Sophie Grégoire Trudeau Dons Canadian Designs With Japanese Flair During Japan Visit

Posted: Updated:

When Canadian designers add Japanese flair to their designs, it's a beautiful thing.

Case in point? Sophie Grégoire Trudeau's outfits on day 4 of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's visit to Japan for the G7 summit.

On Thursday, Sophie wore a custom-made Tanya Taylor jumpsuit which featured a kimono-style top with V-neckline and baggy sleeves. She paired the colourful one-piece with custom-made green fan earrings by Dean Davidson.

For the cocktail event in the evening, the 41-year-old mother of three donned yet another Japanese-inspired garment, this time custom designed by Wayne Clark. The golden yellow frock hit just below the knee and had long sleeves and a floral motif throughout. Grégoire-Trudeau paired the Canadian design with Zvelle shoes, an orange Mackage bag and Jon de Jong (JdJ) earrings.

According to Sophie's stylist and friend Jessica Mulroney, the dress code for the Japan trip was very specific.

"Japan is very conservative. The protocol is very specific. Stockings and sleeves at all times," Mulroney told HuffPost Canada Style. "With all the specifications, Canadian designers were able to create some beautiful looks that made her stnad out while still looking respectful and appropriate."

Mulroney also noted it was very important for the prime minister's wife to don solely Canadian-designed pieces.

The G7 summit will continue on May 27.
