3 Canadian Designer Collaborations We Love

Missed the highly coveted and quickly sold out Phillip Lim x Target designer collaboration? Here are a few more fabulous and Canadian collaborations to love:  

1. D.L. Eyewear x Spectacle
I've always admired Dan Levy's strong statement frames but quite honestly, had zero clue that he helmed his own eyewear label. Well he does and has recently released a limited edition collection of just 100 pairs of shades available in 17 different lens / frame combinations to choose from. I'm a fan of the matte black and honey tortoise and it's also a toss up between the wayfarer and cat-eye styles. Let's just say, by the time you figure out which are your fave, they'll probably be sold out. Shop online ASAP if you want in or head to Spectacle to get your prescription pair. Prices start at $165.

2. Pink Tartan x Tide
No, your household detergent has not forayed into the clothing business; Ms. Newport Mimran has just found a way to make it way easier to justify a splurge on her gorgeous fall collection as Pink Tartan unveils a capsule of dresses and separates that are perfectly safe to wash at home using Tide PODS, of course. With the additional cost of dry cleaning out of the way, feel free to splurge on something in leopard along with those neutrals and FYI, the weight and stretch in their washable fabric feels pretty dreamy. Visit their flagship in Yorkville to try on the full collection and visit regularly as Kim revealed to me in conversation that more pieces will likely be added in time. Look for the little Tide tags as proof that you're purchasing the washable wares and be sure to follow the recommended instructions carefully. Prices start at $275.

3. The Hudson's Bay Company x Jack Purcell for Converse
How can you not love the addition of the iconic Hudson's Bay Company point blanket to classic Converse kicks, really? I think the Helen Lo-Tops would look super sweet mixed with some plaid and denim though the HBC website suggests you may want to display them as a collectors item. As if. Available online at Prices starting at $120.
