Androgynously Chic Collections: THE BRUNETTES Attend the Devlyn Van Loon Spring/Summer 2015 Collection Debut

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.

Minimalist Monochromatic Menswear: The David Andersen Spring/Summer 2015 Collection Offers Hues in a Few

Modern cuts and silhouettes combined with unique fabric blends told a style story of monochromatic minimalism during the David Andersen Spring/Summer 2015 collection, which was recently presented at Copenhagen Fashion Week.

The runway show focused on cool moto-pieces, Japanese-inspired tailoring, skirted trousers, and cut-and-sew combinations. Directional lines and slender shapes give the collection an edgy sophistication, making the David Andersen Spring/Summer 2015 lineup both hip and haute.

Saturated Sartorial Style: Louis Daniel Uses Cosmic Lighting to Amp Up the Colour in ‘Dark Hues’

In this exclusive editorial, entitled ‘Dark Hues’, for Male Model Scene, pieces from Stiaan Louw are thrown into the Technicolor spotlight and are elevated to astronomical proportions with expert highlighting from photographer Louis Daniel Botha. 

Basic plaids with oversized, relaxed cuts combined with shades of maroon and navy give this collection a laid-back, masculine vibe with detailing that remains understated while still calling for attention.
