 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.

Katrin Leblond Baseball top

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.

The new Ivko collection has arrived.

Stunningly beautiful, this Fall Winter collection was designed with inspirations from Turkish tile mosaics, traditional Russian Flower embroidery and natural botanical leaves.  It contains three main colour palettes that complement different complexions and skin tones.  Dark rich reds are combined with navy and mustard yellow, The earth tones are combined with lavender for a beautiful soft look and the Greys are mixed with pink, plum and light blue.

The sweaters come in different wights; some light and thin, some thicker that can be worn as a Fall coat, all of them super soft.  Whether you are looking for a sporty ski chalet look, or an elegant office cardigan, Ivko has it all in this Fall collection.

Long and drapey, this is your everyday cardigan for summer evenings and air conditioned offices.  Made from high end rayon-viscose yarn, it is super soft and feels incredible on bare skin.  Ivko yarns are extremely luxurious.  The raspberry color has been our best seller this summer, but the mud brown is perfect for the red-head earth tone girl.  The back detail of hand drawn lines that descend the back in a v-pattern is very flattering on the bum.  This cardigan feels like a work of contemporary textile art.  Ivko, you’ve done it agaion! shop now

I love this linen dress.  It is made from knit linen, so it won’t wrinkle and crinkle the way linen often does.  It comes in raspberry and black as well.  The hem is knitted with a beautiful lacy pattern and the tone on tone screen printing adds a touch of wallpaper whimsey.

The dress below was sold out all over North America and at the last minute, I got a shipment of them!  Yay!  It think it is just gorgeous.  Made from fine mercerized cotton, it is soft, comfortable and cut just right to flatter the body nicely.  The waist is a little bit loose and a reversible belt can be added, but I wear mine without.

My newest creation:  a purple wedding dress!

How happy was i to make this dress?  Very happy.  I even did it at a discount because I was so inspired by the idea of making it.  All the lace was hand cut and appliqued with the help of double sided fusing.  Choosing a stitch color that didn’t show was tricky.  We had to choose a dusty lavender that didn’t show on the mesh with the purple shining through.  The lovely bride is getting married in France; lucky girl!  Blessing on her wedding.
