LECAVALIER studios inc. intends to present a new side of luxury. Established in 2018 by Marie-Ève Lecavalier, the label is as forward thinking as it is tasteful, combining bold design aesthetics, thorough material research and impeccable execution. Beauty is in the garment—from the cuts to the finishings, LECAVALIER creates statement pieces that are desirable and wearable. A collection tells a story but the clothes should always speak for themselves. We are not selling a look or an attitude, but rather clothes that will be loved and cherished for a long time.
Following a few years of fashion design experience in both Montreal and New York, Marie-Ève Lecavalier further developed her craft and completed a Masters’ degree at HEAD in Geneva, Switzerland. For her thesis, she developed a completely novel leather stitching technique and designed a collection that lead her to the city of Hyères, France.
In the spring of 2018, Marie-Ève Lecavalier was awarded the Chloé Prize at the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography, for a look created in honour of the house, as well as Special Mention from the jury, chaired by Haider Ackermann. Her collection, praised for its sophistication in technique, use of materials and elegant wearability, seduced the international press, the likes of Vogue Paris, Elle UK, Wallpaper*, Dazed and Le Temps. She splits her time between Montreal and Paris.
