Tavan & Mitto - fall/winter 2006

Fashion hounds have a great reason to wish the summer away— to get into one of Tavan and Mitto’s minimalist masterpiece’s for fall/winter 2006. This sleek collection, named Emilia, is a charmer.

Montreal’s deluxe duo, Payam Tavan and Mike Mitto, have created cashmere and wool delectables in black, white, charcoal and cream for Canada’s coziest season.

The black cape, aside from being the perfect item to wear on a windy rooftop, hints at something retro-architectural. The double-breasted duster coat is made for dancing, yet manages to avoid flashiness, opting instead for gentle pleats. A-lines flare unabashedly in the collection, and lucky for us that they do.

The silk batwing-sleeved blouse is a breathtaking example of how comfort is never sacrificed for silhouette, and in Tavan & Mitto’s world, these elements are virtually inseparable. Skirts and pants are as slim as you want them to be, with elegantly high waistlines, and always immaculately tailored.

Is the past naturally elegant, or is the haze of memory is naturally beautiful? Perhaps you shouldn’t answer that question until you’re wrapped in T&M luxury.
