9 awesome finds from Inland Fall 2018

Canadian fashion pop-up featuring dozens of designers is back this weekend


Inland, a Canadian fashion pop-up, is back for another season September 21 and 22 at QRC West (134 Peter, at Richmond), bringing together dozens of designers from coast to coast under one roof. Here’s our picks from this season’s crop of handmade and ethically produced designs:

ABOVE: Calgary’s Le Lou Ula adds a mysterious spin to the “90’s art teacher earring” trend with these “profile” hoops ($160). Each is hand-formed, so no two are exactly the same.

Eagle-eyed NOW readers and Inland shoppers will remember Hilary MacMillan‘s FEMINIST and EQUAL PAY wool bombers from last season’s sale — but this lavender number ($110) adds a slightly more personal spin. (MacMillan’s jackets get 10s across the board — dig this vegan patent trench!)

Enarmoured‘s Jordan Clarke makes all of her geometric brass pieces by hand, including these earrings ($180).

If I didn’t already have a giant tote filled with other, smaller totes, I’d be snapping up this pop art-inspired Okayok bag ($30) covered in gigantic heat-transferred vinyl polka dots.

Amanda Moss, a recent transplant from Montreal, does wearable staples in ethical fabrics. This watercolour-print crop top ($99) is made from a breathable rayon blend.

This coily bangle from Montreal’s Gament ($150) has a secret: It’s actually several bracelets that combine via magnets to become a cuff. Like all of Gament’s designs, it’s 3D printed from flexible nylon (some contain aluminum for a bit of sparkle).
