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

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?

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.

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.

Ahh, Inhabit. God Bless. For your thoroughly amazing knitwear, I am grateful. Always great colours, great fits, and that whole simple-with-a-twist thing that I love so much!
100% cotton draped cardigan.
Cotton blend loose cable knit sweater.
Cashmere. Cardigan. Two words that are always good together.
Amazing cotton/linen blend tri-tonal scarves.

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!!!

The Millie Satchel. A great really lightweight bag, measuring 11" by 11" by 5". Features two big deep pockets, a medium size separate pocket, and two smaller separate pockets (such as the one visible here on the front), all with zipper closures.
The Trudy Messenger. A multipurpose bag, measuring 15" by 14" by 5". Two sets of straps will cover all your needs! Use the arm straps as a simple carry all, or throw Trudy over your shoulder for that breezy bike ride after work. The perfect messenger for spring!

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.
