Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2013: Jean-Pierre Braganza updates his geometric edge with 28 big-city takes
Way East at Toronto’s Andrew Richards Design, London-based designer Jean-Pierre Braganza returned home to present his third show as part of the ongoing offsite effort The ShOws. Once again, he played master of geometry, only this time, offsetting his zigzagging prints with loose flowing material that created a big city babe vibe.
The embodiment of Braganza’s sharp/slouch play was a three-piece tuxedo suit in which crisp lines at the top and flowing loose pants at the tips elongated models bodies (as if they needed the help). In Jean-Pierre Braganza’s signature style, he used asymmetry to create unique lines and shapes in every single look that walked down the runway.
Electric red and blue patterns burst throughout the collection—almost like a print of the highs and lows in an electro song. And to cap the looks: models wore an innovative, even Avatar-esque take on the braid and super-cat eyes.
