Dsquared² never disappoints me with their shows. They find inspiration from places that no other designers find, such as hockey, camp, Native Americans, and now the frontier. Yet they are still able to keep their looks modern and cool. I saw the game Oregon Trail right away from the first picture of this collection.
Dsquared² really is the highlight of Men’s Fashion Week for me. I love the washes that they come up with and the detail that they put into their jeans. The whiskering on some of the jeans this season were made with silver paint. My favorite would not have to be one of the great denim pieces, it would have to be the leather pants above. I love the zipper detail on them. These are a staple in their collection that has definitely been interpreted in a new fresh way each time. After seeing this collection, I’m interested in seeing what will come about in the women’s collection. You can checkout the collection below.
Katie Holmes was spotted going to a business meeting in Los Angeles, California. She was wearing a funky pair of polka dot corduroys by Isabel Marant. These are from the Fall 2010 collection. Though these are very out there, I think Katie pulled them off very well. This is actually one of my favorite looks from her. I love that she paired them with a classic white button-up.
Katie seems to be loving Isabel Marant right now. She was also spotted in suede Tobias pants before. If it is not a pair of pants by the French label, you can definitely count on her to wear the heels. Not to sound crude, but I think Katie must be enjoying her away time from Tom, when it comes to her style. She seems to wear a lot of heels and takes more risk with her style. What are your thoughts on Katie’s style?
Vanessa Hudgens was spotted once again in Black Orchid jeans. This time she opted for Black Jewel Skinny in Storm. Looks like she just had a quick trip back to Los Angeles. She was seen getting back on the plane at LAX again. I’m not surprised that Vanessa is wearing Black Orchid over and over. She tends to stick to one brand for a while after her first sighting, just like her Nudies, Diesels, and J Brands. Plus the wash is an amazing blue.
I like Vanessa’s look here. It is typical Vanessa, but I wonder how comfortable it must be to wear her thigh-high socks over her jeans. It seems like it would be a bit uncomfortable around the ankles. You can click here to purchase Black Orchid Jeans at Singer22.
Being bold is definitely the trend for the men during the Men’s Fall 2011 Fashion Week. D&G showed their Fall collection with many colors and I mean many. None of the usual neutral earth tones that the brand is associated with.
I am a huge fan of this collection. Much more than their Dolce & Gabbana line. The styling is just amazing for D&G this season. It is young and fresh, something that I am not used to seeing by the fashion house. There is a lot of bright, bold colors. Something that we don’t usually see in a men’s line, but the silhouettes and styling are so well thought out, they make the colors work. I even love that the collection was cropped heavy. I have been a fan of the cropped look and happy to see that it is popping up on the runways of a big fashion house. I would love to own all the pieces from this collection. You can check out many of the looks below.
