Just in time for fall weather to take hold, Toronto designer and Rogue Fashion Week regular Philip Sparks will launch his first trunk shop at Smash in the Junction on September 21. The space will be open for five days and will feature an edited selection of fall menswear, womenswear and accessories from his 2011 fall/winter collection. We were ecstatic over Sparks’ second womenswear effort earlier this year, and considering the temperature seems to be dropping, we’d love one of Sparks’s signature fall coats to keep us warm. The pop-up shop trunk show will travel around the city throughout the fall, giving us more than one chance to snag a Sparks original: “We’ll be collaborating with retailers and other creative partners who are inspired by the same vintage feeling as our brand,” Sparks said in a press release earlier today. The first location, Smash, is located at 2880 Dundas St. W. and will be open Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Dandies looking for new suits and gals in need of a skating dress will have to bring cash or a credit card, because this travelling circus of dapper duds is debit-free.
