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.

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...

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...
