Here is a look at the Meltin’ Pot Spring/Summer 2011 collection. There is no dark denim this season at Meltin’ Pot. Most of the looks were kept in medium to light washes. There were also some khakis and some greens, but no dark in sight. The inspiration for this season was vintage, which is right on trend with the ’70s comeback.
For the women there are shorts and jeans in, of course light washes. There are also some khaki chinos, a pair of white skinny jeans, as well as a pair of denim flight/sweatpants. For the men they have jeans and denim shorts that are torn and repaired, some green cargo shorts, some slouchy skinny cargos, and a pair of khakis. You can check out the collection below.
Claudia Schiffer was spotted in London wearing Hudson jeggings in Holywell. Claudia is just so gorgeous, even at 40 years old! Claudia is almost our first denim diva since she was the original beloved Guess girl.
Claudia is one of the world’s most successful models, having appeared on over 500 magazine covers. In 2002, Claudia married film producer, Matthew Vaughn and they have three children together: son Caspar Matthew Drummond (born 30 January 2003), daughter Clementine Drummond (born 11 November 2004), and a second daughter, Cosima Violet (born 14 May 2010).
Cropped Flares were a trend that I didn’t think would get picked up by the masses, but I am happy it did. Stars like Jessica Alba, Elle Macpherson, and Kate Moss have all been spotted wearing these styles. The style is very laid-back for the day and easy to dress up for a night out. Brands such as Textile Elizabeth and James, Victoria Beckham, Genetic, True Religion, and of course the popular J Brand have all come out with styles in many washes.
Textile’s versions come with cut-off hems in medium blue washes. Victoria Beckham has styles in khaki and black that come with a mid-rise. Genetic combined two other trends for their version, lace-up and cut-off. The pair by True Religion come in their classic light-blue wash. Then there are the Gigis by J Brand which come in an array of colors. They come in a dark rinse, black, even some waxed styles in both black and brown. Which ones will you readers be rocking with your ankle boots and flats this spring? You can purchase these styles at both ShopBop and Net-a-Porter.
