Welcome back Herschel Supply Co. to Lavish&Squalor! The notably desired heritage brand, started in 2009 by brothers, Jamie and Lyndon Cormack and was named after the tiny town of Herschel to which the boy’s family migrated to in the 1900’s. Now, a well know heritage brand with much anticipated seasonal collabs is still manufactured in Vancouver, Canada. Known for the fine quality and craftsmanship of their bags, backpacks and accessories, toting your stuff is fun and practical with Herschel.

If your a newbie or firm follower, you will be happy to know that we’ve got new stock already in for fall that includes the Herschel x Ronnie Fieg! We dig this collab’s bag construction and choice to use selvedge denim and Cordura fabric, so you know they’re built to last, complemented with a great look and feel. The interior of these bags include major urban utility with a spot for your laptop, Iphone or Ipod and headphone access. The padded mesh straps, selvedge detailing, leather branding and heavy duty zipper details creatively provide extra durability for any tough user.

Every Friday we celebrate the beginning of the weekend with a toast to you: from 5-7PM we serve complimentary cocktails upstairs at Upper Lavish. But in honour of Toronto Fashion Week we wanted to celebrate with a few of our favourite Canadian labels, Muttonhead Apparel and Herschel Supply Co. and we hosted a special fashion installation presentation featuring pieces from their Spring 2012 lineup from both labels.

We just wanted to take a moment to thank both Muttonhead and Herschel for coming in and helping bring such great energy to Lavish&Squalor. Their truly Canadian style and ethos fits so well with us. We are proud to support fellow local labels and show the world that Canada is a fashion We also would like to thank one of Ontario’s best breweries, Flying Monkey, for providing such amazing beer to the party.
