Le groupe de presse anglais Dazed Media révèle son futur magazine «papier» sous l’influence du digital et de l’intelligence artificielle.

Cest un pied de nez aux experts annonçant la fin de la beauté sur papier glacé. Au début de la semaine, le groupe de presse anglais Dazed Media (l’éditeur underground de Dazed & Confused, bible du style créé par Rankin dans les années 1990) a annoncé le lancement, courant 2019, de Dazed Beauty, un magazine papier dédié à la cosmétique, d’un nouveau genre. «Un manifeste sur la beauté du futur », nous précise le rédacteur en chef, Bunny Kinney. Conçu il y a un an pour Instagram et pour une plateforme Internet à destination des 15-35 ans, Dazed Beauty recense les innovations et les évolutions des comportements en matière de maquillage à l’ère des réseaux sociaux et des nouvelles technologies. Contribuant largement au succès de cet ovni digital, la direction artistique singulière menée par Isamaya Ffrench, l’une des maquilleuses les plus influentes du moment.

Why saving money on food is ‘definitely a challenge’ for millennials

[ad_1]

When Leslie Hacker began taking a closer look at her finances recently, she noticed she was spending about $1,000 on food each month.

« It seems like a lot, but when I did the math, that’s about 35 dollars a day, which doesn’t seem that crazy anymore to be honest, » she says.

Eating out, ordering in. Throw in a bagel here, a coffee there, and it all adds up.

« It’s definitely a challenge for people my age to save on food. »

At 28, Hacker is a millennial, defined as anyone born between 1980 and 2000. Saving money is a problem for her generation and experts say a big reason is how much millennials spend on eating out and ordering in.

Hacker works in social media marketing, which makes it even harder, she says, to save on food.

« All day I’m seeing these food pictures online and I’m like, ‘I want to try this and I want to try that!' » she tells CBC Toronto.

In the age of smartphones, access is easier than ever with popular food apps like UberEats and SkipTheDishes bringing a hot meal to your door in minutes.  But the convenience comes at a cost.

« There’s the delivery fee — $5.00 to $7.50, I find, is the usual delivery charge. And then you have to tip the drivers. »

Despite that, Hacker says she still uses the apps at least a few times a week because « as a single person, it’s harder to cook, I find. There’s less motivation. Maybe when I have a family, things will be different. »

Paycheque to paycheque

Jessica Moorhouse, a Toronto-based millennial money expert is noticing many of her well-paid millennial clients are living from paycheque to paycheque because they are overspending on food.

Some, like Hacker, are spending  $500 to $1,000 dollars a month.

« Most of the time when I’m talking to clients, I’m like, ‘So you’re spending $500 on eating out every month, are you happy with that?’ and most of the time they are like, ‘No! I wish I could use that money towards my emergency fund, paying off debt, or go on an amazing trip! »‘

She says the first thing she tells her clients is to track their spending for three months to identify patterns and problem areas, then they can « start taking steps to fix it. »

Moorhouse says there is no « right or wrong answer » when it comes to how much you should be spending on food, but « 10 to 20 per cent of your gross income… is a good starting point. »

A millennial herself, Moorhouse, 32, says she definitely notices her generation is spending more money on food than their parents, but she understands why.

« I think it’s because our lifestyles are very different. A lot of us are working full time and we have a side hustle, or we’re busy on the weekends, » she said. 

« We’re just go, go, go all the time. We’re in that crunch time in our lives whereas Gen Xers and baby boomers, the kids may be out of the house (and) they’ve got a little bit more time. »

No time to cook

« I feel like I’m always worried about not having time to cook, » 21-year-old Parnian Dolati said.

As a full-time student, Dolati says she’s often too busy for the kitchen. 

« I should be spending the money on making my own food but I don’t. »

Richard Banyard, 32, is a millennial who does cook, and says it saves him a lot of money.

He told CBC Toronto he spends about $20 to $30 on food each week, which adds up to between $80 and $120 a month.

« It’s the value of knowing how to make simple meals. I know people who don’t even know how to cook an egg. [They] don’t cook at all, so they spend most of their money on take-out. »

Finding a middle ground

For time-starved millennials who don’t have time to grocery shop or prepare food, Moorhouse suggests meal-kits as a good option to cut costs.

« That’s where those kind of delivery service meal kits come in… They do the hard lifting for you. They have all the ingredients and all you have to do is put it together. If you have 15 or 30 minutes, which everyone does, you’ll have time to make your own meal. »

And the cost?

