………………….I have already posted these pictures a while ago, but since it hasn’t gotten any air time….yet….and it is already posted on the Linea QVC site. I thought I should re-post the pictures in case you haven’t seen them. I wouldn’t want you to rely on the QVC pictures which don’t do this top any justice. It has already received four reviews….all FIVE STAR. The print is truly European quality and I’m sure you will agree with the other women in their praise….The style # is A262028……………………………………..

“THE STRIPED TURTLENECK”

hoodie1

………..The fourth new item in my LINEA LEISURE group is the STRIPED TURTLE NECK, A267867…………. This is a brand new cotton knit for my Linea Ladies. It is 95% cotton and 5% Spandex. It is lighter in weight than the jacket, vest and pant. It is also a yarn dyed fabric, which means the yarn is dyed in each color and them it is knitted as opposed to knitting the fabric and then dying the fabric [fabric dye]. Doing it yarn dyed is a more costly operation. The colors of the dyed yarn usually are more saturated and more intense.. The top is approx. 27 inches for the xxs. There is a partial back zipper to make it easier to get on and off. It has long sleeves and the logo is discretely emb. on the bottom of the sleeve………….Also, I have been pushing to get more of the Linea Leisure labels printed as you can see in the photos above. The colors of the striped turtle neck are………….Pomegranate/Black………Nile Green/Black….and……Tobacco/Black…..Three fun colors to add and to mix with many things you own, and naturally to be mixed with the new L.L. pieces……….Fall is just around the corner…………………………………….enjoy………………..much Love………………………Louis

“THE NILE GREEN/BLACK STRIPED TN”

…………………………..The NILE GREEN TN as you see in the photos is a terrific compliment to the NILE GREEN HOODIE, but can easily mix with all of the solid black Linea Leisure pieces including the sleeper of the group…the long L.L. skirt, A262069, which will come in handy this fall when the chill sets in……..Gunmetal or Silver are the jewelry colors I would choose to accessorize with……………..Easy care, wash and wear…..a stripe for everyone…………….enjoy……………much Love…………………Louis

 

“THE TOBACCO/BLACK STRIPED TN”

…………………………………..The TOBACCO/BLACK stripe TN not only works as a compliment to the Linea Leisure group, but as a separate piece with things you own , and new things coming. The TOPAZ ANIMAL JACQUARD JACKET above, A230025 is returning this fall in this new color. Together with the TUXEDO STRIPE PANT and the new color jacket….the stripe adds so much more pizzaz than any solid color could offer……….CHOCOLATE ACCESSORIES are the perfect mix for this unexpected combination………………………………………………enjoy……………………………….much Love………………………………Louis

“THE POMEGRANATE/BLACK STRIPE TN”

………………….The POMEGRANATE/BLACK STRIPE TN……the Pomegranate Tuxedo Pant and a Black Cardigan…..the Classic, A233940 [on clearance]….the ENR with the Gunmetal Signature buttons, A259706, or the new Swing, A267864, will all set off these two pieces nicely. If you want a more structured type top….any Black jacket in almost any style will work perfectly………………………….enjoy………………………..much Love……………………….Louis

“THE LINEA LEISURE BOOT CUT PANT”

bootcut4

 

…………………………………The NEW LINEA LEISURE PANT is A268243. The style of this pant is a pull-on, and the top band construction is similar to my new slim pant. There are two very important features of this pant that make it “fashion forward”……..The first feature is the boot cut leg. The boot cut has recently taken a back seat to the slim pant and leggings, but no longer…. You will be seeing many many BOOT CUT pants this coming fall, as well as WIDER leg pants. It’s not that the slim leg or the legging is passe….they are still very important pant silhouettes, and play a major part in putting a specific look together, but the BOOT leg and WIDE leg will be taking an important place as well…….They are the BIG NEWS…..VARIETY is what’s happening!………….The RACING STRIPE or TUXEDO stripe on pants, the second feature, showed up on many runways, and is a detail that is being used for both casual pants and dressier pants……and accessories too………….Deciding on the proper length of these pants was a major discussion………For me…there is NOTHING worse than a boot cut or wide leg pant that is TOO SHORT…..It looks like you are waiting for the flood to arrive. A slim pant that is on the short side is much less offensive than a short boot cut pant…You will see Fall slim pants hit the leg from just below the ankle to inches above….they are all correct…My boot cut pant will have a 32 inch inseam…….Sorry there will not be a petite length [not my decision] or tall, so I went with a length that should work for most women, even if they have to be shortened.. I felt that this style pant can always be shortened, but there is no way to lengthen it. Where should this pant hit on the foot????? I know many of you thought Lisa Robertson wore her boot cut pants too long, and her entire foot was covered. The reason for that was the opening at the bottom of the pant was very wide. I would rather see a pant at the length she wore them than too short. The shortest it has been shown on the runways is BREAKING ON THE FOOT…..the longest has the pant dragging on the floor. I do thing the pant should either graze the top of the foot or break on the foot…..NO SHORTER……You will be seeing a variety of leg openings……that is the measurement at the bottom. They will range from extreme to moderate. I would consider my pant to be moderate. It is still a slim leg with a modest spread at the bottom, which I think is the best look for this kind of casual pant. These are fabulous pants to wear with the new HOODIE as a track set, or on their own as accents to things you own or other things that are coming……Just some of the things I see wearing these pants  with are:  the HOODED PONTE BLAZER, A237551 [check out the video with Brenda],  the Ponte TOP with Pockets, A237398….the COTTON/SPAN TUNIC, A262037….the BLACK LEATHER BLAZER, A228559….the LINEA LEISURE BUTTON FRONT JACKET, A262035……the BLACK OVER SIZER WK SWEATER, A257356, and  A265576 the IVORY/BLACK SAILOR PULL OVER with any of the color pants…..and there are lots more you can mix with these pants….all you have to do is try….The pant will be avail in three colors all with BLACK tuxedo stripes………POMEGRANATE……..TOBACCO……..or…… SLATE BLUE………..For the NILE GREEN HOODIE and the AMETHYST HOODIE I recommend my solid BLACK Linea Leisure pant that has been reordered…. or the L.L. Black Boot Skirt, A262069…..This Boot Cut pant is very slenderizing, and the column of color with the Hoodie and pant together should add length to your silhouette……besides they are just so comfy to wear in your leisure time……actually any time………………………………………enjoy……………….much Love……………………………….Louis

