Maison Kitsune x Shu Uemura

November 24, 2015

Over the past few weeks, Bianca and I were #blessed with a couple of cool opportunities.

1) We got to meet a bunch of cuties in Toronto and Vancouver
2) We got to get our makeup done by the ever-talented Taca and Julie, on-stage lol
3) We got the opportunity to ~remix~ our beauty routines (and this includes donning feathered eyelashes, orange blush, and blue eyeshadow)

It’s always awesome to be granted the opportunity to interact with other humans (and leave my lair/dungeon/computer time warp), and I could’ve pictured no better collaborators than Shu Uemura and Maison Kitsune. Not only did their much cute/much anticipated holiday collaboration add a whole bunch of *sparkle* to Bianca and I’s otherwise boring makeup roster, but it also taught us a few important lessons about makeup application and also life!!!

Also, ICYMI, my right-hand gal Krizia and I worked on this Wes Anderson-y style video featuring all Maison Kitsune clothing, the QT makeup collaboration in full, and a Snoop Dogg quote (because obviously). The video – which was shot over 2 days – embodies the spirit of the two brands – east vs. west, congregating at the core, mixed with quirky visuals and and off-handed sophistication.

SQUAD Pop-Up Shop & Exhibit

October 19, 2014

If you follow us on any of our socials, you know that we’ve been putting our sweat and blood into a pop-up shop and art exhibit that ran from October 16 – 18. Dubbed ‘SQUAD,’ the event celebrated the Toronto launch of our new clothing/jewellery collection, our big n beautiful team of creatives, and local/international artist-friends whose work tickles our fancies ;) ;) ;)

Although it took many a sleepless night and a Lindsay Lohan-style hospital visit for over-exhaustion, SQUAD was a huge success and now we got dat twinkle in our eyes every time we reminisce about it. If you couldn’t make it, click through the gallery above for a virtual tour.

Big ups to Olivia Genovese for being our right hand woman; Betty, Jamie, Janet, Krizia, Marissa, Tia #1 & Tia #2 for being the best band of interns ever; Trevor Wheatley, Winnie Truong, Tyler Spangler, Dahae Song, Monica Moraru, Rosanna Peng and Jen Cheng for showing beauteous ~arts~; Josh at Goodfellas Gallery for letting us get all up in his grill all weekend; the girl bosses at Common Base for powering our party; Mikey and Sophie for DJing; and – last but not least – Nich & Vanessa for dealing with our shit all month just because they were around.
