A hot ticket for every WMCFW: Pink Tartan. Kimberley Newport-Mimran has built a brand synonymous with luxury and sophistication, and her Fall Winter 2015 collection was no exception. Three main themes emerged as the models traipsed around the white poufs on the runway (Were they clouds? Were they snowbanks?): Volume, Practicality, and Fur.
Volume – it was employed cleverly in every single look, whether it was an oversized (yet flattering) pea coat, exaggerated bows upon shoulders, or cropped wide leg trousers. Newport-Mimran found clever ways to incorporate just the right amount of volume to lend a fashion-forward air, without being unwearable. Special shout-out to the oversized vests that appeared to be made of paper? Want.
Practicality – it is COLD in Canada! And Newport-Mimran addressed this issue head-on with a FW15 collection filled with coats, knits, toques (beanies for our neighbours down south) and, yes, fur. Her girl is definitely not shying away from any feels-like-minus-WHAT situations.
Fur – As mentioned above, it is practical… maybe not PETA approved, but no one is cold in fur. Newport-Mimran kept her fur-laden looks contemporary with the styling – a touch of fur on jacket cuffs, stoles worn as sashes, jackets worn backwards cinched with a wide leather belt. Fur has been around the block once or twice, but Pink Tartan made it clear – this isn’t your grandma’s fur.
