Authentic Everyday, Volume 2, brings you together with five women who have something unique in common – they love rescuing animals and wearing Ivey Abitz clothing.

In this magazine, you’ll enjoy fine photography from Ivey Abitz as well as several other photographers. You’ll see Ivey Abitz clothing on unique women in unique settings, all of them authentic to the core.

You’ll meet dogs galore, and the Ivey Abitz cat, Camilla. You’ll see some of the faces behind the fabric and design names in the Ivey Abitz bespoke clothing collection.

You’ll meet extraordinary women. From Emmy Winning actress and radio show host Carolyn Hennesy in California, to Forbes Top Financial Advisor Nora in Texas with her horses and rescue dogs, to Lorraine in New England living her dream in an historic home with her rescued cavaliers.

This photograph features the New York State I Voted sticker from last week’s election day, honouring 100 years of women’s right to vote in the United States. Voting day ensemble includes garments from the new Fall/Winter 2017-18 Collection – the Pineyrie Jacket in Tilled Field/Pewter Knit with the Limited Edition Blanchefleur Frock in River Houndstooth Rustic Cotton. The Attic Scarf from years back (from Collection One – 2010) is worn around the neck.

A Great Ivey Abitz Starter Set

These garments were ordered to be worn just as you see them here. The Cozette Skirt was also chosen to be worn with other garments like the Hambledon Duster Coat, Truitt Jacket, Holkham Hall Vest, and Amorette Shirt Jacket to name a few. This is a great example of a “starter set” in Ivey Abitz where you can easily expand your wardrobe with just one ensemble. Mixing and matching possibilities are plentiful.

Holkham Hall Necktie in Black and White Plaid Cotton Voile
Cavendish Cardigan in Black Checked Netting
Cozette Skirt in Signature Black Ribbed Weave

Go-to frock of the season

This just shipped out…

Clothing by Ivey Abitz.
This just shipped to an Ivey Abitz client.

The Addy in plaid, as well as our other frocks, have been the go-to frock of the season. Here’s another ensemble that was just made for a client, combining our Foggy Cotton Velvet Corduroy with our Foggy/Black Soft Plaid Cotton. A Baedeker Scarf in our Signature Black Ribbed Weave is as comfortable and versatile as it is lovely draped around the neck. The bias cut pleating in our Mathilda designs feature the variegated cording in the cotton velvet, making a striking addition to the ensemble.

Look of Loyalty

Loyal dog with well dressed woman.
Cynthia and Evie wearing the Look of Loyalty

I snapped this on a Sunday walk thru Central Park. Cynthia (left) is wearing the Blanchefleur Duster Coat over the Fennefleur Frock with boots from the Vintage Shoe Company. Evie is wearing her custom made sweater from a knitter in upstate New York. The “Look of Loyalty” theme for this first collection of 2013 is actually a permanent theme of Ivey Abitz life. And I was amazed at how this scene was like one of Cynthia’s watercolor looks brought to life:

Envisioning Ivey Abitz to Your Door

When you have a goal, such as collecting Ivey Abitz, it always helps to envision it in completion. Here is a vision of the Blanchefleur Vest in Regal Rosa Cotton Brocade transformed from a sample at to a box for shipping to your door. Although in this case it could only be shipped to one lucky shopper’s door because it was a one-of-a-kind piece, you now have a vision of what is in store…
