Ethereal white and cream marks Paul Hardy's #lgfw show
A Paul Hardy show is always a bit of a religious experience (his most memorable presentation had editors filing into the pews at the Church of the Redeemer at Avenue and Bloor) and god is in his details.
Those finishing touches (in the case of Spring 2010, there were white washed vintage shoes in lieu of the usual Town fare and models sporting eyebrow pencil ‘staches) hint that Hardy is trying to shift the way we look at fashion ever so slightly.
The clothes were all ethereal white and cream, finding their interest in coconut and feathered textures, knotted construction and a slouchy, layered silhouette. It was the first show to kick so-far-uninspired fashion week brains into gear and amen for that.
