Embrace the Season with Winter Whites!

While Emerald might be Pantone’s colour of the year, we think white is making a huge comeback for 2013 - and we’re not alone. Designers put their own spin on winter white at this year’s Fall/Winter 2012 shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Forget “no white after Labour Day”, the snowy white look is in, and Quarks is embracing texture and tone appropriate for the season.


The key to perfecting winter white is choosing timeless, statement pieces. While the supermodels might be able to pull off the monochromatic look on the runway, picking one or two classics to add to your wardrobe will give you a lot more wear in the long run.

The Nappa Mukluk from local brand Manitobah Mukluks is the quintessential mukluk. These urban mukluks feature a Vibram sole that is built to last through cold, wet winters.

The Sheepskin cuff boot from UGG is definitely a fashion statement. Each pair features a unique length and amount of Mongolian sheepskin, so your pair is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.

The iconic Kensington Parka from Canada Goose is even more striking in clean, crisp white. Canada Goose has proven that you don’t need to add bulk to add warmth, evident through the clean lines and flattering shape of the Kensington parka.
