What could be more exciting than my recent move to New York? Not much, but then I was invited to an eyewear store party. And you readers know how I feel about eyewear. (Hint: I like it more than chocolate. MORE THAN ICE CREAM, EVEN.)

Break out the champagne: The Big Apple is now home to the eighth MYKITA shop worldwide (joining Berlin, Paris, Zurich, Vienna, Tokyo, Monterrey in Mexico and Cartagena in Colombia). The 109 Crosby Street store is in the heart of SoHo (location, location!) and filled with some of the edgiest and eye-catching eyewear you’ve seen. The Berlin‐based eyewear brand and its designers are obsessed with superior design and optical precision. And like Volkswagens, all of the frames are made in Germany.
The party came with all of the chic bells and whistles: New York’s hippest packed in and plied with champagne in Marie Antoinette drinking glasses and a curb-side ice cream truck to the tune of New York artist ELEW (Dave Matthews, Lil Wayne, Naomi Campbell, Will Smith and the White House are big fans #nobigdeal). ELEW performed his insanely-amazing “Rockjazz” for us frame geeks, which we appreciated and enjoyed very much.
I can’t wait to spend all of my time and the very last bit of my savings here. (Don’t read this part, Mom!)
Take a peek at the store and the must-have frames below!
MYKITA New York 109 Crosby Street New York City, 10012 Monday‐ Saturday 11‐7, Sunday 12‐6 mykita.com
Beautiful outside and in!
Large and in charge, big and bright.
Neon lights on the ceiling, my kind of party!
Marie Antoinette wine glasses! Also my kind of party!
The beat master: ELEW = mind-blowing music. The reviews were right!
I love these neon-orange frames!
Colour doesn’t stop at your shades. Try a Côte + Ciel collabo eyewear case on for size.
Hello fabulous readers! I’m happy to post that I’ve moved to New York City.
I’m excited to work full-time with the talented, supremely smart and of course fashionable team at Stylesight, a global trend analysis agency with offices in New York (of course) but also London, Hong Kong and amazing correspondents worldwide.
Don’t fear, FashionTK will still be live and lovely and I’ll be posting my many editorial adventures here for you to peruse stalk me.
Please check out my newish social media things below too:
Attention all French-obsessed style sleuths! H&M is making Fall 2013 a whole lot more français with its new autumn collaboration with Parisian designer Isabel Marant. Le YAY!
I always look forward to H&M’s collaborations season after season, but this one is making me do cartwheels because Marant is so intuitive about her clothing. And here’s three very important reasons why:
1) She’s a graduate of the famed Studio Berçot. 2) She practically started DIY before it became trendy
(she’d alter and tweak her own clothes in high school) 3) She’s French (style is just intuitive!)
“I always try to create something women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain care-free style. I think this is very Parisian: you dress up, but don’t pay too much attention to it and you still look sexy,” says Marant.
Marant’s success started in accessories and then evolved into knitwear. In 1994, she launched her own eponymous collection and today, Marant’s brand of boho, androgynous, rocker chic is the foundation of her success and chain of boutiques worldwide.
Now, with her collaboration with H&M, this amazing style aesthetic will be available en masse and on-the-cheap. The collection—clothing and accessories for women and teens—will be available from November 14th in about 250 stores worldwide. Plus, Marant will launch her first-ever collection for men.
This calls for champagne!
Watch the adorable video below with designer Isabel Marant and H&M below!
Faulhaber: Tell us a little about yourself and what you do.
Glynnis Mapp: I’m a Toronto-born journalist. I’ve been dabbling in the trade for about 10 years now (if you count my internships). Typing that just made me feel really old (I’m not). I write fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle features and I’m the editor at my website, FashionTK.com. I’m a writer, editor, fashion nerd, lover of all things beauty, book geek, listener, talker, lover, fighter, sister, daughter, eater, drinker, dog-lover, audiophile, foodie and all around every day woman. That about sums it up I think.
F: Biggest career highlight? (so far.)
GM: That’s a hard one. There’s so many. I met Michael Kors who is like my fashion spirit animal (whatever that means). Lovely, personable, good shoes, really great skin. I briefly spoke with and met Anna Wintour while covering Paris Fashion Week a while back and she was extremely nice (I should say surprisingly). She was graceful enough to let me take a quick snap of her before the Dior show started in the middle of some serious front-row frenzy. Recently, I’ve been writing for New York-based websiteRefinery29.com and had a big feature on the homepage. It was up there for at least three days (for online geeks that’s a long, damn time). I get a kick out of seeing my byline every time it’s published, really. Like, hey that’s me!
