The weather just got SO cold, and actually I am loving it, perfect excuse for substantial outerwear. Oh and to answer some of your questions the boots are by Charlotte Olympia. More soon.

Mundane Places

DSC_0254

I wore this out one night and…it was kind of funny…them: “omg what is that???!??!” “your jacket is glowing!” me: “uhh..(runs away)” Fact: Maintenance on this jacket is expensive. For this to really work there needs to not only be some updates on the design (which we wouldn’t mind exploring further, thank you for all [...]

Before Dinner

DSC_0257

Still very hot (in the 90′s) but you know I’m not really one of those people that strips down because the temperature gets high…. and I knew the restaurant would be very cold (which it was, had my leather jacket half on the whole time). Now I am done with dinner, in …

Pink Arsenal

Every time a new design gets released through the shop I’m always humbled and surprised when people like something enough to buy it.

Luxirare x Leopard

Untitled-16

My obsession with Leopard calf hide will never go away. Leopard print is like Bacon or something. Sadly, the only thing I have left from all of these designs is the leopard coat with the hardware. This material is definitely my favorite to work with. I hope there will be more designs to come, here [...]

Red Blue Stripes

(Outfit: Leather striped top from Luxirare, Leather pants from Luxirare, and model’s own black converses), photos by Julia Chesky Yesterday I prayed Jefimija wasn’t so thin that these leather pants would end up being too loose- it would look so weird to safety pin or clip anything, only had 1 sample that fit me pretty [...]

Freshly baked

DSC_0004

Ha, no I didn’t bake this jacket, but actually… in a way …I did. One of the finishing touches to leather working (this technique is used for bags) is to literally blow dry the bag. This melts all the loose stitches. Of course one does not use a hair blow dryer, there’s a special heat [...]

Quilted

leather

Currently at the studio, finishing up batch #1 of jumpsuits and about to continue a quilted jacket that I started a month ago. Such a gorgeous, hot, day out. I’m indoors, on my 2nd redbull of the day! Love quilting on leather. About to start a whole series of jackets on quilting and padding. …
