How much do I hate swimwear shopping?

Enough to spend way more money than I should for such a minimal item I will wear only a few times a year. But high Lycra content, galleryworthy prints, savvy cuts and a shop pro who can eyeball my curves and make the most of my middle-aged situation all help take the sting out of this annual downer. I don’t care how young or toned you are, swimwear shopping sucks. So with confidence-boosting as a mission, our Swim Therapy theme was born. Contributor Marilisa Racco found reassurance from Canadian swimwear insiders in “Suiting Up” (page 38), while executive editor Jacquelyn Francis got inspired by two women who earn their living doing something many of us avoid: being photographed in monokinis and maillots (“Body Talk,” page 42).

CONTRIBUTORS

What do you look for in a swimsuit? “For lane swimming, something polyester and chlorine-proof that doesn’t stretch, which keeps me honest as far as sticking to race weight. For recreation, I like a basic black bikini.”

“I tend to like really graphic bathing suits with interesting cut-outs. There are some really hot one-pieces out there—a nice alternative to the usual bikini.”

3 “This season’s sporty rash-guard styles. Who doesn’t want to channel their inner athlete?”

1. Freelance writer YUKI HAYASHI knew she’d be heading to Whistler in July for her first Ironman when she wrote about the rise of women in endurance sports for “Long Haul” (page 95). “I was writing during a cold March, so it was nice to think ahead to late spring road races and summer’s triathlon season,” says Hayashi, who ranks openwater swimming in a lake or ocean and backcountry camping as her favourite summertime activities.

26

2. FASHION ’s copy and health editor EMILIE DINGFELD looked at the mainstreaming of modern dance (“On the Move,” page 108) for our Culture section, which allowed her to reminisce about a childhood spent at the ballet barre. When summer arrives you might not see Dingfeld on that outdoor patio, but she’s probably there behind sunglasses, a floppy hat and a red lip. “I hide from the sun whenever possible,” she says.

3. Toronto makeup artist SABRINA RINALDI is at home in the beauty world: “I started young working in my dad’s salon, sweeping up hair and emptying ashtrays from the hooded dryers.” This issue, she worked on “Dream Weaver” (page 116). In the summer, she’ll be at her family cottage, jumping on an outdoor trampoline in the sunshine. “It’s frustrating getting there with the traffic, but once you arrive, the stresses of the city fade away.”

4. L.A.-based stylist HEIDI MEEK got an unexpected workout on set with our cover model, actress Ashley Benson. “We were shooting in a house nestled in Laurel Canyon up 50 stairs. The best light was down the stairs to the street,” says Meek. “With every outfit change, the crew went up and down.” Summers for Meek (an Edmonton native) and her husband now revolve around their two kids. “We live at the beach. It’s the best.”

Did anyone else have a Sex and the City 2 flashback while reading “Change of a Dress” (April 2015) by Julia Seidl? I appreciated that she presented Qatar’s culture and clothing limitations in an unbiased manner and even provided upsides to wearing an abaya. I also loved the rock star bios (“Grandes Dames,” May 2015) in your Age Issue. To be honest, the article on child designers and kids frontrow at fashion shows (“Child’s Play,” May 2015) wasn’t my favourite. Nurturing a kid’s artistic talents? 100 per cent, of course! Giving them thousands of dollars of clothing and telling them, “You are valuable because you are pretty”? Not so much. —Emma Culjat-Vukman (Toronto)

SWEET FEET

ONE TO WATCH

This summer, the queen of Candy Land brings her sweets surfside. Dylan Lauren, founder and CEO of DYLAN’S CANDY BAR (and Ralph Lauren’s daughter) has teamed up with Brazilian sandal brand HAVAIANAS on a limited-edition flip-flop collection. Featuring two of the candy emporium’s signature sweets—swirled lollipops and round lollipops—these playful thongs are the perfect addition to any beach bag. Candy crush, indeed.

MARQUES ALMEIDA is making a case for ’90s

nostalgia. The London-based brainchild of Portuguese partners Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida, the label has been dominating the It girl sphere with its grungy blend of frayed and baggy denim and separates, making fans of everyone from Rihanna to FKA Twigs. The duo lives by the Helmut Lang motto: “Fashion is about attitude, not hemlines.” Ironic, considering frayed hems are their calling card this season. —Randi Bergman

Sight Unseen

PRADA has gone green with the launch of Prada Raw, the first collection of wom-

en’s glasses made entirely from wood. Crafted in black walnut and Malabar ebony, the natural veining creates a one-of-a-kind look for each pair. With its signature temple swirls and oversized lenses, the house’s iconic Minimal-Baroque sunglasses (Gwen Stefani and Beyoncé are fans) have also been given an ecochic update this season. Let’s just say the future looks bright.

SPOTTED: ICE CREAM COLOURS

From the runway to the wrist, CHANEL has dipped into powder pastels this season. Whether you opt for a single or a double scoop, wearing these shades is a stylish way to beat the heat. Stay up-tothe-minute with one of the house’s three new J12 timepieces, featuring sugarwhipped hues like mint green on the bezel. This marks the first time colour has been incorporated into the iconic high-tech ceramic collection since its launch in 2000. With a limited number of these ticking treasures (1,200 per colour) soon to be snapped up, it’s clear time is of the essence. FASHION SUMMER 2015

Fashion If stripping down to a swimsuit terrifies you (cue the Jaws theme song), you’re not alone. From buying a bathing suit to loving your bod, our swim-therapy guide will keep you afloat all summer long.

SUITING UP

THERE’S THE KIND OF THERAPY that’s meted out by a registered professional and the kind that is self-administered with a corkscrew and a very large glass. When summer approaches, however, and words like “beach” and “pool” are bandied about, for many women, there is no therapy effective enough to take the dread out of swimsuit shopping. Personally, I paint myself into a proverbial corner when it’s time to buy a swimsuit. I wait until the last possible moment, mere hours before boarding a beach-bound flight, to blindly launch myself into a dressing room and try on

38

swimsuits with the frenzied speed of the Tasmanian devil. As it turns out, my dressing room flurry is an attempt to circumvent an inevitable shame spiral. A 2011 study conducted by researchers at Flinders University in Australia concluded that self-objectification—the act of evaluating ourselves based on what we believe to be others’ perception of us—can put women in a negative mood (even if it’s just the thought of trying on a swimsuit). It seems we’re fretting more about what we think people will see rather than what we actually see in the

mirror. By asking participants to imagine themselves dressed in swimwear versus jeans and a sweater, their selfobjectification, body shame, body dissatisfaction and negative mood spiked, with the former intensifying when the swimsuit scenario took place in a dressing room. “When you’re looking closely at yourself in front of a mirror with bright lights, you have the opportunity to examine all your bits and realize that you don’t look like what you had hoped,” says Marika Tiggemann, a psychology professor at Flinders and co-author of the study. »

“Try an elegant one-piece with a plunging neck to draw the eye downward, and look for thick straps and floating underwire, which will offer extra support.”

“A bandeau bikini top will make your upper and lower body look proportional. Moulded cups with underwire will help to hold you up.”

“A one-piece with ruching along the sides will slenderize your midsection. Don’t shy away from bold prints, either; they help avoid zeroing in on one section.”

“Try a bikini top with a push-up bra or opt for a belted one-piece with a V-neck plunge. The belt gives you an hourglass shape, while the ‘V’ draws the eye to your midsection.”

lief, bright light doesn’t cast shadows and won’t emphasize the appearance of cellulite. Only a camera will leave a shadow,” she says, adding that higherend swimwear brands use better fabrics that tend to fit better. “They research things like stitch technologies and print placement. It makes a big difference.” When you step into a specialty boutique, be prepared to get schooled in swimwear design—fits and cuts are key. Vasilia Panagakos, owner of Toronto’s Avec Plaisir and Eres boutiques, says that with the dawn of Google, more and more customers are asking for things that simply won’t work. “A lot of customers come in with assumptions on what to wear based on what they’ve read online,” she says. “I’ll have clients with a full bust say they want a bandeau bikini top because they read that it gives more coverage, but what they need is the exact opposite.” Panagakos and her staff work to determine which brand will work for each customer. “This is where technical accuracy and quality come into play,” she says, listing longevity of the swimsuit, comfort, breathability and memory of the fabric among the benefits of the brands she carries. Of course, being realistic is important when shopping for swimwear. “It’s like shopping for jeans,” says Panagakos. “You have to know what’s going to work and what won’t. I have a Mediterranean body type, for example, and I can’t wear any style that’s too low-cut.” But when a look you’ve set your sights on won’t jive with your body type— farewell, high-waisted bikini bottoms— it’s actually an opportunity to stop the carousel ride of shame that accompanies swimsuit shopping. “Focus on the most beautiful parts of your body and forget your imperfections,” says Chantal Levesque, designer of swimwear label Shan. So the next time you hit the shops looking for a new swimsuit, be positive and remember that sunny beach days lie ahead. I plan to slow down a little, take stock of what will actually suit my figure and make peace with my thighs. Barring all that, there’s always my trusty corkscrew and really large glass.

New York-based designer MARA HOFFMAN has simplified the packing process with her unique reversible swimsuits like this season’s technicolour strapless onepiece, which flips into a serene turquoise version. “It’s all about versatility,” says Hoffman. “Sometimes you’re in the mood for a fun print and sometimes you’re feeling a solid colour.”

From her sexy neoprene swimwear to her signature scuba zippers, stylist-turned-designer LISA MARIE FERNANDEZ has been reeling in celeb clients like Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian since she debuted her namesake swim line in 2009. Knotty girls will love her glam nautical-inspired, cotton-terry beach capes—a new silhouette that sailed into her resort collection and continues this summer.

