Toronto designer Leah Antoinette showed Elan + Castor’s new Summer ready-to-wear collection at David Pecaut Square this afternoon for Toronto Fashion Week. The airy knits and custom silks immediately had me dreaming of relaxing on a warm beach this winter somewhere gorgeous down south. It’s rare to see designs that manage comfort, coziness and elegance at once, but Leah has done it. Hand-dyed silks and hand-woven knits are highly covetable on the best of days, but on this cold, rainy afternoon in Toronto these pieces are a special kind of daydream. xo
Marilyn Monroe’s marriage to Joe Demaggio was the inspiration for our Ms. September calendar girl at Kingpin Chic. With the Jays season coming to a close it is only appropriate to show off this luxe silk vintage baseball jersey now available at Kingpin Hideaway. The 2014 calendars will soon be on sale so be sure to pick one up for your loved one as a Christmas stocking stuffer. Watch Dailytoole for the launch details. x
