I didn’t think that I would be impressed…I thought I would walk the streets looking for style and find nothing too remarkable. The rivalry between Montreal and Toronto (which reminds me of the whole NYC/LA thing) lead me to believe that TO would be alive with energy, but a bit devoid of style.
Well, I was definitely right about the energy, between a visit to the Spoke club, hearing all about the G20, and watching the set up for the MMVA’s, the city was totally buzzing (check out a Moog Audio DJing session that had people stopping in the street and a fabulous resto called Le Select Bistro that was humming with peeps):
And as for the lack of style, I was wrong-bongo. Check out a couple of the things I saw on the street that blew my mind…
Fur shoes. Delicious and amazing in the middle of a boiling hot day, this adorable girl wore khaki shorts, a white T and these amazing shoes. I have to say that the unexpected texture and sheer contradiction of these shoes completely intrigued me.
The Bird Dress. Toronto is all about being Canadian and when I asked about this dress, it’s owner was totally keen on telling me that it was a Canadian designer (designer patriotism!). I think this outfit sums up the TO look: Simple, chic yet comfy, and just the right dash of sophisticated detail.
The looks on T-Dot streets were varied, like any big city. The thing that stuck out the most for me was that this town is humming with a vibe that is evident in the clothes and in the people. What I didn’t know before, but I definitely know now is that Toronto is giving any big city a run for it’s street-style-money.
