New Arrivals : INDRESS

Silk wrap blouse in ink (can also be worn open as a light jacket)

One of my favourite labels has arrived for fall. Indress always brings a beautiful collection of simple cuts, in luxurious fabrics, and a great sense of colour. The pieces are understated, but always with the option of accessorizing with a feather brooch, necklace, or headpiece. Pictured here are some (but not all!) of the styles we currently have in the shop. Simply stunning!

Not officially part of this collection, INDRESS generously made us a custom multicolour silk and feather necklace similar to the one pictured here, only using colours from this season’s collection. So beautiful!

Fall Outfits

Roberto Collina 3/4 sleeve knit jacket | Mercy Liberty Wool top | Iosselliani necklace | Jamin Puech Carabosse purse | Handmade leather palm crochet back cork gloves by Dents | Mercy quilted Liberty skirt

Looking for some Fall outfit inspiration? With cooler weather come great opportunities for layering! We’ve got knits from Roberto Collina in neutral colours, some with a hint of metallic to add a little sparkle to any outfit. Here the 3/4 sleeve knit jacket is layered over a Mercy Liberty print top (see above) and dress (see below).

Finally, accessories are best not overlooked! They really complete an outfit and give a place for the eye to rest. I’m constantly surprised how the complex and colourful Iosselliani pieces look so right with everything from a floral printed blouse to a graphic t-shirt.

Remember that mixing colour, texture, and even pattern can lead to a rich and satisfying outfit. If ever you have a question about styling or if you’re just wondering whether or not something is working, feel free to ask on your next visit. We would love to help you put together an amazing outfit!

FW 2012 Mercy : September

We have now received our first delivery of the Fall 2012 collection from Mercy.

Earlier this summer I visited the studio and took some photographs of samples. Now in store, we have beautiful light wool shirt dresses, tops, and button down shirts (in a variety of colours and prints), as well as quilted cotton Liberty dresses (cap sleeve and 1/2 sleeve) and stunning high-waisted skirts in abstract inky blue florals as well as grey-green.


On model : Mercy Liberty Print Wool Shirtdress in blue (also available in pink) $340
On mannequin : Antoni and Alison dress, Mercy Liberty Print Wool Shirt in blue, Maison Boinet belt,  Indress feather headpiece worn as a brooch.

And while you certainly don’t have to look like a mannequin to pull off this look (seriously – this Mercy shirt dress flatters most body types), it sure makes for a fun photograph!

New Arrivals : Feather Headpieces

We’ve just received some stunning new feather headpieces from Paris. They are part of the Indress label and each one is made by hand in Madame Simon’s Parisian atelier. These headpieces are an easy yet daring way to dress up a simple outfit for a special occasion. And some of them can even double as a necklace (see bottom right photo!)

 

 

(top left) Feather headpiece in dark green, $250 – must see in person and very black swan!

(middle and bottom) Anemone headpiece/brooch in taupe or in ecru, $280 – these also look great styled as a necklace (bottom right)

(not shown) Beaded “pearl” necklace ochre, $170
