Philip Sparks for Danier Spring 2012 Men’s Accessories Collection

It was exciting news when Danier announced its partnership with Canadian designer Philip Sparks for a men’s accessories collection. A couple weeks ago I was invited by Brill Communications to preview this new collaboration. The collection is ranging from iPad cases, brief cases, weekend bags, wallets and much more.

“We started with a nostalgic idea of travel and how people once boarded airplanes and train cars with a wardrobe of carryalls, duffle bags and cases, “ says Philip. “ Then we updated that mix to include iPad cases and backpacks filled with extra pockets and compartments for contemporary travelers who expect the functionality of five bags in one.”

This is just what you would expect from Philip Sparks, it is a stylish, well detailed and multi purposed collection for the debonair gentlemen on the go. I travel a lot and was really happy to see this new collection and very excited for its introduction into Danier stores across Canada this spring because I am planning to grab a couple of these pieces for myself!



Marie Saint Pierre Fall/Winter 2012

Marie Saint Pierre has been a master leading designer almost 25 years now.  She is very well known for her Fashion-Forward pieces with well-crafted, detailed and unique colours. She was one of the most anticipated designers showing this season at Montreal Fashion Week. The energy was quite high as you entered the runway, that had very cold and lurry music. A girl began spinning on a machine at the beginning of the runway and then it all began.

She started it off with short film choreography, featuring a muse as a mannequin showing the divine new collection. The show was very dark with lots of black with the odd pops of colour that included this yellow dress that had a kind of black cropped jacket that was almost looked bird like. There a lot of ruffled pieces that looked like feathers.   It was an impressive collection that captivated me and everyone around me during the show. “A true artist” most people would say as we were all leaving and chatting about day one.

Mélissa Nepton Fall/Winter 2012

Melissa Nepton is one of those promising designers with a big future that has just emerged onto the scene. We first saw her when she was on the TV show “La Collection,” and was voted into the finals by the judges.  Then she went on as an exchange student to the École Nationale Supérieure des arts Décoratifs in Paris, from there she went on to become a designer and buyer later in Montreal.

I was very excited to see this Fall/Winter 2012 collection by Melissa. Such a great mix of textures and big collars, her wool and knits where just MAGNIFIQUE.  We saw such a great selection of Grey, White, Carmel and a little turquoise.  Noelly (AKA miss SLY) said “The silk ponytail sported by the models almost had an equestrian feel to it all.” Also the great mix of hush puppies foot wear put it all together well.

Fashion/ Marni for H&M


“I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints,” explains Consuelo Castiglioni. “As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements.” This is going to be a very exciting collection.


It was just like yesterday people were lined up the day before for the Versace for H&M collection. On March 8th 2012,  Marni at H&M collection will be released worldwide! This collection will have womenswear, menswear, jewelry, shoes, bags, and scarves, it will be available at 260 H&M stores worldwide and online


“For women, the colors are vivid and the prints are bold, be they African inspired or simpler color blocks. The silhouettes are all Marni staples, with full pleated skirts, dresses, cropped trousers and jacquard knit, and fabrics range from silk to crisp cotton poplin. For men, the colors and fabrics are softened for a relaxed take on menswear staples that is truly Marni. The use of print is subtle, often as a lining or as a contrast detail for shirts, the silhouette a modern and relaxed take on masculine classics.”

Lucian Matis Spring/Summer 2011


Lucian Matis show night was just brilliant and breathtaking. I always love seeing his shows because I always see a hint of McQueen, but in his own unique Matis way. His collection was so well put together and you can really see how well he knows a woman’s body and how the pieces flow to show off the woman’s amazing shape. From all the Fashion weeks up to now and all the shows for Spring/Summer 2010 we are really seeing some really bold colours and I am really excited to see how it will all pan out. I hope you enjoy the video and pictures below and fall in love with this BRILLIANT collection. Also we cannot forget Candice and Alison  luxury events always know how to put on a great event or show!!
