Fashion at the Silver Spoon

Experience the Silver Spoon Dinner with us!  Of course, heading out to Saskatoon’s premiere ladies’ night out, we were excited to see the fashion.  As with any Saskatoon event, ladies are wearing everything ranging from pants and blouse to a beautiful dress.  We love that – everyone showing their personal style.  

It always excites us to see women wearing cocktail dresses from era.  We had to take some time to admire!  Then it was on to the martini bar and shortly after, the free bar. 

We have to admit that we weren’t overly excited that Henry Winkler was the speaker.  As non-fans we could take it or leave it but still wanted to check out this great event.  We weren’t disappointed and the Fonz was a favorite part of the evening – a great story, message, quick wit, and a reminder to love your children!

Can’t wait for next year for everything that we love about the Silver Spoon Dinner – valuable door prizes, amazing silent auction items, martini bar, great food, charity, a famous speaker, and as always, the fashion.

A Pop of...Denim?

The classic denim shorts and tee.  Frankly, it still excites us.  Season after season, we see this classic outfit and it never gets old.  There is something about throwing on your shredded denim with a nostalgic concert tee that just feels chic.  But is it overdone?

This classic is now moving in every direction possible.  No matter how you wear your denim, it’s a go.  Rompers, dresses, denim on denim, a jacket or a vest.  Every brand, from Rag & Bone to Current/Elliott, has their version.  Denim has been taken to whole new level this season.  Canadian tuxedo is an understatement.  You used to save the look for the rodeo and now, that so-called “get-up” is in our weekly rotation.

Embrace this laid back season Saskatoon, and drench yourself in denim.

If this is fame...

We have been very lucky to work with CTV since opening our store, era style loft.  We have dressed the anchor of CTV Morning Live for the past couple of years and every now and then, we get the honour of doing a segment about what's new at era. 

We were excited just to see the era logo on TV let alone making a live appearance! We used to tape each episode just to see our logo go across the screen.  

Now we run into friends and they talk about seeing us on TV.  We're famous! We remember being so nervous for our first TV appearance in studio.  However, CTV keeps you feeling comfortable by keeping their studio in a time warp from the 80's.  Each segment varies with season but each experience remains the same, powdered coffee cream, a dodgy couch and a much aniticpated fondling by the camera guy (the best part). 

The segment we did today was about two of our favourite spring staples - the jean vest and the white blazer. 

A Peace Treaty

We fell in love with A Peace Treaty for the collections’ beauty – high fashion scarves and jewelry. We were sold on A Peace Treaty based on their final product alone.  The whole process that they go through to create their line is an added bonus. The fact that they are creating these products ethically, while utlizing techniques at risk of extinction created additional value.  

A Peace Treaty jewelry are limited edition pieces that complement the clothing at era.  The pieces can add a unique edge to a feminine silk or flirty floral.  Each collection is created seasonally, with exclusive pieces, offered in a small number of boutiques across Canada and worldwide.  

A Peace Treaty scarves are stunning, stand-alone pieces that will sit prominently in any fashionista’s closet.  Created in artisan workshops across the world, A Peace Treaty uses local methods for creating their scarves.  This process results in internationally influenced prints and colors.

Mixing ethics and high fashion can be a difficult feat.  We think that A Peace Treaty is leading the way!

Here is A Peace Treaty’s story: 

A PEACE TREATY IS AN EVOLVING COLLECTION AIMED AT CREATING ETHICALLY-PRODUCED, ARTISAN LEVEL ACCESSORIES AND APPAREL FOR THE LUXURY FASHION MARKETPLACE.

Born in 2008, as a personal pact between Farah Malik, a Pakistani Muslim, and Dana Arbib, a Libyan Jew, A PEACE TREATY creates employment for skilled artisans working in places of socio-political strife, effectively supporting their technique and craft while elevating their products to the level of high design for an exclusive and international fashion audience.

Inspired by the hand-crafting cultures of the Middle East, Asia, South America and Africa, A PEACE TREATY was conceived when Arbib and Malik met while living in Rome. The two discovered that they shared both a love of high fashion and a desire to increase awareness of ancient, disappearing crafting traditions. Intermingling Arbib’s strong background in graphic, textile and product design with Malik’s history of developing multimedia marketing campaigns for social justice and human rights, as well as her training in ancient Roman gold-smithing, they set about connecting discerning fashion connoisseurs with cache, boutique level artifacts from places typically seen only negatively through the media lens.

Each season, A PEACE TREATY travels to a particular region and seeks out local village artisans to re-define an accessory, designing limited edition pieces in style unique colorways. Each jewelry or scarf collection resuscitates ancient handmade textile and metalsmithing techniques that are at risk of extinction. Working with craftspeople in nine countries and injecting life and trade back into local economies, A PEACE TREATY employs artisans with above fair trade wages and invests in creating income generation opportunities for out-of-work artisans, disabled and widowed women. A PEACE TREATY artisan projects and partnerships are situated in Pakistan, India, Nepal, Turkey, Afghanistan, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and the US.