Two buzz-worthy jewellery lines are proving that life’s a beach year-round.

EAST COAST: THE ROPES

When it comes to New England style, prep is always on the menu, but SHANA READY brings an unexpected twist to the table. The 38-year-old former designer at Ann Taylor launched The Ropes—a collection of bracelets that are handcrafted from marine ropes, dock line and hardware—at her Maine-based home studio in 2010. With a husband who co-owns a lobstering company, Ready is well versed in maritime sea gear, which makes this (almost) one-woman show all the more alluring, not to mention authentic. In 2014, J.Crew sold a curated selection of her colourful cool-girl bracelets, yet despite the mega exposure, she’s still driven by personal touch. “I love the handson aspect: selecting the colours and really being a part of each piece,” she says. “I want people to feel like they have a special piece of wearable artwork on their wrist.”

WEST COAST: JACQUIE AICHE

“A woman’s natural beauty can be illuminated with the right piece of jewellery,” says 39-year-old designer JACQUIE AICHE, whose delicate body chains have been spotted on celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Rihanna. Launched in 2009, her eponymous line of handmade fine jewellery includes ear jackets, finger bracelets and anklets sprinkled with semi-precious gems, minerals and fossils sourced from far-flung places like Madagascar. Working out of her appointment-only boutique/showroom in Beverly Hills, the self-taught jeweller has gained a following of Insta-fans (#JATribe), thanks to the modern-day goddesses snapped wearing her mystical body jewellery. “They’re kind of a cross between lingerie and body art tattoos,” she says. “Once a woman puts one on, it never comes off.”

FESTIVALS

CAN’T DECIDE IF YOUR FLORAL CROWN AND beaded moccasins match your crocheted caftan? Blame Kate Moss. In 2005, the supermodel brought festival fashion into the spotlight when she was photographed in hot pants, Hunter wellies and devil-may-care hair at England’s Glastonbury Festival. Sexy, carefree and covered in mud, she embodied a new music-festival lifestyle, one in which what you’re wearing is just as important as who’s performing on stage (in this case, Moss’s then-boyfriend and Babyshambles frontman, Pete Doherty, who had less staying power than a Glow Stick). “Even the artists themselves care so much about how they look and dress for festivals. It’s only appropriate that music listeners do their part,” says Aimee Song, the Los Angeles-based interior designer behind the fashion blog Song of Style, who shares her So Cal #OOTDs (outfit of the day) with 2 million Instagram followers. A regular at Coachella—the annual music fest in Indio, Calif., where fashion darlings Azealia Banks, Florence Welch and FKA Twigs performed this past April—Song knows the festival circuit, and its looks, well. “The typical trend would be crochet and lace,” she says

of the ensembles seen in the crowds at festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Osheaga and Field Trip. “But this year, I think we’ll see more patterns, such as tropical and Aztec prints.” For Coachella, Song wore a white lace Zimmermann romper, completing her free-spirited look with Dior sunglasses and Isabel Marant gladiator sandals. Danielle Bernstein of the style blog We Wore What sees a ’70s revival happening at festivals this season, sharing her own throwback looks with her nearly 1 million followers on Instagram. The New Yorker and former guest judge on Project Runway All Stars predicts the return to the festival fields of “everything fringe and suede,” the likes of which were seen on spring runways, such as Alberta Ferretti and Anna Sui. Among Bernstein’s favourite pieces inspired by this era are her printed jumpsuit from Reformation, flared J Brand jeans and aviator sunglasses. In the decade since Moss made rain boots cool again at Glastonbury, festival fashion has grown into its own market category. During this year’s Coachella, Pandora jewellery sponsored a series continued on page 51

Heaving crowds, blistering heat and a sea of boho babes—music festivals are the new runway shows. CAITLIN AGNEW dives into the muddy trenches and uncovers this season’s coolest new must-haves.

of runway shows that featured festival collections by Nanette Lepore, Plenty by Tracy Reese and more at the Parker Palm Springs hotel. Looking chic in the crowd à la Kate Bosworth and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (two of Song’s favourite short-shorts-clad festival It girls) has never been easier, since many fashion brands now cater to all of your modern Woodstock needs. Swedish fast-fashion mega retailer H&M launched its capsule collection H&M Loves Coachella this past March and had a pop-up shop right on the festival grounds. And this spring, Philadelphia-based fashion label Free People debuted its online Festival Shop, which includes everything from tents to tambourines to temporary tattoos. “We were inspired by a harder-edge look with a rebellious spirit,” says Kristal Hill, fashion director at Free People, who looked to music icons like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin for inspiration, favouring a hard-livin’ aesthetic over hippie-dippie vibes. “It really does evoke the feeling of the ’70s but in a completely modern way,” she says, referring to the collection’s fringed boot sandals and embellished trophy jackets. Channelling your inner Dead Head is all well and

groovy, but it may not be everyone’s cup of peyote. If your style skews more conservative than counterculture, start by experimenting with one or two festival-ready pieces so you don’t feel like you’re playing dress-up in Stevie Nicks’s closet. A certain level of Girl Guide preparedness also plays a big role in deciding what to wear to a festival, what with unpredictable weather and action-packed days and nights. “Plan your look ahead of time so that when the day comes you can just enjoy the show,” says Hill. For Bernstein, festival dressing is all about stylish and practical must-haves. “A backpack is essential, also a longer cardigan or jacket for when it gets cold at night,” she says. A fan of over-packing, Song advises bringing plenty of layering pieces, a big hat to protect you from the sun, sandals, boots and a colourful selection of pieces made of breathable fabrics like lace and crochet to keep cool during hot afternoons. Her do-not-pack list includes bulky handbags that inhibit dance moves and prized possessions, which become a liability when things get wild. “My sister and I were listening to David Guetta one year when her sunglasses fell on the floor,” says Song. “I was jumping up and down and stepped on them.” But don’t leave all of your signature accessories at home with your selfie sticks, which were banned this year by the organizers of both Coachella and Lollapalooza. Making bold sartorial choices that stay true to your sense of style will keep you from getting lost in the crowd. “Incorporating your own style makes a bigger statement than wearing what everyone else is wearing,” says Song. Just leave your whites at home—even Kate Moss’s signature Glastonbury look got splattered with mud. But getting dirty is part of the fun.

LOW TIDE

From Marc Jacobs’s buckled slides to Valentino’s knee-high gladiators, when it comes to footwear this season, the world is flat. AYA MCMILLAN gets the lowdown on the new height of chic. “YOU SHOULD SEE YOUR FACE,” MY PODIATRIST says, looking at me with pity in her eyes. I am sitting in her exam room seeking help for my ruptured Achilles tendon, and the good doctor has just prescribed a high-heel hiatus. To say that I am a stiletto girl is an understatement. My deep love of spindly heeled beauties wasn’t simply born from trying to build up my height—I’m five-foot-four, which is ingloriously average—it’s just that I feel better in heels. More commanding. More leggy. More…more. Even my sneakers have wedges in them (merci, Isabel Marant). I’ve always admired those Gallic gamines who

run around town in their perfect flats, which have a wee point, reveal just a little toe cleavage and are mostly by Lanvin or Alaïa. Ladies like style minx Caroline de Maigret, model (and shoe muse) Inès de la Fressange and Brit It-girl Alexa Chung. This season, sartorial change is afoot, quite literally. From New York to Milan to Paris, designers showed flatsoled footwear with everything from cropped pants to eveningwear on the runways. With every catwalker’s near-terra firma stride, the consensus became yet more irrefutable: Humongous, ankle-wobbling high heels had been grounded until further notice. Fausto Puglisi decked out the humble pool slide with gold-encrusted trim. For boy-girl glamour with a soupçon of orthopedic chic, Chanel showed two-tone ankle-strap oxfords, Balenciaga dipped into croc-tipped pointy-toe flats and Marc Jacobs did a velvety take on Dr. Scholl’s. The deity-derived knee-high gladiator sandal (think Hercules, Aphrodite, et al.) was seen everywhere from Stella McCartney to Chloé. For day, or night, Dolce & Gabbana devised ornate Mary Janes and Dries Van Noten proposed flats with a fluffy spray of fur. Even vertiginously shod Victoria Beckham made her own self-designed shoe debut with— wait for it—flats. When Posh Spice—the standard bearer of ankle breakers—pronounces that women cannot live by sky’s-the-limit stilettos alone and dedicates a major part of her collection to wonderfully crafted winkle-pickers, you know we’ve stepped into new territory. Not since Céline’s Phoebe Philo created her controversially clunky minktufted slide (“Furkenstocks,” in Internet parlance) back in 2012 has there been such a groundswell of support. »

with a chic silhouette makes obvious sense.” Clothing always comes into play when you’re sans heels. “Everyone can wear flats as long as the silhouette of their clothing is on point,” says Jessica de Ruiter, a Los Angeles-based stylist who has dressed a range of A-listers (and body types), including Drew Barrymore, Anna Kendrick and Gigi Hadid. “Try a pointy, feminine flat with a dress for evening, and slides or mules with a long A-line or pleated skirt for day,” she says. “I also love flats with shorts suits or cropped slim pants. A lower heel or kitten heel just won’t give the same look or effect as a flat. A flat sends the message that you don’t try too hard, that you are comfortable in your own skin, with your own style, and that you can be sexy without a heel.” To boost my confidence, I’ve decided to reconfigure my wardrobe altogether. After all, my printed dresses and long, fluid skirts aren’t quite in step with the ubiquitous slip-ons Instagrammed outside the shows. But teamed with to-the-knee gladiator sandals, it’s instant boho babe à la Alberta Ferretti. Better yet, their warrior associations mean they’ll offer serious swagger to this season’s military mood (I’m looking at you, Jason Wu). And, as for my many thigh-grazing minis, by co-opting Church’s mannish monk-strap shoes I can walk that nonchalant tomboy line. With summer’s myriad new options—Andrew’s signature low-cut Zoya flat, which draws attention to my toes, not my ankles, is my new go-to—I can actually give my inflamed arches a rest. Whenever I look down, I smile— even though the ground is a lot closer than it should be.

