FOE & DEAR | Pop Up

Our longtime friend and designer of Foe & Dear - Katherine Schlattman - will be joining us from Vancouver for one day only with her jewellery and hair accessory collections in tow.

Stop by to shop her ready to wear collections as well as to find out more information on her ceremonial and custom work. Appointments can be made via the Foe & Dear website here (scroll down to the F&D in Toronto option).

Foe & Dear is a collection of one of a kind pieces that are assembled to order by hand and heart. Utilizing materials and incorporating influences from the world over, Foe & Dear offers collections of jewelry that honour humanity’s roots—from the sparkliest, most sublime peaks, to the darkest, roughest depths. This contrast illuminates a tension that envelops us: one of romance and mystery.

Founded in a tiny apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, during the thick of summer in 2009. and now designed and handcrafted amid Vancouver, BC’s shimmering skyline and sea, each piece of Foe & Dear jewelry is intended to delight and endure for decades to come.

ABOUT THE MEAL

Designed by Sunday Suppers, our Summer menu is inspired by the season’s bounty. Markets bloom with vibrant greens, berries, tomatoes and stone fruits and warmth surrounds us. In the kitchen, we reach for flavourful ingredients that mimic the intensity of summer — but also for cooling elements to cleanse the palette and refresh. This meal is inspired by the vibrant colours of the season, heat, balance, beauty, taste and our favourite foods to share.

A portion of the proceeds from each dinner will go to The Hunger Project, a global program based on an innovative, holistic approach, which empowers women and men living in rural villages to become the agents of their own development and make sustainable progress in overcoming hunger and poverty.
