Jimmy Choo Fêtes Opening of First Boutique in Canada

Jimmy Choo is on a roll of late: in August, the luxury brand opened the doors to its much anticipated first boutique in Canada, and then just this past week went through with a highly watched IPO. Busy as the footwear and accessories design house may be, they found time to celebrate their first Canadian boutique at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto recently.

Guests of honour Waris Ahluwalia and Mila Mulroney were joined by the city’s social set, including FASHION Editor-in-Chief Bernadette Morra, Cityline‘s Tracey Moore and Suits actress Meghan Markle, as they toasted the new boutique. The store reflects a new design concept being rolled out in expansion stores around the world, and will offer women’s and men’s shoes, handbags, sunglasses, small leather goods, and more.

Our favourite part of the new boutique, hands down, was the corner dedicated to the new made-to-order shoe service. The brand’s signature silhouettes, including the classic Anouk, Lance, Xenia and Tite styles, are available for customization for Choo fans looking for the bespoke experience. With a myriad of luxe materials and colours to choose from, we promised ourselves we’d return someday soon for a pair of personalized stilettos.

Haven’t yet had the chance to check out the fab new Jimmy Choo boutique yourself? Check out the gallery below for snaps from the launch party.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 17, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

This week’s Lookbook is all about fashion firsts.

Lisa was the first to rock a look from the highly anticipated Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration (#NBD), Sasha was the first to sport a piece from the 424 Fifth Fall collection we’ve been obsessing about for months, and Nelia was the first to ever make us consider going grey on purpose as she debuted her new platinum ‘do.

We may be hanging out in the backseat, but our favourite Canadian style bloggers sure aren’t – they’re right at the forefront of the scene.

Spotted from the Backseat: Hermès Men’s Universe Masculine Spirit Party

On October 7, over 600 of Toronto’s fashion set gathered at the Fermenting Cellar to fête Hermès Men’s Universe. Hermès menswear designer Véronique Nichanian, who has been in her post for an impressive 25+ years, flew in from Paris for the festivities.

Dubbed Masculine Spirit, the event featured eight installations and a presentation (with some very handsome models, we might add) showcasing the design house’s menswear collections, including highly covetable ready-to-wear, silks, watches, leather, shoes, and more. There was also a gif-creating photo booth with the brand’s scarves and leather accessories as props, a designer cocktail bar manned by one of New York’s finest mixologists, and one very busy dance floor; Hermès sure knows how to throw a party.

Guests definitely rose to the occasion, donning their Hermès silks in creative ways and breaking out the Birkins. Check out the gallery below for 38 style snaps from what may have been the party of the year.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 10, 2014 Edition


Lisa Dengler of Just Another Fashion Blog, Toronto/New York

One of the few reasons why we’re willing to accept the colder temperatures and increased frequency of rain that come with fall is the footwear. It’s prime time for prancing around in mensy loafers, brogues and oxfords, and we couldn’t be more delighted.

It turns out style bloggers across the country feel the same way. This week, Lisa sported a pair of to-die-for black and white loafers, Ania rocked a pair of edgy, pointy-toe lace-ups, and Krystin donned a pair of classic, tasseled beauties.

We’ll take a pair of each, please.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – October 3, 2014 Edition


Nelia Belkova of Style Blog, Toronto

Last week’s takeover of the Canadian style blogs by pretty dresses did not wane this week; ’tis the season, it seems.

This week, Liz sported the sweetest blue frock complete with bow and ruffles, Sonya paired a beautiful floral number with fierce leopard print pumps, and Nelia rocked an uber-cool printed Clover Canyon design (we’re obsessed).

Time to break out those dresses – special occasion not required.

Nothing signals the arrival of fall more than the return of plaid to the wardrobe rotations of bloggers across the country. From an uber-cool tartan suit on Lyndsey in Edmonton to the requisite chic boyfriend blazer on Krystin in Toronto, plaid is back and bigger than ever.

Will you be rocking the trend this fall?

From ruffles to pastels, this week it was all about the pretty dresses on the Canadian style blogs.

Our favourite bloggers all got the same memo: Sonya in an off-the-shoulder number, Ania in a frilly pink frock, Kimberly in a to-die-for LRD, and even Vanessa in a lovely, lilac dress. Did you?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – September 12, 2014 Edition


Alyssa Lau of Ordinary People, Edmonton

With NYFW in full swing this past week, the sartorial diaries of Canadian style bloggers who’d made the trek to the Big Apple provided plenty of Lookbook fodder.

From an all-white ensemble on Alyssa (snapped by The Sartorialist himself, no less) to a matchy-matchy green getup on Lisa to high shine co-ordinated looks on the Beckerman twins, Canadian style was well represented on the fashion week street style scene. Wouldn’t you say?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – September 5, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

This week’s edition of the Lookbook is all about matches made in sartorial heaven.

There are the matched sets we’re still obsessing over, like Alanna‘s gorgeous floral peplum ensemble and Barbara‘s perfectly transitional knitted getup. Then there are the pairings that weren’t actually made for each other, but are just so damn good together they may as well have been, like Sasha‘s fierce denim and leather outfit and Mo‘s on-point stripes and tartan look.

What duos are currently taking over your wardrobe rotation?
