Montreal-based designer Mélissa Nepton showed a strong collection of knits, outerwear and silk separates at Toronto Fashion Week. Entitled “Eolia,” the show references the idea of a nomadic, ethereal creature in a winter odyssey. Nepton deftly mixes textures in this Fall Winter collection, pairing sheer silk dresses and pants with oversized knits and felted wool coats on the runway. Our top picks? The designer’s dramatic ponchos, knit capes, and the oversized sweater turtleneck dress which closed the show.
