Handsome and Lace
Based in Toronto, Handsome & Lace creates independent tailor-made accessories that will change your attitude on bowties, headbands and more. Keira started sewing clothing for herself as a teen. She decided to focus on accessories and hand stitched hairbands with a company who made pieces for Holt Renfrew. Soon after, she started Handsome & Lace.
Her design process?
Keira: I'm inspired by things that make you feel pretty no matter how much time you like to spend getting ready. I love creating pieces that don't look rushed or lacking something. If I'm going to create it, I want it to be my favourite thing in the world - until I make the next piece. I love seeking out random vintage stores and going in the deepest parts sourcing fabric no one else thought to work with. It brings me all of the joy!
