Travis Taddeo Spring/Summer 2011 collection

Last week on a seasonally warm autumn afternoon, I was invited to Travis Taddeo‘s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Presented outside of the Montreal Fashion Week arena, the showcase was held at photographer Max Abadian’s studio. What a delight it was to sip on champagne and indulge in sweet chocolate while taking in some great fashion.

For the upcoming season, Taddeo was inspired by slain celebs of yesteryear’s past. How fitting as he presented days prior to Halloween! For Spring/Summer, begone are the club kids attire, the young designer makes room for a more sophisticated and mature collection all the while remaining very street relevant with the use of  denim, leather and jersey designed in minimalist silhouettes. In a lineup of short and tight LBDs, skinny pants, mini skirts, sequined polka dot numbers, shredded denim tops  and supple silk sheats, the collection bared in black and white flirting with sky blue and earth-tones.

In check with the “Dead Celebrities” theme, Taddeo listed Freddy Mercury, Kurt Cobain, Audrey Hepburn and Jimmy Hendrix as his muses for the collection. Always provocative, printed tongue-and-cheek tees featured a decapitated head, a noose and a replica of a morbid River Phoenix.
