The Canadian coat guru has put a new spin on her old tricks. Linda Lundstrom showed her first collection this Tuesday at LG Fashion Week and brought the crowd to their feet. Mixing modern silhouettes (think billowing sleeves, high collars, and slouchy trousers) with her staple fur trim and high-quality fabrics, Lundstrom is appealing to a much wider audience of fashionistas.
The Leparka designer has gone through a bit of a redesign renaissance and we anticipate that practically everyone could find an envy-worthy coat within the collection. We suspect nostalgic 20-somethings will warm up to the black and white buffalo-check lumber jacket, while 40-something mommies will swoon over the many cocoon-styled jackets to choose from. If you can’t wait for the fall line to become available, check out her spring stuff (available in select retailers now) or pick up a copy of the April issue of Canadian Family magazine to see Lundstrom’s take on the paper bag princess frock [page 20].
The Canadian designer is sold at a bevy of shops around North America. And if local manufacturing is your bag, you’ll be pleased to know the Lundstrom line is designed, manufactured and produced in Toronto.
