The Culture Club: Our top 6 most-visited websites
The Auteurs (theauteurs.com). For a monthly stipend you can become a film buff in no time. The Auteurs is like Criterion Collection-meets-LimeWire. Pay by the film or by the month for high-quality, online cinema-on-demand. Soon you’ll be dropping references at dinner parties from the Coppolas to Cronenberg and the Coen brothers.
Face Hunter (facehunter.blogspot.com). We are such a fan of street-style blogger Yvan Rodic’s work that we are flying him into Toronto on April 15 for a private event, in collaboration with Balenciaga Paris.
The Selby (theselby.com) Founder Todd Selby gives us a glimpse inside the personal spaces of his black book of jet-setting friends. Each entry is eclectic, beautiful and showcases the owners’ individual style.
Hollister Hovey (hollisterhovey.blogspot.com). We have had the pleasure of getting to know Ms. Hovey and can’t get enough of her bon mots and stylish take on life. Her and her sister live in an incredible apartment in Brooklyn that is full of treasures from wall to wall. Each with a great and romantic story. Check back often for inspiration on your home design or the good life.
Luisa Via Roma (luisaviaroma.com) The website for this Florentine retailer is packed with designer goodies from the likes of Canadian Jean Pierre Braganza, Viktor & Rolf and Costume National. For Culturites it has become a one-stop shop for previewing designer’s new collections and window shopping. (P.S. They ship to Canada.)
The Society (thesocietyglobal.com) What can we say, we’re a bit biased, but we trust ourselves when it comes to cultural encounters in Toronto, NYC, Los Angeles and Miami. Check out our new blog as well: thesocietyglobal.tumblr.com
Ashleigh Dempster and Amanda Blakley are co-founders of The Society Global.
