Wants & Needs | Pop & Booze Bottle Candles from Adams Bottle Shop

Candles serve a dual purpose: They make light and they look awesome. With a Pop Bottle candle from Adams Bottle Shop you get light and you get awesome. Handmade in Toronto from 100% biodegradable soy wax, high-quality wicks and premium fragrance oils, you know this candle smells good and, duh, makes light. Make your next power failure, seance or dinner party an awesome affair with much light. Tap into your inner Coke fiend and get this candle before they’re all gone. The boozy versions, like Cupcake wine, Red Stripe and Chivas Regal are great too.

This is the first collaboration with Naked & Famous, which consists of knit tops, woven shirts, denim jackets, jeans, and a limited-edition long selvedge bomber jacket.

The Burbs: De l'île x Twik for Maison Simons

The new collection De l'île x Twik for Maison Simons is inspired by suburban environments and architecture. This is a light and colourful collection that remind you of the summer American Dream that you could find in the suburbs. Every single design is reminding you of soothing and peaceful universe of the suburb.

The limited edition collaboration consist of six pieces. Here is a sneak peek of a few pieces that will be available in store mid-March. We love the adorable art direction depicting different scenarios in the suburb lifestyle.

Wants & Needs | Noon Jewellery

Noon Jewellery Designer, Sophie Armstrong, is attracted to amorphous forms, which is evident in her previous collections. She continues to seek new shapes to create with, as seen in her latest, “The Singles Collection”. Inspired by the way people interact, and the bodies we move in, this collection is comprised of sterling silver and pearls. Every piece is made by hand and comes with proper care instructions to make these investment pieces last a lifetime.
