Versace Men's Spring/Summer 2015

The Versace Men's Spring/Summer 2015 campaign is a nod to nostalgia. This advert exudes opulence and sensuality and features a wardrobe of mesh tops, hand-painted leather jackets and the label's signature Medusa head chains,

Versace's latest campaign reminds us of founder Gianni Versace's Miami residency and sets a luxe and tropical tone for the Spring/Summer 2015 season.

Trout Rainwear 2015 Press Preview

On Monday November 24th, THE BRUNETTES had the privilege of attending the Trout Rainwear 2015 Press Preview. Held at Gladstone Hotel's Ryerson Artspace, the event was hosted by Charise Garcia of Kaeru Communications and featured a gallery-inspired layout.

Trout Rainwear is founded by Ashley McDonald and Jenn Lancefield whose garments are designed in Toronto and made in Vancouver. The creative duo believe that “women no longer have to choose between looking good and dressing for the weather" and that their consumers can easily have both. 

Their rainwear range is made using custom and high quality Italian fabrics that are 100% waterproof without skipping out on style. In addition to their womenswear range, the designers introduced their first-ever menswear model that will be available for purchase in January of 2015. 

After taking in the preview’s gallery space—a set-up that included suspended raincoat canvases—THE BRUNETTES sipped on some wine and indulged in raincoat sugar cookies courtesy of Hello Baked.

Trout Rainwear’s affinity for style and function turns rainy days into unexpected style opportunities.

Aleks Susak Spring/Summer 2015

Last Wednesday, THE BRUNETTES headed over to 99 Sudbury, one of Toronto’s hippest, studio, event venues in the city, to check out the runway debut of the new, Canadian, womenswear label Aleks Susak.

The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was presented to over 250 members of the industry, including members of the media, industry, celebrities, and THE BRUNETTES, of course.

Denim, leather, and silk textiles were used in contrast throughout the line to express femininity and strength, while original, hand-painted art—incorporated into many of the designs by Susak and her artist mother, Mila Susak—highlighted individuality.

THE BRUNETTES @ the East Room Launch

Last night THE BRUNETTES travelled over to Toronto’s east end to celebrate the launch of East Room, a membership office space that gives professionals and creatives a hip, collaborative environment to work and offers its members more than just a desk, but also a place to network, host meetings, and grow their businesses.

Guests at the party included celebrities, media, and many young professionals from the complete gamut of creative fields.  Oysters and lobster rolls, plus a selection of bar-rail drinks were served throughout the night, giving attendees all the sustenance they needed to explore the many offices, meeting rooms and common areas of East Room’s stylish studio space.

Thomas Bálint Spring/Summer 2015

Bold stripes and pops of vibrant blood orange were signature trademarks of the Thomas Bálint Spring/Summer 2015 collection that was recently presented at World MasterCard Fashion Week.

The relatively unisex line focused on slouchy, androgynous pieces with a modern aesthetic and look that is tailored intentionally to be unstructured. Always one of THE BRUNETTES’ favourite collections at WMCFW, Michael Thomas Bálint never fails to present an evolved point of view with his take on contemporary menswear.
