Yasmine Talks Shop: Poolside Collection 2021

A few months ago, I did some polls on Instagram to see if you all wanted another loungewear line for summer, and it was clear that you did. As summer rolled in, I was so happy I started designing this line with our Organic cotton waffle because I found the fabric was perfect for cottage weekends with friends and sweaty days.  The organic cotton waffle has become my favourite post-shower, post-pool, and post-beach fabric. It doesn’t get heavy and sticky when it gets wet and stays breathable on the hottest of days.  One of my favourite pieces from the first run of this line is our bathrobe-cardigan Lost in The Woods. I use it daily at home as it’s the perfect bathrobe for...

Yasmine Talks Shop: Cottage Collection

I had so much fun and felt really inspired designing this collection. It all started with the gorgeous linen viscose, one of the last ones of this quality. If you haven’t bought any of these linens (used to make Across the City in Plaid and Sweet Potato and And She Was in Plaid), do it before it’s too late. The first thing I built for this collection was the colour palette. The mix of blue, rust, blush, and soft olive transported me to dreams of summer vacation. From a European getaway to a cottage in the northeast. The styles and cuts are classic and romantic. They’re easy to wear and can be tossed on for a stroll on the boardwalk,...

Yasmine Talks Shop: May 2021

I don’t know about you but Spring has been rough. It’s probably the COVID fatigue mixed in with the yoyo of April in Montreal. But now that the curfew is after the sun goes down and we can feel the relief of summer I’m feeling energy flowing back. This collection was the anti-depressants I needed to get through the last couple of weeks. I wanted to design things that were 100% undeniably happy. Every time we tried on the samples, Alex and I had big smiles on. We felt so pretty and I hope you feel the same. We have two ultra-feminine instant Lustre hits. The Little Sparrow dress and the Splash of Light and Bedside outfit in the most beautiful...

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...
