Sid Neigum’s Fall 2012 collection saw him taking a much-needed breather from his perennial all-black course. And boy, are we glad he did. Mixing tan suede and cream knits among copious darks provided a fresh and optimistic look at fall. With only one female model among a slew of males (all clad in gargantuan Dr. Martens, no less), it was clear post-apocalyptic androgyny was the (somewhat tired) name of the game.
Neigum’s womenswear collection was selected as one of the finalists in the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s New Labels competition. Since the rules of the competition stipulate he can’t show his pieces until a winner is chosen, Neigum showed only two womenswear looks, and had us lusting for more (who says playing hard to get doesn’t work?).
Outerwear was the real standout in this collection. Piece after piece—be it fastened from textural leather or soft felt—was perfectly tailored. The clear runway winner? A buckled leather jacket worn with the model’s arms protruding from cape-like arm-slits underneath the sleeves.
