With each jacket cut from herringbone tweeds, tartan plaids, and ombre wools and detailed with bright piping, vintage-feel buttons and trace of leather the 30-year-old fashion director-turned-designer creates her idea of the perfect blazer under her line Laveer named after the nautical term meaning to sail against the wind.


“It’s a reliable piece in a woman’s closet,” Ciepluch says of her reasoning behind creating a collection solely dedicated to jackets and blazers in varying lengths and fits. “Like the perfect accessory, they can pull together any outfit.”
