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

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

This may come as a surprise to anyone who grew up on YouTube beauty gurus and Instagram makeup tutorials, but there was a time when the launch of a new beauty brand wasn’t a weekly occurrence. While we love keeping up with all of the newness in the industry, and reporting on the wide range of brands and products available for consumers to shop, we’d be remiss not to take a moment to appreciate the beauty brands — and brand founders — who have helped shape the industry into what it is today. There are, after all, only a select few beauty brands who have truly stood the test of time and remained relevant and innovative through the years.

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

25 Totally Random Items I Plan to Wear All the Time

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

People always hate on winter, but my closet right now is proof that the cold isn’t so bad (spoken by a true Californian). It’s the season that puts my creativity to the test: I love that I can basically wear whatever I want, from any season, as long as I layer. I guess that’s one of the perks of living in SoCal.

What do my online shopping bags look like, you ask? Well, they’re usually full of everything, from lightweight tees to silky two-piece sets and cozy jackets that I just can’t quit. And even though I tend to fall into a colorless rut this time of year, I can honestly say that everything in my current rotation is … Read the rest

Ready or Not: This Revealing Trend Is About to Freak Out the Fashion World

No, seriously—whether you’re ready or not, this micro-trend is swiftly marking its territory as one of the hottest styles to try this spring and summer season. The trend we speak of is better seen than described, but if we had to try it’s basically any article of clothing that slinkily ties and wraps around a bare midriff. These wraparound ties can be connected to a top, skirt, or even swimwear, which we’re anticipating seeing a lot more of come summer 2020.

This trend was unsurprisingly very prevalent in the ’90s (which you can see via the Prada F/W 92 runway image below) when skin-baring silhouettes were pretty much all anyone cared about. As we encroach on warmer weather, we’re predicting that this micro-trend is about to make it big once again in this decade. Influencers have already started wearing it and retailers are already hopping on board. If you ask … Read the rest

A post shared by MOB Beauty (@themobbeauty)

It’s no secret that the beauty industry is guilty of unleashing an immense amount of landfill-bound plastic on the planet. So when four industry veterans — one of them being the legendary Victor Casale, founding chemist of MAC Cosmetics — joined forces to create MOB Beauty, the brand’s packaging was placed under the microscope in terms of its environmental impact. Officially launched to the world on January 21st, all of MOB Beauty’s packaging is made using post-consumer recycled materials that can either be home composted or easily tossed in the recycling bin. But the brand didn’t stop there when it came to reducing its footprint. MOB Beauty is built around the concept of customizable makeup palettes (the brand has two palette sizes … Read the rest

These Are the Best Places to Buy Lingerie and Why

Lingerie shopping can be so personal. I know for me, it takes a lot for a new bra to impress since I’ve tried way too many uncomfortable or unsupportive options. Recently, I found a bra that was so comfortable it totally changed the way I thought of my whole collection. But when I was talking to my friends, I realized that everyone shops for lingerie with such different ideas in mind. For instance, my smaller-chested friends are always showing off their adorably dainty bralettes, while my larger-chested friends wouldn’t dare to invest in a bra without a supportive underwire.

To make the whole lingerie shopping experience much easier, it all comes down to knowing what you’re looking for in your undergarments, which is why I’m breaking down the best places to buy different types of lingerie. From the site with the best lace pieces to where to … Read the rest
