Fall Trends

Listen up scrapbook enthusiasts. Pinterest is going all access for fashion week and the news may have just made our day.

Collaborating with 100 fashion influencers, from designers to magazines to big-time bloggers (Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Phillip Lim, Harper’s Bazaar, Garance Doré, Man Repeller), Pinterest’s fashion week hub is giving us the front row seat at fashion shows, behind the scenes, street style looks and designers’ inspirations.

Since its launch three years ago, the social media platform’s popularity has grown immensely and with more than two million fashion pins each day, there is no doubt it has also been the place to get inspired for fashion.

We’ve already seen how much the platform has transformed the connection between brands and followers: Oscar PR Girl has been live pinning Oscar de la Renta’s fashion shows for the past few seasons and J.Crew just previewed its fall lookbook exclusively for pinners. So it comes as no surprise when Pinterest decided to join in on the biggest fashion event of the year by giving its members a whole new way to experience the most exciting time of the season.


Continuing with its cool kid associations, Aldo has announced its latest Aldo Rise collab with Ostwald Helgason for Spring 2014. The collection will feature sure-to-be amazing shoes and for the first time, a complete range of handbags as well. Heyo!

For those who aren’t familiar with the label, Ostwald Helgason is the witty brainchild of London-based duo Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason. The label’s geometric cuts, book-binder hues and exacting stripes have made fashion week fans of street stylers Miroslava Duma and Natalie Joos as well as Solange, who wore the label to her performance in Toronto last fall. “Ostwald Helgason has been on our radar for about two years now. Their subversive use of colour and pattern, the luxe yet effortless quality of their design sensibility, and the mash-up of fine art references with modern technology translates beautifully to footwear – so beautifully in fact, that we had to do handbags as well,” said Aldo’s creative director Douglas Bensadoun via press release.

If the sketches above are any indication, we’re sure this is going to be one covetable collab. Stay tuned to see the collection in action at Ostwald Helgason’s Spring 2014 fashion show in New York on September 7 and in London on September 13.


See Edie Sedgwick’s style in life and on the runways »

Though she dominated just a sliver of time at Andy Warhol’s Factory in the sixties, Edie Sedgwick’s platinum blond bob, magpie style and tragic penchant for the excess has transfixed designers and artists alike long since her death by drug overdose in 1971. This season, Sedgwick is back into the spotlight thanks to perennial cool maker Marc Jacobs, who opened his Spring 2013 collection with one so unquestionably Edie look: a simple striped black and white T-shirt worn over hot pants, a platinum blond bob and low slung kitten heels. The look transformed for Fall 2013, with boudoir ready looks hitting the runways over and over at Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent.

The original Poor Little Rich Girl splashed onto the art scene starring in the Warhol-directed at film of the same name in 1965, and quickly deemed a “youthquaker” by Diana Vreeland, then editor of Vogue. She entered icon territory when rumoured paramour Bob Dylan left traces of her within “Just Like a Woman,” and “Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat.”

Sedgwick embodied the freewheeling sixties with her more is more approach to layering fur and leopard print over striped T-shirts (worn simply as dresses) while accessorizing with shoulder length chandelier earrings, exaggerated mod eye makeup and false lashes. Since, everyone from Courtney Love to Agyness Deyn and most recently Emma Watson has replicated her style. She’s become an inspirational mainstay over the years, re-appearing every few seasons in a new form at Burberry, Proenza Schouler and Dior Couture and more. Even Sofia Coppola fell under the spell, with a onetime capsule collection designed as an ode to Sedgwick in 1994. Sedgwick’s popularity reached fever pitch a few years back with the 2006 biopic Factory Girl starring Sienna Miller, whose own style was bound to Sedgwick’s at the time.

See what’s inside Katie Boland’s bag »

Katie Boland ranks high on our list of young Canadians worth keeping an eye on. In the past few years the Toronto-based actress had made waves with notable roles including one alongside Kat Dennings in the 2010 flick Daydream Nation and in her own web series Long Story, Short (which she wrote and co-produced, by the way). The striking brunette, who has much to be excited about with a role on the new CW series Reign, stopped by our offices to give us an uncensored look at what she carries in her everyday bag. A self-professed iPhone addict, who admits she can’t live without eyeliner and is constantly on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick, is refreshingly down to earth and surprisingly low-maintenance (lipstick, Visa and phone is all that she brings with her to red carpet events). We got up close and personal with Boland’s must-have items as she let us peruse through her purse.

Holt Renfrew has a brand new bag! Err, mag. Canada’s chicest retailer has returned to the world of high-class glossies with its stunning Fall 2013 catalogue, the first this luxe since Fall 2010. After a few seasons hiatus, photographers Max Abadian and Chris Nichols hit the streets of Montreal and Toronto with A-list models Liu Wen, Constance Jablonski, Kati Lescher, Alex Lundqvist and Noah Mills. Covered by Nescher in a crimson structured Dolce & Gabbana dress, the book features OMG-worthy looks from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Tom Ford and more.

For a sneak peek of what you can drool over when the book hits the pavement on September 3, flip through this covetable selection of photos. But pick those chins up off the floor ladies, we’ve got first dibs on that ridiculously amazing Acne colour-blocked bomber.


With the September issues hitting the stands, the seasonal change is just around the corner. The unsought transition of summer to fall is aided only by an exciting new set of trends that give our weepy hearts something to look forward to. And if the thought of a new fall wardrobe has you seeing dollar signs fear not. Fall’s fresh new colour palette of pink, grey, black and white and must-have looks (think leather, print and plaid) are sure to have you pulling out pieces you already own, so why wait? The new trends are ripe for the picking. We’re here to show you how to rock them for the final days of summer and beyond.

I find it a bit tricky to get to my corner lashes when applying mascara. How can I reach every single lash?
I’ve certainly jabbed the inner corners of my eyes a handful of times when trying to get mascara on my corner lashes, leaving a mess of mascara smudges behind. (It’s even worse when it ruins a carefully applied eye makeup look.) Mascara junkies rejoice, because Avon Mega Effects Mascara ($12, has a very different brush that is the solution to your corner-lash woes. The adjustable ergonomic wand allows you to line up the brush with your lashes from the front, instead of from the side, so you can apply mascara to each and every lash. If you still feel you can’t get to the corner lashes, turn the brush so that it’s perpendicular to your lash line to brush on the mascara with the end of the wand.


See Kristen Stewart’s style evolution »

It doesn’t take being a Twihard to be a fan of Kristen Stewart’s style. Since starring in her breakout role as Bella Swan in the first Twilight installment back in 2008, Stewart has gone from awkward late teen to high fashion mainstay.

Known for her decidedly anti-glam approach, the actress has been known to turn heads on the red carpet, only to change out of her heels or outfit right after posing for photos. As such, Kristen Stewart’s style varies heavily from day to night. When snapped at airports, in bars or with on-again-off-again boyfriend Robert Pattinson, she is often wearing her signature grunge combo of dark jeans, a basic T-shirt, grey toque hat, thick-rimmed glasses and Chuck Taylor sneakers. On the red carpet, she’s worn everything from Rodarte and Proenza Schouler to Balenciaga, the label for which she acts as campaign face. She’s even shared a front row with fashion staples such as Kate Moss and Rihanna, but she’s never one to flash the megawatt style. She favours skin-baring numbers by Zuhair Murad, whom she’s worn outside fashion shows and to film premieres. We feel as if we know her booty quite well.
