What’s new at H&M? With H&M being so fast-paced, it can be hard to keep up with what’s new and cool in stores. I was invited to the H&M showroom during New York Fashion Week to view their latest collection and share all the beautiful details with you guys. The focus is indeed on the details in this collection – tassels, fringes and croc-embossments to name a few. I’m wondering if previous H&M collaborator Lana Del Rey had something to do with the inspiration for any of this. One of my favourite items of the collection are the air-superiority blue androgynous loafers (yes, I did my color research). The laid-back feel of these items was balanced out with a seductive semi-transparent black long dress which placed as a main attraction in the showroom. It’s interesting to see H&M’s direction towards a more cohesive collections. As many of these items tie well together, this makes it easy for anyone to come up with complete and head-turning ensembles.

Why Martin Lim Wowed at Fashion Week

ML_03

Although grouping all our favourites of Montreal Fashion Week would have been much easier on us busy bloggers, we decided that it would not do Martin Lim’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection justice to be grouped with all the rest. Hence, this separate review post to appreciate their collection, simply because we were blown away!  The collection is filled with some serious vitality and class, though is in no sense uptight.  Danielle Martin and Pao Lim have designed for the smart, elegant and confident lady who doesn’t hesitate to let loose and have a little fun.

The styling was DEFINITELY on the ball.  Designers often attempt to create a surreal environment in styling their collections with dramatic makeup and hair, which does indeed have its own advantages on the runway (high fashion is an unattainable dream).  Martin Lim took an intelligent approach with a romantic and feminine look, which allowed the female audience to properly envision themselves wearing these pieces (and pulling them off).  In my opinion, this is owed to a keen intuition for business on Martin Lim’s part.

It is impressive to see how far Martin Lim has come.  These young designers have reached great success at Montreal Fashion Week 24 and we anticipate much more in the years to come.

Enjoy these photos of our favourite pieces, courtesy of our photographer Dru.

Brad Pitt for CHANEL N°5: Original VS. Parody

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I was really looking forward to Brad Pitt’s feature in the ad for Chanel N°5. But I also don’t think I’m alone when I say that the video was a bit underwhelming. MAYBE I just hyped it up for myself too much. But anyways, Youtube star CommunityChannel made a parody of the ad and I found myself enjoying that much more.   Watch the 2 videos here! Let me know what you think!
