So as you all might know, I have switched careers and I’m now currently working at Nordstrom Vancouver, specifically at the Men’s Designer department.
This series will be dedicated to featuring the outfits of my co workers and to show the diversity of our styles and influences. I’m doing this in the hopes of opening your eyes and to be able to appreciate them. Hopefully to get you to try and explore from your normal routine of how you would dress yourself.
This post will be twice a week, every Monday and Friday so be sure to regularly check it out!
“We tell our story through our commitment: to quality in our product, in our stores, in our design, in our craftsmanship and most importantly, our commitment to our customer.
Danier began as an independent family owned design house, manufacturer and retailer in 1972. With an expertise and heritage creating leather garments, handbags and accessories we have evolved into an essential fashion destination with a modern sensibility and timeless aesthetic.
Each season we offer a full collection available exclusively online and at 90 Danier stores across Canada.” – Danier Leather Canada
So after 34 years of being in business, Danier Leather is closing it’s doors, but before that they are doing a massive liquidation sale on all of their stores, outlets and online. This is a sad day for another Canadian owned company. I myself own a few of their leather jackets which is what they are known for. They make good quality products but I guess they just haven’t evolved with the times and the trends.
If you go on their site, you will see the big signage below
So if you are in the market for some good quality leather, I would suggest stock up and head to the closest Danier store or online.
“It’s a shoe that’s older than we are, but it remains handsome and relevant to this day. In 1987, Nike released the Air Max 1 – a piece of groundbreaking design, which, for the first time, gave consumers a view of the Air Sole unit that underpinned the comfort and performance of designer Tinker Hatfield’s celebrated Nike Airs. Yup, this was the birth of ‘visible air’, inspired by the architecture of Paris’ Pompidou Centre – a building that looks like it’s been sprung inside out, boasting inner workings that are visible through its exterior.” – from Asos.com
So here’s the inspiration
I just find it amazing how one architectural design influence another now iconic shoe design. The Air Max line of shoes by Nike has got to be one of the most reinvented sneaker line that I know of along with Chucks which is also owned by Nike.
With this being said, here’s a photo of my own Nike Air Max
Ain’t it so cool? Haha!
Now here are some of the ones that I like from the world of Instagram
As you can see, the influence alone of these shoes transcends gender and age! From the most muted designs to the brightest of colours even the use of different materials such as Cork! Nike Air Max has come a long way!
How about you, do you own a pair? Share your photo on the comments!
Vancouver Fashion Week F/W 2015 | Day 1 (Opening Gala)
So the time has finally come, once again Downtown Vancouver gets overtaken by fashionistas from the world over for one whole week. Designers from all over the world have gathered in one place to showcase their works-of-art to be seen by Vancouver fashionistas and trendsetters. Stay tuned to my site for updates for the whole week as i’ll be posting all the happenings of each day. If you want a more real-time updates of the event be sure to follow me on my instagram and twitter.
So here are some of the photos from the events of day 1.
Snagged a photo with my beautiful fashion writer friend Samantha and you can check out our Valentines Day Collaboration “He Said She Said” post on here.
So last but not the least, here’s a photo of me. LOL! No suit today since as you would’ve guessed it, most guys attending the gala would be wearing a suit, I’ll save mine for another day so stay tuned!
If you want to see more photos from this day it’s all in the gallery here.
Bold statement, yes. Is it justifiable, yes, and here’s why.
All these photos were taken by me, with the help of my trusty tripod. No selfie sticks here. So if it weren’t for the tripod I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to be in the photo with my beautiful and talented friend fellow fashion blogger Samantha. So the background story here was, I was only supposed to take photos of her then I would feature her on here but the nice lady that she is, she wanted photos with me as well. Who am I to turn down this opportunity anyway? (Give you some time to think here)
So I went with my tripod and self-timer to the rescue and these were the results of it! Not too shabby if I say so myself (brushes shoulders off). It was quite the fun experience as Samantha and I would run back to the camera after each shot to see if we got the right shot or if we blinked or not. The occasional *high five* was present as well when we were both on point as we waited for the shutter to go *click*.
So would you have guess that these photos we’re just taken by me with a tripod or someone else was taking the photo?
