World Mastercard Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013~Day 3~Matis 70’s Siren

What can I say about this collection? It’s on fire for one. For two its bold, sexy and confident, all the things I love in a collection.  Matis collection showed on the 3rd day of Fashion Week, and as I still couldn’t make it to the tents I never saw the show in person.  I again had to rely on the pictures and can I tell you I am blown away, I love this collection.  Please tell me the Silver Sequin pant suit is not EVERYTHING! The prints, and colours used were unexpected and choosing to construct them into maxi dresses and jumpsuits, was just brilliant.  This collection gave you everything all wardrobe options were covered, from day to evening you could do no wrong.

World Mastercard Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013~Day 1~Pink Tartan

Kim Newport-Mimram is my go to designer for Fashion week.  I wouldn’t say I get overly excited to see her collection every season but that’s just because I feel like for me she is the Michael Jordan of Fashion Week. She always executes amazingly well.  Her collections are always cohesive, they are always well styled, they are always on trend, and they are above all else wearable.  I rarely if ever have anything negative or critical to say about her collections and to be perfectly honest when I’m having my strutting down Bay street day dreams I’m wearing her Green peplum jumpsuit from Fall/Winter 2012.  It’s usually summer in my day dreams…But she does not disappoint….

Laura Siegel Spring/Summer 2013~The Shows Toronto~Austrailan Outback Boho hippie

Hello hello I am back from my hiatus don’t read anything into the timing. Ha! What better way is there for me to jump back into writing than by reviewing the shows for Toronto Fashion week.  Like most major cities around the world that host a national and in some cases international Fashion week there are shows that take place surrounding and during the official Fashion Week; Toronto is no exception.  In Toronto the Fashion fun starts this week and this is my first review for the season. Yay! I am familiar with Laura Siegel but have never reviewed any of her collections.  So here we go….

Laura Siegel’s Spring/Summer collection takes me to the Australian outback where cacti and lizards roam.  This collection is for the girl with a bohemian style that likes to mix the ruggedness that is suede with the lightness of linen. The accessories were completely complimentary in that they completely finished each look.  Wide-brimmed hats were perfectly paired and felt appropriate for this sun-loving collection. Along with long necklaces and layered scarves perfect for keeping sand out of the eyes. Her colour palette was muted with sea-foam greens, tans, taupes, and pale blues.  Perfect for blending into the landscape. This whole collection could comfortably be packed for a weekend in the Outback.  Check out the photos below.
