We are so happy to carry Black Crane in the shop now.

New Delivery from Lauren Moffatt

Spring arrivals are steadily making their way into the shop and what we’re getting from Lauren Moffatt is putting a sunshiney smile on our faces. Colourful, vintage-inspired, offbeat yet still classic… for the gal who isn’t afraid to stand out in a crowd.

A personal fave. The Crown Flower pullover in a bright and bold ikat pattern. Wear it with skinnies and sneaks for kicking about in style.

New Arrivals from Feral Childe

We are so proud to have FERAL CHILDE in the shop now! It’s pretty evident that design-duo Alice Wu and Moriah Carlson both went to art school when you see their clothing. Their collaborative sketches form the basis of each season’s textile prints, and their use of sustainable fabrics, low impact dyes and that fact that everything is made in NYC makes their work even more special. Subtle and sensitive detailing on each piece completes the picture.

Their Spring 2014 Collection, entitled “Disappearing Object Phenomenon”, plays on the sentimental curiosities of disappearance and reappearance with nostalgic tributes and the wonder of unexplained rediscovery. The collection is comprised entirely of natural fibers including hand-loomed organic cotton, silk linen, Tencel and hemp. First delivery is in the shop, the second delivery to arrive soon! We are in love!

The Borrower's Blouse is a personal favourite. Effortless and very chic.

We’ve Grown!

Shop Window

In case you’ve been wondering what we’ve been up to the last several weeks, well we’ve been pretty darn busy to say the least. In January we started preparations to move into the space next door to make room for more women’s clothing. The shop stays true to its focus on well-made, hand-crafted wares, we’ve simply expanded that vision to include more clothing.

This past Friday we finally peeled the paper off the window to unveil our expansion which we are so very proud of. There are still some kinks to iron out, but we are definitely open for business! As Spring stock begins to arrive, I can’t tell you how excited we are about the designers that are on our racks. We love their work and we feel so lucky to have them in the shop.

So what can you expect to see coming in for Spring? Lauren Moffatt, Feral Childe, Atelier Delphine, Black Crane, UZI, Hanna Dorothy, Sundry, American Colors, Nuthatch, Jennifer Glasgow, Utility Canvas, Archerie, Valerie Dumaine…. and more. Independent designers at their best! Got you curious? Well come on by and pay us a visit. And check your inboxes, too – in a few weeks we’ll be sure to have a party to formally introduce you to the new Much&Little!

If you want to stay on top of things, feel free to add your name to our email list here.

Hope to see you soon! xoxo
