- Toronto Fashion Week //Spring 2013
Sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon have once again this season proved why together they are some of my favourite Canadian designers. The duo presented their spring 2013 collection the week prior to WMCFW at David Pecaut Square in Toronto and brought us a host of very California culture inspired looks at Rogue Fashion Week. Models strutted down the 100 year old floors that made up the runway in 6 inch heels managing to avoid tripping and only slipping a few times.
The girls being known for their androgynous looks, interesting use of hardware and avant-garde style showed us a delicate side of themselves while still staying true to their roots. Leather, cotton and silk fabrics came in light floral, herringbone, snakeskin, and Batik patterns. I loved the airy fabrics and light, water coloured hues. Some of the stand out pieces for me were the functional leather shorts, light springtime trench coats and long streamlined tuxedo pants. At 22 and 24 years old respectively they are well on their way to become Toronto Fashion Week heavy hitters.

Every season I always look forward to design duo Chloé and Parris Gordon designs for their brand Chloé come Parris. Everything always feels airy and light but with a hard edge which always makes for an interesting collection.
This season saw a dark colour palette of black and charcoal with pops of camel and dreamy light watercolour prints. Most skirts were mid length and pleated and were styled with contrasting heavy leather and suede masculine motorcycle jackets. Oversized knits were heavily featured and made an excellent fall basic. Their trademark use of hardware and studded embelishments were in abundance and trickled down shoulders and sleeves. Evening dresses were completed with either the previously noted motorcycle jacket or a simple trench. Two things that caught my eye were the caged cuffs that were utterly covetable and the cigarette pants had fun slits up the front which will be perfect for showing off statement shoes. Overall Chloé come Parris was a collection full of muted basics that I am sure will have great commercial success.
