I thought the best way to introduce a clothing line about street wear, femininity, and superior quality was to begin with a collection of body conscious varsity jackets. Through detailed construction, unique fabrication, and intense embellishments, menswear brands like Y-3 and Opening Ceremony have evolved the varsity jacket from a sporty/casual outerwear piece to a cold weather statement. 

love is love, love women's varsity jackets are designed to have the same cool, casual gone classy attitude, without compromising fit or quality. The core body and sleeves are tailored to have a slimmer fit and accentuate feminine curves, with padding added to the shoulders for a more fashion forward fit.  Each style is a core color, making it easy to tie-in with your wardrobe, with a focus on the texture of the wool and patterned leather. Oversized chest logos are  embellished with glass jewels and studs. Print and jacquard linings are specifically selected to complement the outer aesthetic and are further quilted with medium weight batting, providing warmth and maintaining a trim fit. A waist pocket and chain appliqué main label are also found inside of each of the jackets.

100% wool felt with Chantilly lace overlay on front and back panels. Genuine leather sleeves laser cut to have the texture of alligator skin. Front welt pockets made with the same leather. Collar, hem, and sleeve cuffs are all quilted wool felt. Jet black glass jewels create the triple L monogram on the chest. Lace detail is printed on the lining. Black wool welt pocket inside right front panel and back inside neckline features gunmetal chain logo.

100% molten [that means it's soft and comfy] wool body. Genuine leather sleeves and pockets treated with a reflective metallic finish and snake skin pattern. Collar and body hem are quilted wool,  resembling the rib knit usually used on varsity jackets, but providing a more structured fit. There is an option of finishing the sleeve with a quilted cuff [shown in the first photo] or snap placket [shown in the flat pictures]. Instead of a large logo, this style has a functioning chest pocket and comes with a removable triple heart pin. The lining is 100% silk jacquard. Welt pocket inside right front panel and silver chain inside logo.

feel me [cause of all the texture]

The body of this jacket is actually a charcoal herringbone made of a wool/cashmere blend. The genuine leather sleeves have multiple sized and shaped perforations that form a dynamic floral motif. The double welt waist pockets use this leather as well. The collar and hem are quilted herringbone and the sleeves finish with snap plackets. The triple L chest logo is made up of gold-tone set, ivory glass jewels with gold-tone studs surrounding them. The multi-color jacquard lining echo's, both, the floral pattern on the sleeves and the herringbone texture of the body fabric and peaks through the perforations on the sleeve. There is, of course, an interior waist pocket and the inside main label is done in a gold-tone chain appliqué.

Everything is handcrafted by yours truly, in Brooklyn.
