by Robyn Yager | Hey Jude is launching their online shop soon with pieces from their Fall 2013 collection. These girls have style and an eye for vintage. An online shop seems like the natural next best thing. Keep your eyes peeled and follow them on Twitter for details.

Baudouin’s 75 Parisiennes is a photo collection celebrating every aspect of the Parisian woman. The collection-turned-coffee-table-book features 75 women all photographed in their actual homes (except for one in a store). According to Baudouin: “Coco Chanel, Ines de la Fressange, Catherine Deneuve are all icons but do not represent the true Parisienne!” Preview 30 images of the book here. (via The Genteel)

Preview Ruby Starling‘s Summer 2013 collection at HouseXGuest with ION Magazine on Wednesday May 29th. All proceeds from raffle sales go to the F*CK CANCER Charity. RSVP here.

In the spirit of Daft Punk‘s new album, Random Access Memories, check out the band styled by Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent Paris. Who doesn’t love robots, sequins, and French electro?

Ooh la la! Commes Des Garcons x Converse.

Following the Rana Plaza collapse in April that killed more than 1,000 factory workers (now known as the deadliest disaster in garment industry history), fashion has been under more scrutiny than ever for its blatant disregard for working conditions in favour of the manufacturing of inexpensive clothes for cheap labour of which includes Canada’s Joe Fresh. More business of fast fashion and the Rana Plaza collapse herehere, and here.

The most stylish cyclists in town are throwing a film release party. Vancouver Cycle Chic, the North West component of Copenhagen Cycle Chic, is responsible for encouraging, documenting and supporting fashion friendly cycling in Vancouver. Their latest project, a series of short films featuring individuals who ride with style, debuts at Whoa! Nellie bikes (5935 Main Street) on June 1st. Stop by for a few drinks, music, and 4 short film screenings. Free admission. Details here.
