Women's spring 2011 fashion trends. Biker chic.

Trends begin, they evolve, and they fade or simply become a classic. Skinny jeans became a classic, the military fashion trend cannot. So as 2011's fashion trends come to fruition, as we move fully into a new decade, and as military fashion becomes as drawn out as the war that inspired it, what becomes of the military influences that have helped keep the likes of Balmain and Burberry in fashionisers' conscience? What replaces it?

The answer may lie in a trend that has been around for some time, but a trend that hasn't been able to be much more than a blip on the radar while in the shadow of military fashion. What is the trend? Biker chic.

Modern Tendency. All new - well forgotten old.

GAP - the fashion brand - has presented a new collection of denim which is a transformed version of the collection of 1969.

Many designers were working on the new version of the collection. Their primary goal was to create convenient and qualitative clothes from denim. They had to be made in classical style but adapted for a modern fashion.
As a result we have skinny jeans, denim boots from Pierre Hardy, tops and hats from Albertus Swanepoel.
«Developing the collection, we thought about women's wishes. Every woman wants to feel herself sexy in our clothes, but for men comfort is very important, - said Patrick Robertson the main designer GAP. - for this reason all our models perfectly underline a figure, but thus they are very comfortable».
The collection will go on sale in August of this year.
