behind the issue

1. Toronto-based writer ERIN MCLAUGHLIN has us dreaming of warm, sunny days spent on the patio thanks to “The Hard Way,” her deep dive into surprisingly chic garden chairs (p. 98). When it comes to redecorating a home, the design expert shares some wisdom. “For a quick fix, install dimmers on all your lights,” she says. “Subdued lighting creates instant ambience and also hides dog hair on furniture—a regular occurrence at my house.” 2. Photographer CLARENS PRUNYER is no stranger to long, stressful days—but he knows how to get through them. “I take a deep breath and tell myself that everything comes to an end,” says the Montreal native. “And eventually it does.” Thankfully, our very glam jewellery shoot was not one of those days. Instead, Prunyer says, it was a…

editor’s note

Editor-in-Chief Follow me on Instagram and Twitter @vanessacraft. I’VE NEVER MADE a magazine from home before—at least, not since I was a kid, using Elmer’s glue and construction paper. But as we were finishing the final pages of this month’s issue, the coronavirus hit and the world changed. The ELLE Canada team had to relocate to our sofas, kitchen counters and dining tables. We had to sign off on files remotely, have video-conference calls and make the inevitable last-minute changes from a distance. I found it harder to adjust to all the changes than I thought I would. I’ve been learning a lot about myself during this surreal time. I thought I was a diehard introvert, but my longing right now to be with friends and family is profound. I miss communal meals and…

“These times are, for sure, very scary. What makes me feel better, though, is seeing how many people are being supportive of one another. In my apartment building, we’ve put up signs saying that if anyone feels sick, we’ll gladly pick up some groceries or walk their dog for them. Also, I’m very touched to see how many families are rekindling their enjoyment of being together and playing together while also learning more about one another.” Joanie Pietracupa Editor-in-Chief, ELLE Québec “The ELLE Japan team is restless as none of us know when this situation will get better. Everyone is doing well, despite many changes in the work environment, and we are striving to create content that delivers ELLE’s positive messages every day. This year, sakura (cherry blossoms) began to bloom earlier in…

Cheer Up When Winnipeg-based queer artist and jewellery designer Hannah Quist was thinking of a name for her hobby turned business, she started with a list of things she loved and eventually landed on Paisley Sun Studio. This personal touch is evident in all her handmade pieces; available in a variety of vibrant hues and quirky shapes, they make up a collection of earrings that’s evocative of a spring garden. Her latest pieces are a combination of candy-coloured resin and a solid sprinkling of glitter; the whimsical accessories were inspired by nature and her travels in Portugal. (From $20, paisleysunstudio.ca) Behind the Lens When he was just 23 years old, Tyler Mitchell made history as the first Black photographer—and one of the youngest ever—to shoot a cover for Vogue, having been hand-picked by…

emerald fennell

WHEN YOU’RE JUGGLING AS MANY jobs as 34-year-old Emerald Fennell does (she’s an actor, an author, a director and a screenwriter), sometimes the important things get neglected. “My perfect day off is just 12 solid hours of TV,” the Brit says with a wistful laugh. She’s in the English countryside, where she is spending time between filming days for her role as a young Camilla Parker Bowles in season four of The Crown. “I still haven’t seen the Love Is Blind finale—that’s how bad my schedule is. I haven’t found the time to see how this masterpiece ends.” You may know Fennell from her appearances as the future Duchess of Cornwall or as the pal Phoebe Waller-Bridge handpicked to take over as showrunner for season two of Killing Eve. But…

WHEN ALICE HAPPENS upon a curious patch of anthropomorphic pansies, roses and tiger lilies, she’s transfixed by their beauty and their candour—a respite from the uncertain landscape of Wonderland. She stays with them a while before being unceremoniously ousted back into the fantasy underworld. Though the story of Alice in Wonderland, first published in 1865 and made into a Disney animation nearly 100 years later, is a cautionary tale, the character has long been considered a poster girl for the psychedelic era: a hippie seeking enlightenment by journeying through one long, confusing hallucination. This season, Alice could easily be a metaphor for us all. The prevalence of optimistic blooms on the spring runways was a joyful counter to the doom and gloom of the real world. Marc Jacobs, for example, sent Kaia…
