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!

New Arrival : Scarves by Inouitoosh

We are happy to be introducing the Inouitoosh scarf line from Paris. And just in time for this cooler weather!

Each scarf is made of either a soft Cashmere and wool, silk and wool blend, or a thicker boiled wool ($160-$195)

They make a great gift and come packaged in an envelope made from recycled Indian newspaper by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children.

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.

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!

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.
