All Saints has been one of my favourite brands for as long as I could remember, known for their work with premium leather and outerwear, most notably its iconic biker jacket. All Saints expresses attitude and individuality through its deep-rooted links to music, and its film division – AllSaints Studios. All Saints approach to everything they produce from garments to film is true and in sync to their rockstar appeal. Staying consistent and true to your brand is admirable and keeping the content fresh and innovative at the same time is sometimes unheard of.
With the first day of summer shortly passing, I had the opportunity to document and build content for All Saints showcasing some of my favourite styles from their S/S 17 Collection. It’s extremely important to me to aim to work along side with brands that I believe in. Not only just aesthetically but the story and the identity of the brand must all tie together. Helping me put together I summoned a couple of my favourite faces Dietrich & Yasmine.

Temperatures drop and coats come out, reasons why I love fall. But sadly here in Quebec it’s crazy how quick that turns to the dead of winter. So us jacket lovers got to flex our fits while we can.
You can say I’m romantic about my outerwear. A good coat is hard to come by, especially when you’re picky, have taste, but at the same time not into splurging if not necessary.
But when you find a gem, you find a gem. It’s just that simple. The Athletic Retro LA Kings jacket is definitely a gem in my books. Black, low-key, flattering fit, soft simmer. There’s no way I could pass up this piece, jackets are pieces that always try to never let go of. I surely will keep this bad boy in the arsenal of outerwear for some time.
When it comes to black denim I tend to keep it to fairly minimal slim silhouette. Style is to be explored, its always good to experiment with various styles you and try expand your range of style. The Broderick Slouch Skinny by Hudson Jeans has a great deal of unique characteristics that are far from my personal norm. Such as the two front zip pockets on each side of the hip and the light grey distressed pattern through out the jean. I find my self rocking them more often then I thought. I guess Hudson can is teaching your boy some new tricks.HA!
Let me start this off by saying in my last post about layers I might have jinxed myself. When documenting my time with a few friends for the post, the weather was a breath of fresh air literally. It was a great relief from having to deal with constant blizzards and deathly colds. But what are we back to dealing with now? Snowfall. On the plus side it hasn’t been as cold also the city is gorgeous when the snow falls moderately, it could be worse. Mother Nature needs to bring back the warm temperatures. I think we’ve all suffered enough.
Never the less the layer game is still in full effect; there really is no other way around it. This time around I played around with proportion and print. Those who know me can testify that I’m a fond of prints and textures. For me everything lies in the details, from how a shirt drapes off my waist to the fridge edge details on he 5-inch cuff of my jeans.
No matter the ensemble there is no substitute to effective detailing, no matter how insignificant you may think any detail may seem. An outfit doesnt always need to be loud and aggressive to speak or grab an individuals attention. Just like many things less can be more and style is no exception to this.
Montreal is in the awkward transition stage between fall and winter, why is it awkward? You really never know what the weather will be like from day to day one day may have a bit of a chill and the next way too much sun and others will have your teeth chattering. Weather lady isn’t really doing her job right, it’s as if she doesn’t know how to tell the truth anymore and is just as confused as everyone else throwing up temperatures that are way too misleading.
The crewneck sweatshirt is one of my favorite go to pieces for this awkward transitional period. It can be styled over a collar, even throw in a tie if you like to give it that sprezzatura touch. It’s a way good way to mesh a bit of ruggedness into an otherwise bland outfit, drawing from the unpretentious end of the work wear playbook. The grey crewneck is an all time classic it never fails, just be sure to ditch the gym bag and whistles.
“Sweaters are a versatile item of clothing and can be worn on top of almost any outfit. Sports sweaters, especially hoodies, are often worn on tops of sports kit while traveling to or from a sports ground. Sweaters can be worn with a dress shirt underneath (and optionally a tie), which has the advantage of allowing the wearer to have the option of removing the sweater when it is uncomfortably warm and still looking presentable in many situations. Layering and the ease with which it allows for temperature regulation is a major benefit of the sweater as an article of clothing. ”
