I've just been in to see the first collection from new label Lee Klabin. And it's very, very cool.
Lee Klabin is a new luxury ready-to-wear brand, it only properly launched in Feb! Specialising in couture quality (but massively wearable) corseted pieces. The collection is mainly dresses (but there are some great little jackets and trousers to) - the beautifully made jersey ones above are my favourite - stocked in Harrods (and selling out FAST), the pics don't do them justice, they're beautiful, think the new Roland Mouret Galaxy... They all have exquisite boning, panels and seams which create a feminine but strong and totally modern silhouette.
The label is so new it hasn't even been picked up on by most but it has been worn by Dita Von Teese in Harpers and Sarah Jessica Parker is a big fan, she was introduced to the label through Patricia Field who requested a corset for her to wear in the first SATC film and now owns her own.
One more thing, I love the description of the Lee Klabin woman in the lookbook... READ...
'Being 'accidentally' sexy she doesn't realise the kind of effect she has one others'... Nice.
