We love it when our two greatest loves, music and fashion, collide as they did last night at Arts & Crafts Definitive Label Retrospective launch event, hosted by Joe Fresh and FLARE Magazine to celebrate the label’s 10th year anniversary. We were invited to the Joe Fresh Toronto flagship at Queen and Portland, for an evening of live music by the great Toronto up and comers Snowblink, along with Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning spinning some fine tunes.
We shopped the deliciously colourful and positively infectious Joe Fresh spring collection while sipping on Aperol Spritzes and munching canapés; talk about a fun way to shop! Snowblink took the stage for a short but very sweet set, antlers affixed to their guitars and indie spring whimsy blowing in the shop doors. They played about six tracks including “Blue Moon” which is featured on the Retrospective, and near the end of the set, a small child joined them on stage for a dance.
Brendan Canning took to the decks following the mellow set to really get down to some serious and much needed shopping for the spring season. We’re so excited to listen to Arts & Crafts Retrospective for the rest of the week (congratulations on ten amazing years), while rocking our new bright Joe Fresh finds of course.
