Our fair city is busting at the seams with budding fashion, but one newish label that's recently stolen our hearts is (212) . For a little over a year, the New York-based line (which, funny enough, has a boutique in Vancouver, BC) has been serving up some killer clothes for girls with lighter wallets but equally high expectations. The local designers, Scott (a former model) and Anthony (a Parsons grad) met five years ago and have never looked back. We got the exclusive first look at their fall '10 line, which was inspired by the developing Mod scene on the Left Bank of Paris in the '60s. We die over the boyish-cut blazers with shrunken sleeves, and we're equally jazzed the duo threw in some shorter hemlines. Lucky for us (and you, too), (212) offers a few signature staples season after season. So, even if you can't wait till next fall to get your hands on the new collection, the designers are giving us access to three of their classic spring items available in NYC now for a special R29 price. You know that's one number you want to dial.
