Quartz Co. partners with award-winning designer Marie-Ève Lecavalier
Canadian outerwear company Quartz Co. has teamed up with 2022 CAFA’s Womenswear designer of the year, Marie-Ève Lecavalier, on a limited-edition capsule collection of women’s performance outerwear.
The seven-piece collection offers a series of fashion-forward outerwear pieces that are at once timeless and ultra-modern. The line draws design cues from the luxe origins of après-ski and classic couture silhouettes. As with all of Quartz Co.’s winter coats, the collection is made in Canada in the label’s privately-owned factories.
Pieces include a voluminous down-filled wrap coat, both cropped and maxi-length down puffers, a utility- inspired jacket and vest, a quilted lightweight jacket, and a pair of zippered cargo-inspired snow pants. Items are available in black, royal blue, and oatmeal. The entire collection is available for purchase online at quartz-co.com and at Quartz Co.’s boutiques in Montreal.
The collection launches with a retrofuturistic campaign shot by photographer Étienne Saint- Denis and styled by Lu Philippe Guilmette, and a lookbook shot by Samuel Pasquier and styled by Marianne Dubreuil.
“These are garments that are practical, extremely warm and lightweight, in silhouettes and shapes that we don’t usually find in the world of women’s performance outerwear,” said Lecavalier.
“Designing as a woman in the outerwear industry, I wanted to zone in on the idea of cut and fit, which I find is really lacking in women’s outerwear. These pieces are the ones I wish I could find on the market but have never been able to.”
The collaboration arrives as part of Quartz Co.’s 25th anniversary roll-out.
