The collection consists of three different frames available in black, white, and tortoise.
The Birds Papaya x Knix
Sarah Landry aka The Birds Papaya is killing it in the collab department as of late with partnerships happening with Smash & Tess, well.ca, and more. One additional collab to have on your radar is her latest with local brand Knix which has blessed us with The Papaya Box which consists of leggings, undies in the exclusive “Birds of a Feather” print, and a bra. The box sold out quick and my fingers crossed for a restock so make sure to sign up for emails so you don’t miss it!
Lacoste x National Geographic
To celebrate the earth and all of its wonders Lacoste has launched a collab with National Geographic. This capsule collection is available as of November 11 and is inspired by the National Geographic Photo Ark Project which is photographer Joel Sartore’s effort to photograph every species living in the world’s zoos, aquarium and wildlife sanctuaries. Get ready to get wild with prints ranging from the jaguar, zebra, and even frog print.

Ela Handbags x Sasha Exeter
One collab in particular that blew up the internet is the Ela x Sasha Exeter partnership. This belt bag sold out its pre-sale and then sold out again when it actually launched. Made of vegan leather, this bag is seasonless, functional, and sophisticated and can be worn with literally anything in your closet from formalwear to even activewear, plus you can even have it customized with your initials.
