During the Spring 2011 runway shows, there were a lot of brighter colors, prints, pastels, and mix-matched textures. Diesel Black & Gold has always been known for their dark denim, but this time around they took a different route. Sophia Kokosalaki–creative director of the brand– explained, “We have a lot of blue denim in Diesel, so it’s not necessary to go down this way—everybody knows we have this” (Style.com). She always said the color palette they used were inspired by the desert. The wide variety of neutrals, soft greens, peaches, and browns complement each other very well. Their runway looks included a lot of denim of course, but instead they used lighter washes mixed with lighter colored jackets, and even leather pieces. Overall, the new Spring 2011 collection encompasses lighter hues that are more suitable for spring wear. Men, invest in lighter shades of denim like light gray, khaki, and olive green. Pair these jeans with colored leather jackets, henley tees, collared shirts, and vests for the layering technique. Make sure to keep the colors in the same color family.

No statement GQ makes about menswear is taken lightly. So there should be surprised at our excitement after GQ posted their “Guide to Denim Right Now” ( http://t.co/STjaTCq ), where five of DJP’s top-selling brands snatched trophies.
We’re doing something right!
The collab has a high emphasis on geometry and color–two of McQueen specialties–and the forward-thinking practicality of these shoes make them a must for anyone seeking to up the ante on their shoe game.
These shoes are truly works of art!
It seems like the fashion industry has just about washed its hands with the waif-like male models from Heidi Slimane’s reign. The March 2011 cover of Details magazine, featuring Sean O’pry, Noah Mills, Arthur Kulkov proved that it’s once again okay to be masculine.
Male models aside, the shoot’s emphasis on denim caught our attention! It reminded us why we appreciate so much the art of aging denim. With brands like PRPS, Cult of Individuality, True Religion, Little Brooklyn, and many more, how can you not love a perfectly worn in pair of jeans?

Let me fast forward into time to show you a quick preview of what’s to come for Fall 2011 fashion. One of our favorite brands on DJPremium, Diesel, just had their Fall 2011 fashion show. Known for their well structured leather pieces and beautifully tailored dresses, Diesel Black Gold surely didn’t disappoint this time around! The collection had a beautiful color palette of maroon, beige, light pink, olive green, and black. As Fashionista said in their review, “The pieces were meant to look as if they had come to life out of a sepia photograph.” There were references of Victorian fashion through key pieces such as the silk collared blouses, fitted blazers, leather fitted and flared pants, and intricate prints to take you back in time. Can’t get enough? Take a look at the full collection here.
When catching up with our long-time friend and fashion expert Claire of The Fashion Bomb Daily we couldn’t help but notice how fresh her look was.
While we tend to live in jeggings for convenience and comfort, Claire reminded us just how fabulous wide-leg jeans can be–not to mention how important they’ll be in spring with the oncoming 70s revival.
Nothing complements dope denim more than the perfect pair of kicks, and vise-versa. So, it comes as no surprise that Supra, the skater brand that changed footwear design since its 2006 debut, looks undeniably superior when paired with Japanese denim tycoon Edwin Jeans.
Check out the two together in a rather preppy editorial in Attitude Magazine!
Here at DJP we pay just as much attention to the pieces in our favorite designers’ closets as what looks they put out on the runway. Let’s face it, if someone can’t dress themselves how are they going to be to dress anyone else?
Do you approve?
