Crushing on Spring Jackets from The Narwhal Boutique
From left to right: IRO Biker Jacket, Helmut Lang Blue Patent Leather and Jacquard blazer, 10 Crosby Derek Lam Drop Shoulder Jacket Last week, I dropped by The Narwhal Boutique for the first time to snap some shots of lust-worthy pieces for Village Living Magazine’s print issue next month. I was quite overwhelmed (in a really positive way) by all the amazing labels they carry- this shopping spot is truly a hidden gem in Rosedale. The atmosphere was reminiscent of the little Parisian boutiques I frequented in Montmartre when I was in Paris last spring. With highly coveted contemporary brands like Mara Hoffman, Rag and Bone, TIBI and ACNE on the racks just to name a few – I may have discovered my new favourite retail therapy destination in Toronto. Spring is just around the corner and I’m sure you’re on a hunt for the perfect jacket so I thought I’d share some of my picks from The Narwhal. It was honestly a challenge to narrow down my selection to three pieces – trust me, there were a ton to choose from, you MUST visit the store to see for yourself. But my eyes were set on the IRO biker jacket, the stunning cobalt blue Helmut Lang jacket and the always on-trend military jacket by Derek Lam. When I was eyeing the IRO jacket, the super nice co-owner of the charming shop, Marisa told me that they are literally flying off the racks so I suggest you check out the goods asap! And don’t you fret if you’re not from the area, they will launch an online shop very soon!
