Every now and then I let myself get carried away with some unreasonable project that will take far too long to execute and that is when we make art here in the studio.  A few examples are here for you to see (and click on if you want to purchase).  The cat skirt is a second edition and comes in a black or charcoal ground.  The influence was a pop art. The mermaid skirt is the vision of our current intern Emma Bootman.  She has a great artistic eye.

Light and floaty, these blouses are like the sweetness of warm Spring days.  Exquisitely soft and only slightly sheer, this blouse is perfect for the buds of Spring or the high Summer heat.  Wear it for it’s beauty, or to cover from the sun.  Wear it loose or belted, wear it tucked in or out.  Can you tell that we just love it!Ivko blouse Spring 2016 Ivko black blouse silk cotton 2016 Ivko blouse pale pink 2016 ivko Canada USA online store

Ok, please forgive the ridiculous styling of this shot. That’s how Ivko styled their Spring 2016 shoot this year.

I know none of you will be wearing a leather fringe purse or a 70 headband, but hey, that chunky turquoise ring is kind of nice.

So I looked around my store one day and realized I had nothing with my classic storybook embellishments on them.  So I took the plunge into some ideas I had been dreaming of.  Here is the resulting production.

It may be the deepest of winter outside, but in the studio, and therefor my mind, it is all about Spring.

Here is a peek at things to come and the process of making them in my studio.

Sale time.  With new things on their way, I am feeling very motivated to clear out the old inventory.  I have just posted many styles on sale in the online store at www.katrinleblond.com.  I even put the Ivko on sale, though I usually don’t until much later in the sale season, but there wasn’t much, so I thought why not.

This year Ivko went in a new design direction:  Geometric, dots, circles, stripes.

It’s a refreshing alternative for those of us that already have many Ivko sweaters with florals and wallpaper motifs.

The Fall Collection is filling up the store.  This year I have focused on completing the needs of my boutique, by creating pieces that will be truly practical for a Northern climate and still feel feminine.  Her is a combo I am feeling particularly cute in.

The pants also come in black with a B+W polka dot cuff, a crazy colourful quilted floral print with black cuff, and a B+W herringbone all over.

The Off-the-shoulder ballerina top comes in red lace, grey floral, hot orang/red, B+W stripes.  It’s a nice piece for transitioning to Fall.  It has long sleeves, but because it is off-the-shoulder it feels like it has a Summer vibe.

Ivko Geometric coat back

The New collection for 2015 is a vision of mixed motifs and contemporary styling.

The inspirations for their collections are “James Dean”, Urban landscapes,  and of course flowers, flowers, flowers!  This year stripes play a big role in multicolor layering combined with painterly roses and traditional arabesque lines.  There are items styled for the dramatic woman; bright colors on a black base, and there are softer more nature-inspired palettes of brown, beige and taupe with a touch of coral.

The magic of Ivko, is that there is something for everyone.  There are cozy coats for the cottage, elegant boiled wool coats for the finest occasion, but best of all, there are practical sweaters for the schoolteacher, the artist and the yoga instructor.

Colour Her book

Never stop being creative!

This is my newest art project; a collaboration with graphic designer Iris Glaser.  We were inspired by a window display we painted in my store in December of fairies, Fridas and fashionistas.  (see pictures here)  A few months later we spent some time on the idea of a colouring book for girls and women that would reflect our current experience of art and feminism.  Mix and match was the perfect way to express our varied selves, ever changing and all ages.  Drawing from the comtemporary and the mythological, we created 12 plates that were fun and empowering images.  We chose cardstock so that the book can be used with watercolours as well as markers.  Making sure every head, torso and legs were equally fun and different, we made sure not to include stereotypical professions or princesses.  No princesses at all!  Believing we need to actively choose the images we surround ourselves with, our ladies show a diversity in their expression of femininity.

Here is my daughter Victoria working on her first mix.  She calls this one the ladybug girl.  She really loves the hair and the robot girl legs.
