Canadian Designers Spotlight - Chloe Comme Parris
"We design things that we look for and can't find," says Parris Gordon (bottom right), 21, one half of the Toronto/Halifax sibling design duo Chloé Comme Parris (the other half is Chloé, 23, left). The sister's sophomore (fall) season offered a hit list of what downtown types desire: noir-on-noir velvet and knit layers (Chloé's contribution, as the textile and ready-to-wear designer of their brand), plus handmade silver jewellery and buckled leather bags tinged with Goth. (Parris is completing her metalwork studies at Nova Scotia College of Art & Design and creates all of the accessories for the label.) "We trust each other in the design process and we know that we complement one another without even trying."
