Summer 2015

NUVO Summer 2015 Cover featuring Michelle Monaghan

Always in fashion.

Wine and fashion. Operas and pasta. The Italians are globally famous for many, many things. Yet one of the world’s most recognizable Italian brands is not a fashion label or a wine producer. It’s a beer.

Good vibrations.

A lot has happened to the members of Alabama Shakes since the release of their 2012 debut album, Boys & Girls.

A fine light.

Two hours from Prague, floating amidst the swells of the Czech countryside, is the landlocked village of Jenštejn, which locals call “the Island”. It is 5ºC outside, but inside the 200-year-old Jenštejn Glassworks, it is not unreasonable to fear that one’s clothing may spontaneously ignite.

Bottom of the barrel.

It’s the way you feel after downing one too many Singapore Slings the night before: after years of binging on high oil prices, Canada’s energy sector is experiencing the mother of all hangovers.

Michelle Monaghan, accidental actress.

Michelle Monaghan is an actress with a strict Midwest work ethic. She is next set to star alongside Adam Sandler, as a military weapons developer in this summer’s action-comedy Pixels.

Surf and spice.

When food trucks turned the culinary tide in the 2000s, Portland’s weren’t the only moveable feasts on the West Coast garnering serious buzz—Tofino’s Tacofino did, too.

The horseman.

Normand Latourelle strides into one of the white tents anchored near the shores of Lake Ontario, where the members of his multinational equestrian spectacular, Odysseo, are having lunch. He is all smiles, even as he acknowledges that he can’t remember anyone’s name.

A stitch different.

Many fashion brands are named after a designer, founder, or some combination of the two. The exceptions to this are few and far between.
