2 way cardi

From Toronto designer Brenda Beddome, this Two Way Cardigan is such a hit that Brenda does a version every season.  This year it comes in a heathered super soft knit that’s lightweight and cozy.  It can be worn closed with the zip at the shoulder or open and drapey.  Not all sizes in all colours are left, so act fast if you want to add one of these to your closet!

Gentle Fawn was a new line for us this season and a Kensington location exclusive. Based out of Vancouver this line was founded ten years ago by Daniel and Carla Hogg.  Here are two styles on sale now – The Heritage Sweater (left) and the Marble Sweater (right). Shop more Gentle Fawn styles here.


Sophie sweater

Mandala Design is known for modern fashion with a vintage vibe and this Sophie sweater is a perfect example of that.  This style reminds me of something Audrey Hepburn would have worn with capri pants, but it looks totally “today” at the same time!  Shop Sophie here online (and on sale!).


The Flor Cardigan by Mandala Design is a versatile and soft layering piece that will go with most everything in your wardrobe.  Shop Flor online here (on sale too!) and all Mandala Design here.

Thanks for tuning in for this special selection of sweaters by Canadian designers!  I hope you find something to keep you cozy in style through till March!
