The New collection for 2015 is a vision of mixed motifs and contemporary styling.
The inspirations for their collections are “James Dean”, Urban landscapes, and of course flowers, flowers, flowers! This year stripes play a big role in multicolor layering combined with painterly roses and traditional arabesque lines. There are items styled for the dramatic woman; bright colors on a black base, and there are softer more nature-inspired palettes of brown, beige and taupe with a touch of coral.
The magic of Ivko, is that there is something for everyone. There are cozy coats for the cottage, elegant boiled wool coats for the finest occasion, but best of all, there are practical sweaters for the schoolteacher, the artist and the yoga instructor.
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!
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.
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!
That would be me reacting to my almost two year old who wants some attention and is walking around wearing winter boots, winter mitts and nothing else!

We are launching an online Ivko store! It’s about time!
http://store.katrinleblond.com/ Spring 2013 collection is bohemian and contemporary, romantic and urban. This year’s inspiration comes from many sources combined to create sweaters so dreamy and fresh, you might want to own two! Every year, there are new hand drawn renderings of botanicals. This year the Ivko flowers are often outlined in black and connected to curly ivy or vines.
For the not so boho woman, Ivko has mastered the graded stripe. Where colour blocking is the new trend this year, graded stripes are the Ivko interpretation, masterfully positioning fantastic colours in just the right combination for the “wow” effect.
Light and dreamy, the graded stripe cardigan is made from fine spun mercerized cotton. It has lace and solid knit jacquard sections. Sometimes gently transparent, it is perfect for Spring and Summer over a cami, or a dress. The splash of colour on the front panels is bright and contemporary. The back of the cardigan has graded stripes and an abstract feather pattern.
