For 24Design Izabela Lapinska has produced a limited edition of coats that epitomize the spirit of her collection – modern and feminine.

Izabela’s work epitomizes the spirit of true individuality and the perfect balance between classic design and modern lifestyles. Meticulously chosen fabrics, hand-crafted details, ornaments and attention to the quality of the work give all her garments an unrepeatable quality. Wrought buttons, silver buckles, embroidery and lacework, and unusual calligraphy made on silk are just some of Izabela’s trademarks.

‘I am inspired by femininity. I approach each new project individually using design to paint a portrait of women. Each design poses a new challenge. Meeting the customer and the emotion that the preparation of the garment entails are the real rewards for me. This makes me feel happy and fulfilled. I love what I do, working when I feel inspired, not being determined by passing trends, this is why my designs remain timeless’.

Each creation that leaves Izabela’s atelier possesses its own specially designed, hand-made detail – a buckle inset with real stones, a silver button or fastening, embroidery and lace collars. Izabela cooperates with master craftsmen, who are responsible for the making of the garment’s details, to ensure she creates the highest quality designs possible. The craftsmen’s work can sometimes last for weeks but the effect can never be forgotten. As a result, the clothes have their own true character and possess a real soul.
