Opting for more cleaner lines and less exaggerated shoulders this season, Christophe Decarnin showed a Balmain collection that was inspired by music icon Prince, for this Fall. Seen on the runway were jeans in black, along with some in a purple hue. Also in the collection were sequined and leather pants in red, black, and gold all in the now classic motorcycle style. It wouldn’t be a true Prince inspired collection without flared styles, which is a nice contrast from the usual second-skin bottoms that Decarnin usually displays. The designer himself was also seen wearing a pair of his own jeans for his show. Check out some of the styles below.
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.
Sienna Miller’s label, Twenty8Twelve, recently showed their Fall/Winter 2010 collection at London Fashion week. The collection features hippie looks, acid wash jeans and more. One of the best parts is it’s fairly wallet friendly price point of $185 for the jeans.
Here is a look at all of the denim from the Diesel Black Gold Fall/Winter 2010 show. I watched the entire video from start to finish and it was fantastic! I couldn’t upload it to youtube as it was too large and I am no good and cutting videos in 2 as I am not very computer savvy haha so I found this video already on there. You can watch it by clicking here. Included below are loads of photos in the gallery and the press release for the collection.
A blend of passion and skill reveals the industrial soul of the Diesel Black Gold FW10 collection.
Diesel Black Gold expertise merges seamlessly with creativity, experimentation, craft and technique in the new FW10 collection, which skilfully evokes the brand’s roots and know how.
The collection, industrial in attitude but artisanal at the heart, reveals the Diesel Black Gold woman. Young and urban, with a sophisticated sex appeal, she is assertive and confident with a streak of independent rock and roll spirit. The deceptively simple pieces seem effortless and casual, yet they have an underlying edge of strength. Materials are layered or contrasted to express women’s complexity. Leather is combined with soft and artisanal denim in slim dresses and jumpsuits while velvet is covered with tulle to create delicate metropolitan looks. Leather emerges again in stretch mono-shoulder dresses and soft biker jackets. Delicate metal embroidery, inspired by yarn and denim weave, embraces women’s shapes while wool dresses with a bleached out look turn softness into rebellion. Denim pants are slim-fit, distressed in an artisanal way and hand-treated. Hammered vintage studs reinforce seams while metal rings and airbrush drawings give jackets a punkish attitude. Tulle is layered on denim to inject outfits with an additional dose of softness in contrast with the hardcore soul of accessories. Belts tightly bind the waist with oversized domed metal studs and silver serrated details. Treated crystal and chromed pyramids cover bracelets completing the look.
The Diesel Black Gold man is a city rebel. Military uniforms are reworked into tough outerwear. Conversely, knitwear takes inspiration from vintage undergarments. Protective gear features detachable plastrons of leather vests that gleam with metal hardware. Shirts for daytime and evening also glitter with carapaces of sequins or metallic applications. Techno-voile adds an unexpected poetry to jackets, shirts, knitwear and sneakers. Denim for men is slim-fit, but occasionally shows off this season’s new drop crotch. Tones have the grey or green cast of battledress while a layer of resin is applied on the light Japanese cloth denim.
