Earlier this week, ELLE Canada did a little feature on me and my thoughts on fashion week, and when asked for my must-see shows, I named Pink Tartan among my top 3 with no hesitation. Over the past few seasons, head designer Kimberley Newport-Mimran has knocked our socks off with chicer than chic peplums, feathered skirts and head-to-toe emerald green ensembles that I’m still dying over, and the Spring 2013 collection she presented on opening night of World Mastercard Fashion Week this week was no less covetable.
Down the runway came a stellar cast of models that included Irina Lazareanu, Amanda Laine and pink-haired Charlotte Free in one ladylike look after another. The show opened with sweet butterfly print and lovely mint green floral pieces perfect for spring, and closed with a series of silver and gold metallic print separates that I would happily wear right now and into the holiday season. In fact, there’s a certain gold reptile print midi skirt that I’ve been daydreaming about since Monday’s show. I need it in my life, now.
Is it spring yet, Kim? Because I can’t wait to get my hands on this collection.
