……………………..SURPRISE!……..One more LINEA LEISURE piece to tempt you…………How much fun is this….Is it a DRESS ?……a JACKET ?…..a COAT ?……….It’s ALL THREE….It just depends on how you want to wear it…….A267869, is the style number of my latest addition to my LINEA LEISURE COLLECTION. The color is…..BERRY/BLACK…….a very juicy red berry color……This is not Pomegranate or Chili Pepper…….Both colors of the dress, the Berry and contrasting Black, are in my COTTON/SPANDEX……so the dress is completely cotton knit…..This has ALL of the features of my cotton/span HOODIE…..except it is LONGER, approx 39 inches, and has a TWO WAY ZIPPER. The important thing to know is this was fit as a DRESS. It was not fit with leggings under it or layering pieces, so if you want to wear it as shown above with a Turtle Neck and  “leggings” you may want to size up one size….CHECK THE CLICK HERE MEASUREMENTS…..The hip and bust measurements will be important if you want to add these layers……If you will not wear it as a jacket, and only want to wear it with tights, and a tank….then your regular size, or the size you bought the L.L. Hoodie in will be fine. The dress has all the details of the hoodie….naturally a hood….body seams for a body skimming shape….. long sleeves with a contrast cuff…..patch pockets…..and very importantly the addition of a TWO WAY ZIP. It will have two SIGNATURE ZIPPER PULLS and every zipper and pull, on all colors, will be GUNMETAL……It will look great with my BLACK LEATHER BLAZER, A228559, or the BLACK PEA JACKET, A259261, worn over it………….Whether you are an uptown girl or a down town girl…..or……maybe you’re an uptown girl with the heart of a downtown girl……………you can make this work for you…………………………………………enjoy…………………………………..much Love……………………………………………..Louis

“THE NEPTUNE BLUE HOODIE DRESS”

……………………………….NEPTUNE is another new Linea color. There are colors that I have done before that are similar, but none are quite like Neptune……. HOODIE and CHIC aren’t words that you often see being used in one sentence, but this is the exception. I think the combination of the BLACK with the colors makes the difference. Layering with black tops and bottoms, from tanks to turtle necks… slim pants, tights to leggings…..gives you a wide range of how you may want to change it up. Wear it with my BLACK SLIM PANTS, A265615 or LINEA BODY black leggings, A260034, and black sneakers for a very casual look………Wear it with black tights…..especially my new TUXEDO STRIPE tights that are coming, or my HERRINGBONE, A260033 or PINSTRIPES for added texture ….and a fabulous shoe boot for a more dressed up look…This is important….For the more adventurous….OPEN TOE SHOE BOOTS, as well as regular shoe boots look great with FANCY TIGHTS …Add some of my new casual jewelry…..a single strand of the FALLING LEAVES necklace or the new LARIAT…all coming in SILVER or GUNMETAL…..For my ladies who like to cinch in their waists…….add a black calf belt……….When the fall winds start and the chills start to descend on us….and be sure they will……add my BLACK WHISPER KNIT SCARF, A257914 wrapped around the neck………When fall and winter sets in….add one of my BLACK SUEDE JACKETS, A259613 or BLACK LEATHER JACKETS, A228557, and the PRUSSIAN BLUE PEA JACKET, A259261 will be perfect over the Neptune Blue dress!……..A new Black “LEATHER” Moto is coming and will be perfection over the dress for a look with an EDGE……If that’s not enough….I have other surprises in store………as you already know…………………………………………….enjoy………………..much Love………………………..Louis

……………..The OLIVINE HOODED DRESS……..Could this be the one for you?….RED HEADS STAND UP!….This color was made for you….but my brunettes and blonds shouldn’t shy away from this brighter saturated olive………..Check out all of the smaller pictures at the right. They show the dress/coat zipped in all kinds of configurations………the advantage of a TWO WAY ZIPPER……. Do not be afraid to compliment the OLIVINE with a wonderful color like my PETROL BLUE WK TANK….or for the less adventurous the new HEATHER GRAY TANK………Black is not your only option, but it’s a fabulous one…..Above the new BLACK SHORT SLEEVE WK ENR SWEATER, A267882………………. enjoy………………………much Love……………………………….Louis

“THE OLIVE TRENCH COAT”

Zebra8

 

……………..IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS…..and this trench has them all………The TRENCH COAT has a long history. The British Army commissioned Burberry, a conservative, but meticulous mens wear company, to create a coat for the fighting men in the “trenches” during WW1…… hence the “TRENCH COAT”. The  button out lining had to double as a bathrobe…the plaid came later….Traveling to the front on the trains and even in the trenches the very proper English men needed bath robes….so this was a multi purpose coat……..My trench coat has many of the details that the original did…..without the button out lining…………Let’s start with the fabric…..63%POLYESTER/33%RAYON/ 4%$ SPANDEX. The fabric is very similar in weave, look and hand to my pinstripe suit….only this is heavier….not heavy, but suitable for a coat. It has a very slight texture, a sort of flat almost un-discernible hammered twill….This is not a raincoat! ……The COLLAR is a classic trench collar with a stand that goes completely around the neck….kissing in the front. To hold the collar together there is a large metal hook and eye that is also classic to a trench coat……The EPAULETTES, which can be seen in the center photos are done as the original coat. They can completely button off. Soldiers used to button their rifle straps to there coats using the epaulettes to hold the strap in place so there hands were free……..This is a double breasted  coat and it has the single trench flap [as the original trench] which buttons to the coat. The SLEEVES are long and they have the traditional STRAP with the belt loops and slide buckle. You can cinch the sleeve in for a little more attitude….or not………..The BELT is extra long so you can tie it with a one sided loop. It does have a buckle which can also be used. Notice that the belt is OLIVE on one side and BLACK on the other, so when it is tied there is a kind of exclamation!……This is IMPORTANT…..please notice the third picture in from the BOTTOM LEFT. It is a picture of the BELT LOOPS ON THE COAT…..I said LOOPS, because there are two rows of loops that can be used….one higher and one lower. The reason for this double set of loops enabled men who were taller or shorter to be able to belt the coat where is was comfortable for them…..so this should be ideal for my taller and shorter women…..no need to take the belt out of the loops to accommodate your waist line…….There are TWO POCKETS WITH BUTTONED FLAPS for security……The back of the coat has the traditional BACK TRENCH FLAP. These flaps were originally put there so the rain would run off and give the men an added layer of protection.. There is also a back vent for easy walking……….The entire coat is lined in BLACK SATIN…..The FRONT of the coat is all FACED IN BLACK….the same material as the coat and the reverse side of the belt……so when the coat is opened you have these WONDERFUL BLACK LAPELS…….The coat is completely DOUBLE STITCHED…..another authentic and wonderful detail……The coat is approx. 38 inches long for the size 6…….The instructions say “machine wash in cold water” If it were mine I would only dry clean it to keep it crisp and professionally pressed….For those of you who are always looking for MATCHING pieces the A259110, WK turtleneck…..the A237412 WK skirt, and the A259702, gaberdine pant all blend beautifully with the OLIVE TRENCH…..and for an added bonus this year I have added the matching OLIVE to the TIGHTS [avail now] and the SEAMLESS LINEA BODY LEGGINGS [coming soon]……As I started our conversation…….IT IS ALL IN THE DETAILS…….It looks like a coat that should cost well over $1000……………It LOOKS like a designer coat, it FEELS like a designer coat, it is MADE like a designer coat……….it IS A DESIGNER COAT………………………………………enjoy…………………………………much Love……………………………..Louis
