J & K at Toronto Fashion Week – Pavoni F/W 2013

4 Apr

It’s our 2nd day at Toronto Fashion Week! We were so excited to hit the tents again, and even more excited to see one of the most anticipated shows of the season – Pavoni Fall 2013. Here’s a bit of a lowdown on Pavoni, for those who just aren’t too familiar with the brand. Pavoni is a fairly new kid to the couture fashion block. Think – Luxe, sophisticated, elegant, sexy, intricate, lace, sheer, embellishment, ballroom, glitter, jeweled, classic, unique..we can go on, but these are just some of the words that come to mind when we think of some of the pieces that Pavoni has created. Absolutely unreal.

Pavoni was an incredible and classic catwalk scene. We definitely wish we had a number of Gala events to attend so we have an excuse to own these beautiful gowns. Hopefully Holt Renfrew will have a trunk show soon so we can see these gowns in person! And maybe try on for fun? 😉

The History Behind Halston Heritage

3 Jan

Hello friends!

Welcome to the new year! How did you celebrate? I’ll tell you how I spent a few hours the day before 2013 officially arrived. I spent it reading all about the history behind Halston Heritage, as I’ve always been interested in what they were about. I have yet to be disappointed in a piece of clothing from Halston. Every time I see a piece on a beautiful woman or blogger (Wendy from Wendys Lookbook rocks this jumpsuit flawlessly here), I find myself wondering how Halston began. Roy Halston Frowick catered to luxurious American fashion of the 1970’s, using some of my personal favorite fabrics such as cashmere, suede and jersey. (Who doesn’t seriously love the soft versatility of jersey?) He is known as the father of minimalism, using simple pared-down silhouettes with flow and movement. His clientelle included such names as Andy Warhol, Bianca Jagger, and Elizabeth Taylor. Did you know that Roy Halston is the man behind the legendary design of the “pillbox” hat? He actually designed the one Jacqueline Kennedy wore in the 1960’s.

Taking a look at Halston’s Pre-Spring 2013 collection, it’s clear to see why celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker, and Miley Cyrus are fans. Modern design with clean lines, comfortable fabrics, and for lack of a better word – the looseness! All of these pieces are so beautiful in their own way. From the neutral shades to the pops of color – and offer such comfortability in wear. While Halston also caters to those looking for a tight little dress for that night out, I’m sure we can all agree that we love to look chic while not having to worry about sucking it in. (Hello!) halstonps2 I would love to own a piece from Halston Heritage. I am especially loving the orange on orange leather and cashmere combo, as well as that absolutely beautiful sequined jacket. What are your favorite pieces?halstonps4halstonps4halstonps3

Roy Halston Frowick passed away in March of 1990 and his legacy lives on through his team based out of Los Angeles. Check out the rest of the collection and more at Halston.com
