Our Favorite Moments From Project, Day 1 #projectny


Reminisce with us as we take a look back at the first day of Project Show, from super-cute animals (what’s a trade show without cute animals?) to terrifying shoes and a superior lounge area, complete with ping pong.

The Ideal Messenger Bag Via WILL Leather Goods #projectny


We’re always on the market for a bag upgrade (you might even call us addicted…to bags), and this WILL Leather Goods wax canvas coated messenger bag caught our eye. The large bag is functional with water and wind resistant fabric, wearable as a cross shoulder or carry on tote. It features leather handles and reinforced stitching for sturdiness. And here’s a huge plus: the bag comes with a plaid travel pillow—we love that WILL doesn’t stuff their bags with plastic or other materials you’re going to toss in the garbage as soon as you open them.

Fresh Summer Style On The Floor of Project NY #projectny


We snapped this Project Show-goer in an effortless ensemble to show you what casual-cool looks like in the muggy NYC summertime. She’s wearing a loose tank over a hot pink bikini top and some classic cut-off shorts. High tops and a stylish bag, and she’s out the door! Ladies, take note. Boys, you can wear basically the same thing, sans-hot pink bikini.

Kunna’s Denim Jackets, Inspired By Japanese Industrial Uniform #projectnyc


The roots of denim lay deep in the highly functional uniforms of industrial workers worldwide. We love when brands reach back into these roots and transform the concept into something modern and fashion-forward. Japanese denim brand Kunna showed us a heavily washed, soft-textured chambray jacket that does exactly this, featuring patch pockets and a relaxed fit. Pair this classic with your current summer looks to transition seamlessly into fall.

Raleigh Denim’s Summer Canvas Jean For Men #projectnyc


We’re live blogging from PROJECT New York for the next three days, hand selecting our favorite new products on the market. First up, our friends from Raleigh Denim just tempted us with this rad pair of men’s canvas jeans. The 10.5 oz oak mill natural canvas is highlighted with red top stitching, and if you turn them inside out, you’ll find hip bones screened on the cotton pockets. The paper bag treatment creates a crinkled texture that adds dimension to the silhouette. We’re sold.

MYKITA New York Store Opening


We tried on some shades at the MYKITA store opening in SoHo last night, celebrating the newest leg of the brand’s increasingly large global reach. MYKITA’s German eyewear is lightweight, comfortable, and stylish as hell… a combination you can’t ignore. As if their frames weren’t cool enough, the concept behind the location at 109 Crosby street is every bit as thought out.

MYKITA Store opening crosby nyc

From MC’s review at Hey Mishka:

“No detail of this interior has been overlooked. Everything from the neon tubes that illuminate the building’s original metal pipes along the ceiling to the structure of the shelves and the storage units (old air stewardess trolleys) have been honed to reflect the brand’s unique image.

There was a real emphasis on preserving the building’s original heritage as an Art Deco landmark while creating a vibrant show space for the product. You know those places that are just fun to shop in, even without champagne?”

A Denim-Head’s Dream: Custom Jeans & Absolut Vodka At Loren


Denim lovers in Brooklyn know of a little gem on Nassau avenue right at the fringe of Greenpoint and beginning of Williamsburg, where the brunch and dinner crowds form for Five Leaves and Nights & Weekends. Loren is a small white brick denim haven filled to its brim with made-in-Brooklyn jeans, vintage denim finds and related treasures like men’s accessories and a selection of women’s denim staples. Denim Therapy was invited in for a bottle of vodka (wrapped in a snug denim case, designed by Loren Cronk in a special collaboration with ABSOLUT) and some jeans-to-go. We finished the evening off with denim-themed cocktails at Nights & Weekends.

Trend Alert: Overall Jeans


We love when childhood favorites make comebacks as stylish wardrobe staples. The overall jean is no exception, but this is one piece you’ll need to pull off with specific style cues in order not to look like you’re simply regressing to the days of early Nickelodeon cartoons and Bazooka gum. Honestly, WTF did a round-up of chic ways to wear them, our favorites of which are below.

Raffael Reviews Denim & Leather’s Straight Leg Coated Jeans


Andrew Marc has worked hard to establish a reputation as an iconic American brand since its inception in 1982. In spring 2013 the company launched Denim &  Leather: a brand defined by an absolute love of Americana and the rebellious culture of the 40′s 50′s and 60′s. This brand captures the authentic spirit of these times with a contemporary and functional approach. It is a premium denim label that designs products for a young market: one that exudes rock and adventure.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Crinkle Night Wash straight leg jeans, so after hanging out with them for the past 3 weeks I’ll tell you what I think of them…

-

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

“Wow. Badass.” It doesn’t get much more rock’n'roll than black coated denim.

Where/when would you wear these?

I’m totally wearing these bad boys for my DJ gigs regularly. Good jeans are one way to own the night.

How’s the fit?

Perfect straight leg fit with room to move—and jump, as you can see below. I admire the strong craftsmanship. They’re sturdy, but they’re also comfortably. And most importantly, sexy.
