Mikhael Kale’s Fall 2014 show opened World MasterCard Fashion Week last night in Toronto, marking the designer’s first time showing on the official fashion week schedule. Film of a twisting nude female torso began the show, foreshadowing the nearly nude sheer organza to be featured later on in the designer’s latest edgy yet feminine collection.

Beginning with a series of stud-embellished cashmere and tweed pieces, the show moved into vibrant territory with shades of pink and green continuing throughout. Kale was inspired by dinner napkins, which he translated by folding organza and incorporating arty smudges to mimic stains. Creating the prints through a series of fabric manipulations, Kale’s incorporation of painterly prints echoes the same trend seen on runways internationally for both spring and fall.

In ode to the art-inspired clothes that took to his art-inspired Spring 2013 collection earlier this week, Mikhael Kale’s latest show was granted special access to the usually un-bookable Corkin Gallery in Toronto’s East end Distillery District. The exclusive setting is also the current home to the Nigel Scott’s “Conversations with Blue” exhibit that inspired the collection. Not the first art-meet-cute for the two, Mikhael Kale and Nigel Scott collaborated on a special artistic project featured in our November issue.

Toronto native Tanya Taylor returned home from current home base in New York to show her sophomore collection as the first to be presented in this year’s expat designer portfolio at The ShOws. And it couldn’t have been at a better time. Since starting her career designing for Elizabeth and James after degrees from McGill University and Parsons New School for Design, Taylor’s star has been rising, and since launching her first solo collection last season, we daresay it’s surging to the top.

Check out the photos from Mendocino’s 25th anniversary party! »

Mendocino’s 25th anniversary was marked last week with a celebration at the store’s Yonge Street location. The evening began with a trend presentation from the store’s head buyer, Christina Faucher. Key trends for fall and the upcoming holiday season—such as leather, oxblood and prints—were presented on models who mingled with partygoers throughout the night. Guests sipped custom cocktails tailored to the season’s tops trends (think: “Better than Bordeaux” and “Prints Charming”) while perusing merchandise. That is, unless their nails were wet: In honour of Mendocino’s silver anniversary, Tips Nail Bar joined the celebration to do metallic Essie manicures on guests. There were also many silver sweets to be had—while waiting for manicure partygoers filled takeout containers with silver and white sweets from a fully stocked candy table. Happy silver anniversary, indeed!

London Fashion Week Spring 2013: 5 trends already staking their claim on next season

While the international collections are only half way through there is no doubt that some Spring 2013 trends have been set. London Fashion Week elaborated on some of the trends that we first spotted in New York making spring style seem clearer than ever. Spring 2013 promises bold fashion ready for risk takers. Those who thought the crop top was a phase seem to have been proven wrong. Look for bare bellies and plenty of skin throughout the collections—start those crunches now.

Skin is definitely in, as leather frequents the catwalks for Spring 2013. At Mulberry, leather-on-leather takes the typically non-summer fabric for a ride dropping it right in the middle of its sugary sweet sixties-inspired collection. Meanwhile, defined digital prints continue to develop for Spring 2013 in the hands of their mistress, Mary Katrantzou: vivid images take us on a trip with international banknotes and postage stamps.

Joeffer Caoc combined texture and lustre to create modern, feminine silhouettes in his Fall 2012 collection presented last Friday during Toronto Fashion Week. Leather panels detailed dresses giving the Joeffer girl an edge. The collection was on trend with its frequent use of the peplum, and the combination of materials, especially the mixed tweeds and metallics, made the collection appear very versatile. During their final walk, models paraded down the runway to The Sound of Music’s “My Favourite Things,” a fitting song choice for a collection that was a fashion week favourite.
