Kate Mara in Double Denim at Louis Vuitton


Fashion Week has wound down on a global scale, and we’re kind of glad it has (refreshing Style.com every 5 minutes is exhausting). But we’re willing to backtrack to Paris Fashion Week for a moment to appreciate Kate Mara of House of Cards‘ chic denim-on-denim ensemble at the Louis Vuitton show. Reports The Cut:

“The actress kept her outfit casual and her palette monochrome, pairing her denim tank dress with a matching jean jacket and indigo clutch. She finished off the all-denim look with a pair of ubiquitous snakeskin heels — suggesting that she may not be quite the brazen risk-taker that her House of Cards character makes her out to be.”

15 Denim Standouts From The Menswear Fashion Shows, Fall 2012


New York Fashion Week may be in full swing,  but we didn’t want to blow through the week without acknowledging the menswear fashion shows in Europe.  Decidedly more subdued this time around, not to say there weren’t theatrics in play (Jean Paul Gaulter and Ann Demeulemeester notwithstanding) nor performance art (check out Thom Browne’s presentation), many brands incorporated denim into their Fall-Winter 2012 menswear collections while continuing to reach far back to source 300 years of fashion.

Agnes B FW2012: sleep jeans serve as a canvas for their genre-eclectic collection.
Agnès B
infused denim into its Fall 2012 collection, which started off as a predictable menswear show, until it took a sharp turn towards androgyny with the introduction of a denim wrap skirt and tunic silhouettes which softened the male silhouette against cuffed, loose-fit jeans.   Some of the models were styled with ballet flats, which was not lost on us.

Balmain Fall 2012: still rock 'n' roll and military, but less gritty.
Olivier Rousteing isn’t trying to rock the boat too much at Balmain, after stepping in for Christophe Decarnin.  As you can see, jeans for men continue to be biker-chic, while the rest of the collection invokes the aristocracy of the Napoleonic era.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall-Winter 2012 continues to source from the past to reinvent dapper style.

Your Milk Man or Soda Jerk is reincarnated, thanks to Dolce & Gabbana‘s continued retro motif, juxtaposing a bit of Dandy style with some Blue Collar appeal.  Heavily whiskered jeans with a deep cuff signals a changing of the guard: the inseams and the rise are going up.
Dries Van Noten FW2012: efforts made to work with denim in graphics and color processes.

Dries Van Noten may be showing his appreciation for Dutch master painters (though he, himself, is Belgian): a warm orange jean is both trendy and classic-looking against the collection’s wild and experimental takes on the classic denim jackets. Evidently, the brand is not afraid to work outside the box.
Dsquared2 Fall-Winter 2012: a continued experiment in denim from top to bottom.

Dsquared2 has moved out of the Old West and continues to re-work denim in its various forms: a classic denim jacket holds metal appliques on its sleeves; drop-waist, contrast fabric waistband jeans are becoming the brand’s signature look, and an Argyle-washed chambray shirt was a creative turn and proof that the brand has placed a considerable amount of investment into denim fashion.

Men’s Fashion Week Highlight: Mugler Spring Summer 2012


One of our favorite collections to come out of Paris Men’s Fashion Week this time around is that of Mugler. We’re totally digging the overall 80s references:  pastel shades, strong neon colors like bright highlighter green, tons of lurex and windbreaker details, and some killer stone washed denim looks to point out a few. With a title like Brothers of Arcadia, huge metallic jewelry resembling armor, and the overall futuristic tone of it all we’re definitely getting a futuristic gladiator feel. With this marking the brands mere sophomore collection, needless to say we’ll totally be keeping an eye out.

April 77 Throws Paris Fashion Week Party


apr77-parisfashionweekparty

 

Gosh I wish I were in Paris right now, having the time of my life with all the stylish people!  It must be a feast for the eyes to see Parisians and fashionphiles strutting their stuff on and off the runway.  Denim and record label April 77 didn’t miss a beat when they decided to throw their own party in honor of Paris Fashion Week.  I wonder if we’ll see their signature melancholy-stoic models — who look like they went to the Byzantine-Gustav Klimt school of modelling — hanging around the party, looking like they don’t care about how cool they are to be in the company of April 77.
