Trish Spencer and Matty Matheson have been together since they were teenagers. Much has changed—he’s now a celeb chef and Viceland personality; she’s the co-owner of the bridal boutique LoversLand; they got hitched and had a kid, Macarthur—but at heart, they’re still a pair of Port Colborne Catholic-school kids who yearned for days out of uniform to express their personalities. Though Spencer has a background in fashion, Matheson’s inspirations are more eclectic—’80s-era wrestlers, New York hardcore bands and Eddie Murphy in Trading Places. “He’s kind of a brand whore,” says Spencer. “I couldn’t spend $500 on a shirt, but he would.” They’re simpatico when it comes to baby Mac’s style. “I love putting him in stuff that makes people go crazy,” Spencer says. “He was wearing a onesie with multicoloured birds recently,” Matheson adds, “and everyone thought he was a girl. I don’t care. He can wear pink onesies. He’s a baby!”
