behind the issue

1. When in Paris…you try to visit as many cafés as humanly possible, obviously. That’s exactly what beauty director LESA HANNAH did in between events for the launch of Hermès’ first-ever lipstick. We can’t say we weren’t a little upset that she didn’t manage to find a way to bring the entire office back a pain au chocolat, but we can forgive her. Find her full breakdown of the debut on page 44. 2. In “Homegrown” (p. 52), writer JESSICA WEI takes a closer look at a Canadian brand that’s at the forefront of zero-waste beauty. And outside of her writing, the native Montrealer makes sure to practise what she preaches. “Sustainability now informs most of my consumer decisions: I DIY what I can, only buy products I can get in…

editor's note

ONE THING IS CERTAIN: There is no quick fix to solve what is happening to our planet—the need for action around climate change has never been more urgent. And let’s keep it real: The fashion industry’s impact on the environment is significant and not something we can ignore any longer. This month’s issue contains many questions (and answers!) about the conventions we must challenge in order to make a lasting difference: Is it possible to have a fully sustainable fashion brand? Why are women impacted more by climate-change issues than men? How do we support the young activists taking extreme steps for our planet? We also flag small habits that can add up. My biggest challenge is reducing my carbon footprint. I used to brag about how many miles I…

Woven Heritage To celebrate its 350th anniversary, Hudson’s Bay is launching a limited-edition version of its point blanket, to be reissued in a historic colourway every month in 2020. For April, it’s the pastel-hued Ice Cream blanket. First seen in 1957, it evoked the fun of the shopping mall (which was rising in popularity at the time). In the 18th century, the wool blankets became synonymous with trade among Indigenous and settler communities and were often fashioned into wrap-style coats. Today, the distinctive original stripe design lives on as an emblem of the department store but also as a reminder of the brand’s colonial history. ($450, thebay.com) On and On What will our legacy be for the next generation? Montreal-based designer and Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards winner Marie-Eve Aubry examines this question…

EARLY ON IN OUR CONVERSATION, Canadian multidisciplinary artist Vivek Shraya presents us with a challenge: Google books that are centred around female friendships and what do you find? Page after page of the usual suspects: Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels, Mary McCarthy’s seminal The Group, Toni Morrison’s acclaimed Sula, Sally Rooney’s Insta book club fave Conversations With Friends. There are others, of course, but not as many as you would expect—or hope for. “Stories about contemporary female friendships are few and far between,” says the trans writer, who is also a musician, a playwright, a filmmaker and an assistant professor at the University of Calgary. “And of those books, even fewer have brown characters. But I’ve always tried to prioritize friendships as much as romantic relationships.” Enter Shraya’s latest novel, The…

IT SEEMS A bit silly to refer to the white button-down shirt as a trend since there is, in fact, nothing less trendy than this imposing classic that has stood the test of time. (Seriously, these collared babies have been burning up the proverbial runways since the late 1800s.) Regardless, the white shirt is back again this season with enough spins to make your head, well, spin. While some may say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” I am welcoming this redux with open arms. As a self-professed maximalist with a leaning toward bright and shiny things, I have always felt that a white shirt is the ultimate palate cleanser—the one piece I know I can return to again and again for utter calm. Amid the chaos of today’s increasingly…
