Toronto street style
Rui Amaral, Fashion Curator
What does style mean to you? I think style is attitude, a mood. It’s not just about putting together clothes, it’s about how you walk in them, how you sit in them or how you stand while you smoke.
Define your style. Brideshead Revisited meets East London.
I feel naked without: A good scarf and bag.
Favourite part of Toronto? Dundas West by far. I love how the old Portuguese community co-exists with this new young crowd of creatives.
How did you come up with the idea to team up with the Bay on the up coming Anna Dell Russo & Tommy Ton event? I met ADR in New York while Tommy Ton was shooting her outside the Mulberry show during fashion week. Her energy was infectious and she had the meat packing district at a stand still while she posed for photographers. I wanted to gather that energy and plant it in Toronto! Knowing Tommy has photographed her for years and their relationship has blossomed before our eyes, it hit me that an exhibition celebrating the relationship of photographer and muse was a must do! With all the inspiring work the Bay has been doing I knew they’d be the perfect collaborators for the project!
What is it about Anna Dello Russo? Everyone’s talking about ADR because she is breaking the fourth wall in fashion. She is defying the stigma of the fashion editorcold,untouchable and serious. Anna is open,vibrant and accessible and we can’t get enough! her sublime taste, patronage for fashion and eccentricity has won our hearts.
