Fashion in Leaves

Fashion in Leaves is ongoing personal project by Malaysian illustrator and artist Tang Chiew Ling that explores various forms of leaves and flowers as if they were fashion sketches. Ling previously merged flora with illustration in another series of images called Object Art, and if you liked this, also checkout Drawing with Leaves. (via The […]

Hellessy

We’ve just discovered Hellessy and are swooning over the Spring 2016 looks.  Founded in 2012 by Sylvie Millstein, HELLESSY is a day-to-evening designer collection focused on the modern philosophy of dressing women whose lives are organized around a need for pared-down elegance that is versatile and thoughtfully constructed. Millstein melded her multi-cultural background, expertise in […]

Flora Sportswear

As part of a recent series of embroideries, artist James Merry softened the bold logos of sportswear companies by adding stitched flora to vintage clothing. For instance a glacier flower and moss grow from an old Nike sweatshirt, and a FILA logo is topped by a mushroom cap. Merry is a longtime collaborator with Björk […]

Berries & Bark

Designer Sarah Smith at Modern Flower Child is experimenting with embedding all manner of plantlife into her handmade resin bracelets. Dried ferns, flowers, bark, and even peacock feathers are frozen in time inside these clear time capsules, a process that takes up to three weeks from design to pouring resin, curing, and shaping the final […]

Imaginary Flowers

Danse de Lune, also know as Art and Ghosts, is a UK based digital illustrator who draws inspiration from fairytales, dreams, nature, imaginary creatures and the supernatural. Her series Imaginary Flowers might be our favorite as she’s created up some of the most imaginative botanical leaves and buds. Isn’t her watercolor pallet just the dreamiest?! Art & Ghost prints available at Etsy and Society6

The Sukajan

You’ve come a long way, baby. From humble souvenir to runway sensation, the sukajan has enjoyed quite the ascent. This letterman-style embroidered bomber, often sumptuously decked out in tigers, koi, dragons, and cherry blossoms, has its origins in WWII, when troops who had served in Asia wanted a memento of their time overseas. They’ve since […]

Tumblr has been successful for us to show a more personal, lighter side of […]

Toronto Etsy Trends

New season?  New wardrobe inspiration!  Spring is on its way and it’s that time of the year when we can indulge in color, break out of the routine dark monochromes and experiment with interesting silhouettes.  Spring 2015 is bringing an array of fabulous possibilities.  Keep your eyes peeled for light yet rich fabrics, new colors […]

Summer 2015 Trends

Getting a handle on Summer’s lead fashion stories (the chic sportif, the ’90s-meets-’70s love-in, the Canadian tux redux) is simple enough — it’s just a trend report away.  Tracking down the individual pieces that capture the mood of the season requires a higher level of study.  Finding the ones that flatter and function, then working them […]

Vintage Valentines

They don’t make valentines like they used to.  The love notes given in the early 20th century were much more interesting than the cookie-cutter pop culture cards kids hand out today—in fact, some of them were deliciously strange.  Take a look back at the past of printed love, thanks to Page of Bats. Nothing says Valentine’s Day […]

Floral Beards

Apparently men putting flowers in their beards is becoming a new fashion trend. While we can appreciate this on an editorial level… ….if we ever saw a grown man on the street with that many flowers in his beard… we’d definitely tell that fella to shave the meadow – but please, leave the beard.  What do you […]
