Moody Monochromatic Menswear: The Thomas Bálint Fall/Winter 2014 Collection is Dark and Dapper

Pushing boundaries with his revisionist take on classic menswear, designer Michael Thomas Bálint presented a monochromatic palette of slouchy silhouettes and exaggerated proportions combined with traditional tailoring in his Thomas Bálint Fall/Winter 2014 World MasterCard Fashion Week show last Tuesday.

Simple, yet sophisticated, suited separates featuring structured—and deliberately unstructured—pieces presented a vision of masculine style that was edgy, while also appearing effortless.

Chromatic Canadian Couture: The Mikhael Kale Fall 2014 Collection Embraces Vivid Textile Prints

Homegrown, Canadian talent Mikhael Kale kicked off the first day of World MasterCard Fashion Week with a stunning studio presentation that embodied a bold vision of new-age femininity. Mixing hard and soft elements, the designer showcased a line of ruched, cocktail dresses that were paired with oversized blazers, studded leather jackets, and show-stopping, riveted pieces that ranged from suede coats to an androgynous leather ensemble. 

Known for his innovative construction techniques, Kale followed up on his impressive Spring 2014 showing with a vibrant collection that mixed artful accents with sophisticated silhouettes. This unique yet wearable collection is a breath of fresh air for next fall thanks to its vivid color scheme that is reminiscent of hues worn in the warmer spring and summer months.
