Up until the Boss by Hugo Boss show at Paris Menswear in January, I'd always thought of the label as too big, too old and too unrelatable for me - the sort of thing 90s muscly guys would wear. The January offering began to change my mind but the show last week turned me 180. I would have worn every piece. So I was pretty excited heading to Boss Orange last night - not only because it was the highest profile show of the week but because I wanted to see what the label's younger, scruffier label had to show for itself. Boss Orange designer Eyan Allen was feeling denim this season, lots of denim. Double denim, denim overalls, denim jackets, denim tuxedo shirts, denim coloured blazers... you get the idea. It worked a charm but I had to draw the line at a full denim trench. Some things are better left unchanged. My favourites on the boys (surprise surprise) were the pleated, rolled, light cotton denim pants paired with laundered chambray shirts. For girls I was really into the maxi skirts teamed with high top sneakers.
I LIKE YOU!
