WMCFW Spring 2015: Rudsak review

Day four under the big glossy tents in David Pecaut square saw Rudsak cap off the evening with its Spring/Summer offerings. Always a runway fixture at World Master Card Fashion Week, the leather minded label that started in 1994 by Evik Asatoorian continues to thriving in Canada, especially while leather—in any and all forms—remains to be the ultimate material for the fashionable set. rudsak This season, Asatoorian seemed to be enamored with bright pops of tomato red paired with subdued blacks, whites and greys. The transformation from last season's rock and roll ladies and gents entered new territory; this spring collection was fresh, young, sporty and rebellious. With the soundtrack blasting Phil Kieran and Depeche Mode, models walked the runway with a purpose, almost like they were in "beast mode" at some magnificent gym, wearing mesh crop tops, crazy-coloured camo, athletic-like sneakers and petite elastic waisted leather shorts—the street-wear influence was evident, as was the unisex normcore undertones. The new silhouettes, such as oversized anoraks and baseball varsity jackets are sure to be big sellers for the brand, especially since the athletic trend is sticking around. However we did see some of the brands quintessential pieces make an appearance like the Perfeco jacket, with an updated two-tone finish, and the notoriously sultry skirts found in buttery leather. As for the beauty look, Grace Lee, Maybelline Canada's lead makeup artist, created a very effortless cool girl. Meaning, everything was very minimal and tonal. A mattifying foundation was used on skin and no blush or highlighter was added. "The only coloured makeup on this look is the inner corner of the eyes," says Lee. "I mixed Too Cool and Barley Branded Maybelline Colour tattoo." The effect of the strategically placed colour was to make models' eyes look more open.  As for hair, Jorge Joao lead hair artist for Redken did a relaxed racked back but slight disheveled wet look, the end results felt low-key and fluently cool.
