The 2nd night of Heart Of Fashion was titled “Men’s Night” for a good reason. It included mens fashions from Eleventy and Stag Provisions, as well as sexy women in swimsuits by La Isla and and women gliding down the runway in catsuits and jewels from Valobra.
Elevently, presented by M. Penner, impressed the audience with their collection, which ranged in a variety of fabrics from cool leathers to comfy knits, showcased on stunning male models. Using layering techniques, garments in bold patterns, were offset by contrasting outerwear, in earth tones, perfect for the winter season. The looks were completed by tying jackets around their waists, and adding fun pieces from capris to stylish footwear.
The flashy swim line presented by La Isla made us all long for Pina Coladas and sand between our toes. The brightly colored swimwear transitioned from rainbow to sea foam, as the collection alternated from bikinis to monokinis. Daring cut outs and unique lacing added a sense of adventure to the entire collection. Of course, upbeat music and sexy models, only added to the summer vibe!
Stag Provisions for Men had both seasons covered, as the collection started off with warm fall colors and ended in cool winter blues. Cozy flannel button-ups, paired with washed denim, were complimented perfectly by newsboy caps and quilted jackets. Not to be forgotten were the fun puffer jackets and stocking caps!
Last, but not least, was the show-stopping finale presented by Valobra Jewelers, which left the audience breathless. The models glided down the runway in sleek black cat suits, as their bodies were adorned in stunning diamond encrusted jewelry. Leather garters and belts added an edge to the gorgeous looks, and offset the delicate masquerade styled masks, each model donned. While I loved each piece, my favorite of the evening was the gold half glove, inlaid with diamonds.
