One of a Kind Show: Top Picks - Fashion

December 4, 2012 | Alex

Today, I thought I'd highlight my favorite clothing, jewelry and accessories from Toronto's One of a Kind Show. Since I'm far from an authority on fashion, I'll keep this brief. I must have been feeling monochromatic when I was wandering the booths this weekend, because almost all of the items I gravitated towards were lacking in the color department. Though they certainly make up for it in texture, pattern and shape.

The handbags were especially lovely. I had to call on all my will power to keep from buying up waxed canvas bags by Hoi Bo and Bookhou, and C comme Ca's felt and leather creations. And it must be said that photographs do not do justice to String Theory's scarfs and shawls. The alpaca/cotton blend feels so amazing smooth between your fingers-- but incredibly dense at the same time (in a good, toasty warm way!)
