New York: Toronto native Jeremy Laing has quickly become one to watch at the New York shows. Breaking away from the cold architectural styles that characterized his Spring collection, Laing’s F/W 10 looks had a more earthy, emotional quality. Washed leathers in rust and mud tones felt warm and rich, and oversized cardigans and sweaters in a popcorn knit added dimension to the beautifully composed ensembles. A splotchy print in rusty metal and acid green gave a moody feeling to sensuous draped dresses and fluid pants. The sumptuous furs, used for hooded coats, exaggerated jabots or as sleeves or trim, were all sustainably hunted in his native Canada. While the show was a departure, Laing didn’t abandon all the elements for which he’s known. The pieced leggings of spring were softened by panels of brushed wool that looked like lace, and tiny leather appliques that resembled industrial staples referenced the designer’s tougher side.
