Amsterdam Denim Days 2014, Kingpins show

Finally Amsterdam has it’s own Denim event. And what an event it is! First the pro’s meet two days at the Kingpins show at the Gashouder in Amsterdam. At this trade-show Ddsigners, manufacturers and all kinds of denim-pro’s see the latest developments in fabric, finishing and production plus they will hear the latest trends from WGSN and Invista. It’s the first time Kingpins hits Amsterdam, but we cannot imagine it will be the last time in the denim-capital of Europe.

Trend Report SS2011: the new denim

Wearing denim to a cocktail event might have been a no go for years, now you can look as chic in your jeans as you will in your LBD. ‘Cause the new denim is more sophisticated and classy then ever. Derek Lam, Stella McCartney and Dries van Noten showed some perfect examples of that. No skinny jeans there, but long, wide legged pants (and denim jackets, skirts, dresses and pants too!) So whatever event your attending; in this new denim you’ll look fabulous 7 days a week.

Apart from the ‘chic denim’ at Balmain we saw some rough looking examples for the punk/rock ‘n roll ladies as well. Yet we suppose wearing it classic like McCartney is the way to go.

G-Star Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2010

Since Liv Tyler is the face of G-star’s new campaign she, of course, had to attend the label’s fashion show. But she wasn’t the only celeb that turned up. Kelly Osbourne, Natasha Bedingfield and Peaches Geldof were there too to watch the most colorful G-star collection ever.

Though we normally see several different shades of denim, this time there were lots of colors. The bright yellow, green and blue surely made the collection look like fun.

A male model in a thick yellow coat and a matching yellow hat looked like a fireman who just stepped out of a cartoon. And on all of the jackets cheerful bright-colored contours of pockets were clearly visible.

With items like overalls, colored hats and gloves and checked pants it was clear the Dutch denim label didn’t take itself too seriously this time.

Naturally all crazy and oversized items were combined with some good denim designs. Pants, shirts, overalls and shorts were presented in different hues of blue.

And although G-star is known as a denim label, denim didn’t seem the most important aspect of the collection as it was overshadowed by all the color-blocking outfits.
