Menswear impresses at Luxury & Supercar Weekend


For fashionistas, luxury supercars may pair up nicely with a spiffy ensemble; but even a Lambo X2 or Continental GT Bentley convertible take a backseat when it comes to the fashion. And there was plenty of fashion and style on hand for the annual Luxury and Supercar Weekend at VanDusen Botanical Garden.

The luscious garden is the perfect setting for what seems to be a surreal moment in time. Only in one’s dreams could she/he be in such close proximity to high end sports cars with too many zeros in the price tag to remember. Yet every summer sports car aficionados get that chance to view their dream rides up close and personal.

With the dog days of summer coming to a close, and fall inching ever closer, the sun still blazed steadfastly. It wasn’t only the fancy vehicles that drew people’s attention. Three fashion shows added to the fanfare.

Oakridge Centre Fashion Pavilion produced the runway show, featuring several of the top brands, designers and boutiques. There was a good mix of menswear and women’s wear to keep the packed gallery entertained, and planning their fall/winter wardrobes.

Here are my top three picks for menswear:


Casual Elegance – Boy’s Co.

Hugo Boss top, Boss Jacket combined with Versace jeans is for the style-conscious man who wants to capture everyone’s attention strutting down the urban sidewalks. Versace’s slim-fit jeans are cool sophistication, while the Boss winter jacket and top are body-conscious providing its wearer with a slim silhouette. Now this is Casual Fridays at the office done right. Photo: Winston Wong.


Seasonal Silhouettes – Harry Rosen

Hugo Boss fur-lined zip-front jacket and Armani overcoat typifies the trend for fall: layers where each piece can stand on its own and make a statement, whether you’re moving from the subway, through the cold streets and into the café or bar. Versatility is key. Dress it up or down and head out with confidence! Photo: Winston Wong.


Fashion Forward – Boss Store

This Hugo Boss suit in cool blue was my favorite piece of the show. This is the perfect defector from the standard evening wear – typically in black or grey – and could be worn for after-work cocktails, dinner at a four star or sitting front row at fashion week. Photo: Winston Wong.
