Runway Trend Report: moto jackets at Toronto Fashion Week
The moto jacket has been a staple for decades, partly because of its appealing toughness, and partly because it goes with absolutely everything. The proof: designers at Toronto Fashion Week paired the jackets with everything from minidresses (Chloé Comme Parris) and pencil skirts (Tanya Taylor) to silk tunics (Jeremy Laing) and thick sweaters (Line Knitwear) on the fall 2013 runways. Our favourite riffs include a boiled wool-and-leather version by outerwear specialists Mackage (far right), and Taylor’s pink metallic raffia jacket (second from right). Several of Rudsak’s gold leather jackets were also stand-outs (second from left), though it’s Joe Fresh’s white studded version (far left) that we’re expecting to see most frequently on the streets come fall.
