Cher Bai, Sadiq Adeshina and Gabriella Lacasse share their favourite pieces they’ll be wearing all season long.
Getting dressed up and having a glass of wine for no special occasion can be the ultimate indulgence these days. With all of us spending more time than ever at home, we’ve got the perfect excuse to dig into our closets and revisit some of our fave fashion-forward pieces — the ones we know will give our mood a boost. Here, three influencers share how they’ll be cocooning in style this season, inspired by the bold flavour-forward notes of Meiomi Pinot Noir.
Staying in can be just as exciting as going out, especially when it involves a fancy outfit and a bottle of Meiomi — just ask Cher Bai. These days, the Toronto-based entrepreneur and influencer (and former FASHION cover star) has been doing date nights at home with her husband. “ It’s a great reason to dress up,” she says — even if it’s for an activity as chill as snuggling on their puffy-as-a-cloud white Roche Bobois sofa and watching a movie. Bai also points out that sometimes all it takes is a fun outfit (like a feather-trimmed pyjama set by Sleeper) or a luxe pair of heels (René Caovilla, anyone?) to instantly brighten her mood. “You can still look chic even when you’re at home!”
After a long day at physically distanced photo shoots, Toronto-based model and influencer Sadiq Adeshina can most likely be found kicking back and unwinding at home with a glass of Meiomi Pinot Noir. Comfort is key for Adeshina, which means that most nights, his off-duty uniform includes Adidas by Raf Simons sneakers and a cozy knit sweater, like a plush lilac pullover by Danish brand Samsøe Samsøe. But on evenings that call for something a little more special, he’ll throw on an oversized leather jacket with bold shoulders — a beloved item in his wardrobe. “I’m obsessed with leather pieces that have interesting silhouettes,” he says. “This jacket definitely lifts my spirits.”
There’s no need to go shopping for a new outfit when you have a wardrobe filled with vintage designer pieces and special finds. Such is the case with Gabrielle Lacasse, a Montreal-based photographer and influencer whose fashion sense, like a glass of Meiomi Pinot Noir, is full of character. To help spark some joy during the colder months indoors, Lacasse will be reaching for some of her favourite items, like a green Acne Studios blazer, jewellery that belonged to her late grandmother and a pair of OTT vintage Gucci sandals adorned with black feathers. “They were definitely an extravagant purchase,” she says.
