The countdown is officially on with only a week to go until the start of Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2014. I’m getting the feeling that this is going to be one of the biggest and best yet, which is only bolstered by news of all the amazing clothing we can expect to see in the coming season. That being said, if anyone is going to have their best Fashion Week ever, you can almost be certain it will be Montreal-based brand Soia & Kyo, currently celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Debuting the Fall 2014 collection on Thursday, March 20 at 8:00 p.m., Soia & Kyo will continue to move its brand forward through the beauty of contrast, the main inspiration and defining theme behind the new lineup entitled Quiet Storm.
“Our newest collection shows the progression of the Soia & Kyo aesthetic, as we remain dedicated to creating beautiful styles for our customer,” says Creative Director Ilan Elfassy. “For Fall/Winter 2014, we adopted a new approach in order to achieve oversized silhouettes, cocoon shapes and dropped shoulders that serve both form and function.”
The collection combines sharp men’s tailoring with a strong feminine undertone to create modern, effortless outerwear, while the juxtaposition of grainy wools with soft leathers amplifies the disparities featured throughout. Brushed down coats and tweed wool jackets offer a casual yet polished alternative to mass market outerwear, while I love the cool palette of ivory, nude, tan and soft gray, which provides a refreshing alternative to the typical Canadian winter uniform of all-black.
It goes without saying that this Fall 2014 show isn’t one to miss as the company celebrates 10 years of sublime styling, but should we come bearing gifts of tin, aluminium or diamond? What’s the traditional material for marking a truly fashionable decade?
