Métis artist Christi Belcourt collaborated with Montreal label Katrin Leblond
Using the Bee print from former Valentino collaborator Christi Belcourt, designer Katrin Leblond has developed a capsule of playful basics that includes leggings, sweatpants, a tunic and more. “Something I’ve wanted to do for a while is fabric creation,” Belcourt explained in a press release, adding, “I’ve always wanted to have pieces that I myself would like to wear. I am a plus size person and am now 54 years old. I wanted to participate in creating clothes that I would find accessible, comfortable and beautiful for all ages, sizes, shapes and occasions. Leblonds adds, “For me, fashion is all about making wearable art. It’s a way to create affordable art. A portion of the collection’s sales proceeds will go to Nimkii Aazhibikong, a year-round Anishinaabeg language and traditional arts camp on land in which Belcourt is actively involved.
Sentaler has launched its current # SENTALER4SickKids campaign
This week, Toronto-based outerwear and accessories brand Sentaler launched the fifth installment of its # SENTALER4SickKids initiative, which means proceeds from the brand’s signature ribbed accessories sold by March 30, 2021 will go to the SickKids Foundation. “In our children’s ‘new normal’ they can’t play closely together as they once could,” Bojana Sentaler wrote in a letter about the launch. “They can’t hug or hold their friends’ hands. Often they cannot even see when their teachers are smiling at them behind their masks. These are just the surface effects on healthy children attending socially remote schools or practically learning at home. But what about those who were already fighting their own battle? What about children who were already facing health issues before COVID-19 impacted our lives? In an extra gesture of kindness for those who need it most, Sentaler also drew coloring book pages to hand out to SickKids patients.