F: Up until this point, what has been the biggest lesson you’ve learned?
GM: Be true to yourself. It’s kind of cheesy saying that because that cliché could easily be found on a T-shirt or one of those desk calendars with cats on them, but it’s extremely useful. I’ve been the most fulfilled when writing on topics I care about, designers I’m obsessed with and reporting on issues that get me so excited they keep me up at night. My work is the strongest when I do that and frankly, I’m much happier.
F: What do you love most about what you do? GM: I get to meet some of the most talented, intelligent—and weird—people in the world. And I get paid to do it.

Some of benefits of being a freelance editor? Well, there are many but one of the main ones is that you don’t have to break your neck to get out of bed, into the shower, dressed to the nines and dolled up so you can go into “the office” and sit in a greige-coloured cube all day. When I don’t have meetings, many of my pieces are written perched from a Starbucks stool, even more of them I hammer out on my Macbook in my pyjamas at my home office.
It’s pure bliss.
James Perse, the Los Angeles-born brand synonymous with laid-back fashion has a revamped store in Toronto’s trendy Yorkville neighbourhood (18 Hazelton Avenue) and is stocked with lounge-y looks perfect for my particular at-home office and for running errands around town. Super soft T-shirts and pants in a neutral palette of grey, honey beige, light and navy blues and black—the kind of relaxed wear that makes looking comfy look really, really good.
A closet filled with these separates would be a closet from heaven.
Scroll through these relaxed styles and the new store and imagine a life without suits, dress shirts, skirts and ties.
I have a soft spot in my stylish little heart for Ecco Leather. Last year in June, the Danish brand whisked off myself and a handful of other Canadian editors to Amsterdam to personally view the Fall 2012, Spring 2013 and planning sketches and themes for the Fall 2013 collections, plus an exclusive tour of the brand’s tannery.
We basked in Amsterdam’s quintessential to-do’s and the science and style behind making some of the best leathers in the world.
Now, every time I see a new Ecco collection, I remember the process of making the leathers—something I was lucky enough to see first hand. There’s nothing like truly understanding where a garment comes from. It’s that knowledge that makes purchasing a shoe or bag that much more special. To boot (ha, ha) the brand is celebrating 50 years of shoemaking. Bravo!
Warm-weather makes me happy. Why? Shopping of course! Time to sport your favourite summer gear and maybe even buy yourself a little something special.
But what to get?
A new top or dress would probably suffice but what about a stylish tchotchke or beauty toy that’ll keep you smiling the whole summer? If you won’t let an hour go by without tweeting, live by your RSS feed, have more apps on your smartphone and tablet than even your most well-connected friend, it’s time to ditch the usual seasonal buys for a shiny new fashion-, beauty-, lifestyle-inspired trinket instead.
Here’s a round up of six perfect items (as low as $7!) to give your closet, vanity—even your kitchen—a geek-chic upgrade.
Don’t get me wrong. Nothing can really replace pure wools, silks, and cottons, but from what I’ve observed, a cache of new textiles are quickly becoming just as commonplace as our old standbys. Designers have turned their attention toward new, hi-tech fabrics such as neoprene, casein, lurex, silicone, and tencel. Sounds fancy, sure, but what the heck does that really mean?
Instead of head scratching in the fitting room, I’ve asked a textile expert who helped translate the jargon. Introducing five fabrics that are making beautiful garments more wearable, sustainable, and some, more affordable than ever.
When it comes to fragrance, I love a good floral. Jasmine, lilac, verbena—I can’t get enough. But truly, I’m a gourmand through and through. Chocolate, raspberry, orange, cinnamon, coffee, caramel and cognac, I love the deliciousness of these notes. Researchers have already confirmed that our memory and sense of smell are connected. Making gourmand scents a completely hypnotic and hedonistic experience.
That’s why when the new cologne collection from U.K.-based brand Jo Malone landed on my desk with its notes inspired by English Tea, my stomach started to growl. Ginger Biscuit, Redcurrant and Cream, Elderflower and Gooseberry, Bitter Orange and Chocolate—simply divine dahling.
