MADE IN THE SUEDE

“I love the whip­stitch­ing. I love the colour, that neu­tral dove grey. It’s flirty, sexy, sassy. Look­ing for a suede state­ment? This is the way to go.” In a pre­vi­ous life, suede had some­thing of a one-note kind of look. But now, avail­able in a rain­bow of hues, suede is all grown-up and ready to tango into your wardrobe. Here are Jeanne’s top pieces to storm around town in this fall. “How much do we love vin­tage cloth­ing? When it’s right, it’s so right! This is just a cool to­bacco brown that would go with any­thing.” “MaxMara does such beau­ti­ful things. Clean lines, the suede is sump­tu­ous. It looks like a lit­tle jacket Au­drey Hep­burn would have worn.” “A blush pink moto jacket for fall speaks to a kind of lux­ury, to girl­ish fem­i­nin­ity but done in an ir­rev­er­ent way. Su­per mod­ern.” “You’ve gotta love the qual­ity of faux suede that’s com­ing out now. This looks ex­pen­sive. It’s a great al­ter­na­tive to real suede.” JEANNE BEKER – One of Canada’s most trusted au­thor­i­ties on style and fash­ion, Jeanne has cov­ered the in­dus­try for more than 30 years. Now watch her in her cur­rent style ed­i­tor role on TSC’s Style Mat­ters with Jeanne Beker. “This is just great. Such an op­ti­mistic colour. There’s some­thing re­ally retro about these han­dles. You wanna put pop­corn in this and take it to the movies!” “Elle from Zvelle is just such a re­mark­able shoe de­signer. These have al­most an S& M thing go­ing on in a fun way.”
