Our Favorite Looks From Diesel Black Gold FW14


New York Fashion Week wrapped up on Thursday, ending another frantic season of high fashion and style inspiration for NYC. One show we always look forward to is Diesel Black Gold, for the brand’s edgy-yet-classic take on streetwear for men and women. This season was full of texture and strong silhouettes. We loved the mirrored embellishments, high collar coats, sheer tailored tops and party dresses. See our favorite 9 looks below.

Trend Alert! Raw Edge Denim


Refinery29 rounded up this season’s most noteworthy trends from New York Fashion Week, including raw edge denim. Whether showcased on the hem of a mid-length skirt or a more obvious shoulder cut-out, this design detail adds an instant layer of ’90s grunge to the look—and based on the rest of the trends we saw, we wouldn’t be surprised if come spring, the ’90s are making a high fashion comeback. Will you be sporting denim fringe?

Garance Doré Loves MiH’s Patchwork Jeans… And So Do We


Garance Doré is singing the aesthetic praise of MiH Jeans’ color block skinny jeans this week on her blog, and we couldn’t agree more. The chic-yet-playful take on average denim is basic, but interesting enough to take a regular sweater-and-jeans outfit to the next level. Patchwork jeans and two-toned jeans are a huge trend for spring, so prep your closet. Add some metallic jewelry and a pair of killer heels, and you’ve got yourself a perfect NYFW look. Which, by the way, is juuuust around the corner…

Models Off Duty Who Wear Denim During #NYFW


Is it any surprise that top fashion models love to wear denim? You’ve seen New York Fashion Week models saunter down the catwalk in next year’s most exciting new threads.  But, between shows, what do these panther-prowling, platform trotting muses’ preferred go-to wardrobe basic?  An acid-bleached denim jacket?  Ombré skinny jeans?  Sure, why not!  And don’t you just want to hate them for always looking good, off duty or not!  Check out these street style photos via Refinery29 and Harper’s Bazaar in which NYFW Spring-Summer 2013 models off duty are snapped in their personally-styled outfit of the day.

Fail-Proof: Denim x Knit Top x Jacket Combo


No time to fuss over what you’re going to wear today? Try this super easy (and very chic) combination that’s perfect for fall. It’s the fail-proof denim x knit top x jacket equation, and it always =  awesome.

Start with your favorite pair of jeans (we love a relaxed fit, perhaps with a bit of distressing, but skinny works too). For fall, we’ll start out with dark wash jeans. Add a scoop neck knit top, tucked in either fully with a belt or just half-tucked in the front. Over this, throw a soft tailored blazer and cuff the sleeves. Add some chic flats, and you’re out the door!

We spotted two on-trend ladies during NYFW who have this look down to a science.

Denim Street Style Straight From NYFW


Nothing like inspiration from the New York’s twice-a-year fashion holiday! We’re in the midst of New York Fashion Week, and from Lincoln Center to Milk Studios, this style-obsessed city is positively crawling with amazing outfits. We snagged a few of our favorite snaps of denim street style from Oracle Fox to show you what we mean.

Jewel Tone Jeans & Classic Cool At CLOSED Fall 2012


Delayed but worth the wait: our report from the CLOSED FW’12 preview/presentation! It was our very last event during NYFW, winding down the whirl-wind week in the dimly lit lounge of the Bowery Hotel. We sipped whiskey sours and saw the collection modeled one ensemble at a time (on models who mingled and posed in a space open to everyone/anyone to jump in for a quick portrait). We were ecstatic to see a saturated cerulean blue jeans in the men’s collection, alongside an impeccably clean-cut denim workshirt, colored cords, and some two-toned knitwear that no man couldn’t find a way to work into his look.

The women’s collection was minimalist-preppy, with texture applied in maroon stripes and metallic embroidered polka-dot. We fawned over an elegant every-day layered one-piece tank top (uncomplicated despite its structure) and subtle tuxedo stripe chinos—a trend we were having a hard time loving until we saw the CLOSED adaptation. We posted about the full collection yesterday, so have a look if you missed it. Bottom line? This collection is clean, cool, and rich. Three things you can’t do fall without.

Public School FW’12: The Essential Brooklyn Wardrobe #nyfw


Public School FW’12 at Milk Studios was a real trip. They basically nailed every menswear trend we love right now, and then added in uber-wide brimmed hats that made the guys look like patron saints of bad-ass. Tailored blazers and leather jackets stood effortlessly next to varsity-style Japanese biker gang zip-up’s and preppy knit cardigans. Cuffed raw jeans were clean and crisp next to tailored wool slacks and (for good measure) a kilt. We couldn’t help but feel that the sum of all these elements added up to the essentials for the hippest dressers in Brooklyn right now. Lucky for Public School, this appeal is universal.

Denim To Covet From 7 Fashion Brands at #NYFW Fall 2012


For New York Fashion Week, we pulled together seven fashion brands that drove denim to new levels and offered inspiration on what should be made in denim.  We were so in love with some pieces that were not quite denim, that we threw those photos in for your ogling.  We think you’ll forgive us.

Band of Outsiders—We’ve known for a while that the fashion houses have been fixated on Great Depression and Dustbowl era fashion, and there’s still a bit of this here, but with a mix of glam and luxury fabrics (we count suede and fur collars), there’s a sense that the sun-kissed models in workwear-inspired denim jumpsuits and white-collar attire, offers hope that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.  Images via Style.com.

-


Diesel Black Gold—From red to blue denim, not only has Diesel gone gaga over color, they’ve gone Jackson Pollock with their side-tie pants and cropped jeans.  With a definite homage to an 80′s fashion trend, the paint splashes and printed jeans serve as a contradiction to their progressive leatherwear.  We couldn’t escape the sense of a Mad Max meets Highlander effect when everything was pulled together.  Images via Style.com.

Gilded Age Fall-Winter 2012 brings a sophisticated version of motorcycle culture.

Nicholas K—Designers Nicholas and Christopher Kunz have made her collection all about draping and furthering the Depression era vibe utilizing desert hues: models wore flapper wigs and Silent Film cosmetic work; Western touches were seen throughout.  Hints of denim made its way in, including a hooded denim shirt and an homage to the denim jacket.  Images via Mercedes Benz Fashion Week online.

-



Rebecca Minkoff—Who knew she was also an apparel designer?  Known largely for her handbags, long-time followers have looked forward to her return to clothing design, her first passion.  We think her bright legging pants may as well segue into denim leggings.  Her apparel debut at New York Fashion Week featuring an opening performance by Theophilus London, made a big splash.  Images via Style.com.

-

Concept Korea (V)—In an effort to bring visibility to South Korea’s top fashion labels, this collective was born.  In it’s second year at NYFW, Concept features five top Korean labels.  Most notably, the design duo Steve Jung and Yoni Pai (of the brand Steve J & Yoni P) with collaborations between Topshop and 10 Corso Como (Seoul) under their belt, they make denim part of their repertoire. Images via WWD and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week online.

-


Kelly Wearstler—As if to defy anybody who had any reservations about 80s fashions, this brand has committed wholeheartedly to the styling of acid wash jeans and stirrup leggings.  Even if the ultra high-waisted acid wash zipper skirts aren’t your thing, you might just have a crush on the jackets.  Images via Style.com.
