LOOKCITY: On Father’s Day Ideas, Lifetime Collective Collaborations & Roots Fall 2012

by Jenny Bachynski | Reid Stewart and Trevor Fleming are the brains behind one of Vancouver’s greatest gems – Lifetime Collective. In a recent interview they shared some insights into their 10 + year journey of creating a multi-faceted company. After reading it and watching the sweet collaborative video above, check out their awesome online shop.

Have you seen Moonrise Kingdom yet? It may be one of Wes Anderson’s most stylized films, and it comes complete with phenomenal costumes. Which leads us to this: want to own one of the coolest Halloween costumes ever?

A very interesting article on a career that’s based solely on appearance and the opportunities that follow. Featuring Richmond’s very own Coco Rocha.

With Father’s Day fast approaching, we all need to get our butts into gear and come up with some creative and unforgettable gifts for Pops. Some top picks could be a Herschel backpack, a Faribault Soho throw, or a Wings + Horns waxed Max coat.

Are you a fan of the British monarchy or staying dry when it rains? If you yes to either or both, check out local blog The Anthology for a great giveaway from Fulton (the royal family’s official umbrella manufacturer). The contest closes 5:00pm PST June 8, 2012.

Roots is pretty much as Canadian Classic as you can get. Check out a preview of their new 2012 fall collection. The collaboration with two Canadian knitwear designers,  Preloved and Line Knitwear, will make for some amazing sweater options.

California girl Heidi Merrick met up with Vancouver girl Anya Georgijevic to talk about her new collection and eyeball her trunk show at Oliver and Lilly’s.

Bri Emery of Design Love Fest and internationally known photographer Max Wanger have recently teamed up to put together some lovely style series. This one in particular caught my eye with its light and somewhat spooky feel. Dig the behind the scenes video here.
