Shop Talk

SHOP TALK: Brunch Bunch brings food + fashion together at Hintonburg Happening

By Dayanti Karunaratne and Kelsey Kromodimoeljo

Have you heard about the Hintonburg Happening? Yes, we all know that the ‘hood is a happenin’ place, but this week it really takes off in a celebration of art, music, food, and, yes, fashion.

Shop jewellery, home decor, and more at JV Studios.

On Sunday, May 3, our favourite little corner of boutiques comes alive with hospitality and spring fashion. In an event dubbed the Brunch Bunch, Muriel Drombret will host Dunrobin artist Mette Baker, she of the wearable gardens, while Twiss & Weber continues in their rock’n’roll vein with warm leatherette, moleskin, sparkle, and fringe — even a touch of paisley. Plus, following their Big Hair or Be Square event on May 2nd, T&W will be selling “air guitar inspired T-shirts” (i.e., “Bill and the Private Members” and “The Joiners”) by Winged Beast Outfitters.

Check out JV Studios for everything from bling to mugs, VAM Boutique for summer whites and pretty frocks, and Flock Boutique for cute dresses at Flock Boutique. Here you’ll find unique Canadian-made garments and styles perfect for work — and cocktail hour. We love this paisley print dress from 3rd Floor Studio.

The forecast for Sunday is calling for a high of 22 or 24, depending your source. Either way, we say get thee to a Hintonburg boutique for a satisfying and stylish start to spring!
