Not too long ago our good friend Jan borrowed some goods from the shop for a shoot for his blog Manuel Labour. We didn’t really know what he was up to until now. We just caught wind of the photos he shot featuring the stunning Emma-Mackenzie Jardine in our clothes and they turned out well……pretty amazing!

Here’s a look at some highlights from our recent visit to the Comme des Garcons showrooms in Paris.
Junya Watanabe MAN x Duvetica collaboration next season is one of their best yet.
You can’t have a Junya collection without their popular Tricker’s collab.
More collaborations from the MAN line, this time with Levi’s…
Some fresh colours and patterns for Spring. Here’s one of them.
This is one of our favourite jacket’s next season, 3 Layer hooded Parka with plaid lined yoke and contrasting interior taped seams.
Ring belts galore!
More colors in classic Junya styling.
The SS13 Comme des Garcons Shirt line is one of the strongest we’ve seen from them. Lot’s of bright colours, patterns in their classic panelled designs.
We got a handful of beautiful knits coming through next season from the Shirt line. Can’t wait!
People can’t seem to get enough of PLAY. They got some new things in the works.
We’ll be welcoming the Perfume soon as well.
To some Friday the 13th is an unlucky date, but to us it made for an amazing night. Our friends at Reigning Champ recently completed their first offering of footwear in collaboration with Converse First String. Being an avid supporter and stockist of both brands, our newest Toronto location was the perfect setting for the world wide launch of this project. Along side Reigning Champ and Converse, we once again teamed up with inquiringmind magazine and Sapporo for the night’s festivities. Attendees were given an exclusive preview of Reigning Champs fall/winter collection as they partied to the night’s soundtrack provided by DJs Mattice and Amy Traphouse. Thank you for all those who came out and made it a memorable night, see you all soon.
Bedwin has just released their lookbook for their fall/winter 2012 collection titled “I’ll Be Your Mirror”, offering a preview of what to look forward to for the coming season. Once again taking inspirations from Rock’n'Roll, the Velvet Underground song titled collection reflects both cool and classic elements expected from the brand. Bedwin creates many unique and original pieces in a comprehensive range of accessories, T-shirts, menswear, and outerwear. Some of the standout pieces include an asymmetrical closure duffle coat, velvet pea coat, and casual tailcoat. Stay tuned for news on our upcoming fall/winter deliveries.
Here’s another short video featuring none other than Errolson Hugh of Acronym, Stone Island Shadow Project, Herno Laminar, and much more. This video is an insightful look into the design process that Errolson Hugh and his team go through, giving birth to countless innovations in technical apparel. What an amazing archive! We’re also quite proud to say that is Errolson is from Canada; just like us!
Here’s a short vid from the upcoming FW12 Sophnet. collection. Excitement for Kiyonaga’s newest offering is building and we can’t wait to get it in stores.
