One of Canada’s best, Philip Sparks is always one to enchant. For his latest outing, Sparks was inspired by cottage life and the getaway ads of the 1950s Canadian Pacific Railway. Acting on these inspirations, the spring collection offers a spirited reinterpretation of leisure and class. Turning to suiting and rainwear, Sparks romanticizes the simple life of past generations. Relaxed loose fitting shorts and trousers define the collection’s casual suiting, while coated polyester provides outerwear with an updated water resistant look. While relatively baggy high waist khakis are a nice alternative to the slim silhouette, the collection’s standout is a delightful take on the fisherman’s outfit. The aforementioned ensemble is the perfect example of Sparks’ charm in creating pieces that are nostalgic, but relevant and modern.
