OTD Season Debut

OTD (On This Day), founded by John Varvatos, announced the debut of its first season with an omni-channel introduction featuring the launch of their website and the opening of its flagship SoHo store. For the fall, the gender-inclusive brand presents a synergetic assortment of women, men, and unisex clothing as well as footwear, jewelry, and accessories.

Originating a narrative led by curiosity, creativity, and passion, OTD explores the modern experience of style and its inextricable connections to pop culture: traversing fashion, music, art, sports, film, television, architecture, etc. Through interesting stories that occurred “on this day” in the past, new stories are sparked in the here and now.

Storytelling is fundamental to the brand message, “As individuals, we instinctively create stories that define our past, allow us to make sense of the present and propel us into the future,” commented James Schuck, senior director of social media and special projects.

“In real-life everyday communications, storytelling not only reinforces and enhances our own personal narratives, it provokes opinions, interpretations and ideas. The crux of the message is: Write your own story, on this day and every day.”

OTD creates effortless-luxe pieces in elevated, unexpected ways. Their designs recall functionality, control, and tradition, but promote constant change, expression, and ideation. The brand flexes individuality with an ease, being intentional, yet welcome to interpretation. Pieces are ready to be mixed and matched with abandon.

To bring the vision to life, OTD tapped American photographer Mark Seliger. In a studio scene, imagery for autumn’s 2021 season drew on a simple visual concept to strike an impressive sense of energy. Dynamic movements and expressive poses are captured in assertive, yet playful moments to feel focused and eclectic. Unrestrictive compositions occupy the blank space, underscoring themes of possibility and experimentation. Created to reflect the lives of those lived in them, OTD reimagines essential silhouettes to feel fresh and modern.

For women, blazers, oversized knits and plaid overalls explore the qualities of androgyny. On men and women, tracksuits hit fall wardrobes with a denser, more structured take on sporty, available in interchanging jackets and pants. There are side-striped, racer striped, and multi-striped items, as well as color-blocked and paneled jackets in animal jacquard. In unisex, knits are easy wearing, yet surprisingly elevated. From reversible coats and shirt jackets to an ultra-cozy mohair sweater in 100% linen, the concept, “between-season dressing,” gets a multi-season update.

Function plays with form in sport-inspired pieces like french terry sweats, basketball tanks, and hockey jerseys in sweater constructions. As for jackets and coats, sleek leather informs both biker styles and traditional coat silhouettes. The micro-quilted jackets, a garment-dyed trench and plush velvet puffer style, upholds tactile characteristics. There comes a leisure twist in unrestrictive materials and modern proportions, interchangeably styled with OTD premium-crafted leather sneakers and combat boots. Its refined fabrications and thoughtful details keep the focus on wearability.

With this season’s lineup, OTD cements an existence at the convergence of tailored, sport, and casual cool. The company redefines expectations for style and culture, taking on a perspective as the agents of next. Their collaborations in art and design are available online and in stores.

The launch of the OTD × King Baby jewelry unveils an androgynous range of rings, bracelets, and necklaces. This collection unites the standards of OTD with the artisanship qualities of King Baby. Each piece is made from pure sterling silver, designed and handcrafted in the U.S. In stores, shoppers can purchase an exclusive selection of iconic photography, co-curated by Timothy White × OTD. The project will evolve with each season, like a rotating gallery, reflecting the brand’s innate connection to pop culture.

The brand opened its 4,000 square foot shop in the heart of SoHo, on the corner of Spring and West Broadway. Elements include wide widows open to a bright and airy space, revealing a structural framework of continuous, clean lines, natural light, and minimal concrete floors. The raw and natural elements of the space contain curvaceous design elements such as wavy light fixtures, unexpected pops of color, and a large infinity mirror. Distinct custom-made furniture pieces, two black-and-brass ribbon fixtures, an amorphic organic round table, and a white atomic-era jewelry case, speak to the brand’s penchant for intentional, yet unexpected designs. Coming soon, the brand will open its second location on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Los Angeles.

KO Média – ELLE DECORATION CANADA

KO Média is excited to unveil the fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada featuring a new way of imagining your dream home by designer Nicholas Ancerl. Crestwood, described as “a dramatic home among the treetops” of Barrie, Ontario, has yet to be built. Instead, it has been brought to life with 23 photo-realistic renders. “The contemporary interiors will have a rustic touch and a neutral colour palette,” Ancerl explains. “We want the colours of nature, seen through the expansive windows, to dominate the interiors.” When asked about setting expectations too high for homeowners with such stunning renders, the designer assures: “Nothing can take away from the experience of actually stepping into a real space.”

This edition is imbued with a desire to create bright, airy living spaces that are both functional and serene. Included are Toronto-based architect Anya Moryoussef’s transformation of a single-car garage into a modern workspace inspired by traditional Italian studiolos; a prefabricated house reimagined by architect Alain Carle to capture the natural play of light and shade throughout the day; an architectural firm’s ingenious use of every nook and cranny in a tiny Vancouver home brimming with joie de vivre; and wood-and-glass containers fashioned by a Montreal couple to give their Old Port loft structure without sacrificing any natural light.

In the spirit of the season, Athena Calderone, author of Cook Beautiful, shares recipes that capture the tones, textures and tastes of fall and tips for creating the ultimate autumn table settings. Readers will also find a curated list of outdoor armchairs, loungers and swings from which to soak up the sun, and patio heaters in all shapes and sizes for the chilly months to come.

