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!

We are happy to be inviting several new labels to the store for this season, and we begin our new Fall Arrivals with beautiful wool scarves by Khadi and Co.

Khadi and Co. was founded by Danish designer Bess Nielsen in 2006. Over her illustrious career in the fashion industry, she has designed for other labels, such as Kenzo, before co-founding Epice, with Jan Machenhauer. Currently based in Paris, Bess has collaborated with textile artisans in India for over 30 years. She continues to do so with her label Khadi and co. The name of the brand, Khadi, means hand spun and hand woven cloth. The scarves we have for Fall are all made by hand, and are 100% wool. The work of creating these designs helps support three villages in India.
