Meet the Designer and West Coast Hatter's TRUNK SHOW

The ladies of Lord's are heels over handbags to announce the 2 day trunk show and designer event with Mary Jane Patterson of West Coast Hatters. 

 Saturday Dec 1st and Sunday Dec 2nd @ Lord's!

About MJ

Originally hailing from Brighton, England, I started working in the hat industry in Vancouver, BC, in 2010. Along the way I realised I had a passion for all things hats and  started experimenting with restoration and manufacture.

 

I began designing and making my own hats in 2011. First I learnt how to technically block hats using vintage wooden hat blocks, making bespoke designs for private clients. Soon after I realised that there were hats I wanted to make but no blocks existed to make them so I taught myself how to freeform hats using draping techniques with felt and straw to create more sculptural pieces.  Using these techniques I can also freehand shape traditional felts to create unique crowns and pinches.

 My style comes from a combination of experimentation with materials, finding new and unique ways to shape, form and drape and the use of tradtional techniques. My men's hats are formed on traditional wooden blocks using steam and pressure applied by hand, all seams are hand stitched. Some styles are also shaped freeform to give near infinite variation in the crown and brim. Most hat bodies are made from fur felt although I do work with wool felt, straw, silk, sinamay and other materials.

 

West Coast Hatters provides several services:

 

* Consultation and hat design

* Bespoke millinery

* Wardrobe pieces for the TV and film industry

* Couture fashion pieces

*Restoration and repair

*Millinery classes

Limited Edition Collection- small batch production.

The Small Batch Collection from Cougar.
Waterproof natural hide and suede leather
It's really rare for fashion boots like these to be waterproof, but our design team pulled it off.
We've built each shoe with a waterproof membrane hidden underneath the natural hide and suede leather to keep your feet dry.
Even the seams are sealed with waterproof adhesives and tape.
That means you can wear these in wet slushy snow without getting your feet wet!
Temperature rated
The materials used in the lining  of each shoe is cold-temperature rated down to -24°C/-11°F.
No more freezing toes when you get into work.
Easy to care for
Keeping natural hide and suede leather clean is easier than you'd think.
Just wipe the leather with a damp cloth, gently comb with a small brush or toothbrush, and allow to air dry.
No need to apply waterproof sprays or gels, these boots are waterproof right out of the box.

The newest collection from Vienna's ART POINT as us in the mood we can only explain with song & dance. This fall/winter collection of structured pieces from wide pat pants, printed crop vests and sleek pull-over tops is jaw dropping!
Some of our favourite pieces this season include the shear printed tops. Worn with a sleeve or without this pieces could be a year-round item in your wardrobe. Add a coloured underpinning to bring the shapes to life. Detailed with classic lines and  cut S-XXL it is a fit for most of our bodies.  Tops have inside adjusting tabs to give you more fitted look if that is what suits your look.
The new collection shows a softer side of ART POINT with feminine printed tops and jackets in tone-on-tone black or blue-to-black floral prints.

Richness & Indulgence

***
**
*
'Tis the season for richness and indulgence. Chillier temperatures, a glass of wine by the fireplace, holiday celebrations, and the search for those perfect gifts make us crave jewel tones, lush burgundies, and royal touches. Why not bring the luxury all the way down to your toes, without the calories!
Rich wine red and glowing garnet are the colours of the season, with mesmerizing depth in textures from patent to suede to velvet. Not just for dressy pumps, with chic bows and ladylike ruffles, we're also loving shimmering deep reds in citified ankle boots, lace-up oxfords, dark florals, and waterproof zip-front walking shoes. Stop the show in a pair of knee-high red suede boots with a hint of gold. Don't neglect to sling it over your shoulder in an embellished bag with striking details.
Want something that packs even more punch? A surprising pop of purple or cobalt give your tootsies the royal treatment, in styles to suit every mood from refined to rock-n-roll. Metallic indigo loafers with riveted jewels will take you from office to night out in style. Purple distressed leather with buckle details make casual boots a statement piece. Or a vibrant suede pump with this season's bow detail let your toes do the talking.
It's like jewelry for your feet!

Thank you Edmonton! We had a blast with you this fall at both our POP UP locations!

The Delta South POP UP was filled with friends, shoes, and fun and the best part was our Fashion Show for WINGS! Thank you all those whom came, supported and shared the SHOWER for WINGS. This Shelter holds a special place in our hearts and we plan to come back again in the fall of 2019 with another great event for WINGS. Click here for more information on WINGS and how you can support this amazing Women's Shelter. 

 

Our first downtown POP UP shop opened this fall on 124th ave and the fun continued! We had so much fun seeing friends & clients we had not seen in years! And if we had $1 for each time one of you said "oh wow, look at this amazing clothing you have", we could buy you all flights to come visit us in Vancouver (joking, but not really LOL).

So, YES we will be back in the spring of 2019 with yet another POP UP SHOP! Stay tuned for the details and in the meantime remember if you are looking to ship shoes to Edmonton from our on-line store please use promo code EDMONTON at check out for FREE SHIPPING!

stylishly yours,

Life in Black & White

***
**
*
A life in black and white.
It’s true, color is the distinctive feature of a specific look and style, like navy blue for nautical style or pastel pink for a romantic soul. But also monochrome can be very charming and the Fall-Winter 2018 runways offered interesting graphic elements and classic combinations suitable for various occasions. In other words: when in doubt, wear black and white.
A rigorous and impactful combination, where black and white alternate sharply: black and white becomes eclectic, multifaceted, the symbol of a classic woman who does not compromise (also on color).
Black and white are a symbol of masculine and feminine that coexist in women’s outfits inspired by menswear.

A.S98- Italian leathers with stunning style!

***
**
*
If you have been to Italy or dream of going we can space-travel you there with a few steps in our newest collection of A.S98 boots & purses. Leathers have never been so soft and colours so amazing! Take a stroll in these bad boys and you will understand why A.S98 is a stand out brand at Lord's.
Olip Italia and A.S.98: shoes paired with character.
There is hardly an industry where people are so inextricably paired to their business as in the fashion industry. Piero Oliosi and his sons are the owners of the A.S.98 brand and the soul of the renowned Italian company Olip. Headquartered near Verona in Colà di Lazise, there is also a factory in Bosnia. Olip employs over 1,200 people and the company has been successful since it started in the 1980s. The factory’s output of 6,000 shoesper day also makes it one of the most productive. Short distances and quick reaction times on new design suggestions are some of the outstanding strengths of the Bosnian factory.
It’s not just the numbers that reflect the quality of this brand, rather the special design features and careful selection of materials that set new industry standards. A.S.98’s materials are all imported from Italy because only selected tanneries can produce the distinctive leather that is characteristic of the brand.
It is this deep understanding, coupled with the technical skills of dedicated employees, that produces shoes with real character, because Olip is of the opinion that this is the only way fashion works.
