Brian Richards Offers Up To Four GTA-Designed Parts You’ll Want For Fall

Brian A. Richards has had a life-long mission to promote the country’s talented designers at home and abroad throughout his glamorous work history as a famous fashion show producer, coveted stylist, and as one of Toronto’s best dressed citizens (their sunglasses and hat collection – legendary).

“From a geographical point of view, Canadian designers are not affected by trends, inspired by the literal four seasons; it’s safe to say that the show is all the rage here in Canada, ”says Richards. “Toronto itself is producing so many great and inspiring designs because we are a culturally diverse city. When it comes to fashion, shopping locally not only supports our national economy, but what better way is there to represent a city that you are proud to be? ”

After the pandemic, we all re-learn to dress for the outside world; Here, Richards recommends four simple GTA-designed stunners that are easy for anyone to use and will add elegance to any fall outfit, whether you’re ready for brunch or getting ready for your first vacation.

Tank, Spencer Badu

“Spencer Badu designs her unisex collections in Toronto, producing functional unisex clothing for more monochrome fall looks. In particular, I love Spencer’s take on the basics, like her deceptively simple black tank top. Breathable and comfortable in complex cuts, this tank top is the perfect indoor surprise, worn under a fall jacket or over a clean white shirt – add an effortless touch to your fall silhouette with a tank top not so basic. “

Socks, Kotn

“Headquartered in Toronto and a certified B Corporation, Kotn sources its fabric sustainably in Egypt. Working directly with small farmers in the communities, Kotn donates a portion of his earnings to finance and build schools in the Nile Delta and Faiyum. So with each sale, you know that you are contributing to sustainable practices and a good cause overall. Kotn designs the perfect tracksuit, but I especially enjoy his comfortable socks in enviable neutral colors, perfect to pair with your favorite fall shoe. “

Marcos, Show

“Fall is a great opportunity to change frames. Whether it’s prescription glasses or shades, the Queen Street West flagship offers something for every face. My personal must-haves are Rushton Rd. Spectacle t & k own brand frames. Light as a feather and durable, these frames will be your new go-to, highlighting each of your fall looks with ease, whether in town or for brunch. ”

Chain, Vitaly

“This Toronto brand designs daring unisex accessories ranging from rings to bracelets. Personally, I love their simple flower basket weave chain; It is an iconic and timeless piece, which goes very well with a casual fit or formal wear. At a reasonable price, Vitaly offers many quality options, from my basic chain to more adventurous statements. Whatever style you choose, a Vitaly piece will instantly enhance your favorite looks this fall. ”
