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.

New In – D’deMOO coats

D’deMOO is a Korean brand created and managed by Park Choonmoon, a Korean fashion designer. Park was born in Kimje, a small town in South Korea. Starting form early childhood, she was fascinated by transformative and reflective nature of clothing. When her family moved to Seoul, she attended Honk-Ik University where she obtained a degree in Industrial Design. She also studied fashion design at Kookje Fashion School. Her industrial design roots are well visible in her fashion projects. She’s been a part of Korean fashion avant-garde since 1988. She opened her first front store in 1988 in Korea and expanded quickly into other Asian markets. Park has won numerous prizes including Presidential Awards. Most recently, she was voted one of the most influential designers of 2010. She has shown her collections in Korea, Japan and France, and has been invited to participate in other significant shows worldwide.

We are proud to announce that we carry few of Park’s winter collection’s designs including cashmere wool coats, reversible coats and double layer leather coats.