“There has been a strong movement toward lower heels and flats,” says Erin Cerrato, divisional vice-president of accessories at Holt Renfrew, who finds shoppers pairing them with warm-weather standards like skinny pants and frocks, as well as with newer silhouettes. “They look fresh with wide-leg cropped pants and culottes. Women are exerting their independence and self-confidence and dressing for themselves instead of for others.” NetA-Porter’s buying manager, Sasha Sarokin, echoes the sentiment, revealing that clogs and classic single-sole wedges remain the luxury e-tailer’s top buys. She’s gunning for gladiator lace-up sandals and white sneakers to become the winning shoe styles of the season, pairing them with a knee-length denim dress in warm weather. Montreal-bred fashion director and street style allstar Caroline Issa is a recent convert. “I am definitely embracing flats more than ever before,” she says, citing Charlotte Olympia kitty loafers, Tod’s moccasins and Paul Andrew flats as a few of her current favourites. Indeed, the footwear collection she created for L.K. Bennett (Kate Middleton’s go-to footwear label) back in 2013 proved positively prophetic. “The little loafers with pompoms I designed might have been my turning point, my ‘aha moment’ when I realized flats could be fun and a lot easier to wear on busy days.” Her sole exception? The new irony-tinged high-fashion pool slide. “They’re interesting, but I’m not sure how practical they are,” she says. “Pool slides are for that—lounging by a pool.” Fair enough, but whatever the iteration, the season’s sturdy proportions might prove challenging for those without twig-like ankles and toned gams like Issa’s. Which raises the question: Can mere mortals with less than lithe calves work this look? “Proportion is the key,” says Paul Andrew, a Britishbred, New York-based cobbler who takes great pains to relieve the pains of women. He suggests finding flats with a shorter toecap to extend the leg. “There’s nothing sexy or elegant about a woman who can’t join her friends on the dance floor because her feet hurt. She needs to feel free to move and navigate her life, and a comfortable shoe

STREET-STYLE PHOTOGRAPHER TOMMY TON DESCRIBES A FAVOURITE SHOT

SARAH ANN MURRAY, PITTI UOMO, SPRING 2015

“Summer is generally a time for dresses, but I feel a suit can be just as feminine and, in many ways, more empowering.” “THE VIBRANCY OF THE YVES KLEIN BLUE AMONGST ALL THOSE DAPPER GENTLEMEN AT FLORENCE’S biannual men’s tradeshow Pitti Uomo speaks volumes. It takes a bold statement to stand out in such a well-dressed group of men. I love how Sarah, who’s known for always wearing a bespoke suit, has found a way to wear her fashion week uniform but in a refreshing, effortless way. From her mirrored aviators to her signature red lip, it’s the perfect balance between casual and elegant, and masculine and feminine. Summer is generally a time for dresses, but I feel a suit can be just as feminine and, in many ways, more empowering. You can easily wear a suit from day to night, either by keeping the same shoes or accessorizing with eye-catching extras. Sarah has playfully accessorized her look with jewellery. The stacked bracelets are very much a ‘Pitti’ style and are reminiscent of the menswear peacocks who dress up during fashion week. She’s also brought a touch of whimsy by adding pins on her lapels and that little knot on the striped Breton, which reveals just the right amount of skin. She’s put her stamp on a classic Florentine menswear staple.”

PRO-TIPS

20S TAKING ANTI-AGING MEASURES IN YOUR 20s CAN HELP THE LOOK OF YOUR SKIN IN YOUR 30s.

SKINCARE

CONFIDENTIAL An expert divulges her know-how to some of the most-asked face care questions.

AS A SKINCARE AUTHORITY, Dr. Gesa Muhr, a Science Communications expert at Beiersdorf AG in Hamburg, Germany, has researched it all—from why we get dry skin, to when is the best time to apply a moisturizer. Working with NIVEA, a brand with over 100 years of skincare expertise (15 of these spent researching energy coenzyme Q10, an essential ingredient in NIVEA’s breakthrough anti-wrinkle formula), Dr.Muhr understands the importance of caring for the skin. Here, she shares what it takes to get and keep, great-looking skin.

Q: WHEN SHOULD I START USING AN ANTI-AGING CREAM? It’s never too early to care for your skin. How the skin ages depends on the individual, style of living and beauty routine, but from a biological standpoint the ageing process of the skin can begin in your 20s. If you start taking anti-aging measures at this age, it may help the look of your skin when your reach your 30s. Later on, the skin’s oil production starts to decline and could leave skin looking drier, which may lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. At this time your main focus should be using moisturizers offering anti-aging benefits.

CONSIDER PRODUCTS WITH INGREDIENTS SIMILAR TO THOSE FOUND NATURALLY IN YOUR SKIN, SUCH AS ENERGY COENZYME Q10.

WHEN APPLYING SKINCARE PRODUCTS, GIVE YOUR SKIN A GENTLE, MINI-MASSAGE TO HELP BOOST CIRCULATION.

Q: DOES THE SPF IN MY DAILY MOISTURIZER OFFER ENOUGH SUN PROTECTION? Even if you spend your day between the office, home and the car, you’ll still be getting sun exposure, so give preference to a day care product with SPF. People with fair skin that burn or freckle, tend to be more sensitive to sun exposure and may need to reapply sunscreen more frequently, or use a higher SPF. Ideally, sunscreen should be used at every age—the earlier the better. If not, the effects of that sun exposure may start to show up when you reach your 30s or 40s.

NIVEA ANTI-WRINKLE Q10PLUS DAY CARE. $19.99 NIVEA Q10PLUS ANTI-WRINKLE SERUM PEARLS $19.99

Q: WHY SHOULD I USE A SERUM, A DAY MOISTURIZER AND A NIGHT CREAM? They are all important moisturizing products but each of them caters to the different needs of the skin. A serum instantly refines skin appearance, leaving the skin smooth and silky. An anti-aging day cream helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles by replenishing the skin’s moisture level, while a night cream may be richer and is meant to support the skin’s moisture level during sleep.

Clear out your closets. The palest neutral has become a wardrobe staple and emerged as this season’s chicest fashion palette.

SPOTLI�HT�ON�WHITE This milky hue is having a major beauty moment. Dramatically dusted on lids or painted onto the tips of nails, it’s one of the boldest and most flattering shades of the summer. While it’s taken a few seasons for it to move from a simple highlight to the main attraction, it’s time to give white its due.

Soft Copy

In a world dominated by fragrances that spring forth from a marketing idea, OLFACTIVE STUDIO breaks from convention, pairing a perfumer with a photographer to dream up a scent inspired by a photo. Next up is Panorama ($165), which blends fresh green notes, tingly wasabi and warm myrrh to encapsulate a shot of a West Hollywood landmark, the Sheats Goldstein Residence, overlooking Los Angeles.

BOOGIE NIGHTS

The hedonism of the ’70s permeates so much of what TOM FORD does; the latest example is his Shimmering Body Oil ($105), which imparts a golden gleam with a heady scent of white florals, amber and sandalwood.

Though PAUL & JOE were influenced by the gradient hues of a sunset for these three glosses ($28 each), we don’t suggest waiting until dusk to wear them.

The wet hair seen on the Spring 2015 runways was often achieved with unholy helpings of gel and high-shine hairspray. But a generous application of KLORANE’s Leave-In Cream ($13), with hydrating desert date extract, creates a fresh-outof-the-infinity-pool finish without the crunch, says Parisian hairstylist and Klorane consultant Caroline Bufalini, who uses the trick on editorial shoots. —Sarah Daniel

FULL THROTTLE

Heels, fresh eye makeup for bedtime and no caffeine— welcome to a day in the life of makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. I HAVE TO GET kicked out of bed. My assistant calls and says, “You’ve got an hour!” Then she calls me again 20 minutes before I’m supposed to be ready to make sure I’m up. Normally I’ve been a bit naughty and gone back to bed. The first call is anywhere between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. My sons get up between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., so sometimes I sneak down to be with them. Before I eat breakfast, I have a shower. I wash my hair and do a clay face mask afterward, and I keep it on while I’m putting on body lotion or choosing my outfit. I tend to wear dresses and have about 300 black ones. I have two wardrobes: a black wardrobe that’s very slick with lots of pencil skirts, and a summer wardrobe with lots of prints and chiffon and colours—very Stevie Nicks in the ’70s. And I only wear heels. After the mask, I put on Charlotte’s Magic Cream and Wonderglow, then my Light Wonder foundation. Sometimes I just do a feline flick, soft brown along the lash line, or I’ll do a bit more of a smoky eye. Then I do lots

