This Week in Fashion: Drake General Store opens new location, Absolutely Vintage, Philip Sparks Open Factory
Last week, The Drake General Store opened the doors to its new Yonge & Eglinton location (2607 Yonge St). The larger space carries odds and ends that make perfect gifts (for Mother's Day, perhaps?), including metallic piggy banks ($260) and ceramic sparrow mugs ($38). The well-known (and well adored) retailer now has three locations in distinct neighbourhoods, ready to offer quirky clothing and curiosities.
Hundreds of looks swept and sashayed past me all week, all with a very different response to the theme. Though many of these don't fit under similar categories, here are my picks for the top 10 looks from |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week based on creativity and construction.
Next Monday (May 6), an exclusive t-shirt collection designed by Jeremy Laing with much-loved Toronto label Arts & Crafts is set to launch online and at two Toronto Hudson's Bay locations (44 Bloor St E and 176 Yonge St). Five artists - Derek Sullivan, Jessica Eaton, Sojourner Truth Parsons, Niall McClelland, and Jason McLean - created images inspired by musicians including Broken Social Scene and Timber Timbre, which were then translated into a printable design. Retailing for $75, the t-shirts' profits will be donated to MusiCounts, an organization dedicated to providing music programs to all children in Canada.

Long before West Queen West became the epicentre of boutique shopping in Toronto, Yorkville reigned supreme. It was where to go to buy that brand new suit, must-have handbag or coveted pair of shoes. Today, all of those things can still be found here but with an influx of small, independent boutiques the neighbourhood has re-established itself as a veritable shopping destination - even if it's a bit on the pricey side.
