There was so much denim at the G-Star Raw show that this post has to be split into two, one for the men and one for the women. For their Spring 2011 collection, G-Star showed a progression. The fabrics started getting darker as the show went on. They started with the crisp white trend, then went with lighter washed blue denim and camel, then ended the show with dark blues and blacks.
They had many styles showcased in this desert inspired collection. There were of course jeans, jackets, and shirts. The jeans were sandblasted to look as if they were actually worn through the sands. They also had some jeans that had panels on the shins of each pair. They also showed the trend that many had wished would never kick off, double denim and I think it is here to stay. It started off a couple of years back and it is still going strong on and off the catwalk. You can check out the men’s denim looks below from the G-Star Raw collection.

Victoria Beckham seems to love the combo of tiny denim shorts with her Christian Louboutin Alta Bouton boots. She has been seen wearing the combination a couple of times now. For this day she was wearing a pair Abercrombie & Fitch shorts making her way to her car in New York. I like her look here. It’s very casual with the loose striped sweater, but it is not too dressed down because of the heels and scarf.
Victoria recently announced that she is adding a handbag collection to to her line. I wonder if the one that she is carrying is part of it. Are you readers excited to see her bag line? I’m interested in seeing what designs she has coming out. She has done a great job with her new denim line.
This is the first collection by former Nina Ricci designer Olivier Theyskens for Theory and it will have people waiting in line when it is released. All the pieces are very wearable and flattering. I really like the styling of this collection. You don’t really need to be over-dramatic with the look to make a statement. Just let the clothes speak for themselves.
There is also a lot of denim, something that was very scarce this season. They had many styles to choose from. There were flares, skinnys, cropped, skirts and colored. I think the best ones have to be the perfectly fitted flares and the grommeted, cropped burnt sienna colored pants. They just look amazing on the models. I also like the angled shots of these photos. It still showcases the clothing yet gives a different spin than the usual frontal shots.
