{David Bitton – printed studded denim jacket}

In this season’s last editorial about Coterie, I decided to pay special attention to prints and other interesting features, like coating and colorblocks, as these will play a big part in most summer 2013 collections. The one that most turned my head was that printed denim jacket above with gold studs – all those fashion elements in one jacket only LOL!!: print, cropped, and studded – well done, David Bitton.

There was a lot of leather and coated, but the most impressive leather jeans I found were the ones from Cotte d’Armes. They were about the only leather jeans not made of stretch leather or – oh no please no – thin stretchy lamb leather – why? Lamb leather jeans stretch from the moment you pull them up. OK, so you can wash them “back to their original size”, but it is kinda painful. I so prefer, the REAL leather, and this is what Cotte has decided to go with. A slouchier, but still skinny motorcycle style leather jean, with a thick cord belt at the waist and enough room for us even to take a deep breath! Thank you, Clarence Ruth, Mr.Cotte d’Armes.