of mascara, on my top and bottom lashes. I use The Retoucher concealer underneath my eyes and then I put on Cheek to Chic blush in “Ecstasy.” I wear my lip liner in “Pillow Talk” and “Penelope Pink” lipstick, and Filmstar Bronze & Glow—always. I wear fragrance, but it’s a secret mix until it comes out. For my hair, I diffuse it and then backcomb it, and I blow-dry the fringe. For breakfast, I have hot water and lemon, and either grapefruit or pineapple juice. I have eggs and bacon—I need to eat. My days are jam-packed, so I have to have energy. I also take homeopathic drops every morning. Then, I either go to the office or I have a mobile office on the road. During fashion week, in between shows, I’ll be designing a beauty counter or updating my Instagram, having a board meeting or talking about product development. I also try to stay in contact with my friends because I have a huge social life. If I’m in London, I try to get acupuncture or see a homeopath once or twice a week. I have to avoid caffeine or anything that makes me more hyper; I need everything to calm me down. I put out a lot, so I believe I have to put stuff back into the tank. I’m still very active as a makeup artist, so I do Vogue and Vanity Fair covers. I still do celebrities on the red carpet, but I’ve had to scale back on the shows. I say no to a lot of stuff, which is sometimes painful because I really want to take it on. You can’t do everything, otherwise you’ll explode. At night I see my kids before they go to bed. I always read bedtime stories to my five-year-old son. I normally lie with him until he goes to sleep. Then I go out. I go to events, dinners, parties. If it’s a crazy season, I’m out five nights a week. When I was in New York, I went to see Sienna Miller’s play at Studio 54. I always stay at fun hotels, like the Chateau Marmont in L.A. A lot of my friends congregate there. I’ll go down to the lobby and it’s like, “Hi! Hi! Hi!” I find it very difficult to finish work and just go back to my room. I’m an active relaxer. I don’t ever go to bed before 12 a.m., and I’ve developed a terrible penchant for these very thin black cotton nighties. I put the satin dressing gown overtop so I look fetching for my husband. I remove my eye makeup and reapply it, but not as much. I don’t really like seeing myself without makeup—it’s my thing. It’s not only about men. I feel more confident with it. —As told to Lesa Hannah FROM LEFT: WONDERGLOW ($65) AND CHARLOTTE’S MAGIC CREAM ($125)

BEHIND THE SCENES

FASHION SUMMER 2015


Beauty

From celebrating classics to reporting on innovations, our picks for the best in summer beauty. Compiled by Lesa Hannah and Sarah Daniel

TIDAL WAVE

In 2001, Bumble and Bumble launched Surf Spray and John Frieda came out with Beach Blonde Ocean Waves, creating an entirely new hair product category and inspiring countless spinoffs. Here, an oral history from the two brands behind the rise of salt spray.

HARRY JOSH, International Creative Consultant, John Frieda: “When we had photo shoots for Victoria’s Secret early in my career, like 20 years ago, I noticed that the hair was amazing by the end of the day and we got the best pictures [then]. The model’s hair had been blown by the wind so much that

76

it would clump and get piece-y and ropy, so it had this amazing look.” LAURENT PHILIPPON, Global Artistic Director, Bumble and Bumble: “I was on a trip to Tulum for an editorial and was with this girl…. We went to the sea and when her hair dried, it had this amazing texture. We weren’t sure if it was just something in the water, so we bottled some and brought it back to [the office].”

It was one of those products that I think people didn’t know they needed until it came out. Over the course of the years when I’ve been working with other hairdressers, I hear so often, ‘Oh, I had a bottle of sea water’ and ‘You guys were so smart to do it.’”

JILL LYNCH, Chemical Engineer, John Frieda: “Sally [Hershberger] really was the motivation behind this product. It stemmed from some early work that she had been doing with her clients TIM RUSH, VP Global Communications, because she thought windswept hair Bumble and Bumble: “It was a perfect looked really sexy on them.” storm of people thinking the same thing at the same time. I knew about SALLY HERSHBERGER, Creative ConSurf before I even came to Bumble be- sultant for John Frieda 1999–2006: “I cause it was really the first of its kind. used to be a surfer, so I was very aware »

MICHAEL GORDON, Founder, Bumble and Bumble: “There’s always a slight wind [at the beach]. I don’t know what it is—it’s the atmosphere, the humidity. Often if you come out of the sea and your hair dries, it’s got this very distinct, cool texture. So I simply asked the chemists if they could combine stuff and give us that kind of texture. That was the idea.”

JILL LYNCH: “Sally would cocktail jojoba oil with sea salt. She asked if there was a way that the product could be created. Not only did she love it, but her clients loved that look but had no way of achieving it.”

AFTER DISCONTINUING OCEAN WAVES IN 2007, JOHN FRIEDA BROUGHT IT BACK THIS YEAR (TO THE RELIEF OF FANS WHO WERE PAYING $100 FOR A BOTTLE ON EBAY). BEACH BLONDE SEA WAVES SALT SPRAY ($11)

BUMBLE AND BUMBLE SURF SPRAY ($30) SPAWNED A SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER AND, THIS SPRING, SURF INFUSION, WHICH GIVES TEXTURE WITH A BLEND OF OILS TO BOOST SHINE.

SALLY HERSHBERGER: “Nobody else was doing it. I was Herb’s hairdresser. That was our look. Steven Meisel was shooting with Oribe at the time and they were doing more glamorous hair. I was doing more grunge-surfer hair. A lot of people used baby powder and egg whites. They used hand soap [to make it] more gritty.” HARRY JOSH: “[Before salt sprays] there were other ways of getting the look. It wasn’t ideal, but you would use gel so it got crunchy and then put a pomade and stuff on top of it.” MICHAEL GORDON: “Honestly, [the formulation] was quite easy. It only took two or three goes.” JILL LYNCH: “Because the brand’s offices were in Connecticut, so close to the shore, they would actually hire young women with beautiful long blonde hair and send them to the beach for the day. Then they would have them come back to the office at the end of the day so they could capture what that look was and compare their products.”

MICHAEL GORDON: “We had this really fabulous bottle with black neoprene. It looked like a wetsuit. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen for hair. We had a fantastic French product de-

veloper. He said, ‘What do you think of this?’ in this charming accent. We took a couple dozen of these black bottles and a team to Florida. We cast some local models and cut their hair and sprayed this stuff in it. We started decorating the bottles with coloured Sharpies. It was a surfer beach party and everyone was decorating themselves with fake tattoos and drawing on the bottles. That pretty much became the packaging.” TIM RUSH: “They were looking for different things that were a cue for the beach, so there was the [neoprene] scuba gear and then there was the shape of it—like a scuba tank—and the metal hardware.” HARRY JOSH: “That texture didn’t really exist before [Gisele Bündchen] came on the scene. It was either the graduated bob, short pixie haircuts, CK One—that whole campaign and movement of heroin chic, flat-ironed hair. Suddenly the world had to have her hair. It became the most desirable look across the board, from edgy to middle America.” JILL LYNCH: “It was really popular seasonally; people would buy a lot of it in the spring and summer, but then in the fall [sales] tended to decrease. And while it had a strong following, it really wasn’t [strong] from a retailer standpoint—they wanted to see volume throughout the year. [We brought it back] because the trend that we started continued and grew, and now there is that demand [year-round].” MICHAEL GORDON: “We didn’t really care what was happening [in hair at the time]. It was just what we did. Did I think it would be a success? Not really. I didn’t think about it. In those days, Bumble was still growing, so we didn’t feel pressure to think about sales. I was thinking, ‘What’s a great product we can make?’ I didn’t realize it would be so successful until it was copied. I do think it’s the most original product we’ve made—definitely. I think it’s probably the one.”

of that kind of hair. I’m from California. When I come out of the ocean, my hair is genius. That’s where it came from. I used to shoot with Herb Ritts. His whole body of work from the ’80s to the ’90s with Tatjana [Patitz], Christy Turlington—all those nudes on the beach—features that beachy, really textured hair. I was wrapping their hair and twisting it with saltwater to get that incredible texture.”

CITY OF LIGHT

If you traced the lineage of Gisele’s sun-kissed waves, you’d arrive at JACQUES DESSANGE. In 1983, the Parisian coiffeur invented his “California Blonde” technique, which involved painting highlights freehand (now known as balayage). Dessange opened his first salon on the ChampsÉlysées in the early ’50s and went on to work with Jane Fonda, Meryl Streep and Charlotte Rampling. And Brigitte Bardot’s trademark golden hue wasn’t a result of her summers spent in Saint-Tropez; Dessange was the man behind the actress’s career-catapulting colour change from brunette to blonde. It’s no wonder the legendary stylist’s products favour the flaxen-haired. Recently launched in Canada, the range (from $13) includes several brightening shampoos and highlight-boosting treatments.

Seeing Sarah McLachlan, Jewel and a stage full of women perform Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” was arguably the highlight of the first Lilith Fair concert back in the summer of ’97. But getting free samples of Bioré pore strips as you were leaving the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre that night was a close second. The complexionclearing cut-outs had launched earlier that year, but not everyone had yet experienced the thrill of seeing their very own boreal forest of blackheads. Eighteen years on, they’re still the perfect beauty cheat to “reset back to factory settings,” with none of the potential downsides of manual extraction, like scarring and inflammation. Now comes a new charcoal-infused version that promises to absorb excess sebum to boot. There’s yet another benefit: The dark-tipped white stems stand out more clearly against a chalkboard-black strip for a better view of your handiwork. —Liza Herz

“The best sunscreen is the one you’re going to use,” says dermatologist Dr. Sonya Cook. While there are those who apply it no matter what, there are far more who shirk wearing it for a litany of reasons, from its texture to its opacity to its tendency to stain clothes. Recognizing that excuses, and therefore compliance, are still an issue, this season’s offerings work to solve a range of problems. Coppertone’s nozzle spray covers a wider area (think of it as using a roller versus a paintbrush); Neutrogena has developed “micromesh” technology, allowing sweat to pass through the sunscreen without compromising its effectiveness; Banana Boat figured out a way for sand to be easily brushed away when it sticks to skin; and Garnier Ombrelle’s SPF is so fluid, it feels like body lotion. And for those who’d rather avoid chemical filters, mineral options abound. All that being said, sunscreens are not a green light to sit out on your beach towel. “It should be your last line of defence, after you’ve already used your judgment. You’re not sitting at the pool at noon, when the UV risk is 12,” says Dr. Manish Khanna, consulting dermatologist for Garnier Ombrelle. But even the SPF police acknowledge that we need to relish the season while we can. “We have short summers,” says Cook. “We have to enjoy them or we’ll go crazy.”

