I had coveted tulip flare trousers for ages. I believe it was Ellery that started the trend down under, shortly after they sent voluminous sleeves out into the fashion-verse to be carried like a torch (though near impossible to do literally) by street style stars and their leader Taylor Tomassi Hill. Trickle down from high fashion is essential to the fashion trend eco-system, with the majority of people needing that to happen in order to participate in the various trends. I too waited for my iteration to present itself, and at a convenient time. This time it was the contemporary floor that came knocking, not fast fashion. When Canadian Beaufille went on sale I was very familiar with the brand and their insanely gorgeous shapes. And very very pleased that The Hudson's Bay supports one of our best Canadian designers. Loving everything they do I was looking forward to snagging my first Beaufille "piece." Piece is the fashion speak for your nicer wardrobe bits when "where is that from" turns into "who is that by?" I have a lot of "pieces" from my time in New York and London where sample sales were the real deal and people did get naked out in the open. Or acquired by late night shopping with a glass of wine and not doing the exchange properly. Oops.
