9 Floral Jeans We Love, Inspired by The Glamourai


Like many of us, we weren’t sure we would ever wear floral jeans, but this trend has entered into the spring fashion vernacular in full force.  After seeing The Glamourai (Kelly Framel) style her floral denim look on her blog, we were emboldened to try it.  And, after reviewing all the gorgeous assortment of floral printed denim coming from our favorite denim brands, we just had to share 9 of the most covetable jeans in bloom.  Thrown together with a neutral top and platform sandals—with ankle jeans—and you’ll be ready to rock the cement catwalk.

Ombre Skinnies & Coated Denim At The Doctrine Jeans Fall Preview


The Doctrine Jeans showroom preview blew us away with new styles in both women’s and men’s denim for fall 2012. Our favorite styles for women included a spectrum of coated ombre skinny jeans (think colors like berry, bronze, and coal). Two other stand-out pieces for the ladies were the jumper and dark wash overall. We got another up-close glimpse of the men’s Teflon coated maroon jeans that we first saw at PROJECT (which are now being produced in two additional colors). Check out the line below!

Printed jeans are in full force this season, and Joe’s Jeans is out to show us how we can rock their latest Printed Denim Collection for Spring 2012. Expect to find floral jeans inspired by interior design and Pop Art; a tribal print, a muted leopard jean and a snake print skinny. Famed photographer Tao Ruspoli was commissioned to shoot this short film, featuring models strutting around a mansion, really nailing the fierce printed jeans look. Creative Director, Joe Dahan shares, “This collection is very playful yet sophisticated. We drew inspiration from impressionists and other art forms including music, the streets, nature and interior design.” His favorite print, Electric Blue Pop Art Daisy, blends abstract and pop art elements for a high fashion statement piece. Check out the film below for more insight.

Style.com Features Denim Therapy’s Expert Repair Service


We’re totally psyched for our expert denim repair service to be featured on Style.com today. Check it out:

“You can ignore signs, portents, and hints, sailing blissfully along on that fabled river in Egypt. But it’s harder to ignore your knee, when it makes an inappropriate appearance in the middle of a meeting at your office, through a fresh hole in your favorite, ancient pair of jeans.

I had to admit that my Levi’s had seen better days. Weekly wear for the better part of eight years had reduced them to a perfect, impossible-to-replicate color and the silky thinness of a French crepe. The waistband had disintegrated into near nothingness on the left side, the new knee-hole joined a few others I’d been studiously not noticing, and the back pockets offered previews of my wallet through hard-won slits.

I wasn’t alone. “Everyone has that favorite pair,” says Francine Rabinovich, the owner of Denim Therapy, a denim repair service. A former brand consultant, Rabinovich founded the company out of personal need: No one would fix her tatty jeans as seamlessly as she wanted. She began the company as a side project at the beginning of 2006; when it outgrew that, she devoted herself to it entirely. Over the last year, she’s seen 100 percent growth.”

Jeans Review: Paige Verdugo Ultra Skinny Legging in Paige Blue


As you may recall, Paige Denim has a new look and they’ve launched so many great styles for Spring 2012, including their trademark Paige Blue hue.   Our writer Kathy, isn’t used to wearing a lot of bright colors, but her favorite color happens to be blue, so she gave the Verdugo Ultra Skinny Legging in Paige Blue a shot.  See her review of the style below.

Kathy reviews the Paige Verdugo Ultra Skinny Legging in Paige Blue.

 

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

They fit really well on me and surprisingly, for a denim legging, I loved that it sort of gives me a lift, if you know what I mean.

Where/when would you wear these?

They’re very comfortable and I see so many possibilities with them.  You can wear them with a bright top for a daytime street style look, or you can go rocker with a black leather jacket and boots for an evening out in Hollywood.  I’m excited to see more jeans styles made in Paige Blue!

How’s the fit?

I love the fact that the jeans didn’t choke my knees, and the inseam (at 30″) is perfect for flats or ankle boots.  The jeans feel really soft and there’s just enough stretch for mobility; and, it recovers to keep everything in its place.

Love these jeans? Grab your pair of The Paige Verdugo Ultra Skinny Legging jean in Paige Blue ($179) at Paige online or similar colors at REVOLVE Clothing.   Jeans courtesy of Paige.

1. Need mint green jeans right now? Check out 9 perfect pairs and pick one (or two) to call your own! Kim Kardashian did.

2. Check out this utilitarian Dover Street Market uniform, designed by Bleu de Paname.

“The jacket has a french workwear feel while the trousers are a lightweight denim number which go a little off course with the ribbed cuff at the ankle. Aside from that, a nice take on a shop floor uniform.”

3. Denim shirt over a wedding dress = coolest outfit ever.

4. If you’re curious about what the production process of raw denim really looks like, here’s a pretty rad video that’ll show you how it’s done. Check out that beautiful, steaming indigo.

Last Night’s Earnest Sewn Fall 2012 Preview Party


Last night, denim lovers packed themselves inside the Earnest Sewn shop in the Meatpacking District to get first dibs on the fall collection (read our previous coverage of the collection) and meet with Creative Director Benjamin Talley Smith. We asked him why the preview was open to the public (rather than to press and VIP only): “As returning designer I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to see the new direction of the line. I think it’s important that our customers know where we are headed and I love the feedback. I also believe that Earnest Sewn is about a lifestyle and having a good time, so throwing a party is important to me.”  Just in case you weren’t there to also enjoy a performance by Brooklyn-based band New Beard, we’ve got a few party pics.




Go to Earnest Sewn online to pre-order the Fall 2012 collection.
