Six Things That Caught My Eye: WMCFW Day 2
Klaxon Howl’s Cropped Peacoats
I absolutely love watching menswear shows but can never stop myself from thinking ‘who would actually wear that?’. Designer Matt Robinson took ideas from the past and turned them into still wearable pieces. The cropped peacoat in particular really caught my eye (paired with a newspaper cap, naturally) because it reminds me of something Gene Kelly would have worn. Totally swoon worthy.

Laura Siegel’s Dramatic Make Up
The glorious fall shades that showed up intricately draped over Laura Siegel’s models didn’t stop at the neckline. I absolutely loved the deep berry shade on the models lips. Combined with warm golds on the eyelids, the lips popped right out of the face and had me jonesing for a quick stop into a makeup store to copy the entire look.

David Dixon’s Blazer Cape Hybrids
Dixon’s show was all about girl power from the opening video that remarked that the notion of women keeping silent is bullshit, to the thumping female anthems mixed in with quotes about feminism. The clothes too gave off serious power-suited-femme vibes. While it was hard to choose just one thing from this runway that caught my eye (feathered collars? Sequined sleeves?) the capes that resembled blazers from the back were absolutely incredible.

DUY’s Fur Sleeves
Thanks to winter’s last hurrah, anything with fur definitely made me yearn. One jacket in particular during DUY’s show actually had me extending my arms hoping to swathe myself in it: a powder blue leather jacket with a sumptuous fur collar and sleeves.

All of Line’s Outerwear
No one does outerwear like Line and no one makes me wish for cold weather EXCEPT the designers behind Line. From the textured leather jackets to the oh-so-cozy knits, my seatmate and I couldn’t help but whisper ‘want that, and that, and that’ after every model walked down the catwalk. As much as I loathe being cold, I would gladly face another six months of winter for the chance to rock a layered belted Line sweater. 


Sid Neigum Hair

As someone who can barely straighten their hair without causing serious injury to myself and others, Neigum’s skyscraping hair was all I could focus on!

Fashion-able: Wednesday and Thursday at the WMCFW tents

World Mastercard Fashion Week is quickly coming to an end, but what a week it’s been! From S&M-inspired menswear to bolo ties, every variety of talent was represented.

Bustle’s rodeo-inspired look.
Sexy fashion from Ezra Constantine.
Leather accessories and accents are not making their fashion exit any time soon, proven by Rudsak, Line, Ezra Constantine…the list goes on. 

Vawk’s awesome sparkle and leather combo.

Line brings it, again.

Splitting up [only in the fashion sense] was Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan – for the first time in recent memory, they showed on different nights. Joe Fresh showed their always-covetable pieces on Wednesday night, where we were brought to houndstooth heaven.

Pink Tartan showed a palette featuring military green, plum, grey and black.  We immediately swooned over the gowns and have our eye on that amazing tulle skirt. Investment piece – right? 

The perfect party skirt. 
Military chic at it’s finest.

Cara Cheung was a favourite, mixing tweed with hot flashes of fluorescent…
 …metallic snake print with chiffon…
…and jumping aboard the mullet train.

Ashtiani reminded us that while we’re looking ahead to fall wear, we are still very much in spring’s presence.

Incorporating pastel hues in geometric detailing proved that S/S and F/W worlds can collide.

While it’s hard to bid adieu to the tents tonight, we’re walking away with some fashion inspiration to tide us over until next season.
