When your Canadian go-to guide for style, beauty, health and all things lifestyle comes out with a book, what’s the first thing you do? Fan-girl, of course! The second thing to do, naturally, is to interview the man behind The Coveteur.
Enter Jake Rosenberg, co-founder and creative director for the Canadian made lifestyle publication The Coveteur. Between meeting with celebrities and peeking into their lives (then sharing it with us!) and travelling to the hottest events across the globe (we caught up with him on his way back from Paris Fashion Week!), he is busy keeping us up to date with what really interests us young professionals. On top of that, he is a flourishing photographer, making us swoon over his intimate shots of some of our favourite faces. A definite eye for the perfect picture, his beautiful Instagram feed allows his fans a behind the scenes look at his insider portraiture. With a talent as grand as his, it’s no surprise that The Coveteur is always a flawlessly beautiful publication.
