New labels at Hudson’s Bay
In little more than a year and a half, budding menswear label WIL Studios has caught the eye of fashionistas, singer Daniel Caesar and now Hudson’s Bay.
The retailer says it will showcase the company along with 11 new and established homegrown talents at a pop-up showcase this September curated by Toronto-based The Collections.
Rahul Madan of WIL Studios says it’s a dream come true for his young brand, which he formed in early 2017 with university pal Eric Richards. The duo have found early success in securing the support of Caesar, who wore their clothes on tour and in a TV appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The pop-up launches Sept. 4 at five locations across the country, including two stores in Toronto, and one each in Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary. All five stores will feature Mikhael Kale, Pedram, S.P. Badu, WIL Studios, WRKDEPT, Hilary MacMillan and Sid Neigum.
The Vancouver and Toronto location will also include Atelier Guarin, Markoo and accessories by Biko and Cuchara.
