#WMCFW: No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Collection
The Canadian fashion industry can add another name to their stylish league: Wayne Gretzky.
The Hockey Hall of Famer made his design debut at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto on Thursday night with a menswear line he developed exclusively with Sears Canada.
The No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Collection for spring 2016 that came down the slick black runway did not set out to reinvent menswear or set any directional trends.
It was exactly the kind of sporty casual pieces the Great One himself might wear: trim fitting polos, soft blazers, smart looking flat front chinos and slim fitting dark denim.
The colour palette was sophisticated and subtle and ranged from dark blues to gunmetal greys. And patterns were simple checks or subtle stripes.
