Hi all, if you live in Toronto, you’re probably experiencing an unfriendly winter with chill that cuts straight to the bone. Don’t worry, I’m with you!
Although style is a very personal thing, many fashion duos have proved that “Two is better than one.” While New York has power couple Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl and L.A. has extraordinary Song sisters- Aimee and Dani, Canada also has five fashion duos you gotta know. Let’s check them out today!
The Style Masters- Alexander and Justine
During my interview with Alexander Liang, Founder and Editor in Chief of Kenton magazine, a couple of years ago for a publication, I got to know the story of him being a young and successful entrepreneur. And after crossing paths with him a few times during industry events and fashion shows, I’ve also learnt about his other half- Justine, who he travels from shows to shows with. They both have great styles- distinguished yet accommodating each other very well. They now have a joined Instagram account: @StyleTogether where they share style, travel, food and love together.
The Backseat Stylers- Sharon and Tara
The sister duo started their most anticipated blog, The Backseat Stylers in 2009 and since then they have owned many awards and popularity. Although Sharon usually is the one in front of the camera, Tara also has a very unique style as well. In regards of their success, the sister duo is as down-to-earth as they can be. The first time I met Sharon was back in 2013 when I attended the World MasterCard Fashion Week for the first time. I spotted her sitting on the floor and taking photos in the Photographer’s pit . How cute is that?
在2009年成立了加拿大最有名博客之一的The Backseat Stylers之后，姐妹花Sharon和Tara获得了不少奖项和呼声。虽然Sharon一般都是在镜头面前的一个，Tara的穿衣风格也不容忽视。尽管姐妹俩非常成功，但两人还是相当的谦虚。在我2013年第一次参加加拿大时装周时，我在摄影区看到Sharon坐在地上拍照。可爱吧？
The stylish “Twins”- Bianca and Dani
The two creative minds behind Kastor & Pollux have taken the meaning of “BBF” to a very different level. Their eclectic and funky style only belongs to them. I was honoured to attend the launch party of their newest collection last year. These two girls were just too cool to be ordinary- both of them were having a beer in hand while chatting with attendees. Every time I looked at their Instagram, I always asked myself: why can’t I be as creative?
这两个古灵精怪的好朋友－Bianca和Dani是Kastor & Pollux博客幕后的创意杀手。她们令人穿摸不透的超高搭配技巧使他们的穿衣风格独具一格，特色十足。我有幸在去年参加了他们设计品牌的新装发布会，这两个小女孩可真算得上是随遇而安啊。各自拿着一拼啤酒跟来宾交流。帅毙了！每次看他们的Instagram, 我都忍不住问自己：为什么我就不能这么有创意呢？
Canada’s IT Sisters- Cailli and Sam
When talking about Canadian fashion sisters, the Beckerman sisters is no doubt the one and only. With their unique takes in matching and mixing, they always make loud statements wherever they go. From Toronto to New York, from Paris to Dubai, they bring the Canadian pride to the world. Their styles simply cannot be copied and pasted. Sometimes when I look at their outfits, I can’t help but asking myself: Really? This with that? But, interesting enough. They rock it with perfection and confidence. To them, they are the maters of clothing, not the other way around.
作为加拿大最出名的时尚姐妹， Beckerman sisters可以说是走到哪里，哪里就充满了他们的影子。从多伦多到纽约，从巴黎到杜拜，他们的出现让许多加拿大人感到自豪。而且，他们的穿衣风格是绝对没有办法被复制的。很多时候我都看不懂他们搭配的衣服，并会惊讶地想：不会吧。这个配这个？不过，奇怪的是，穿在他们身上就是这么好看和特别。对于他们而言，只有你驾驭衣服，没有衣服驾驭你。
The Fashionable Couple- Lisa and Marcel
Well, picking this pair as one of the Canadian fashion duos might be a stretch since they are both in London now. But since Lisa’s Canadian root is undeniable, I’m still very proud to include them in this feature. Although Lisa said she is a very shy girl, she for sure does not shy away from a great fashion taste. Her style proves that “less is more”! Follow their journey in London @TheFashionCouple
Too bad Mr. S neither likes to be in front of the camera nor is into fashion, otherwise I’d love to start an account called The Goofy Couple. haha
