Yasmine Talks Shop: April 2021

For our first Spring collection of 2021 (launching tomorrow morning, April 14, 2021, at 9 AM EST), I wanted to offer pieces that you’ll be able to wear, whether it’s 5 degrees or 25. That means pieces made in really summery breezy fabrics that will let you sweat on the hottest of days while you can layer them well into the late fall. You can pair all of them with boots, sneakers, or sandals for flexibility and versatility. Every garment in this collection is made of beautiful natural fabrics, including more linen and viscose blends and two new materials from the same supplier that brought you our super soft, sustainable French Terry. For summer, we bring you an organic cotton...

Yasmine Talks Shop: March 2021

In the last few months, we've worked on really special one-off collections. It has been so much fun, but when it came to designing the collection that would launch at the same time as our 15th anniversary, I wanted to go back to basics. Since the beginning of our Mini Monthly Collections launched last March, I wanted to find a way to showcase our classics line. Our basics or classics line has always been really important to Lustre's values as it's the best way to build a sustainable wardrobe. Not only are they tried and tested, but they are also often the first pieces that people buy. (Think building blocks of a sustainable wardrobe.) Now basic doesn't mean boring.  A...

Yasmine Talks Shop: February 2021 Edition

One of the items on our Lustre Projects list this year was utilizing some of our “double deadstock” fabric. (Double deadstock: the deadstock fabric we have had sitting in our atelier long enough that it has essentially become deadstock for us on top of its original deadstock designation.) Some of you know how much I love searching for treasures in Montreal fabric warehouses--finding beautiful vintage deadstock fabrics--but after 15 years, we now have a studio full of fabric. Some are small amounts leftover from designs we made 10 years ago, while others are rolls we purchased and sampled with but never went into production. All that to say, one of my goals is to include at least one garment made...

Silky Silk for a Sumptuous Experience

For December’s launch (and the holiday season), we decided to focus on ultra-lux feel-good loungewear made out of washed silk. And now I’m going to gush about it (while still being wonderfully informative). Now. Put up your hand if you didn’t know washed / washable silk was a thing. I’m 32 and had never heard of such a thing. I always assumed silk was dry clean only, probably due to all the care labels stating as much. If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy garments that need to be dry cleaned, or if you do, once “dirty” enough, they all get shoved in a bag and slowly collect dust and wrinkles until you finally make it to the dry...
