Marie Saint Pierre Fall 07 Collection
Last night Québecois designer, Marie Saint Pierre, presented her Fall 2007 collection at Montréal Fashion Week. Saint-Pierre's labour shows in the details - draping, ruching, delicate layers. Known for signature sophistication and unique and flattering designs, Saint-Pierre's show was surprisingly a bit more trendy than usual. Horse hooves shoes reminiscent of the silhouette recently re-popularized by Balenciaga, and slim-fitting body-con, cobalt trousers hit some of the season's most important notes. My favorite was the snug balaclavas that hugged the models' heads, pronouncing their lithe frames and making their faces shine like happy moons in front of all the flashing cameras.
