Now that it's not -20 outdoors anymore and most of us up here are just sick of all the heavy winter coats! but Canadian spring days are very unpredictable even if your an avid weather watcher, it has made me embraced the concept of layering. I just love this new collection by Ryan Roche and the way she plays with tone on tone textures! She does it so well I want every piece.
I was in a fabric store last week and I started up a conversation with another customer who had nothing but good things to say about this Vancouver based company by the name of Oak and Fort. For the past few years I haven't been enthusiastic about clothes shopping cause nothing seems to fit right. When she said they are bringing back the atelier culture back to the local level, I was over the moon. Check out some of my favourite pieces. Don't forget to get yourself something for the holidays too ;)
Capsule n°2 is an Interesting concept by Mosaert
Mosaert's capsule 2 consists of cardigans, pull, polos and socks designed and produced in limited quantities in Europe. It is characterized by a mixture of the meeting of the "English school" cuts, the checker and isometric patterns and the warm colours of the African wax.

Lately I've been on the hunt for glasses & I came across these!
Bôhten's manufacturing process starts with reclaimed wood & acetate harvested in the heart of West Africa. The lightweight eyeglasses are designed in Canada and handcrafted in a zero-waste facility. This is the first step of our production plan to move our all research, development and manufacturing expertise to Canada and eventually Africa. The frames are protected by a water resistant protective varnish. Our design and production team is working towards pushing the boundaries to introduce timeless designs.
