She's our cool Canadian sweetheart. Claire Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimes, has not only rocketed to the mainstream radar with her music, but her personal style is stealing its own spotlight. Grimes is a chameleon, her look is always evolving and she makes a box of Crayolas look monochromatic.

Style Icon: Nick Wooster

Posted by Drake General Store, 3 weeks, 6 days ago

“There are no absolutes. For every rule there is, it’s made to be broken and if you have style you can wear anything you want.” – Nick Wooster

That’s easy for ‘The Woost’ to say. This fashion week fixture + previous Men’s Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman embodies impeccable taste. With his handlebar moustache, tattoo sleeves + dandy style, Nick Wooster has been dubbed the “street style demi-god”, making photogs rush to capture his every (amazing!) look. What makes Wooster’s style so inspirational + ionic you ask? It comes down to his ability to mash prints, colours + proportions with the utmost of restraint. The result is always an undeniably cool look, which frankly would leave the average person walking around looking like a fool.
