TFW Diary: Joe Fresh channels the swinging sixties with 54 fuzzy-knit and high-shine looks for fall
Joe Mimran opened his fall show—always among the most hyped and well-attended of Toronto Fashion Week—with a video of Veruschka seducing the camera in 1966’s Blowup, which set the scene for a colourful parade of swinging ’60s three-quarter-sleeve toppers, mini shift dresses, houndstooth prints large and small, and skinny capri pants on homegrown all star models such as Alana Zimmer, Heather Marks, Kate King, and our March issue cover girl, Anaïs Pouliot. Coats were tweedy or high-shine patent, often with faux fur additions so fuzzy, they might have been taken from a teddy. Oversized-cable knits looked cool with neon accents, prints, and patterns, and the finishing touches were jumbo tuques and pointy court pumps with neon orange soles. A flamboyant gent surprised Mimran with a huge bouquet of flowers as he was taking his bow—we concur, the brand deserves to celebrate.
