The streetwear strip on Queen West West is having a summer meltdown. Check out 50 per cent off all summer stock at the Mothership (831 Queen West, 416-535-8618) on labels like TPHS, Triple Five Soul, Kitchen Orange and Snug. And across the street at Parallel (754 Queen West, 416-703-1777), they're having a "green tag" sale -- everything with the magic green tag's 20 to 30 per cent off, including gsus tops for $39.99 and Peter Golding skirts and all Gas jeans for $99.
As the city starts to get overrun by eager art student freaks from every corner of this godforsaken Group of Seven country, Aboveground Art Supplies (74 McCaul, 416-591-1601) is having their Gear Up For Fall sale. Pick up deals like a Conte Studio Sketch Set for only $9.99, sketch pads for as low as $3.69, stretched canvas and canvas panels starting at 85 cents and Derwent graphite sets for only $5.99. Ready, set, scribble!
hot boutique alert
C Squared (365 Queen West), an airy minimalist fashion boite that just opened last week, is already setting the loins of shoe fetishists aflame. The shop has probably the largest selection in the city from cool Italian shoe line Camper, plus bags, leathers and denim by the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Wild and Lethal Trash and Italy's Tina Maiani. We've got our eye on this still half-empty boutique. 416-595-5606.
