We wanted to share our denim highlights from the recent Milan Runways:

Vivienne Westwood has been really delving into denim over the last few seasons – her collaboration with Lee jeans has cemented this interest and her denim offerings go from strength to strength. This season sees her re-visit her almost signature dropped crotch loose fit in various casts and colors and also some bold, sun-bleached look laundries that look fresh and new. We also love this quilted denim jacket with cord collar – channeling the outdoors chic trend on the rise in menswear. For the full show, click here

The D+G boys presented a collection full of rainbow-colored off-beat pastels for F/W 11. Inspired by youthful Americana throughout the years, elements like Coca Cola graphics, Mickey Mouse motifs, Members Only-influenced jackets and high-top sneakers supported a collection of dropped-crotch jeans in dusty worker blues and sun-bleached corals. We especially love the bright yellow sheepskin lined trucker. for the full show, click here

A runway consisting of a cave, working snow machines, a grimy press release peppered with phrases like “black creek bikers” and “grunge workers”, and an orchestral blast of Nirvana set the scene for the Amish-Rebel look that informed Dean and Dan Caten’s F/W 11 Dsquared2 collection. Dark and rugged low-slung jeans were stained and heavily laundered and a strong focus on the classic trucker jacket and western shirt was evident. For the full show, click here

The Dolce and Gabbana main line offering was significantly darker than its younger D+G collection but denim was still of utmost importance to the show. Again, the dropped-crotch carrot fit was key, with military and cargo inspired multi-pocket details in laundered and color-blocked applications. The show also had a tough, skinhead-meets-outdoors attitude, with bold laundries in blacks, greys and reds dominating the color palette. for the full show, click here
