This is a lovely turn on a jeans shirt, even though it isn’t actually denim.  D&G has produced a sweatshirt that has been fashioned to resemble a denim or chambray button down shirt.  Very clever.  Get yours now on sale at FORWARD!

Sneaker-heads, sneaker-pimps, and denimphiles unite!  When two of your favorite fashion staples collide it’s sheer fireworks!  There’s a lot of amazing kick-ass-kicks on the market this season!

One of the best couture fashion and denim collaborations ever, Lanvin x Acne, continue to wow us with their fantastic denim collections.  The Lanvin x Acne Spring/Summer 2010 Medium High Trainer comes with a denim upper with light piping, unlike last season’s dark piping.  Shown here with the silk navy with red zigzag Medium High Trainers.



Tretorn x Comme des Garcons Shirt Spring 2010 Canvas Sneaker

Swedish label Tretorn and cult Japanese label Commes des Garcons has collaborated on a low-profile canvas sneaker.  The Tretorn x Commes des Garcons navy canvas low top sneaker with a green foxing band and white sole are simplicity done to perfection.  An effortless style in a classic silhouette, perfect for a sunny summer day.



Vans x Supreme Pack

From the masterminds of New York skate and streetwear, Supreme, have come out with another great collaboration with Vans.  This new Vans x Supreme pack includes the Era lowtop and rarely seen Sk8-Hi Mid.  There are two pairs of Eras, one with a white/blue mix and another in grey canvas, while the Sk8-Hi Mids go with the bleached look on the side panels with grey suede on the forefoot.

Tory Burch Expanding Her Denim Line


Tory Burch, the socialite turned very successful fashion designer with the fabulous ‘T’ logo, is expanding her denim category for the fall. Styles offered in her collections are slim-cut, skinny, boot-cut, boy-friend, denim leggings, stretch corduroy and capris. Added to the mix are a sailor-cut style, printed denim, bottoms that have been hand-painted in silver and a jacket and a bottom that feature a washable leather.

“We want to prove ourselves in the denim world and we want to do it in the right way and at the right pace,” she said. “For us, it’s a learning process. I feel that we are at a good place right now. I’m really happy with the direction of our collection and it’s something that we’re going to continue to work on and expand. I think there’s always room for denim in the market if it’s great.”  (WWD)

About 50% of the fabric will come from Japanese denim mills and the majority of production is in Asia. Retail prices for the jeans will range from $165 to $250, and tops ranging from $295 to $425. The denim line will be available in all the Tory Burch stores in the U.S. and on its Web site.  In addition, many of the brand’s wholesale customers have picked up the line, as well as 100 department and specialty stores in Europe and Asia.

Stylefinder: Men’s Carrot Fit Jeans


Contrary to popular belief, men also have trouble finding the right fit, when it comes to jeans.  Thanks to the denim industry, a multitude of fits have been conceived to break open the shackles of boring, constrained male silhouettes.  Consider the Carrot fit jeans:  built roomy in the thigh area, dropped crotch, and tapered down to a straight leg.  Depending on the cut of the jean, a man with muscular thighs can carry the carrot jeans off like a slim or straight leg, without cutting off circulation.  Warning:  if you are on the short side, look for Carrot fit jeans that begin the taper above the knees.  If the thigh is too baggy, your thighs will look bigger, unless that’s the look you were going for.

Featured above:
(L to R, Top) Nudie Jeans Big Bengt Carrot Jeans, ASOS Dark Wash Carrot Fit Jeans, TopMan Raw Indigo Arc Leg Carrot Fit Jeans, and Diesel Krooley 8A0 Tapered Jeans.
(L to R, Bottom) AllSaints Gun Fit, Unconditional Side Zip Carrot Jeans, G-Star Raw ‘Morris’ Tapered Jeans, and TopMan Bleached Denim Carrot Fit Jeans.
