Greta Constantine S/S'11

Greta Constantine showcased their Spring/Summer 2011 collection at LG Toronto Fashion Week. Let me first comment on their take on the greek goddess. When you think greek goddess, what comes to mind? Togas. White togas. Kinda takes you to a college party doesn't it? 

Mais non! Not Greta Constantine! The duo made their pieces so light and airy, I feel like just by looking at it, I feel like I'm by the Mediterranean breeze, not the need to down a few shots. The draping and flowy-ness on the dresses makes it such a versatile dress. I could wear it to the resort and just lay by the beach with my bikini on underneath, or glam it up for night wear. But seriously, draping. It's a Greta Constantine thing. It kind of reminds me of their S/S'06. But like I said again, they're draping obsessed. Doesn't matter to me, I still think it's fabulous! 

I like how in this collection it's a very earthy feel to it. The nudes make it very neutral, and if you're not feeling the nudes, the colour choice is very subtle. It's not a loud look at me, I'm an eccentric attention seeker! colour scheme, rather it's a reserved kind of chic that people can't help but to look at you. 

Favourite look? The first picture. Note how cropping out the middle section and making them into two pieces looks as if she's wearing a belt. I thought it was kind of fun, especially since how the middle belt trend blew up. The middle belt is to emphasize your waistline... this shows it off, which does emphasize it! I thought it was genius.

I know that Lanvin isn't the only one who loves H&M. Like many others, I also love Lanvin loving H&M. Because for the past month or so, since the announcement, I've been highly anticipating and counting down the days until nov. 20. That's the day that Lanvin for H&M hits all major H&M locations!

Look at it! It looks so good already. And today, I came across a single photo that pretty much made my day. The preview to the collection isn't out until nov. 2, however, this picture is floating around, and it definitely is believed that it is a sneak peek at the campaign for Lanvin.

Look, it's Natasha Poly (far right). And for those who have seen the Natasha Poly commentary on the collection on the H&M website, her hair and makeup match the one in the video! And in the picture above, look how it matches the model in the far left? Excited? Beyond words. 

Can we say ultra chic? Such versatile pieces. 

You best believe I'm going to be camping out in front of my H&M. Can't wait!

Oh Canadian !

I was looking through the different clients F4F has represented, and I see the name Travis Taddeo. So I check him out, and needless to say, I am in love with his work. The stuff I've seen so far. Here's a look:

Those are from his S/S'10 collection called Vive la Revolution. I thought it was absolutely gorgeous. My goal is to discover more Canadian designers - even better, within Montreal.

It's Been a While

So it's been a while since my last post, since my summer, so much has happened.

Regardless, I have now relocated myself to a new city with new opportunities! I am currently in Montreal, Quebec - a city that surprisingly much different than Toronto (even though it's still a city)


I have now found myself yet another internship, except this time, I'm working with a fashion PR company called, Fashion 4 Freedom. Just went to the first meeting on Saturday, very exciting stuff! We have a show coming up to promote Filthy Haanz during Halloweekend. That weekend is going to be hella amazing!

Speaking of Halloweekend, does anyone else have a costume idea yet? I think I have mine, it's going to be - well, let's just say interesting.

Got myself a job (regardless of the fact that I don't speak french, but I understand for the most part) at Forever 21. Excited to say the least.

I need to be venue hopping soon. Gotta find some gorgeous places to host future events. I refuse to conform! ...but isn't non-conformity conforming to the rebels? (clearly I'm thinking about my classes too much) How done am I with the same clubs being done time and time again?

I'm going to paint my nails grey now. My nail polishes never stay on, I think it's because of my laziness I don't base coat.
