Okay, so I guess there are other stylish people from Toronto, aside from the gang of stereotypical Canadians and myself. At NYFW in February, fur was a must-have, yet it’s been carried in a plethora of variations into the early days of spring in Toronto,
as well all know TO isn’t far from the North Pole. Hence, as Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2013 wraps-up, it’s imperative to covet the trendsetters rocking the city’s streets. Apart from splurging in Yorkville, especially at Mendocino and Holt Renfrew on my native land visits, I’ve never fit-in into the Toronto sartorial scene, per se. But that’s besides the point, upon browsing coverage of Canadians invading the streets at Fashion Week, I’m elated to explore an abundance of visually compelling motifs. From fluorescent vivid color jackets and floral prints– to light layers and opulent accessories, Toronto was overloaded with many must-haves. I’ve seemingly established an intrinsic bias toward printed garments because they exude the strength to render an array of glamorous looks. Yet, I’m particularly infatuated by the hoards of graphics, bold contrast and various ways of layering, all of which channel an air of eclectic luxury, especially when clashed with contemporary-inspired compositions like pattern and texture blocks!
