Nouvelle Collection Fruitée : Tout Confort & Inspirée de la Nature mai 21, 2017 17:06

 

Le 3 mai dernier, marquait le lancement de notre Nouvelle Collection Printemps Été 2017. L’événement a pris place à la boutique Boutique Petite Rebelle de la rue Saint-Hubert à Montréal. Est-ce que vous y étiez ? Sinon, on vous raconte tout !

 

 

 


Parmi les surprises et rafraîchissements se trouvaient bien sûr tous les nouveaux modèles de la collection, que nous avions bien hâte de dévoiler ! On pouvait y découvrir nos matières naturelles et locales, aux couleurs rafraîchissantes et aux imprimés inspirés de la nature. L’ensemble des matières, finement choisies, créent un merveilleux agencement, qui se démarque joliment. Sans compter la présence de tricots locaux, aussi doux qu’éthiques!

 

 

 

 

Au cours de la soirée, plaisir et respect de la nature étaient au rendez-vous. D’ailleurs, pour l’occasion BKIND, ligne de cosmétique vegan et montréalaise (qu’on ADORE !), s’est joint à nous.

 

 

 

 

On y comptait aussi la présence de Josiane Stratis, Catherine Éthier et Marie-Claude St-Laurent, qui incarnent parfaitement le caractère authentique et féminin de notre ligne. On adore leur style chic et spontané, qui colle tellement avec Meemoza !

 

 

 

 

Avez-vous jeté un coup d’œil à la nouvelle collection ? Quel est votre coup de cœur ? :)

An Ode to Fall's colours! - Inspiration Look octobre 9, 2015 11:35

 

As you may have already noticed, our streets have started dressing up in beautiful colours! The weather, on the other hand, has remained clement :)

Isn't it the perfect moment to take out your colourful tights and beautiful fall accessories? On this occasion we want to share our latest look with you, starring beautiful prints and comforting colours.

 

 

For this new Inspiration Look, we chose our very feminine Kate Blouse, made with organic cotton, and one of the most heartwarming printsHeartwarming, is an adjective which can also be used to describe the warm burgundy shade of this blouse. This colour combination makes the piece one of the must-have items from our new collection. 

 

 

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, it's now or never the time to start wearing your favorite shorts on a lovely pair of tights! For those of you who have fallen for the shimmering Caramel colour of Emilie's tights, take a look at our online shop! The Stacy top and the Harlow skirt are available in this brightly warm shade :)

 

       

 

Finally, let's talk accessories! The look is completed by our cute Modal Headband, soft as silk. This ivory coloured headband provides the softness and warmness of our locally made Modal knit. It goes perfectly with the unique, and locally made earrings, created by the designer Miss Cocotte, who works with metal and leather.

 

      

 

So, what do you think? :) Do you like this look? Stay tuned for more ideas and combinations this season! Sign up to receive our newsletter at the bottom of this page.

 

 


A refined floral look for a sunny back to school ! septembre 4, 2015 17:18

 

Back to school is here! With the nice weather we have been enjoying, it's the perfect timing for a  romantic look :) This week we have prepared a combination that stars the cute Harlow Skirt from our New Fall Collection! With its unique floral print, is the perfect piece to keep wearing florals into Fall! 


Harlow Skirt (Fall 2015) Bag : Deborah Adams Design

 

This full and comfy circular skirt provides a comfortable ease of movement with its local Modal knit, soft as silk! Perfect to seize every moment!


Mix our Harlow Skirt with an elegant top and a leather ankle boot, for a refined effect. The look would not be complete without a structured felt hat, which gives an unexpectedly dressed up touch to this romantic outfit.

Lovers of Le café Sardine/Iwashi will be happy to find Chef Hachiro Fujise’s offerings at the surprising Thazard!
