Jeremy Laing Fall 2009: Stilled with Steel

>> Jeremy Laing continues to be a well-kept secret, but every season he makes a pilgrimage from his base in Toronto, the cult following increases, judging by all the people packed into the small, naturally-lit space — all the body heat made for quite the warm experience.  But maybe warm was appropriate, since his Fall 2009 collection, in addition to his usual thick wool geometric pieces, featured fiery prints inspired by a trip to a welding shop — dresses came with names like "anvil," prints "pyro," and gray colors dubbed "steel."  Fascinated by the welding uniforms and safety apparel, Laing siphoned the utilitarian appeal into exposed zips and bulging leather gloves, and tempered the edge with feminine pieces like seamed bunchy two-tone tights, flowy silk hems, and laser-cut net tunics.
