Lauren Bagliore delivers mix of versatile, refined luxe looks for spring/summer

TORONTO - Lauren Bagliore served up a breezy mix of refined, luxe looks in her spring/summer collection Thursday at Toronto's LG Fashion Week.

The native New Yorker, who divides her time between the Big Apple and Calgary, where she lives with her Alberta-born husband, dubbed her latest line "La Risurrezione: Dalla Scura alla Luce," an Italian translation meaning "The Resurrection: From the Dark to the Light."

Largely steeped in a colour palette of black, grey and ivory with punctuations of paler blush-coloured hues, the designs were a decided study in contrasts between edgy, tailored looks to more ethereal, free-form creations.

Bagliore offered bolero jackets with a twist, mixing striped and monochromatic patterns.

She showed her versatility with sleek, draped tops and dresses in matte or viscose jersey, some sporting convertible straps or hoods to transform the look, shape or silhouette of the piece.

Bagliore showcased slightly more seductive numbers, including clingy, knotted-back or halter dresses and more delicate fluttering textured silk creations.

Baggy Japanese-style trousers, cigarette-slim shirred leggings and lush metallic skirts were also in the mix.
