S/ rounds up the best in show for fash­ion, art, beauty, and film

Dis­cover the fan­tas­tic and fright­ful world of Guillermo del Toro at his first Cana­dian ex­hi­bi­tion at the Art Gallery of On­tario. Un­doubt­edly one of the most in­ven­tive film­mak­ers of his gen­er­a­tion, del Toro is in­fa­mous for rein­vent­ing the gen­res of hor­ror, sci­ence fic­tion, and fan­tasy. Or­ga­nized the­mat­i­cally, the unique ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures a glimpse of the cre­ative process, from vi­sions of del Toro’s child­hood to ex­plor­ing death and the af­ter­life. “At Home with Monsters” brings to­gether the el­e­ments from del Toro’s films with a di­verse range of me­dia. The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes sculp­ture, prints, cos­tumes, and an­cient ar­ti­facts all culled from Bleak House, del Toro’s cre­ative haven lo­cated in Los An­ge­les. Along with th­ese works, the ret­ro­spec­tive is ac­com­pa­nied by a fully il­lus­trated, 144-page cat­a­logue avail­able for pur­chase. “del Toro be­lieves we need monsters. To him, the im­per­fec­tions of monsters are found in all of us,” says Jim Shed­den, co-cu­ra­tor and the AGO’s man­ager of pub­lish­ing. The fas­ci­na­tion with ter­ri­fy­ing yet vul­ner­a­ble monsters is a way to ex­plore the imag­i­na­tion of del Toro. “At Home with Monsters” is on view at the AGO from Septem­ber 30th, 2017 un­til Jan­uary 7th, 2018.



From the head-to-toe dress­ing of days gone by—think along the stylish lines of Mar­i­anne Faith­full— to over­sized, hip-hop-in­flu­enced caps at Marc Ja­cobs, de­sign­ers put a lid on fall with state­ment cha­peaus. At Marni, de­signer Francesco Risso looked to the 1970s with black la­tex pi­rate hats topped in fun red shag. The down­home prairies in­spired the fuzzy base­ball caps at Coach, and at Gucci, cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele mined the trea­sures at Chatsworth House in Der­byshire, Eng­land, coming up with a menagerie of ec­cen­tric, aris­to­cratic de­signs, in­clud­ing a be­jew­elled pink cloche.



Give dull, fa­tigue-stricken skin a pick-me-up with Clar­ins’ eighth gen­er­a­tion of Dou­ble Serum, its best-sell­ing skin­care hero since 1985. Re­for­mu­lated and repack­aged, this po­tent, anti-ag­ing for­mula is en­riched with turmeric ex­tract in com­bi­na­tion with 20 dif­fer­ent plant ex­tracts, in­clud­ing ginger lily, goji berry, horse chest­nut, and kiwi. With its in­no­va­tive dou­ble-vial bot­tle—one cham­ber is water-based, the other oil-based— each united drop de­liv­ers the per­fect num­ber of ac­tives that deeply pen­e­trate into the skin to rev up skin cells’ five vi­tal func­tions: re­gen­er­a­tion, oxy­gena­tion, nutri­tion, hy­dra­tion, and pro­tec­tion. The re­sult is firmer, smoother, and more even-toned skin in just four weeks.



All-Amer­i­can fash­ion house Michael Kors is the epit­ome of jet-set style, and this sea­son has a new car­ryall that’s a must on any pack­ing list. Un­der­stated and el­e­gant, the Ban­croft bag was in­spired by a mar­ket bas­ket the de­signer spot­ted while va­ca­tion­ing in Cor­sica. Made in Florence, Italy of smooth, Euro­pean-sourced leather, the gold-ac­cented hand­bags are avail­able in four sizes, in­clud­ing a tote, a week­ender, and a cross-body satchel. It’s just the right com­pan­ion for a last-minute jaunt to the Mediter­ranean, or wher­ever your heart de­sires. Bon voy­age.



A step of­ten skipped back­stage was one of this sea­son’s most cov­eted beauty looks. Makeup artists got crafty with su­per-strong and flut­tery lashes, giv­ing mod­els’ eyes the killer at­ten­tion they de­served. At Tadashi Shoji, the vibe was Twiggy 2.0, with lower doll-like lashes faked with glit­ter and liner, while Emilio Pucci fol­lowed suit with chunky elec­tric hues. What­ever your style, get ready to pump up the vol­ume.



