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.

I illustrated this window display with my artist friend Iris Glaser over the holidays.  Initially we were going to do a big red and purple gradation starburst, but after the primer went on, the plans changed.  We started with the fashionable females:  Frida, fairies, mermaids and princesses, but there was still quite a bit of blank space that needed filling.  Flying vulvas?  I asked.  YES!  she replied.

The night life of Trees

 What a delightful purchase.  It took me a total of 1 second to decide I was going to buy this book.  One look at the cover and I was ravenous for more.  Each page is filled with screen printed images of magical trees.  I grabbed a few snapshots with my phone to share with you.  If you need to own it too, go to Drawn and Quarterly on Bernard.

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!

Feathers are always very glamorous and they have been appearing in earrings for quite some time now.

I love feather jewelry because it allows you to make a big statement, add a touch of colour and feel glam all at the same time.  Feathers have a history of being worn in hats, headdresses and then there is always the feather boa.  But I want to tell you how to wear feathers in the day to day.  Why?  Because feathers allows you to make a statement without doing very much else to your  wardrobe.  They can be added to a dress or a t-shirt.

Here are a few tips when purchasing feather jewelry:

1.  There is such a thing a too much:  Unless it is for a gala event, don’t wear a fully plumed garment.

2. Be aware of how tribal feathers can look.  I love tribal fashion and all things that make you feel like a powerful woman goddess.  That being said, long feather earrings to your waist should be saved for very special ceremonial type occasions.

3. Cheap feathers will always look like they came from the dollar store.  You know the ones i mean… they come in bright colours and often have black dots.  Don’t buy them.  Don’t wear them.

4.  Be ethical in your feather consumption.  Exotic birds are killed for feathers.  Purchase feather jewelry from artists that use naturally fallen feathers, vintage feathers and rooster feathers.

5.  Take good care of your feather jewelry.  It is fragile, should not get wet, is hard to clean and can be easily lost.  Feather earrings have a tendency to fly away without you even noticing.

6. Try something other than feather earrings.  Feather earrings are a bit over done in fashion right now.  Try something a bit different:  necklaces, cuffs, belts.

  This necklace presents a new take of the feather ornament.  Green is one of those colours that a lot of women feel they cannot wear (I don’t agree by the way, there are a lot of greens out there…. and there is a green for every one of you.)

It softens the framing of the face.  That means it is great combined with glasses, geometric haircuts, straight hair, up-dos and tailored clothing.

The necklace above is by Samsara Concept.  We have them at the boutique in blue, emerald and black.

MONTREAL – Call it circus chic.

Katrin Leblond celebrated five years of her colourful designs this week with a party featuring some of her favourite private clients: trapeze artists and contortionists.

In a long hibiscus-print dress and holding her 2½-month-old daughter, Victoria, the designer greeted clients, family and friends at her boutique on St. Laurent Blvd. as the trapeze artists swung above a small catwalk and the contortionist toasted Leblond with a glass held between her toes.

Also to mark the anniversary, Marie Cornellier published a book celebrating feminine beauty, the designer’s spirit and a collection she created in which each garment had an intent.

That involved asking her friend and clients to submit wishes, Leblond explained. She then put the phrases into Google images.

“It’s sort of the most international feedback on how to turn those words into pictures,’’ she said. “I wanted it to mean something,’’ she said of the collection.

What emerged included a dress of grey-green elephant appliqués, the result of her mother’s wish to save the creatures, another of vegetable patterns based on an organic garden wish, and one printed with a map of the world, pinned with hearts for where you might wish to be.

Five years in business on the Main have been tough, but rewarding, Leblond said, noting that it takes tremendous energy to keep things running well. Sales dipped when she took two months off for the baby.

The designs include easy stretch pieces, cotton frocks in plaid or with kitschy condiment prints, and Leblond’s wedding dresses, another custom specialty. In addition, there are a handful of local designers on the racks, including Maillagogo and Melow.
