Though the hottest days of summer are in the past here in NYC, it’s still humid enough to don white jeans, cropped skinny styles, destroyed denim shorts and simple white cotton tanks. We couldn’t be anymore in love with Genetic Denim’s summer lookbook, which we admittedly wish we’d seen a lot sooner. They nailed cool vintage denim style to a tee, with an effortless vibe that defines the lazy days of summer. See our favorite images from the shoot below, see the full lookbook here, and shop the collection here.

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley posed for Paige Denim’s newest lookbook, and Shopbop gave an exclusive behind the scenes look at the shoot. Rosie had a blast singing along to her favorite 80s songs, which was appropriate considering the collection’s inspiration, which is largely based on that decade’s style sense. She had a hand in everything from photography to set design and styling during the collaboration. Gorgeous and talented? Check and check. See the full feature.

H&M knows that the desire to capture iconic 70s beauty is as popular as ever, and they smartly worked Lara Stone into the mix to ensure their newest campaign for fall—which is, as you can see, oozing with 70s vibes—is a hit. She wears high waisted flare leg jeans like no one else. The mix of light wash denim and camel hues feels as fresh as ever. Could it be that we just never grow tired of seeing this aesthetic? Check out the full campaign.

After the exciting commencement of New York Fashion Week: Men’s, came the rush of New York Market Week where designers and brands showed off their freshest designs and samples to retailers in showrooms across the city.
We started our week at Project New York and our very first stop was E.N.D. denim. We had a brief glimpse of the E.N.D. denim line at the Denim Expo hosted by BPD Washhouse in June. E.N.D. is the new offshoot of the venerable Japanese denim brand Edwin (E.N.D. is an acronym of Edwin ‘N Denim). This sub-brand is so new that at this point that their digital footprint is almost nonexistent so we were lucky to have a quick chat with the designer, Yutaka Endo, and get a closer look at the collection at Project.
Highlights of the collection include denim at an entry-level price point, light chambray shirts, hoodies, and super soft polo shirts. All of the pieces feature one or two of E.N.D.’s signature motifs: the mizuhiki or the asanoha pattern. The mizuhiki knot is a bow traditionally used during gift-giving. The asanoha is an auspicious, abstract hemp leaf pattern. Lookout for the release of E.N.D. in the next year and check back at the Denim Therapy blog for more details on the official launch. If you are in the Brooklyn area you can stop by NOS Boutique in Dumbo to buy a select assortment of E.N.D. teeshirts and men’s jeans.

Free People has launched a new vintage denim and clothing capsule collection, which is (obviously) brimming with authentic ’70s inspired denim, including jumpsuits, a denim bustier, and gorgeous crocheted blouses. The lookbook, shot in Venice Beach, perfectly mimics the authentic vintage vibe of the garments themselves, with accessories like guitar cases and wide brimmed hats accentuating each of the looks.

Ah, cut-off shorts. How we love them. There’s no other item in our denim wardrobe that says “SUMMER!” like a pair of perfectly frayed jean shorts.

Take a visual vacation and get some inspiration here, and some some of our favorite cut-off’s below.

Ah, the age old question: can I wear denim to the office? If you’re working at Denim Therapy, you might find yourself so overwhelmed by the amount of denim circulating the room that you’ll choose to wear silk harem pants or tailored slacks. But we digress—wearing a great pair of jeans to work is, for all intensive purposes, the beginning to the great-day-at-work formula. Mr. Porter knows this well, and they’re big on helping stylish men find ways to wear denim in the office. They’ve prepared a write-up and outfit breakdown to get you started. Each name has a look, and we’re particularly fond of the Ready For Anything.

The Wall Street Journal explored a spectrum of silhouettes and textures beyond the generic skinny jean in an understated editorial for their February 2015 issue. Shot by Annemarieke Van Drimmelen, the denim styling evokes a sense of creativity and effortlessness. Modeled by the enigmatic Constance Jablonski, who reminds of of Cybil from the first Silent Hill game—see?, the effect is an editorial that peers toward the future, patiently waiting for everyone else to catch up. See the full editorial here.
