MADE IN THE SUEDE

Jeanne Beker on fall’s swankiest look

Village Post - - Contents -

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.

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.

On the fringe REWIND COU­TURE, 577 MT. PLEAS­ANT RD., $450 “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.” ’50s vibe GYPSY FOUND OB­JECTS, 762 ST. CLAIR AVE. W., $185 “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.”

At first blush ALLSAINTS, YORKDALE SHOP­PING CEN­TRE, $890 “A blush pink moto jacket for fall speaks to a kind of lux­ury, to girl­ish fem­i­nin­ity but done in an ir­rev­er­ent way. Su­per mod­ern.” Trompe l’oeil CLOAKROOM, 1177 YONGE ST., $118 “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.”

See­ing cir­cles TNT, 388 EGLIN­TON AVE. W., $795 “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!”

A hot topic AN­DREWS, BAYVIEW VIL­LAGE, $950 “MaxMara does such beau­ti­ful things. Clean lines, the suede is sump­tu­ous. It looks like a lit­tle jacket Au­drey Hep­burn would have worn.”

Made for walkin’ CLOAKROOM, 1177 YONGE ST., $260 “They've got a ’70s vibe to them … a great chunky heel. These boots have an air of el­e­gant ease!”

A strap­ping choice ZVELLE, YORKDALE SHOP­PING CEN­TRE, $535 “Elle from Zvelle is just such a re­mark­able shoe de­signer. These have al­most an S & M thing go­ing on in a fun way.”
