Omar Kashoura Channels Beat Generation Cool For F/W 2012

It may be hard to believe that we’re even thinking about fashion for fall/winter 2012–especially when spring is just around the corner–but we’re still pretty excited about Omar Kashoura’s menswear collection. Inspired by the Beat Generation, Kashoura aimed for a so-called “downtrodden natural worn look,” kept fresh with graphic patterns and golden accents. So if Allen Ginsburg is your literary crush, keep this in mind for fall: relaxed trousers, structured coats, turtlenecks, and blazers galore. You’ll be ready to go ‘on the road’ in no time.

Japanese Raw Denim Takes on the Vintage Levi’s Look

We’ve all seen the gorgeous vintage reproductions of Levi’s  jeans, but did you know that the Japanese company Denim Project decided to try their hand at remaking Levi’s classic 501XX jeans? They’re raw and they’re awesome!  The jeans, known as the 2c Denim Project D00XXs come complete with their own version of the Levi’s label, altered to showcase all of the pop and charm you’d expect from Japan. Cover that label, and you literally can’t tell them apart from the 501XXs. Look!

How To Freeze “Dry Clean” Your Jeans

Freezing your jeans as a method of cleaning is a topic we’ve discussed a few times over the years, but it’s always worth a re-visit  for the sake of newly converted denim-heads looking for a way to clean their jeans sans-water (also, when we saw the gorgeous silver jeans in this Intermix blog pic, we knew we needed an excuse to re-post it). Here’s the run-through…


“To ensure your go-to denim stays fresh, we encourage freezing your jeans rather than washing. Associate buyer, Barbie Cavaleri, swears by this chilling technique and calls it her “at-home dry clean.”

The ‘freeze clean’ method will remove bacteria, preserve dark dyes and special finishes, and restore shape. After investing in this season’s trends, like coated jeans and leather detailing, be sure to use this method to maintain your denim’s waxy look and shine! Here’s how…

5 Easy Steps  to ‘Freeze Clean’ Denim:

Step 1: Spot clean stains and let jeans dry completely
Step 2: Fold lengthwise twice, then smooth out wrinkles
Step 3: Place jeans in zip lock bag and close tightly without air
Step 4: Place jeans in freezer for a minimum of 24 hours
Step 5: Thaw, wear, repeat!”

Lewis Grant for Takeshy Kurosawa Spring 2012 in ‘White Trash & Used Denim’

Tatted up model Lewis Grant adds a new dimension to the urban cowboy in Takeshy Kurosawa‘s Spring-Summer 2012 campaign entitled, “White Trash & Used Denim.”  This playful campaign puts a fun spin on Kurosawa’s Western style shirts, distressed jeans and other vintage washed denim offerings.  The entire collection seems to be a bit of a throwback, from tapered jeans-like silhouettes to cuffed denim bermuda shorts.

Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and inside info! Catch up on what’s happening and browse our personal picks for the most interesting what-not that turns up during our morning web crawl. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!


1. Justin Theroux (who pretty much only wears Nudie Jeans) was on Ellen’s TV show showing off some break dancing moves in the jeans. That’s a whole new kind of endorsement!

2. UNIQLO has a great array of brand new colored ankle-length skinnies for spring. Our mouths are watering.

3. Hiut Denim Co, a new British denim brand that has set up shop in rural Wales, is officially open for business.

5. Denimology pays tribute to AG Jeans’ Ikat jeans (and we just wanted to mention that we saw a girl wearing them in Brooklyn the other day and they’re some of the only graphic jeans that don’t look forced).

Street Style: Patch Work Jeans That Do All The Talking

It’s taken for granted that jeans are a basic you can build off of. They’re the go-to staple that you can dress up with a killer blazer and jewels or dress down with a filmy tank top and flats. But sometimes jeans become the focal point on their own, and no additional frills are needed to nail a killer, effortless look. Mexican blogger Andy T. exhibits this concept beautifully with a pair of acid wash contrast-patchwork jeans (they’re H&M) and a basic black knit top, jacket, and boots.

Jewel Tone Jeans & Classic Cool At CLOSED Fall 2012

Delayed but worth the wait: our report from the CLOSED FW’12 preview/presentation! It was our very last event during NYFW, winding down the whirl-wind week in the dimly lit lounge of the Bowery Hotel. We sipped whiskey sours and saw the collection modeled one ensemble at a time (on models who mingled and posed in a space open to everyone/anyone to jump in for a quick portrait). We were ecstatic to see a saturated cerulean blue jeans in the men’s collection, alongside an impeccably clean-cut denim workshirt, colored cords, and some two-toned knitwear that no man couldn’t find a way to work into his look.

The women’s collection was minimalist-preppy, with texture applied in maroon stripes and metallic embroidered polka-dot. We fawned over an elegant every-day layered one-piece tank top (uncomplicated despite its structure) and subtle tuxedo stripe chinos—a trend we were having a hard time loving until we saw the CLOSED adaptation. We posted about the full collection yesterday, so have a look if you missed it. Bottom line? This collection is clean, cool, and rich. Three things you can’t do fall without.


See our snaps from the presentation below.

Nasty Gal’s February 2012 Lookbook: High-Waist Cut-Offs, Glam Hippie Style, & More!

San Francisco-based Nasty Gal is certainly channeling California hippie style for spring (and making us all wish we could head to the beach!) The crocheted bathing suits, super ragged cut-offs, exposed brassieres, and high-waist floral shorts look like they’ve been ripped straight from The Cobrasnake’s party photos, with some vertiginous, studded heels to add to the more glam nighttime mix of cut-out dresses and spacy metallic motorcycle jackets.

Check out the full collection below!

Kate Moss Looks Smoking In Mango S/S 2012 Campaign

Kate Moss is nearing forty, but still has what it takes to keep us captivated (the sign of a true supermodel!). She’s in the new spring/summer 2012 Mango campaign, with smoky eyes, slick hair, and simple-yet-sublime style. While the only denim shown from the collection are a pair of blue jeans and pale denim shorts, we’re fans of the light, springtime styling. Because, um, pastel sweaters and airy white tees? Totally game. Especially when Ms. Moss is involved.

Check out a close-up shot of Kate Moss in jeans below!
