Denim con­tin­ues to be a win­ner in Au­tumn/ Win­ter 2016

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STYLE -

ALTHOUGH fall is the per­fect time to re­fresh our wardrobes, let's not for­get that some pieces are time­less.

Denim, which con­tin­ues to be on trend this sea­son in both cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories, is a case in point. Jeans are cool and time­less, no ques­tion. But for Au­tumn/ Win­ter 2016, de­sign­ers and big- name brands have de­cided to take denim in an un­ex­pected di­rec­tion ei­ther by com­bin­ing it with other fab­rics such as tweed, or us­ing it for un­usual pieces such as long coats.

Here’s a re­view of the denim cre­ations seen at the lat­est cat­walk shows.

Washed- out denim

Some brands only had a few denim pieces in their lat­est col­lec­tion, while others went for it in a big way.

At Miu Miu, denim was ev­ery­where, used for shirts dec­o­rated with badges, pearls or lace, as well as for long skirts, jack­ets and light ex­tra- long coats.

To a lesser ex­tent, Paul and Joe and Stella McCart­ney also chose to hon­our this fash­ion peren­nial.

The for­mer used it for trousers and jack­ets in a very mas­cu­line style, whereas the lat­ter chose it in washed- out form for a but­ton- down dress and an XXL jacket worn like a coat.

A few denim pieces were fea­tured in the fall col­lec­tions of other brands such as Roberto Cavalli ( trousers, jack­ets and shirts with a plung­ing neck­line), and Bluma­rine ( plain or print trousers).

Denim a la Chanel

Chanel sur­prised many at its Parisian show by un­veil­ing a lot of pieces fea­tur­ing denim as it is not a fab­ric the brand nor­mally uses.

But this sea­son, Karl Lager­feld de­cided to bring denim into the 21st cen­tury by com­bin­ing it with pink fuch­sia tweed.

At Chanel's show, denim had never looked so smart, find­ing its way into tai­lored jack­ets, bags, hats and gloves, and com­bined with tweed, silk, em­broi­dery and pearls.

The col­lec­tion was an­chored in the fash­ion house's DNA, but had a fresh, mod­ern feel with touches of sports­wear. – AFP Re­laxnews
