i want: Jeremy Laing Fall 2009 – 2010

I love the image on the landing page for Jeremy Laing website. It doesn’t look as impressive in this image so I suggest you click on the Jeremy Laing link to get a look at it in its glory. I just wanted to mention the image because it was so striking, but this is an i want post and the object of my affection is Jeremy Laing’s Fall 2009 – 2010 collection. I love it when Jeremy posts the collection on his site. You get photos from another angle and get to see some the details that you’d miss otherwise. There is a lot of beautiful details in this collection. Doesn’t this just scream wear me. The gloves, the little swish of the skirt, the freaking collar. I want! This is the “I’m so way hotter than you dress there is flames coming off me” dress. I love it, perfect for getting attention. images:

Jeremy Laing Ready to Wear – Fall 2009 – 2010. I’m a big fan of this collection The Jeremy Laing Fall 2009 video is what sealed the deal for me. Everything looks so good moving. The music selection is perfect. Things that I thought I didn’t like in print came to life in video. There is also a video of Jeremy backstage and he gives us more insight into the inspiration for the collection and it’s construction. images:

L’Oreal Fashion Week Spring 2009 – Holt Renfrew celebrates Canadian Fashion

After a season off the Holt Renfrew celebrates Canadian Fashion event was back on the LFW schedule. This is one of my favourite events of fashion week. It gives you the ability to see the clothing up close and meet the designers. This season it was hosted by Adrian Mainella of Fashion File instead of the free for all type atmosphere that was present in previous ventures. A clothing designer was paired up with a jewelry designer to showcase the work. There was a little Q&A session with each designer pair conducted by Adrian. First to show was partners in crime, Greta Constantine and Dandi Maestre. I’m a big fan of the designers work. They really complemented each other in the presentation, which was different from the runway show where I thought Danni’s accessories overpowered the clothing. Get rid of the handbags and what do you know, balance is once again restored. I had a bit of bias at the show too because I was lucky enough to get a preview of the Greta collection …

Jeremy Laing in W

Jeremy Laing is in the July 2008 issue of W mag. Here is a teaser scan, but go out and get a copy. I got mine. He is part of the Summer Camp editorial shot by Bruce Weber. The link has a slideshow of some of the images. There is a lot of naked Lara Stone, Daria and Kate Moss all over the place, be warned. School’s out, and the livin’ is easy. The latest flock of new designers hits the road with some top models and friends for a little fun—dressed or not—under the Miami sun.

Lucinda’s List: Toronto’s Top Ten Style Cliques

So Lucinda McRuvy of Rags and Mags had decided to map out Toronto’s Top Ten Style Cliques a la I thought the feature was pretty lame, mostly because I don’t live in NYC and I find the whole thing pretty high school (it never seems to end). That being said, this is Toronto, I live here and I find this list very amusing. Yes, your’s truly is mentioned and I’m surprised that Lucinda even knows my name. She’s never acknowledged my presence. Earlier this year, chronicled New York’s top style clans, courted controversy with their inclusions (and exclusions!), and drew attention to the segregated world of fashion. The article got me wondering about who shapes the Canadian style landscape. What style clans to we have? Are they as defined and closed as those in New York? Surveying and spying at Spring events, I surmised Toronto’s top trendsetting teams and observed those hovering around. Before I announce my Top Ten Style Cliques, I must address the hovering wannabes because it is so unsophisticated …

Jeremy Laing Ready to Wear – Fall Winter 2008 – 2009

Jeremy Laing Ready to Wear – Fall Winter 2008 – 2009 Inspired by the kaleidoscopic cover of The Possibility of an Island, the latest novel by Michel Houellebecq. The interior of a ’50s couture bodice, with its excess seam allowance becoming a decorative element. Josef Albers’s “Homage to a Square” color-field experiments. Quadrant-based construction, with a nod to Vionnet. love. images:

Check out the show video. Onyx dress with ski belt., Ski Dress

Jeremy Laing F/W 2006

I don’t like to get adhead of myself too much. I’m not really into thinking about Spring when it’s cold and thinking about Fall when it’s warming up, but that’s just me. I did happen to notice that Jeremy Laing has the F/W 2006 collection pictures up on the website. Love the presentation. Drool away people.

Od to a new job…

I started a new job on Monday. I’m still in software, just back to my favourite stomping grounds, the business district. I worked for 3 years at a company that didn’t have a dress code. I could pretty much wear whatever I wanted. So I spent most of my time in jeans. Now that I’m working for a financial institution I have to look a lot more professional. Thankfully, I didn’t need to buy a whole new wardrobe. I’m a clothes horse and have a far bit of professional attire. Not enough suits though, so I’ve been looking. This post is about if I had unlimited funds to buy clothes for my new job. If I could afford these clothes I probably wouldn’t need to work. I took a look through the Spring/Summer 06 collections and this is what I found. Starting with a good old Canadian boy, Jeremy Laing Roland Mouret
