Todd Lynn’s leather clad rocker is showing a softer side for spring. Pearlescent swishes of silk draped at the hip or cut into long, fluid pants gave a girlier appeal to a traditionally hard-edge collection. The pale palette also seemed fresh and new, with the only hit of true colour coming from a washed-out indigo blue that appeared on dresses, suits, and skirts. Other details came in the form of slashes of exposed skin at the hips and shoulders, some with fabric held together by neat rows of polished silver safety pins. Despite all the novelty, I can’t help but fall for the quintessential leather-sleeved jackets and neat knife-pleated skirts. Lynn classics die hard.
