Bitching & Junkfood ‘Remade’ Spring/Summer 2011 Look Book

28 June 2011, 19.24 | Posted in Denim, Design, Fashion, lookbook | 1 comment »

Eliza Doolitle

London-based design duo Bitching and Junkfood launched just a year ago, and by heck have they come proper yet again. Doing it their way has seen the project grow to include collaborations with big name U.K. retailers such as Urban Outfitters, as well as two in-house labels one of which is Remade. The label is heavily influenced by blog culture and looks scooped off the streets surrounding their East London studio. Their Spring/Summer 2011 draws heavily on 90s rock and death metal trends for inspiration–which us Snobette’s adore! Their Remade Levi’s Bitchy shorts already have a cult following, as seen on the lovely Eliza Doolittle (above via Ohhlalook).

Each pair of the high-waisted shorts, are cut on the body to guarantee a flattering fit (wave goodbye to the camel toe!) and they use only 501 for girls to ensure a consistent fit. This season sees the basic style advanced and made somewhat more playful by introducing suspenders, fringing, feathers and bleaching. Jackets and shirts are adorned with rivets and eyelets and rock tee-shirts are re-cut with mesh panels. Everything is handmade in their Hackney East London studio, with every piecea one off so the coast is clear from the masses.  More goodies on flip! –Danity Blame.

Denim Bounces Back

JoesMicroSkinnyFlair Denim Bounces Back

Denim was in a bit of downward spiral for a while. After the recession it was due for a price correction anyway, plus there wasn’t a lot of newness and low-priced jeggings overran the category. But now retail statistic company NPD is reporting that women’s denim sales for the first three months of this year were up 20 percent, spurred by women buying more jeans at higher price points. The company attributes the uptick to new silhouettes, motivating women to open their wallets.

We wrote about the turbulence in the denim market in early March, highlighting the launch of Joe’s skinny “Micro Flare” jeans (above) as a sign that skinny jeans’ perch of dominance was being challenged by lots of new profiles. And in retail, new fashion is good in that it inspires people to spend. Not sure though if this means the demise of skinnys just yet, but definitely some sort of shift is occurring, though we think it’s a little too soon to say where the trend is going to land. Via WWD.

LEVI'S Fall 2011

Shot by the adorable William Yan, we had to give you a second look at the Levi’s presentation highlighting  their upcoming collections.
