This spring, Cotton Ginny aims to enter the realms of eco-fashion with the launch of its Ology collection, which feature 100 per cent sustainable fibres. Using combinations of bamboo, soy and corn with certified organic cotton, Cotton Ginny is fusing environmentally friendly materials with impressively stylish designs. Bamboo is the fastest-growing and perhaps most versatile plant that’s also completely biodegradable — plus it’s durable, soft on the skin and fairly priced (most items are under $70).
The prints, colours and silhouettes of each grouping subtly reflect the cultures that inspired them.
See how hip sustainable style can be be when these eco-chic offerings hit select Cotton Ginny locations next week. Find out more at www.cottonginny.ca.
Sure, there’s still slush on the streets, but hardcore shoe tarts know to that forward planning is key when it comes to dreamy footwear.
Even a casual eye on the fashion mags will confirm that this spring/summer one of the must-have shoes is clearly a wedge-heeled espadrille. Comfy and retro-chic, there are many variations on the trend.
And one of the best options comes from Le Château — available in a multitude of brights with a peek-a-boo open toe detail, these silk cuties are yours for just $69.
Don’t miss out on other fetching wearables at this budget retailer. Other finds include well-cut three-quarter-length trenchcoats($60 to $89), large-scale bags that give a heavy nod to Marc Jacobs and Balenciaga($39), plus a smart selection of office-friendly trouser shorts in plum, crisp white and inky black($49).
Not that anyone needs an extra incentive to comb through the bargoons at Winners, but here’s one for sure — a new department featuring über-coveted luxe labels from runways around the globe is launching next week at select Winners stores.
On Thurs., March 8, The Runway At Winners will showcase drool-inducing deals(up to 60 per cent off regular retail) at key fashionista hubs in Canada.
As per Winners policy, no specific names were released, but rumours are buzzing about pieces that would typically be more at home at Holt’s(think Stella McCartney, Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs). You’ll have to investigate in a hurry to find out what’s in stock.
Winners execs promise to please stylistas with nuggets from both American and European design royalty for the modern woman. Perhaps it’s wise to plan a sick day.
Where: 444 Yonge St. at College Street; 110 Bloor St. W., east of Avenue Road; 23 Brentcliffe Rd., at Eglinton; and 3090 Bathurst St., at Lawrence. See www.winners.cato look for other GTA locations that will carry The Runway At Winners.
