Lululemon goes high fashion with Roksanda collab
Working out (or pretending to work out) never looked so good. Lululemon unveiled their luxe collaboration with famed British designer Roksanda Ilincic. The collection includes the usual suspects – leggings with matching sports bras and zip ups (with Roksanda voluminous sleeves) but the showstopper is the Infiniti Coat, an all-in-one puffer, trench, vest, and raincoat that can be worn an impressive 32 different ways. Designed using two colourways, the pieces are bound to sell out, especially those in the Roksanda signature raspberry hue. In select stores now.

Did you know Tiffany’s makes the NBA Trophy? Neither did we.
When you think of Tiffany, you definitely think of diamonds, blue boxes, and breakfast. A big gold sporting trophy most likely won’t spring to mind at first thought. Since we’re fans of learning something new, especially in the luxury world, we welcomed the knowledge that Tiffany & Co. produced the Larry O’Brian NBA trophy, and even got visual proof by seeing it in the flesh at the Tiffany flagship store following the season start of our very own NBA Champions, the Toronto Raptors. The evening celebrated the new #TiffanyMens collection with friend of the brand, star player Serge Ibaka of the Toronto Raptors.
There is a Prada X Adidas sneaker in the works
Just announced or ‘leaked,’ Adidas will hit the high seas collaborating with Prada on a sailing sneaker. There is no official imagery and very little information. We had to Google what a Sailing sneaker was. What is known is that there will be two colourways and hit the $350 price point. What we do know is that it’s bound to be a super cool collab.
Canada has a new vegan coat brand
Sustainability is top of mind for many consumers and fashion brands these days. Fur is out and even goose down is being debated. Enter Woodpecker, a cruelty-free and vegan line of outerwear that makes some updates to the Canadian parka. Created by veteran coat designer Will Poho, the brand wanted to create chic outerwear with an ethical twist. Staying true to its Canadian roots, each garment comes with its own unique animal totem badge including The Bear, The Wolf, and naturally The Beaver. Made with a bio-based fiber called Sustans, you need to feel it to be believe it.
