Matière Noire: French for Dark Matter

CAMPAIGN-FW14-Visual-41 CAMPAIGN-FW14

Matière Noire is french for ‘’dark matter’’: the mysterious matter, which theoretically accounts for a large part of the total mass of the universe that appears to be missing.

Matière Noire is a Canadian fashion house founded with the idea that high quality, well-designed products should be sustainable and priced properly. Through founder and creative director Cécile Raizonville’s interest for architecture, arts, culture and craftsmanship, Matière Noire’s collections are characterized by mixing feminity/masculity and tradition/modernity.

All the garments are locally produced, using mainly natural fabrics. Each season Matière Noire tries to collaborate with different ‘’artist’’ in order to use different process to create unique pieces.

Matière Noire is a collaborative project that encourage consciousness, boldness and a curious approach through creative collaboration with Montreal artistic scene. The brand currently produces all of its products in Canada.  As the line evolves we seek to employ mainly organic fabrics. Through these collaborations Matière Noire seeks to root the brand in the Montreal artistic scene.

Sweden’s best export is back for fall 2014.

Known for their easy and understated basics, you’ll love this season’s coats, sweaters and trousers. We’re big fans already of the Poppy coat and the Philly sweater (it’s so amazing we’ve already sold two during this September heatwave!).

Hope is a Swedish fashion label created in 2001, by the designers Ann Ringstrand and Stefan Söderberg.  It begun as a creative discussion between the two friends, who are both extremely passionate and interested in well-made utility wear.

Hope’s first Stockholm flagship opened in 2006 and the line quickly became known for its classic designs.  Fans of the brand love Hope’s trousers, outerwear and knits.

We’re excited to see the new SS15 collections from all your favourites, including A Détacher, Black Crane, Apiece Apart, Mary Meyer, Markoo, and Hope.  A Détacher designer Mona Kowalska’s SS15 collection was inspired by “Childhood Boredom.” We cannot wait to see how that translates into a collection.

End of summer means the arrival of fall winter 2014 collections. Shop now for the first wave of the shop’s new deliveries; new fall winter pieces from Black Crane, A Piece Apart, Mary Meyer and Study New York.

Pictured, our fave pieces from Apiece Apart. 

APIECE APART is a line of elevated basics – building block pieces that are as versatile as the woman wearing them. The label is brought to life through clean lines, chic, simple shapes, impeccable tailoring and beautiful fabrics. It balances the simple with the sophisticated; the classic with the modern. APIECE APART was born during a trip to West Texas for the designers’ 30th birthdays. Inspired by the austere and beautiful landscape, Starr Hout and Laura Cramer conceived of a simplified wardrobe, one that could be packed into a single bag – simple items that could be mixed and matched to go anywhere and do anything.
