Toronto Fashion Week FALL16: Malorie Urbanovitch

Malorie Urbanovitch

A youthful play on masculine influenced style with a nod to quiet ‘70s bohemia was apparent throughout Urbanovitch’s collection.

Of-the-moment silhouettes ranged from wide legged cullotte style pants, roll neck knits and off the shoulder evening options. It was a diverse range of everyday, highly wearable instant classics in quality yarn knits, silk, treated cotton.

Standout looks included an elegantly constructed grey full-length coat. It’s wide collar reached the outer edges of an exaggerated silhouette. Metallic contrast lining injected a hint of glamour. The coat was worn back with a chunky flax cable knit with a roll neck.

The grey coat concept continued with a deconstructed pant suit, worn as a wide leg trouser and relaxed fit blouse pair, belted at the waist for a feminine finish. The evening looks reflected a nonchalant chic with understated off-the-shoulder styles in navy crushed velvet and darkest ink denim.

The palette of grey, ink and calico were punctuated with soft olive and white gold. This was a highly versatile and appealing collection with pieces easily able to become wardrobe staples and work with existing neutrals. It also showed that the 70s moment, particularly this more bookish, pared down version, is far from gone.
