Opening the second day of shows at TOM* was Whitney Linen , here are our top picks from the breezy collection that had us romancing the care free days of vacations gone by.
We are ready to pack our bags and travel to Saint Bart's with the sexy cool collection from Whitney Linen. From suiting to staples it was truly a beautiful collection we can't wait to take with us on our next vacay.
The second show of TOM* day two was Shelli Oh; a romantic Vespa ride of of collection with ties to a 50's Paris afternoon ride in the park.
Oh's presentation at TOM* was a finely tuned fusion of beat-neck and French dandy. Here are our fav looks from fresh off the runway.
Barlas flew us all first class to the Middle East with his TOM* SS17 men's collection - here are our top picks.
Traditional high end men's looks flooded the runway at the Zane Barlas SS17 show Friday night for the gent looking to take the business world in full regalia.
Caffery Van Horne
The follow up to Van Horne's premiere on the TOM* stage was a highly anticipated show of this seasons line up. The talented designer did not disappoint with a large collection that checked every box we had and even some we didn't know we had.
With sophisticated bold prints, luxury and highly covetable accessories, the assortment had us on our feet and putting together our entire next spring wardrobe from the comfort of our runway adjacent chairs.
Fresh prints and sheer cut outs round out our top picks for the L'Momo SS17 show at TOM*.
Joao Paulo Guedes
Short rompers with handmade braided tassels and clutches, kaleidoscope prints, exaggerated structure and subtle texture made the BRIDGE list when selecting our top picks from the Joao Paulo Guedes SS17 show at TOM*.
In one of the most anticipated shows of the season SWAM Swimwear flooded the runway with the sexiest and chicest bathing suits to come out of the Canadian waters in a long time. Here are our top picks ( the real winners were those in the audience of this hot@tom_fw day two closing show)
Show starts at 9:04 in the video below.
Whether en-route to a private beach somewhere, lounging rooftop poolside or taking the plunge off a Muskoka dock SWAM will check any box; all the while keeping you comfy and ahead of the trend with their standing ovation swimwear game. This may have been one of the collections that showcased the least amount of fabric, but the amount of sophistication, quirk and sexiness was had to compete with. Mad props from us here at BRIDGE! A Spring Summer TOM* would not be the same with out you boys!!! Bravo.
It's that time of year again guys where we lay out our favourite TOMFW looks from hot off the runway. Up first is Diodati by Luca Gallardo.
The Diodati by Luca Galardo SS17 was all about athletic breezy comfort. It was a true pleasure to see his continued evolution in the easy to wear effortlessly cool collection.
Lightweight summer fabrics with cool mesh tech cutouts and play on shape were all part of Xian's SS17 offering.
From a singing in the rain sheer blazer to an exploration of pattern and proportion
Candace Daniela was a true spring celebration.
Finezza - Au Nom De L'Homme
It's was impossible to select only three looks from Finezza show last Thursday so here we give you five. All packed with incredible tailoring elements and tres dandy decadence that had this BRIDGE 'er wanting to buy now wear always!
With the TOM* ss17 shows coming to a close we continue our review and top picks from last weeks runway presentations. Thursday night's closing show was Hendrix Roe - an absolute highlight and rising star in the fashion world who presented a celebration of the rebirth of a rockstar.
Ultra luxe suedes and a killer attitude came together in the SS17 Hendrix Roe collection presented at TOM* last week. The sophomore men's collection from Hendrix Roe solidly affirmed that the brand is on a fast track to superstardom. We can't wait to get our hands on this rockstar collection.

Some BTS photos from our recent shoot!
We recently shot an amazing beauty story with amazing MU artist Leah Marie and out of control talented hair stylist Mathieu Leblanc.
Here are some stolen moments and snaps from BTS on set.
Look 1 - Halfway through the first look the face was so on point and fresh we just had to get some frames of the beautiful Breanna looking like perfection. Can you say L'Oreal Campaign anyone?
Look 2 - The glamour continued with this sickening 50's Dior inspired beauty look.
The final look of the night was this insane editorial look that reminded us of something out of a John Galliano show or surrealist painting. Major props to Mr.Leblanc for the amazing hair look.
On stands this month is the trend issue of Toronto Home Magazine with a feature on artist Zan Rococo. Rococo recently sat for BRIDGE founder and photog extraordinaire; Jefre Nicholls.

BRIDGE was incredibly honored this season to head up the styling on the latest national ad campaign for TOM* Toronto Men's Fashion Week.
We put together looks from almost an entirely Canadian line up, showcasing the best in the country's menswear collections.
This week at BRIDGE we had the pleasure of working with some exquisitely crafted product from ZOA S/S 15 collection.
For those who are aren’t familiar with the brand, ZOA is a New York based contemporary women's apparel company known for specializing in embroidered silk lace blouses and delicate tops. Each design is uniquely designed, intricately detailed, and carefully fabricated.
High quality fabrics such as hand washed silks, cotton and mesh jersey are all produced in Korea and locally in New York.
The 13 year old fashion house is currently changing their brand direction. Adding a touch of edge by added asymmetrical prints and detailing, yet still staying true to their brands roots with classic silhouettes.
Leading this new era of ZOA is recent Parsons design graduate Netty Da'Vitashvilli, who has taken the reigns as the new head designer at ZOA. With an impeccable eye for detail & design, Netty is taking the brand direction to a whole new level, creating unconventional silhouettes such as oversized capes, vest and boat necks and marrying them with classic silhouettes. Netty is determined to tap into the world’s positive vibes’ through creating beautifully designed clothing.
We love ZOA’s effortless chic approach to style. Each piece was styled with ease.
