Toronto's LG Fashion Week Fall 2011 Collections Part Deux: Arthur Mendonca
After a three year hiatus, Arthur Mendonca is back to the runway with his latest collection for F/W 2011. Drawing inspiration from the glamorous and glossy seventies, his designs showcased a lot of v-necks, passionate purple and some razzle, dazzle with a little sazzle. These first looks featured featured forest-inspired prints mixed with a twinkling sparkle reminiscent of a starry night. The first look to the left features a tried and true silhouette with gold sequins and a classic cinched waist. The wrapped-up shoes with the furry details makes this look extra glam. The lightweight coat to the right is accented with a black fur collar creating a perfect look for late night out.
The dominant colour of his collection was featured in everything from dresses to separates, but it truly shined in these dresses that are perfect for any fashion powerhouse on a mission. The look to the left features a floor length show stopper reminiscent of Jerry Hall circa 1970 with its gathering at the waist and flowing skirt. The look to the right features a dazzling purple velvet v-neck dress perfect for standing out in the crowd for any party or hot date.
