Toronto Fashion Week: Beaufille cements its cool-girl cred with a grommet-heavy spring 2014 show
Toronto Fashion Week runs from October 21-26, in a large—and stylishly appointed—tent at David Pecaut Square. We’re posting full galleries from the buzziest runways. Here’s what trendsetters will be wearing in spring 2014.
Beaufille is fresh off a name change—the label used to be named Chloé Comme Parris, after sisters and designers Chloé and Parris Gordon.
The claws were out last night as fans even vied for second row seats. Purses held people’s places while their owners prowled the room in search of the best possible vantage point to be seen (and, secondarily, to see). On the runway, dudes with guitars and drums played the show soundtrack.
The sisters’ typically androgynous style went more femme this season—spaghetti straps and one shoulder dresses were everywhere. A tougher edge was still evident, though, in the metal hardware holding together everything from long, flowing skirts to high-waisted shorts. Milky-hued jackets had a pleasingly soft, pebbled texture, and we loved the effortless, summery feel of a pair of sleeveless rompers.
A smoking jacket-cum-robe in a gorgeous, moody fabric that looked pure black from a distance, but actually had a textured, midnight blue pattern.
