FASHIONWEEK Spring 2007: Howdy, Pardner! Diamonds & Denim at Manuel Prove that Jeans Belong on the Catwalk & the Red Carpet. (Shoes & Shirt Optional.) FASHIONTRIBES & FASHION BLOG
Summary: How to stand out at Fashionweek: Take over the main tent (the largest runway show venue of the three at Bryant Park), crank up the rock ‘n roll, and send out artfully ripped & embellished denim topped by a snazzy, shimmery python - with bare feet! In some cases, no shirt was required as an oiled up pieced of eyecandy manmeat sauntered down the catwalk in jeans only. Single-named Nashville couturier Manuel – who has dressed everyone from Dolly Parton to putting Johnny Cash in black – is now working with his son, Manuel Jr. And they know for denim, much of it heavily encrusted and ripped, baggy in just the right way, and in zippered dresses. Leather dusters also swaggered out, as well as high-waisted shorts paired with a ruffled floral chiffon blouse, and an eyecatching cutaway morning coat in pristine white.
Color Palette: denim, tobacco & dark brown leather, black, white, floral chiffon
Textures & Details: embellished & ripped denim, silvery python, floral chiffon, leather
Key Looks: silvery python black with embellished & artfully ripped boycut jeans; black satin bustier cocktail dress with tiered black ruffle skirt; white cutaway morning coat with jeans; floral chiffon ruffle blouse with high waisted shorts
