Dalston Grey

Posted by Briony / Posted on September 29, 2011

Dalston GreyDalston Grey marks Dundas West's ongoing ascendancy in the local fashion scene. The vintage store (with a few new pieces here and there) is filled with astoundingly budget-friendly pieces sure to keep the strip's wallet-minding masses happy.

Dalston GreyOnce the shop-within-a-shop (Lost & Found in Bloordale's Ping Pong), Leah Gust's new brick-and-mortar store now stands on its own.

Dalston GreyThe vintage is mainly Value Village-style seventies, eighties and nineties pieces geared toward current fashions, so those looking for an of-the-moment animal print piece or sleeveless knit vest are in luck.

Dalston GreyOther noteworthy finds include leopard-print shorts ($65), a white leather tank ($47), a ribbed cream bodysuit ($30), and enough silk blouses to stock the closets of every on-trend individual for a while to come, from lilac t-shirt cuts to coral button-ups.

Dalston GreyAccessories are on the mark, too, with a Blossom-tastic floral canvas tote ($40), a black-and-gold ceramic choker ($25), skinny belts ($10 to $15) and gray leather brogues ($40). Menfolk are well-served by hearty woolen cardis ($35), cute tees (a steal at $10), soft flannel shirts (around $20), and jaunty windbreakers ($25 or so). Dudes looking for a new man-purse (don't lie) should snap up the butter-soft leather portfolio for $55.

Dalston GreyThe contemporary clothes, however, manage to outshine the budget finds, even if the price-point is considerably higher than you throwing down a ten-spot for a tee. Lovely stiff Raleigh denim rings in at $275, but the true prize is the Parisian line, Gat Rimon. It's body-con at its best. Scuba-tight trousers ($220) and skirts, schoolgirl dresses ($204), slouchy silk tops in rainbow brights ($139), and remarkable details like thick navy rope belts truly set the brand apart.

Hopefully Dalston Grey, too, can continue to set itself apart as Dundas West takes off.

I went in here with a friend and it took us a minute to figure out if the clothes were new or vintage. Beautifully curated and the prices seemed low. Will be back without groceries!

We're at 1317 Dundas St W, just west of Dovercourt on the south side.

This store is a great addition to the neighbourhood. Everything in the store is well thought out and meticulously chosen, but the prices are nice and low, making it very accessible. Pairs nicely with brunch at Brockton General.
