LG Fashion Week kicked off on Monday and of course, we were there to get a sneak peek at some of the Fall/Winter 2011 collections being shown this season! Grungy, dark, and oversized garments seemed to be a consistent trend in many of the collections and can be seen in just about all of the shows we attended. For example, Label's Fall/Winter 2011 show was full of leather, combat boots, and slightly oversized tops, dresses, and skirts. This collection is perfect for those of you who luv to rock a laid-back, carefree look.
This unkempt appearance can also be seen in Chloe comme Parris' Fall/Winter 2011 collection. However, the garments in this collection have much cleaner lines and silhouettes making the grunge look less harsh and masculine. Furthermore, the added touch of a high-heel creates more femininity to this alternative look.
Name not ringing a bell??? Well, maybe that's because she's a newbie to charlie!! Tara's a jewellery designer extraordinaire, now based in Nelson, BC (where she also owns a cute little shop!). Her pieces use a lot of reworked vintage, which you know is right up our alley!! Here's round one from the newbie :)
Is it Spring yet?!? I think we're all more then ready for it!! In the window this week we have two incredibly versatile dresses. Both can easily be layered up to enjoy now, but will also take you through those summer months when the heat is in full gear!
Sessun, Dorothy Parker Dress $327
Valerie Dumaine, Alice Dress $175 Harriet Grey, Chain Bracelet $18
OK, we've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is, the first half of our Sessun order has arrived!! Now, for the bad news....this will be our last season carrying Sessun, due to a sudden lack of Canadian distribution. Obviously, we're a little sad about this one, but their styles this season are incredible!! If you're a Sessun fan, get down here and eat it up while you can!!
We have been bombarded with amazing new Spring/Summer styles over the last couple weeks, so it's been a little tough keeping you fully updated on everything new in the shop. Here's a few more of the latest and greatest! To see everything, swing by!
