Shopping Bag


National Post | Eat, Drink, Shop Toronto


SHOP  As if lower Ossington weren’t already enough of a destination, Canadian designer Philip Sparks, tony label haunt Jonathan + Olivia and the strip’s slew of curated vintage shops welcomed a well-dressed new neighbour this week: Gravity Pope. The West Coast destination — with stores alredy in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver — is a frequent online destination for hard-to-find, in-the-know mens and women’s (and children’s) clothing and footwear brands. One such label is Mr. Hare, the line of artisan men’s shoes made in Tuscany to the specification of designer Marc Hare’s British lasts. Guys will also find knit Rag & Bone ties and, for scents, Mad et Len’s artisan perfume. The shop is a more recherché A.P.C. —the breadth of Zero Maria Cornejo, sack dresses of Christian Wijnants and more outrageous colours in Chie Mihara’s seasonal collections that are rarely stocked by the city’s more conservative shoe retailers. 1010 Queen St. W., N.A.
