Whitney Linen is pleased to introduce VOYAGE, a capsule collection with Krystyne Griffin. A style icon well-known to the design arbiters of Toronto, a city upon which she’s left a striking impression with her fierce chic while cutting a swathe across fashion nationwide.
Bringing the world’s finest labels to Canada, Krystyne Griffin’s storied arc has spanned trawling European couture houses for Eaton’s, lining the fledgling Hazelton Lanes with cutting edge boutiques from Hermès to Courrèges, lending her élan to the launch of Holt Renfrew’s Toronto flagship, finessing the luxe retail at Pearson’s glossy, new Terminal 3 (Hello Harrods!), and reigning over YSL RIVE GAUCHE in Canada. Recasting herself as jewellery designer, the intrepid Ms. Griffin travels the globe exploring bazaars in locales from Jaipur to Marrakech for her bespoke bijoux line; bold cuffs her signature adornment.
“I’ve met countless ‘style icons’ over the years but few have impressed me as much as Krystyne Griffin” — Jeanne Beker
“She is her own best muse.” — Ian Hylton
Launching June 2017, Ms. Griffin’s ‘Voyage’ collection for Whitney Linen, conceived with her goddaughter Whitney Westwood, is centred on nine chic-simple pieces in a neutral palette. The versatile tunic, flowing kaftan, a perfect razor-back, A-line top, or half sleeve trapeze blouse, all layered over slim pants and wide leg trousers. Cut from fine linen, a textile synonymous with easy elegance, this wardrobe of essentials works everyday & abroad.
“Lightweight, easy-to-wear, and easy-to-pack, these voyage-inspired, one-off designs represent today’s lifestyle and will travel with you throughout the seasons.” — Krystyne Griffin
“As a young girl I was completely in awe of this magnificent and statuesque woman, my ‘god mummy’; always so chic and dressed in the very latest designs. Her incredible sense of style and creativity is so inspirational, it was a delight to work with Krystyne, for my own line, so many years later.” — Whitney Westwood
