Forget Kim K’s oily bum. The biggest piece of fashion news within the past year, at least among Torontonians, was when Vogue magazine named Toronto’s Queen West as the second coolest street style neighbouhood on the planet. This was surprising not because Queen West isn’t fashionable. It really really is. But what I was more shocked about was that the world actually thinks about Canada.
To celebrate the shout-out, and this diverse lil’ neighbourhood that I call home, San Francisco’s Lone Wolf magazine put together a street style-inspired editorial featuring Canadian models and shot in the Queen West area (duh). Although many of these looks photographed by Alkan Emin aren’t exactly what I’d personally wear, I just can’t ever say no to a well-framed street style photo. And of course, the white skirt paired with the high top black sneakers is right up my alley.
