Cluc Couture – MFW19 – Spring 2011

CLUC Couture bared their Spring/Summer 2011 collection after a brief hiatus from Montreal Fashion Week. Up close and personal, the models began the show by circling around the attendees in nothing but their undergarments. In a live exhibition very reminiscent of Isaac Mizrahi 1995 Unzipped documentary, the show was as much of the parading of the clothes as it was of the disclosure of backstage frenzy.

I was delightfully surprise with his collection of slightly gender bending attire consisting of sheaths, unisex pants and robes. With an ethnology influence, the clothing was fluid and flattering which flowed in layers of cotton and silk and structured with satin hemp seen on jackets and tunics.  The neutral colour palette of white, grey and black was accentuated with lime and blue.

Partaking in the second edition of TVA’s reality show “La Collection” design competition and launching CLUC Maison in November a line of linens made from sustainable fabric, the veteran designer seems to be hinged onto a new direction that deems promising.
