15 Denim Designers Who Wore Jeans at Fashion Week


Do you ever wonder what designers wear back stage at fashion shows?   We scoured through the recent spring-summer 2012 fashion shows to see who should, might and could rock a pair of jeans, even under intense stress and poorly-ventilated conditions.  One of the first names who came to mind were Rick Owens, Rad Hourani, Robert Geller, Frida Giannini (Gucci) and Sharon Wauchob (Edun); but sadly, they did not deliver.  Mind you, most designers pop their heads out for only a few seconds before running back from whence they came.  However, the photogs were able to capture these 15 designers who chose to take a bow in jeans.  Who do you think rocked their look?




We were delighted to see Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), who looked more like a model himself wearing drop-crotch jeans; Kaiser Karl wearing wrinkled coated jeans; Olivier Theyskens (Theyskens’ Theory) sporting bleached denim shorts; and Sophia Kokosalaki—who wore saturated jeans—represented Diesel’s denim DNA even though her Diesel Black Gold collection offered nary a patch of denim to tide us over.

Behind the Scenes at Acne Womenswear Resort 2012


Acne‘s Jonny Johansson is always thinking outside of the box, even when he puts his models in it. The video below takes you behind the scenes at Acne’s Womenswear Resort 2012 fashion show, featuring a giant black frame which looks a bit like an enormous iPad screen (yes, our view is now distorted by iDevices). Models stream through this giant box which serves as the focal point of the fashion show. A minimalist setting complete with pastel blue runways, Acne’s Womenswear Resort 2012 fashion show featured some yummy Otterpop pastels and popcicle orange and yellow against its requisite neutrals. With shredded denim shorts, figure-hugging skirts and even a jeans jacket in the mix, styled with tousled and teased-hair models, everything looks very über chic Stockholm street style.

Acne Studios continues to churn out interesting collections with the goal of not following what’s going on in the rest of Europe. Acne Creative Director Jonny Johannsson provides some insight into this collection. If you watch carefully, Johansson is interviewed during the hectic fashion show set-up. Were they trying to show off his set, or did he simply get in the way? At any rate, they put Jonny in a box, which is so unlike his goals at Acne.
