Caitlin Power shows she understands trends at Toronto Fashion Week fall/winter 2012
The socialite types may not have been able to make it to Caitlin Power’s studio show—too busy counting diamonds, we presume—but the fashion editors, like Flare’s Jen Campbell and Mosha Lundström-Halbert, the Toronto Star’s Derrick Chetty, Now’s Andrew Sardone and the Globe and Mail’s Tiyana Grulovic, were treated to one of the stronger collections we’ve seen this week. A mix of men’s and women’s clothing, Power’s line was both modern and wearable. Our favourites were a charcoal-grey men’s coat with black accents and zippers at the sleeve, sheer tops with strategic panels and on-trend blouses buttoned all the way to the neck (especially the green prints for both guys and gals). The only fault we found was with a mini-dress with a sweetheart neckline and a sheer overlay. We couldn’t help but think it would benefit from a Jamie-Lee-Curtis-in-True-Lies-style alteration. Power’s knowledge of trends and tailoring make her one to watch in the upcoming seasons.
