You all probably know by now that denim is back in a big way for Spring/Summer 2010. Although designers have been steering away from the staple jeans for the last few seasons and bringing in alternatives such as leggings, beggings (boot/legging hybrid) and jeggings (jean/legging combo), jeans and denim garments were seen everywhere for the new season. The catwalks saw denim either in a really full-on, head-to-toe look, such as at Jeremy Scott, where matching denim shirts and skirts were shown in a bright, light blue or as an accent to a contrasting outfit, giving an eclectic feel, shown at Kenzo, where they mixed an elegant flowing floor-length dress with a wide statement beaded belt and a faded denim jacket, rolled up to the elbows.
The denim was really varied in colour and texture. At Mulberry, although the look was dressier than some of their counterparts in the fact that their jean/jacket combo was teamed with classic tan leather heels and a bowling bag, the denim was faded and quite a dirty shade of blue. At D&G they showed ripped faded jeans and denim fitted shirts with rolled up sleeves, mixed with leather belts and boots for a sexy, cool attitude. In contrast, Stella McCartney showed some light blue soft stone-washed denim in button-down dresses and A-line skirts giving a relaxed 1970’s feel.
