Kaitlyn is the modern Pocahontas. Romans 12:2 is her blog, and modern boho chic is her game. We stumbled upon Kaitlyn’s blog months back and fell in love the moment we started scrolling down the page. For a southern dame, Kaitlyn mixes just the right amount of west coast hippie with a dash of east coast edge and rocker spunk. Her style is beautiful, her personality is original, and her...

Last Whif of Summer
It’s hard to believe that it’s officially Fall now, considering the wacky summer we’ve had up here in Canada. Last weekend was the oddest on the west coast…hot 20 degree weather one day…down pour with high altitude winds the next…so paying tribute to our “last” summer day, we’re giving you some awesome summer streetwear before we upload the...
Slits are major this fall and were seen all over the runways. While you might feel obliged to cover up as the weather cools, this fad requires a little sex appeal and a lot of leg action. Leg-baring slits entered the fashion world around the 1970s. Designers like Halston and Givenchy honored the female form by snipping a sliver of fabric, letting ladies show a little skin while still leaving a...

Dots. Dots. Obsession.
It’s no wonder that up-and-coming designers like David Koma presented a FW collection inspired by Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. Known for creating art work based on infinity, self-image, and compulsion repetition to obsessive levels, Yayoi is known for the frequent use of polka dots and use of colour. Why polka dots? She says: “…a polka dot has the form of the sun, which is a...

She reaches her followers...

Mert & Marcus
Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott’s work and style is heavily influenced and shaped by the photography of Guy Bourdin and also the use of digital manipulation which they have pioneered the use of. They have defined the look of the past decade and as a duo are one of the most respected and acclaimed photographers working today. We decided to pay tribute via their photography campaign of leathers....

FW 2011 - Leather. The Next Generation.
Leather has been with us since the dawn of time. Are you even surprised that a major Fall trend for 2011 is leather, leather, leather. However, leather this season is pushed to another level. For the past few years, we’ve seen this trend develop from jackets, to skirts, to tops, to dresses. This season, leather takes on a whole new dimension. Super soft leather is melded into accessories,...

Layering length with sheer
If our late summer here in Vancouver isn’t going to burn up fall, this will. A solid-colour mini-length piece paired with a sheer midi or maxi skirt creates an engaging stop-start visual effect. Thakoon Pre-Fall 2011 Source: Chictopia
