COLOUR CRUSH: Marina Blue
New shades of blue are a rare thing to come by, every possible hue has been explored many times before. That being said, when certain blues we haven’t seen in a while make a comeback, we’re all for it.
The more blues the better!
Next season, we’ll be seeing the return of Marina Blue.
This particular tint of blue is very cool, soft and exquisitely contemporary. It’s perfect for a variety of different garments, whether they’re casual or formal, but it’s even more fun as a statement accessory colour!
As you can imagine, we’re well prepared for the Marina Blue takeover here at Télio, we have a variety of fabrics of the shade or incorporating the colour. Our Rayon Voile Print, Miami Denim and Mesh for instance, as seen below.
We want it to be Spring already so we can wear this colour (truth be told, we’ll totally start wearing it right away). Are you going to be rocking some marina blue as well? Let us know!

TREND ALERT: Blanket Capes
If you’ve been inside a clothing store this season you’ve undoubtedly seen this season’s biggest trend; the blanket cape! Yes, we’re aware it’s just a fancy industry name for a poncho, but we’re all over it, and technically, the blanket cape is worn a little longer than the regular, traditional fringy poncho that was all […]
TREND ALERT: Sequin Tunics
Have you ever had that moment where you see a piece of clothing and you know that you will never get over it. We say ”never get over it” because buying said piece is totally out of the question, but it simply will never leave our thoughts for as long as we live. Has that […]

CATCHING UP WITH: Télio's Canada's Breakthrough Designers Competition 2007 Special Mention Winner Thomas Tait
In 2007, at Télio’s Canada’s Breakthrough Designers Competition, one student caught the attention of our panel of judges, so much so that they awarded him a special creative mention (that has been part of the competition’s prizes ever since). Thomas Tait’s garment was so expertly constructed that they needed to acknowledge it, even though it didn’t necessarily […]

We all know Marilyn Monroe, her face is instantly recognizable, we acknowledge her tremendous beauty and everyone agrees that she is a Hollywood cinematic legend. That being said, not many people realize the gigantic impact she had on the fashion industry as a whole. In today’s overtly sexualized world, it’s hard for us to imagine […]
