The Super Ponte Jacket

I just received a reply from my fit tech, and I was told the jacket has a roomy fit, which is what Jac said. If you want a closer to the body fit and you aren’t busty with very broad shoulders then you can go down a size, if not stay with your size knowing it will be roomy…that’s the best advice I can give.

“THE WHISPER KNIT SCARF”

gift box

…………………………………………….The WHISPER KNIT SCARF, A257914, will be perfect for HOLIDAY GIFT GIVING!…..”We” had the idea….wouldn’t it be  terrific to offer a WK scarf with a LINEA GIFT BOX for Holiday presents…so I designed the box with the LINEA LOGO……and with your purchase of ONE SCARF….you will receive……a beautiful quality BOX….a SHEET of WHITE TISSUE…..and a SILVER ELASTIC CORD. The size of the scarf is approx. the same size as the POSH KNIT SCARF [which is posted on the Linea QVC site], so they are quite generous, and you will be able to wrap and tie them in multiple ways…….The colors are…..BLACK……..NUTMEG……….HUNTER GREEN…….BRICK RED…….four colors……If they do  well …..hopefully I will be able to bring them to you next year in more colors to match your WHISPER KNITS!….I decided to post this SNEAK PEEK, even thought they are not avail yet, so you can be informed of the two style “scarves” that will be offered to you in the WK…….The shawl, which was actually supposed to be offered next month, has already been posted on the Linea site….so I thought I should give you the complete picture….even if I am “jumping the gun”. They, the scarf and shawl, are in different colors except for the BLACK, and really serve different purposes….There is definitely ro0m in a woman’s wardrobe for both….The shawl just needs a little more attitude to carry it off, but I believe anyone can wear it.!!………………..I have no idea when these scarves will be offered, but the Holidays are a long way off….and scarf wearing hopefully is a long way off too!…………………………enjoy…………………….much Love…………………………Louis

FYI

Morning everyone……….I wanted you to know that the following items will not get any “selling time” on my up coming shows….The WK Shirt Collared Sweater, The WK Zip front Cardigan, The WK Pant and the WK long skirt….Notice I said “selling time”, because I will be featuring each item on my shows…..for instance…..the Zip front cardigan will be shown when I am selling the reorder Ponte pant on the 6pm show and the ivory shirt collar sweater will be worn with the Taupe Super Ponte jacket and pant. On PM Style I will be showing the WK Hunter Green Pant with the H.G. side button WK tunic….and I will have the long skirt with some looks………so even though there won’t be any selling time….the items will get “air time”. I wanted you to know this so you didn’t think you missed the “sell”…………….”See” you soon!…………………….much Love, Louis

“THE IVORY FUNNEL NECK WK SWEATER”

funnel sweater

……………………..THE IVORY FUNNEL NECK SWEATER, A259109, is a sweater for……….ALL SEASONS……………..This is an IVORY sweater that is just as appropriate to wear in the spring, and fall with the NAVY WHISPER KNIT PANT, A257387/A257385, as it is for winter, and the HOLIDAYS and Christmas festivities. For all my WINTER WHITE LOVERS…..can you possibly be more GLAMOROUS than this IVORY sweater worn with my IVORY CREPE PANT, A253576, or my IVORY PONTE KNIT SKIRT, A231138?!……The FUNNEL COLLAR drapes around the NECK and SHOULDERS like WHIPPED CREAM!!!…..There is nothing more flattering  to the face than this type of draped collar. It doesn’t matter if you have a long or SHORT NECK….you can drape the collar in a way that is most flattering to you. All of the pertinent measurements are already listed on the QVC LINEA site. This sweater is coming to you a month early….it was supposed to be part of my Sept. show, but since the WK sweaters that are on line now, and that were to be for Aug., are doing so well OLO…..the decision was made to bring this style in for the show…..hence the late Sneak Peek. Personally, I think this style is a little generous fit wise……..especially in the hip area….though it doesn’t look so on the QVC model…..so check the hip measurement. The sweater has a RAGLAN SLEEVE, so there probably won’t be a shoulder measurement. If the bust and hip measurements seem large to you…go down one size…ONLY!……I have accessorized the outfit with my SILVER/CRYSTAL/IVORY PEARL PIN which will also be avail in the GOLD/CRYSTAL/IVORY PEARL and the GUNMETAL/HEMATITE/GREY PEARL….The NEW drop earring is shown in the GOLD/CRYSTAL/CLEAR DROP combination, and it will be avail in other combinations too. These will all be here for Holiday shopping…………..I don’t know how the weather is where you live???, but here in New England….FALL IS DEFINITELY IN THE AIR!…………………………………………………………………………………………………enjoy………………………….much Love……………………………….Louis

