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.

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!

SPRING 2014 TREND REPORT

It's FINALLY here! Longer, warmer days filled with promises of sun kissed skin and liberated toes. We can't help but daydream of weekends at the cottage, BBQ dinners, backyard weddings, road trips and garden parties. Whatever the coming months have in store for you, we're certain we can dress you for the occasion. Here's our Saffron Road Spring'14 survival kit: the MUST HAVE trends, looks and accessories to get you through this long awaited season.

C O L O U R  &  P R I N T

Anything goes with colour and print for Spring! Go bold with floral, plaid and graphic prints. Play with pop colours in yellow, pink, green and orange. Keep cool with neutral, muddy tones. We're hearing a lot about the always-popular-for-Spring pastel. We understand that this trend can sometimes be tricky, so we suggest trying a soft, blush pink.  

S P O R T Y   C H I C

We put enough effort into making our workout gear look good, so why not take it to next level and make comfort look fabulous?! We're seeing this trend everywhere! In footwear we have the wedge runner and platform slip on. Dresses from Robert Rodriguez's and Bailey 44 are detailing with perforated textiles. Judith and Charles, DWP and theory perfect the slouchy, sporty chic pant. Sporting this look is fun!

B O T T O M S   U P

Things are looking up...in the rise, that is. Be it the still popular skinny pant, or the fun and flirty circle skirt, you have plenty of options. This is perfect timing as it will be a necessity for the new shapes and lengths we're seeing in tops this Spring.

C R O P   I T

Not sure you want to bare your midriff? Don't panic! It's not the only way to wear this popular trend. Pair your mini top to your high rise bottom or try layering it over a dress. You can even wear it to the office layered over a blouse and pencil skirt. Don't knock it 'til you try it.

L I K E   A   L A D Y

Sophistication and elegance go beyond colour and accessories this season. The lady-like trend comes in the form of suiting, skirting, blouses, and dresses. Within these forms, you will see a dramatic change in structure and shape with feminine details such as florals, soft pinks, and lace.

A C C E S S OR I Z E

At Saffron Road we offer a variety of jewelry to suit every possible outfit your wardrobe has to offer. You can sparkle with Myka, channel your inner bohemian beach babe with Chan Luu or find intention with Pyrrha and Love Heals. These collections not only enhance your wardrobe, but make for fabulous gifts.

Welcome Spring '14

The clocks have sprung ahead, the temperatures are trying to rise, and quite frankly, we're just fed up of the cold and ready for Spring! Today we officially launch Spring '14 at Saffron Road and couldn't be happier about it. Check out a few of our exciting looks on our homepage and go behind the scenes with our fun video from the day of the photoshoot. Only thing left to do is to come in and shop these looks for yourself!   

Behind the Lens

We're launching our SPRING 2014 website lookbook & video this coming Monday and couldn't be happier! We are so grateful to have such a well-rounded, high energy, and creative team at Saffron Road who make this job look easy! Below is a gallery of photographs that take you behind the scenes of our Spring 2014 photo shoot. 

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?!  

Holiday Ready!

With Christmas just days away and 2014 only a couple weeks from now, we're holiday ready at Saffron Road! Our facebook page and homepage have been featuring some of our favourite holiday looks.

Richmond Row Christmas Walk

We love being a part of the unique shopping experience along Richmond Row! Today the Row is kicking off the holiday season with the annual Christmas Walk. Many of our neighbours will welcome you into their store with warm drinks, snacks and special promotions. Later this evening, the street will be filled with carolers and an appearance from Santa! It's a great night to get the family out and in to the festive spirit. 

At Saffron Road, we welcome you in with sweet treats and an equally sweet promotion. Since it's just for one day, you'll have to come in to find out all the details.  

As always, we'd like to take the time to THANK YOU for choosing Saffron Road and for shopping local. We know there are many options and we are grateful you choose to shop with us!

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.

A big congratulations to Fashion Merchandising graduates Jennifer and Meagan! Though the two successfully completed the 2 year program in the spring, they just celebrated their official convocation last week. Meagan is no longer with us, but working hard in Toronto and you can come to Saffron Road and congratulate Jennifer in person!