Scottish designer Christopher Kane’s runway collections often showcase nudes and iridescence. But it’s his affinity for acidic brights that was best translated in his summer beauty collaboration with François Nars, a man who also has a thing for retina-searing shades (s’up Schiap, Exhibit A).

For a pair of Cara Delevingnes that can stand up to a cannonball, swipe on STILA Stay All Day Brow Gel ($44). It grows arches with a longwearing formula and comes with a double-ended spoolie and angled brush for brow-bar-calibre blending. And if taking a summer hiatus from mascara appeals, ESTÉE LAUDER’s Little Black Primer ($27) lends a water-resistant tint to lashes.

The stakes are high when you’re using self-tanner north of the neck, but forgiving formulas and innovative delivery methods are changing that. Take Vita Liberata’s Trystal Minerals, which can be dusted over skin like a traditional powdered bronzer for a glow that holds up— even after a double cleanse. And as our obsession with dry oils rolls on, St. Tropez offers a neroli- and lemongrass-scented version for the face that dries like it’s on deadline. For body, the brand’s latest breakthrough, Gradual Tan In Shower ($31), lathers up on wet skin like soap and can be rinsed off after three minutes. The result: a time-released hint of bronze (no drop cloth or oven mitt required).

That is until SHISEIDO unveiled its mic drop of a breakthrough with a technology dubbed Wet Force, which makes a friend of its longtime foe. The brand’s cultfave Ultra Sun Protection Lotion and Cream formulas (from $48) now feature negatively charged ions that attract the positively charged ones in water, creating a bond that repels H20 like your stainguarded sofa does a splash of Pinot Noir.

1. Toddlers have him to thank for Elsa’s tousled pompadour and side braid in Frozen (he was the hair consultant for the animated film). He’s also the man behind Effie Trinket’s teased curls in The Hunger Games and Lisbeth Salander’s shorn lid for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. “[She] had to be intimidating upon sight,” he says of the circular fade he gave Rooney Mara. 2. His celebrity clientele includes everyone from Lady Gaga to The B-52s to Cate Blanchett to Natalie Portman (“I’ve been working with her since she was 14”).

3. He was once represented by the talent agency started by fellow hairstylist Oribe, with whom he also opened a salon. 4. Danilo met longtime friend Gwen Stefani when he was doing hair backstage at Vivienne Westwood. “It was around the time of ‘Ex-Girlfriend,’ so [she had] pink braids and braces. She walked in and it was incredible,” he says. Stefani was just as smitten. “Afterward, I begged to have him flown in for our ‘Simple Kind of Life’ video. He gave me this really big pink afro and I’ve been addicted to

him ever since,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. 5. He doesn’t believe that washing your hair less often keeps it healthy. “Skin regenerates itself but hair needs all the help it can get, and keeping your hair dirty doesn’t do it. It will make you a beautiful caveman—that’s about it.” 6. For the 40 years he’s been wearing guyliner, his go-to has been “naturally made Persian eyeliner.” But lately he’s been switching things up. “I’m always looking for something that is as natural as possible.”

ICE AGE

Call it Frozen for the beauty set. Legions of women are dipping into sub-zero temperatures with the hopes of rewinding the clock. WENDY SCHMID reports. ATHLETES WERE THE EARLY ADOPTERS. MODELS ARE MAKING IT part of their pre-runway prep. High-profile actresses are doing it, too. What does it require? An open mind and an iron will—for three minutes, at least. Full-body cryotherapy, or deep-freezing yourself in a reverse sauna chilled by liquid nitrogen, is the latest anti-aging therapy to hit the beauty scene. The rather sci-fi explanation is that regular dips in a chamber brought to nearly –157°C may uniformly tighten skin, boost collagen and diminish cellulite. It’s a heady one, but is it too good to be true? Current data doesn’t exist to back up cryotherapy’s beauty claims, yet the hopeful (Demi Moore and Jessica Stam included) turn up in droves to put themselves on ice. A prominent clientele jets into British Columbia’s Sparkling Hill Resort to experience North America’s first walk-in cryo chamber at KurSpa, often doing double sessions over five- to 10-day stays. Toronto’s Cryotherapy Health and Wellness plans to open new locations in the city, and clinics are rapidly expanding in the U.S. Manhattan’s KryoLife will have sites in 12 states this year, and Cryohealthcare is in the midst of setting up four new spots in Los Angeles. “When we opened five years ago, we had five clients

90

a week. Now we have 100 a day—and that’s just word-of-mouth referrals,” says Emilia Kuehne, who co-founded Cryohealthcare with her husband, Dr. Jonas Kuehne. The possible health and beauty gains aren’t without pain, however. Cryo’s Arctic cold is extreme (frostbite is a risk), causing the body to shunt blood toward the core to keep its temperature stable. Once outside the chamber, blood rushes back to the extremities and skin, creating a rosiness that lures in some fans pre-party. “It’s a definite shock to the body,” says Paul Bradshaw, KurSpa’s kinesiologist. “Having your head immersed forces you to breathe in air that’s twice as dense as room-temperature air, so you get an oxygen boost. And obviously there’s a circulatory response, so there’s potential for beauty side effects like a glow, but we focus more on the wellness aspect of reducing inflammation.” Cryotherapy was originally developed in Japan in the late ’70s to treat rheumatoid arthritis. In some European countries it’s an accepted medical treatment, shown to alleviate inflammatory skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema. But its main claim to fame has been as an inflammationreducing recovery tool for professional athletes. (The Toronto Raptors have a team chamber.) “Cryotherapy causes a release of cytokines, proteins we measure as blood markers in studies,” says Jonas, who notes that plastic surgeons are now regularly sending patients. “After a session, antiinflammatory cytokines are elevated and pro-inflammatory cytokines are decreased. That’s a simplified explanation of how it fights full-body inflammation and why it’s viewed as beneficial for everything from autoimmune conditions to muscle soreness to post-surgery recovery.” Icing after cosmetic procedures is typically recommended to hasten healing, and time in the chamber can act as a supercharged dose of it. “People don’t want to advertise that they just had plastic surgery, and the decrease in downtime is astonishing. It’s quite popular,” says Jonas, rattling off recent examples: One client with a severe hematoma after lipo improved in three days. Another came in right after a nose job with eyes all but swollen shut, and by the time she left, the swelling had gone down so much her eyes were fully open. »

Filler and Botox fans also come (24 hours post-injection) to sidestep bruising. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Leif Rogers has sent patients to the clinic and sees it as safe and effective post-op. “Pain and swelling are related to inflammation, and we know this decreases it,” he says. “One patient, an avid hiker who’d once climbed Denali, wanted to be active as soon as possible after lipo and breast reconstruction. She did six cryo sessions two weeks after surgery and was back hiking in a week. It cut her recovery time by about half.” In the beauty world, anti-inflammatory topicals, treatments and diets are regularly used to promote youthful skin, but fighting inflammation isn’t cryo’s only anti-aging calling card. The extreme cold may trigger the growth of new collagen. “It flash-freezes the outer layers of the skin, penetrating a few millimetres to the dermis and subcutaneous layer,” says Jonas. “It’s hard to measure these things and we don’t have studies, but regulars report increased tone and elasticity with cumulative effects.” At KryoLife, demand for cryofacials has exploded in the past three months, according to coowner and CEO Joanna Fryben. “Clients have told me their traditional facialists notice the improvements and ask what they’ve been doing,” she says. Cryohealthcare also offers the treatments, which involve directing a cold beam of pressurized nitrogen on the face, neck and scalp for a matter of minutes. Five sessions are recommended to gradually rev collagen, but the immediate takeaway—no more puffiness—draws A-listers. Committed fans swear cryofacials minimize pores, tighten skin and, in some cases, prompt hair growth. “One of my clients did a series and had amazing results. Her hair seemed fuller and her skin looked tighter and more toned,” says L.A.-based hair colourist Johnathan Gale of Sally Hershberger Salon. Manhattan dermatologist Dr. Francesca Fusco is more circumspect. In the dermatology realm, cryotherapy typically refers to liquid nitrogen zapped in tiny bursts to remove warts, keratoses and skin cancers. “The facials would immediately take away swelling and puffiness, making

the face look tighter, but otherwise I don’t know. When extremes of heat are applied to skin, as with ultrasound or radiofrequency, it can stimulate collagen remodelling through injury. So, I’m hypothesizing here, but it’s possible that when the fibroblasts in the skin are exposed to extreme cold it could do the same, but it’s questionable. Of course, if you’d said 15 years ago that we’d be using these heat modalities to remodel collagen and tighten skin, I would have said, ‘What?!’” Cryoshaping, however, gets Fusco’s measured vote. In this case, the nitrogen is beamed onto stubborn fatty deposits and cellulite-ridden spots to freeze away fat cells (Cryolipolysis). One potential benefit over Coolsculpting: Larger areas can be uniformly treated without the skin stretching from negative-pressure suction. “Studies have proven you can destroy fat with extreme cold, but it’s easier to destroy tissue than fat, so you have to be careful with it,” says Fusco. It’s possible these treatments may be enhanced by the subtle metabolismboosting effects of the chamber, a draw for models in preparation for fashion week. In an effort to stay warm, the body upregulates the metabolic rate, increasing calorie burn with lasting effects that can take two to three days to return to baseline, explains Hollywood nutritionist Haylie Pomroy, who’s known for helping Jennifer Lopez maintain her age-defying shape. “But there’s another aspect that’s not often talked about. Cryotherapy’s extreme cold can increase the accessibility of your body’s growth hormone, which has whole-body anti-aging effects but diminishes as we get older.” Hoping to rewind the clock, Gale gave cryo a try: “I didn’t get the same benefits as my client, but I was definitely euphoric afterward.” Post-session bliss—a result of endorphins flooding the body—is a happy side effect and one reason cryo is used to treat mood disorders in Europe. And isn’t happiness supremely youthful? According to Emilia, some buoyant regulars ask to bring vodka into the chambers. “We’re like a medical office, not a vodka lounge,” she laughs. “But it would probably feel great to do a shot afterward when you’re already feeling elated.”

