Behind The Scenes: Renee’s Candy-Colored Buffalo David Bitton Jean Shorts


Here are some behind-the-scenes shots of our super fun Buffalo David Bitton jeans photo shoot, where we took our fav Buffalo styles and ran around Brooklyn in them! Renee favored two pairs of candy-colored denim shorts (one style pink, one style blue), and we styled them up to take some snaps! You’ll notice her shorts are also the perfect length to flash her gorgeous crown tattoo. Now that’s fashion-meets-function! Check out our favorite behind-the-scenes shots below.

FULLCOUNT Denim SS2011 Is a Home Run


FULLCOUNT Denim is a Japanese brand which features shuttle-loomed denim in a moderately sturdy 13.5oz weight. Named for a baseball term when you have three balls and two strikes, we’d like to say this vintage-inspired collection brings a bit of Americana into the brand while maintaining a sense of Japanese aesthetics and fanatical attention to detail. You see that in the simple back pocket style and in the usage of oriental loop fasteners for the season’s featured denim jacket.  Besides the brand’s focus on the revival of vintage jeans inspired by the ’50s and ’90s, we are especially fond of FULLCOUNT’s high-contrast whiskering, helped no doubt by the use of Zimbabwe cotton. This particular cotton is hand-harvested and known for its durability and vertical fading qualities. If you don’t want to spend six months creating your own natural fades, then you might give this brand a shot.

FullCount Denim is a Japanese brand featuring vintage revival jeans styles and high-contrast faded jeans.

Also check out the brand’s Yusaku Denim “real used wash” jeans, and an accompaniment of women’s denim.  View more images at FULLCOUNT online or shop the jeans at Blue in Green Soho or Rakuten.

Men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 Roundup Part 2


For any of those who had a doubt in their mind whether or not denim was going to be sticking around for yet another season we hate to say it, but we totally told you so. From denim jackets and blazers to jeans the big blue makes a mark on most every single note-worthy collection, though not always in its signature color. Print is a huge trend for the spring summer 2012 season and designer Paul Smith totally rocks it out modernizing the classic Levi’s denim jacket with abstract prints in electric jewel tones. As for Viktor & Rolf, multi-stripe denim separates add some dimension to the overall muted color palette of the 70s inspired collection. Likewise, denim jackets made a mark in a retro 70s vibe in Burberry Prorsum‘s ethic print-heavy lineup.

Though it’s definitely not the driving force that it has been in past seasons, denim is still a strong force on the runways lending itself as a grounding element to most collections including Acne,  who we have to say  had some killer denim accessories.  Definitely not going anywhere!

Had enough? Didn’t think so. Stay tuned for more menswear highlights from Paris Fashion Week!

Quote of the Day: Naomi Campbell Compares Jeans To Pasta


Jeans are like pasta … you can interpret them differently each time and play with the accessories … wear them with flip-flops if you want comfort, or heels if you want to look sexy. For the collection I thought about what would enhance women [and] about what I liked.”

Naomi Campbell, who is about to launch a line of jeans for Fiorucci.

Flashback! Colored Denim In The ’90s


’90s trends are back in action, from later version of the hammer-pant to acid-wash and pastel hair dye. Flipping through old magazines from the ’90s is both a bizarre and exciting experience (unless you were just being born in 1996, and weren’t a tween in the age of some of TV’s best programs ever…). As sentimental as we wish we could get, one look at what fashion editorials in the ’90s were actually passing off as fashionable is enough to hit your gag reflex. Check out this mustard-yellow denim-on-eyelet-cotton ensemble, for instance. It means well, with its spring hues and the model’s confusing pose (laughing, itching—what is she doing?), but the end product looks more like a kid’s TV show host than street-savvy.

But then again, that more or less sums up the ’90s, doesn’t it? Stay tuned for more days-gone-by denim coverage! We’re more or less addicted to it.

An Exclusive Interview with David Kahn Jeans (Plus Their Fall lookbook!)


