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!
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.
New headpieces made after returning from an inspiration trip to Mexico. The land of colour!

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
