1950s Elegance Meets 1970s Style: Lundström Fall/Winter 2011 Collection
April 4, 2011 3 Comments
A mix of real and faux fur outerwear and evening wear in feminine 50s elegance meets sexy 70s style means the Lundström Fall/Winter 2011 Collection can satisfy any woman, regardless of what side of the PETA fence she stands on. Judging from the enthusiasm in the crowd, the Yorkville-ready, Eastern European, принцесса-inspired pieces will no doubt make their way into the walk-in closets of Toronto’s most glamorous ladies. “We had [faux] Mongolian lamb, we had astrakhan fur, we had fox – it was a combination of faux and real fur. We use a lot of luxurious fabrics,” Tar Matossian, General Manager of Eleventh Floor Apparel (manufacturers of Lundström) spoke to me about the latest collection. “It was [about] ladies’ femininity. Bringing out the femininity, celebrating the femininity.”
Collection favourites included the faux Mongolian lamb vests and coats that kicked off the show, tie front llama coat in steel blue, ivory LaPARKA, feathered faux fur vest in chestnut camel, skinny camel leather pants, cranberry mohair tweed bouclé coat, ruby alpaca coat, mohair clipped coat in thistle, snow leopard printed chiffon dress, and the wool lace hourglass coat in black-natural. The evening wear was also quite stunning. Especially the black iridescent chiffon one shoulder dress. Very sexy. No plans for a dedicated menswear line, but Lundström does make a parka for men.
