ACCESSORY DESIGNERS AND RE-
tailers looked in their crystal balls and
came up with the following trends for
their products this spring/summer:

Armanis and Donna Karans continue
to be intrigued by the versatility and
quality of denim, the real challenges
in jeanswear this season again derive
from the rock 'n roll generation. Or,
more appropriately in 1992, the MTV
And oversized overalls, shortalls,
and oversized jeans are what's
happening on MTV.
And what about those over 30?
Well, you can count on the sudden,
spectacular rise of country and
western music to influence the vast
canyons of jeanswear fashion.
