Get this: Diesel had a runway show and not a single blue jean was included.
"We have a lot of blue denim in Diesel, so it's not necessary to go down this way—everybody knows we have this," Sophia Kokosalaki, Diesel Black Gold's creative director, explained backstage. That's a bold move, but one that made for a compelling show. Kokosalaki subbed dark, dusty colors for the indigo blues, and, for the most part, leather for the denim. The leather pieces emphasized handwork and craftsmanship, whether they were embossed, painted, appliquéd, or tied.
Camel, white and navy were the main colors seen on the runway at Michael Kors' Spring 2011 Collection. These two are my favorite looks. He sure knows how to show off a clean-cut and sophisticated look. Can't get much classier in my opinion.
Preppy and peppy, patterns and color. These are the four words that describe Mr. Hilfiger's Spring 2011 Collection. The clean lines and bright colors created an exuberant vibe for the runway.
Denim, twill, cotton and chunky woolen knits, printed cotton ties instead of silk, a navy tuxedo jacket paired with flat-front chinos, patchwork motifs ran through key items from a paneled pair of jeans to a smart toggle jacket with corduroy lining. This may have been a Spring collection, but there was a heft to the fabrics and fits that felt true to the dapper outdoors-man Muytjens sees as his customer.
