Parris and Chloé Gordon are the two Toronto-based sisters behind the women’s ready-to-wear and jewelry label Beaufille, which made its debut at New York Fashion Week debut this season with a collection that left editors and stylists impressed. “We were quite nervous and emotional but made sure to have a little pep talk and high-five session first thing in the morning,” Parris recalled. “It was literally a dream come true.”
From flared, oxblood pants (plenty of folks were ready to order these on the spot) to open-knit sweaters, the assortment they prepared for fall perfectly captured the aesthetic of their label. Chloé, 28, and Parris, 26, have been heavily focused on the balance of masculine and feminine touches since launching their line in 2013, with menswear-inspired trench coats, cozy knits, moto jackets, and chokers as their signatures. (Fittingly, the name Beaufille translates to "handsome girl.") Along the way, they’ve picked up stars like Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez as fans, and scooped up major accolades from the CFDA (most recently, they won the 2015 Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in the Accessories category).
For now, their covetable pieces, with prices ranging from $190 to around $2,000 for ready-to-wear and $175 to $6,000 for fine jewelry, are available in limited supply shops like L.A.’s Satine Boutique and Sincerely Tommy in Brooklyn, as well as online at Shopbop. We’re guessing they’ll be landing in major luxury retail stores soon.
