loulou’s leading lady talks taste

guest blog: vancouver popstar, arpen t., shares her exclusive interview with julia cyboran, editor-in-chief of loulou magazine

last week at the loulou shop till you drop event in vancouver, we had a chance to catch up with julia cyboran, editor-in-chief of loulou magazine. check out what julia had to say about style and snacking…

popchips: what are the top 5 style trends to watch out for fall?

julia cybroran (jc) : my absolute top 5 choices are:

  1. embellishment trend. items with embellishments such as studs/diamonds can be great additions to your everyday office look! embellishments can spice up any simple outfit often found on collars, a great substitute for accessories!
  2. leather: from belts to jackets and shirts, any sort of leather accent is a hot trend!
  3. equestrian: this country-side look is in for the fall. whether its boots, tights or collared blouses, the country-side inspired look is romantic and polished.
  4. black & white:  these staple colors combined are super sleek are in for the season!
  5. knitwear: if there if one thing you should invest in, it should be a knit scarf! not only are they uber stylish, but for us gals up in canada, this is the perfect way to stay warm while staying stylish!

popchips: describe your personal style in 3 words.

jc:  i’d say trendy, classic, and edgy!

popchips: who is your favorite canadian fashion designer?

jc: i’m originally from montreal and i love one of my hometown designers by the name of valerie dumaine.

popchips: which popchips flavor are you currently loving?

jc: i first discovered popchips at new york fashion week a few years ago. all of the models were snacking on them. i’ve always been a fan of the original popchips!
