It’s been a few weeks, but we have photos to share from our recent excursion on The Shopping Channel. Jane introduced a new collection of handbags designed specifically for this occasion: Timeless looks made of genuine leather. Of course, Babydoll came along to help.
And while we were there, we got to hang out with the beautiful Tracey Bregman from the Young and the Restless. She’s even more gorgeous in person!
You can find out more about this special collection for The Shopping Channel on through their website: The Shopping Channel.

This red frame bag is part of our vintage-inspired Fall Collection called Retro Lux. While we were designing this collection, we had in mind luxurious furs, and sparkling details, rich trim…all of which would not seem out of place at an event where you’re seeking to make a statement.
To see Chatelaine style it as part of a beautifully demure every-day look is such a wonderful surprise! We love the creative way in which the stylist has appropriated the bold elements of the used this bright red bag and leopard-patterned loafers (hard combo to pull off on anyday!) to pull together a look that’s so elegant in its simplicity, and very of-the-moment.
We love how a little creativity shows a whole new side to an accessory we thought we knew.

More Magazine has shown us some summer lovin’ by featuring our beautifully sophisticated scarf bag in their first summer issues of the season! On the model, it looks great paired with a shift dress for work, but it’s equally good at lending a touch of elegance to a summer T and jeans. Give it a whirl!

We love our customers in Quebec! Those fabulous women always happen to pick our hottest bags, and we love the way they put it all together for that effortlessly chic look!
Our French-speaking followers have demonstrated their good taste yet again by choosing this fire-engine red bag from our collection. We like to think that Montreal will be a few degrees hotter for the appearance of this sac-a-main on the street.

Some of you may know Jeanne Lottie as a supporter of causes like Breast Cancer through out past Pink Bedroom Party events, but we are also strong supporters of other causes and charities that we hold dear.
A recent article by Teresa Kruze that appears in the monthly newsletter for the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness highlights one issue that’s dear to our designer Jane Ip’s heart. The CCAA has been helping survivors of sexual abuse both men and women, children and adults since it’s foundation in 1993. You may have seen its recent print campaign in Toronto’s subways with the tagline “Abuse Hurts.”
Jane tells Teresa Kruze about seeing the impact of her donations in kind (shoes, and bags) on women who are in need of a new wardrobe to support the new lives they are forging for themselves as survivors of abuse. We greatly admire the strength of these women who have the courage to speak up about an issue that often gets swept under the carpet because it’s so taboo.
Along with Jane’s interview, the March issue of Abuse Hurts features a touching personal story from a young survivor. It’s a peek inside a world that’s normally very private, and personal with good reason. Aside from putting a face to the cause, the CCAA does much of its work by supporting shelters and agencies across the country that house victims of abuse. And though the organization’s reach is nation-wide, its funding comes solely from the generosity of private donors, both individual and corporate. They regularly hold auctions and sales through their website as fundraisers. Jeanne Lottie is proud to support the CCAA and the work that it does.
To find out more about the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness, go to their website, or have a glance at their March Newsletter, where you can also read about Jeanne Lottie’s contribution to the cause.
