Hermes Spring Summer 2013 – Long Live Sport

Hermès does an incredible job with their product videos. They are extremely well done and hit that sweet spot of cute and whimsical that wins me over every time. The Sporting Life is the theme of the 2013 for Hermès and this set of four videos does a terrific job of conveying the theme. Each video takes items from the spring summer 2013 and incorporates them into sporty vignettes. Ping Pong features the Toolbox bag and the Rallye 24 Porcelain Collection.

Comme des Carrés, Hermès x Comme des Garçons

A few months ago Hermès and Rei Kawakubo announced that they would collaborate. Comme des Garçons x Hermès scarves naturally got people pretty excited. I’m one of them. The collaboration resulted in two collections named “Black and White” and “Colour”. Rei incorporated house designs and manipulated them to create something new. The ‘Black and White’ collection is available only in Comme des Garçons shops (Aoyama-Tokyo, New York, Paris). The ‘Colour’ collection: collection can only be purchased at Dover Street Market stores (London, Tokyo). For people who can’t get to Tokyo, Paris or New York, you can buy the scarves online…

I want – I got Holiday Gift Guide – Part 1

So, this year I lost my mind and I decided to create a holiday gift guide. I’m usually anti-gift guides because I’m not much of a Christmas person and gift guides are a shit ton of work.

This is the part one of four in the I want – I got Gift Guide series. I have so many favourite things I wanted to include. This gift guide…

Perfecto Mag #style #fw2012 #Toronto

It was an absolute pleasure to participate in the Fall Winter 2012 Perfecto Mag Street Style video. I’ve been dying for it to come out and here it is. It’s amazing how it all came together. There was hair and makeup, styling, still shots and video clips. Most of the clothing from the video is my own. I’ve taken some screengrabs to break it down. 80% of the time I’m wearing some kind of Prada sunglasses. Here I’m sporting the Minimal Baroque. Ahh the pants, a random Versace x H&M find. They look great on camera. One of my favourite…

This seems to be the year of starring in ad campaigns for me which is pretty freaking awesome. Earlier in the spring, I was in the MasterCard Stylicity campaign and now for fall its Moon Apparel. They have gathered some of their favourite Canadian bloggers to show how we incorporate Moon Apparel into our wardrobes. Like the Stylicity campaign, this is a paid gig.

The bloggers were specially selected by Mimran…

Le Monde d’Hermes Autumn Winter 2012

At the beginning of every season I trek down to the Bloor Street Hermès and pick up my copy of their lovely in house magazine, Le Monde d’Hermès. The Autumn Winter 2012 issue looks fun with a specially commissioned editorial by photographer, Olivia Bee. Olivia Bee, 18, is a photographer. Her blog is the showcase for her photographs and videos and shares the dreams and experiences of a young girl. Between naivety and naughtiness, she creates her own arcadia and reinterprets fairy tales with all the freshness and impertinence of a teenager. For Le Monde d’Hermès autumn/winter 2012 she has…
