Even though we already did a post for this collection, I just had to share these great new images of some special pieces we have from INDRESS!
Antoni and Alison is in, just in time for our Spring shopping event today!
We are so happy to be introducing the Minä Perhonen line at Gaspard. In 1995, the brand was created by designer Akira Minagawa in Tokyo, Japan. One detail setting this brand apart from others, is the fact that their process starts with creating their own unique textile designs! They then construct the garments using their very own fabrics!
This season we have linen dresses and skirts, hoodies, tops and bottoms, including Japanese selvedge jeans. Only a few styles from the line are shown in the pictures below. So please see in-store for the collection.
from the designer:
minä perhonen is a fashion brand working to produce clothes which do not lose their allure through lapse of time. The design process begins with sketches, which are made into their original fabrics. Also, they aspire to develop new materials and techniques with production centers of home and abroad. The name of the brand originates in Finnish as the designer sympathized with the lifestyle and the culture of FINLAND; he has traveled many times through northern European countries. “minä” means “I” and “perhonen” is “butterfly,” with a wish to make many beautiful designs like those of butterflies’ wings. The brand logo signifies “various characters (dots) within oneself (rectangle shape).” Just like the species of butterflies are countless, the designs too continue to increase.
Chausser Japan grey patent loafers with tulip shaped heel!!
We are super excited to welcome back Chausser shoes! They are all made in Japan, and two of the styles are completely convertible into other styles. There are pictures of the transformations below, so take a look and we hope to see you soon!
We have just received the Spring Summer 2014 collection of handbags from Jamin Puech Paris. This season they have really outdone themselves! Each bag is unique and we have a great assortment of styles: from day bags to evening bags; small sequined bags to large raffia beach bags; colourful bags, and bags in neutral colours. This is probably my favourite collection from Jamin Puech to date! Each handbag has been designed with a special attention to detail, and we hope to show them off to you in person!
