Images of the new Zara April lookbook have been released and while I usually feel like I need to make a mad dash to the closest location to scoop up my favourites before they are already gone, it’s so refreshing that all I have to do is log into their new online shopping site. Ahhh, relief.
At the moment with snow surprising us each day here in Toronto, while last year this time it was 26 degrees, this lookbook gives us something to look forward to. Favourites in this collection are easily the crisp blue suit and the floral pants below but really, I’ll have everything. from the fitted blazers to the knit separates and relaxed jumpsuits.
It seems like all of our favourite brands are launching e-commerce sites in Canada, and with Pink Tartan jumping on this bandwagon, we couldn’t be more thrilled. With the launch taking place tomorrow, March 15th, it’s pretty much perfect timing as World MasterCard Fashion Week hits Toronto next week!
We have both been such avid fans of Pink Tartan since watching the collections strut the Toronto catwalk and the fact that we can get the looks with a simple click of the finger is even sweeter. Lovers of the brand can now enjoy easy online access to their beautiful pieces with shipping to Canada and U.S. Just when we think we’ll be able to control our online shopping obsession!
Below is a snapshot of what the e-commerce site will look like. Pretty and pink, of course.
We’ve taken a look at the site and love what the label has to offer. Are there any pieces you are hoping to covet?
On March 6th, Cat Footwear held a preview of their Autumn/Winter 2013 collection at the Fermenting Cellar in Toronto’s Distillery District.
Models posed atop wooden barrels lined at the centre of the space while guests mingled, sipped cocktails, and nibbled on very scrumptious hors d’oeuvres. The lovely musical stylings of Cat Jahnke complimented the atmosphere wonderfully and had many of us humming along.
The truly beautiful collection of leather and suede in an assortment of colours was a perfect example of Cat Footwear’s ability to perfectly merge functionality, design, and superior comfort.
Keep an eye out online and in store this fall!

H&M has just released its newest ad campaign for their Conscious Collection and I think we need Spring more than ever now! The whimsical backdrop of floral and greenery is just plain beautiful!
Along with the new campaign, the launch of the Conscious Garment Collecting Program at H&M will also take place. The program allows customers to bring any unwanted garments from any label to selected stores, and in return for each bag they give (with a minimum of two), they will receive an H&M voucher. I’m sure we have loads of clothing to give away!
H&M is running this program in an effort to prevent clothing from going to landfill, and will be the first program of its kind. We couldn’t think of a better idea for the large fashion retailer.
The full women’s collection will be available in H&M stores worldwide as well as online from March 25th, alongside Conscious collections for men, kids and babies.
Last night, apparel brand Moose&Beaver unofficially kicked off Toronto’s fashion month, as we like to call it, with the debut of their first collection.
Guests gathered at the Burroughes Building of Toronto’s Queen West neighbourhood to watch the unveiling of the label’s Fall/Winter 2013 line.
The knitted, printed, and beautifully constructed designs featured merino wool, alpaca and viscose yarns, distressed leather, and vintage fur in a range of neutral tones and complimentary pops of colour.
“I fell in love with Cornelia Parker’s Cold Dark Matter and Anti-Mass installations that were housed at the De Yonge Museum in San Francisco,” explains Creative Director and Owner Leah Antoinette of her inspiration for her first collection, “There is a quote from her that sums up much of what this collection represents, ‘…My work is all about the potential of materials – even when it looks like they’ve lost all possibilities.’”
Notable attendees: Natalie Brown, Susan Langdon, Andrew Sardone, Christopher Turner, Natalie Deane, and Kerry LaiFatt.
Moose&Beaver Apparel Fall/Winter 2013 will be available for sale across North America at mooseandbeaver.com.
The event was organized by Magnet Creative Management.
International Women’s Day is only a few days away, so what better way to celebrate the occasion than bringing together an inspiring group of female entrepreneurs?
This Saturday March 9th, Lilla Balint from The Black Box Boutique and Shellie Willms from Pomp & Pageantry have organized an exciting event at the beautiful PARK HYATT HOTEL in Yorkville called Women Supporting Women: Shop Local event which includes a number of amazing local vendors!
This event will be filled with beautiful company, high tea and snacks, free gel manicures, shopping and swag bags. Perfect right? We thought so!
Just when we thought this event couldn’t get any better, 15% of all proceeds will be donated to Dress for Success, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women around the world.
This is a great opportunity to get some of your girlfriends together and enjoy getting pampered while you soak up all of the successful estrogen that will be there, and all for only $10. But first, buy your tickets online now! We assure you, that you won’t regret it!
Don’t forget to follow WSW on Twitter and join the Facebook event to stay up to date this week before the big day!
We are so excited to attend and we can’t wait to see you there too!
We don’t think anyone’s wallets are ready for March 6th!
We are just a few days away from Zara Canada’s online shopping debut and after getting a sneak peek of the shopping experience, this new venture has definitely been worth the wait!
It has been music to our ears ever since we heard one of our favourite stores would now have an online shopping destination. There is nothing like shopping online and then realizing it is not offered in Canada. Now, not only do we get to shop Zara online, but it comes with benefits like shipping to the store instead of your home, and even the ability to return an online purchase to a store location. Even picking up your return straight from your home! That’s convenience at its best!
I had the chance to shop before March 6 and (so far) I’ve grabbed these two classic must-haves. After shopping Zara at Fairview Mall this weekend as well, it’s safe to say that Zara is one of my favourite places to shop for affordable and chic pieces.
Are you just as excited as we are for the launch?
Last night, Canadian brand Nella Bella held its Fall/Winter 2013 Expo Collection Preview at the St. James Cathedral Centre in Toronto.
The collection featured classic, structured, and functional designs in an assortment of 100% vegan and cruelty-free materials. Neutral shades such as black, tan, and silver, were crowd pleasers, but the bold blues and reds were the real stars of the show.
The evening also marked a milestone for Nella Bella and Creative Director, Tarek Al-Azbat, as he unveiled the brand’s first instalment of knitted scarves – a collaboration with fellow Canadian brand Dylanium Knits.
Many familiar fashion faces gathered to show their love and support for the brand. Among the attendees were: Susan Langdon, Anita Clarke, Gail McInnes, Christopher Turner, Natalie Deane, and Casie Stewart.
The collection will be available in-store and online in August.
This last photo has to be our favourite! The image truly captures the internal emotion a woman experiences when the safety of her beautiful handbag is threatened. Richard & Natalie: we love and adore you both!
