Magic trade show: Denim takes flight for fall
Get ready to channel your inner Amelia Earhart, because denim is decidedly aviator-inspired for fall 2011.
Brands such as 7 for All Mankind and G Star Raw took to the floor of the Mandalay Bay Convention center in Las Vegas on Monday to show their fall lines during the Project trade show (Project is under the Magic trade show umbrella and showcases denim, street wear and contemporary clothing and accessories)
Here, there are plenty of cargo pockets, cropped lengths, slouchy silhouettes and colors like olive, dusty dark purple, burgundy and khaki. Most denim companies are also incorporating plenty of non-denim fabrics such as twill and fleece into their fall collections. Get ready for a lot of twill cropped pants in an array of muted colors.
7 For All Mankind has a style called the Flight Pant and the Amelia pant, both heavily influenced by the vintage aviator look. And G Star Raw has plenty of slouchy flight suit-style pants, but of course done with its edgy aesthetic.
