We’ve Already Wish-Listed Rich & Skinny’s New Ombre Jeans For Spring

Truth’s out: Ombre is one thing we haven’t gotten sick of yet. We still love ombre hair, dip-dye bohemian skirts, two-toned bleached out workshirts, and denim like this: Rich & Skinny‘s new ombre colored skinny. Consider this at the top of our wishlist. The rest of the lookbook isn’t far behind, with super-pretty pastel colors and flirty styles that the ladies of DT can’t wait to try on. See our favorite looks below.

Raven Denim Women’s Spring 2012 Lookbook Is A Breath Of Fresh Air

Winter hasn’t done much to distract  us from thinking about summer this year, so we might as well embrace it. We’re all over Raven Denim‘s spring 2012 women’s lookbook, featuring easy poolside style with a bit of a vintage twist. Raven has quite the variety of flare leg jeans (will they make believers out of those of us who still haven’t pulled on a pair for more than one fitting?), from moderate flare to more dramatic approaches. Their skinnies, khakis, and cropped styles come in a basic run of classic hues. These are fresh, fit jeans that will look awesome with clean summer basic knits. Check out the offerings below.

Raleigh Denim Handcrafted Jeans Remain Homespun

North Carolina-based Raleigh Denim has come a long way from sewing jeans in their living room, but the company itself maintains its humility and authenticity by staying local and employing people from their hometown.  For Spring-Summer 2012, you can expect no less than Cone Mills-loomed raw selvage jeans (red chain-stitch hemmed, of course), with an expanded offering of light colored jeans in cement, gray and natural.  Their Grass colored jean is the only non-traditional hue in the mix.  Featuring mostly a collection of straight leg jeans such as their Thin Fit, the collection is characteristically clean and slim fitting.  If you need something with a bit more room, you might try their Work Fit, a regular fit straight leg.

Raleigh Denim Spring-Summer 2012: more slim fit straight legs in raw denim.

3×1: The Custom Denim Makers Who Are Saving Selvage

Personalized denim is revolutionized with Scott Morrison’s denim boutique 3×1 in Soho. Morrison, a denim experimentalist, has been influencing the loom for sometime as the co-founder of Paper Denim & Cloth and Earnest Sewn. We recently met up with 3×1 at PROJECT NY for an up-close look at their custom denim services. Morrison recently opened up in an interview with Racked about his innovative denim bar that combines a chic aesthetic and the comfort of knowing what you are getting. Morrison describes, “people come in, they don’t know if it’s a fabric store or a jean shop or what, but this beautiful sea of denim is probably the most captivating thing.”

The space features glass floor-to-ceiling cubes where the denim construction takes place. Unique to any other company, 3×1 combines the precision and detail of factory work with the elegance of a pair of jeans that are tailored to perfection. 3×1 is complete with a collection of selvage denim like no other, is ready to customize your dream jean or revamp your worn and torn favorite pair. The craftsmanship and dedication to the denim process is reason alone to check out 3×1 and their form fitting fits.

Ashley Smith Hanging Out In Denim For Oyster Magazine

We love editorials that don’t appear too forced (though the occasional awkward, stiff model in a ballgown is fun, we’re sorta free-spirited here at DT). This denim-clad ed in Oyster Magazine hits the nail on the head, featuring Ashley Smith chain smoking and having fun on a summer road trip, shot by Jason Lee Parry. Her gap-toothed grin and excessive jewelry are a refreshing departure from, say, editorials like this, which are denim-rich but lacking a certain genuine joviality that we associate with wearing our favorite fabric. Ashley rocks a variety of denim trends, from printed colored jeans to patchwork mom-jeans and a perfect worn-in, dirty denim workshirt. Take a mini mental vacation today and check out the images below.

Kuro Denim: Top Notch Men’s Jeans From Japan

When we chatted with Kuro Denim at PROJECT NY we were really impressed with the detail and thoughtfulness that we saw in each pair of the Japanese brand’s jeans. They launched with a spring 2010 line under the name Kuro (which translates to black). A blurb in their latest lookbook explains that the name Kuro was chosen because the word represents “darkness and loneliness with an image of great mystery and great strength.” Fabrics include two variations coined Nihon Menpu and Yoshikawa Orimono, and the line comes in a range of fits, from slim tapered to skinny to wide straight.

The real magic is in the detailing and wash of their jeans, our favorite of which looked like they’d been worn lovingly for many years. Artistic, yet modest and clean stitching on the back waistband and “dirty” facades created using fading, distressing, and splashes of paint are just two examples of innovative (but not over-used) approaches we were shown. Some of the jeans are made to look like the factory worker’s jeans, reinforcing the origin of denim as a utility fabric for the working class. After getting up close to the denim, we left feeling like Kuro is a pricey denim brand that delivers a product worth investing in.
