World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto took over the city at David Pecaut Square from Monday October 20th to Friday October 24th, 2014. Now that the celebration of Canadian fashion has ended, here’s a look back at a few of our favourite menswear looks that came down the runway and the trends that will define Canada’s spring 2015 wardrobes.

Thomas Balint

World MasterCard Fashion Week’s first menswear collection didn’t hit the Toronto runway until day two when Thomas Balint designer Michael Thomas debuted his upcoming collection. The Toronto-based designer has found European success in recent years with his minimal designs, but he has remained relatively unknown outside of Toronto’s fashion scene. At first glance, the designs may seem unconventional, but Thomas’s stoic collection of stretched tops and tanks, slouchy pants and seriously oversized jackets was incredibly well executed. Runway highlights include: a dramatic trench in rusty red and lengthy jersey T-shirts and tanks with stretched u-necks.

Bustle - Spring 2015

Husband-and-wife duo Shawn Hewson and Ruth Promislow returned to the Toronto runway on day two of World MasterCard Fashion Week to present Bustle’s spring/summer 2015 collection, dubbed “An American in Mykonos.” Of course, the all American rugby bro meets Mykonos seaside inspired prints theme was pretty hard to miss. Bustle’s boys wore the mixed in-your-face patterns with ease and the looser silhouettes (most notably suit pants) stayed true to the brand’s trademark preppy, classic style. Runway highlights include: slick signature suiting in a full spectrum of beachy blues, super-bleached denim jeans and on-trend harem-inspired joggers.

Wednesday afternoon menswear designer Christopher Bates showcased his final Toronto Fashion Week presentation before flees the city to set up in Milan in hopes of further expanding his namesake label and ensure better distribution in the European market. Inspired by scenes from the 1996 romantic drama, The English Patient, Bates showed off a variety of separates in a colour palette of off-white, sand and khaki tones. Runway highlights include: lightweight sweaters, a relaxed pair of desert digital camo pants and white pants with leather-trimmed suspenders.

Toronto-based designer Matt Robinson returned to the runway on day three with his note-worthy Klaxon Howl spring/summer 2015 collection. This season’s collection of military-and vintage-inspired separates featured trimmer fits, lots of details, some great plaid prints and plenty of lightweight fabrics. Runway highlights include: double-breasted suits in lightweight grey fabrics for the discerning gentleman, a plaid spring jacket and comfy long sleeve sweatshirts.
