Oh guys, I’m psyched. So psyched. 7FAM has taken a really beautiful direction with this collection. It’s a bit edgy, a little risky (I suppose) and I think it pays off beautifully. Whenever I see a line where I want to have almost every piece, I know we’re in a good position.
For fall 2010, 7 For All Mankind’s women’s collection channels history’s daring darlings – those iconic risk takers who changed the world while still capturing the essence of femininity. Unexpected details such as deep indigo denim with a black weft, or crystals and studs peeking out of a deconstructed back pocket, create novelty and surprise that is at once bold and subtle.
The denim assortment is brought beyond basic with stunning new washes characterized by rich Black and Blue tones. These innovative shades vary from deep midnight to a subtle black-cast distressed blue, providing both clean washes and more heavily washed down shades of indigo with unique depth and a modern appeal. In Deep Blue Black, The Trouser (a brand new fit for the season) offers a 4-pocket trouser fit that hugs the body while maintaining a sophisticated, wide-leg silhouette.
7 For All Mankind has extended its expertise in fit, finish, and silhouette to a wide array of fabrics this season. This Non-Denim Revival sees the introduction of the popular The Skinny in a buttery twill version. Also available is an assortment of corduroy and cargo styles that feel incredibly fresh. The Double Knit group has been expanded to include a selection of new legging silhouettes, jackets, and dresses. Touches of leather provide visual interest and add emotion.
Menswear-inspired pieces are updated with details that offer a distinctly feminine feel that is Tailor Made for the 7 For All Mankind woman. A clean, tailored sportswear aesthetic is achieved through details such as pleats, tab-front closures, and narrow waistbands. The Rumble Jacket, in super soft washed leather, is a cleverly fitted tuxedo jacket that perfectly exemplifies the season’s chic sportswear influence.

I’m in love. The denim jacket is so amazingly cut, the cutout jeans are just to die for and while this collection isn’t an everyday one, it is something that stands out and looks amazing. I’m not sure how I feel about the looser boyfriend-style trouser, but there are so many hits that one miss can be overlooked. Click on the thumbnails to see all the shots.
