TORONTO - Denim company Triarchy infused tried-and-true wardrobe staples with a modern twist — and some flash — at Toronto's World MasterCard Fashion Week on Thursday.

With a pile of jeans positioned at the entry to the catwalk, a trio of models clad in their skivvies ambled down the runway, each selecting and sliding on a slender pair of slim-fit dark wash indigo jeans prior to taking their walk.

High-waisted, cigarette-slim skinny jeans were the dominant style for women. Amid a myriad of true blue hues, neutrals and olive green, vibrant mustard, emerald and rust hues were also in the mix, as well as shimmery silver metallics and coppery bronze.

Bare-chested male models wore both slimmer-fit and more relaxed styles, with medium washes and dark indigo hues as well as the application of a leather wash — a nod to Triarchy's custom motorbike background.

The Vancouver-based label, whose production is based out of Los Angeles, was founded by sibling trio Mark, Adam and Ania Taubenfligel. The label was among the finalists in the Mercedes-Benz Start Up program for emerging designers last fall.
