Mackage is a hot ticket at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week, and on Wednesday evening, the tent was packed, buzzing with anticipation for the spectacle to come. Designed by Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy, Mackage is known for their stylish outerwear and leather jackets.
The parkas and leathers that walked the runway on Wednesday did not disappoint. I was particularly fond of a burgundy fur coat with black leather sleeves. Mackage often mixes fabrics, adding textural interest to their garments. Unexpected furs were also a huge component of the Fall 2013 collection. Fur sweaters and skirts put a unique spin on Canadian winter staples. Another oh-so-Canadian element was the red and black “lumberjack” tartan, which added a great pop of colour to the mainly neutral collection.
Wednesday evening also marked the premiere of Mackage’s handbag collection. A mix of exotic skins and leathers, these bags are sure to be on every Canadian girls lust list come fall. I am personally coveting the cobalt blue snakeskin cross-body bag!
