Toronto Fashion Week: NKPR’s Top SS15 Picks

Posted on

Oh Toronto Fashion Week…that glorious time of year when the city dives deep into the fashion world and comes out a little more polished and way more fab! As usual NKPR was wrapped up in fashion all week long, whether in the audience at Christopher Bates, backstage with Mikhael Kale or on the runway with Rudsak. Even though Toronto Fashion Week is over, we’ve still got the fashion fever!

We’ve rounded up some of our top looks from our favourite designers that rocked the runway last week at David Pecault Square…

Christopher Bates

Contemporary menswear designer, Christopher Bates, showcased his Spring/Summer 2015 collection on the runway at the Fashion Week last Wednesday. Pulling inspiration from The English Patient, the collection featured whites, khakis and sand hues reminiscent of the desert landscapes seen in the film. The collection is bright yet sophisticated and edgy, capturing a safari-resort vibe that will no doubt have people planning their next retreat down south.

Rudsak

Rudsak unveiled it’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, the new era of cool, last week at Toronto Fashion Week. Entering it’s 21st year, Rudsak paired the brand’s notorious rocker leather pieces with sport chic-inspired street-wear, creating an innovative and edgy look, perfectly embodying all that is cool. The collection, comprised primarily of Rudsak’s traditional black pieces, featured accents of oranges, reds and whites that, along with the athletic accessories, perfectly brought the collection together.

Mikhael Kale

As one of the most highly-anticipated shows at Toronto Fashion Week, Mikhael Kale’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection was nothing short of amazing. The unique, dynamic collection featured pieces with provocative cutouts, hand-dyed organza, crystal beading and clear latex showcasing Kale’s unique ability to highlight the female form. Kale’s inventive and inspiring designs wrapped up Fashion Week on the ultimate high note and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!

Nominated for Fashion Icon of the year, Rihanna stole the show in a see-through, Swarovski-covered (200,000 of them to be precise) dress designed by Adam Selman. To top it off, she paired it with a matching head wrap and pink fur stole perfectly embodying her fearless take on old-school glamour.

2014 Met Gala – Our Top Picks!

Posted on

The office is buzzing with talk of the stunning outfits seen at last night’s “Oscars of fashion”, the 2014 Met Gala!

This year, the themed gala honoured the great American couturier, Charles James, whose classically glamourous designs were popular from the ‘30s into the ‘70s. His show-stopping ball gowns were famous for their detailed draping and intricate structuring, seen on many fashion icons of the time.

Needless to say, the celebs did not disappoint! From detailed beading (all hail Queen Bey) to old-fashioned glamour (can we talk Leighton Meester?!) we’ve rounded up some of our favourite looks from last night’s red carpet…

It may be cold and dreary, but one thing we love about January, February and March is that it’s awards season! Last night’s Golden Globes kicked off 2014 on a glamorous note, with a round up of looks that will set the stage for this year’s trends and future red carpet events. From sequins to colour blocking to nudes, each look was unique and made for a very dynamic red carpet. Here are some of our favourites!

Jennifer, Kate and Leslie’s looks showcased elegance, unique shapes and textures that had us swooning.

Jennifer Lawrence was stunning as always in Dior. We love the combination of structure and soft shapes (and she rocks that neckline! )

The 2013 Met Gala: Our Top Picks

Posted on

When we heard that the 2013 Met Gala would have a ‘punk’ theme, we were intrigued as to how the red carpet would approach such a bold, unique look. Suffice to say we were impressed by the diversity and unique take each celeb took with the grunge-inspired look. Some went all out (hello Madonna!) while others seemed to stray away from the theme (Anna Wintour with her florals, for example). Overall, it was a great night for fashion. Here are some of our favourite looks from the red carpet!
