It’s been an exciting week at the shop with beautiful new pieces from Italy! New arrivals include knits in black and ecru from Roberto Collina, as well as the popular shirting from Le Sarte Pettegole! We don’t have pictures so you’ll have to visit and see them in real life, and I think they are even better than last year. Hope to see you this weekend!
We are very excited to be introducing this new label to Gaspard. The Ermanno Gallamini Brand was created in 2013 by Angelo Gallamini, heir of the famous Gallamini family tradition in the Italian fabric market.
For many decades the Gallamini family has made unique and fine fabrics for craft-tailors and fashion designers, leaders in high quality “Italy Style” products around the world.
The collection arises from materials: exclusive and precious fabrics, strictly made in Italy, used for the sartorial production of ponchos, large cloaks, blankets, waistcoats, hats, ties and belts.
All the Ermanno Gallamini items testify to a timeless style, dedicated to high profile customers seeking not only fashion but also excellence.
Wear his ponchos over everything: jeans, casual dresses, suits, everything.
Follow @angelogallamini on Instagram if you like pictures of vintage watches (he has an impressive collection), bull dogs (his dog just had puppies!), or beards (there are a lot of great selfies!)
We are so excited to be introducing beautiful new designs from Gillian Steinhardt to the shop! We really love how she uses classic materials in a modern way, creating refreshing and timeless pieces.
Take a walk on the wild side with the new collection from Wouters & Hendrix. In it they revisit the heyday of Studio 54 with a modern twist. This collection will debut in the shop on Thursday November 13, as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the designers from Antwerp. We hope you will join us for the evening where artwork from the designers will be displayed and the new jewelry collection will be presented.
We just received new winter hats and scarves from Inverni of Florence! Made exclusively in Italy since 1892, we have many styles made with a palette of soft natural materials and nuanced colours in cashmere, alpaca, and wool. Pictured here are only a few. See in store for the full collection.
Made in Japan, Chausser crafts beautiful, beautiful footwear. If you look closely, the attention to detail in design and construction are completely impressive. You just don’t see boots like this elsewhere. Each style here is unique, serving a different form and function. Really, it will be hard not to buy one of each.
This is really a chelsea boot in disguise, as there are hidden elastic panels on either side, that allow you to simply slip them on, with the help of a shoe horn. This is also the only style that already has vibram rubber soles – saving you a visit to the cobbler.
Stunning. These look great over skinny jeans, or with a casual dress. I’m already thinking about how great these will look with some of the Antipast hosiery!
We are very excited for this season’s new arrivals from knitwear line, Roberto Collina. The company is located close to Bologna, and 100% of their production is in Italy.
Pictured here are only a few styles we currently have – see in store for more!
Several styles feature angora wool, which is obtained ethically, and also results in a higher quality yarn.
More about the process is detailed on the garment tag, or feel free to ask us.
We are very excited to welcome our first new arrivals for Fall! Starting with Indress from Paris, we have some beautifully luxurious wool dresses and sweaters, as well as a silk tuxedo blouse (see below). Not shown, but in-store, are a black and gold stripe sweater (stay tuned for pictures soon!) and 2 beautiful silk and feather necklaces (in dove grey, and in black and blue, both of which are very well priced!) Definitely looking forward to Fall now!
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!
