Black Daffodil

Black DaffodilBlack Daffodil brings a much-needed sartorial spark to the Junction.

The pink-and-black boutique was opened by Cythia Rea in September to house her eponymous Black Daffodil collection along with an impressive number of Canadian brands. I had only heard of a couple, but found a few Toronto designers worth checking out.

Black DaffodilNaMoDa's handpainted frocks ($139) have a nice DIY feel to them without feeling sloppy, and I definitely coveted the scarves splattered with mauve and teal paint ($35).

Black DaffodilI also loved Baggage's purses made from recycled leather ($240). The simple shapes and buttery leather made the pricetag worth it for a lot of years of use.

Black DaffodilThere were some other great foundation pieces from Hypercube, including a slouchy gray tie-neck ballet top with chains draped from the neck ($69) and a white top with a drawstring neck also adorned with heavy links ($98).

(A caveat: the store also stocks a large number of synthetic pieces--especially from the Azure line--made from polyester and wool blends and in patterns that look really cheap. The store's best pieces are patternless and made from cotton, ensuring they look classy rather than cheesy. Stick with those!)

Black DaffodilThe store also stocks some vintage-inspired pieces and purses that would warm the tattooed heart of any rockabilly chick, including a Crybaby-esque number by LA brand Bettie Page ($249).

For those who want a more modern piece for night-time adventuring, there's a slinky brown tunic sprinkled with delicate chain from Adala ($99), or Pecas' sequined gold tank ($79).

There may not be many somewhat decent clothing stores in the Junction, but now there's one more.
