Antoni + Alison

New Arrivals : Antoni and Alison SS 2013

Each a work of art, Antoni and Alison’s dresses are designed using traditional media like paint, paper, beads, and sequins. They are then applied to silk crepe de chine digitally, and these delightful trompe l’oeil dresses are born. Perfect for a summer wedding or event, these conversation pieces are sure to catch everyone’s eye!

**Please note we have started carrying a larger size range than previously in this line**

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!
