Take a Trip to the Tropics with We Are Handsome’s Indhra Chaghoury and Jeremy Somers

We Are Handsome are masters at making us nostalgic for things we might never have even experienced, and here they are doing it again for Resort 2012. “The Enchanted” is an enigmatic and mysterious collection featuring six new prints, each dug from designers Indhra Chagoury and Jeremy Somers’ personal photographic archives.

While the photographs have probably undergone a little reimagining, we’re happy to believe that at least one of the design duo has stared an assertive eagle directly in the eyeballs if it makes for a print this magical. The Guardian features the same somewhat intimidating eagle that caused a stir at MBFWA earlier this year, rearing its head on a panel one-piece swimsuit and, somewhat more cheekily, on the rear of a string bikini bottom.

Other prints draw on Chagoury and Somer’s love of all things that make you want to run away to an exotic location filled with enchanting sunsets and animals that are either very beautiful or very dangerous. The Messenger is a flight path of birds illuminated by a myriad of greenery, while The Calypso is a moment captured by Somers as he was just casually basking on the shores of the tropical Philippines glimpsing a yacht sailing into the horizon.

New shapes for the collection include a cut-away one piece, butterfly bikini and tie-front bikini alongside cult classics like the scoop one piece and string bikini. But with prints this pretty they could feature on a Borat mankini and we’d still probably consider wearing it.

Yorkdale’s Haute Wheels Makes a Downtown Toronto Fashion Delivery

Sure, food trucks are cool — what with their indulgent ability to satisfy your bacon, tacos, and poutine cravings at the flip of a parking brake — but do you know what feeds our consumer cravings even more? Fashion trucks.

Starting today, Yorkdale will be pandering to our shopping appetites and rolling out a brand new, gourmet fashion truck, stocked with hand-picked merchandise from many of the coveted and first-to-Canada brands (like kate spade new york, Ted Baker London, and LOFT) that are arriving at Yorkdale on November 16. That's right! This is street style at a seriously street level.

Other iconic and innovative retailers such as Ann Taylor (which recently opened at the Eaton Centre), Club Monaco, Diesel, Holt Renfrew, Microsoft, and The North Face will also be hitting the road with the Yorkdale Fashion Truck, which you can track under the twitter handle @YorkdaleStyle or the hashtag #YKDfashiontruck.

But there's more. As well as delivering decadent courses of designer swag to the downtown core, shoppers that make purchases at the fashion truck will receive the free side of a $10 Royal Bank Plaza gift card that can be used at any of Royal Bank Plaza’s 21 stores. Customers can also enter to win a $200 Oxford Gift Card or a $1,000 gift card from Brookes Brothers.

Are your taste buds tingling yet? Then check it all out when it kicks off from 11 a.m. today at the Royal Bank Plaza, 200 Bay St, Toronto.

ASOS Bags Markus Lupfer for Its Latest Collaboration

ASOS has done it again – and by this we mean that they’ve only gone and bagged yet another hot collaboration with none other than fashion designer Markus Lupfer. For those of you who aren’t familiar with London-based Lupfer’s work (those of you who have been residing on Mars perhaps), he started his career upon graduating from London’s University of Westminster in 1997 when his final year collection was instantly bought by the London boutique Koh Samui. He went on to regularly showcase at London Fashion Week, aided by his British Fashion Council New Generation win, and with awards such as Designer of the Year, and his appointment as Design Director for Spanish fashion house Armand Basi, the rest his fashion history.

Markus Lupfer for ASOS

Lupfer is known for artful takes on everyday basics, and perhaps this is the reason why ASOS has appointed him as a guest designer for its latest capsule leather collection. Expect hot skaters and jackets in a colour palette ranging from black and navy to orange. The best bit is that although the capsule collection is high fashion designed, it’s not high fashion priced. So, these edgy pieces are set to make the perfect pre-Christmas treat without breaking the bank.

A High-Street Favourite

This isn’t the first high-street chain that Lupfer has been associated with, as he’s also previously created a womenswear range for Whistles, as well as a childrenswear range for Debenhams. His current ASOS collection will, however, feel a lot more high fashion than his previous high-street collabs, simply due to the fact that it's leather based, which always makes for a lovely luxury feel.

Meet Your New CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Winner: Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman

Last night, Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman was awarded the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, which pairs him with a business mentor and includes a cash prize of $300,000.

Runners-up Jennifer Meyer Maguire and Tabitha Simmons will also get the gift of mentorship, as well as $100,000.

Chait makes the kind of high-quality knitwear that's almost unbearably appealing, like a kitten — one would use words like "chunky," "cashmere," and "cozy" to describe it, so you can see how his beard is really brand-consistent. Cuddliness should always be recognized and rewarded.

The Elder Statesman is based out of LA, carried by Barneys, and really hipster-y, which isn't unusual for a Fashion Fund-recognized brand. 

Joseph Altuzarra, Billy Reid, Sophie Theallet, Alexander Wang, Rogan, Doo.Ri, Trovata, and Proenza Schouler were all previous winners of the prize, maybe the most effective launching pad for young American designers today.

Toni Garrn Looks Weird on the Cover of Vogue Germany’s December Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Germany Dec 2012 - Toni Garrn

I think most of us can agree that Toni Garrn is a beautiful woman. But, she just did not bring it for the cover of Vogue Germany’s December issue. Somehow the picture she teased us with on Twitter back in October is more dynamic than the final cover shot. Her “dead eyes” or “droopy eyes” as forum members seem so fond of calling them, and her dull facial expression kind of ruin the shot and draw all the attention away from her frou frou Alexander McQueen dress.

“I feel like she makes every picture she's in a carbon copy of everything else she's been in,” Psylocke lamented. “The concept itself is nice for the festive season and it would probably have looked okay with someone more expressive.”

Jelavender posted, “The green masthead is a bit random. The model looks lifeless. There is nothing about this cover that screams 'Christmas mood.'”

“Yeah, this cover might have been a lot better if she was a bit more excited looking. I am not convinced,” TREVOFASHIONISTO commented.

First American Vogue, and now German Vogue. What’s with the sad and droopy December covers this year?! If ever there's a time for a smile or a glimmer of excitement in a model's facial expression, it's now.
