Richmond Hill Post - - Front Page -

A WIN­NER HOI BO, 15 TRIN­ITY ST., $530 “This re­ally makes a state­ment. I love the fact that it hugs your body. It’s kan­ga­roo leather — very tough and very sump­tu­ous at the same time. The lux­ury!”

B Pop of colour

RAG & BONE AT HOLT REN­FREW, 50 BLOOR ST. W., $645 “This is a beau­ti­ful colour — almost a per­sim­mon. The leather is very soft to the touch. I love the fact that this shoul­der strap has all th­ese de­tails.”

C Ca­sual af­fair

TORY BURCH AT DAVIDS, BAYVIEW VIL­LAGE, $275 “The sac bag is a clas­sic. I love th­ese tas­sels. It’s sweet; it’s very up­beat.”

D An­i­mal flavour

WISH­LIST YYZ, 629 MT. PLEAS­ANT RD., $69 “We love our af­ford­able bags. It doesn’t take it­self too se­ri­ously. It’s a fun lit­tle punc­tu­a­tion mark.”

E Retro–mod­ern mar­riage

MARC BY MARC JA­COBS AT HUD­SON’S BAY, YORK­DALE SHOP­PING CEN­TRE, $285 “This is so much fun — love the daz­zle! There’s a very mod­ern feel to it, done in a very retro way. This would make a com­plete fash­ion state­ment.”

F Slip of a thing

FILIPPA K AT GRAV­I­TY­POPE, 1010 QUEEN ST. W., $139 “This is a won­der­ful lit­tle pony skin en­ve­lope that you could put a lit­tle comb, keys, lip­stick, cell­phone and a credit card into. That’s all you need in life!”

G Body ar­mour

DAN­NIJO AT HOLT REN­FREW, 50 BLOOR ST. W. $1,195 “Love love love the chain mail on the side of this bag. It’s time­less. It’s not cheap but, hey, if you want to spend this kind of money, this oozes luxe!”

H El­e­gant in­no­va­tion

ALEXAN­DER MCQUEEN AT 119 CORBO, 119 YORKVILLE AVE., $1,850 “What can you say about any­thing McQueen? Beau­ti­ful bot­tle green — great colour com­bi­na­tion for the win­ter. It’s el­e­gant; it’s edgy. I love the clo­sure.”

I Out­side of the box

MACK­AGE AT ZANE, 124 CUM­BER­LAND ST., $295 “I am very im­pressed with this bag — so well con­structed with won­der­ful hard­ware. The fact that this is Cana­dian does my heart es­pe­cially good.”

J Every­day ef­fort­less

ROOTS, VAUGHAN MILLS, $238 “Roots bags are just great. They’re no-non­sense. It’s very prac­ti­cal, and the leather is re­ally af­ford­able.”

JEANNE BEKER Post City’s fash­ion colum­nist and host of Fash­ionTele­vi­sionChan­nel is one of Canada’s most trusted au­thor­i­ties on style and fash­ion, cov­er­ing the in­dus­try for more than 25 years.
