Artistix's black and white splattered print collection also featured turn ups on the dungarees and other painter style inspired pieces. Andy Hilfiger (brother of Tommy) teamed up with artist Greg Polisseni to create this quasi Pollock effect.

Garcia Velez’s ‘construction versus deconstruction’ collection had exposed seams on shortened pants, mimicking turn ups.
Joseph Aboud’s layering in shades of white, grey and beige,were elegant indeed; and those fab North African woven kilim slip-on shoes peeping out from under a loose fitting turn up trouser – of course was deliciously romantic.
Even Malan Breton, whose Taiwanese design prints are a red carpet favourite, had a denim turn up in amongst the metallic woven silks collection. Although I couldn't help spying a rather fascinating take on the cummerbund – could this mean the return of this sophisticated piece?
