With over 15 years of eye makeup knowledge, Nina and Max Leykind, co-founders of the cosmetics line Eyeko, have developed the world’s first custom-made personal mascara service.

Named after a small Saskatchewan town, Vancouver-based backpack company Herschel Supply Co. has always been influenced by vintage Canadiana stylings. As a result, the brand’s new collaboration with Hudson’s Bay Company comes across as an innate synchronicity realized.

The signature Hudson’s Bay stripes have a long history as a Canadian symbol since their inauguration on the Bay’s point blankets in 1780.

WINTER WHITES: Bachelor pads often conjure images of dark mahogany, rich leather, and low lighting, but few things liven up a space like the colour white.

Fashion industry heavyweight Marie Holman Rao is responsible for the construction of some of the retail world’s biggest names. The creation of private label 424 Fifth for Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor is the most recent addition.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: Tonight at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto, Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan present their fall/winter 2014 collections. Joseph Mimran and Kimberley Newport-Mimran are the husband and wife founders behind the brands. Together, they have carved out a significant place in Canada’s fickle fashion landscape.

Moody lighting lends a bad-boy vibe to our favourite clean-cut styles from the men’s spring/summer collections.

Fresh pasta bar at midnight? Audi sure knows how to spoil a guy who commits to a 400-calorie-a-day-diet in order to play the role of his career. The reinvention on parade at Saturday’s TIFF parties is most poignant with Matthew McConaughey, as he unleashes his most radical role yet on Toronto audiences.

The cross-country road trip is something of a rite of passage for Canadians; our country’s vast and varied terrain is ample raw material for exploration. And while nothing beats getting behind the wheel, we don’t all have the time, or patience, for a journey of this magnitude.
