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

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 […]

Paper Crocodile

For a while I had all these gorgeous crocodile skins at my disposal. As I kept getting new ideas for other materials, these precious hides just sat in my studio, what can I say? I was empty on ideas for how to proceed…in fact I wondered, why did I even buy these? Well, fast forward […]

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 […]

Seamless Micro Purse

DSC_0153

Went on a little vacation, completely emptied out my bedroom (threw out everything except for the extreme essentials) and because of the heat wave this past week I lost 10 lbs by default-I’m feeling very light. It’s been so hot that the thought of eating anything grosses me out, which is why I couldn’t even […]

One piece

I had to see my friend about a month ago and suddenly there it was, a challenge. When you lose your dressing ‘game’, you really lose it…This design was not going to be the kind where I ‘explore my creativity’ but rather..it was going to be a precise solution to my summer dressing issues…. again, […]

Changeability

DSC_3230

Things I’m thinking about: Changeability and lighter designs for spring. Changebility to me just means designing something so that the wearer can customize it to their liking.. …Some new mini mink tails I’ve designed for this season..Loved this fine grey mink, I was originally going to use it for one jacket but decided to create […]

Luxirare Minivest

DSC_1328

One thing that left a big mark on me as a kid was watching the back of my dad. Every morning he’d slip his little leather worn out wallet into his back pocket. My dad’s a very smug person, highly intellectual and bookish but if I had to think of one word to describe his […]

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 …
