Virginia Johnson Arrives at Elevator

Posted on May 23, 2015 by Niko Downie

Full-blown summer is around the corner, and with the mercury rising it's time to bring some colour back into your wardrobe. New at Elevator for Summer 2015 is the queen of prints and bold colours, Toronto local Virginia Johnson. Vibrant, eye-catching prints adorn these beautiful shawls and scarves. Inspired by childhood summers on Lake Ontario, Virginia Johnson uses playful patterns featuring camels, cactus and bold florals to rouse your imagination and celebrate warmer months.
We've always loved throwing on a colourful, lightweight wrap in the spring and summer months - it's an easy way to add a dash of European flair to any outfit. These shawls are the perfect layering piece to add a splash of colour to your casual weekend jeans and tee, or wrap it around your shoulders as a beach cover-up or to keep warm on a cool summer evening. 
Each shawl's design was hand painted by Virginia Johnson with watercolours, and then hand printed in India. Made from a versatile linen blend, and coming in at a generous 28x72 inches, you'll fall in love with these shawls just like we did.

Elevator Welcomes Eddie Borgo

Posted on January 15, 2015 by Niko Downie

New to the stable at this week is talented New York jewellery designer Eddie Borgo. If you're a fan of sleek jewellery that tends toward the bold and brash, you'll be just as in love with this collection as we are.  With simple pieces like the single cone bracelet in gold, silver and rose gold, there are simple details that are easy to throw on every day, or if your taste is somewhat more luxurious, pave set tennis bracelets and show-stopping earrings cater to those whose lives are one long walk down the red carpet.


Having previously created jewellery for the likes of Marchesa, Joseph Altuzarra and Proenza Schouler, Borgo launched his eponymous line in the spring of 2009 with a keen focus on modernity and structure.  Shop the Eddie Borgo collection here.

Elevator Picks: Miansai Screw Cuff

Posted on October 29, 2014 by Niko Downie

We want to take a moment to talk about one of our enduring favourites here at Elevator.  Miami-based jewellery and accessories line Miansai has long been one of our major obsessions, and since we first got to know them, one piece in particular has consistently topped our list of must haves: the Screw Cuff.  With gorgeous curves and dead-straight lines, there's something ruggedly strong yet decidedly sleek about this signature design.  Miansai creative director Michael Saiger takes his inspiration from New England nautical life, and true to form the Screw Cuff calls to mind a sailboat's rigging and yachting hardware.

The Screw Cuff is available in a variety of finishes from solid sterling silver to brushed gold, and is coming soon in a matte black 'noir' powder-coated version.  Shop the full Miansai collection here, or drop by the store to see how the Screw Cuff of your choice looks on your wrist.

Shop the Loren Hope collection here, and don't forget about free shipping on all orders over $75.
