Toronto Fashion Week SS15 Day 2 & 3

I don’t even know where the past four days went to. Toronto fashion week is zipping by so quickly this season. Day one was amazing but extremly hectic, and I had no time to take any pictures.  A few of my favourite looks from Tuesday were the natural skin, full eyebrow and nude lip from Melissa Nepton, and the beautiful scarlet matte lips at Target. Wednesday started off with smoky eyes at Rudy Bois and ended with neon two-tone lips at Hayley Elsaesser.

Alexander Wang for H&M

One of my favourite designers debuted their much anticipated collab with H&M last night in New York. The Alexander Wang collection is sports/street wear inspired in a tonal palette of black, white, and grey–which I love. Interesting shapes, and textures are in full effect for the pieces, which are very much inspired by his mainline (the boots in the centre image are similar to ones I own from a season ago). I foresee the real issue for myself on November 6 will be what to put back. I kind of want it all.

Superdry AW14 Campaign Video

I’ve always enjoyed Superdry outerwear for women and men. Who can forget the fabulous Tassel Biker Jacket worn by Poppy Delevingne at this years Coachella. I recently received the AW14 campaign, and since yesterday was the official first day of autumn, the video gives a bit of fall wardrobe inspiration. The new seasons collection includes a good range of parkas to beat even the coldest Canadian winter.

W Magazine September Issue

There is too much fabulousness happening in the upcoming September issue of W magazine. Rihanna looks hypnotic on the cover with makeup by Kabuki, who I so admire. Then inside the editorial for Balmain. I die for Balmain and practically cried when I got to work the show in Paris a few years ago. Iman, Naomi, and Rihanna are hands down perfection. This is exactly why I forgo all August magazines so I can splurge on all the September issues.

Cara Delevingne for Topshop AW14

The new Topshop fall campaign is decidedly British. Shot in London by Alasdair McLellan, featuring London’s most popular export of the moment–Cara Delevingne. The entire campaign which shows key looks from the fall collection, is made up of twelve images. Cara’s signature brows take centre stage along with kohl rimmed eyes. Perfect skin and a pale lip complete the look.

The fall collection launches globally and online in August. As my friend so accurately said to me today “summer is slipping away…”

Love Magazine 12th Issue

Love magazines has not one, not two but three very cool covers for their twelfth issue. Adriana Lima’s stunning flamenco inspired cover was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Kendall Jenner is Katie Grand’s it-girl as of late, so it is no surprise to see her featured on one of the American girl covers. Amy Adams also represents the USA looking rather sultry draped over a chair.

All three cover issues will be available July 28.
