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


Introducing : Wouters & Hendrix

We are excited to welcome Wouters & Hendrix to our jewelry offerings here at Gaspard. The designers behind this label are Katrin Wouters & Karen Hendrix, who are graduates from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. They like to play in contrasts: between shadow and light; ostentation and austerity, and have a wonderful sense of humour, as demonstrated in their Onyx and Labradorite ring pops (see in store!).

While fun in design, the materials they use ensure a sophisticated and timeless beauty. The pieces are plated in 18k gold, over a sterling silver base. The stones featured in the current collections include Onyx, Labradorite, and Rutilated Quartz. Photographed below are only a few of the pieces we are carrying. Please visit us in-store to view our full selection.

New Arrivals : Liberty Silk Tops


Looking for something new to take you from Summer to Fall? A silk t-shirt is a great all-season piece: light and breezy with a skirt or shorts in the summer; and acts as an insulating layer in cooler weather when paired with a blazer and trousers for work, or a cardigan and skinny jeans for the weekend.

Both of these new tops by Mercy are made of Liberty of London silks. And are now available in store.
