Getting more relaxed and tougher with each collection, Michael Bastian showed looks that consisted of torn and tie-dyed denim along with corduroy and trousers in greens, khakis and purples. Though with the rougher looks, the Bastian aesthetic was still visible as the models walked down with the perfectly tailored jeans and blazers. Check out some of the looks below.
Isn’t this cool to see? Vermont based snowboarding company, Burton, has designed snowboarding gear that looks just like denim for the US team at the 2010 Winter Olympics. These pants look just like denim but they are not. They are GORE-TEX®, a wind and waterproof material that will not affect the Olympians performance. It is for the US team, so of course the inspiration behind it came from the classic American style of the US. It is amazing what they can do now a days, it looks just like denim! Expect to see Olympians: Elena Hight, Mason Aguirre, Danny Davis, Kevin Pearce, Jack Mitrani, Luke Mitrani, Steve Fisher, Scotty Lago and Louie Vito wearing the gear during the Halfpipe competition. Check out the close up views, you will be amazed when you see them.
