This great big fabulous cashmere-wrap-meets-cardigan is completely perfect for some chillier weather... it's hard to imagine, I know. But you will really wish you had it when it is!! It's the most amazing shade, sort-of navy and brown together, but it looks charcoal-ish.

We paired it here with the Alexander Wang waffle knit tee (taken too big and worn very well as a dress).

This taupe cashmere vest is also amazing, and I wish we had a lot more of these than I do, because I do sort of feel like everyone should have it. That is not possible however, I only have three...

Paired here with the forte.forte slip for my favorite colour combo of nude with taupey/grey! When it's chillier than today, imagine this fabulousness: this outfit, but with black leggings and the black Sartore boots. AMAZING.

Plus, we have one of each size of their amazing little basic cotton turtleneck in black.

Michelle: WHY IS THIS ON SALE?!?!?

This forte.forte silk ballerina skirt (regularly $417, now on sale 40% off for $250) is quite obviously amazing for right now, but even thinking forward to fall: paired with cute frenchy-style stripes, or even a leather bomber jacket, and worn with tights and ankle boots it is SO FIERCE AND FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yoshi Kondo striped cotton jacket (on sale from $742 to $297... actually!) within Inhabit cashmere neckwarmer.

The skirt with Nili Lotan striped cashmere sweater (on sale from $465 to $140... I know, this sale is ridiculously good).

Some Very Interesting Things on ORGANIC from the Designer Himself

John Patrick – Designer of ORGANIC


One day a few years ago, while traveling in Amsterdam, I decided to make a
list of the things I loved and really believed in and the list consisted of
elements found in nature, such as the sky, plants, and the natural earth. This
was very inspiring to me and this was the foundation for my collection.

I have been designing clothes my whole life and I am interested in not only
the final result but the craft itself, as well as the people who make the whole
process happen. It’s a very long chain from seed to shirt.

Materials / Techniques

We specialize in cottons and as a result, we spend a significant amount of
time in Peru. In regards to the styles / fashions, we make fashion that speaks
for itself.

I use both my own organic cotton, which I grow in the jungle in Peru and we
also use Organic cotton fabrics, which I design and then have made. We
also like to use recycled fabrics that no one else in interested in and re-use
and work them into fashion.

We are producing out clothing in ethical work environments and
empowering workers to make a fair wage.

What makes ORGANIC “green”?

Vertical integration is when the entire process from spinning yarn or
weaving cloth from the fiber is done by one entity. We have done an
experiment to take this concept further by working with 10 farmers in the
jungle and then having the their cotton moved to the city, where the fiber is
then spun into yarn. We are using the yarn for producing men’s tee shirts,
which we call the “Jungle Tees.”

I think one of my simplest innovations has been to embrace “mistakes” into
the design process. The idea of “perfect” is so imperfect...and creates an
enormous amount of waste in "re-doing" things. As a company, we think and
behave in many unique ways. For instance, we needed white organic
shirting to make the classic button front shirt but I couldn’t find organic
shirting so I used organic bed sheets for the samples and the production.
Now, it has become a fabric we love and use each season.

ORGANIC by John Patrick

Another new line for us this season!

These fabulous ribbed leggings are perhaps the softest material possible. They are 20% wool, and 80% cotton, and are organic!!

This long sleeve cotton tee is really long bodied, soft, organic and fabulous! Perhaps the nicest tee I have ever seen...

Alexander Wang: will you marry me and give me clothes for as long as we both shall live?

Damn you, Alexander Wang. Damn you for being so, so very amazing at what you do.

If a dress could kill, I would get arrested for selling this, and you would go to jail for wearing it.

Ha ha, he never had a chance, poor guy.

A little bird told me that Holts has already sold out of this dress completely... and I can see why! It's sooo sexy, and cute, and not so formal that it would be hard to wear.

This high waisted, super tight mini is so sexy I could cry. I love the zipper up the back and this detail on the side (below).

This mini is an asymetrical wrap, and has the coolest foldover waistband detail.

This washed georgette top has a leather shoulder strap on one side. I love that! The leggings we paired them with unfortunately did not photograph very well at all, but they are INSANE. They are called the 'digital ottoman leggings', which only begins to make sense and you see the incredible ribbing and seaming detail on them. They are super heavy and are, I have to say, one of my favorite trends of the Fall season.

He refers to this design detail, shown here in a black skirt and white top, as "cage", which I like even more because of the name.

This vest is one of my favorite for the season! The little capelet overlay detail makes it a bit different, and its heavier fabric and tailored cut gives it a really great waist silhouette.

This 100% cashmere circle scarf is designed with a twist in it so it always lays fabulously... just like this. It also comes in black, I don't even know which one I like better! There is a beanie in the same fabric (all the girls who were lucky enough to get thier hands on one last year can vouch for how amazingly cool they are)!

Nili Lotan!! 1st Fall Delivery!

Cute shirts!!

I love this outfit!!

Beautiful, light, gentle Forte Forte skirt and top (both on sale 30% off!), paired with this weightier 3.1 Phillip Lim belt from pre-fall ($332): the perfect marriage of opposites!

Under.Ligne by Doo-Ri!!

We are very pleased to be stocking Under.Ligne, the new line from the very fabulous DooRi Chung out of New York! Everything is done in jersey, and we bought it all in black! It is her first collection with this line, and we think you will love it!! Come check it out, there are more peices besides what's shown here!!

ginette_ny!!!! omg.

The very fabulous ginette_ny fall order has arrived! All done in a warm tone of 14k gold (very flattering on the skin), they often look best layered. Very popular amongst our regular clients, the appeal of this line is that the look is very subtle, yet incredibly feminine, beautiful and memorable.

Hanii Y!!! First Fall Delivery!!

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..... this delivery is so nice it almost hurts.

Wow. This charcoal grey flutter sleeve dress is fabulous, necessary, polished, comfortable, and sexy. Which is really saying something.

This dress is a wool/linen (!!) blend, with a silk overlay in the front, and the most gorgeous ruffle detail!

The flash made this skirt look like its lighter in the front, but its an even, textured, sort-of boucle meets plaid pattern (if that makes any sense!). It's sooo lovely.

This navy wool felt jacket is the kind of thing you would just live in for Vancouver weather. Plus its so darn good-looking!

This jacket is insane. It's so amazing! I keep trying it on and getting really giddy, Anna basically did the exact same thing I did. The hood has a bit of wire in it so it holds its shape, frames your pretty little face, and basically is just the coolest, sexiest little jacket ever created in the history of time. Plus the olive-y colour is gorgeous!

This little bolero jacket with really cool folded sleeve detail is awesome!! You could throw it on top of anything (including a dress, which let's be honest, is one of the hardest things to find when you really need it!).


We are now on sale 50% off for our spring collection!!!!

We have also just marked down our summer deliveries: FORTE FORTE, TROSMAN, the SARTORE sandals, and the last delivery of ISABEL MARANT 30% off!!!

Phillip Lim Pre-Fall Delivery

It's here and it's fabulous!! Yay Phillip!!

This white silk top is beautiful on (shown here with the Forte Forte shorts)!! It's so soft and feminine, but paired with something a bit more menswear, it becomes a necessary component of a look with more depth.

This dress is so fierce!! Wait till you see the ruffle detail in the back!!! This belt shown with it is pretty amazing too...

These grey shorts (shown here with the soon-to-be-sold out Alexander Wang tee's) are so hot!! I love them!! They come with this belt shown here. I'm so into this with heels or with flats.

This top (shown with the Alexander Wang black skinny pants) is so cute and fun! It has an exposed zipper down the front, so you can adjust the amount of skin showing... handy.
