Beaufille at Toronto Fashion Week

With edgy, androgynous details, Beaufille maintained their usual contrast between masculine and feminine dressing during their most recent show at Toronto Fashion Week. With a basic colour palette, we saw fierce reds, (a favourite being that hi-shine, red bomber jacket) grey and lots of black- from cropped sweaters to shiny vinyl skirts-as well as the appearance of a youthful kaleidoscope prints, seen on floaty 70’s style dresses, for example. These softer styles gave a feminine edge to the collection, but tougher styles and accessories meant that masculinity was the overriding inspiration this season, with femininity being challenged by metal pins (adorning sleeves, pockets and collars), studded baseball caps, and statement metal necklaces.
