The always humble and generous designer, Thomas Bálint, hosted the Spring/Summer 2015 collection debut of fellow gal-pal designer, Devlyn van Loon, last month at his Queen West studio space in downtown Toronto.
Titled 'GLIMPSE', the womenswear line focused on edgy separates with dynamic cuts, modern silhouettes, and crisp tailoring in a range of darker hues. Bold blacks, fresh whites, and deep reds give this casual, springtime collection a more sophisticated, yet effortlessly simple, feel.
In construction and palette, the Devlyn Van Loon Spring/Summer 2015 line perfectly complemented the aesthetic of her designer host's label, which makes sense as she and Thomas Bálint have collaborated together on androgynous frocks in the past.
But, by showing only a select few menswear pieces from his own brand in a separate room at the back of his studio, Thomas Bálint made sure that guests knew that this evening was to showcase the talents of his respected protégé.
If you've never seen either of their work, or are just interested in how you can get your hands on some of it, both designer labels can be found at the Thomas Bálint Showroom on 960 Queen Street West in Toronto. For THE BRUNETTES, it was definitely worth the streetcar ride.
