FALL SHOPPING LIST

Balenciaga

FALLING FOR IT

My personal wish list for fall is inspired by some of my favourite shows. Here’s what’s on my radar while shopping this season.

Balenciaga

The printed dress by Balenciaga

The perfect no-brainer dress – throw it on and go everywhere from a key corporate meeting to a cocktail party at ONE.

Balmain

The bold shoulder jacket by Balmain

I’ve been searching for a defined shoulder jacket everywhere this season and all I come up with are boyfriend or tux jackets with sensible shoulder pads. I want something extreme – no luck so far but I’ll keep looking.

The sexy mini dress by Balmain

What’s not to love about this killer rock and roll dress? Plus, Madonna wears it with a pair of thigh-high Christian Louboutin boots in her Celebration video. I would wear this to all of FLARE’s special events.

The platform shoe by Balenciaga

I love this shoe-boot – it’s exactly what I need to update my classic LBD.

Rick Owens

The cropped leather jacket by Rick Owens

This is one piece that I’d wear forever. I’ve already scouted a great version from Canada’s own Danier that I’ll be wearing 24/7 this season.

Marni

The statement necklace by Marni

My go-to accessory for the past year has been a stand-out necklace. It’s all I need to update my classics and turn a day dress into a hot evening look. Plus, I love wearing a necklace like this for TV appearances – it makes a big fashion statement.

The perfect suit by Chanel

This is the one investment piece that I will plan to buy. A Chanel suit is timeless, effortless and versatile.

Marc Jacobs

The coloured coat by Marc Jacobs

When it’s brutally cold and snowy outside, I’ll stand out in an electric pink jacket. It’s exactly what I’ll need to get through another long grey Canadian winter.

A top-to-toe red outfit by Haider Ackerman

This outfit would look great in black but it’s traffic-stopping in red. Tilda Swinton (above) stole the focus on the red carpet in Cannes when she wore a similar look by Ackerman. Stunning!

Birkin

The updated Birkin by Hermès

There’s already a waiting list for this brilliant bag. I’m always carrying around a FLARE too – plus half my desk – so this is the perfect size!
