Holt Renfrew has been taking a shine to fashion bloggers over the recent years, throwing parties, public meet and greets and even toasting a few by showcasing them in their window displays. Recently, Holt Renfrew threw a party to celebrate the launch of the new Holt’s blog ‘Holts Muse ,which was hosted by ‘The Man Repeller’ blogger Leandra Medine, at their Bloor St. location.
The New York fashion blogger spent the day at Holt Renfrew meeting with fans and also picking out her favourite style trends, that were on display with a party highlighting some of the blogger’s quirky style picks. Each of her favourite must-have’s were displayed within the ‘HOLT’ lettering used for the company’s LGFW show and included coloured pants, bracelets galore and, every fashion magazine editors favourite: animal print. The Man ‘Repeller may be the cute moniker of her blog, but she was repelling no one at the party, woman or man. Guests were enthralled to meet with her, whether it was to pick her brain on her fashion views or to snap a picture that will inevitably find its way to a Facebook profile.
So what exactly is a man repeller? According to her blog, man repelling is about outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Even though many guests took this into consdieration while dressing, they weren’t repelling anyone that night. Dressed in sky high heels, arms full of accessories and bold colours and prints, the ladies were trying to get noticed rather then repelling.
