Melissa Nepton delivers laidback luxury with her cruise collection

TORONTO - Melissa Nepton brought a luxurious ease to her cruise collection set in the concept of "an enchanted summer morning" showcased at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto on Tuesday.

With a succession of sheer separates encompassing delicate short-sleeved blouses, jumpsuits, ethereal dresses and tie-front coverups, there was an effortless elegance to the looks unveiled from the Montreal-based designer.

The collection was steeped largely in a palette of black and white with hits of red, pink and orange among the colour accents, with ample doses of colourfully-crafted prints reminiscent of watercolour paintings.

The line showcased silk garments featured atop structured tunics, with full-skirted dresses and palazzo pants also featured in the new collection.
