Images from our Autumn/Winter 2011 collection was featured on We Are Selecters. I am an avid fan of their website and magazine and we were delighted to be featured.
In case you haven’t heard of We Are Selecters here is a little more about their projects.
WE ARE SELECTERS is born as a project in 2010,… A group of professionals related with fashion, music, design, photography, and art…we gathered and reaffirmed Renomade (2009), a european fashion showroom that works from Spain. Soon we have developed a special way of working..with freshness, closeness and having a friendly relationship with the labels with whom we work with…Which makes us unique. We participate in new projects with fashion and music magazines…within a powerful market conformed with and by more and more labels…we wanted to take a step further…and we chose the name WE ARE SELECTERS, … that is what we are. And all that we have learned is devoted to this personal project, this is a restitution to ourselves, towards our individuality,…and it will grow with our ideas about art, society, fashion, music and life style.
It has been refreshing to see that there are places in this world where industry does not have a strict control over the local scenes. In places such as Bangkok, Jakarta, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Tokio, London … we found young designers and brands capable of selling their creations without having to open their own store. We travel, find and select products for our online shop and we also produce our own collections, … and this makes us happy.
While refining the project, we noticed that people like to look and to show their individuality and thought that we could contribute with something new, …. To create a web with real models, individual perceptions of interpreting clothes. And this is why we appreciate that you collaborate with us, that is your contribution to this project. To establish a direct connection between you and those who create.
“WE ARE SELECTERS & YOU ARE SELECTERS”
Still Life August 30, 2011
We were so happy to have Toronto’s Muttonhead Collective arrive in time to coincide with this past weekend’s Still Life For Her store launch! Muttonhead brings sisters Mel and Meg Sinclair together with friend Paige Cowan resulting in a refreshingly new brand with the strength and heart of a classic, quality-focussed heritage line. All garments are designed and manufactured in Toronto - as manufacturing locally allows Muttonhead to fully control quality and to guarantee sweatshop free, fair trade and ethical practices. Each collection incorporates natural and sustainable fibres such as recycled hemp, bamboo, organic cotton, merino wool and tencel and utilizes many recycled details such as leather, denim and velvet.
Branded and marketed as a quality, rugged, unisex brand Muttonhead debuts on the women’s side at Still Life For Her today appealing to the strong, adventurous west coast girl who appreciates quality, detail and strong production.Muttonhead supports a lifestyle based on sustainability and responsible consumerism and a return to locally crafted and hand-made. Their movement towards sustainable garments that their consumers can be proud to wear incorporates natural fibres into every garment with the future goal of making the entire brand 100% compostable. Essentially, Muttonhead Collective is manufacturing clothing that adapts to the always-changing, modern environment and lifestyle: it’s simple.
A line of clothing we are proud to finally stock at Still Life, Muttonhead Collective Autumn 2011 is a very strong collection from the young Canadian line. With basic merino wool cropped tees, leather-pocketed organic cotton/hemp long sleeves,stretch cotton with recycled leather breeches and the strongest organic cotton/hemp trouser we’ve ever seen is looking very prepared for a west coast autumn. Also available are a variety of quality accessories including recycled fibre change/card pouches and organic cotton/hemp rucksacks. Muttonhead Collective has been making a lot of waves in the retail fashion game with only a handful of shops internationally stocking the line - come by the new Still Life For Her (550 Johnson Street) and see what Muttonhead is all about.
OUTTAKES: f/w 11 outtakes…. down in onsie town.
For Fall/Winter 2011, designer Matt Robinson of Klaxon Howl collaborated with the Hudson’s Bay Company on a much more polished range of pieces including a Grey 8 Point vest and jacket, as well as a Hudson’s Bay backpack (my personal favourite) and duffel bag. The collection is to be included in the HBC’s latest contemporary fashion venture “The White Space”.
