Denis Gagnon presents Softness with an Edge

What do you think of this dress?!!

This is one of the edgy but soft looks from the Canadian designer Denis Gagnon, who presented his SS 2010 collection during Montreal Fashion Week last week. His entire collection is full of contradictions. The versatile looks include sharp tailored leather jackets along with delicate, intricate draping. Feminine silks are contrasted with tough clusters of zippers. Soft colours like cream, pale pink and mint green are shown along side with strong all black looks. Most importantly, the precision, the craftsmanship and the high standards are thoroughly apparent in this collection.

Here is a photo of the lovely dress that I illustrated. You can see the full collection here. Thanks to Janine Falcon from Beauty Geek for a great post on this collection. Read it here.

Did you notice the tights? Those are some really cute two-tone tights from Topshop in black and mink. I think they go perfect with this look as they offer some sexy coverage with this body conscious dress. See them here.

The bling is a unisex silver feather and chain bracelet from the Canadian jewelery brand Harakiri, whose creations are regularly used by Denis Gagnon on the runway. See this dark gorgeousness here.


  1. Love the dress. Very edgy, clean and modern.

  2. Indeed it is! I want to illustrate more of this collection.
