A Mackage Coat Fits The Fashion Forward Woman

Mackage is a Quebec, Canada success story.  Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy are the design duo behind this label.  Having started their fashion careers at the young age of 20, their talent, eye for trend- setting looks, and attention to fit and detail, continues to impress all.

The Mackage line is well-known to fashionistas in Canada and US for its durability (you do get what you pay for) as outerwear and for fantastically cut leathers. Mackage has no age.  It is made for the fashion-forward, svelte woman. The line is renowned for creating silhouettes that are sexy, sleek and highly  sought after.

We at W4W Toronto own several jackets and coats by Mackage, and as they get more loved up every year, they look and feel even better.  They are a Canadian label that oozes style.  An edgy, yet classy alternative to the oh so staid winter coat and the superior tayloring and fit make a Mackage purchase worth every penny.
Check out all their gorgeous outerwear on their website.

Buy:  If you can get to Montreal you’ll save up to 50% off after Christmas up until June.  Otherwise wait for Holt Renfrew and Aritzia to have their January sell-offs on Mackage items.

A Reason to Party on Thursdays This Season…

Cheval_Thurs

Never a disappointment, schizophrenic Cheval is steadily proving to be a consistent party spot – once you get on the guestlist and arrive early (or at least KNOW somebody at the door)!  Every Thursday will be a different fashion event.  This Thursday, pre-shop at MODA and save $20% off, see their fashion show, and party at Cheval all in one evening.

Very worthwhile; the music is hot, and so are the people.

Linda Loudermilk – The Eco Conscious Designer’s Style Offerings

Linda Loudermilk is passionate about the earth and its people, and she is making her mark on the eco-movementwith stylish products that inspire people to “think about the world and how we can make it a better place for all inhabitants”.

Many years ago she began researching and experimenting with products that were sustainable while still modeling on the runways of Paris.  What Loudermilk discovered was a world of design that could be blended with eco-responsibility in an practical, yet exciting way.

She trademarked the term “luxury eco™”, becoming the first designer to create a luxury+eco lifestyle brand under one umbrella.  Guilt-free organic fibers and eco conscious fabrics are what her line of clothing are all about.

We love Linda Loudermilk’s Fall 2008 Collection

A sexy lace dress, fitted black suit, and an event dress.  Makes all those hours in the gym and watching
what we eat totally worth it.

Not available in Toronto, but you can get it in Quebec:

Why We Love Winter in Toronto…

Yes it gets cold in Toronto, but not colder than a New York winter, and certainly not as blustery cold as Chicago.  So with that in mind, the night life never ends for those willing to step out in their stylish best.

We love winter in Toronto because we get to wear fabulous looking coats, the following being prime examples.

Winter Coats 2008/2009

Flattering, warm enough, and practical for getting in and out of the car.

…and deliciously sexy shoes and boots that set off any outfit

Shoes and boots 2008/2009

Bring a couple pairs to the club, so that you can switch up when your feet start hurting!

…and of course they are all in your basic black! The only color for winter that matters.  These pieces are worth the money, because you will able to style and profile in them for several winters.

Halloween Costumes and Christian Louboutin

Running out of time to make your Halloween ultimate costume?  Never fear, there are enough party stores in Toronto to give you what you need.

What about the ultimate fantasy costume?  What if you got a dominatrix outfit and paired it with these Christian Louboutin killer heels?

The super stiletto heel, dominatrix spikes, and polished black leather are the hottest item not available in time for Halloween, and not for those without celebrity and financial status.  The Rodarte Christian Louboutin’s were featured in black, gold, and white (all with the trademark red soles) during Rodarte’s 2008 fall fashion show.  No word on when they will be available online if at all, but one can only dream of the possibilities of next year’s Halloween outfit.

I’m sure Ms. Jackson already has her outfit together!

Lanvin’s brand of feminine luxury…

Everything old is new again.  Lanvin takes designs of the old, refines them, adds a twist and makes them new again.  The Spring Summer 2009 Womens Wear Collection has shockingly bright colors interspersed with more neutral tones, and fabulously intricate fabrics.  Nothing we can see ourselves in but, at least the designs are  easier on the eyes than the distracting christmas jewelery and designs of I don’t know…say…Dries Van Noton

Lanvin in Toronto:

50 Bloor Street West

Holt Renfrew Yorkdale – Get a free Juzd bag…

JUZD (pronounced “juiced” or ‘joost”) is the planet’s first bamboo designer label, and most recently picked up by Holt Renfrew. We are talking Ed Hardy and Von Dutch meets eco-consciousness, take a good thing and make it the same but better. Torontonian Jing Liu is the creator of Juzd clothing and the lead designer for the urban streetwear line. “I just woke up one day and decided start it up and just focus on doing this”, states Liu on the origin of Juzd in April 2007.  The computer programmer turned designer, came up with the idea for Juzd, after repeatedly hearing the media reports on “juiced” up baseball players who injected steroids. Although aggression is part of the brand identity of Juzd, there’s an element of nature and environmental friendliness to the line. “Organic aggression”, Liu says, is what the brand represents.

Interesting to note, Liu has no formal training in fashion or design; no work experience in the business, nor an art background, but has managed to find a niche product that a store such as Holt Renfrew is willing to back.   Nice going, but the proof is in the pudding, and to touch, feel, and wear a Juzd “Tee” the customer will have the final say on if it beats the pants off an Ed Hardy “Tee”.

TIFF 2008 Style

New Tie-Ups belts have been spotted on some very chic Toronto hipsters during the first day of TIFF.  Made in Italy, they are cut to fit, come in 12 colors, are washable, 100 % recyclable, “resist UV rays, saltwater, bacteria and tortion”.  Did we mention that they are also pretty?  Furthermore they are pretty hard to get your hands on, so if you will be visiting Italy, Greece, Spain, Australia, or Saudi Arabia in the next few weeks, buy some and sell them on eBay.

Word is, you will have to wait till December to buy them in Toronto, and then only at select stores.  Email us for details.
