New Arrivals : Iosselliani

The wait is over! The new Fall/Winter Collection by Iosselliani has arrived from Rome and it does not disappoint. Whether looking for statement jewelry for a night out, or even just the everyday, you will be sure to find a unique piece from this collection to complement your wardrobe and take your outfit to the next level!

Multi strand necklace with green Jasper stone and Swarovski rhinestones | Stacked set of 4 rings | Multi-strand bracelet with coloured rhinestones | Brass mail bracelet with Tiger’s eye and Jasper stone


Gold plated “Bamboo” choker with black agate stones


Thin brass earrings with coloured rhinestones (can be worn 2 ways : as a stud earring, or with the chain fringe) | Fringe earrings with red Tiger’s eye stone | Multiwire bracelet with Black Agate, Tiger’s eye, and Swarovski rhinestones


We had a very similar collar piece in white last season and it was one of the most popular and photographed for fashion magazine editorials. This black version is just stunning!


Blue tiger’s eye earrings | Green Swarovski Earrings


Necklace with Swarovski rhinestones | Fringe earrings


One of two long necklaces from this collection. Gold plated, with black agate beads. We had it on the mannequin with the new Mercy quilted Liberty dress and it sat perfectly framed by the waist.


This long fringe necklace with Black Agate and Gunmetal plating looks great with an oversized tee, tunic, or a drop waist dress.

Introducing : Chausser

We are very excited to be introducing Chausser footwear from Japan to the shop. We have 3 styles in-store: a black oxford with removable (!) fringe, a brown ankle boot with curved upper (great worn with casual dresses or jeans) and patent loafers in both ivory and navy, which are just plain cool. Any of these would make a great addition to your footwear wardrobe this Fall.

Black oxford with fringe, $480

Same black oxford with fringe removed! (the laces are hidden)

Brown lace-up ankle boot, $525

Ivory patent leather loafers, $460

Navy patent leather loafers, $460

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!

FNO & Antipast

Grey lace Antipast tights ($65) – they also come in black, blue, dark navy, and cream. One thing that makes these special is that there is no seam up the middle to the waistband. They are all one piece!
Les Prairies de Paris Python heels $395

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend our Fashion’s Night Out event on Thursday. We had a lot of fun hosting, and are already looking forward to our next party (stay tuned!)

We also want to congratulate Sonja on winning the sock decorating contest – what a great looking sock (see last picture) She won a beautiful pair of socks by Antipast!

We still have many styles of Japanese tights ($65-$95 each) and socks ($45) available in the shop. Though they are proving to be quite popular (especially the wool tights), so visit soon!

Fashion’s Night Out : Antipast Launch

Come celebrate Fashion’s Night Out with us this Thursday September 6, from 6-9pm. We will be launching the new accessories collection from Antipast Japan, which includes the coolest socks and tights!
