Before I jump into posts on the coverage of Toronto Fashion Week [WMCFW], I just wanted to touch on the lookbook for Maison Martin Margiela for H&M. I find I am always a big fan of H&M’s collaborations, and this one is no exception. Hitting selected stores November 15th, the collection is nothing short of fabulous. So Margiela. So amazing.
These are a few of the outfits that caught my eye from the look book that was released. There are so many more though that include a stunning leather jacket, a massive grey sweater dress, and a glove handbag [I’ll let your mind run on that one]. All things perfect for Fall and Winter. I do have one absolute favourite piece from the collaboration though and that is that AMAZING shiny pink clutch that you see at the top there. YES, THAT’S A CLUTCH. I couldn’t be more happy about this piece… what a brilliant idea. It’s literally arm candy, as well as eye candy. In other words, a piece I need to get my hands on. xox
Thanks to Women’s Wear Daily [WWD] we now have more information on DANNIJO’s first ever footwear collection, which is a collaboration with footwear brand Matt Bernson. A week or so ago I posted a picture of a pair of boots that will be a part of the collection, the Zeppelin boot. Apparently this one boot, with it’s neon yellow panels and glittery straps, depicts what the rest of the collection will look like. There will be five styles in total, including calf hair and pony suede fringe boots with glittered heels, and denim Maryjanes with a glitter strap. I am picking up on one trend and that is glitter, glitter, and more GLITTER. I can already tell I am going to love each and every style.
“Street punk neon.” That is how Danielle Synder, co-founder of DANNIJO, describes the collection. I. love. it. This collection sounds amazing, although I wouldn’t have expected anything less from this amazing designer duo [Jodie and Danielle Synder], as they have been wow-ing us with their to-die-for jewelry for the past couple of years.
Come August this much anticipated footwear collection will become available on mattbernson.com, dannijo.com, and the much loved shopbop.com
Here’s hoping the next five months fly by xo
Our prayers have been answered ladies, Jason Wu for Target is coming to Toronto.. TOMORROW. A pop-up store is going to be set up at 363 King Street West, with 2,500 pieces from this collection. If all of you saw my previous post about the collection you will know that this is a great opportunity for you to get your hands on some really awesome pieces! What better way to get that jump start on your Spring/Summer wardrobe? There is one strict rule for this pop-up store, that being there is a three item maximum per customer. Total bummer, but let’s not get greedy and just take what we can get.
My advice to all of you lovely people is to take a gander on the Target website before you go, so you can go in knowing exactly what you want. Probably the best bet considering you are most likely going to run in to some pretty nasty shoppers, after all, it is Jason Wu.
When talking about his Toronto pop-up store Jason Wu said, “Working with Target has allowed me to reach a much broader audience and I’m so excited that my Canadian fans will have a chance to experience this collection for the first time.”
A few more exciting things about this pop-up store, as if there wasn’t enough excitement already, is that all of the proceeds will go to the Toronto United Way, annnnnd, the most exciting bit of all is that there is rumour that Jason Wu will be there himself!
Good luck ladies xo
Versace for H&M
My heart skipped a beat when I first laid eyes on this jacket. You think I’m joking, but I’m not. It’s almost as if I am at a loss of words to describe this jacket because it is that amazing. Some of you may already recognize it, and know where it is from, but for those who don’t, it is a part of the Versace for H&M line that is coming out November 16 2011. I am not one hundred percent sure of the price of this jacket, but my guess is that it is somewhere between $200 and $300.
The H&M at the Eaton Centre downtown Toronto usually gets the best selection for designer collaborations, and so that is the one that I plan to wait in line outside of. I don’t care what time I have to go there at, I can always catch up on sleep another day. This is one collaboration that I do not want to miss.
