cold couture



Much love for this capture of a tender, Canadian moment shared between Chefs Ryan Lachaine and Mandel Hitzer last night on the ice. Is Ryan wearing The Warden’s chapeau? These two will be back in action (posing and cooking) tonight for the second last evening of RAW:almond 2014.

We see you, Winnipeg. And we like what we see. Each evening (and weekend morning) at RAW:almond we nod in appreciation of your sartorial splendour. Your apt and calculated layering, luxe collection of vintage furs, and array of hats (OH, the hats!) speak for themselves: We’ve got a happening Northern aesthetic. A look too cool too keep under wraps. So, in the collaborative spirit of our #riverpopup we invite you to share your #ColdCouture selfies!

Simply send snaps of you and your crew at RAW:almond to and I’ll compile and post them. Include your name and Twitter handle if you like. We’ll all be internet famous!
