If it’s loungewear you’re after, look no further than Sidia. Fashion industry veteran Erin Kleinberg named her brand of elevated casual clothing after her beloved grandmother.

Phillips’s structured bags are made entirely by hand in Toronto — we love the idea of treating a special handcrafted piece as a future family heirloom.
