The hot new ‘mix and match’ trend isn’t the easiest to pull off. It’s one of those trends you either love or hate, there’s really no in-between. Yesterday, during the second day of Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, there were three designers that took this exciting yet risky challenge and captured this trend for their Fall/Winter 2015 collections.
After her EMDA debut at TOM* last season, Rank by Rani Kim surpassed herself by bringing a collection full of cocoon over-sized silhouettes and mixing and matching fabrics. She experimented with shapes, layers and texture taking her collection to a whole new level.
Inspired by a ‘cyclist’ theme, Venturist Commuter showcased a collection with a huge variety of hand-painted details on its pieces. It became almost a patchwork game by mixing and matching out of the box prints together such as combining green leopard printed cuffs with two tone grey hoodies.
The most dramatic and eccentric collection was showcased by Worth by David C. Wigley. Metallic pieces with velvet shorts or a moto-jacket paired with a traditional Scottish tartan skirt proved David has an extraordinary imagination and has the ability to tell a unique fairytale through his designs.
