In Partnership With
It’s Finally Here! Gryphon x Man Repeller

In partnership with Gryphon.

I have been waiting to show you these freakin’ photos for the last 500 years. Just kidding, 500 is really pushing it who knows where the world even was 500 years ago, yeah yeah bla bla, you’re an archaeologist. But really, come on. I’m talking five hundred years. Or as Mayor Bloomberg would say: cinqo hundo. Now on to more important things: the trench coat I designed for Gryphon is finally for sale! Finally! For! Sale! On none other than my very own morning newspaper, e-commerce powerhouse, Shopbop! Shoppidy boppidy!

The fancy felines over there requested that I style five looks implementing the coat to show off its versatility and so I did just that, with the help of talented friend and photoman, Aram Bedrossian. Thanks hombre. Now, below you’ll find some unedited real life party time photos from the day of the shoot that didn’t make it onto Shopbop’s front page. They’re here because well, my life mantra is “live shit unedited,” and if I didn’t pay that forward to the public, ergo, you, I’d be doing mankind or at least my readership a disservice. Dis. Service. I think I may still be slightly intoxicated from last night.

Exhibit A:

Look at me! I can fly! Just kidding, I can’t! But my dress sure can! I’m speaking in an accent just so you know how to act this out during your dramatic reading of this post. (Jacket by Gryphon, duh. Dress by Gryphon, bag by M Missoni, booties by Alexander Wang)

I call this one: jacket by day, cape by…day. Mixing prints is my specialty, you know. (Dress by Gryphon, leopard booties by Giuseppe Zanotti, purse by Rebecca Minkoff.)

Ok, so, call us!

My jacket is so versatile, I can even cheerlead while wearing it! (Palazzo pants by Gryphon, sweater by Gryphon, and makeshift turband: also, Gryphon.)

Here’s a little look I like to refer to as “Look at me, I’m a Brownstone, Carrie Bradshaw totally used to live inside of me.” That’s all fine and well. But my name is Leandra. (Sweater: Gryphon, jeans: J Brand, purse: Alexander Wang, shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti.)

Remember that song Telephone? This has nothing to do with that. (Dress: Gryphon, sweater: Gryphon, booties: Alexander Wang.)

This, however, eloquently suggests that you please take me up when I say, nay, scream, “call me!” Also, buy this trench. Do it.

  • Anonymous

  • This coat is wonderful! Such a gorgeous color.

  • Anonymous

    Leandra,that inverted pleat with contrast is making me weep with lust . . . I cannot wear your coat, as double-breasted anything makes me look like a middle linebacker for the Steelers, but I think I will DIY the inspired back design.Congratulations! and thanks for validating my entire life in fashion – I've been man repelling for decades now, but couldn't ever put my finger on what to call it.

  • That is a fabulous trench!

  • you are way tooo cute!

  • Aya

    I love the one of you LEANING on the traffic light. You are so cute. Also pretty.
    You're such a breathe of fresh air from all the other bloggers that just look wistfully down at their outfits or play with a wisp of hair while gazing off into the great blue yonder. Thank you for smiling and making crazy bat lady faces.

  • Congrats on the coat! It is fabulous! Love every way you styled it. Bravo!

  • A classic coat for realz…and my fave are the "jacket by day,cape by day" pics:)

  • @anonymous @stephkornblum It DOES come in large! Duh! It just sold out!! That's why it doesn't show up!

  • Kaybee

    $620. Why so much? I like your stuff, but I can't afford to live like that. I guess you are not for everyone? How stupid of me to assume.

  • Awesome. just plain awesome!!!!

    many thanks from http://bestseocompany.sg

  • I’m perhaps too old to be here, but everybody looks fabulous


  • Alice

    you know what, I simply adore you, Leandra, your name including! love your style and how unique you are, not to mention you humour. To think of all those bloggers who make the same face every time someone snaps them and the same pose to look thinner, makes me laugh. YOU are a legend! you make my days better and trust me, it’s pouring rain outside, and I don’t care! Stay the way you are :), for ever and ever!

  • Nicole G

    Wowzys, your old fashions were much less man-repelling! Nothing wrong with that, but I am definitely enjoying the evolution πŸ™‚
