TORONTO - Against a backdrop of a brick wall setpiece, Mackage channelled the 80s and modern street style in its range of slick outerwear looks at World MasterCard Fashion Week on Wednesday.

Co-creative directors and childhood friends Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy incorporated leathers and nylons in the line's mix of moto jackets and vests, bombers, hooded windbreakers and trenches.

There were apparel offerings in the mix, with leggings, pencil skirts, shorts and halter crop tops fashioned from leather.

The retro touches reminiscent of 80s style were plentiful, from the pops of neon yellow colouring cuffs to the brassy exposed zippers and buckles. The palette was more muted with sand, light grey and mint hues interspersed among darker shades of black and reddish-brown.

Canadian supermodel Irina Lazareanu, who has walked for the likes of Burberry and Chanel, opened and closed the show.
