To make an even bigger impact on the Canadian market, a second store on Montreal’s trendy Sainte-Catherine Street West will open this winter. Two additional Toronto locations – in Toronto Eaton Centre and Yorkdale Shopping Centre – are rumored to be next.

COS, short for Collection of Style, launched in London in 2007. The retailer currently has 121 stores across 26 countries.

Kim Kardashian Will Seriously Discuss Female Objectification

Kim Kardashian is now adding public speaker to her resume. Kimmy-Kakes is all set to speak at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland on June 30 to talk selfies, social media, the family business and female objectification. *Record scratch*

Wait, what?

Yes, Kim Kardashian, the reality TV star who has made a career out of objectifying herself, will lecture people about the objectification of women. Now, keep in mind that this is the woman who showed us her you know what in Love magazine and insisted on oiling up and exposing her derrière for the cover of Paper magazine.

We’re assuming Kardashian will add some kind of feminist slant on the topic, but we can’t for the life of us imagine what that will be. Is catering to the male gaze for money a feminist act? We’ll let you decide. At the very least, it’ll be interesting to see how Mrs. West spins this one.

It has nearly been 15 years since the news of Savage Garden disbanding was splashed across the pages of our favourite pop publications, and, though time heals most wounds, we’re still hurting like it happened yesterday.

The subject recently came back into the spotlight when the duo were asked by their record label to compile a new album consisting of the most successful material from their existing catalogue. Despite the fact Darren Hayes now resides in Los Angeles and Daniel Jones in Las Vegas, they have not had direct contact for quite some time and are even opting to promote the new compilation separately.

Amy Schumer Is a ‘Trainwreck’ and She’s Heading to Australia

So, this just made our day.

This morning brought the announcement that Amy Schumer and Bill Hader will be coming to Australian shores in July to promote their new comedy flick, Trainwreck.

The exciting news was confirmed by the funny lady herself in a video where, amongst other things, she speaks of her love for both male and female Australians. This is not a drill. Amy thinks we are hot and our accents are hotter. So hide your kids, hide your wife, cause the new queen of comedy is coming for us all.

Directed by Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) the hilarious new comedy follows Amy as a commitment-phobic career woman who is forced to face her fears when she meets a good guy. (more…)

Etsy, the online marketplace for all things handmade, is turning 10 this year. To celebrate, the e-tailer is taking a trip down memory lane, exploring the trends that have dominated the website since it’s been in business. Today, it launched a special site to commemorate some of the biggest milestones from the past decade. The website currently boasts 1.4 million sellers and over 2 billion of their listings have been favorited by shoppers.

Of course, there has been an evolution in the kitschy handmade stuff Etsy sellers have peddled over time and the site has unveiled shoppers’ favorite items from each of the past 10 years. Mary Andrews, merchandising manager at Etsy, has some analysis on the progression of the website’s trends. “Trends develop in a much quicker environment on Etsy. Because designers are able to create in small batches, essentially launching new concepts with very little lead time, we observe a constant stream of new ideas,” she said. “That, combined with the engagement around social components like favoriting, it doesn’t take long for a new trend to naturally surface within a broad view, where it will generally take off. For example, ear adornments have been a longstanding jewelry trend that continue to take new forms. We’ve watched this trend evolve from cuffs into the increasingly popular climbers, double-sided studs and ear jackets.”
