This Week in Fashion: Stussy and Marshalls open new locations, LOFT Mobile Style Closet, YYZ Fashion Week Closing Party, and sample sales galore
Just last week, Stussy opened up their bigger, better shop at 1000 Queen Street West, a warehouse-esque spot on the corner featuring high ceilings, minimal white walls and gigantic windows. All local "hypebeasts" are welcome to bask in the glory that is graphic tees, down-filled vests, and - of course - a plethora of snapbacks, trucker hats, and beanies.
Also last week, Marshalls' downtown location (finally) opened at John and Richmond. The massive 29,000 square-foot space is essentially a designer version of Winners - the products in stock at any given moment are rather difficult to pinpoint, so you'll just have to head down yourself for a hunt that (hopefully) turns up some sweet finds.
In preparation (or celebration) of the first Canadian LOFT location to at Yorkdale later this year, a living and breathing LOFT Mobile Style Closet will make its way through the city this Friday (October 26). They'll be showcasing their 2012 Holiday collection, offering the first 25 guests a surprise, and holding a raffle for the entire contents of the closet! Find it around the Eaton Centre from 11 am until 1 pm, in the Financial District from 1:30 pm until 3 pm, and in Yorkville from 3:30 pm until 5:30 pm.
As Fashion Week comes to an end, leave it to YYZ Living Magazine to throw an awesome closing party at Maison Mercer (15 Mercer St) this Friday (October 26). While you get your drink on in your fancy getup, Intermix will also be showing their spring/summer 2013 collection at 11 pm. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
