Double denim and worn washes

Spring 11

Denim brands pushed the head-to-toe denim trend, with bleached chambray shirts and shirt dresses reminiscent of 1980s styles as well as fitted denim playsuits, denim bustiers and waistcoats that nodded to Ralph Lauren’s spring 10 range. There was also a sizable smattering of dungarees and drop-crotch jeans styles, which ranged from the full-on denim harem pant to subtler, more wearable cuts that combined the low-slung crotch with chino-style pleats. For women, there were still plenty of skinny jeans on offer, but slim-cut boyfriend jeans also featured heavily. For men, there was a move away from skinny cuts towards a looser silhouette. Most denim came in blue but pale greys, clay-baked browns and bleached-out nearly whites also had a strong presence. Generally the emphasis was on finish and wash, where lasering and scraping were used to produce an authentic distressed workwear look.
