Introducing Denham ‘First Edition’ For The Ladies

It’s no secret that I’ve always had a love story with menswear. As much as the sight of a man in a well cut suit makes me weak in the knees, what I admire the most  is that, while fashion for women is almost ruled by the expansion of fast fashion, men’s  labels have retained a certain sense of heritage and craftsmanship .

I have secretly been coveting Denham Jeans  as they exemplify a niche  boutique denim category that is seldomly  explored on the women’s side.  Thankfully Denham has answered my prayers with  a stunning women’s  collection that stays true to their tailored aesthetic. Denham for women is not about tight and stretchy,  in their own words  “the truth is in the details.” A closer look at the exclusive  ”First Edition” jean for women on the next page. Available in Denham House shops in Amsterdam and Tokyo, Colette in Paris, Present in London, 14OZ.  in Berlin, Gerard’s Loft in Florence and Dantone in Milan.

Vivienne Westwood X Lee Jeans

VWLee6 Vivienne Westwood X Lee Jeans

All-American brand Lee’s biggest competitor, Levi’s, is many miles ahead in the game of positioning itself as a  hip brand via collabos (I mean, when was the last time you saw a fashion savvy person in Lee jeans?), but this collabo Lee is doing with Vivienne Westwood,  called “Lee Anglomania” gains it some points. From what I can make out from the German press release, the collabo launches this July and will feature jeans in a variety of cuts, plus hot pants, and will be sold online at ZapposCouture, Net-A-Porter and Asos, among others. More images after the flip.

Current Elliot X Marni Denim

Current Elliot X Marni

There have been a few sneak peeks of the U.S. premium denim brand Current Elliot collaboration with Italian-lux brand Marni and the May issue of Vogue offers up one more, which is featured here. Definitely the screen print (or is it embrodery?) provides an interesting update on the worn-in boyfriend look on which Current Elliot made its name. The collection will retail between $180 and $500 and will be available at Marni stores, plus Barney’s, Neiman’s and Saks this June, according to Stylecaster.

Rich & Skinny: Fall 2010 Lookbook

14 April 2010, 13.48 | Posted in Denim, lookbook | 1 comment »


We posted a couple of looks from Rich & Skinny’s fall line a couple weeks back, highlighting the brand’s evolution from shredded looks to cargo pockets, and now you get a look at the entire fall lookbook. The line features lots of pockets and not just as a side seam detail, but also positioned on the front of the pants, as they are with the shorts featured here.

See many more looks after the jump.

Rich & Skinny: The Cargos Are Coming!

08 April 2010, 14.31 | Posted in Denim | No comments »


Just last season Rich & Skinny like lots of other premium denim brands was mostly ripped to shreds. Not sure what transpired over this past winter, but like a sonic boom suddenly cargo pockets and khaki are all the rage. And just like JBrands sold-out Houlihan cargos, reps from Rich & Skinny, whose showroom we visited last week, say their hottest fall style is the khaki cargo featured above on the far right. Personally I am all over this trend like a 2009 teenager on Ugg boots. Are you getting on board, too?

Levi’s Fall 2010 Press Preview Event

01 April 2010, 16.21 | Posted in Denim | 1 comment »

 Levis Fall 2010 Press Preview Event

Levi’s held a big press preview in New York yesterday for its fall 2010 line. The event included live models (poor girls, they had to stand on their displays with much higher heels than the guys!), a band and a photo exhibition. Most important of all, natch, was the denim. And it looked great. Lately there’s been a little tug of war going on at Levi’s between trendy versus classic treatments and details and this collection struck the right balance between the two so there’s a little something for everyone.

After the flip more images of the event, plus a pair of jeans featuring an inseam zip that Samia got a little obsessed with!

KhloeJBrandAlex Khloe K. in Super Hot J. Brand AND Alex Clogs!!

She’s been my secret-fave Kardashian sister for a while now (shhh, don’t tell anyone), but I’m not so sure anymore now that I’ve spotted her wearing two items I am dying to own (one of which–the shoes–I never will, they are sold to the wall, folks): J. Brand super-duper hot Houlihan jeans, and, (I sob as I write this) THE Alexander Wang clogs. How do I now hate you, “Klow,” let me count the ways!

Images from DenimBlog. Catch her going on the flip and see part of the reason Lamar loves her so!

Levis Pencil Skirt in Breaker

16 March 2010, 14.21 | Posted in Denim, Fashion | No comments »


While I  cannot remember the last time I  wore denim a skirt, Levis puts together a grown and sexy  pencil skirt in white denim. The  ripped edges make it so much cooler, adding that lived- in slightly rugged feel. Proving that perfection is often  in the small details. Available at levisonline. More views on the next page.
