Larger chests, curvy bodies and floating through the flower market. Here at Katrin Leblond Design we have many dresses that will do the trick. We’ve tried on six of them for you. They are a splashy blend of our in house production as well as designs from Ivko and Christine Lelievre that will make flaunting your favorite colors easy. They are all available in-store and online

1. Floral Heart Dress 

Floral heart dress is a vintage inspired dress that will bring out your voluptuous curves. Christiane Lelievre designs are particularly suited for larger busts; the straps are wide and the sweetheart neckline is delightfully suggestive.

2. Apple Blossoms 

Katrin Leblond’s most recent collaboration with Christiane Lelievre is the result of a chance encounter while shopping for flowers…well, the kind you might find in a textile warehouse, that is. For this dress, Apple Blossoms, the pair chose an eye-catching and stretchy bright blue fabric with flamboyant orange, white and pink blossoms.

                                                                                                                                       Photo: Apple Blossom dress (Christin Lelievre), Katrin Leblond Design

3. Ivko Peace dress

Can larger busts be at peace with a higher neckline? While most generic fashion articles would say no, this Peace dress  says “why not ” ? In any case,  its hard to resist a dress with such colorful and expressive embroidery. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Photo: Peace dress (Ivko), Katrin Leblond Design

3. Fairy dress (Katrin Leblond)

And here is the fairy dress. Imagine yourself, a warm Sunday afternoon fluttering among the hanging flower baskets, being beautiful.

5. Navy blue tile dress (Ivko)

This Navy blue tile dress is a comfortable and elegant choice for market day. It is 100% cotton knit with celtic knots and climbing vines on each side of the bodice. It suites large and small bust sizes alike and as with many other Ivko dresses, it is knit with jacquard motifs on both the front and the back.

                                                                                                                                                                       Photo: Navy Tile dress (Ivko),  Katrin Leblond Design         

6. Bird on a wire T and Cosmic skirt (Katrin Leblond)

We have a lot of great outfits to sing about. And yes, just like these birds, we are tooting our own horn. This T-shirt is in honor of Montreal’s own Leonard Cohen. Also picture is the high waisted Cosmic skirt, made with 100% Dutch cotton, a very high quality fabric. Photo: Bird on a wire t-shirt and Cosmic skirt, Katrin Leblond Design

Not everyone loves Ivko for the bright pink coats, the coral cardigans and the folkloric motifs.  Sometimes Ivko is classy, sometimes elegant, sometimes inspiringly simple.

Here we are showing the Temple collection.  A group of Ivko styles inspired by sacred places, beautiful mosaics and sacred geometry.  Each photo is linked to our online store where they can be purchased in both US and Canadian currency.

ohhh.

ahhh.

Printed on cotton/silk blends, these lightweight (but not see-through) pieces are dreamy and delicious.  Combine them with Ivko jacquard-knit cotton sweaters for perfect layering.  The white embroidered dress is made of stretch-cotton and features  peace-dove and flowers motif…I think it would make a great wedding dress for a simple country wedding.

First let me say thank you!

 Thank you for the life I live as a creative entrepreneur.  Thank you to the artists and designers I have collaborated with to illustrate these prints, manifest these classic-cut patterns and sew this high quality swimwear.  I am grateful that I get to make and print my designs on locally made textiles in a city that still supports all levels of the textile industry.  This creative, yet industrial production circle all takes place within a 10k radius of my store.  

This is the goddess one-piece swimsuit.  It is fully lined and available in XS-XXL

This is the goddess bikini, a classic cut with decent support, fully lined and available in XS-XL

This is the duffle bag made from fast-drying poly-canvas.  Perfect for yoga/sport/beach/snorkeling gear.

This is the swim/sport set.  Perfect for the life of an active person who needs one thing for everything.  The sports bra combines well with the leggings as well.  Fully lined and available in XS-XL

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.

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.

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
