This is our very first season with Helmut Lang, and we are so thrilled. Every single one of us that works here is dying for it! We have had quite a bit come in, but here are a few teasers.

This double zip cotton/linen motorcycle jacket is unbelievable. It is soooo hot. I love the mesh cutouts (pictured below with nothing underneath).

This modal sleeveless cowl neck with drape front cardigan in the same fabric, can be worn together, or paired back with just about anything else!

Lutz & Patmos

This is called 'cashmere tissue', which is actually a very apt name for this fabric, which is basically unbelievable.

Ahh, linen, my drug of choice. Long cardigan. AMAZING.

Again with the linen knit. Very flattering ruched-front design, and done in a lovely shade of navy blue no less!

Beautiful rounded silhouette, done in very soft organic cotton.

ORGANIC by John Patrick

The people behind John Patrick ORGANIC are the coolest people I have ever met. Listening to them talk about their line is just music to my ears. Hearing them talk about ethical and ecological manufacturing is really just awe-inspiring. And kudos to them; they produce an amazing product, and do it in a way that is very, very good to our world.

This trench is made of recycled nylon. Such a cool feel to the touch. The fabulous striped tank underneath is made of 100% organic cotton, from their organic cotton farm in the jungle in Peru. Seriously. How cool is that?

ENORMOUS Delivery of T by Alexander Wang!!

This is the biggest delivery of T by Alexander Wang we have EVER had! A lot of repeats of the classic faves: the baggy racerback tank, the one pocket tee, and quite a few new styles too!

R13 - Plaid Is Rad!

100% lightweight cotton is two simple colourways. Who says plaid needs to keep us warm? Paired nicely with a white tank underneath.

Rag & Bone - Our FIRST Delivery Ever!!

Pow! This shirt and blazer (aka 'the Shirred Boyfriend shirt' and 'the Boston coat') are the "IT" pieces for Spring. Lightweight and long, both pieces have pockets, and wear really easy with anything. Pair the shirt with some skinnies or throw the blazer overtop a floor length jersey summer dress.

Cute as can be, cropped stripe top. Another must have in the stripe department for Spring.

Named 'the Highland Coat', it should be renamed 'the Best Military Style Jacket I Have Ever Seen in Real Life'. Looks just as good open as it does shut, stunning rounded hemline, and done in a gorgeous black cotton. LOVE IT!

3.1 Philip Lim - Spring!

Stunning! Amazing! Beautiful! How can anyone say no to this HOT outfit. Wear it as a dress or over the new Helmut Lang or Rag & Bone leggings.

This dress is a gorgeous hue of mauve. Its structure is lady-like in a 50's sort of way. A MUST HAVE for all those upcoming garden parties!

Red is the new Black! Laser cut scalloped sleeve detail make this piece a perfect balance between casual jersey and feminine silk.

100% cotton draped cardigan.

30% linen, 70% cotton.

Cotton blend loose cable knit sweater.

Cashmere. Cardigan. Two words that are always good together.

Gary Graham Is Here!

Isn't this red skirt to die for?! And doesn't it look just stunning with Alexander Wang's Chanel inspired jacket which is on SALE from Fall?! Perfect for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies and of course the parties that follow...

Anna De Courcy - Spring Delivery

Anna De Courcy's jewelry is so hauntingly beautiful, it's actually hard not to want more than one piece! Lucky for you, it looks amazing layered, so you'll have an excellent excuse. A Vancouver local, and a Misch obsession, De Courcy sources antique objects from around the world to influence the authenticity of her one-of-a-kind designs. To imagine the stories behind these lost relics may take your thoughts to a far off land of...well let's not get carried away (then again why not!).

This navy jacket is to die for!!! Along with every single other item that just came from the very, very hot BOY by Band of Outsiders. American designed, Italian manufactured, all with just the right twist of, um, boyish-ness.

This school-boy blazer in black is a really great way to bring springs 'Prep' into your closet, in the kind of way that you will never, ever get tired of! We love it over dresses, over more bohemian styles, over pants, over shorts, over everything!!

This lightweight swing peacoat is necessary. Absolutely necessary.

The long single button black blazer. If you have yet to invest in a really great blazer, this is the one to get. Classic, sexy, long, lean, clean, FABULOUS!!!

Vanessa Bruno!!! First Spring 2010 Delivery!!

Yes, it's Vanessa Bruno!! I would have to say that this line really holds a very broad base of appeal to our clients... feminine, soft lines with fabulous fabrics, yet interesting, modern and cool. Who doesn't want that?

This vintage print silk top with inset lace detail (below) might be that top you wish you had five of.

Incredibly soft cashmere/ wool blend sweater dress, with some amazing gathering detail on the shoulder.

Blue silk dress with folding detail. You have probably heard me say a thousand times how much I love these sort of dresses for their go-anywhere-ness. With a blazer to work!!! With high heels for cocktails or an afternoon wedding!! Love it.

This linen knit summer day dress (from her Athe line) speaks for itself. It makes me wish it was warm out RIGHT NOW!!!!!

Black crepe strapless dress from her mainline. There is actually two different fabrics making up all the layers that go all the way around this dress. I think it is hard to see the details in the photo, but it is a gorgeous piece, I can assure you.

Black crepe drape front blazer... looks amazing closed as photographed here, looks amazing open just hanging. Structured jackets with this kind of liquidity don't come along every day.

Gathered leather clutch, only in fuchsia.

STUNNING. Large brown leather/suede combo messenger bag. The flap pocket you can see here is actually on both sides; the bag is reversible? Very useful, all those pockets I think.

The smaller version of the brown one, but in green for more of a statement.
