Nothing is better than a well-made classic that has been perfected with a timeless twist. Which is exactly what Kate Ciepluch has done with her debut label, LAVEER. As a former fashion director at shopbop, you better believe that she has seen every line under the sun and if she wasn’t seeing the perfectly updated yet classic blazer, I am lead to believe it must not exist. Until now.
I own over a dozen blazers. The Husband thinks I have an issue, but I know I don’t. As I mentioned in Your Coat is Your Car, in this town, your outer layer is often the only bit of personal style people see for six months of the year.
Aside from the interesting color and texture combinations, I am especially taken with the design detail on the left sleeve of these blazers. Just enough of an accent to say “I am wearing something special” without distracting from the woman in the blazer – the key to any modern classic.
LAVEER is already selling quickly at Shopbop and at Barneys New York. Not too shabby for a debut line. Personally, I can’t wait to see what “classic” she updates next!