“THE BLACK FUNNEL NECK WK SWEATER”

shetland sweater

This is a…..WOW LOOK…. and definitely brings the idea of the LBD to a HIGHER level!! Paired with the matching WK SKIRT and you can go anywhere….from the office to dinner to a cocktail party….to any special occasion…or no special occasion. I chose to accessorize this outfit with a narrow shiny black belt, and a combination of my CLEAR & JET NECKLACES, J291535. On the ear, my JET DROP EARRING, J291538. This is the PERFECT necklace to wear with this sweater…WHY?….because the neckline of this sweater is wide, and these light weight necklaces do not drag the neckline IN distorting the drape of the collar. Anything heavier will pull the neckline closer to the neck and interfere with the natural drape of the collar……If you already own my HOUNDS TOOTH CHECK or HERRINGBONE FLIPPY SKIRTS…..this sweater will give you a new and fun way to wear them……For a more casual and weekend look….this sweater….and JEANS!…I noticed The SHAWLS, A259111, were also posted on the LINEA site. These too were for Sept…so you are really getting a jump on what’s planned for Fall. I did this EXACT GENEROUSLY SIZED Shawl for Anne Klein, and it’s a FABULOUS accessory to own. “FLUNG” over one shoulder or “BEAUTIFULLY DRAPED ” around the body…..it is not only practical, but an ENTRANCE MAKER!!! Worn over a sweater and jeans, a vest,  a suit, the WK DRESS coming next month, or a long evening dress….this a a special shawl to own. These items don’t come around often, and when they are avail……take the opportunity to collect them, or you may never have another chance…..They are WANTS…not needs…..Don’t have regrets a month or two or six from now, and say why didn’t I get that when I could…..They are priced well and would make INCREDIBLE GIFTS!!!!…..This is the PERFECT OUTFIT to wear with one of my NEW PATTERN TIGHTS that are coming next month……The ALL OVER LACE for evening…..The PEEK-A-BOO LACE running up the back of the leg for when you want to SHOCK and SURPRISE…..and the HERRINGBONE or PINSTRIPE for when you want to look very pulled together and CHIC…..A CROSSED LEG in a pattern hose worn with a minimal elegant suede pump….preferably with a pointed toe….will definitely garner admiring glances!………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

“THE NEW SUPER PONTE JACKET FIT”

Sherry and many of you are wondering about the fit of this new elongated Super Ponte jacket. Jac tried on the size 6 and reports back that it is a generous 6. It is not an 8, but is a generous 6. If you wear B&M size 6 and find they are smaller that a QVC 6 you may want to size down. Jac does wear a 6. She is a 34A and found the jacket large in the bust, they usually are. She has VERY broad shoulders. She thinks either the 4 or 6 would work for her. If you like your jackets with more room go with your size. if you like them close to the body you can size down one size….Remember the 6 is roomy, but it’s a 6….not an 8….not a 4.

UPDATE

It has been brought to my attention that was a mistake on the “important dates” list.

this is the correct list for MONDAY

August 18th, 6:00 PM and PM Style [MONDAY}

August 19th, 6:00am [TUESDAY}

FYI

I can not find the question asking if the pierced earrings have stainless steel posts….the answer is YES, they are all stainless steel according to my manufacturer.

