Heads Up! Atelier New Regime Will Drop an Uplifting New Collection Tomorrow

Since its founding over a decade ago, Montreal’s Atelier New Regime – helmed by Creative Director Koku Awuye – has become a leader in exemplifying the potential in statement-making streetwear. The brand’s collections boast graphic-laden garments and accessories that explore concepts of identity and strength through considered and conscientious design. And this aspiration continues to grow; for example, the Fall 2020 line was its first to be produced in Portugal – which is renowned for maintaining a proud heritage of craft techniques.

Attention to detail is of utmost importance to Awuye, a graphic and web designer whose foray into fashion started with creating a selection of slogan t-shirts. He now oversees a globally-recognized brand with a boutique in one of Montreal’s busiest shopping districts. “It was a platform for self-expression,” he says of why he started with such apparel. “[The pieces] had messages that we thought were important to … Read the rest

Beautiful Romanian Women

Incest is not such a clear-cut matter as it has been made out to be over millennia of taboos. Compared to conformists, the percentage of non-conformists is very small. They are looked upon with suspicion or even contempt, as they refuse to be crippled by the herd mentality or bound down by popular beliefs and practices. Whether it is religion or life styles, they stand by what they believe in, despite what others think of them. They are often labeled asocial or antisocial. Since 1950 the national anthem and other songs have been sung by children throughout the country to begin the school day; by civil servants at flag-raising ceremonies; over the radio to begin and close broadcasting; in cinemas and on television; and at national day celebrations. Radio and television, government owned and controlled for much of the second half of the twentieth century, produced nationalizing programs as diverse … Read the rest

10 Best Body Butters to Help Your Skin Survive Winter

Bad news: we haven’t even reached the halfway point of winter. That means there’s still a whole lot of dry air indoors to contend with. But there is a way to combat the moisture-sucking conditions. It’s called body butter.

Sometimes mistaken for a novelty, body butters are actually a necessary step in any hydration routine. We spend so much time moisturizing our face, we often forget that the rest of our body needs love, too. Usually packed with ingredients like shea butter or oils (argan, jojoba, avocado to name a few), buttering up can help keep parched skin at bay, from our elbows to our feet. And thanks to their whipped texture, they’re a lot more fun to apply than traditional lotions.

Canadian Skincare Icon Elizabeth Grant on What She’s Learned After 72 Years (!) in Beauty

One of those brands is Elizabeth Grant Skin Care, founded in 1948 by Elizabeth Grant, during a time when women were rarely at the helm of a beauty brand. The … Read the rest

Vancouver-based Brand Adeera Now Offers Its Pieces Made-to-Order

After two successful pre-order drops last year, Vancouver-based brand Adeera has shifted to a made-to-order model; good news for anyone in the market for a little wardrobe pick-me-up these days.

Co-founders Emma Reynolds and Shannon Hall see the switch as an ideal extension of their label’s sustainably-minded approach. “We got a lot of messages saying that customers would love for us to open up the pre-orders again once they had closed,” says Reynolds. “We thought, why not make the [pieces] available so people can buy whenever they want? They’re still limited in the sense that the collections are only available until the next one launches.”

For now, Adeera’s selection includes romantic, bow-festooned separates including crop top and corset styles – silhouettes that possess coveted versatility in terms of their ability to dress up a look, or be dressed down by styling with something more casual. Reynolds notes that there’s … Read the rest
