This Week in Fashion: Sauvage and Dealuxe pop-up, Brooks Brothers Toronto expands, a back alley Cinco de Mayo sale and TFI celebrates 25 Years

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.


Jaya Kahlon has just launched her pop-up shop, Sauvage on Queen West. The new store is set in the Burroughes Building and features an eclectic mix of contemporary accessories gathered from fashion capitals around the world. Kahlon herself has claimed that she created Sauvage as a space that offers what Toronto has yet to: a focus on labels and designs that are unique, fashion-forward, and underrepresented in the city.

It's finally come! After much anticipation, Brooks Brothers is about to open two new locations in Toronto in May. The luxurious brand, which has been housed on Bay Street in the Financial District for the last two years, is now growing to add a new location in Bayview Village, as well as a specialized Flatiron Shop at 262 Bloor Street West.

Canadian powerhouse line Roots, has recently partnered with online giant Dealuxe to create an exclusive line of fine leather bags that are on sale now. The bags, which range from satchels to oversized totes, are available in a variety of bright, summery colours that are great for the season. All the contemporary style of Dealuxe, and all the quality and craftsmanship of Roots. Oh, and Dealuxe will be hosting a pop-up shop this weekend at 484 Eglinton West.


While not taking place in the upcoming week, Toronto-based designer Cherith.b, is about to launch her pop-up boutique and fashion show on Saturday, May 12th at Twist Gallery. The event will not only be the designer's debut show, but it will also support Cancer Research and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada as a benefit.

Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) is celebrating 25 years of their love of...well, fashion. The non-profit organization has been integral in the development and preservation of Canadian designers and budding artists since 1987. They'll be celebrating their years of service on May 3rd with a glamourous Fashion Gala at the ROM.

69 Vintage, Ashley Rowe, Collective Bleach Denim, and The Code Boutique will be hosting The Collective Pop-up from May 3rd to 6th at 198 Walnut Avenue. Curated by Ashley Rowe, the Pop-up will feature new stock, samples and big discounts from all four collaborators.

In celebration of the upcoming Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo, Chosen Vintage will be holding a back alley shopping event on May 5th on Givins behind their 960 Queen Street West location. Partnering with vintage shops Penny Arcade and Silver Falls, nearly all the inventory will be priced between $5 and $20.
