It's this kind of day...

Hi All You Model Citizens! Here is a visual treat for the way I feel right now: cosy, warm, and enjoying the briskness of fall ( in combination with a roaring fire in my woodstove).

Bottega Veneta Spring 2011

Bottega Veneta's new collection for Spring 2011 was so surprising to me. In a good way. In a practical way. In an "I love it!" kind of way. How sleek and urban of them to choose showing this kind of collection.

Clad in black, these photos from the show above convey the shows ease and elegance of the show. From oversized shapeless pieces, to sportier designs, I love seeing the great dropped waists and modern silhouettes. And my FAVOURITE part was the flat sandals.

I am so happy to see that effortless ease in sport chic being embraced on the runway. Women are having a say in their clothes these days and it is fantastic to see it it reflected in this calibre of show.

New Jon Klar in Model Citizens Today!

Jon Klar is a Toronto based Jewelry designer. He studied and mastered the art of Design in Southern California (his place of origin). Exquisite jewelry is made by him by combining various materials with sterling silver. He creates magic with sterling silver and the play of colors, in the disguise of jewelry. He has perfected a way to transform anodized aluminum into beautiful works of art using his own unique technique to hand color the aluminum. Jon studied at the National Ballet school of Canada and travelled around the world as a performing artist, where in India he met his wife Roshan. Together Jon and Roshan built their studio in Toronto, where the jewellery is designed and made by hand.

Aftermath of Igor

This was the view from our front window post-hurricane Igor. The whole area was a bit purple. A bit eerie but hopeful. Good Luck to to all in other areas of Newfoundland who have been hardest hit.

Man Fashion

I feel like I never feature the boys enough. Man fashion is often uncharted territory for most retailers but for MC, man fashion is often the most fun stuff to merch and buy. Guys have a sense of humour and sensibility all rolled into one.

Here is my take on the western/leather band look. Ian looks fantastic in a small 80's leather jacket and cowboy, slim jeans and a vintage distressed leather belt. The best part is, this look (at MC) costs under 100.00 to achieve! From the jeans to the jacket, this is the best bang for you buck.

Until next time!
