the Hudson’s Bay Co.

I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and will always remember the large department store that’s in an old historic downtown building that everyone shops at, The Hudson’s Bay Company right down the street from the legislative building. Shopping at the Bay reminds me of my friend Ann, she would always have us in fits of laughter, there was just no ordinary passing through without a funny face or comment about some fashion accessory or item of clothing, lady knew how to blow things out of proportion, so ridiculously funny. The Bay has everything your regular department store would have, floors and floors of just stuff. Its trademark logo colors and design of broad stripes (green, red, yellow and navy blue on a cream background) I see often when I flip through fashion and designer mags, nothing new, it’s the Bay, it’s Canadian.

Isabel Marant Yuli silk scarf worn by actress Diane Krueger, retails for over $500?!

here’s another snap of someone in what must be a vintage Bay cardigan.

and here’s the original, the Bay multi-stripe point wool blanket.
