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.
