Ça Va De Soi

As you all know, Montreal Fashion Moms had the pleasure of attending Montreal Fashion Week again this season. We started off the evening with Ça Va De Soi, a luxe knitwear collection designed by Montreal veteran Antoine Nasri and his daughter Kinza. The daddy-daughter duo showed plenty of soft, simple and sophisticated looks with lots of pencil skirts, twinsets, color-blocked dresses, leggings and turtlenecks. The color palette was monochromatic with plenty of gray, beige, camel, crimson, burnt orange and a hint of mint. They completed the look with Parisian chic, barely-there, fresh-faced makeup and hair pulled back in a ballerina bun. Oh la la!

While the minimalistic presentation didn’t bring the wow factor we generally like to see walking down the runway, (besides one model’s rock-hard breast implants that were noticed by pretty much everyone) their pieces were simple, classic and most of all wearable. The collection is ideal for those looking for high-quality, every day basics perfect for layering or mixing-and-matching. Lysanne Pépin, owner of the successful boutique Espace Pépin in Old Montreal, said it best in her interview with The Gazette’s Eva Friede – “Avant-garde is nice, but we need clothes that are wearable on the streets."
