Street Style: toddlers, artists and off-duty models hang out on the Ossington strip
Summer nights on Ossington have become even busier now that Bang Bang, the ice cream parlour and bakery that sells the world’s most delicious ice-cream sandwiches, has set up shop on the strip. Fashionably disheveled locals have taken to congregating around the little store—some waiting in line, others just hanging out after a bowl of pho at Golden Turtle or a pint at Bellwoods Brewery. The style is relaxed and unique: we spotted an off-duty model strolling to dinner in metallic Proenza Schouler sandals, a music composer in a slouchy beanie and a very smiley toddler in a nautical jumpsuit. The people we talked to raved about Ossington’s restaurants, vintage shops and theatre culture. Most, however, were united in their distaste for the rowdy weekend nightlife.
