Canadian Designer Mikhael Kale Debuted Modern Collection of Sleek Separates for Spring/Summer 2014 Season

TORONTO – Mikhael Kale’s runway show launched the Spring/Summer 2014 season of World MasterCard Fashion Week with his tightly edited collection of modern garments which play with angles, lines and shading inspired by artist Mary Reid’s geometrically rendered portraits. 

“Toronto is home to both myself and some of my most supportive clients. To be able to show in World MasterCard Fashion Week allows me to put on something special for them. In addition, it is equally as gratifying to contribute to the Toronto fashion industry from within,” said Kale.

After studying at London's Central Saint Martins, in 2003 Mikhael Kale began working in Milan for labels such as Antonio Marras and Bally. In 2007, Mikhael began his eponymous label “Mikhael Kale,” and has since been featured in The New York Times Style Magazine, WWD, and Nylon and dressed celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Sienna Miller and BeyoncĂ©

Kale’s Spring/Summer 2014 World MasterCard Fashion Week runway collection of colourful cutouts and shadows, and cool moto jackets was set to music by DJ James Drummond. Models walked the catwalk with hair styled by Redken’s Cynthia Duplantis, makeup by Lead Makeup Artist for Maybelline New York Canada Grace Lee and nails designed by essie Lead Artist Rita Remark.

“The collection is youthful and young-minded, but not young; it's directional. It's all about technique; the collection needed to go super modern. It's very streamlined, not simple, but tightly edited,” said Kale. “The result is a method we created that utilizes a leather padding technique that bonds mirrored shapes. Like many of my collections, Spring/Summer 2014 is a culmination of technique, shape and a styling direction.”
