TORONTO FASHION WEEK - MARCH 2009

Lucian Matis, Fall 09
 

Lucian Matis

I had heard that models would be wearing antlers at this show, and it made me a little wary of what that could bring. But with wild teased up-dos and giant horn jewelry by Dandi Maestre, the models were gorgeous wood nymphs in printed silk dresses in shades of muted wild flowers. Not a centaur to be found – though the suede ankle coverings were a bit reminiscent of hooves. What the collection was really about though, was luxurious silks, wool, sequin shifts, sumptuous velvet in soft hues that were a welcome change to the week’s futuristic and hard-edged clothes. Plus, not a 80s reference in sight! I loved the bronze trench, printed shifts and gowns that floated away from the body. Apparently Matis had been suffering from pneumonia for the last month. Whether it was a fuzzy head, or a clear vision, he’s found something that works.
