If anyone knows how to pare down to the absolute
fall fashion essentials, it’s the fashion designers. And not just for their runway collections this season, but in their daily IRL style and jet-set travels. "It’s all about efficiency and ease of your life," says
Pink Tartan’s Kimberley Newport-Mimran. "I also think that having key wardrobe items that you plan out properly, saves a lot of time too, so it’s simple to get dressed versus making it a complicated try-on every time you go to your closet." Newport-Mimran is all about making efficiency fashionable, so she recently partnered with Tide to create the Washable Collection that launched in Pink Tartan stores across Canada on September 19, with pieces available at select The Bay and Holt Renfrew stores nationwide. The entirely machine-washable collection features the ladylike sleekness we know and love about Newport-Mimran’s Pink Tartan, in
day-to-night transition pieces (think a sharp tech pant and LBD worthy of Holly Golightly). "To be able to wash a runway pant at home, I think is an amazing advancement."
