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.

This year’s collection was inspired by a variety of cultures and historical influences. The desire to maintain a folklore tradition is very important to the Ivko design team. Coupled with a need to make contemporary fashion pieces that can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans in an urban context and you have the perfect look for Fall. This year Ivko has taken motifs from Medieval woven tapestries, embroideries from British textiles and, as always, Eastern European knitwear.

The colour palettes are threefold: Reds combined with navy for a classic Northern urban look; Browns that mix with lavender and beige for a sophisticated, gentle, easy to wear mix; and Greys for the urban chic woman who wears a lot of black. As always Ivko has made skirt and sweater combinations that can be worn as a little two-piece suit worthy of a walk on 5th Avenue in New York! If you like compliments, you are sure to get them when you wear an Ivko suit. It’s bold. It’s playful. It’s unique!

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.

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!
