This Week in Fashion: Dan Levy eyewear brand, The Sassy Little Craft Show, Vitaly Design Pop-Up
This Week in Fashion rounds up the week's style news, store openings and closings, pop-up shops, sales and upcoming fashion and design events in Toronto. Find it here every Wednesday morning.
Last week, MTV personality Dan Levy launched his own line of fashion-forward frames: D.L. Eyewear. Notorious for rocking the quirkiest of glasses, Dan wanted to fill a gap in the market between high-end and high-street price points. The five styles, all thick-framed with swanky silhouettes, run for $95 each and are available online, at The Narwhal or Jonathan + Olivia.
The Art of Reuse, Toronto's response to the phenomenon of fashion-oriented thrift shopping, has officially launched an online store. Handpicked (and tremendously affordable) clothing and housewares are now available for purchase from your swivelling computer chair, including a python printed tunic ($70) and a strangely shaped mug ($25).
If you're into bargains, mosey on over to Percy Street's Rummage Sale this Sunday (July 7). From 10 am until 5 pm, sift through historic finds at The Percy Bed & Breakfast (6 Percy St) including antique kitchenware, clothing, and jewellery. Plus, a portion of proceeds will go to the street cats shelter program at the Toronto Humane Society, so your new treasures can help more than just yourself.
Spend your Sunday (July 7) from 2 pm until 8 pm at the summer edition of The Sassy Little Craft Show, an event that "ain't your Granny's church basement!" The Central (603 Markham St) will be filled to the brim with food, drink, good company, and most importantly: the work of indie artisans. Admission is free, so stop by and support local!
Caravan Found Objects - a new sister store to Gypsy Found Objects - is opening next Wednesday (July 10) at 812 St. Clair Avenue West. It'll be the go-to home décor spot for all your shabby chic dreams, teeming with antique linens, furnishings, silver, china, and more. They'll also have a selection of handpicked and reclaimed vintage clothing - there's definitely something quaint and quirky for everyone!
Until July 9, Vitaly Design is hosting a second pop-up shop at Oz Studios (134 Ossington Ave). Like the last time around, there'll be DJs spinning and caterers catering, not to mention a slew of Toronto brands like Keyway and Felony Case. Vitaly Design's latest collection will also be up for grabs, alongside samples marked at up to 75% off.
