Look #5: Atelier b X Very Joëlle

header-atelier-b-very-joelle-paquette-2

Wednesday, September 2. My phone’s buzzing. Gmail tells me I have a new message. I’m expecting yet another press release… wrong! It’s Anne-Marie Laflamme and Catherine Métivier, the two creative minds behind Atelier b boutique, who want to collaborate with me.

My reply: Thanks for thinking of me!

In my my head: YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!

The plan? Pick 6 pieces from the new collection of their eponymous line and style them the way I want, carte blanche/no rules kinda deal. And you know how I love challenges.

Today. I’m super excited to show you the result of our creative worlds colliding (and Naomie’s inevitably, because you know, we’re inseparable ;).

Voilà! I hope you enjoy it :)

“When we were little, we had very simple raincoats cut out of shiny vinyl. Those and rain boots – they both made us love the rain! We wanted to pay them tribute, but in a refined version. Waxed cotton canvas, tortoise buttons hidden under a placket with no visible stitching, greige finishing on the inside… and most importantly, the big pockets where you can tuck away some pebbles.” –Anne-Marie & Catherine

“At first, we imagined this piece by asking ourselves:  in the collective imagination, what would be a dress at its purest form? If a kid were to draw a dress using just a few lines, what would it look like? Over time, this piece has become a classic amongst our collections. Every season, we reinterpret it in a million ways! With linen during summer, with checkered wool or tweed for winter… This one is made with organic cotton twill, which is long lasting and easy-care. The A line is flattering on every body type. The pockets are indispensable. You can wear it either for a wedding in August or at work on a Tuesday in November.” –Anne-Marie & Catherine

“ The starting point of this skirt was the fabric, with which we fell in love. Made in a traditional mill located in Italy, its texture is firm yet fluid – it creates beautiful flares! The goal was to come up with a simple design that would let the textile be the main focus. It’s also a cozy winter skirt: it’s warm, comfy and cute. And when you’re sitting down, you can see the other side of the fabric which is a different color… Everything is in the details! ” –Anne-Marie & Catherine
