Cashmere Lingerie to Oversized Knits: Canadian Women Who Keep Us Warm

Vibrant palettes, sheer and delicate fabrics, high-impact embellishment: it would be nice if we could get excited about spring fashion trends, but with February forecasts being bitterly cold and March hovering around zero temperatures, the idea of pastels and denim jackets is, well, FORGETABOUTIT! Sorry.

In an effort to stay positive (and god help us, warm!) we’re going to focus our attention instead on wonderful Canadian women who make cute, sexy (cashmere can be sexy!) but tough apparel that is made for THIS.
