Samuel Dong

For our second show at Montreal Fashion Week, we had the pleasure of seeing designer Samuel Dong’s all-new collection, SAMUEL DONG RED LABEL. The mood of his latest collection was quite sophisticated, romantic and elegant. Samuel Dong mentioned that his muse was the 1960s European woman and you can feel that vibe throughout his entire presentation. He used lots of exclusive Italian and French fabrics and they were to die for! The jacquard blazers were really gorgeous and we can definitely see a modern working mom adding one to her wardrobe. "Accordion pleats are especially important next fall," says the designer, "I also used them at the shoulders of some garments to exaggerate the shoulder line."

The models strutted their stuff down the runway in amazing pieces that were accented with feathers, faux-fur and organza. Their accessories were minimal but classic, we love the simple pearl earnings! The make-up and hair suited the atmosphere. They kept it dark but chic with red lips and dark black winged eye-liner - Amy Whinehouse style. The hair was pulled back into sleek and shiny pony-tails with rolled bangs à la 1960s pin-up! Absolutely gorgeous!

If you're loving the line and can see yourself sporting some these looks make sure to head down to one of his boutiques here Montreal, there is one in the Rockland Shopping Centre and the other at the Cours Mont-Royal in downtown Montreal. Parfait!
