The French words for “handsome” and “girl” come together in Beaufille to describe a minimalist Canadian label that seized the fashion spotlight at its launch in 2013 and has held it ever since. The ready-to-wear and accessories brand was founded by sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon, who studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, the former choosing textile and fashion design, the latter jewellery and metalwork. Together they aimed to create a label that walked the line between refined and relaxed, and feminine and masculine, whether that meant pairing ultra-flared trousers with a boxy trench coat, or a turtleneck cutout top with a
textured skirt. After winning Womenswear Designer of the Year at the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards in 2017, their 2018 spring collection proved to be one of the strongest yet, with plenty of their classic shapes (bell-shaped hems and sleeves, and louche blouses) reimagined in bold crimson and marigold hues, or in newly introduced fabrics like chiffon. Combined with Beaufille’s minimalistic Scandi-style jewellery,
the looks are wearable statements that nail the elusive “effortless cool” aesthetic.
