Gentle Fawn is without a doubt one of my favourite brands we carry at the shop. They make some amazing basics, but also statement pieces that stand out amongst other pieces we have in the store. Gentle Fawn is a Vancouver based company founded by Daniel and Carla Hogg in 2003. The couple was inspired by a set of antique ceramic fawns, hence the name Gentle Fawn. Gentle Fawn is now sold all across North America in approximately 600 stores. They pride themselves on selling high quality pieces with a current, girly, boho vibe.
Gentle Fawn’s GXF line is all about the basics. If I had to recommend one item to buy from them it would be their Alabama tee. I think I own every colour they make in this t-shirt and wear them on a weekly basis.
Clothing that can be styled in different ways and worn throughout different seasons can be hard to find. This Gentle Fawn cardigan, along with many other pieces, is perfect for transitioning between seasons. The feminine silhouette, light colour and fabric gives it an effortless look that pairs perfectly with summer dresses as well as makes for a great bathing suit cover up.
Gentle Fawn is best known for their girly, boho glam style. I am not one for ultra-feminine clothing; my style tends to be a bit sporty with a mix of classic, menswear inspired pieces. Although Gentle Fawn has perfected girly cuts and pretty patterns they also make pieces that can be styled and worn by anyone, no matter what your personal style is. Every season they come out with these amazing oversized plaid tops, the fabric is light and flowy but the print as well as the shape is less feminine, making it perfect for someone like me.
Lastly, Gentle Fawn is a great “go to” brand for versatile dresses. They somehow manage to create dresses that when paired with heels are perfectly appropriate for a night out but can also be paired with sneakers to make a casual, everyday outfit.
We love supporting local brands and Gentle Fawn is definitely one of our favourites and we hope you love them as much as we do! Make sure to check out all the latest summer pieces next time you are in the store!
