For her new line Scout & Catalogue, Toronto-based designer Breanna Musgrove did exactly that. She and her boyfriend spent a year exploring his hometown in Mexico and she was immediately inspired by her new surroundings. Using the vibrant Mexican beaches and laidback, outdoor lifestyle as a backdrop in which to start creating, she began dying and sewing her new line of handbags and scarves.

“Mexico inspired me in all the ways that completely changing your environment can. It was warmer, messier and more vibrant than my life in Canada,” she says, “I couldn’t help but want to make something to communicate all the change that was happening within me and around me.”

The result is a collection of easy, eye-catching bags and scarves hand sewn and dyed by the designer back in Canada.