Hav­ing served as im­por­tant sources of in­spi­ra­tion for the late Yves Saint Lau­rent, Paris and Mar­rakech will be home to two new mu­se­ums this Oc­to­ber in hon­our of the de­signer’s in­cred­i­ble legacy. Lo­cated close to the Jardin Ma­jorelle, a Moroc­can garden pur­chased by the iconic cou­turier and his long­time part­ner, Pierre Bergé, the STU­DIO KO-de­signed, ter­ra­cotta-hued Musée Yves Saint Lau­rent Mar­rakech will con­serve 5,000 haute cou­ture gar­ments and 15,000 ac­ces­sories, sketches, col­lec­tion boards, and pho­to­graphs. The Musée Yves Saint Lau­rent Paris will take over the fa­mous cou­ture house on 5 av­enue Marceau where Saint Lau­rent spent nearly 30 years de­sign­ing his col­lec­tions. There, vis­i­tors will ex­pe­ri­ence an ever-chang­ing ro­ta­tion of ret­ro­spec­tive dis­plays, in­clud­ing an in­au­gu­ral show­ing of ap­prox­i­mately 50 de­signs along­side ac­ces­sories, sketches, pho­to­graphs, and videos. The Paris mu­seum is set to open on Oc­to­ber 3rd, 2017 and the Mar­rakech mu­seum on Oc­to­ber 19th, 2017.



For Cana­dian de­signer Troy Smith, reusing and re­cy­cling goods is al­ways an im­por­tant fac­tor. In his lat­est col­lec­tion, Crazy Glass, Smith show­cases the ex­tent of how to play with both glass and metal to cre­ate colour­ful and func­tional works of art for your home. In or­der to keep the glass the main at­trac­tion of his pieces, Smith re­moved un­nec­es­sary ex­tras be­fore adding el­e­ments such as liq­uid resin and Starphire glass. In us­ing rare and raw ma­te­ri­als, each piece be­comes unique in it­self and can never be mim­icked.



Club 57 shifted New York’s so­cial scene from Soho to the East Vil­lage, be­com­ing the cen­ter of coun­ter­cul­ture and cre­ativ­ity in the ’70s and ’80s. Ex­per­i­ment­ing with new modes of art, per­for­mance, and mu­sic, the base­ment club grew into an al­ter­na­tive space where art-school mis­fits and art-scene leg­ends, the likes of Keith Har­ing and Jean-Michel Basquiat, in­ter­sected. This Oc­to­ber, the Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art is cel­e­brat­ing the long-last­ing in­flu­ence of Club 57, with a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion and film se­ries that ex­plores and ex­pands on the in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary spirit of the post-punk club. “Club 57: Film, Per­for­mance, and Art in the East Vil­lage, 1978–1983” is on dis­play from Oc­to­ber 31st, 2017 un­til April 1st, 2018.



For more than 10 decades, Levi’s has cre­ated iconic cloth­ing that is uni­ver­sally loved and be­come a mas­ter in de­con­structed denim. The ob­ses­sion for pre-loved jeans and in­di­vid­ual ex­pres­sion has in­spired the brand to cre­ate a line that re­mas­ters clas­sic de­signs. Levi’s Fall 2017 Al­tered col­lec­tion fea­tures unique pieces that speak to the process of cus­tomiza­tion. The time­less 721 and 501 skin­nys come to life with twisted seams, cov­ered coin pock­ets, and darts with fin­ishes rang­ing from washed blacks to tinted in­di­gos. The op­tions are end­less when it comes to cre­at­ing a per­sonal style with Levi’s denim, and the Al­tered col­lec­tion has done all the work for you. Dis­tressed to em­bel­lished, it’s time to em­brace self-ex­pres­sion.



When it comes to ag­ing—hello stub­born fine lines and wrin­kles—the eyes have it. The thinnest, most frag­ile skin on the en­tire face, the eye con­tour is un­der con­stant stress from the more than 10,000 mi­cro-mus­cle move­ments it ex­pe­ri­ences daily. Thank­fully, Estée Lauder’s Ad­vanced Night Re­pair Eye Con­cen­trate Ma­trix is here to the res­cue. Packed full with two types of plump­ing hyaluronic acid, the fast-ab­sorb­ing, silky for­mula acts as a strength­en­ing cush­ion to help soften the im­pact of th­ese mus­cle move­ments, while work­ing over­time to calm puffi­ness and min­i­mize dark cir­cles.
