Give Me the Bold Shoulder

Before Toronto's LG Fashion Week is complete, I thought I'd share some top picks for Spring 2010. First up, a gotta have it collection from Pink Tartan.

Marc Jacobs isn’t the only one who knows how to bring back the ‘80s. At Wednesday night’s Pink Tartan show, designer Kimberley Newport-Mimran traded in lace and leather for belts and bold shoulders. For the PT girl, Spring 2010 is all about mixing up mainstays (think horizontal stripes, trenches and wide-legged trousers) with a little luxe sparkle and shine. Pumped up shoulders were balanced by defined waists, cinched by the effortlessly knotted belt. Shades of grey got a fresh update, combined with the sophisticate’s go-tos – black and white. In the midst of an ‘80s fashion redux, how does a designer put her own stamp on it? It seems Newport-Mimran had last season’s rebellious muse step aside, in favour of her sporty sister.
