I'm a budding social media marketer, super-stylist, blogger and fashion nerd. I <3 disposable cameras, cupcakes, obscure Swedish bands, LND town and the taste of sea salt in the air. A hopeless romantic, with big hair, a bigger heart with Drum'n'Bass ripping through my veins.
I’ve adored Mr. Mikhael Kale for so long, it’s a wonder that this is the first time the Patron saint of the urban cool woman is featured here. This Toronto native and Central Saint Martins graduate embodies charm, passion and oozes massive amounts of likability. For some, his designs may be based in classicality with sharp and short cocktail dresses for the beautiful young things. Whipped pink confections, robin-blue crisscrossed numbers all tight, tiny and cut close to the body. But ripped and revved in fringe and plunging necklines – Kale challenges his women. Forces them to push forward and strut center stage, for these pieces are not for those with a faint heart.
I love me a well dressed Man-Boy.
Perhaps it’s the combination of waning youth
and a deepening sense of maturity.
Passion and patience such a sexy combination.
And perhaps this is why I like my Man-Boys
dressed in Ado Les Scents.
‘Ado Les Scents in the Rain’ is Korean-born, Amstedamn-based designer Hyun Yeu’s, sophomore collection. Fresh, young, clean and yet there is an air of elegance. Casual and so very European.
The campaign images and video shot by Joost Vandeberg manages to capture Yue’s sense of vulnerability perfectly. Darling Dutch boys and lilac powders. I’m going to take a moment and gather myself.
Anyhoo FAB news! Hyun Yue will be presenting his collection this month at [FAT] as part of Toronto’s alternative art and fashion week. Along with some of the cities greatest contemporary designers, artists and musicians. It’s bound to be a fantastic time had by all.
So come out and celebrate all that is truly insightful and unique.

I have fallen in love,
with Calla Haynes namesake A/W 2010 collection.
With sun streaming in through my window,
sorting through these images I want nothing
but hazy grey days, cobbled streets and ANY piece of this collection.
It is clear that Calla is an incredible talent. The slouchy ease and the precision tailoring of her pieces are what makes every single item of clothing so damn desirable. The collection is well defined now with the addition of pencil thin day trousers, quilted jackets, sheer paneled blouses and body conscious dresses covered in her unique digital prints. There is no question that Calla’s talents lie in print, stints with both Olivier Theyskens and Jeremy Laing easily prove this. So the amalgamation here between the delicate patterns and opulent textures are near perfect.
Dirty Breton stripes and pearly jacquard play nice among the racks. What more can a girl ask for?? My absolute favorite piece is of course the signature dress of the collection, with it’s sweetheart neckline and the floor length sheer printed skirt. So beautifully understated and easy I can’t help but want to feel like a melancholy Parisian princess in it.
I must admit I have been out of the Vice mag loop for a little while now. It’s celebration of hipster raunch has left me more than a little bored. But the launch of the magazine’s Vice Style Beta site has piqued my interest once again. The website showcases some serious styling talent, cool concepts and fantastic interviews featuring Karl Largerfeld, Brix Smart, Crystal Renn and crap loads more.
‘Death Becomes Her‘ is my favorite editorial to date and was part of the Vice magazine fashion issue. It is shot by Ellis Scott and features pieces created my jewelry wunderkind Dominic Jones. The twist here is the use of dead sea animals and simplistic gold chains.
So Brilliant! Dreamy and ethereal and not at all repulsive as one would expect. DJ Babez, I am yer biggest freaking fan! So totally BANANAS.
I’ve been listening to dreamy pop music non stop for the last few days. I blame the gorgeous gray weather,
I am left floating on the edge of fantasy and reality
waiting for spring sun with bated breath.
It’s been a wonderful past few weeks,
and I am going to keep the dream a live by creating my own little wish lists.
I figure if I put the thought out there,
perhaps the universe will allow it to manifest? I think so. I KNOW so.
Wish list one: Denim Daze
1. Petit Bateau – Marinier Sweater
2. ASOS -Kuyichi Denim Playsuit
3. Keds – Champion White Classics
4. Chanel – Nail Color in Nouvelle Vague (but of course)
5. *Milan Kundera – ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’
6. Eryn Brinie – Marina Chambray Jacket
7. Urban Outfitters – Madison Wedge
8. Proenza Schouler – PS 1 satchel
what do you covet?
* mind you I already own this book,
I would just DIE for this particular cover and any information one would have on it.
