Centered around the goal of taking the guesswork out of clothing, the style approach also steers shoppers away from potentially wasteful, trend-based purchases.

Canadian entrepreneur Britt Barkwell is looking to make creating the perfect capsule collection even easier with her new collection, T.Line.

We caught up with Barkwell to find out more.

Q. For those who don’t know, what is T.Line?

A. Founded in 2018, Trouvaille is a lifestyle brand that enables style conscious and organized. We believe in creating thoughtful, edited essentials that last beyond a season. To help you shop less often and buy with more intention, we recently launched our beautiful T.Line collection.

T.Line is released in quarterly capsules, each edition is designed to build on the latest and can be styled effortlessly while creating an elevated collection of exclusive items – edition #001 launched in March and the n°002 will launch this June.
