Constructing the future

Some seasons Donna Karan gets it exactly right. Wow.

A renewal, a rebirth with an industrial soul. Born of the elements, refined by design. This collection was inspired by the innovative passion of artist Lee Bontecou and architect Zaha Hadid, women who employ the strength of an artistic lens.

The palette - metal, air and water, contrasts the fire within. Each piece has intention with craftmanship and luxurious detail, articulating the body with modernity and movement.

So. I am looking for an excellent tailor in downtown Toronto. I am usually a DKNY guy due to the Flea not having made me independently wealthy but... found a silk, "black label" Donna Karan jacket at a thrift shop. It is in excellent shape but is in need of some careful surgery on the inside breast pocket.

You can afford DKNY? Geez, what am I doing wrong?

I can give you the name of my tailor and shirtmaker if you want, Nicholas. My tailor did a lovely job on duplicating some '50s suits, and the shirtmaker copied a shirt I saw in a picture of Lester Young. Just send me an e-mail.

Andrea: I am a master of second-hand and discount shopping. Sometimes the hunt can be frustrating but then there a days when you score a silk Donna Karan black label jacket for twenty dollars. And not just any dollars... twenty Canadian dollars. Oh yes.

Rick: Thanks!
