FW14: JUUN J / THOM BROWNE

I recently came across a Diana Vreeland quote saying “modern designers think they need ideas. But they are wrong. All they need is a point of view.” With the men’s collection less than a month away, I couldn’t help but try to figure out who these designers are. Considering my admiration for the rule-breakers (Nazir...
SHOPPING: 4 CLASSIC SCENTS

SHOPPING: 4 CLASSIC SCENTS

My personal tastes have singularly evolved towards sophisticated and unknown brands mostly because I’ve been wearing perfumes for quite some time now. I felt the need to explore new horizons. But with that being said, friends and readers have always asked me what to wear. So I’ve made a simple selection (all from Sephora and...

SHOPPING: COLORBLOCKED SWEATERS

It’s not because it’s cold outside that we can’t look smart! I’ve selected from my e-shop some bold and some more classic colorblocked sweaters designed by three independent designers.

SHOPPING: FJALLRAVEN / NATIVE SHOES

Seasons in New York are extremes. It’s no news for anyone living here unless you are me. I’m in a constant denial ! For instance, I naively thought that buying winter boots in August would help me prepare for and accept the cold, sleet, snowstorms, and the 5 hours of daylight but I dramatically failed...

Launched in 2006 in Montreal, Byron and Dexter, the two of the co-founders behind WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, have consciously...

The new Glacier collection elevates the traditional mountain climbing eyewear mixing classic silhouettes with...

INTERVIEW: NOAH WAXMAN

Noah Waxman is not your regular guy and definitely not your typical shoe designer. His background, beside his love for shoes, has nothing to do with fashion. He came out as a designer a bit by accident and ever since he’s been sincerely devoted to create a beautiful and contemporary shoe. In less than two...
