music from the fashion show
dean & dan caten : we were working on a new construction for our classic collection, and these jackets were actually made in napoli, they\'re completely unlined, with no structure, no shoulder pads, so they\'re light, they become part of you, that sort of started the ball rolling for theme, the parts were getting wider, we were double breasting them, so we created jackets and coats, and all around this thing, it had this edge to it, so we took that to paris in a jazz nightclub in the 40s, it evolved and evolved and then we threw some denim in there, some colour in there, always contrasting with the same shape and bringing it up to date and making different options and alternatives.
100% black casting, we felt that the black people mostly wore more sensual , they were going to feel the music, it\'s about jazz singing, it\'s about jazz music, they had a lot of soul and a lot of rhythm and i think they give a lot to clubs. they hear the music, they\'re walking to the music, they\'re feeling it, their clothes give them a sexy element.
