That's right! Hayden Christensen is back for an encore presentation for RW&CO. Following a highly acclaimed Holiday collection, I'm so happy to hear that there will be a second collaboration!
I really liked the Holiday collection and ended up purchasing a few pieces. You can check out my posting here from when I attended the media launch event last year, where I actually got to meet Hayden!
It will be an 18-piece capsule collection for Summer 2014! I'm excited since summer's my fav season. If Hayden is wearing some of the pieces in these promo pics - I'm loving them already!! Great colours and is that a high-top sneakers in the sketches from the storyboard?! Nice!
I can't wait when more info of the collection comes available - stay tuned. The collection will be available in select stores and online May 8th, 2014! As for now, you can go check out the trailer on the RW&CO. website.

The Toronto World Mastercard Fashion week showcasing the Fall 2014 collection just happened last week. It was actually my very first time to attend the Fall shows! The WMCFW is Canada's premier fashion event that brings together all the best Canadian fashion to the runway. It happens 2 times, one in October showcasing the spring collections and the one in March, showcasing the fall collections.
It was a five days event which took place under a huge tent located in David Pecaut Square in downtown Toronto. I attended Day 3 and saw 4 shows! The runway shows I saw were Christopher Bates, Outclass, Klaxon Howl and G-SUS. All happened to be menswear except the G-SUS show which also had womenswear.
I only had my iphone with me, and I have to say, I had some difficulty taking some good shots. Any tips for me from those regular runway attendees? Here are some decent ones. I also have videos of all the designers I saw and their 2014 collections on my instagram account, here. For a closer look of the designers fall 2014 collection, you can click on the designer's name here. Christopher Bates | Outclass | Klaxon Howl | G-SUS.
FYI: What I wore: Layered, outer Jacket from Bluenotes, inner jacket from American Apparel, polka dot shirt from H&M, backpack from Herschel Supply Co.
|One of my fav look/jacket from Outclass|
|Loved Outclass's collection! |
The designer, like me, graduated from OCAD University!
|Love this look from Klaxon Howl.|
|Model from Klaxon Howl.|
|Denim on denim look from G-SUS.|
|A very cool looking backpack!|
One of the fun things to do at the WMCFW while waiting between shows was style/people watching! I saw many guys, including me, sporting backpacks. This one above was my favourite where I just had to take a pic of. It was worn by blogger, Bobby Raffin.
I really enjoyed my first Fall WMCFW! I loved the people, fashion, runway, models, spotlights and cameras - it was definitely a cool experience. For one who loves watching runway shows on TV and a fan of fashion, seeing it live was exciting and lots of fun! I can't wait to come back for the next one in 6 months! And hope to get to sit in the front row! : )
