Viktor & Rolf Take Over The Room at The Bay Toronto

“Nice jacket”: two words that literally made my week, uttered by Viktor Horsting (or was it Rolf Snoeren? It was all such a giddy blur.) to me. The jacket in question? A mustard yellow blazer with contrast black piping designed by Viktor & Rolf themselves. The Amsterdam-based duo was in town earlier this week for a very well-attended meet-and-greet with Toronto’s fashion set at The Room at The Bay.

With HBC President Bonnie Brooks and VP / Buying Director of The Room Nicholas Mellamphy as hosts and DJ Mia Moretti spinning her magic, partygoers that included the inimitable Jeanne Beker, FASHION Magazine’s EIC Bernadette Morra and socialites Stacey Kimel and Suzanne Rogers spent the evening chatting with the charming Dutch guests-of-honour, sipping on champagne and admiring the V&R wares.

Dr. Lisa Airan and PR maven Suzanne Cohon stole the sartorial show with brightly-coloured frocks, the former in an orange Carven dress with cutouts and the latter in a fuchsia Roksanda Ilincic number (last seen on Ginnifer Goodwin!). The usually cool as a cucumber blogger Anita Clarke chose a peplum Roland Mouret to meet her fashion idols, while the effortlessly chic stylist Amy Patel paired her Margiela x H&M bodysuit with denim overalls for the occasion. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention blogger Jay Strut, who showed up in a heavily embellished Balmain jacket that made our jaws drop.

Stylin’ from the Backseat: Mellow Yellow

My closet has been undergoing a colour evolution over the past year, and this Viktor & Rolf sale find from The Room at The Bay was the most surprising addition to date. Me in mustard yellow? Never would I have imagined! It’s never had a place in my wardrobe until this very blazer, and now I’m wondering where it’s been all my life. In fact, I’m so enamoured by the jacket that I wore it for a recent shoot for eBay.

I’m currently featured in the eBay Style Stories series. In the interview, I’m asked to divulge my favourite eBay find ever (too many to name, really!), what’s next on my must-buy list (hint: a piece from a Toronto-based jewelry designer), and my eBay saved search terms (top secret info!). Find out all of that and more about yours truly in the story here.
