Comrags at Toronto Fashion Week
The ageless, timeless Comrags collection was filled with fall wardrobe staples. Designers Judy Cornish and Joyce Gunhouse presented a simple silhouette with comfortable knits and well-tailored suits. Ruching along the seams added an unexpected flourish to some of the more structured pieces.
Another unexpected aspect of the show was the absence of sky-high statement footwear on the runway. Models smiled in their flat, lace up boots designed by John Fluevog. One girl's open coat swayed with her as she nearly danced to the honky tonk music.
Styling was simple as a brown leather belt was the only accessory. It cinched the waists on both structured coats and oversized knits. For a cardigan, worn backward, it was the perfect touch. The autumnal palette included brown, green, taupe and grey. Orange added a fitting pop of colour to the hunting-themed collection.
The ladies at Comrags designed dresses for every occasion for F/W 2010. The collection included jacquard, large scale plaid and knit versions. There were prim sheaths and egg-shaped sweater dresses as well. One loose-fitting standout had an open collar resembling those found on the coats. Perhaps the prairie girl aesthetic isn't for everyone, but Comrags makes dressing it easy.