LONG HAUL Endurance sports are suddenly in fashion. YUKI HAYASHI investigates the reasons why women everywhere are racing to the finish line.

YOU’RE NOT IMAGINING IT: EVERYONE YOU KNOW IS training for a half marathon. From lunchtime sweat sessions to trading Friday night cocktails for early morning runs, increasing numbers of your friends are sacrificing social time to log training miles. Or maybe you’re friends with a triathlete, in which case it has probably been weeks since you’ve seen her, since her typical pre-race training includes 12 to 15 hours a week of swimming, biking and running, not to mention weight training and yoga. Yet in spite of the extreme time commitment required, endurance sports, such as distance running and triathlons, are booming, largely fuelled by female participation. »

Sixty-one per cent of the nearly 2 million runners who completed a 21.1-kilometre half marathon in the U.S. in 2013 were women. The percentage of female marathoners has also risen over the past decade, now accounting for 43 per cent of finishers in the 42.2-kilometre distance event. Even the gruelling Ironman triathlon (which consists of a 3.8-kilometre open-water swim, followed by a 180-kilometre bike ride and, finally, a full marathon run) is attracting more women than ever: Last year 26 per cent of its North American participants were female, an 80 per cent jump since 2010. There are a number of reasons for the growing popularity of endurance sports: Studies show regular exercise will make you healthier, happier and more fit. Endurance training packs additional benefits. “The heart strengthens, improving its ability to circulate blood, and the muscles become more efficient at utilizing energ y aerobically,” says exercise physiologist Kelly MackenzieRife, who is based in Courtenay, B.C. Translation: You can go harder and longer, kicking up your comfort zone from 5K territory to half marathons and beyond. (That said, increasing your mileage too quickly could lead to overtraining, knee pain or stress fractures. To avoid this, never add more than 10 per cent to the distance you ran the week before.) Beginners should follow a training plan from a reputable source like Runner’s World or join a running clinic, but talk to your doctor before starting. (In some cases, extreme endurance training can be harmful, though studies show this is more of a concern for middle-aged men.) For many busy professionals, endurance training is also about unplugg ing from today’s hyper-connectivity. “I train alone. It’s my ‘me time,’ and I enjoy it,” says half marathoner Vicky Shaughnessy, 33, director of art and visual communications at Pink Tartan in Toronto. “The long hours of training are meditative. It’s a chance to get away from the busyness of ‘real life’ for a bit, reflect on the day and think about anything—or nothing at all,” says Karin Olafson, a web editor in Calgary. The 25-yearold triathlete and half marathoner completed her first half Ironman last year. But it’s not just health and wellness. Let’s be honest: How you work out says a lot about your identity (compare tough-chick CrossFit to earth-mama yoga, for example). For runners, the bragging rights come in the form of mud-splattered running shoes and tweets like “18Ks in the bag! #NBD!” And who could blame them? (Though it can make you feel pretty bad about just walking the dog.) Endurance events are badass, while on-brand with your fabulous life: Destination races, post-long-run brunches, covetable running clothes—fitting, since some racecourses could be mistaken for runways. Models Natalia Vodianova and Karlie Kloss took time out of Paris Fashion Week to run the Paris Half Marathon in March. On Instagram, Kloss jokingly credited »

her sub-two-hour finish time to all the time she spent strutting on the catwalk that season. Meanwhile, Christy Turlington Burns has run two of America’s biggest races: the New York City Marathon and the Chicago Marathon. Race organizers are chasing the booming female market. Canada’s hottest half marathon is Lululemon’s SeaWheeze in Vancouver, which pairs its Pacific backdrop with a fi nish line festival and plenty of yoga. The international Nike Women’s Race Series includes the popular Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco, where, in lieu of a clunky medal, finishers get a sleek Tiffany & Co. finish necklace. Disney’s RunDisney marathon and half marathon race series caters to affluent moms eager to combine a family vacation with their quest for a personal-best finish time. The girly Divas Half Marathon & 5K Series hands out tiaras, as well as post-race bubbly. And on the triathlon front, Ironman’s Iron Girl program courts beginners via shorter gateway races. RunningUSA.org notes that in 2013, there were a staggering 28,200 races of varying distances, an all-time high. With all these events—and so many of them in the U.S.—travel is a given. “I usually enter races with my husband, as it’s something we enjoy doing together,”

says Shaughnessy. “We’ve travelled to races in Montreal and Ottawa, and would love to do a race trip somewhere warm like California.” Given the demand for marquee endurance events like the New York City Marathon, Paris Marathon, Virgin Money London Marathon and RunDisney’s Californiaand Florida-based events, niche travel agencies promote pricey hotel/race-entry packages. In some cases, this may be the only way to buy into a sold-out race. Hotels are also making it easier to train. The Westin Hotels & Resorts chain employs a “run concierge” in many locations to lead guided runs and has partnered with the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon Series to offer VIP race packages. And luxury hotels such as New York City’s Gansevoort Meatpacking and Gansevoort Park Avenue offer year-round running packages complete with route maps, energy gel, recovery kits and post-run brekkie at local hotspots, perfect for fitting your kilometres into a weekend escape. Clearly, fitness is about more than just health; it’s also about status. Hammering through an Ironman or even a half marathon—and having photographic proof of it afterward—is the ultimate trophy. I came to this gorgeous destination. I saw. I conquered.

Even if you’re not a supe, athleticwear manufacturers are going all out to ensure you look amazing on your run. It’s a good thing, too, because, as Toronto marketing director Alison Lawler-Dean puts it, tech features are important, but “if it isn’t cute, I won’t wear it. I like to have fun with outfits, introducing a lot more colour and pattern than I do in my dayto-day wardrobe.” Athletic-wear manufacturers are paying attention to this discerning clientele. Nike’s NikeLab features capsule collections from designers such as Pedro Lourenço, Sacai and Johanna F. Schneider. Adidas’s Y-3 and Adidas by Stella McCartney lines are revered for their fashion pedigree (the brand has also collaborated with Mary Katrantzou and Rick Owens). But even running stalwarts Brooks and New Balance are stepping it up with flattering body-con cuts and eye-catching prints.

“I go for acupuncture and massage and take Epsom salt baths to help my body recover. I also go to the sauna twice a week. It helps take the toxins out of my body and helps replenish my muscles. It also helps me drop water weight, because usually I am around 71 kilos, so it just helps me get into the 69 category. My training is very important, but the recovery is just as important. I also like to watch videos of other female weightlifters while I train. It motivates me. I can see myself lifting among them.” — Maya Laylor

“I get a minimum of eight hours of sleep. That’s such an important part of your recovery. At practice, I’m essentially breaking down my muscles, so sleep is when I’m building up all the damage I’ve done throughout the day. And ice baths bring down your core body temperature and any inflammation.” — Phylicia George

“Before a game, I need to do a lot of laps around the court to get myself set and ready. I don’t really count them; I do them until I feel like I’m warmed up. If I don’t do those laps, then I don’t feel focused and my mind is wandering. So I take that time to think and get myself ready. It gets my arms ready and my heart rate up to where it needs to be so that I’m awake and aware on the court.” — Melanie Hawtin

“I train 25 to 30 hours a week. I train like a swimmer, like a cyclist and like a runner. Before races, I like to hang out with my parents. They travel a lot to see me compete. If they are not there, I like to call them the morning of. A few hours before the race, I relax and close my eyes, focus on my breathing and visualize my race.” —Amélie Kretz SPORT: TRIATHLON HOMETOWN: BLAINVILLE, QUE.

We compete around the world; a local organization provides a pool of horses and we draw for one out of a hat. Then you get a timed 20-minute period and five practice jumps before you and your new partner have to perform. Horses are very sensitive. As soon as you sit on the horse, it knows a hundred things about you. The more relaxed you are, the more in tune you’ll be.” — Melanie McCann

SECURITY CHECK

Ignorance isn’t bliss when it comes to skin cancer. Here’s what you need to know. By EMILIE DINGFELD

FULL-BODY SCAN

WHITE KNUCKLES

Rosaleen Murphy was 30 when a friend pointed out a black, heart-shaped mole on her jawline, which she had never paid much attention to before. Murphy showed it to her doctor, who said it was probably nothing but sent her to a plastic surgeon to have it removed. The “beauty mark” was, in fact, melanoma— the deadliest form of skin cancer. Even scarier, an oncologist worried the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes (luckily, it hadn’t). “My daughter was young and I remember thinking, ‘Do I have to write a will?’” she recalls. Murphy, now 45, was never a sun worshipper but refuses to pursue that healthy glow. “It’s just not worth it.” As Murphy learned, preven-

tion is your best medicine, so wear sunscreen and protective clothing, and avoid the sun between about 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. But detection is also key. “The cure rate is better when caught early,” says Dr. Jennifer Beecker, chair and national spokesperson for the Sun Awareness Program of the Canadian Dermatology Association. She recommends a monthly self-examination, during which you note or photograph the location of your spots (you might require the help of your better half ). Don’t forget your scalp, the tops and bottoms of your feet, fingernails, toenails and the spaces in between—even check your nether regions, as a small percentage of skin cancers aren’t caused by the sun. “If anything changes, get it checked immediately,” says Beecker.