« It’s way cheaper. For instance, with Chef’s Plate (an Etobicoke-based meal kit company), a kit starts at $8.99 (including delivery). It’s really good in terms of being a middle ground if you’re looking for something to help you with your budget, eat healthy, and help you with those time constraints. »

Hacker says she can’t see herself deleting food apps as Moorhouse suggests. But she is looking for ways to save money, such as cooking more often and dining in or ordering from less expensive restaurants. (John Grierson/ CBC News)

Hacker says she opts for the meal kit option once in a while.

 « I don’t use it every week, but I find it helps. »

She also says she is trying to cook something every other day in order to save money.

For those who really want to save though, Moorhouse suggests going cold turkey.

« Seriously, if you want to save money, delete those apps. »

Brioni se distingue en boudant les millennials

[ad_1]

Le tailleur romain se focalise sur le dressing classique à destination d’une clientèle dans la force de l’âge qui, elle, a les moyens de ses envies.

SDP

Une tendance lourde n’exclut pas son contraire. Surtout lorsque celle-ci atteint des sommets qui, généralement, s’avèrent les premiers signes d’un essoufflement. Aujourd’hui, le luxe n’a d’yeux que pour les millennials, ces jeunes adultes nés à partir de 1980 qui s’intéressent beaucoup à la mode via les réseaux sociaux et ont le «like» facile… sans forcément transformer leurs «clics» en acte d’achat. Bref, qu’importe si internet peut présenter quelques reflets d’un miroir aux alouettes, la majorité des grandes marques est actuellement éblouie par la jeunesse et rivalise de collections infusées de streetwear. Le temps d’une saison, Brionis’est inscrit dans ce courant.

SDP

Mais, cet automne-hiver, le tailleur romain qui habille hommes d’Etat et grands dirigeants depuis des décennies, revient déjà sur terre avec une nouvelle équipe aux manettes du style. «On ne peut pas débarquer dans une maison et faire table rase du passé. Surtout lorsqu’il s’agit d’une marque patrimoniale, aux traditions et aux ateliers tailleur forts, à la clientèle fidèle et précise. J’éprouve un respect immense pour les messieurs qui s’habillent de façon classique. Mon objectif est de faire évoluer leur dressing et de le rendre actuel», expliquait, en janvier dernier, Nina-Maria Nitsche, lors de la présentation d’un premier opus sous sa direction.

Depuis, cette ancienne collaboratrice de Martin Margiela qui, comme lui, préférait mettre en avant ses créations plutôt que sa personne, a quitté les studios du sarto italien. Mais son orientation stylistique pleine de bon sens reste en vigueur. Aux jeunes de 20 ans et des poussières, Brioni préfère leurs aînés affichant le double de printemps et même plus. La collection, pensée comme une garde-robe, aligne les essentiels du dressing masculin, modernisés au niveau des proportions et améliorés au niveau des matières. Par exemple: un caban façonné dans un feutre de cachemire plutôt que de laine, une doudoune en agneau capitonné et non en nylon matelassé. Evidemment, les prix vont de pair. Mais n’est-ce pas avec l’âge que l’on apprend à apprécier les choses rares, la qualité et, par extension, la vraie valeur de la belle ouvrage?

94 per cent of GTA millennials worry young people won’t be able to afford a home, poll says

[ad_1]

More than nine in ten millennials are concerned people their age won’t be able to afford to buy a home in the GTA, according to a new poll.

Eighty-five per cent of GTA residents of all ages said they are concerned about young people’s ability to buy a home, according to an Ipsos poll released Tuesday on behalf of the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) and the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB). That number rises to 94 per cent for millennials aged 18-34.

The poll also finds widespread concern that GTA children will be unable afford to buy in the their community. Just one in three residents said the children they know will grow up to be able to afford local housing.

“According to a recent Centre for Urban Research and Land Development study, there are about 730,000 millennials living in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) who may be planning to move on from living in their parents’ homes and from sharing a dwelling with roommates in the next ten years, potentially creating 500,000 new households,” said Dave Wilkes, BILD president and CEO, in a press release.

Interestingly, although millennials are concerned about the ability to own a home, they are also the most optimistic group regarding housing supply, with 41 per cent of them believing that the GTA is well prepared to provide housing for the number of new residents that settle here every year. That is substantially higher than those age 35 to 54 (31 per cent) and those over 55 (27 per cent).

When picking a new home, 60 per cent of GTA residents say they value a neighbourhood that is walkable and bikeable, in addition to being within proximity to shopping, entertainment and government services.

This is closely followed by those who prefer access to convenient transit (56 per cent) and proximity to work and school (54 per cent).

“The best public policy is proactive, not reactive. We hope these poll results demonstrate that the time for municipal decision-makers to start thinking about housing choice and supply for all GTA residents who want to own a home is now,” said TREB president Garry Bhaura.

“In the next decade, we are likely to be part of a significant housing shift in our region as a large wave of millennials start looking for a place to live of their own,” added Wilkes.
