BIG STAR has put together a fall – winter collection comprising two, distinctly different lines. College is a warmer continuation of a very well received line inspired by US college style. Vintage makes its first appearance under the BIG STAR brand name and constitutes a return to the most classic, original jeans models.
The College line primarily features sporting cuts and toned down colour schemes – classic BIG STAR looks. The line favours blacks, greys and whites, and is sparsely dotted with red and claret accents. Prints and emblems gave way to minimalist shapes and uniform patterns. Sweatshirts and sweaters dyed using the ombre technique, where the colours become progressively less intense are an exception and a new addition to this line. Slim and slim-fit jeans featuring stretch, emphasise natural figures. A large selection of winter jackets is a distinctive element of the College line. Flight jackets will be ideal for the intermediary period with a zip and a high collar. The brand’s designers offer bulky jackets with large, fur covered hoods for those really frosty days. And fans of traditional “puffer” jackets will not be left wanting with a plethora of quilted jackets, coats and vests to choose from.
The Vintage line represents a great return of classic jeans cuts. Straight legs, thicker denim in indigo or blue jeans constitute direct references to the beginnings of American farmers’ jeans’ history. We are moving away from the destroyed style and large, frayed holes. For the distressed look – only natural, seemingly from multiple washing cycles. The American outback inspiration is also seen in the large selection of chequered shirts – cotton, flannel, featuring a straight, loose cut, not tapered at the waist. The Vintage line also includes a new addition to the fall – winter 2016/17 collection – the Denim Look, or fabric which looks like denim. It makes it possible to create contrasting combinations of raw vintage jeans with a soft material which only imitates denim. The fabric based denim look will feature in both ladies’ as well as men’s collections.