“THE LINEA LEISURE VEST”

hoodie

…………………………….The LINEA LEISURE VEST, A267870, is in the same COTTON/SPAN as all of the other pieces. The VEST has all of the Linea Leisure trademarks……starting with the TWO WAY ZIPPER and the SIGNATURE ZIPPER PULL. All of the zippers and pulls are GUNMETAL…same as the Hoodie……..The vest has the PATCH POCKETS with the inserted band for easy entry, and the fabulous SHAPING SEAMS so it isn’t just a box, but a beautiful flattering shaped garment……The vest is perfect for layering or wearing on it’s own…..The colors are the ….POMEGRANATE….NILE GREEN….and BLACK which works with everything.. The wonderful thing about the two way zip, as you can see in the photos above, is you can style the vest to suit you, and to wear it a number of different way, and ways that are most comfortable……..Since the vest is already posted on the QVC Linea site you can study the “click here measurements” and get the one best suited for you. I will say if you are in between sizes or plan to layer turtlenecks and such under the vest I think you may want to go up one size. That all depends on what you want to use it for…As it is it fits nicely to the body as you can see in the Hoodie pictures so you don’t really have to size up, but everyone has their own issues and likes and dislikes about the way garments should fit them. I think your own instincts are the best judge!………………………….enjoy…………………….much Love…………………………….Louis

“THE LINEA LEISURE HOODIE”

hoodie2

 

……………………………The Linea Liesure HOODIE……A267865…..takes the classic hoodie and gives it “STREET SMARTS”……this is not grandma’s hoodie…..it’s not like the thousands of hoodies you can get in the stores right now…it definitely has the “COOL FACTOR”… We all know the classic Hoodie which is as ICONIC as jeans, and there are lots to choose from in the market place…..The classic Hoodie has its’ place, but this is something special. This is a hoodie your daughters will want to steal from you. The classic Hoodie was taken from men’s wear  and has been translated in a plethora of ways for both men and women……..This new Hoodie….is the NEW GAME IN TOWN. With the addition of the FAUX LEATHER SLEEVES it brings “DOWNTOWN”…”UPTOWN”. This takes the classic hoodie and gives it some POW! The jacket is made in my 92% cotton 8% spandex knit. It has the same patch pockets and bands as the classic version…..It has the same hood, this time with a faux leather cord. The ZIPPER front has my SIGNATURE PULL…..The zipper and pull will always be GUNMETAL on all colors…………The colors are….. NILE GREEN…..AMETHYST……SLATE BLUE……….POMEGRANATE……..&………TOPAZ….all with BLACK so it makes it very easy to coordinate, but I’ve helped with that as you will see………If you love to wear Hoodies…..and there are so many different reasons why you do……then you should try this new version…..I guarantee the younger generation will look at you through new admiring eyes…………..It’s cool to look COOL…….at any age!………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….enjoy……………………much Love……………………….

” THE POMEGRANATE HOODIE”

bootcut

 

…………………..The POMEGRANATE HOODIE…….The “LOOK”……The HOODIE…..the BLACK WK TURTLE NECK………THE POMEGRANATE LINEA LEISURE VEST……..the POMEGRANATE BOOT CUT PANT with racing stripe [ boot cut and side stripe both very hot this season], and the new GUNMETAL MULTI CROSS NECKLACE, coming soon is a fabulous pulled together look………………The jacket was fit with one layer, but if you think you might wear the Hoodie as above or with other layering pieces you may own, you might want to consider sizing the jacket up one size. Layering this way is a great way to wear your hoodies later into the season…. When it really gets cold….just wear a coat over all of them………..LEISURE “outfits”, jackets and pants to match, were all over the runways both here and Europe……….for men and women…………………………………………………………………………………………………….enjoy……………..much Love………………Louis

“THE TOPAZ HOODIE”

bootcut3

………………………..The TOPAZ HOODIE…..can go to work…or play………..The Faux Leather sleeves elevates the hoodie to the DESIGNER LEVEL, and gives the jacket a more SOPHISTICATED and CHIC attitude than your average hoodie. Pair it with the BLACK WK DRESS above….or pick your favorite WK sweater in BLACK with your BLACK WK SKIRTS. both LONG and SHORT……a pair of BLACK TIGHTS….patterned or plain, [my new TUXEDO STRIPE TIGHTS will look outrageous with this]. A Black PUMP, SHOE BOOT or BOOT will finish it off….MY BLACK WK SCARF around the neck will give you just the right dramatic effect…and keep you warm too….To change it up and wear it for more casual outings…..the new ALABASTER SS Jewel neck [coming in Aug] with the TOPAZ BOOT CUT PANT. a pair of “HIP” black sneakers and you’re ready to roll……………………………enjoy…………………………..much Love……………………………Louis
