Leather: A charistmatic uniform

img274

Without even knowing it, about a year and a half ago I designed a wardrobe simply out of necessity, if you could remember this set of clothing where I just changed the colors and patterns. At the time I also felt like I didn’t want to force any new ideas, ‘if you don’t have a […]

The lambo and the three jackets to go with it

tumblr_m17jg6Q7X21qzyhb5o1_1280

It is no surprise that this black matte lambo is ‘love at first sight’ material. Who needs an it-bag, when you can just stash your makeup and change of heels to sneakers in your trunk and pull out. With this car, you’d also need the perfect rotation of three jackets, here are some jackets that […]

Adidas & little Nike

DSC_0318

I don’t know what it is about Adidas but lately I think I’ll find just about any excuse to include a piece of triple stripe into my daily wardrobe. I like Nike as well but there is something about these triple white stripes, they’re instantly recognizable. This past year I’ve completely cleaned out my wardrobe, […]

Half-Sleeve Leather Hoodies

DSC_0037

Hey guys. I’m so over everything right now, really. Weather’s cold outside, making my way out of dream state at 4-5 am, I’m just craving warmth under the covers, and I’m this close to jetting down south for warmer climates. Why can’t spring come sooner? This blasĂ© feeling is definitely going to influence the way […]

Breakfast with Luxirare

DSC_4685

One of my new years resolutions was to let you guys in on my life a little bit. I think one of the most intimate moments during the day is Breakfast, where you make the shift between dream state to reality. Mornings are always a struggle for me, I get up very early every day […]

Before another year ends…

Anastasia Radevich x Luxirare collabo jacket. Oh god you guys, I don’t know how much longer this blog will last haha. Just looking at these photos, it makes me really exhausted, sometimes in the studio I have those moments where I secretly (or at least in my dreams) escape my workspace, never see another piece […]

Luxirare Fall/Winter 2011: Convertible Shearling

DSC_0010

Since last year I’d been working on an outerwear series (on and off) and finally it feels like the right time to share. With this group I focused on taking inspiration from convertible cars, airplanes, classic aviator jackets and most important: our modern lifestyles. The main point of this whole thing was to really emphasize […]

Night Riders

The first time I met Anastasia Radevich was for lunch at Fred’s (Barney’s top floor)- this was almost like 8 months ago… I was excited to meet her- from her designs I could only assume that she was  very smart and talented. We ended up having a four hour lunch, and out of that lunch […]

5 days of the week

DSC_0096

Lately I’ve really been in a strange place- at least outfit wise. I wear black, all the time (not even charcoal or navy things, just black). I have these Mossimo long sleeve crew neck shirts from Target (about 40 identical) and I wear them EVERY SINGLE DAY. I feel paralyzed without them.. but I …

You guys didn’t think I’d leave you stranded with a million travel/food photos..did you?? I shot this post before I left the country, didn’t plan to finish before I left, but I took some time out during this trip to edit them. I figured it would be unfair to bombard you with macro shots of […]

Laser cut leather

DSC_6465

Most of the details for this leather two-piece outfit were inspired by things I’ve been learning thus far from bag making. I included close up photos of the jacket’s details first because that was where the design actually started, from bag construction elements…Press stud snaps (a closure common for bags), suede bands and …

Studded Jacket

DSC_0007

I was cleaning out my room and I found a million studs from my senior year at university (posted about this a few days ago, finally got around to finishing the lining), so I had to find a way to use them. It wasn’t easy studding this jacket because I had to rip the lining […]

Chain Stitch Jacket

I purchased this black lacy cardigan from NastyGal, a vintage store run by Sophia Amoruso (clearly a boss a with good taste). Nasty Gal has become one of my favorite vintage shops on the web. This nude bodysuit is from Agent Provocateur. I am a sucker for lacy, dainty lingerie but I …

Margiela Moto Jacket, paper cut out concept. Margiela Jacket, Luxirare Grid Shirt, Balenciaga boots. Happy New Years, and I hope everyone had a great x-mas. I never make resolutions because the real resolutions that happen come unexpectedly, and they don’t ever happen on NYE…like this blog for example, I never made a resolution to keep […]

Chain Jacket

_DSC5387

Today’s post provides a little sneak peak through the process of making a Luxirare Chain jacket. It all starts with a shoe, some messing around, some drawing, some muslin fitting, and then onto the final prototype. YSL CAGE BOOTS Out of all the shoes I’ve seen through a couple of seasons now, these YSL cage […]

Memorabilia

_DSC7312

Michael Jackson. It would be redundant of me to write out his achievements. We all have a different memory of him. What I find flawed about mass produced memorabilia is that each of our memories of him are unique, and as such Memorabilia should be unique. Some prefer the child Michael Jackson …

Floating Fur

I often get pigeon holed into an idea when I am going through the process of constructing a garment. Last year when I was working on my thesis I got obsessed with stitching together different fabrics together, i.e. patchwork. I experimented mainly with spandexy textures, as well as lace. These below are my first …

9-5, then 7-3. Lets start with 9-5 first. The best non-label label in the whole world. Now onto Luxirare’s invisible uniform. A simple shift dress with princess seams and a v-top stitch. This muslin may look easy but shift dresses with princess seams are actually one of the hardest things to fit. But then again, […]
