Eve Salvail is an international fashion icon with an attitude and a style that sets her apart as a model, an actress and a DJ. Pascal Labelle is a designer from Montreal whose creations are sought after by celebrities thanks to his array of coats and jackets custom-made with the most valuable and highest quality materials. Together they designed a collection of hoodies inspired by the good fortune dragon tattoo on her signature shaved head and punk personality.

“Ève’s authenticity always inspired me. Ève is a person with whom I have what I would call an organic connection because she is real and self-assured. There is no half-measures with her as well as with the collection we created together. Each garment is made to fit, using the best, most valuable, first grade quality leather and materials, all confectioned right here in our Montreal studios.” says Pascal Labelle.

Pascal Labelle built a solid reputation of authenticity. His vision and his designs are influenced by this desire to stay true to his values and his beliefs. This unfulfilled quest led him to create the motto “United by our differences”. It is with this catchphrase in mind that Pascal Labelle, like a craftsman, makes his original coats using first grade genuine leather, natural fibers, valued raw material and textiles and high range furs. Spizoiky, Post Malone, Quavo, Walshy Fire, Zombie Boy and Eric Lapointe are some of his customers.

She pierces the silver screen in Ready to Wear, The 5th Element, Celebrity, Zoolander and in music videos such as Lenny Kravitz’s Isn’t There Any Love in Your Heart? As DJ Evalicious, she travels around the globe to set the dance floors on fire in VIP and glamorous events with clients such as Tag Hueuer, MTV, Lacoste, Maserati, Cartier, etc. Nearly 30 years later, Eve Salvail is still very proud and independent, but she remains still humble and unassuming.

“Anyone that knows me personally, knows that I always wear a hoodie. Before, I would have to hide my hoodies under fancier clothing to attend events because the hoodie in itself is a sport garment it was neither conceived nor worthy of the red carpet… A little secret: one of the collection’s design is based on a sweater I bought for myself 10 years ago. It was so old and ripped that I ended up having to trash it. It was my favorite lucky hoodie!” confides Eve Salvail.
