Payam Tavan and Mike Mitto have been designing together since 1995. After a successful run in Europe, the duo moved to Montreal and have been regaling us with their collections ever since.
I loved that Tavan & Mitto had a very simple but yet complex style of their SS13 collection presented last night. I also really enjoyed all the cropped tops that were part of this collection and the flirty short and cut-out dresses. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the runway.
I absolutely adore this purple, cropped lace top I can already think of a few ways to wear it next season.
Usually I’m not a big fan of patterns that are busy however this colorful and metallic material was a big hit according to me and once again I loved the cropped top.
This is most def one of my favorites from the show. I love the color, I love the flirty short and bouncy skirt, the cropped top and most of all I love that it’s all made of lace. Genius!
Simple, white and flirty. I can imagine how gorgeous this dress will look on sun tanned skin.
This dress is very cute and perfect for a summer night of going out on the town.
I know we have seen shirts that are shorter in the front and longer in the back but what I ABSOLUTELY loved about this shirt is that you could tuck it into your pants or skirt but you still have all that flowy material in the back. Gorgeous shirt and I have no doubt that this will be a big seller next season although I would really want one now for the fall season.
I have seen lace tops, lace dresses and lace skirts in the past but lace pants is new but I adore these pants and think that it’s a great way to re-invent lace materials.
All in all I have to say that I LOVED what Tavan & Mitto presented last night. I was my favorite show of MFW day 1 hands down. It was innovative, complex but yet so simple and most of all very wearable. I don’t think I saw once piece that I would not be interested in wearing myself.
Congratulations Tavan & Mitto your show and collection was amazing!
