TORONTO - The love affair with 60s style lingered on in the luxurious range delivered by Pink Tartan at World MasterCard Fashion Week on Monday, as the womenswear label channelled looks evocative of the fashionable era.

Kimberley Newport-Mimran drew on her "favourite disturbing blondes" — Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange) from "American Horror Story" and Marnie Edgar (Tippi Hedren) of Hitchcock's "Marnie" — as her muses for her fall-winter collection.

There was a Stepford Wife feel to the mirror-image styling of the bandeau-sporting blondes with darkened brows who took the runway swathed in an abundance of luxe accents like furs and leather gloves. The collection featured ultra-feminine, retro designs fully in step with the label's signature embrace of sophisticated separates.

Shaggy toppers, capes and cocoon coats contrasted with the succession of sleek sheaths, shirtdresses, slim-fitting cropped pants and suited separates featuring rich floral patterns and shimmering brocades.

In addition to leopard print tops and flirty pleated dresses in geometric prints, the line was awash in vibrant pops of colour, from hot pinks to deep plums, emerald greens and regal royal blues.

In a twist on the traditional, there were definitive modern touches on the classic pieces, from digitized blooms on dresses to green mesh-like cutouts adorning the sleeves and hemlines of a top-and-skirt pairing.
