Prints were all over the Just Cavalli show in Milan. That wasn’t the only statement either, denim made many appearances as well. He had every article of clothing you can think of made of denim. There were shirts, vest, jeans, skirts, jackets and more. The collection, of course took inspiration from the same time period as many other designers, the ’70s.
The inspiration was very literal here than many others. He adorned many of the pieces with patches, panels, and florals. But they weren’t just for the women. Roberto Cavalli also sent down some looks for the men that were also sanded and encrusted. You can check out the denim looks below.
D&G is always one to show denim in their line. They also showed tons of color, something that New York was definitely lacking and florals was a huge fixture in the show this season. They had the print in many lively colors such as lime green, pinks, reds, and yellow. The denim pieces of the collection consisted of some super wide-leg high-waisted jeans, a denim apron dress, and a blazer as well as a bag. They also featured a jacket with some denim piping.
I think this collection just oozes Spring. It just looks so cheerful, fun and easy. I find the styling of the show to be kind of hilarious. It looks to be inspired by Italian wine stompers or maybe jam makers. It makes me think of an I Love Lucy episode and if you’ve seen the show, you know what I’m talking about. You can check out some of the pieces from the collection below.
Ashlee Simpson has been making the rounds at New York Fashion Week. First she served as a model for sister, Jessica’s new denim line. More recently, she was snapped at Max Azria’s runway show. She walked the step and repeat, while posing for pictures with Max Azria.
Ashlee wore a pair of flared jeans, a leather jacket and leopard print heels. Ashlee’s jeans are by Levi’s. She’s been wearing a lot of the brand while in New York. While I think this outfit encapsulates Ashlee’s laid back rocker style, I don’t like it at all. I think it’s far too casual for Fashion Week and I don’t like the way her jeans fit her, they look like they’re falling off her tiny frame!
I am seriously loving the waxed denim / faux leather look denim! The latest celebrity to be caught rocking the trend is Elle MacPherson. She was see by the paps at the Julien Macdonald Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show for London Fashion Week in London, England. I’m liking her all black look here!
Elle’s jeans are a pair of skinny leather look jeans from Sass & Bide which she paired with ankle boots, a leather biker jacket and and a black top. I like that she added just a hint of colour with a silver belt. I have to say, Elle is my favourite UK celebrity to blog about, her style is always so different and she really knows how to put an outfit together. Not to mention her taste in denim, she has some of the hottest jeans out there!
