Dace’s collection of subtle chic

Dace Moore’s seven-year-old eponymous line, Dace (dace.ca), is an exercise in deceptive simplicity. While no one would call a collection of pencil skirts, silky blouses and slim-cut pants revolutionary, there’s something to be said for chic subtlety–like the cool girl whose outfits never scream, but nevertheless make you ache to know their origin.  For example, the Fall 2009 collection features pleated pants in a just-so shade of grey and a blouse with a neck-tie that sweeps to mid-shin with more drama than all the neon in the world could muster.
