It is Day 3 of Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week and already we are noticing a trend. Gone are the in-your-face prints and neon brights from last year, they have been swapped out for minimalist whites.
We first spotted the trend at Beaufille, a new contemporary line from sisters Chloe and Parris Gordon. The duo finds inspiration in art and history and turns those ideas into something modern and contemporary. Their top-to-bottom white looks are perfect for the tough city girl.
The theme continued at Pink Tartan where Kimberly Newport-Mimran showed an elegant and well-crafted collection, loosely inspired by the 60s. Whereas Beaufille’s white was more of a creamy tone, Pink Tartans was crisp and bright. The pop-art inspired textured dots and tone-on-tone prints were a hit.
When creating his Spring/Summer 2014 collection, David Dixon remembered when he would design clothes for his Barbies as a child. He would dress them in tissue, doilies, foil or whatever they had floating around at home. He turned the tissue into chiffon, the doilies into cut lace and the foil into glittering fabrics that comprised his all white and black collection.
Travis Taddeo’s models were the epitome of “cool” in all white street-chic looks. He is a master at mixing luxury and urban style. By using a monochromatic scheme, he was able to make sportswear look incredibly stylish.
It was no surprise when we saw the trend continue at JNBY, the successful womenswear brand from China. Li Lin drew inspiration from art and architecture in her ultra-modern Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
We’re expecting more of this trend as Day 3 kicks off today with runways from Klaxon Howl, Matthew Gallager, Mackage and Joe Fresh.
