Valerie Dumaine, Spring 2007
One of the shining stars of the Montreal indie fashion industry has just dropped off her Spring 07 collection at HQ. As usual, we are falling in love all over again.
This collection focuses on simple yet refined fabrics & flattering cuts. These are the kind of items that slip seamlessly into your existing wardrobe and somehow creep into your favorites pile, almost never hitting the closet again because they are on on such heavy rotation between wearing and washing.
Just in time for this weekends art exhibitions, as always the boutique is open, so come on down and try on a couple of pieces and start dreaming of the warm weather again.
This top is the perfect summer layering piece. It looks great thrown over the tights as shown, but what about belted and with a pair of jeans? Or flowing over a pair of tailored shorts with heels? Heck you could even throw it over a t-shirt or blouse when you need to be a little cozier, talk about versatile!
Nice, simple, black tailored shorts, a wardrobe staple for this summer.
Ka-bamm, a red dress with a sweet and charming cut. I like the idea of wearing red in a totally non-vampy way. Retro yet still sleek. Trade the self fabric belt for a leather one for a different look.
A beautiful delicate blouse that goes with everything. I believe we also have this in black. It looks so soft and wispy, no doubt this top makes you feel like the most beautiful girl in the world!
