Local Love: Building a case for all-day sleepwear with the help of a local designer


Published:

Julian Schnabel has forever been a voice in favour of wearing pajamas all the time. Pretty much The Dude of the art world, the artist has been spotted midday, after sundown, on red carpets and at black tie soirees wrapped in the comfort of his PJs. Now that — finally — the rest of the world has, um, cottoned on to the concept, our favourite take on the look comes from noted Toronto designer Jennifer Torosian.

Torosian, who created her eponymous label along with her other half Raed Ali, has gone with a slightly less rumpled look for us plebs (hey, we can’t all do that out-of-bed artist thing). Plucked from from the spring/summer ’17 collection which saw many floral references sprinkled throughout, this louche look is one of the season’s finest (top $295; pant $445). 

The custom flowers-on-acid print is made from Italian viscose — a lightweight fabric ideal for warmer temperatures. “We liked how energetic and bright the pattern was,” Torosian says. “The print is playful so we created a look that was equally as playful!” The pieces come shot with neon yellow piping imbuing them with a slightly sporty vibe — something the label is known for.  

“It’s easy for the summer, but still creates a bold impression with the print-on-print and volume in the wide leg,” Torosian says. “For impact, our woman wears the look as shown!”

Steven Sabados on how to nail the statement lighting trend in any room of your home

A fixture should always supply your space with the amount of light needed. My call is for mandatory dimmer switches for all fixtures. Too much light can feel like dining in an overly bright tanning bed; too little light makes carving the turkey impossible. The solution is a dimmer switch, so you can adjust the light accordingly.

Local Love: A sustainable denim jacket fit for the eco-warrior

The denim label, designed by siblings Adam and Ania Taubenfligel, came to be in Canada and got its wings in Los Angeles. But it wasn’t until LA was caught in the midst of a drought that the designers began to question the role they were playing in the fashion industry.