“THE SUPER PONTE JACKET & LEGGING”

tan topper

…………………….First…let me be clear…SUPER PONTE is not a registered name and will not appear on any label….It is a name I have given to this particular new ponte fabric. If you go to the QVC Linea site and look for “Super Ponte”….it won’t be there….

……….Why SUPER PONTE?……….Five or so years ago I did a group of ponte clothes, and one of the pieces was dubbed the “NINOTCHKA JACKET”. The fabric was a very special ponte consisting of 67% RAYON/29%NYLON/4%spandex…….no polyester!! This was a heavier ponte than I had used previously, and a much more expensive fabric than I had used. Many many women fell in love with this very special fabric, but the fabric mill refused to make it again claiming that there were too many damages  in the knitting of the fabric….they had to throw a lot of fabric away, and they lost money………This season I have found another ponte from a different mill that specializes in all types of  ponte  knits. The fabric content is 75%RAYON/21%NYLON/4%SPANDEX!!!!! SUPER INDEED……Not only does it have a higher percentage of rayon, but it is even heavier than the original. That said, the weight may not be suitable for very warm climates where you may have a very short wearing season, so you should take that into consideration. This is a very stretchy fabric even though it’s a substantial fabric…… it has TWO WAY STRETCH!. The hand of the fabric…or touch of the fabric…is SUPER smooth…. I would have to say this is one of the more “EDGIER” fabrics I have used. It is very very MODERN and very “DESIGNER”……………I realize some of you are not going to like or understand this fabric. Some will think it’s too heavy, but if you try it on….you may change your mind…For those of you who understand this type of fabric….you will be more than happy that I was able to bring it to you….I hope you love the fabric as much as I do…..It is new….it is different….it is definitely OUT OF THE BOX!

The ELONGATED JACKET, A257333, can be an outerwear coat for many. It is approx.34 inches long for the XS…..It is totally UNLINED for total comfort, and to benefit the two way stretch. We didn’t want to add any unnecessary weight, and a lining really is totally unnecessary. I have seen many European designers, using similar fabrics and constructing the garments the exact same way. There are SNAP OUT SHOULDER PADS to give the jacket/coat a more defined shoulder line. Of course if you have broad straight shoulders then you can take them out. There are body seams from shoulder to hem, front and back, to give a stream line fit. The two front flaps have working pockets under them. There are three dyed to match buttons on the front only. The sleeve is left unadorned to make it easier to shorten if that is necessary. For my petite ladies this will probably be the perfect coat/jacket length for you, but if it needs shortening, again it is an easy alteration…………………The colors are…………TAUPE…………..BLACK…..You may remember seeing Jac wearing the black over the taupe CHEETAH KNIT top and skirt with the BLACK ANIMAL INSTINCTS tights during the last show……..The TAUPE is a very MENSWEAR color and is often seen in riding britches………………………..The LEGGING/PANT, A257338, is very special due to the fabric. There isn’t any waist band and the exposed elastic band is sewn on the inside of the PULL-ON PANT……There are no zippers and since there is no seam for a waist band …..it is VERY SMOOTH. It has a CONTOUR WAIST LINE, and is lower in the front than the back……..I call this garment a LEGGING/PANT because it has the fit of a legging, but due to the weight….it feels more like a pant. Most leggings are in much lighter fabrics and some are less flattering than this…..With these pants…..you won’t need Spanx! Also….if you wish to tuck something in or wear a body suit with these pants….you will have a much cleaner line than with an ordinary legging. The inseam is approx 28 inches…………These are machine washable in cold water, so they are great for travel. They can be SUPER CASUAL or SUPER DRESSY. Above, I have the colors mixed or matched, and with the addition of the Cheetah skirt and the Black sleeveless mock WK you can begin to see the possibilities of how these pieces can work into you existing wardrobes…..Again, these are very special ….For those of you who fall in love with them you will want them in every conceivable color!……………………………enjoy…………………much Love………………………..Louis
