Sleek sheers, chunky knits, colour blocked looks from Melissa Nepton

TORONTO - From slinky separates to cosy coats and chunky knits, Melissa Nepton covered her bases with an expansive collection of contemporary creations for fall and winter.

The Montreal-based designer took to the runway at Toronto's World MasterCard Fashion Week on Wednesday with her latest collection, dubbed Eolia, which featured stark contrasts in colour, pattern and structure of garments bathed in warm neutrals and creamy pastels.

Colour blocking was in abundance from tank-style jumpsuits to cigarette-slim leather pants. The collection also featured a striking array of sensual sheer separates fashioned from delicate silk chiffon.

Nepton's strengths were in the elaborate embellishments distinguishing her myriad outerwear looks, with voluminous cowl collars, draped sleeves and fanciful ruffles.
