Women Supporting other Women with Montreal Designer Nisse

At Layover we are entering Fall/Winter new arrivals, and how exciting  is it to put away the summer garments and experiment with new fall pieces as the weather gets cooler both morning and nights. This falls designer we feature and carry at Layover is the wonderful Montreal based power house woman Nisse.

About Nisse:

After studying fashion and design at College LaSalle, the Canadian Designer Nargisse E. Akyuz launched her stylish and comfortable ready-to-wear line, entitled Nisse.
Since then, she always pays a particular attention to the active woman of today and the behaviours by which fashion is translated.
For her designs, she focuses on what appeals to woman today! What they will wear tomorrow… She attaches a great importance to costumer contact, the relation with her clientele is the first source of inspiration to create fascinating silhouettes.

Nisse Philosophy :

Nargisse draws inspiration from the modern woman, designing head-turning clothes that combine classic style with a dash of daring. The chic and feminine universe of nisse proposes an essential choice of garments, combining an impeccable tailoring and sexy femininity. Creations meant to instantly improve a wardrobe, from opulent cuts, cutting-edge blazers, pretty seductive dresses adorned with sumptuous fabric, the audacity of unexpected detailing and combinations deserve more than a quick glance.

Come by and fall in love with winter and dress only your best!!! @layoverboutique

The search for the Perfect Wallet is Over

Weekly Top Picks

 IMG_7978

Do you ever find that locating the perfect wallet is so hair pulling, teeth grinding and nails down a chalk board difficult? Well, that came to an end for me ever since I found the wonderful local brand Uppdoo. This brand continues to create an enjoyable shopping experience for their customer, when searching for functional leather goods.

After purchasing one of Uppdoo’s wallets the compliments were endless. The wallet not just serves as a luxury accessory but a place for respect for my money. The brand carries class and function, while the delicate fabric and structure reads handmade.

Uppdoo designs hand-crafted and accessory goods based in Toronto, Canada. Started in 2012 founder and designer Ricky Shi decided to create handbags and small accessories that reflected the world around us.

As I hold the leather in my hands, the delicate fabric screams quality and individual character, hence handmade. The design and craft reminds me of Parisian brand Hermes but minus the bank account dent, this brand makes it affordable to look expensive, feel expensive and carry your purse with confidence and whip out those cards with respect.

So come into Layover on Queen West to check out the latest collection of purses, wallets and so much more from Uppdoo.

 

 

#WHOMADEMYCLOTHES

FullSizeRender

A valid question we should all ask ourselves is, who made my clothes?

On April 24th, 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladash. From there a fashion revolution was created to show support to all those who make our clothes.

This past week thousands of social media enthusiasts have shown their support to the cause of #whomademyclothes by revealing labels off their backs.

At Layover, we take extra care in knowing the brands we sell. We think you should too.

We carry brands from all over the world specializing in quality fabrics and individual character. Montreal to Spain, you will find the brand that reflects our product research and knowledge. Layover understands the importance of supporting small business brands by eliminating mass production and focusing on economical, sustainable, and supporting workers rights.

By showing Layover’s support we feature one of our favorite partners Soleil Cashmere. Soleil Cashmere is based out of Montreal, Canada where they specialize in making garments out of high quality cashmere from Mangolia, famous for its soft yarn and texture. They also provide amazing products made of Pima cotton, cotton/Silk bland, silk/cashmere, cotton/cashmere, as well as 100% linen knitting sweater. A cashmere sweater is something every woman should have in their wardrobe, no matter what the weather may be.

Style inspiration: Kristen Stewart

This week’s style inspiration is Kristen Stewart.

Even though she seems not to care at all about what she wears, the “Twilight” star and the Woody Allen’s muse has involuntarily become a new fashion icon.

Her unique charm and feisty character was first spotted by the fashion industry legend Karl Lagerfeld who invited Stewart to be a face of Chanel. Kristen is taking now her role to the next level and will play the fashion house’s founder Coco Chanel in a short film set to debut at the fashion house’s Chanel Métiers d’Arts show, December 1 in Rome.

Although she has been known to kill it in couture on the red carpet, her everyday style is far more tomboy than fashion forward. Stewart is a crown princess of a grungy, androgynous look and this is what we love about her! During her latest appearance at TIFF she sported her trademark street style, combining an oversized pair of black trousers with loose grey cotton blouse. For her portrait photo shoot at film festival in Venice she chose a classic Chanel jacket with high waist shorts and white oxford shoes.

How to get the Kstew look? Pima cotton BOBI t-shirts and oxford F-troupe shoes are now available at our store!
