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?
Jonny Johansson thought it was about time to get down to business, or at least down to the business tailoring clothes. Acne has been the label for the effortless types, the creators and the fun-lovers and now, apparently, for the daring business types!
Who knows what Johansson was really thinking but the tailoring was undoubtedly new and refreshing (that along with string of trousers with the not-so-subtle pops of color). The design team at Acne accomplished a clear, youthful collection which has become expected of the house.
While most of the clarity came from the precision of the tailoring, all of the youthful essence drew from the overcoats, knits and oxfords too big for the models adding an innocence to the collection, for balance.

Leighton Meester horsing around for the Missoni s/s 2011 campaign
There’s nothing that can make Missoni knits better than the face of Gossip Girl Leighton Meester. The style star has been spotted on red carpets and front rows around the world, and now she’s the new face for Missoni!
In the most recent campaign, shot by Jeurgen Teller, Meester joined forces with Joan Burstein and Lorra Teller. The new campaign is working to redefine what customers expect from the brand. The collection is not just for models, but for all the bohemians out there willing to take a chance with their widely popular, psychedellic knits!

Thankfully in San Diego it’s sunny and warm, whichis making me think of my new spring wardrobe! Back in September, the runways at fashion week were filled with bright colors mixed together in unfamiliar ways. It was an eye opener for what’s to come for Spring and I’m too excited to start sporting this look. Designers such as Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Prada are loving the color blocking trend as well. Here are the Spring 2011 Ad campaigns that feature the color blocking trend to give you more inspiration. Think out of the box and have fun with color this Spring!
