Warby Parker x Karlie Kloss

June 10th, 2014

Summertime is full of little indulgences. We break out the shades and sandals, put the top down on our cars, eat ice cream to our heart’s content, and relax in the sun among food and friends. Just in time to help us with our warm-weather style is a brand new collaboration from Warby Parker and […]

Themes from Paris Couture, FW12 – Part Three: of Forest Folk and Florals

July 13th, 2012

The final part of my three-part series on trends from the FW12 Paris couture shows concentrates on pattern and print. This season’s textile designs focused on wilderness as inspiration, and designers got in touch with nature via printing and other surface embellishments. Forest Folk Giambattista Valli’s collection was inspired by the creatures of the forest; […]

Part two of my three-part trend report from the couture collections in Paris focuses on colour. Along with the classic black & white which we see every year, there were a few colours that showed up time and time again, and a palette that in particular stood out.

Themes from Paris Couture, FW12 – Part One: of Shimmer and Shine

July 9th, 2012

Last week was Paris couture fashion week for FW12, and I had a chance to go through all the photos from the shows over the weekend. Here’s the first of my (three-part) take on the themes, or trends, that I noticed: Designers explored different kinds of shine in their collections; whether it was through little […]

A New Silk Scarf: The Octopus

May 16th, 2012

I’m fascinated by octopi; their bulbous heads, the patterns formed by their suction cups, the way their many limbs can fill up a visual space with fluid, sprawling, powerful movements. Some things just make great visual subjects for art, and octopi are among them. In my first project working with gutta on silk I made […]

“The Serial Designer”: Jean Paul Gaulthier for Diet Coke Europe

March 21st, 2012

I’ve been taking a little break from cooking up new recipes. It’s not because I no longer enjoy cooking, but because the others in my house haven’t been home much lately and I’m getting sick of eating everything myself! I don’t know about you, but after four days in a row of double portions of […]

It’s Time For Spring!

March 20th, 2012

Spring Equinox is today! And with warm, almost-summer temperatures and clear, sunny skies people in the city have already begun to populate patios and frequent their favourite ice cream shops. Due to the early warm weather we’re enjoying, I’m guessing that spring and summer product sales are going pretty well for our retailers. So, you’ll […]

I Can’t Get Enough Of… Graphic Colour Contrast

November 18th, 2011

…and neither can anyone else, it seems! It doesn’t take much effort to look stylish by taking a visually striking colour-blocked piece and pairing it with simple components. For the more adventurous, it’s fun to make your own look by layering pieces of similarly saturated colour – the brighter and bolder, the better! A few […]
