Made from authentic Dutch wax prints by Vlisco Holland, this skirt is a piece of art. Planets and Space adorn the front and the back in white, purple and beige. It is meant to be worn high at the waist and there are two button options on the waistband. With deep pockets on either side, this skirt is both pretty and highly functional. It is trimmed in brown mesh.

These sweaters are for you: Forest Fairies, Fall Hikers, Cross-country Skiers, Dog-walkers, Leaf Rakers, Mothers, Lovers of fresh air! Brave the changing temperatures with warmth and JOY!

Delightful color combinations and beautiful motifs. The Royalty collection is this year’s pinnacle of jacquard design. It is pure perfection of detail and confection.

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!
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.

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.
Iris painted this spectacular mermaid singer.
The book is available for purchase online and in my boutique.
They are the most comfortable jeans on the market.
We carry only high rise and mid-rise jeans from sizes 25-34.
I feel like stabbing myself with scissors; it is so quiet in the store.
Luckily I have the production of the new collection in the Studio to keep busy and creative.
January is a creative time
2015 collection is inspired by:
40, 50, 60 & 70 year old REBELS
We are in full production of the Spring collection and have already devoted one wall of the store entirely to Spring styles. This year the collection is both versatile and feminine, sporty and romantic, and always soft and comfortable. I would even say that this collection is quite dreamy; sheer cottons in beautiful colors and as requested matching tops and skirts and jackets.
EVERYTHING IS MADE IN MONTREAL. Where it belongs!
That being said, it has been so quiet in the boutique, we are wondering…where is everyone? Don’t you love us anymore? Come for the studio sale next week, come for the 2015 collection, come because new clothing is good for your morale. Whatever your reason, when you are here WE WILL TREAT YOU LIKE THE GODDESS YOU ARE!
Here is my new zip-up available in black, grey, blue and fuchsia. It is a blend of sporty and dressy. The zipper piping is made by sewing strips of silk and knits onto printed cotton and then cutting this material into strips crosswise in the other direction. The result is a nice splash of colour. Textile jewelry in a way. This jacket has a two way zipper, thumb holes on the sleeve and pockets. Yes, pockets. No garment should be without them.
Hoodies used to be for jogging and weekends. Those days are no more!
Now hoods are appearing on dresses, tunics and I even made one in silk chiffon for a bride last summer. Below are two designs from my Fall 2014-15 collection. The jacket is slim cut with large pockets and a fairytale hood. The tunic is based on one of my all time best selling cuts (the sexy dress). It has 3/4 sleeves and a lined hood. Each style comes in 5 colours.

I just couldn’t do it anymore. It was starting to feel repetitive. Formulaic even. Flowers, ruffles, frills, lace, appliqué, embellishments. I just wasn’t feeling inspired to wear my own clothes. But I also feared that change would spell the death of my company, and I had a new baby to keep me up at night, so innovation was not on my mind. Banging out a sellable collection of pretty clothes was my goal and I kept the old flavor going way past it’s expiration date.
The I turned 39. The nine years are always trouble for me. I went through two weeks of “What am I doing?”, “How can I change this?”, “I don’t like what I am making.” It was a very moody period. Talking it through, walking it off, thinking, thinking, thinking. I decided I wanted to shake it up. I took all my flowery, ruffle and lace fabrics and dropped them off with one of my suppliers. I exchanged $2000 of fabric for $200 in credit. I felt like I was opening up some space.
Then I thought deeply about what I do best and what we (including me) want to wear. I came to the conclusion that I cannot escape the cozy shirts and stretchy jeans world of today. It’s what I want. It’s what I will offer.
I designed a collection based on high-tech athletic lines, classic sporty tops and new non-figurative details that still evoke the “Katrin Leblond” signature. Below you will find one of 4 tops for this Fall: The baseball top (with thumb-hole cuffs). It has a sleeve line that is raglan at the back and S-curve at the front shoulder all top stitched in ton-on-tone thread. The back panel is a soft double layer of viscose. It comes in 7 colours and retails for $88
The jeans are by yoga jeans and they are fantastic for layering under tops and tunics this Fall because of their zipper-less pull-0up waist line. They come in blue only and retail for $94
The sweater coat is by IVKO. It is 100% lambswool and has a two way zipper. I love the box pleat at the back. You can buy it online here. It retails for $397.
I do have an online store specially devoted to Ivko. You can find the biggest selection of Ivko in North-America in my store (or so my sales-rep says.)