David Kahn is a name well-known to denim lovers. The designer jeans company was originally launched in 1999 to cater to a market that was flooded with tops, yet shy of bottoms for women. It quickly grew a following but it wasn’t until it’s re-launch in the Spring 2011 under designer Bryan Boone that the collection embarked on it’s journey into the contemporary premium denim market. He then added rich textures and colors, luxurious premium fabrics, new silhouettes and fashion forward elements—the fantastic fit remains. Read on for an exclusive interview!

david kahn fall/winter red chameleon denim

Denim Therapy: Lets start from the beginning.  How did you know you wanted to be a designer?

David Kahn Jeans: Denim has been such a great tool for me to show my creativity. I’ve been drawing and painting since I was young but now I just do all my ideas straight on to the jeans. The David Kahn brand has such a cult following that wanted newness and excitement. That’s what I’m providing them with my collection.

DT: Do you have any pre-designing rituals?

DKJ: The inspiration for my collection has been brought on by great female bands and vocalists. So for the past seasons, it’s me getting into a new muse’s music.

DT: Describe the person who represents your ideal target customer—the customer you have in mind when you’re planning a collection.

DKJ: The David Kahn woman is always on point with trends and knows her body and what works and what doesn’t work for her.

DT: Can you give us hint about what’s next?

DKJ: It’s going to very earthy and happy!

DT: What are the most popular washes/fits in the line? What are your favorites, and how would you style them?

DKJ: My current favorite is our Brenda Skinny. Brenda is our new contemporary fit. My friend Jessica is super tall and typical “skinnies” only reach above her ankle. I wanted to do a true skinny. So we made it with a 34” inseam. Its super long!  But its great for shorter girls too because they can wear a higher heel. Because it’s on Japanese power stretch fabrication it contours to the body perfectly and adds a cool bunchiness look in the bottom. Some girls might like it cleaner so they can always get it hemmed.

DT: Do you have any favorite/least favorite denim trends right now?

DKJ: Drop crotch denim silhouettes don’t really appeal to me.

DT: Street style and style blogs are huge in the industry right now as a source of inspiration, influencing the high end labels rather than vice versa. How much does street style influence your designing?

DKJ: Street style is definitely an important part of my inspiration. Seeing how individuals dress and outfit themselves sparks new ideas and it just grows from there.

DT: How many pairs of denim do YOU own?

DKJ: Less now. Probably 10-15.

DT: Favorite celeb wearing your brand?

DKJ: Definitely Fergie. She really knocked it out of the ball park with her Nikki Goldrush Wash, especially exciting since it was the brands first celeb spotting.

You can visit their website for a greater insight into the brand and “Like” them on Facebook as much as we do.

Thank-You!

5 Good Reasons (& Ways) To Have Denim Therapy Fix Your Jeans


It happens to the best of us. We trip, we fall, we have kids, we gain and lose weight, we don’t always shop for the best-fitting jeans because we’re blinded by a brand on sale, etc… shopping for denim and building a relationship with your favorite pair of jeans is no low-maintenance task. There are a myriad of things that can go wrong along the way, but rather than giving up on them, why not let us bring them back to life?

Daily Denim Tip: How To Wear Colored Denim (Whether You’re Feeling Bold Or Not)


“Colored denim is such a fun trend happening right now, and there are options for everyone, whether you’re a risk taker or just testing the water! If you’re not sure which color works best, or you’re nervous about rocking a bright red pair of denim, keep it subtle and choose something you can wear every day without feeling self conscious.

I love Rag & Bone’s Dusty Blue Skinny – it’s an easy way to wear colored denim and it will easily blend with most items currently in your closet. For those who are a little more daring, the Skinny in Kelly Green, Bell in Cobalt or Capri in Crimson add the perfect pop of color to any outfit! Just remember to keep your top & accessories subtle since the focus should be on the jeans—and you don’t want your outfit to look like a spin art project gone wrong!”
