Setting goals and sticking to them …

IMG_5169

It’s true. I am obsessed with sewing on this machine, it’s an industrial machine and it’s quite like driving. Sometimes it does not cooperate with me, and other days this dear little engine is very nice … Either way I always pray a little beforehand because sewing leather is hard enough, I don’t need more […]

iPhone 5 Purses

DSC_0941

If you can remember a while ago I designed those iPhone wallet necklaces…and now it was time for a purse that could fit the iPhone 5, plus a little wiggle room. Meaning you can fit more stuff in there, and wear it as a purse. You can see the older iPhone 4 bags, and visually […]

Snakeskin Envelopes

DSC_0852

New in, snakeskin calf-hide purses. Slightly updated versions of the original envelope designs. Right now I love these chain straps, kind of thin but still strong, and these are detachable so you can carry it as a clutch. And these closures are finished with leather cords, but actually it’s more for embellishment, the real closures […]

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 […]

LXR Keychains

DSC_0379

For the holidays, some considered keychains…Last december, I never really thought about what would make for reasonable gifts, but this year I wanted to focus on small items that everyone can play with. I should have posted this weeks ago but the hectic holidays have really set me back! This envelope purse is derivative of […]

Monday off, scarves on

DSC_0090

Yesterday, Monday, for a while had been DYING to check out Dia:BEACON. Finally I had been able to coordinate a date…and I am going to go back next weekend or the weekend after. But while I was there I just also thought I’d kill two birds. You haven’t had a chance to see the rest […]

Tube Scarves

DSC_0251

My excuse for posting the last set without any styling or modeling them was quite simple. I love being behind the camera, I cringe every time I have to get in front of one, when you work with one of your friends, or even a stranger .. or a family member…who is willing to take […]

Going Purse-less

IMG_4180

Recently I’ve noticed a surge of women not taking to purses, leaving more at home, and only bringing essentials. You may think the items in my photo below are my essentials. They are not actually. Or the cigarette box and lipstick are not, haha. The box and lipstick are shipping necessities for the Motovest. As […]

Black Crocodile

DSC_0425

This updated design is another spinoff on those crocodile bags, remember those? When I went to Staples for inspiration? Well this time I had to go all black on black on black, with those crocodile style wallet necklaces… Now I had to follow a similar design strategy to that same post, to treat this crocodile […]

Nude on Nude

IMG_3684

Recently I experienced a really nice coincidence of sorts. This Celine shirt has this nude strip running down the center front closure, and of course I had to pair my harness in raw leather (also nude) with it. And on top of that my friend created some artwork for my Rick Ross album (but actually […]

Netted & Pleated

DSC_0432

Took the liberty of taking a pleated knee length skirt and just wearing it as a mini dress. The nice thing about this harness is that it gives the dress straps and an empire silhouette which I really like. Just for the sake of harnessing a lumpy tent shape… Unfortunately this Luxirare cage purse below […]

Harness Remix

DSC_0265

I meant to include this 2nd way of styling these harnesses, but it was a photo overload. I think I’m done with posting 9 million photos in one post, unless I really have to. This one includes one of my absolute favorite blazers by Raf Simons. Truly brilliant the way he has the lapel tucked […]

Luxirare Harnessed

DSC_0284_2

After experiencing the reaction for the minivests a while ago and how well they were doing in the shop, I had to introduce something similar but maybe even more reduced in design. Starting off very slow, simple, and casual here.  One of the first requests I received after presenting these minivests were to re-produce them […]

Luxirare Motovest via Alexandra Spencer

Miss Spencer’s photo (above). I just had to share these photos self styled and shot by Alexandra of 4TH&BLEEKER. This might be a strange coincidence but I’ve been meaning to reshoot this vest because it is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve not been able to wear as much…And what do you know… I […]

Luxirare Motorcycle Vest in Action

Picture 6

It’s lovely to see a young, beautiful, free spirit like Alexandra Spencer snapped and featured on the front page of Style.com (by no other than Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil of course!!) in a Luxirare motovest (Click here to see all the snap shots of editors/models in Australia for fashion week)..Notice how she is […]

iPhone Wallet Necklaces

DSC_4087

It has been quite a long time since I first thought of the idea behind this post. Do you remember when Steve Jobs passed? (Yes that was rhetorical, sorry)…. I planned on doing this whole tribute post, designing accessories around all of the beautiful gadgets he’s created. But I can’t rush such things, everything needs […]

World of Whiskey and Leather

DSC_0394_2

Lapel cut with perforated leather. Ever since this post, I’ve been getting requests for that particular style jacket. The thing with this first draft of the quilted biker jacket was that, well it was a rough draft. There were details I wanted to edit and comb over perfectly. And yes because I know that there […]

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 blasé feeling is definitely going to influence the way […]

Wallet Necklaces

DSC_0047

So, how was everyone’s New Years? All I can say is that I’m starting this year off slow and simple. This post and the design is pretty light but that’s exactly how I want to start off. I have some other projects I’m working on that are unrelated to this blog so give me some […]

Before another year ends…

chainjacket

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 […]
