Kudos to the @ELLECanada team. @CodeBlackCN Shot in Little Jamaica in Toronto, sure this cover story concept would not be possible without @vanessacraft at the helm.

editor’s note

Whenever an election rolls around, I think of my late stateside paternal grandmother, who was African-American and Indigenous-American and who, because of antiquated racially discriminatory voting laws, wasn’t able to vote until she was well into her 30s. By then, she had been married twice, had three children and held several jobs. But even when it was possible for her to take part in the electoral process, she never did. She didn’t think that her vote—one single voice—would make a difference. That sense of hopelessness and powerlessness is heartbreaking. And although we have a different historical legacy here in Canada, we must stand on guard against cynicism. When we’re kids, most of us dream of being drivers of change. I know I did. But when the real world weighs on you,…

FASHION MOMENT Subtlety is overrated. Sometimes we want big, audacious, look-at-me fashion. That’s why we’re excited to sweep into Versace’s new Canadian flagship in Toronto for its signature brand of gilded glamour. The glitzy 3,000-square-foot space spans two levels, is adorned with lavish details of marble, metal and velvet and has a three-dimensional rendering of the Italian fashion house’s iconic Medusa logo on the ceiling. (106 Yorkville Avenue, Toronto) READY FOR RAIN Sustainability champion Stella McCartney has teamed up with Hunter to create the most ecofriendly version of the heritage brand’s wellington boot yet. Made from ethically sourced natural rubber from Guatemala and lined with Yulex—a material that has the same strength and elasticity as neoprene but produces 80 percent less carbon dioxide—the boots are a combination of material innovation and forward-thinking design.…

gigi hadid & michael kors

“I’ve known her for six years,” says designer Michael Kors of supermodel Gigi Hadid, who is sitting beside him in a fancy suite in the St. Regis hotel in New York. “For her, that’s a very long time; for me, it’s the blink of an eye,” he adds, breaking into his famed hearty laugh. Kors and Hadid are here to fete the launch of the new Wonderlust fragrance campaign, of which Hadid is the face. It’s quickly evident that they have more than a model-designer relationship; Hadid is also a muse to Kors, with the designer praising her willingness to completely embrace the spirit of the scent during shooting. “We had her spinning down the beach, and that bottle is really heavy,” says Kors, referring to the oversized fragrance vessel…

women’s work

WHEN VIRGINIE VIARD presented her first haute couture collection as artistic director of Chanel this past summer, she reinforced how utterly qualified she was to succeed the late Karl Lagerfeld—she’d been with the brand for 30 years, after all—but she also confirmed that we are entering an era in which female creatives are finally being acknowledged for their talents. Between Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior, Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy and Viard at Chanel, the three most prestigious haute couture houses of our time are artistically led by women, a fact that is cause for pride. To understand just how rare this is, consider the numbers: There are only 15 haute couture ateliers (corresponding and guest members like Iris van Herpen and Guo Pei add 22 more names to that list)…
