Montreal label Mackage put on a stellar Summer 2015 show last night at David Pecaut Square. They presented a collection full of ready-to-wear leather in relaxed and casual styles. The moto jackets, the leather track suits, fringe skirts and cutout tops were all very wearable and chic. The designers showed us how they have totally mastered the art of layering as well. The addition of a full-length, collared, sheer button-up to a few of the women’s looks created a new silhouette that made those outfits stand out among the rest. If you can judge a collection based in its wearabilty and power to pave the way for new trends, Mackage S/S15 was a big hit. xo
I had the pleasure of shooting professional dancer Tyler Gledhill for Northbound Leather a couple weeks back. Tyler is a 31-year-old Canadian Taurus with smouldering good looks and the flexibility of a contortionist. In addition, his good grace, his warm smile and the way he fills out his tights surely make him the full package (no pun intended). You can see Tyler in action from April 9th to 11th performing in “The Land of Fuck (a fable)” with the Dietrich Group at The Citadel in Regent Park. He will then be dancing in “The Man In Black / Looking for Elvis” with Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie also at The Citadel from May 21st to the 31st. I hope you enjoy these photos of him in the meantime. Does Game of Thrones start tonight?! xo

Happy Holidays from Northbound Leather! We are having a big sale in the days leading up to Christmas to ensure that everyone gets their stocking stuffed. Peruse our holiday-themed leather lingerie fashion editorial featuring Rob Manuel and Chanele for gift ideas.
Rob is a faithful customer of NBL and we adore him for it. Wrapped over his bulging muscles our pieces look good enough to eat. You can catch Rob in action every Friday night on stage at Remington’s. He told us he would love it if you came.
Chanele is a nineteen-year-old dream. She is a student of broadcast journalism at Ryerson who models on the side. Her Latitia Casta face and Rapunzel hair are enviable tokens of beauty. Chanele is single, open-minded and always up for a party. She certainly got us into the holiday spirit!
All items pictured are available at Northbound’s Yonge Street store. Drop by the shop and stock up for the season.
