It was an absolute pleasure, as always, shooting our Fall 2016 collection with Lindsay of Boketto Photography. We were lucky enough to shoot at a friends beautiful Estate farmhouse in East Kelowna - The property featured rolling grass hills, the dreamiest wrap around porch and an authentic teepee that had us channeling our inner spirit animal (which is Whiskey of course). The weather was beautiful and sunny but the air was crisp and filled with smells of Autumn. We layered ourselves in chunky knits, plaids and classic wool jackets — all which are staples for heading into this season.
The inspiration for this shoot was a neutral colour palate, mixing textures and fabrics. We are still a huge supporter of denim on denim, especially layered with a sweater or jacket to break up all the awesomeness. Speaking of denim, we have been loving all the new darker washes and new fits that have been arriving at the store daily - distressed, clean, raw, we love it all! The best thing to pair with your favourite denim is a cozy knit which we currently have an endless selection of. Wool and cotton blends are a personal favourite of ours as they keep you warm without itching your skin.
Another look we are feeling is the comfortable yet fashionable athletic look that is acceptable to leave the house in. A big thank you to Zanerobe, Fairplay & OurCaste for knocking it out of the park on this one. Sweatpants and hoodies have never looked so good.
Mens and ladies plaids are absolutely a staple piece for heading out to experience all that fall has to offer. We have everything from heritage classics by Penfield and Levis to delicate soft prints by Rails and Gentle Fawn that are suitable for a night out.
Statement hats, boots & sunnies are the key pieces to finishing any look. Whether you’re keeping it casual with chucks or dressing it up with Hudson (these are just a few faves among many other brands). Footwear is truly the foundation (literally) to any great outfit. An easy way to complete your outfit is tossing on our current favourite Brixton hat - fedora, beanie, ball cap, we don’t discriminate they’re all great. This is also the most clever way to cover up any bad hair day.
Now that we have shared our excitement for the coming season; We hope this post has gotten you inspired to stay looking cozy but put together this fall!
