I got the opportunity to preview Raven Denim’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection in New York. I feel like this collection was all about the details, with a lot of fun twists on trends.
One unique thing about this collection, is the unique use of pattern. For women’s styles, they had an arrow/chevron shaped print that starts below the knee. This was one of my favorite pairs of the collection, because I think it’s a quirky and subtle way to wear the printed trend. (See detail shot).
The colors are great for fall with great mustard, muted reds and grays. The colored denim comes in a variety of different cuts, including skinny and flare styles, as well as chinos. There are also a few more muted metallic hues, including pink and silver, which are not too shiny and very wearable.
The men’s collection was also really unique. One of the biggest stand outs of the men’s line is the use of Green Hybrid Denim technology. Raven developed fabric that uses recycled cotton and polyester materials. The collection features a few different cuts from this Green Hybrid technology. Although, for the time being, it’s only available in men’s styles. The men’s collection has a lot of slimmer cut styles, both in chinos and denim. They also offer printed styles, like herringbone and pinstripe.
Rihanna was seen leaving her New York hotel in a pair of Topshop floral shorts. She layered them over a pair of ripped tights and topped it off with a peach sweater. This look is definitely a bit more feminine than most things we see Rihanna in, but she toughened it up a bit with the ripped tights and sneakers.
Rihanna is in New York, busy promoting her latest singles and heading to the studio to do some recording as well. It always seems like Rihanna is busy working! You can buy these shorts from Topshop for $68.
