Spa Week is back and bigger than ever! Indulge in a day at the spa for just $50


WaySpa Spa Week 2014

If the high cost of going to the spa is keeping you from enjoying frequent afternoons of relaxation, have we got news for you. WaySpa, the online spa marketplace, is back with another edition of Spa Week, running April 21-27, 2014. Think of Spa Week as Summerlicious for your mind, body and soul: luxury spas offer premium treatments for just $50—but for one week only.

That’s right: you can book a facial, massage, manicure, pedicure and more at some of Canada’s top spas for only a fraction of what they usually cost. Even better, this year Spa Week has expanded to more Canadian cities, with Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa joining the roster that already includes Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. That’s a whole lotta spa treatments! So what are you waiting for? The complete Spa Week by WaySpa list is available here and we suggest booking ASAP—especially if you have your eye on more than one.

The absence of Montreal Fashion Week this season has not diminished the energy of our local designers. Au contraire. Within the framework and sartorial hoopla of London Fashion Week, seven of our city’s finest talents have jetted to the U.K. to present their Fall 2014 wares. A stream of press and buyers at the British Fashion Council’s International Fashion Showcase awaits…

Osheaga 2013: 70 festival style photos of crop tops, tie-dye prints and the best hat ever (YOLO!)

Is the August long weekend the end of music festival season? Say it ain’t so! However, in order to keep you in the spirit of summer festivals, we have a whole batch of street style snaps fresh from Osheaga 2013. The three-day indie festival is reaching peak popularity, with bands like Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend and Kendrick Lamar drawing fans from across the country to Montreal. And, thanks to the style-spotting eye of photographer Phil Birnbaum, it seems like the festival fashion at Osheaga is just as strong as the musical line-up. This may have something to do with the Osheaga’s downtown location, allowing attendees to stay in hotels rather than camping onsite. Read more »

Montreal Street Style

Comedy and fashion aren’t exactly what we think of as fast friends, but this past weekend’s star-studded Just for Laughs festival in Montreal (performers included Joan Rivers, Seth Meyers and Jay Baruchel) seemed to find legions of fans in the city’s most stylish set.

Comfort was key for the show’s trendy attendees, who took in the free street performances at the city’s Place des Festivals under the hot July sun. Lucky for us, Style Panel’s Gabrielle Lacasse was on hand to capture festivalgoers in their breeziest, warm-weather ensembles. The street style shots feature crop tops, denim cutoffs, maxi skirts and other summery sartorial staples. Stripes, florals, shorts and primary colours are among the spring trends spotted on the fashion-forward bunch. Among the fashionable crowd, we caught Naomi Gendron, who knows a thing or two about rocking bold colours, and Maddie Lusk, whose shorteralls are a fresh take on the shorts trend. Though these seriously stylish folk are no laughing matter they do put big smiles on our faces. If you missed the lol-packed festival, you’ll have to wait till next year as the event ended with performances by Colin Mochrie and Dave Chappelle among others yesterday.

Tried-and-true retailer Reitmans teams up for the holidays with up-and-coming label Martin Lim


Designer: Tried-and-true retailer Reitmans teams up for the holidays with up-and-coming label Martin Lim

See the article photos »

It’s a sweltering summer day, but in a cavernous (and thankfully, cool) Montreal loft studio a model is glammed up like a hostess at a holiday fete. The shoot is for a capsule collection that brings together 365-store-strong Canadian retailer Reitmans and two-year-old fashion label Martin Lim, designed by Montreal-based husband and wife team Pao Lim and Danielle Martin, who won last year’s Mercedes-Benz Start Up competition. But these designers aren’t exactly new kids on the block. After both completing a master of arts in fashion at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins, Martin and Lim honed their design skills in Paris: she worked at Christian Lacroix; both put in time at Roland Mouret. In 2004, they returned to Canada, and launched their own line in 2010.

The Weekend To-Do: We’re hitting Pop Montreal, meeting Rachel Roy in Vancouver and shopping the Dundas West Sidewalk Sale in Toronto


Weekend To-Do

Fall is in full swing here at FASHION and although the abrupt temperature drop was quite harsh there’s not much to do but embrace this glorious autumn weather. Tomorrow’s Dundas West Sidewalk Sale is the perfect opportunity to don that favourite knit of yours you’ve been itching to throw on all summer. For those of us who weren’t able to score tickets to the sold-out Grimes shows, it’s not the end of the world (we’d like to think). A generous amount of live music will be in store this weekend at POP Montreal and Vancouver’s Olio Festival.

The Weekend To-Do: Oysterfest in Montreal, where to shop in Toronto and spend Labour Day laughing with For A Good Time, Call


The Weekend To Do Toronto Vancouver Montreal

As Labour Day is a celebration in honour of those who fought to work less than 12 hours a day, it’s only fitting to indulge in a little R&R this weekend. Whether it’s restorative or preventative rest you’re after—what with a new school year, TIFF and Fashion’s Night Out on the horizon—there’s plenty to choose from, should you decide to leave your Adirondack chair.
