THE BRUNETTES @ Polo for Heart 2015

When one thinks of posh sporting events, many come to mind: the Monaco Grand Prix, Wimbledon, or maybe, the Tour de France. For THE BRUNETTES however, we always think equestrian first.

So you can imagine our excitement when we were invited by ANPR to cover this year’s Polo for Heart games. The 3-day charity event was held at The Gormley Polo Centre in Richmond Hill to raise funds for heart and stroke focused causes.

Chukkers and divot stomps—with champagne, of course—are what polo matches are known for. And although this is what draws many to Polo for Heart, the social event is also known for its fantastic halftime shows, celebrity appearances, boutique shopping, silent auction, gourmet lunches with drinks at exclusive donor tables, and daily contests for the best hat and best picnic.

But our favourite reason to go … is for the style, and the 2015 Polo for Heart games did not disappoint. Dashingly dressed ladies and dapper gents were a sight to see off the field and made for the kind of people watching that only comes around once a year. THE BRUNETTES will be sure to make Polo for Heart an annual tradition.

Ton Heukels by Umit Savaci for GQ Turkey

Top model Ton Heukels poses by the sea in this GQ Turkey editorial by photographer Umit Savaci. Styling for the feature is courtesy of Kaner Kivanc who dresses Ton in a wardrobe of graphic sportswear. 

Borrowing from surf apparel and racing uniforms, the stylist handpicks this beach photoshoot's statement pieces from KenzoGivenchy and Nike.  In addition to its textured leather pieces and artistic separates, this editorial illustrates menswear's recent athletic direction. Ton's wardrobe is layered and graphic, embracing functionality and comfort as well as youthful styling.

THE BRUNETTES Party with TOM* Spring/Summer 2015

Perhaps no one throws a party quite like TOM* (Toronto Men’s Fashion Week). With venues like the Audi Downtown Toronto dealership and College Park’s Art Deco spaces, TOM celebrated a week of men’s fashion in style with locations that spoke to both the past and present of luxury.

Mixed highball and blue moon cocktails, along with flutes of prosecco were just some of the libations on offer. Epicurean delights and mini bites had the throngs of fashionistos swarming the well-appointed wait staff. Curated dance beats rocked the house, while style enthusiasts posed with hirsute models, live-tweeting and instagramming the events.

Throwback Thursday: THE BRUNETTES Attend TOM* Spring/Summer 2015

With only a few days left to go until the very first, Fall/Winter edition of TOM* (Toronto Men’s Fashion Week), we thought we’d share some never-before-released photography from THE BRUNETTES’ archive of TOM*’s initial, Spring/Summer debut back in August, 2014.

The event, which was then held at the historic Fairmont Royal York hotel in downtown Toronto, brought together designers, media, celebrities, and industry for the best of Canadian menswear, fashion technology, and parties. Shown above in this Throwback Thursday post are some of our favourite moments from the event, as well as exclusive, backstage photography.

With so many unforgettable moments had from the premiere of TOM* last season, THE BRUNETTES can’t wait to see what surprises the event will have in store, at its new College Park location, when it kicks off next week.
