Toronto: Pink Tartan Spring 2010

PINK TARTAN Spring 2010

After last season‘s combat boot clad models stomped down the Pink Tartan runway, we wondered if PT really stood for Pretty Tough.  This season, it seems that designer Kimberley Newport-Mimran decided to take a turn in another direction: back to the ’80s.  But rather than looking like just another runway rewind, PT’s spring 2010 collection delivered on the fresh factor. Bold shoulder pads and sequin-sprayed vests, cropped jackets and dresses drove home the opulent ’80s theme, while the spandex workout gear and anorak jackets lent a “Let’s Get Physical” feel.  It was all very Sporty Spice and it worked, big time.  Mixed in amongst all of this shimmer and shine were the tried and true PT touches: exposed zippers, nautical stripes, wide-leg sailor trousers and classic button-down shirts (which played the role of a sexy dress this time around).  Trenches morphed from cropped to maxi to coat dress in a range of go-with-everything hues like light grey,
midnight blue and tan. FASHION‘s final thought:  When can we get our hands on this hot collection?
