Where Do You Stand On Two-Tone Pants?

-------

Just when we’d gotten used to brightly colored pants (see the Spring collections of Jil Sander, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, and, don’t forget, Zara), New York designers like Derek Lam and Phillip Lim went and upped the ante for Fall, parading trousers in not one but two tones down the runways. At first, we were, ahem, divided, but they’re really growing on us now. Why? Well, let Prabal Gurung make the case. According to the designer, who showed a silver and black pair for Fall (left) and similarly flattering ones in seasons past, “Two-tone pants, particularly those with a curved seam, really elongate and make the leg appear slimmer.” The trend continued apace across the pond at Chloé and Celine. We even spied model Jessica Stam working the look for a day of go-sees in Milan, and we’ve got to agree with Gurung—her legs really do look a mile long.

    I had brown, leather pants, which were too tight, so I decided to insert on the sides bars of black leather. Along the seams I sewed a lot of small gold buttons. They look fantastic and they really lengthen the legs. aferanaszyjnikowa.blogspot.com

    On a personal level I will not be succumbing to this trend. I don’t think they’re flattering and on a professional level as a high street buyer I also don’t think they’re that commercial for volume retail.
