As a life-long jewelry lover (and serious) bracelet fan, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the launch of the new men’s collection by Dean Davidson. Trust me – it’s going to be HUGE. A celebrated designer, Dean has been designing women’s jewelry for over 10 years. The idea to do a men’s collection has been in planning stages for some time and as you’ll see, it was well worth the wait.

In anticipation of this year’s Calgary Stampede, Holt Renfrew recently held its second annual Holts Hats Off event by teaming up with a super impressive group of talented Canadian designers to benefit the Calgary Health Trust.
