Todd Lynn closed out “the ShOws” at the Ritz-Carlton on Friday with the busiest crowd we’d seen that week. Rumours swirled about Juliette Lewis (who sported his designs during TIFF) attending (we couldn’t spot her), but others, like Alexandra Weston, Tommy Ton and Jeremy Laing, were still seen in the front row. Lynn served up a collection with a blue and grey colour palette: satiny dresses, revealing knit sweaters (on men and women) and microsuede coats. We liked the metallic rods (which look like safety pins from afar) affixed to cropped jackets and low-cut blazers, but the enormous top paired with short pants was a look best left to the Lady Gagas of the world (let your freak flag fly). After the runway show, guests gathered to discuss their Friday evening plans, and the “HER” party at La Perla thrown by Frank Griggs (Laing’s husband and creator of the much lauded fashioncalendar.ca) seemed to be the place to be—designers Calla Haynes and Thomas Tait were spotted outside smoking and discussing their inevitable stopovers in New York City before returning to London, and we noticed an indoor scarf–wearing Jean-Pierre Braganza inside discoing the night away. It is hard to believe that Toronto Fashion Week hasn’t even started yet.
