For a designer who works predominantly in black, fall was an optimistic – even romantic – departure for Neigum. His striking dark rose print, which worked best on the cocoon coat shown here, added buoyancy to his post-apocalyptic collection.

In their grunge homage to fall 2013, sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon steered clear of the ubiquitous plaid shirt and instead used baroque prints to reinvigorate the era. The best piece? A glossy black motorcycle jacket with matching skirt. Disenfranchised youth never looked so good.

Leave it to a Montrealer to extol the virtues of winter, as Duy Nguyen did by channeling Narnia’s White Witch. The winner of last year’s Mercedes- Benz Start Up prize, Nguyen has clearly benefitted from the mentorship program that came with the win. Icy blues predominated in his looks, as did the elaborate embroidery and swan-like silhouette on display in this smart skirt suit.
