Finezza: au nom de l’homme made a splash at Toronto Men’s Fashion week with its refreshing colour combinations and updated menswear classics; they know how to cut a sharp suit. Their SS2016 collection was inspired by the French countryside; the unique combinations of fabrics, prints and muted tones were sublime. The brand prides itself on its use of imported fabric from the finest mills in Italy and Scotland; paying particular attention to details normally reserved only to bespoke. The whole collection was French Dandy perfection (even the addition of the straw hats).

They even pulled in some celebrity support via Canadian diver Maxim Bouchard (pictured above) who walked the runway for them. When asked about the experience, Maxim said he felt more self conscious on the runway than he normally does in a speedo on the diving platform.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
