Lurker By Matix For The Holidays
clothes Tuesday, November 16, 2010
After Remembrance Day passes, there's no such thing as planning your holiday party outfits too early. But if you're looking at the party clothes in your closet with a mixture of frustration and ennui, don't despair. Just in time for winter festivities, California-based clothinglabel Matix--usually known for its casual streetwear and skateboarder's apparel--is launching a capsule collection under the name Lurker. At $49-129, the five pieces that make up Lurker are fashion-forward, good quality, and affordable, leaving you plenty of money in the bank to buy Christmas presents for your loved ones.
During a media preview at De La Cruz PR several weeks ago, I had the privilege of seeing Lurker up-close and personal. My top two picks? The 'Lone Wolf' faux fur jacket ($129), which has already been featured in FASHION magazine, makes a cool cover-up alternative to the cashmere cardigan or the pashmina of years gone by. Use it to dress up a tee and jeans along with high-heeled booties, sparkly statement baubles, and red lipstick for a day-to-night look. And then there's the 'That's Amore' strapless sweetheart neckline dress ($89); with its zipper-trimmed peplum, flattering silhouette, built-in boning in the bodice, and slightly shiny fabrication, it'll be the LBD you keep reaching for time and again.
In Vancouver, Matix is sold at Below the Belt, Boardroom, and Showcase.
