Christmukah Day 7: NORWEGIAN WOOD + MODASUITE

I Heart Norwegian Wood is a sentiment echoed by many hipsterettes. The darling designer behind this equally lovely line is Winnipeg born Montreal based Angie Johnson whom began NORWEGIAN WOOD in 2008. Synonymous with DIY chic, Angie creates eclectic clothing and rocking accessories that simply makes you ooh and aah at first sight- or at least that was my reaction!

Multi-hued fringe necklaces, edgy elastic harness bodices, and most notable for a novel cage skirt, NORWEGIAN WOOD has that girls-just-wanna-have-fun coolness. With panache for mixing prints, colors and textures, the pieces are whimsy yet modern and can easily be matched in any wardrobe.

Successfully grabbing international blogosphere attention, Style Bubble Susanna Lau and Style Rookie Tavi Gevinson are both fashion fans that have been spotted wearing the unique designs. The brand has even been featured on TrendHunter. With all this recognition, it’s no wonder that UK retailer Topshop came knocking on NORWEGIAN WOOD’s door requesting the brand to partake in their in-store pop-up shop Edit featuring merchandise by up-and-coming designers. Simply amazing for a woman that is practically running her own one-man show!

Her designs can also be found on her Esty store and HeadQuarters Galerie Boutique, a shop she runs with hubby, artist Tyson Bodnarchuk.

And for the lads…

Gentlemen! Here’s a brand new way of revamping your wardrobe. MODASUITE offers you the opportunity to create a made-to-measure wardrobe which is an effortless way of buying menswear without the hassle of not finding your size or going through alterations. All you have to do is go through the “Experience”, an easy guideline of creating garments based on your body type, measurements and fit preferences.

Those steps consist of:

1) creating a profile and receiving a $50 credit;

2) browsing through the collection on modasuite.com and choosing your style and accessories;

3) select your garment and customize it according to your personal preference;

4) give your full measurements to the FitGenerator to help figure out your preferred fit;

5) after all is done, place your order and receive your purchase in approximately 3-4 weeks.

Voilà!

What’s more, MODASUITE’s made to measure, personalized, design focus, limited editions, guaranteed fit, quality, customer service and their unique pop-up boutique are what sets this brand apart. In order to ensure well made tailoring, the menswear has partnered with Canada’s online network of alteration experts. MODASUITE offers an innovative and effortless way to purchase well-made menswear.

    Its simple,
    Every piece of clothing labeled with Modasuite’s brand has been made with the utmost care and quality.
    There are 8 assets that make the Modasuite’s concept so strong.
    YourKloset.com is only asking us for 3, here is what i look for in a piece of clothing:

    1) Quality: What everybody looks for in anything…

    2) Made to measure: Everybody hates baggie clothes, so hard to find clothes that are made for one!

    3) Customer service: Makes long hours of shopping so much simpler

    Thank you YouKloset.com for making ME discover MODASUITE!

    This message will obviously be shared on MY Twitter.
