Cheap Monday: SS09 and AW09 Collections shown at Copenhagan Fashion Week

cheap-monday-logoCheap Monday, one of my favorite jeans – great fit, slimming, fun and most of all, CHEAP!  Their SS09 collection is surprisingly more subdued than in the past, but done beautifully with a softer color palette.  Of course, how could they not throw in a few fun pieces such as the shredded jeans, mod black and white check jeans and colorful polka dot jeans, that I am sure Agyness Deyn has already snatched up!  The boys get a loser fit with some trouser style jeans paired with graphic T’s and jackets.  For the gals such trendy pieces that are sure to be a hit this spring season are the bloomer like shorts. Pair them with a boxy boyfriend cropped jacket, colorful stockings and wooden wedges.

For the upcoming AW09 collection, they incorporate a lot of patchwork,  shredding, plaids, satin bomber jackets, jean jackets with a touch of ‘Oliver Twist’ thrown in for good measure.

oki-ni: Levis Vintage, Simon Miller and Nom de Guerre Online Now!

We have a bit of a denim spectacular this week with the long awaited launch of the ‘Wrath and Dust’ themed Levi’s Vintage Clothing collection and the addition of a new name to our fast flourishing brand list in Simon Miller Jeans.

Levi’s brings us some classic 501 styles in rigid denim with all original detailing and washes with names like ‘Barren Land’, ‘Rootless’ and ‘Roadside’ to represent the struggles of the Dust Bowl migrants. There is some really top quality shirting on offer this season too and it comes beautifully presented in ‘Sun Set’ boxes.

Simon Miller is top quality, clean denim sourced from Japan and made in the US. Scrutinised at length by the guys in the office and hardly a speck of branding could be found on these jeans- they have been hailed as ‘the best quality, most understated’ denim style around.

Nom de Guerre has arrived! We’ve had our first delivery including some new styles to the ones that were available on pre-order. This will shift fast so snap it up immediately!

The oki-ni team

levisOriginally designed as workwear and adopted by farmers and gold prospectors, Levi’s jeans were built to last. The USA was already in the grip of The Great Depression during the mid 1930s, when severe drought caused thousands of people to migrate south from The Great Plains to California. The Dust Bowl catastrophe or the ‘Dirty Thirties’ turned the sky black as hundreds of acres of fertile land was blown to dust.

With their lives in the balance, fashion was not high on the list of priorities. Dark or light shades of denim; worn-in or worn-out – it didn’t matter. Adopting a make-do-and-mend attitude these true survivors dressed in the best they could; waste not, want not- the smallest item had value.

The Spring/Summer 2008 Levi’s Vintage Clothing collection is called ‘Wrath and Dust’. It is a celebration of the indomitable spirit of the Dust Bowl migrants. Hard-wearing products such as Levi’s jeans were vital friends in a time when the smallest thing could make a difference.
















Simon Miller Jeans was established in 2006 in L.A. The company aims to make the highest quality denim jeans with pride and integrity in the USA. All Simon Miller denim is the highest quality sourced from Japan. While many companies claim this, we can truly state that our denim is the best available in the world, mixing selvedge and non-selvedge finishes throughout the collection

All the production, sewing and washing of Simon Miller Jeans is done domestically in the USA in downtown Los Angeles. All rivets and domes are sourced through YKK USA.

Simon Miller Jeans will always be proudly MADE IN THE USA, and wherever possible they aim to support the domestic economy.














Nom de Guerre is a New York based creative collective who combine basic and diverse influences from art, fashion and various New York City subcultures to create their product.

This ‘Storm and Stress’ collection combines history and myth to produce an expression of extremes within the parameters of military ideologies and references. The resulting look is a uniform proposal of a conceptual regiment of boys. The palatte is light blues and greys, colours mimicking the horizon line. These base colours are set off by midnight blue and white – elemental colours of regimental dress clothing.

Outerwear is storm resisitant – made from DM-3 Gore-Tex, pants are made from rugges denim and woven cottons, fine shirting cotton is a staple of the collection and is a washed oxford in utilitarian styles reminiscent of jungle uniforms.

From TalkingShopping: What Brand Is Custom Cutting Jeans for Supermodel Gisele?

By TS Staff 02/18/09 at 04:05 PM


When you’re supermodel Gisele Bundchen fashion labels jump at the chance to get you in their clothes, and they’re willing to make some alterations when needed. While visiting with Miss Me at MAGIC Marketplace, the TalkingShopping gals were interested to learn that a pair of their jeans had caught Gisele’s eye and since she just had to have them, they were more than willing to custom cut Gisele her very own pair. According to Sarah Pollack, a rep for Miss Me, Gisele needed just a few extra inches in length thanks to her very long legs. Check out the video below to see the jeans she can’t wait to get her hands on. The best part is that they’re less than $100!

Diesel Black Gold RTW Fall 2009


by WWD Staff

Source: WWD.COM

Creative director Wilbert Das took intriguing elements of the heyday of jazz and gave them the Diesel treatment in a collection shown to the soundtrack of Miles Davis??™ ???Kind of Blue.???

In men??™s wear, the collection evoked impoverished robber barons, facing down the Great Depression in their now-wrecked Gilded Age wardrobes. Suits patterned with variants of Prince of Wales checks came pre-rumpled, stained and mended. Diesel??™s message to modern men: If this recession becomes chronic, you know where to find us.

Meanwhile, Das showed looks for street-smart women (see women’s images) in outerwear and suits in fabrics and patterns with a smoky look, which recalled the ambiance of small clubs. Slouchy coats were tossed over sequined or chiffon-veiled silk dresses with lingerie touches.

Modern English: Working Class en Vogue

[nggallery id=11]


Seems like one of the many men’s fashion trends to be are leaning towards a heavy influence from the depression era. Lots of World War II-era styles, back to the old school working class work wear with perhaps a dash of British flair. With intense attention to minute details with a refocused mixture of juxtaposed traditional and subversive aesthetics. Here- here!  About bloody time, I say!

Dominic Stansfield, who is the the design talent behind Rushmoor and PF Flyers collection, has created a new line appropriately self named Stansfield.  The inspiration for his line comes from America’s proletariat, circa 1930’s era, with a proper injection of English countryside classics, much influenced by his hometown of Manchester.  Stansfield’s attention to detail and love for the heritage of English classics, has used rich materials such as waxed cotton and wool produced in the UK, particularly from British Millerain up in Rochdale in his collections previous to Stansfield.  He will occassionally use high quality British fabrics, such as super 120 wool, but the large majority of fabrics that he uses are from Japan.

If you want to pair his jackets and shirts up with some jeans, I think a great marriage would be made with some Junya Watanabe’s Fall RTW 2009 collection jeans.  Masterfully designed using an interesting mixture of fabrics with a brilliant homage to the English hunting look.
