Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2013: Sid Neigum, Klaxon Howl & Cara Cheung
Scene-stealer “I wanted to follow my normal stream of inspiration,” a grinning Sid Neigum told me after his Spring/Summer 2013 collection last night. “Which is to make everything really clean and modern. But I wanted to take it a step beyond clean, like a surgeon’s feel—that’s where the hats came from.” The result? Beautifully draped, deceptively body-con jersey frocks in dusty blues, greens and greys, sharp shouldered blazers and a stand-out grey lambskin jacket with raw edges. It was a beautiful collection, and we can’t wait to see what Sid does next.
