Our five favourite finds for spring
There’s still one more round of fashion week shows to watch this evening but I’m already itching to boil down the clothing from the catwalk’s first four days into a snappy list of trends. Here’s what our designer class of Spring 2010 says you should be wearing next season:
From the cheap and cheerful Sears catwalk with its standout feather print cami (pictured above) to the painterly dress print at Katrina Tuttle and the bounty of luxe black and white striping at Pink Tartan, designers presented some pretty shady options this season.
The rosette and cotton lace coats at Joe Fresh (pictured) and Paul Hardy’s layers of coconut and feather-textured fabrics added interest to spring’s parade of white, ivory and cream cloth.
The front row was hot for Joe Fresh boss Joe Mimran’s blackwatch plaid pants (from Fall 2008 if my catwalk memory serves me right?) while he schmoozed down the front row before the Pink Tartan show. Bustle kept the idea alive with a rainbow of Madras trousers (pictured) while both Joe and Barbie by David Dixon downsized the trend with gingham slacks.
Spring’s favourite yellow hue was light in tone and weight at Aime where wrap knit tunics had an easy vibe. David Dixon’s main collection opened with a dress and blouse covered with hundreds of silk circles in a pale banana popsicle hue.
The spring leather look appeared first at Greta Constantine last week and continued during fashion week-proper with woven dresses at NADA and men’s walking shorts at Rudsak. The ultimate example though was this tank and gym shorts set at Travis Taddeo.
