Canadian designers are getting worldwide attention.
Canadian designers are killing it. Check out our 10 fall/winter 2014 faves.
Erin Kleinberg’s mission sounds simple: Create clothes that people
can’t live without. “I’ve seen the closets of the chicest tastemakers
in the world,” says the designer and co-founder of The Coveteur, “and I love that they [all] have a rack
of clothes they wear constantly: pieces that are day-to-night, supercomfortable and luxe.” Kleinberg’s fall/winter 2014 collection—all produced in Toronto—fits that lofty bill: slouchy-chic cardigans, oversized tees and lots of plaid. “My
husband has so many old plaids from camp that I’ve stolen from him.
I’m obsessed.” Beyoncé recently requested this season’s varnishedsequin top and matching skirt, and Lena Dunham—a friend and “huge inspiration” to Kleinberg—posted an Insta pic of herself wearing the striped Twiggy coat. The A-list may be beckoning, but Kleinberg says she isn’t tempted to decamp. “The vibe in Toronto is so chill and cool. It’s like the West Coast on the East Coast—the best of both worlds. I love that I can live here and still sell
my brand on a global scale.” h
