Filthy Haanz GOLD Label to debut in Toronto this Spring
Is there a better collection than resort wear? Not when you’re dodging massive icicles and dreaming of sand and sun like us cold weather dwelling Canadians. There are few Canuk designers that present the more laid-back resort wear collection, and even fewer who do it better than Montreal-based Filthy Haanz.
The brand’s name has a super cool meaning behind it, explaining “while filthy has come to define “dirty” or “messy” we term a “filthy hand” as the ultimate tribute to work and creation, the foundation of life.” Building on that notion, Filthy Haanz creates collections that are “belonging to all languages and nationalities…and remind you that as you wear our clothing and view our fashions, this is a tribute to you.”
With immense success following their resort wear collections in seasons past, Filthy Haanz will proudly present their Fall 2014 preview at Mastercard Fashion Week this March. In addition to their original and celebrated resort collection, Filthy Haanz will debut a new luxury line, GOLD, also at this spring’s MCFW to much anticipation and excitement. Look at their amazing invites! (Full disclosure: the gorgeous gold confection of a package came with fittingly, deliciously gold Ferrero Rocher, but I excitedly scarfed one immediately upon discovering so they didn’t make it in the photo. Nice touch, though!)
The GOLD collection is “designed for the jetsetter who works hard and plays hard; GOLD brings sophistication and raw style that takes individuals from 7pm-6am, compared to your typical 9-5.” Inspired by the glamorous and ever-buoyant 70s disco era, GOLD’s debuting collection will offer blazers, cocktail dresses, graphic print shirts and bustiers, all in original prints with full-use of sequins, mixed materials, and leather for an untamed and sophisticated line of luxuriously accessible swim and read-to-wear resort items. The invite package came with adorable teaser sketches to give a taste of what’s to come.
