Denim Desires: ACNE JEANS Top to Bottom


If anybody could convince me that top-to-bottom denim is okay, Acne Jeans would be the brand to do it.  Several pieces of Acne Jeans are on sale today at Gilt Groupe: denim jackets, tops, dresses, and, of course, jeans.  Even though it is not mentioned on the description, I believe at least one of the items are a Lanvin/Acne collaboration. Sale ends tonight at 9PM PDT.

Also on sale:
Paige Black Label, Rag & Bone and more.

Denim Desires: TOPMAN Accessories

If you’re trying to wean yourself off of denim, then you’re out of luck. Topshop Topman is going for the jugular, with its offerings of denim footwear, wallets, hats, even a neck chain!  If the name sounds familiar, Topshop Topman is the men’s department of Topshop, the international boutique and brand made famous with the help of supermodel Kate Moss.  Topman also has a neat little collection of denim jeans, as well as a suave denim blazer or two.

Just launched this week:
Topman’s edgy AAA Collection.  Design Director Gordon Richardson wanted to create a mainstay music-inspired collection that “made you look and feel like a rock star.”

For Autumn/Winter 2010:
Look for Fairisle sweaters and toggle coats for Topman’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection.  Cargo pants will continue to play a role in Topman’s fickle fashion foreplay in the frosty months (They currently carry Nautical and edgy!).

Lots of goodies are currently 30% off (Hey now!), so it will dampen the pain of shelling out the big shipping fee if you live outside of New York City. Lucky Manhattanite students can stroll in and save 15% off by flashing a valid student ID card.

Pray For Mother Nature – Chip Off the Old Block


Chip Foster, one-half of the denim wonder twins, Chip & Pepper, is going solo with his new premium denim brand, Pray For Mother Nature.  Inspired by a recent trip to Japan with his wife, Nicole, the couple will be designing the line together.

Launching in the fall and made entirely in Los Angeles of Japanese imported fabric, offered will be nine women’s styles.  Not only will they have the basic five-pocket jeans, but more fashion forward silhouettes such as slouchy cuffed trousers, denim harem pants and a slim style stitched with seams running down the back.  The jeans will retail from $158 to $198 and following the brands name, the line will donate a portion of sales to environmental charities.

Already in high demand by retailers are the Slick Rick, a five-pocket legging made of the superstretchy Japanese fabric, Who’s the Boss, motorcycle-inspired cargo pants that are sleek, slim and tight, and Action Jackson, tight center seam jeans.

Stylefinder: NAKED & FAMOUS Denim Bow Ties Are Just Dandy


Naked & Famous Bow Tie in Red Denim, available at REVOLVE CLOTHING.

naked-and-famous-selvedge-tieHints of bow ties peppered the fashion landscape for the past few years, thanks to the likes of fashion designer Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, TV character Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl, political commentator Tucker Carlson, and tiny fashionista/blogger Tavi Gevinson (remember that giant bow headband at the Dior  Spring 2010 couture show?).  And, now, the bow tie trend is finally gaining some real traction.

In particular, the gentlemen’s bow ties are experiencing a resurgence, thanks to the growing popularity of Dandy style in pop culture.  Once only made of more traditional textiles, such as silk and tweed, Denim brand Naked & Famous presents their new collection of men’s statement pieces (bow ties and skinny neck ties), remixed in selvedge denim.  An everyday man can punctuate his streetwear with just enough dapper features to get his stylish point across.

Paige Premium Denim Does Leather

Paige Premium Denim

Paige Premium Denim isn’t just about denim anymore.  As many other denim brands such as Acne and True Religion have done, has expanded into leather sportswear.  In addition, Paige is in collaborations to produce shoes and bags.

Founded by Paige Adams-Geller, a former fit model, Paige Premium Denim has a huge following often seen on celebrities such as Penelope Cruz, Nicole Ritchie, and Gisele Bundchen, to name a few.

???One of the things that has been growing in the Paige brand is nondenim categories, like ponte and twill,??? Adams-Geller explained, adding nondenim now accounts for 20 percent of the business.

???Leather has always been a passion of mine,??? she said. ???I love shoes, bags, purses, the beauty of it. There is so much versatility and texture and color and weights. Leather is probably the most fascinating material to work with other than denim because there are so many things you can do with it.???

???One of my favorite uniforms has always been a leather jacket with a pair of jeans,??? Adams-Geller said. ???You can??™t go wrong.??? (WWD)

We certainly agree with Adams-Geller, there is nothing more bad-ass and timeless than great fitting jeans paired with a rockin’ leather jacket.  You definitely can’t go wrong.

So, look out for the leather goods, Paige will begin shipping five styles of lambskin jackets and a pegged pant in July. They wholesale from $200 to $325.
