New Arrivals

New Arrivals : Maison Boinet

We’ve just received our Spring Summer 2013 collection of belts from Maison Boinet. This season we are introducing new styles, as well as replenishing some of the classics. The perfect way to add definition to your waist, or simply polish off an outfit, these belts are as functional as they are flattering.

See below for a closer look at selected styles.

Short Stories : BLESS

BLESS T-shirt dress

BLESS began in 1996 as a collaboration between Ines Kaag in Berlin and Desiree Heiss in Paris. Straight out of fashion school, in a creative attempt to find jobs, the pair took out an ad in i-D magazine for a Rod-Stewart -like fur wig (seriously!). When a new Parisian shop called Colette was looking for an opening lineup and asked to see their collection, rather than be hired to work for someone else, their business was born.

To find out more about BLESS, read this excellent interview in Icon Magazine – thanks for the link Trish!

Pictured in this post are many of the designs by BLESS we have in store – and the pieces below are for both women and men.

April Arrivals : Mercy SS 2013

Swiss cotton blocked shirt dress

We just received three very cool new dresses from the Mercy Spring Summer collection. The Swiss cotton blocked shirt dress (above) is inspired by the idea of a woman wearing an oversized men’s shirt. This dress can either be belted, or worn loose, and instantly makes you feel put together because it’s like a crisp white shirt, but better. For the transitional weather we’ve been experiencing of late, I’ve been wearing my white cotton shirt dress like a tunic over skinny jeans. This piece has quickly become a Spring favourite.

New Arrivals : Indress SS 2013

Indress is one of my favourite labels. Their Spring/Summer collection has just arrived and is excellent (I have already picked up a few pieces for myself!)

For this season you will find beautiful fabrics, great cuts, and colour – including the Pantone colour of the year – green! Pictured here are many but not all of the styles we now have in store.

Antipast SS 2013

We now have a full display in the shop dedicated to the Spring Summer collection of hosiery from Antipast Japan. Super beautiful tights and socks to pair with boots (for now), and soon with ballet flats, maryjanes, strappy sandals – almost anything!

Mannequin look : Spring Break

Liberty of London : Baby

We are so excited to be bringing you Liberty of London baby clothes! Not only do we have the most luxurious cashmere hats, booties, onesies, and a quilted reversible kimono jacket, but Mercy has made a limited number of patchwork blankets with Liberty of London cotton from their fabric archives and they are beautiful!

We’re just starting to welcome Spring into the shop. And what better way than with these first arrivals from the Mercy SS 2013 collection. Great for right now, let’s still keep our fingers crossed that Spring will be here soon!

Short Stories : Lochcarron of Scotland

Established in 1947, Lochcarron of Scotland creates some of the world’s best textiles including authentic tartans. Their mills produce fabric for such luxury brands as Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, and Burberry. In addition to that list, Gaspard owners Jennifer and Richard make winter coats with Lochcarron textiles for their label, Mercy.

For Mercy’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection, there are two coats made of these prestigious textiles: a Blackwatch Tartan Mohair coat with silk-lined pockets and sleeves (top) and a Herringbone Mohair coat with horn buttons (center). I’ve also included a picture of Mercy’s plaid coat (bottom) from last season because it is so special and we only have one left!

With our Winter Sale on now, it is the perfect time to find your next coat!

New Arrivals : Carre Royal Wallets

We just received some beautifully designed wallets from Carré Royal Paris. They fit everything including 15 credit cards (more even!), a check book, pen, bills, and have 2 zippered pockets (one inside, one outside).
Made of the softest leather, we have them in 3 colours: green, navy, and red. Jennifer and I are modelling them above along with our favourite matching bracelets from the new Iosselliani arrivals!

ps. we also have a few Carré Royal wallets from last season that are now on sale!
