Tosca Delfino Swimwear LGFW

Swimwear! Tosca Delfino's line is a rare sight at LGFW

Oh look, a swimwear line at a spring/summer fashion week in Toronto. Now that's a rare sight. Not many Canadian designers care to limit themselves to something like swimwear, it's not a True White North specialty, so to speak. But Tosca Delfino knows what she's doing (or at least what she wants to do), having accrued experience in Italy and under the guise of locals like Arthur Mendonca. The show - and the line - are, in part, sponsored by the Cayman Islands tourism initiative; it's written all over the opening video of a skydiving wonder woman in a Tosca original, and the beach towel swag.

There's a remix of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" playing, meant to up the sexy quotient to work in tandem with all that skin or, perhaps, to distract from the more questionable pieces. What you need to know is that most of it is beach-friendly and perfect for a Cayman getaway (hey, this is what they want us to conclude, no?). There are great details, like a dolphin print v-neck suit, high-waisted '40s cuts and breezy '70s silhouettes. I'm not a fan of over-embellishments, and there's a few too many misplaced ones here that aren't practical unless you plan on spending the day not getting wet on the Thompson rooftop. The only unfortunate part of the entire line is the Toronto photo print on a sarong/maxi cover-up creation and a one-piece; no one's going to be wearing that, not here, not anywhere. Otherwise, my only other piece of advice is to wear sunscreen.
