Autumn Hits Diesel Island! See The Fall Campaign Here


Summer may have reached its peak, but at Diesel Island (where the residents, who recently wrote their own constitution, enjoy non-working holidays 365 days per year), things are just heating up for autumn/winter. The newest campaign features sultry shots of island residents (models include Josh Beech, Andrew Smith, and Jonas Kessler) in new denim styles like the top stitched work shirt, comfy knit sweaters, and tailored denim dresses & skirts with chic industrial edge. As the residents adapt to their developing society and the changing weather, Diesel lets us in on a little hint re: the future of this society (which makes us think the entire campaign may be an irresistible metaphor: “We’re f**king it up.”

G-Star Raw Highlights From Bread & Butter Berlin 2011


G-Star has been blowing up their facebook with coverage from the Bread & Butter trade show in Berlin this year, from key summer styles and new fall pieces on the runway, to behind-the-scenes model prep and after-parties. The spring/summer 2011 key looks included head-to-toe denim for girls and guys with some outerwear & khakis thrown in. Autumn/Winter 2011 saw the inclusion of feather accessories, thick leather belts, sweaters, and other fall layering essentials and sustainable fabrics. The outdoor rec area held pavilions full of product, and G-Star’s 3.135 m2 compound was (obviously) full of raw denim goodness. Check out the images below.

AW 2011 Menswear Roundup Part 2


From Milan to Paris  its safe to say that the Autumn/Winter 2011 Menswear collections that have been showing these last few weeks are anything but underwhelming. Every designer has taken a step in a different direction, which makes for great and innovative fashion especially when it comes to denim. Two things are certain, this is definitely a season of firsts and a season of change.

Muted and worn out denim in over-sized, billowy silhouettes pulled perfectly together with a daffy styling aesthetic that only Vivienne Westwood could pull off  was the name of the game for the designers namesake collection–and one change that we love! With stand-alone denim separates ranging from denim jackets to jeans  that can be  integrated into any wardrobe, this usually overly-conceptual line has been the denim surprise of the season thus far. Dark red lipstick and finger wave hairdo are optional, of course!

Like we said in our last round up, AW 2011 is all about color and Dolce & Gabbana embraces this fully giving their collection some definite passion! Tapered, low-slung jeans in a variety of red and grey worn and acid washes created a slouchy silhouette that add an edge to the overall glam look of  multi-color sequins blazers a la Bryan Ferry. Skinny leather suspenders and heavy duty boots finish off the look.  As Style.com puts it, it’s definitely “…glam for a brash, butch new age.”

It’s no secret that most of our denim go-to brands are going through a major denim deficit–at least when it come to the actual use of the textile. After last seasons heavy use of bleached out denim goods, we were excited to see what Dries Van Noten would offer us next. However, we got hardly anything to subside our  denim cravings. But no matter… instead many designers like Van Noten have opted get the classic denim look by way of other materials. Among the beautiful assortment of garments that appear to be denim (even to us at first glance) from shirts to coats, are a pair of actual denim motorcycle pants that unzip from waist to ankle. Though not exactly what we’re used, it’ll suffice.
