Rave: Osheaga artists

This long weekend, there’s only one question everyone’s been asking: are you going to Osheaga or not? A lucky few ladies on the fourth floor are heading to Montreal for the annual music fest, but the majority of us are not and are experiencing major FOMO


Because we’re gluttons for punishment, we compiled some of the acts we’re especially bummed to miss out on. Whether you’re trekking to la belle province, heading up to a cottage or hanging around the city, we hope this playlist gets your long weekend started off on the right foot. Enjoy.


Psst: because we think long weekends are nothing without music, we’ve created another playlist for Monday. Make sure to come back here and check it out!

Fashion-able: Rudsak Fall/Winter 2011 and a sample sale!

The fourth floor had the pleasure of working on the LG Fashion Week RUDSAK fall/winter 2011 runway show and it was wicked cool. Creative leader and RUDSAK owner Evik Asatoorian designs leather apparel, footwear and accessories and this collection was meant for today’s road traveler.

With motorcycle helmets in hand, the RUDSAK models, lead by Addison Gill, rocked the runway. Montreal-based RUDSAK is one of Canada’s leading leather fashion brands. 
Paired with leather leggings and fashion-forward harems, jackets were sleek in leather and down-filled in neutral khaki, tan, beige and black tones with fur trims.

 

Already known for luxe outerwear, Rudsak turned heads in the front row with equally hip footwear, handbags, and wearable separates. 
Men’s bomber jackets worked with wrapped scarves and cool combats.  
 
For trendy leather you can wear all year, carry a new bag from Rudsak. Can you say “it” bag?

The collection retained RUDSAK’s timeless feel with styles than can be worn wherever, whenever, and showed that the designer’s strengths go well beyond fab jackets. The stylish shoes, bags, pants and skirts had us almost wishing for winter again.
Surely, if ever there was a time to stock up on edgy biker-chic outerwear, handbags and accessories for men and women, it’s now. Especially because….
…RUDSAK is having a sample sale starting Wednesday, April 20 to Saturday, April 23. At 50 to 70 per cent off, zip over to 108 Tycos Drive, in Toronto, and fill your wardrobe up with sweet pieces.
