s curves!

The diagonal lines are amazing at camouflaging a little tummy and the double layer skirt is perfect for pantie-line.

We can hem the sleeves to any length, 3/4, short or cap-sleeve.

Here is my art buddie Iris!  We love crafting together.  She is a  brilliant artist (mostly watercolour) and a great graphic designer.  She designed my logo and just about all of my corporate branding. We spent a few evenings together over the holidays and decided to collaborate on some paintings together.  I dug out some blank canvases and acrylic paints.  The goal was to paint her something for her office and we decided to paint some Frida portraits.  Afterwards we felt like, with more time, we would love to paint a dozen of them, and some monkeys and parrots too.

I named this top after my current pattern-maker Patricia:  The Patti top.

She is a genius and she always understand what I am trying to convey in my sketches.  This top is the perfect expression of what I wanted:  A generous drape over the bust with a panel that gently covers the stomach, all the while staying fitted and feminine.

We made it from XS-XXL and it retails at $88

(It’s also an amazing top for breastfeeding!)

Happy Halloween dear friends and witches!

 I can’t believe I have never been Frida before!  It took me 15min to get dressed like this in the morning.  My wardrobe is fully equipped to dress 10 Frida’s and my jewelry collection suits her just fine.

 Oh, how I wish she were still alive and I could invite her to my store.  I would love to have dressed Frida for real.

In this outfit I feel beautiful and powerful and feminine.  An amazing trio of emotions to feel when you look in the mirror.  Thank you Frida for everything you created and stood for.
