Never have we longed more for cool winds. Until now.
Next month Smythe is launching two tribute blazers that will take starting position in our fall trousseau. Decked out in brass buttons and three-quarter sleeves, a portion of proceeds from The Warbler (inspired by Glee’s dapper Dalton Academy boys) will go to anti-bullying initiatives.
In September, Smythe’s classic Hourglass Tuxedo is being jeujed in honor of Holt Renfrew’s 175th birthday. The lining of each numbered jacket will feature the embroidered message ‘wear your heart on your sleeve and history on your back’ in Holt’s signature fuchsia.
Bring on the shivers. —Marianne Wisenthal

What's a Canadian mom without a great coat? Freezing, that's what.
But if you don't want to blow your budget on a coat you'll wear for one season, check out this unique M Coat from Haute Mama. Meant to be worn three ways, it's a maternity coat, a new mom coat with a baby carrier, and a OMG-I-fit-back-into-my-regular-clothes coat.
Now you're ready for anything! (Except maybe twins.)
