Designer Jean Look Books
This is the new Spring/Summer 2012 Look Book (taken from their runway show) for MET Jeans. They are never a brand to be shy in the detailing and distressing department, but this season they took it even further! They have extreme floral prints, bright colours, metallic leopard prints and much more! I have included some information from the press release below. I love those leopard print jeans above!
MET, leading Italian premium denim brand, has launched their collection for Spring-Summer 2012. The new collection takes its inspiration from the different sides of the Greek island of Mykonos: from the picturesque whitewashed houses and windmills, surrounded by the deep blue sea; to Mykonos, the Mecca of nightlife with its bright neon lights, bustling streets lined with bars, clubs and throngs of partygoers. The new collection from MET embraces the Mykonos inspired themes with different styles and colour palettes, although denim remains the focus throughout.
The lightness of the summer is interpreted with the use of bright white in precious, delicate lace, silk, lightweight cottons and raw effect linen and infused with a range of blue denim tones reflecting the townscape of Mykonos island and the surrounding sea. Must have pieces from the collection: “Jen” boyfriend fit jeans in a faded blue denim; “Gechinoge” skinnies with leopard print pattern created from distressed denim markings; “X-Pampelonne” two-tone dip dye denim shorts, skirts and skinny jeans; and finally “Soul flower” shorts and jeans – distressed denim contrasted with a delicate white lace embellishment at the hem, typical of the Mediterranean culture. Comfortable, versatile separates, essential for any summer wardrobe.
Simple and natural, MET s reinterpretation of the 1970s hippie chic. Bold floral prints dominate, giving an overall hint of bohemian: on denim jackets, shorts, skirts and pants (natural and neon colour palettes); and also lightweight fabrics, jersey and cotton, for dresses and jumpsuits. Key pieces: the “Geffer” skinny pants in micro-floral denim, “Carine” hot pants and “Jessica” skinnies in a vintage floral denim, and “Lemy” salmon pink abstract floral crochet vest layered on dark grey jersey – all essential pieces to pull off the flower power look, a guaranteed favourite for SS12.
The timeless 5 pocket skinny “X-Fit” jeans in the full range of pastel colours, from baby pink and powder blue to vanilla yellow and lavender purple. Highlights include: “Lola” acid wash denim in three tone dip dye and silver stud detailing, on shorts, pants and vest; and the “Janice” graffiti print frayed denim hot pants – all must-have pieces for the long summer days and nights.
Michelle Siwy has really taken her Spring/Summer 2012 Look Book in a completely new direction. Usually her Siwy Look Books have that soft, light, whimsical feeling of California and they feel laid back, but this one feels more fierce and high fashion! They chose Bambi as their model who recently covered V magazine and was chosen as one of the top models right now by Carine Roitfeld. I think Bambi really captured the new feel that the brand was going for.
The styles of jeans and shorts are still the same though, there are the bright colours like reds, purples, yellows etc but some have a faint tie dye look over them and others have an ombre feel to them. There are also the classic blues in different shades. There are actually quite a few pieces that I would wear myself from this collection. I have always been a fan of how bold and fearless Michelle is with her designs and I love that about the brand, she’s never afraid to push the boundaries and experiment. What do you think of the new Look Book?
Here is the new Spring/Summer 2012 Look Book for the guys from Guess. It features a lot of lighter washed denim as well as dark denim. I love the look of the light wash denim shirt with the stone colour chinos. I have always liked those kinds of outfits and I was pleased to see some red denim for the guys too! I hope more guys will want to try out coloured denim! Are any of you a fan of Guess?
Here is a look at the new Pre-Spring/Summer 2012 Look Book from MiH Jeans. Focusing on several key trends including vintage colours and the flattering and versatile flare, the collection has an easy elegance making it perfectly wearable and effortlessly cool.
New silhouettes are offered alongside the classic MiH fits; the Corky Vintage Flare, the Monaco Cropped Flare and the Skinny Marrakesh – a new take on the bestselling Marrakesh Kick-Flare. Also shirting in delicate sheers, stars and stripes compliment an array of beautifully soft washes and a small range of MiH Collection pieces round out the Pre-Collection; the grey Shearling ‘Chekkie Jacket’, the polka dot ‘Pretty Dot Blazer’ and the round neck, hand-woven multi colored Aztec Jacket.
The result is an understated femininity that is both laid-back and sophisticated. The collection is now available to buy at MiH-Jeans.com. What do you think of it?
