A few weeks back we had Youtube sensation Estee Lalonde into the ELLE Canada Closet to play a little game of Fishbowl Frenzy! Don't forget to pick up our January 2017 issue to see an exclusive portrait of the Internet star...and now IRL author of a new memoir / life advice book, Bloom.
Mariah, she's just like us.
The Queen of Christmas music recently appeared on Ellen, stepping out in a festive red robe – and a lot of bling.
Ellen couldn’t help but comment on the dazzling jewels, to which Mariah responded, “Come on, these are…celebratory.”
When the host asked about this photo from the singer’s Instagram, Mariah claimed that she took a bath in her diamonds because she was literally just too lazy to take them off. #relatable
Ellen also asked about her upcoming docu-series, and got a few details about her break-up.
Take a look at the video here:
A look from Khaite's resort 2017 collection.
Although Alessandro Michele makes a compelling case for more-is-more, some of us will always be drawn to restrained, clean designs. These labels are proving that minimal style doesn't have to boring or unimaginative.
This LA-based label shows that minimalism and ruffles aren't mutually exclusive. Everything is crafted from deadstock vintage fabrics, giving the clothes a nostalgic feel.
For those of you who prefer your bikini free of palm fronds and hibiscus blooms, there's Aussie brand Matteau Swim, known for basic maillots and high-waisted swim bottoms in a palette of black, grey and white.
Launched this year by Catherine Holstein, Khaite is a balance of the masculine and feminine. Fans of the capsule wardrobe concept will find that pieces in the line, from structured shirt dresses to fitted denim, compliment one another perfectly.
Alnea Farahbella's label Toit Volant is made in the USA with a commitment to sustainable sourcing and manufacturing practices. The pre-spring 2017 collection is full of reworked takes on shirting, like this striped jumpsuit with a high collar.
This Montreal-based label keeps production local (the clothes are sewn in Montreal and some of the fabrics are printed in North America) and its ethos is similar to most of the other brands in this list: to let the individual add personality to the clothes.
Another L.A. brand with a dedication to North American manufacturing and sustainability, 5-year-old Shaina Mote is known for architectural, un-adorned basics and fluid silhouettes. If you could live your life without ever donning a polka dot or cheery stripe, the neutral colours in this line are made for you.
Founded by Tokyo-to-L.A. transplants Alexander Yamaguchi and Momoko Suzuki, brand Black Crane is an edgier, more street-wise take on minimalism – think cocoon dresses and wrap trousers with subtle origami and kimono inspiration.
So this is crazy: It's time for the 9th annual 'United States of Pop' aka everyone's favourite DJ mash up of all the year's chart toppers.
But that's not the crazy part. What's really insane is that Zayn's 'Pillowtalk' came out THIS year. I feel like it's one of those songs that's just like, always been there you know?
Anyway! Have a listen to see if your fave ditty made the cut.
