Dennis Merotto Spring Summer 2013 Lookbook

Toronto based designer, Dennis Merotto’s Spring Summer 2013 collection is perfect for office dwellers like me.  It’s beautiful, simple and professional but doesn’t skip out on the playful side by utilizing prints and colour blocking. The collection is combines silk, cotton, linen, leather, modal and polyester into wide legged pantsuits or easy wearing colour blocked tent dresses. Nathalie Atkinson wrote a great piece on Dennis at the National Post. He’s an industry heavyweight who worked behind the scenes for a long time whose now striving for his own spotlight. images: courtesy of Dennis Merotto

Dennis Merotto Spring Summer 2011

This is the debut collection for Toronto designer, Dennis Merotto. He has been working in the industry for 25 years and is currently the former Senior Designer at Lida Baday. I’m liking this minimal collection.  It reminds me a lot of Celine, which isn’t a bad thing. Merotto’s spring summer 2011 collection is an amalgamation of his many years of experience noticing what women really want and his rejection of the current fascination with fast fashion. He embraces the beauty found in the small details and the often painstaking process of executing well crafted and superbly constructed clothing. His debut collection is a tour de force of subtle yet casual refinement. Complexity is expressed in his love of opposite pairings of masculine with feminine, hard with soft, and light against dark. Textural fabrics, a simplified palette and his signature languid silhouette enhance the feminine form. images: courtesy of Dennis Merotto
