Spring 2010 Page 1
Ah bare leg! We love the feeling after a season of itchy tights and confining denim to set our skin free with the warm springtime air. But unfortunately, this coming spring, designers have other ideas in mind for us.
Fashion in the 1970s was a response to the forced futurism of the 1960s. It’s not uncanny that a parallel is drawn between then and now, especially as stores are stocking up on their spring inventory that echoes the decade of free love and youth expression. Designers today may be reacting to other obstacles –- high manufacturing and shipping costs or the many show seasons in any given year perhaps -– but a call to this rebellious decade is clearly the focal point for many Spring 2010 collections.
Why stop after one? For the second season in a row, Georgia May Jagger, daughter of Rolling Stone Mick and fashion icon Jerry Hall, will be the face of Hudson Jeans.
