The Contemporary Vintage story is very much about denim. Washed, treated, ripped, reconstructed, possibly paired with faux leather, the fabric ups the glam ante. All-time favourites get a great rethinking, as in the parka with pink faux fur lining, the army bomber with interesting relief effects, the biker jacket in a faux leather & fleece mix. D-signer talks about setting cool urban style day & night. Neoprene, nylon, thermo-welding, bold colour, graphics and technically advanced prints identify top pieces, while fluid lines and fabrics in shades of black and grey do the same for bottoms. For evening there’s a fab array of glitter, iridescence, sequin embroidery, so defining sweatshirts and bombers with all over patterns or foil, flock, digital, photographic prints. Back to Black celebrates the darkest of hues by presenting tailored pants with pure white sidebands, bombers in a loop-stitch knit, sleeveless tuxedos with fine studding on faux leather collar. Plus resin-coated biker jackets, faux leather maxi skirts, digital print T-shirts.
As for Essential, clean design in shades of blue, grey and white offset by perfectly bright notes gives definition to latest-generation basics. Jersey, denim and nylon complete the picture, along with the new Replay logo graphics and the colourful down-free reversible puffers.
