Flashback Friday!

We wanted to have a little FUN on this Flashback Friday and give you an insider's look at a buying trip in New York City. Back in February Gail-Lynn, Brianna, and Jennifer spent three fashion-filled days in the Big Apple. Two of fashion's largest trade shows, Coterie and D&A took up most of their time, along with some private appointments throughout the city, a couple great meals and a even quick stroll along the High Line. These three ladies may make the job look easy, but we assure you they put in a lot of hard work to find you the best for the upcoming Fall 2014 season!

This blog features a highlight video and photographs of their trip!

Women have trusted Saffron Road for over 20 years for the best in quality and fashion. We've been working to do the same for our Saffron guy for the past couple years and now we have it down! Men's fashion doesn't change at quite the rapid pace that women's does, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring! We've found the must haves for every man's wardrobe, but made sure it's the right mix of fun prints, perfect fits and bold colours, while maintaining the same quality you'd expect from Saffron Road.

Our guy likes to have FUN! Mixing muted plaids and bright solids make the sometimes preppy look fun and fashionable. Autumn Cashmere and Vince play up texture with perforated details and colour blocking, yet offer the ultimate in comfort and fit. The classic Vince chino is ideal for any look. Rolled up and cuffed to give a more playful feel, or worn at it's regular length, this is the perfect pant for all the Mr. Saffrons our there!

Whether your head is in a book or in the game, it's easy to add a sporty element to any guy's look. A casual, lightweight crew neck sweater is perfect over a tee or a button up shirt. Roll up the hem on your jeans, pants, and even your shorts, and pair them back to a low profile runner. We're seeing blue everywhere! Bright indigo, deep navy, and weathered blue are great worn together for a tonal look or layered back to neutrals. Blue is this season's most popular colour.

There's a little bad ass in every guy, and we channel that in the most sophisticated way possible! Dark denim and a leather jacket are a staple for every man's closet. Tying your plaid shirt around your waist isn't just a 90's one hit wonder, it's back and we love this look! Keep in mind, not all plaid shirts are created equal. This season, Ben Sherman offers short sleeve button ups and light weight long sleeve options, and Vince shows luxe, bold colours.

Once you find your perfect TEE you are set! Get the right fit; slim through the chest and body, with the hem hitting just below the belt. Throwing on a James Perse Tee is probably the most comfortable decision you can make in your day. Want a great way to add colour to your outfit? Vince offers the season's best in colour and can be a little more fitted, making it perfect for layering. Either way, we have effortless dressing perfected with the right t-shirt. 

K I C K S

We firmly believe you can never have too many shoes! Slide in to a comfy Frye shoe, lace up a sleek boot from Modern Vintage or keep it classy with a lace-up loafer from Bed Stu. We've got you covered for all your footwear wants and needs!

A visit from Tessa

It was very exciting having Tessa Virtue walk through the doors of Saffron Road yesterday, Olympic medal in hand! Tessa is a long-time customer at Saffron Road, so you can just imagine how much we enjoyed following her and Scott as they represented Canada at the Sochi Olympics. Such a talented athlete AND she loves fashion! What's not to love about her?!  

Congrats Tessa & Scott!

We're always proud to support Canadian designers, but tis the season to be proud of our phenomenal athletes! We especially want to congratulate our local favourites Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Their performance at Sochi was truly magical!

Thank you Tessa and Scott!

Jazz It Up

We'd like to congratulate the Fanshawe Fashion Merchandising program for hosting a glamorous fashion filled evening. What a fun way to support a very worthy cause! Gail-Lynn and Jennifer are proudly dressed in Canadian designers Comrags and Greta Constantine.

Office Ready

We haven't even hit the peak of winter and are already trying to find ways to brighten up our cold weather wardrobe! We love this printed Rachel Roy top and pencil skirt; the floral print is fun and vibrant.  In keeping with current colour trends, we paired the black based print with a navy Judith & Charles jacket. 

Our guy is sporting some classic pieces from our men's collection.  Depending on your lifestyle, our menswear can be incorporated into a casual, work, or formal outfit.

Throw Back Thursday

Even though it was not long ago, we are now wishing we were back in NYC at the Liebeskind party!  While away on one of their buying trips in September, Jennifer, Jonathan, Brianna and Gail-Lynn hung out at the the flagship store in the trendy SoHo neighbourhood. It was a truly enjoyable evening spent listening to live music, snacking on appetizers, sipping on drinks and conversing with people from all around the world who share the same love...Liebeskind bags.

In additional to throwing a great party, Liebeskind also makes some beautiful bags! There's always something new and exciting from them, so come and check it out.

Trend Alert: The Silk Bomber

The silk bomber is trending for both the current Fall season and moving forward into Spring 2014! We've picked up this fun trend from Equipment because when it comes to silk, no one does it as well as they do. We're currently offering both a classic black & white print and a bold floral print as featured above.


So how do you make use of these must have jackets? We suggest throwing one over a LBD, pair it with a fitted skirt or back to a great pair of jeans. Play with layers and textures under the bomber, like a boxy tee or fine knit sweater. Still not sure? Take a look and get inspired by some street styles that have incorporated this hot trend.

Daniel Wellington

We LOVE the simplicity Daniel Wellington brings to a watch.  This gives you the option to jazz up your wrist with an arm party, or leave it clean, sophisticated and timeless with one of our Daniel Wellington watches. 

Here are a couple pictures of Saffron Road's arm parties featuring the DW watch!

From Trousers to Skirt

How cool are these Rundholz trousers that can be transformed into a full skirt?  At our Fall fashion show Gail-Lynn rocked the great print head to toe and taught us just how versatile these bottoms are.  Try them with anything from the matching jacket to a chunky knit or a fitted tee: the possibilities are endless!

Wine, Cheese & Fashion Show Evening

What a Wednesday night we had celebrating Fall with wine, cheese and fashion! It's always such a great energy to have the store filled with familiar and new faces who are as excited about fashion as we are. Whether you missed the event or just want a refresher, you'll have to check Saffron Road's Facebook page for pictures of the looks from our store runway. In the meantime, enjoy some fun shots from the evening.    

As always, we thank the many hands to helped put the evening together, the generosity of all who donated and all those who came out to support local!
