This Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook from Toronto’s Noir et Gris shows a rather velvety blend of pastoral influence and Druid imagination. A flat brim hat and a gauzy scarf join forces with a black long-sleeved tee and a flowing robe-cape type thing for a presentation that would be very convincing were there not an indecisive meekness to some of it.
We are pointing to the graphic t-shirts in this regard. They are nice and all, but seem out of context with the more dramatic pieces. Still, the flowing lines and smattering of unfinished edges hold our interest. We are ready to see some more.
