Review Of Jean-Pierre Braganza’s Toronto Fashion Week Show- Science, Samurais & The Supernatural for Fall 2013
London-based Canadian designer Jean-Pierre Braganza returned to Toronto last night to show his Fall/Winter 2013 collection at The Shows, just weeks after he unveiled it for the first time during London Fashion Week. The sci-fi enthusiast clearly had his compass and protractor close by when designing his latest collection. With voluminous trousers and belted kimono jackets worthy of stylish samurais and occult-influenced prints fit for avant-garde Wiccans and necromancers, Braganza’s latest collection straddled the fantastical-supernatural realm and the more grounded world of math and science. In fact, it was impossible not to think of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Vitruvian Man while watching models strut down the runway. Braganza’s signature sharp tailoring and asymmetrical cuts certainly highlighted the collection’s geometric and occult influences. The primarily black, white and grey palate also had bursts of blues and oranges that added an extra da Vinci-esque element to the collection.
