High Horizon

THE LONG AND OFTEN FRUITLESS SEARCH FOR THE ODD VINTAGE HIGH-WAISTED PANT IS OVER AT LAST, AS DESIGNERS HAVE EMBRACED THIS FIGURE FLATTERING CUT INTO THEIR READY TO WEAR COLLECTIONS THIS FALL, BRINGING THE LOOK OUT OF THE HIGH-END REALM AND TO THE HUNGRY MASSES. 

Across the runways of Carven and Isabel Marant, we spotted an abundance of high-waisted looks. And Marant, for one, is sure to set off another high-street craze with her take on the high-rise jean, which she embellished with rows of ornamental buttons and extended to make them super-high with corset-like, yet loose, bands of denim gently caressed by slim belts. Carven presents us with a more classic and less punkie take on the high-rise cut. But far from plain, he lets his models turn heads with his trousers that are made in shades of tantalizing red and blue as well as delicious patterns. Roberto Cavalli and Sonia Rykiel showcase looks that are reminiscent of the Marlene Dietrich signature sailor pant. With a wider leg and decorative buttons flanking the high waist, these styles are elegant and yet slightly rebellious, still emanating an element of the provocative reference to cross-dressing that made this look so daring when it first came about in the late 20’s. We, for one, are very exited that this flattering look is making a big comeback!