We caught up with Quebec native Philippe Malouin, creator of the Hanger chair, to find out how he continues to keep things simple after being listed among the world’s 100 top designers by Architectural Digest. Designer Montana Labelle offers advice for combining elegance and simplicity from her newly opened Lifestyle Studio in Toronto; and Quebecer Danielle Carignan, a pioneer in the personal organizer profession, shares tips to declutter your space and your life.

And for those seeking an escape, this issue has everything from top coffee makers for a meditative morning routine; to a seaside hospitality complex in Iran that blends seamlessly into the blazing red, yellow and orange rock formations of Hormuz Island.

The fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ today.

BriaR Releases Single and Video – Breathe Fire

Rising singer, lyricist, and performer BriaR has released her debut autobiographical single “Breathe Fire” along with its intergalactic, trance-inducing music video. The first single off of her debut EP Finding BriaR out this fall. Stream “Breathe Fire” here. Press here to watch the music video. The track details BriaR reminiscing about leaving a message on her lovers answering machine, revealing her deepest secrets and expressing her fear of being misunderstood. Finding BriaR is the debut EP from the multi-talented newcomer who grew up in a family of artists, musicians and entertainers, an ambitious musical hybrid that coins a brand-new genre – psychedelic soul – combining R&B, hip-hop and dance with art-rock, punk and hooky pop. BriaR’s breathy vocals are at once sensuous and intimate, creating a vibe that seduces our ears, while stimulating the body’s instincts to get up and move.

“The song came about during the pandemic. I was going through a tough time and I felt as though I wasn’t being heard. I created ‘Breathe Fire,’ an autobiographical record, explaining who I am and what I can bring to the table,” shares BriaR. “Although the record contains personal lyrics, I still wanted this to be a groovy track that makes you want to dance, hence the bass heavy record in the background.”

The daughter of legendary rapper Mack 10 (also known as part of Westside Connection alongside Ice Cube and WC) who also has a stepmom in T-Boz of TLC, BriaR can dream big because she comes from a family that has turned their own ambitions into reality. Growing up in the environment she did helped mold BriaR’s eclectic musical tastes, which incorporate not only the vintage old-school gangsta rap – but also New Wave (“Alanis Morrissette was a big influence in middle school”), grunge (Nirvana), punk (Green Day), pop (Gwen Stefani and No Doubt), rock (Fleetwood Mac), R&B (Michael and Janet Jackson, Aaliyah was “a big influence,” Beyonce, Shakira, TLC).

BriaR wrote the lyrics for the songs on the EP, recording them at home with her younger brother, rapper District 21, very much in the style of personal favorites like Billie Eilish and Finneas or, as she notes, fellow Calabasas residents Willow and Jaden Smith. “I have been obsessed with music since I was two years old,” she says of her upbringing around Topanga and Calabasas. “I remember Ice Cube coming to the house and me wanting to sing for him on the little karaoke machine my dad bought. For my brother and I, there was no other option. This is who we are.”

With Finding BriaR rolling out its five individual tracks this fall, BriaR is ready for the next step of her rise to stardom. “Recording this was like my therapy and it still is my therapy,” says BriaR. “The EP is about discovering the different sides of this individual. These songs helped me realize everything I want.”

JEREMY ZUCKER ANNOUNCES FALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Following the recent release of his new single “18,” today Platinum-Certified singer, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Zucker reveals he will return to touring this fall on his anxiously awaited North American headline tour. The tour kicks off on October 19th in Portland, OR and runs through the end of November, making stops at Los Angeles’ The Novo on October 27th, New York’s Terminal 5 on November 18th, and more—see the full list of tour dates below.

The tour will go on-sale via fan pre-sale Tuesday, July 13th at 10:00AM local time, Spotify pre-sale on Wednesday, July 14th at 10:00AM local time, and general on-sale on Friday, July 16th at 10:00AM local time. Visit Jeremy Zucker Music for more details.

Last month, Jeremy released his new summertime anthem “18,” which paves the way for his highly anticipated sophomore album, set for release later this year. Perfect for a montage in the middle of some long-lost, turn-of-the-century teen flick, Jeremy notably co-wrote and co-produced “18” with friends and fellow artists, Quinn XCII and ayokay, making natural strides with more confident and charismatic storytelling. He says, “‘18’ is written from the perspective of a high schooler dating an older girl, and the thrills and excitement of that relationship. I wrote the song with some friends while we spent a week in Newport, Rhode Island. It feels straight from the soundtrack of an early 2000s coming-of-age film.” Praised by Ones To Watch as “an exhilarating, nostalgic punch,” “18” sets the stage for more new music to come from Jeremy this summer.

Earlier this year, Jeremy teamed up once again with Chelsea Cutler for the brent ii EP. It served as a sequel to their 2019 breakthrough EP, brent, and Platinum-Certified single “you were good to me.” The EP received widespread critical and fan praise, as Jeremy and Chelsea performed singles, “this is how you fall in love” and “emily,” on TODAY and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #PlayAtHome series, respectively. “18” follows Jeremy’s critically acclaimed debut album, love is not dying, released last year.

The summer of Jeremy Zucker begins now.
