From trends to inspiration, enjoy a preview of the season through the eyes of Creative Director Emily Smith.
”I think it started young when I would plaster Calvin Klein ads all over my room. Since we’ve introduced our new KindCotton Italian Chambray and L148 Authentic Denim, I love mixing them and going all-in on the look head-to-toe — also known as ‘the Canadian tuxedo’! They’re both endlessly versatile and add instant cool factor to your look.”
“Our L148 Authentic Denim has a beautiful, substantial hand feel that feels more like the jeans we remember growing up with, but it’s still comfy enough to hang out in at home. Since I’ve been staying in more than ever over the last year, it’s become staple in my everyday uniform, along with white shirts, sweaters and tees.”
“For Spring I close a mix of warm and cool shades that work in harmony—Crème Fraiche, Honeynut, Raffia, White and a gorgeous melange grey we’re calling Jute. They’re all meant to be mixed, matched and seamlessly layered into your closet from season to season as you build your wardrobe.”
“The Lafayette 8 is one of our icons, and we’ve had a lot of fun this season reinterpreting it in fresh ways. We worked with an amazing studio in Italy to make our totes, which are all crafted in natural, vegetable-tanned Italian vachetta leather. Everything from cutting the leather to weaving it and painting the edging is done by hand. I’m simply obsessed.”
“Our 8 Knot shoes have the same construction and are crafted in Spain. They’re really perfect for the way we’re living now—low key but chic with a slipper-like, comfy fit. And I love that all these pieces nod to something more meaningful. Our Lafayette 8 isn’t just a number, it’s also the sign for infinity—an unbreakable symbol of strength.”
