Events~~Greta Constantine F/W 2012

Image

The Greta Constantine show has been taking place off site for the last several seasons and this season the show took place on the Friday before official World Mastercard Fashion Week began; actually they’ve been doing the show on the Friday before for a while now.

In any case I took two days off from the pre-fashion week shows and didn’t attend this show I just know that the collection was well received.  So no review from me I’m just posting the pics for us all to enjoy at the same time.

Toronto Fashion Week Day 2 ~~Soia & Kyo

Image

Entering the tents on day two had me in two states simultaneously, exhaustion and excitement.  I think that most bloggers and editors alike feel this way when it comes to any fashion week that they are covering, but to feel this way on Day 2, only leads me to believe I went a lil too hard on Day 1. So I dragged (really there was no dragging involved), myself into the tents for Day 2 all set to watch Soia & Kyo.  No real expectations but secretly I hoped it would be different from Mackage, another outer wear collection that I recently saw,  and it was.

Soia & Kyo managed to deliver an “every mans” collection.  What do I mean, well their collection could be seen on and worn by everyone. Literally everyone, there wasn’t a style that wasn’t represented in the collection.  In other words it was the perfect collection for those people who want their outer wear to be a cohesive part of their outfit. Not to have it stand out in any way but just to pull the whole thing together nicely. With the way that the collection was styled it showed that each piece was totally capable of doing just that.

We’ve seen a trend toward less bulk in outer wear over the last several seasons and Soia & Kyo’s F/W 2012 collection stayed on trend. The collection was composed primarily of tans, camels and browns, with hints of grey and some black with occasional pops of mustard. I was a fan of the mustard bomber jacket with knit cuffs and collar.

I would recommend this collection for anyone who is looking for a reliable well cut coat that you can take from day to night.

WorldMasterCardFashionWeek Fall/Winter 2014: Mikael D Collection

The only show I really wanted to see during Fashion week was the Mikael D show, alas I did not RSVP in time so I’ve had to rely on the images to see if the collection would be everything I expected it to be. Not surprisingly it was.

I’ve loved Mikael’s couture designs since the first time I missed his show at fashion week back when he was still designing under the Pavoni label and caught the on screen replay of the line. I wrote a post about it lamenting my decision to not RSVP. Poor research on my part.

Now I follow him on Facebook and Instagram where he’s been giving sneak peeks of his Fall/Winter 2014 collection. I went into his collection review with great optimism and Mikael delivered, it is a glamorous and decadent collection.

The collection was styled by JayStrut who literally struts the globe attending major fashion shows each season sharing his experience one blog, instagram and Facebook post at a time.

With Mikael’s couture gowns and Jay’s great eye The collection came together seamlessly.

The pictures are below.
