DJPremium is very excited about General Idea‘s own Korean designer Bumsuk Choi as he presented the Fall / Winter 2014 collection last week at Pier 59 during New York Fashion Week.
The show revealed that the brand has taken a darker turn from the metallics and color blocking we saw in SS14. Fall moved towards a more tonal color palette with a bad-ass edge. General Idea’s street-wear DNA emerged on the runway with the paneling, extended hems, and dropped shoulders we have come to love.

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.

This amazing William Rast motorcycle jacket came in our office last week and I immediately fell in love. The mix of leather and twill make for a very edgy yet relaxed feel. You can dress it up like a rocker chick with a fun party dress and heels, or relax the look with skinny jeans, a loose neutral top, and dark wedges. When I styled this jacket, I went with a more casual look and paired the jacket with Siwy skinny jeans with a gray wash, a baggy tee by Sauce, and fun caged wedge heels. Check out how to transform this jacket from the runway, to REALway:
