It’s a sure sign of Spring when stripes begin to appear on shelves of stores. The nautical look seems to appear year after year, with its bold stripes and fresh feel. What was once considered a fleeting trend can now be considered a fashion mainstay. Not one to miss out on a fashion cue, Ronen Chen has incorporated the nautical stripe into his Spring 2013 collection. Showcased in midi and maxi dresses, as well as a funk draped skirt, the stripe is definitely a focal point of this collection.
To keep the look perky for daytime, pair these striped pieces with a punch of red. In a top or on the lips, it will add an element of playfulness to the look. For evening, add touches of gold. A chunky bracelet or necklace will add drama.
At ShenkinWest, we pride ourselves on buying only the most relevant collections to offer our clients. If we see a burgeoning trend like the stripe, we aim to jump on the bandwagon and offer what we feel is most current and appealing.

Coming this spring: a collection from Ronen Chen featuring neon Union Jack scarves the can’t be missed. Available in an array of fresh neon shades, this accessory will bring a spring wardrobe up to date without breaking the bank.

Coming off the success of our pop-up shop in the Fall of 2012 , ShenkinWest is thrilled to announce that we are opening new permanent shop! Our new space is located one block north of our pop-up shop at 1726 Avenue Road. We will be opening our doors on March 18 and starting off with a bang by offering 15% during our grand opening week.
We were so happy and grateful for the reception that the Avenue Road and Lawrence neighbourhood gave us, that we couldn’t resist returning for a prolonged stay. Giving Israeli designers the exposure they deserve, as well as outfitting the women of Toronto in funky fashionable clothing is our mission and we feel we have been given a great platform in our new location.
ShenkinWest will be carrying the same Israeli designers as always: Ronen Chen, Kedem Sasson, Rina Zin and Maya Negri, as well as a sampling of shoes and accessories from various other designers.
Stay tuned for more amazing news from Shenkin West! Something exciting is just around the corner! Coming March 2013
When we first opened the Kedem Sasson box shipped to our Pop-Up Shop here in Toronto, we were greeted with polka dots, hounds tooth, and pops of red and orange. We immediately knew his Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection was going to be a hit.
Add a pop of colour this season to your dark fall wardrobe by introducing a bright cheerful handbag. MeDusa handbags come in the perfect hues to perk up an otherwise drab outfit.
ShenkinWest’s entry into the world of the ‘Pop-Up Shop’, although a calculated move, was a whirlwind. The concept of the ‘Pop-Up Shop’ is relatively new to the retail world. In essence it’s a temporary store that ‘pops up’ in a particular demographic or neighbourhood that the retailer is interesting in testing out. The genious lies in its temporary nature; as soon as the hype is gone, so is the store.
ShenkinWest could not be more excited about Ronen Chen’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Ronen Chen is known for his eye-catching pieces and he has once again put out a collection that is sure to impress.
Broken down into a series of ‘stories’, this season’s collection covers all of the bases. From structured lightweight jackets to funky printed retro-inspired dressed, there is a piece for every type of woman.
Mother’s day always falls during spring time, when women are re-assessing their wardrobes and deciding how to add a punch here and an update there.

ShenkinWest has a mother’s day promotion that is sure to satisfy mother’s day shopping and chances are you’ll walk away with something for yourself as well. Every woman needs a funky bag that is durable enough for daytime, but small enough to also use for evening. (more…)
This year peter pan collars have been all the rage. The age-old collar trend is back and hotter than ever. They are EVERYWHERE! From the runway to your favorite celebs, there is no shying a way from this retro trend. Not only does the collar take you back in time to the madmen era of party dresses and pedal pushers, they are also a sophisticated way to add that touch of quirk to your outfit. Have fun with this trend; wear it as if it’s a necklace. Try collars with bold colours, bedazzled embellishments, or fabulous prints. Now, while I encourage you to go wild with this trend, nothing screams chic like a crisp white collar. (more…)
