Holt Renfrew Meet the Designers


Bustle and Flow

Fashion week screeches to a sizzling halt with the fab stylings of Bustle’s design duo Shawn Hewson and Ruth Promislow. Strewn with autumn leaves, the runway is ready for the hunt club set. Imagine Lord Durham of Scotland out for a stroll on the heath, and replace the pipe with a fresh Toronto vibe – here’s what the women of Tdot can look forward to their gentlemen wearing next fall.

The show starts with a relaxed Foreign Legion inspired ensemble, but quickly moves into the relaxed, elite style of the country manor. A 1930’s palette of olive drab, mustard, and flannel grey, is revved up with polka dot shirts, racy trim, old school golf plaids, jaunty scarves, suspenders and caps. At last! At last! It seems we’re ready to dance on the graves of those baggy jeans that just keep on popping out of that crumbling coffin of oh-so-tired “style”.

The women in the crowd eagerly embrace Bustle’s tightly fitted jeans which define masculinity in the best way possible. There’s room on the heath for the ladies too, as they dive headlong into Katherine Hepburn casual charm with mensy trousers and buttoned down shirts. No cell phones here - for the leisured class the only thing worth calling are pheasants, dogs, and Bustle!
