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.

Fawn: A Toronto Must for 18 Waits Designer Daniel Torjman

Check the Thompson Hotel blog for 18 Waits designer, Daniel Torjman, for his list of “Toronto musts” for Thompson Hotels.

According to Daniel, Fawn is a Toronto must and describes us as:

Fawn is a women’s clothing boutique, but it’s one of my favorite stores in Toronto. Kasha, who opened it about 6 years ago, comes from a styling background and has a killer eye and aesthetic. Her merchandising and selections are always an inspiration for me and it’s my go-to spot to send out-of-town guests when they’re looking to shop.

Thank-you Daniel for including us on your list. We’re in good company!

Art Teacher Chic – Study New York.

We love Study New York’s ikat print shirt dress which we couldn’t agree more represents what style.com dubs “Art-teacher chic”—loose tunics, big ceramic necklaces, modest shoes—which has become the go-to uniform for fashion-y women who are done with overdone.

New York-based clothing label Study, is an ethical contemporary womenswear brand produced in New York City using sustainable materials.

Study is an ethical contemporary womenswear label based in Brooklyn, NY.  Study aims to make seasonless clothing locally and ethically without subscribing to the traditional fashion calendar.  Their goal is to create the ideal wardrobe for their ideal individuals (you). Study believes the clothes we wear should be well-made using quality materials, and the hands that manipulate those materials should be respected and cared for.

Study’s 2.1 Ikat shirdress (pictured) is available in store now.

Vladimir Karaleev – Berlin Fashion Week SS14

This season, Fawn is all over Vladimir Karaleev’s SS14 collection.

Elegant and subtle, the focus is on textiles, layers and depth, and producing geometrically shaped garments.

The collection consists of combinations of white, grey and soft dusty pinks which shimmer gold when caught in the light…exactly what we’re feeling for summer.
