Turn up at EFS Lounge tonight for copious cocktails, grunge-inspired looks and swag- courtesy of our favourite bad boy Aussies. Vive la sartorial revolution.
Yesterday we featured a veteran, today we bring you a great young designer that has really stepped up to the plate in the Canadian men’s fashion arena in the last few years. Christopher Bates self title brand was featured as one of the top six leading menswear designers in Canada by Sharp Magazine in September 2009, and was subsequently the only menswear designer in the Mercedes-Benz StartUp Program back in 2012, where he was also awarded with a sponsored show at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto.
While CB is back on runway this week at World MasterCard Fashion Week (Wednesday, October 23 @ 4pm) to showcase his SS ’14 collection we’re happy to announce that we’re officially carrying a curated selection of his great Fall ’13 collection in-stores now.
With World Mastercard Fashion Week starting today we thought it only appropriate to pay homage to some of this countries amazing menswear designers, starting with one of its veterans, Bustle Clothing. Founded in 2002 by Shawn Hewson and Ruth Promislow – both Bay street lawyers, Bustle Clothing has evolved into a leader in the Canadian men’s fashion scene and has become synonymous for its cheeky twist on the menswear classics. With pieces ranging from swimsuits to Red-Carpet suits, Bustle offers a full range of menswear – all with a strong focus on fit, unique and luxurious fabrics, attention to details, and of course, signature cheekiness.
Here’s a look into some of the great pieces we picked up for Fall ’13 from this iconic Canadian brand.
