Lacoste Celebrates A Milestone: The Crocodile Turns 85

Lacoste comes from the roots and mechanical brain of a particular athlete, René Lacoste, over 85 years ago. He was a tennis player who used to have to wear long-sleeved shirts and even ties while he was playing in the heat, running reactively towards his next shot. He realized that there was a better way to stay cool, look presentable and with this idea in mind, brought something new to tennis back in 1926, the invention of the polo shirt. Nicknamed ‘The Crocodile’ from other tennis players for his skill and based on what we have read, biting style on[Read More]

Roots Canada Brings A 4D Experience With Their Northern Light Event

What can you do you innovate the fashion show to make it more of an experience? You work with technology. But, also, you bring together music and culture into the roots of what you are doing to make it more of a performance than a fashion show. Roots Canada accomplished just that with their Northern Light event at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. We were greeted to our first ‘coat check’ event of the season, as the weather had us thinking about warmth, flannel and overcoats. We levelled up to the next floor and the room opened up[Read More]

Training Yourself To Enjoy A Weekend in Montreal

Montreal is a popular but so vastly different city than major cities around it, like Toronto and Ottawa. The city is built so beautifully with elevation changes, historic buildings and a particular focus on architecture and spacing. What I really liked specifically was the ‘of-course’ mentality they have with architecture and design in the city. I feel like bad design dies on the drafting table before the design is even complete. Of course we should have beautiful buildings for people to love working and living in Of course we should have large foyers, people have to walk through them Of course this building[Read More]
