Mjölk

Mjölk is a beautiful shop in Toronto owned by John Baker and Juli Daoust.  they live in an apartment above the shop, which is housed in a Victorian building that has been wonderfully renovated, and recently featured in Dwell.

Located in the Junction, our gallery makes its home in a white Victorian building with a modern interior by local architect firm Studio Junction. Mjölk is both a gallery who exhibits work by both arists and artisans from Scandianvia and Japan, and also a lifestyle store; we look to our everyday life to find inspiration for the products we carry. Our smaller products can be used without thought, or quietly admired. In our eyes just the simple satisfaction of functionality and durability, is all you need for a successful product, but when you can derive beauty from the uttermost simplistic tools, then you have something special.

here are some shots of both their apartment and shop. images are c/o Dwell and Mjölk

Horses Atelier

Horses Atelier is a Toronto based fashion line from designers Heidi Sopinka and Claudia Dey who are inspired by “Parisian chic and 1970s jet-set.” they like making easy to wear dresses that roll up into a travel bag and slip over your head. they’re currently stocked in a few places in Canada & the US, and will hopefully soon open an online shop. i’m really enamoured by their S/S13 collection – especially that white caftan number (which you can see in the second picture). here are some of my favourite shots from their summer and fall collections, both of which are viewable on their website.
