Fanatical Fashion: The Denis Gagnon zippered LBD

When you think of the house of
Chanel, what comes to mind? Strings of pearls, perhaps. That iconic camellia. What about
Balmain? We credit them for bringing bold shoulders back, whilst
Donna Karan’s entire empire could be attributed to her deft skills at dramatic draping. You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this … My point: Attention, they say, is always in the detail. And when it comes to fashion — with all of its illustrious manifestations — a designer hones his craft to come up with what us editors refer to as his “signature look”; one that is often imitated, but rarely outdone.
Denis Gagnon and his partnership with mass-market retailer Bedo. Taking otherwise simple shifts and basic T-shirts, the beloved
Montreal designer stamps his signature all over the capsule collection by way of exposed zippers, silver chains and mesh… and we want it. Need it. Just have to have it. Don’t you? The Denis Gagnon for Bedo collection is available at select Bedo stores (Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City) on August 26th, 2010. For more information, visit: www.bedo.ca.
