6 Toronto Brands We’re Absolutely Loving On Instagram Right Now
While scrolling through Instagram is a great way to stay up-to-date with what your friends are eating for lunch, or what your favourite celebs are up to — we’re obviously referring to North West, sometimes it truly is the best way to discover new brands. Because let’s face it, we’re all guilty of aimlessly scrolling until we land on an account that we can gush to our friends about. But no matter how much time you actually spend on the app, sometimes it’s hard to track down these brands for yourself — that’s where we come in.
From absolutely NAILING their feed aesthetic and inspiring their customers to offering products unlike their competitors, to slaying industry trends, Instagram is filled with brands, both well loved and under-the-radar, that are really making a name for themselves on the beloved app. Plus, many of these brands are from Toronto
Read on to learn about the 6 Toronto brands that we currently can’t get enough of.
Co-founded by Toronto-based style icon Allegra Shaw, Uncle Studios will quickly become your go-to shop for everything from sexy slip dresses, to the ‘perfect’ crew neck. We definitely recommend not waiting to buy, as you won’t want to miss out on your chance to purchase everything in your cart.
Launched in 2018 by Toronto-based BFFs, Monica Abramov and Anastassia Boguslavskaya, it didn’t take long for Lunata Beauty to quickly blow up on Instagram and take over the beauty industry. With the intention to free women from cords, Lunata first released its game-changing cordless, rechargeable touch-up iron/styler. The girls will soon be releasing the world’s first-ever 3-in-1 cordless, rechargeable, and convertible curling iron/wand.
Best friends Hyla Nayeri and Adrien Bettio launched 437 with the sole purpose of allowing women to feel their absolute best when wearing a bikini — even after indulging in the finer things in life like pizza and pasta. The duo’s luxe collection is constructed with an incredibly soft and stretchy blend of polyester and spandex, which creates a flattering, curve-hugging fit regardless of your shape or size. But what we really love about this company is how empowering it is to women, not to mention its suits will leave you feeling confident and sexy, which is something not all swimsuit brands can do. Plus, now you can try the pieces on before purchasing them at 437’s new Toronto loft located at 263 Adelaide St West, Unit 407.
From lip scrubs and liquified lipsticks, to lip crayons and pencils, Toronto-based Bite Beauty has your back (and lips) for all your beauty needs. Since hitting the shelves at Sephora back in 2011, Bite Beauty has ruled the lip colour category ever-since and has quickly become a cult-favourite of beauty-influencers, celebs, and everyone in between. And it’s easy to know why — every product is made with natural, food-grade ingredients, and is cruelty-free, and never tested on animals. Plus, you can head to Bite’s lip lab on Queen Street where you can create your perfect custom lipstick complete with flavour and finish.
Founded by David Kollar in 2011, this Toronto-based men’s streetwear brand needs to be on every guy’s radar. Kollar makes style magic through distressed and edgy bottoms, signature tees, resort shirts, luxe jackets, and footwear, These items will instantly transform any guy’s wardrobe into more of a work of art rather than just a collection of standard pieces. It’s no wonder why this brand is loved and worn by everyone from Canadian R&B duo DVSN, rappers Roy Woods, Fabolous, Young Thug, Waka Flocka, Toronto Raptor Normal Powell, singer Shawn Mendes, and many more.
Since launching in 2015, Toronto-based Mejuri, which was founded by Noura Sakkijha and her hubby Maj Masad, has changed the way women buy luxury jewellery. Mejuri works with top jewellers, who commit to exceptional craftsmanship and ethical practices, which allows them to produce quality jewellery essentials. The brands selection includes everyday diamonds, lockets, engagement rings, and bracelets. If you’re anything like us, you’ll want to buy up everything in sight.