In a pharmaceuticalsponsored clinical trial, researchers at the University of Utah tested a new cancer vaccine made from the herpes simplex virus in patients with advanced melanoma. Sixty-four per cent of tumours injected with it shrank, while 47 per cent disappeared completely. It even helped reduce or eliminate tumours in other parts of the body. By injecting the cancer cells with a virus, it’s thought that the immune system starts to fight these cells as if they were invaders.

WARNING SIGNS BASAL CELL CARCINOMA The most common type of skin cancer, it’s often found on areas exposed to the sun, like the face, and can be mistaken for a sore or a pimple. It can present itself as itchy, painful and/or bleed; a pink or shiny growth; a red patch; or a scar-like spot. If it doesn’t doesn’t heal within four weeks, see a doctor. SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA This form can also occur on sun-exposed areas but is more likely to spread if found on ears or lips. Look for a wart-like appearance; an open sore; a raised bump with a depression; or red, scaly skin. See your doctor if anything sticks around for longer than four weeks. MALIGNANT MELANOMA This is the most dangerous skin cancer, as it spreads quickly. Use the ABCDE test to help determine if a spot is worrisome: Asymmetrical: Does one side look different than the other? Border: Is it irregular? Colour: Are there various colours? Diameter: Is it larger than six millimetres (the size of a pencil eraser)? Evolution: Has it changed at all? If you answer yes to any of these questions, see a doctor.

Soaking up the sun is more than just alluring; for some of us, it’s actually addictive, according to a new study conducted by Harvard Medical School researchers. They found that UV rays cause us to release endorphins, which give us an opiate-like response, similar to that of drugs. You’ve likely heard someone say you need to sit outside every day to get your vitamin D, but study author Dr. David Fisher disagrees. “It’s a cancer-causing way to get vitamin D.” Fisher’s reco? Take a vitamin D3 supplement, and don’t wait for an intervention.

DANCE

ON THE MOVE

How contemporary dance is high-kicking its way into fashion, film and our elastic hearts. By EMILIE DINGFELD

FOUR HUNDRED MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE. This is a click rate that is usually reserved for cats, babies and the occasional starlet meltdown, but it was singer Ed Sheeran who scored that feat. No, the crooner didn’t fall down during a concert or slur obscenities outside a nightclub; he did it simply by learning how to dance. Take the video for his recent hit, “Thinking Out Loud,” which is a mini film that has him swirling around a ballroom with a leggy lady to such lyrics as “kiss me under the light of a thousand stars.” In it, the pair’s eyes lock while the five-minute love song punctuates their moves and the camera pans up and down like a PBS documentary on Mikhail Baryshnikov. The result is one of Sheeran’s biggest hits to date, and a track that is destined to become this year’s most-played wedding ballad. In Sia’s video for her Billboard-topping “Chandelier,” a lone dancer (Maddie Ziegler of the reality TV series Dance Moms) garnered similar attention by sporting a nude bodysuit and a prim blonde wig and performing a series of spastic movements. The views equalled 650 million, the artist’s highest click rate to date. Which is probably why Sia employed Ziegler to go toe-to-toe with actor Shia LaBeouf in the controversial video for her track “Elastic Heart” (it went on to amass more than 230 million viewers, with some calling it inappropriate and even pedophilic). Sia tweeted her apologies immediately, though, claiming the diverse characters were meant to represent her duelling personalities. Though Ziegler, Sheeran and LaBeouf are some of the

public faces of this dance craze, the behind-the-steps choreographers are also getting noticed. “A lot of people think Michael Jackson just danced like that,” says choreographer Napoleon Dumo, known for dance shows like So You Think You Can Dance. “Dancers were always in the background…and all those [reality TV] dance shows made choreography step to the forefront.” Yet the choreography we’re becoming familiar with onscreen is different than what’s onstage at theatres, where works are meant to do more than just entertain. There’s a clear disconnect between what’s being created for TV, the runway and the stage, says Toronto-based dance notator Natasha Finlay, who has worked with leading Canadian choreographers, including James Kudelka and Marie Chouinard. “Sure, dance is more mainstream, but it’s also becoming more focused on bedazzling and being fast-paced. It’s not really about creating a mood or changing the way you feel about something.” Guillaume Côté, principal dancer and choreographic associate at the National Ballet of Canada, agrees that shows like Dancing with the Stars have made more dance lovers of the masses, but they’re not necessarily lining up to watch stage productions (his latest, Being and Nothingness, premieres at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto from May 30 to June 6.) “Unfortunately, I don’t think that bridge has been crossed as of yet. I think there is a crazy divide between what you see on TV and how easily accessible it is, and sitting for two-and-a-half hours watching a mixed program,” he says, adding that there »

For his Spring 2014 show, designer Rick Owens showcased his clothing on women of various sizes and ethnicities who performed a stepping routine (the dance form originated in the early 1900s among African-American sororities and is made up of moves like stomping and clapping), which had critics claiming it was among the top shows of Paris Fashion Week.

It’s viewing it as of Baryshnikov from ballerino to street-style dancer; if you’re in the same room. It’s seeing the clash of cultures; style that transcends the ages.

STARS AND STRIPES

Toronto’s LUMINATO festival (luminatofestival.com) rarely disappoints when it comes to bringing in big names in art, film and music. This year is no different, as musician David Byrne gathers talents such as St. Vincent, Kelis and Nelly Furtado for an original showcase called Contemporary Color. The pieces feature colour guard dance teams performing routines alongside the artists. Another hot ticket in the festival is 7 Monologues: The Night Dances, a choreographed piece that puts the spotlight on English actress Charlotte Rampling, who interprets the poetry of Sylvia Plath to the music of Benjamin Britten.

A Star is Torn

Amy Schumer’s online skits on funnyordie.com have done more than give her a few million clicks. Her viral chutzpah has also helped her snag a major feature film called TRAINWRECK. Also written by Schumer, the story focuses on a raging single girl (Schumer) who despises the conventions of monogamy. This all changes when she meets “the guy” (Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader), who clouds her convictions. Schumer’s cool is so far-reaching that Tilda Swinton decided to do a cameo for the flick.

As Nirvana mania descends upon us again, Lynn Crosbie’s latest book, WHERE DID YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT, addresses a few of the reasons why Kurt Cobain is such a resounding figure in pop culture. Crosbie’s novel centres on the chaotic mind of Evelyn Gray, a 16-yearold who wakes up in the hospital after a drug overdose to find that the Nirvana frontman is her new boyfriend.

FILMS

Although Cara Delevingne has already starred in a few indie f licks and made a cameo in 2012’s Anna Karenina, PAPER TOWNS will be known as her make-or-break film. Based on the novel by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, the film follows a wild-hearted suburban sexpot (portrayed by Delevingne) who happens to be the obsession of a neighbouring teenage boy, Quentin Jacobsen (played by Nat Wolff ). When she mysteriously goes missing, Quentin begins his journey to find her.

“AN OUTFIT SHOULD WORK IN ALL ENVIRONMENTS, OTHERWISE IT LOSES ITS FUNCTION,” SAYS Zai Rajkotwala, the 30-year-old owner of lifestyle boutique Easy Tiger Goods in Toronto. Before she moved to Canada in 2003, Rajkotwala called many cities home, including Hong Kong, Jakarta and London, but her style has remained constant despite her jet-set adventures. “I have more denim in my closet than anything else,” she says. “Jeans, shirts, chambray tees, dresses, jackets, overalls, shorts—on their own or layered together.” From Gucci to Stella McCartney, the spring runways were awash with bolts of blue, but Rajkotwala gives her look a street-style twist. A button-up denim dress by Steven Alan paired with a baseball cap, graphic jewellery (“My ring game is pretty strong”) and high-top trainers says sporty with a dash of ’90s nostalgia. But the self-professed tomboy shows off her girly side by adding a pair of Dieppa Restrepo sandals and a slash of Nars Dragon Girl lipstick for night. Whatever the destination, denim is her passport to great style. —Caroline Gault

MONTREAL BY PATRICIA GAJO

the TALENT Before VALÉRIE TOLILA , 35, took the plunge into fashion design she was a stay-at-home mom living between Portugal and Turkey. Lucky for us, the Montreal-born talent never gave up on her dreams. After completing a degree from LaSalle College in Istanbul (where Tolila nabbed a gig with Vivienne Westwood at the city’s first-ever fashion week), she worked with famed Portuguese designer António Augustus. Tolila returned home and, in 2013, debuted her label, VAIKEN (vaiken.com). Here, the stylish mom talks fabrics and finding her path. W H AT I N S P I R E D YO U R SPRING 2015 COLLECTION?

“I was going through my mom’s closet and I came across this gorgeous red velvet dress with bows. From there, my whole collection evolved into what is now Gitane Bleue.”

the BUY Canadian singer Kiesza hit the Juno Awards red carpet wearing BIRKS’s (maisonbirks.com) new Rock & Pearl collection—a duet of freshwater pearls and sterling silver. The Calgary native wore the stackable and double-finger rings (from $225), plus the silver studs that dangle three pearls behind each earlobe ($395). They’re definitely the edgiest designs from the jewellery house to date.

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR COLOUR AND FABRIC CHOICES. “I always pick the most luxurious fabrics—from chiffon plissé to silk—that come from France and Italy. I’ve also integrated a silver-brushed fabric that I am excited about. It’s always important for me to choose elegant fabrics with rich textures.”

