Toronto Fashion Week '09: Rudsak Spring 2010

My latest piece for

The Rudsak show is always one of my favourite shows to attend at Toronto Fashion Week and last night's presentation truly didn't dissapoint. Rudsak is known for its well tailored classic designs and for its high quality leather goods, plus they always have the hottest print and runway models!

For Spring 2010, Rudsak was inspired by the laid back glamour of the traveller's days in the '60s and the collection boasted classic, but modern key pieces in the shapes of coats, sweaters, dresses, shirts, shorts and fine leather accessories. The color pallette of this collection consisted primarily of black, white and grey with splashes of lilac, chili red and shadow grey for interest. The fabrics used in this collection included leather, suede, canvas, crumpled linen, techno nylon and coated cotton.

Every piece was wearable and beautifully constructed and all of the pieces worked together extremely well as a cohesive collection. I LOVED all of the leather jackets (especially the lilac one for men), all of the bags, and the coated cotton skirts which gave off a liquid look and feel. The two silhouettes that I quite enjoyed in this collection were created by the pairing of fitted biker style leather jackets with short skirts and by the fabulous grey voluminous leather jacket. Overall, this show and collection was edgy, modern, sexy, and totally chic!

Rudsak is a true testament to Canadian fashion design at its best and this collection reinforces why the Rudsak aesthetic is so interpretable on a global scale - anyone from anywhere would look amazing in a Rudsak piece. Check out the videos (and photo gallery here) above and below for a look at the show and to see the key looks from this collection!
