Festival Countdown – A Recap

Wednesday night we kicked off the Toronto film festival with our annual Festival Countdown event. Along with Canadian fashion line RUDSAK, who showcased their 20th Anniversary Capsule Collection, we inspired guests to get into the film festival spirit! Despite the rain, we partied poolside while dining on film-inspired comfort foods and custom cocktails.

Some of the irresistible eats included charcuterie boards from Vertical Restaurant, fresh Portside Shucker oysters, Fancy Franks gourmet hot dogs and Yogurty’s frozen yogurt! To toast the Fest, guests were treated to bottlegreen Sparkling pressés in Elderflower and Pomegranate & Elderflower (official sparkling beverage of the IT Lounge), Pommies Dry Cider, a selection of beers from Stiegl and FIJI Water.

After a fun-filled night, guests left with our Know-IT-All guide giving them a sneak-peek at the upcoming film festival events and film critic Richard Crouse’s top 10 films to see!

Here are some of our favourite highlights as we rang in film festival season in true NKPR style…

NKPR Loves Liu Jo Canada (Plus Win a pair of Bottom Up Jeans!)

At NKPR, it’s no surprise that fall fashion has our hearts aflutter. Summer is glorious indeed, but our time in the sun is gently eclipsing and our minds are already wandering to nippy mornings, falling leaves and luxurious fabrics.

Check out some of NKPR’s Liu Jo street style…

“There’s nothing like a 60s throwback to make a girl feel glamorous. Paired with neutrals, leopard makes a big, gorgeous statement.” – Lauren

Hello, Abbey Road! The swinging sixties are back – with a vintage twist, the Liu Jo leopard statement coat would’ve make even style icon Eddie Sedgwick jealous.

“The epitome of fall fashion is the marriage of comfort and style… I could live in this oversized houndstooth jacket.” – Krystal

Sky-high heels, mid-wash denim and a wild mane transport you seamlessly into the season. And who can resist a Liu Jo knit?

“This is my ultimate go-to jacket for fall! I love being able to layer with different textures to create whatever look I’m going for that day.” – Jasmin

The menswear aesthetic balances out an otherwise feminine outfit – reminiscent of the Helmut Newton woman and the YSL Le Smoking suit, the Liu Jo tweed asymmetrical zip coat is a tasty treat for a daring fashion palate.

CONTEST: In honour of our upcoming Canadian launch, win a pair of Bottom Up Jeans before they hit the shelves! ‘Follow’ and ‘Like’ @LiuJoCanada on Twitter and Instagram and tell us how you’d style your pair!

12 Hours At The Thompson Hotel!

From an inspiring performance by two-artist music group The Shoe to a fashion presentation by Italian fashion label LIU JO, the Thompson Toronto has been the hot spot this week! In just 12 short hours, the trendy hotel hosted two big events creating buzz across the city!

On Tuesday, Thompson Toronto hosted The Shoe for their Summer Tour featuring The Hunger Games star Jena Malone. The duo performed for the public in the Lobby Bar, followed by an intimate performance on the Rooftop Lounge overlooking the city skyline.

The following morning the hotel’s screening room hosted the Canadian debut of contemporary Italian fashion label LIU JO to  their Fall/Winter 2014/15 collection!

We can’t wait for more summer events at Thompson Toronto, we hear the Rooftop Lounge has a fabulous cocktail selection!

Some pictures from both events…

CFDA Fashion Awards – Our Top Picks

All eyes were on the red carpet (and on Rihanna’s barely-there dress) during last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. Hosted by film director and screenwriter John Waters, the annual event recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry.

Nominated for Fashion Icon of the year, Rihanna stole the show in a see-through, Swarovski-covered (200,000 of them to be precise) dress designed by Adam Selman. To top it off, she paired it with a matching head wrap and pink fur stole perfectly embodying her fearless take on old-school glamour.

We’ve rounded up our favourite looks from last night…
