ABOUT THE DESIGNER

The first store was opened in Ottawa in 1987 and we haven’t had a chance to look back. Now there are five stores in three cities — Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa. (Come visit us if you ever get the chance!) Our online presence is growing by leaps and bounds, faster than we ever expected. Wow, what a trip!

Canadian designer Jana Kalous has always aimed at creating a clothing revolution — freeing the world from the constricting and the boring. Kaliyana collections are liberating in not only their comfort, but more importantly, in their style. And best of all, any woman can pull it off, no matter what size or age or frame of mind. People from all walks of life find a look to love at Kaliyana. Compliments are built into every outfit.

Over the years we’ve developed a terrific following that’s grown mainly by word of mouth. If you haven’t discovered us yet, it’s probably because we prefer spending our time creating great designs, rather than wasting our days with endless self-promotion. We also don’t take ourselves or “fashion” dictates too seriously, but we do believe strongly in what we do. Our main goal is that you look fantastic in our clothes — we must be doing something right, because 25 years later, we still hear daily confirmations from our enthusiastic customers.

Liberate yourself from the ordinary!



ABOUT THE ANTI-SUIT

The Anti-Suit is a 3-piece clothing concept designed to make your life easier.

Created by Kaliyana, a Canadian fashion label with stores in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa since 1987, the Anti-Suit comes straight from the designer’s own go-to pieces, and answers every woman’s dilemma: what do I wear today?

Whether your day consists of meetings, travel, or cocktails after work, the Anti-Suit will take you effortlessly from one adventure to the next.

The most amazing white shirt in a primissima cotton, an easy-to-wear jacket and the best pants ever in a supersoft black cotton jersey. Three versatile pieces, one dynamic outfit. And with the addition of a tank top, a pair of jeans, or a turtleneck — the outfit can be changed in an instant. The possibilities are endless…


“My life is crazy. I go straight from working in the warehouse to styling
a photoshoot, then catching a flight to my next meeting. I need something
that I look great in, no matter what. And, seriously, I love it. It feels like
pyjamas and you never have to suck in your gut.”
— Jana Kalous (Designer / SUP Enthusiast)


Here’s the nitty gritty: washable, 100% cotton, free shipping, easy sizing, unstructured fit, comfort beyond your wildest dreams.
