About the Designer:
Lamarque is a Montreal based brand (ya Canada!!) headed up by both Ifigenia Papadimitriou and Steven Bonamassa.
Lamarque’s focus is on creating “emblematic edginess” through the unique design of their signature leather jackets. They aim to serve a specific clientele as described on their website as being “woman or man; one who favors style over trends, independence over interdependence, urban life over suburbia, individualism over group movements, work over leisure, creativity over production and passion over duty.”
The show started with Marina and the Diamonds Primadonna Girl- which set the tone for the fun upbeat show that preceded. The entire show was modest, boisterous, and engaging.
The major trends that I pulled from the Lamarque show were:
Statement Leather Jacket
Nothing screams FALL quite like a pumpkin spice latte. But if I had to come up with a runner up it would totally be a chunky knit sweater paired with an leather biker jacket. Lamarque made it official that this season’s number one go to look will be this iconic duo.
The goal here is to become as physically close as possible to resembling a piece of aluminum foil. The runway featured metallic skirts paired with metallic jackets all in one ensemble.
The mini skirt
Its back and better than ever. The iconic mini skirt is the perfect piece to pair with a chunky sweater and platform boots. If you really want to stay on trend than opt for a leather or metallic mini!
Off the shoulder dress shirt
The off the shoulder top trend really blew up about two summers ago and this is the latest spin off of that trend. A button up shirt opened wide and resting just off the shoulders
Take it to the streets:
Lamarque’s show was primarily street style, ready to wear garments so the process of transforming any of the looks from runway to your closet is essentially non-existent.
Casual wear with an edgy twist, some examples to incorporate into your own wardrobe could be:
Basic pair of jeans paired with a sweater and an edgy leather jacket.
A white jean skirt, platform oxfords, and a metallic jacket.
Brown dress pants, metallic shoes, and a leather jacket.

Keep it classic, on trend, with a personal twist and you’ll be doing Lamarque proud.
