Plaid and animal prints might have dominated the fall 2013 runways in New York, Milan and Paris, but so far, Toronto Fashion Week has resembled a geometry class. Jean-Pierre Braganza’s circles and triangles (far left) looked like the result of a long afternoon with a compass and ruler, while the presentations from Comrags (second left) and Pink Tartan (far right) both relied heavily on hexagon prints. Meanwhile, a top by Jeremy Laing (second from right) had us looking up the definition of a rhombus. The looks range from neo-goth to ’60s retro, but they all have one thing in common: no loud colours, which would likely take this bold look a little far.