After opening three boutiques in and around Montreal, ARITZIA (1125 Ste-Catherine St. W., 1-855-274-8942, aritzia.com) has added a fourth one on the city’s main drag. The largest Aritzia in Canada, it gives downtown shoppers two levels and over 9,800 square feet of trendy labels, which include the retailer’s exclusive brands Babaton, Wilfred, Community and TNA. You’ll also find select pieces by Adidas, Rag & Bone and local brand Mackage.

Known for its affordable Italian-made acetate frames, the brand shows off the modern aesthetic of its optical designs within a minimalist interior. Keep your eye out for the new Joyce sunglasses in champagne— a sunny fast-fashion fix.

WHERE DO YOU SOURCE MOST OF YOUR FINDS? MCKIMM: “In Canada

and around the globe through our travels, buying trips to design and gift shows in Paris and New York, and by scouring design publications from around the world.” YOU TRAVEL FREQUENTLY FOR WORK. DO YOU HAVE A SUMMER ESCAPE PLANNED? HOPSON: “We’re both pas-

range from wine-coloured bucket bags to neutral clutches and messengers. Here, she talks about summertime necessities and her obsession with handbags. WHY DID YOU BEGIN DESIGNING HANDBAGS? “They are my kryptonite. At an early

age, I spent my allowance on any handbag I could get. Later, as an adult, I saved for designer brands. The touch and smell of leather with hardware placed in perfect spots—that’s what makes me swoon.”

DIVA SALONSPA TOP HAIR SALON OF 2014 IN CALGARY Multiple locations | 403.590.9000 | divasalonspa.com Whether you’re headed to the beach, pool or simply lounging in the sun, DIVA SalonSpa is a go-to spot in Calgary for a wide range of skincare, body and haircare services. A visit to DIVA will ensure you look and feel your best this summer. “Waxing is a great way to stay smooth, and since it removes the hair directly from the root, your results will last much longer than shaving,” says Ti�any Tiessen, an Aveda-Certified Spa Educator with DIVA SalonSpa. DIVA o�ers three di�erent options to remove unwanted hair: warm wax, hard wax and threading. Warm wax is a honey- or aloe vera-based wax that is applied to the skin, then removed with a fabric strip. Similarly, hard wax is applied to the skin and left to cool slightly, then removed using the hardened product itself. Threading is also very popular to remove hair

from smaller areas, such as brows, and involves only a length of thread and your esthetician’s skilled hands. In order to ensure that your smooth skin lasts, Tiessen recommends exfoliating your skin a couple days after your waxing service. Aveda’s exfoliating gloves or Botanical Kinetics™ liquid exfoliant are two great options for keeping skin smooth and preventing ingrown hairs. Moisturizing your skin is also very important, especially after swimming. Try Aveda’s Stress-Fix™ body lotion for up to 8 hours of added moisture. Following an e�ortless beauty routine is key with a busy summer schedule. “Eyelash extensions are very popular and a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors without the hassle of eye makeup,”

says Tiessen. If lash extensions aren’t for you, DIVA also o�ers eyelash and eyebrow tinting, a great alternative to mascara that will last for about 4 weeks. For special occasions and summer weddings, creating a sun-kissed look is easy using Aveda products. Try applying a tinted moisturizer like Moisture Plus Tint with SPF15, a pretty peach blush like Peach Lights, and Uruku bronzer for a touch of added definition. Finish o� your look with a swipe of Pink Hibiscus lip glaze. Get summer-ready at DIVA SalonSpa with these services and products available at any of the seven convenient locations across Calgary.

Swimsuit season won’t be synonymous with mortal anguish if Julia Church has anything to do with it. Her swimwear line, NETTLE’S TALE (nettlestale.com), celebrates the female figure in all its forms with suits inspired and modelled by her friends. Here, the 26-yearold Vancouverite discusses her motivations and latest designs. WHY DID YOU BEGIN DESIGNING SWIMWEAR? “While I was recre-

ating one of my own favourite swimsuits a few summers ago, a few friends—all different shapes and sizes—loved the bottoms. I thought to myself, ‘Why don’t more swimwear companies care about how their product makes a customer feel?’ Also, I’m a Canadian girl through

and through—I love jumping in lakes, waterskiing and floating down creeks.” YOUR SUITS ARE INSPIRED BY WOMEN YOU KNOW. HOW DID THAT IDEA COME ABOUT? “The friends who

loved my first design sparked the concept because they represented the everyday woman. I want to be [their] voice and tell their stories of adventure and body image.” TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEWEST STYLES. “The Misty isn’t your mom’s

one-piece. Creative types will love the colours and the surprise cut-out. The Julia is for ladies who want to feel like Marilyn Monroe—a bold red style with an underwire. The Stacey romper is a quirky three-piece. It’s versatile and very Vancouver—swim in it, bike in it, use it as a coverup or wear the straps up or down.”

Our cross-Canada swimwear guide has everything you need to make a splash this summer at your favourite watering hole.

H&M 73 locations across Canada, hm.com. You don’t need a Gisele Bündchen body to get all poolside eyes on you, because a black bikini with fringe down to the knee from this Swedish retailer does the trick. Equally eye-catching is the plunging one-piece, the silver scuba twopiece and the cut-out suit covered in pop art pineapples. Cover-ups take their cue from the ’70s; think slinky jumpsuits, breezy caft ans and wideleg beach trousers. HOLT RENFREW Nine locations across Canada, holtrenfrew.com. Chromophobes, it’s time to overcome your colour fear. Ease in with a Mara Hoffman number that’s mostly black with little pops of neon or jump in with an all-over printed one-piece from We Are Handsome or a bandeau bikini by Lenny Niemeyer. When you need a palette cleanser, slip on an Eberjey all-white linen tunic or a Vitamin A black mesh rash guard. HUDSON’S BAY 90 locations across Canada, thebay.com. There’s a bounty of sea-worthy suits here— yes, even nautical stripes—from Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Trina Turk, Nanette Lepore and Oakley. The one-piece is hotter than ever, and the latest line the retailer has brought in, L Space, does it right— updated with a deep-V and cut-outs, the haltered Portofino style sizzles. JOE FRESH 15 locations across Canada, joefresh.com. High-waist bottoms, underwire tops and rash guards join Joe’s mix of mix-andmatch styles. The two coolest colour

In one towel swoop, the whole family can suit up for beach season—sunglasses, flip-flops, totes and all. For women (there are plus sizes, too), the swimwear styles span from sporty to ’60s bombshell in geometric, folkloric and tropical prints. The balconette bikini is a perennial favourite for its adjustable straps and moulded, padded cups that provide shapely support. ROXY Nine locations across Canada, roxy.com. While you work on hanging 10 like pro surfer Stephanie Gilmore, there’s no harm in looking the part. The Pop Surf collection includes colour-blocked brights and black and white athletic silhouettes— the Optic Nature onesie will make you stand out on that SUP.

FOCUS riasattic.ca. From Freya to Fantasie, Huit and Prima Donna, the brands shipped to this boutique are focused on flattering shapes and supportive features. Highwaisted bikini bottoms and long-line tops nod to the crop top trend, while plus-size suits by Elomi come with a support bandeau, removable straps and a control brief.

VANCOUVER THE JUST CRUSIN’ SHOPPE 890 Howe St., Vancouver, 604-688-2030, justswimwear.com. If finding a great suit is a numbers game, this downtown swim mecca’s 35 years, 65 lines and vast size range (4 to 46) put the odds in your favour. If you’re looking for a sport suit with D or E cup support, this shop has brought in its largest selection ever (Sunmarin does a sultry one in black and white). Another stunner is Seafolly’s geometric Costa Maya collection—one crop top, in particular, is a hot seller for its beach-to-street versatility.

NORTH SHORE GIRL 1625 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver, 604-983-7245. Triangle tops and tie-side bottoms hold their place in the bikini hall of fame, but the 1:52 PM new stars of swim at this North Van shop are high neck, bustier and flouncy tops with multi-strap or Brazilian cut bottoms. Go wild with colours and prints—they needn’t match. Maaji and L Space are your best brand bets for checking off all these trends. PACIFIC BOARDER 1793 W. Fourth Ave., Vancouver, 604-734-7245, and 3238 King George Highway, White Rock, B.C., 604-538-0082, pacificboarder.com. Bandeau-style bralettes with removable straps to bridge the gap between swimming and sunning are a must—find Vitamin A, Volcom and Roxy styles. For active types looking for a suit that’s sexy and stays put, opt for Rip Curl’s Mirage colour-block bikini. Bonus: The bottoms are reversible. Reported by Joy Pecknold (National and Vancouver); Patricia Gajo (Montreal); Lindsay Tapscott (Toronto); and Caroline Gault (Alberta).

LOVE

BROTHER VELLIES SPRING 2015 AN EASY WAY TO RATIONALIZE OUR APPETITE for fast fashion is to donate castoffs to a worthy foreign cause. But, according to Aurora James, creative director of handcrafted footwear label Brother Vellies, the flood of used clothes to a continent like Africa was hurting its local artisan class. “That was the vibe in the ’80s and ’90s,” says Brooklyn-based, Canadianborn James. “Donate your clothes to Africa.” James, however, had long been enchanted with traditional shoe shapes out of Africa. The beaded Maasai gladiator sandal takes its name from an East African tribe. In Kenya, where this statement footwear is made, a pattern is used to cut all the leather pieces to size, then the long front plate is handed off to a female employee for beading. “Being able to take the pieces home while watching their kids is a blessing,” she says. “It’s a way to empower women.” The buckles are forged from scraps of brass and the feathers dyed a Maasai red. At least six people work on each sandal, which can take 25-plus hours to construct. “A lot of what they’re doing in Africa has a couture quality,” says James. And with only 75 pairs of the Maasai gladiators in circulation, it’s a look you’ll keep forever. — Jacquelyn Francis
