G-Star Raw Men’s & Women’s Denim Picks #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


G-Star Raw presented a utilitarian-chic lineup of men’s and women’s denim for their FW13 showing here in Vegas, following up on an intense FW13 runway show earlier this season. Their new campaign, The Art of Raw, exemplifies the boundless possibilities of a lifestyle carved from raw denim, weaving elements of military style, formal wear, and streetwear into a new kind of “uniform”. The art can be found in clean lines, denim treatments, the pairing of materials (ie: denim and leather)… all through a very fresh and updated lens. We selected our favorite pieces from the line below.

3×1: Detailed Denim Made In The USA


The thing we love most about trade shows like PROJECT are how up-close we can get to the denim. We can inspect the fabric hand, design details, and special components that set brands apart from one another. Besides their adorable mini-jeans, 3×1 was equipped with the particulars to keep us around their booth for a while, from their top notch Japan-sourced denim to their made-in-the-USA finishes.

Join us in marking our calendars for spring and eagerly awaiting the release of the intensely stylish selection below.

Gap’s Rainbow Spectrum Of Colored Denim For Spring 2013


If we learned one thing at the spring 2013 previews this season, it’s that colored denim is living on as a leading trend in denim. Gap went above and beyond by offering an entire rainbow spectrum of colors, from an adventures yellow to a more casual cyan blue. Also on the menu, broken-in khakis in pastel versions of their denim counterparts, printed blazers, and dark “lived-in wash” jeans. Basically, everything you need to add some prep to your spring look.

Pastels & Festival Style: Guess Spring 2013


As revved up as we are for the holidays and impending cold-weather festivities, the Guess spring 2013 preview made us long for sunny spring days again. Their candy-hued pastel colored denim and sportswear came with an emphasis on mint green and peach. A capsule collection specific to festival fashion was displayed in a separate room on astroturf. The icing on the cake? Carnival candy and macaroons circulated the room, making summer seem just within reach.

Colored Denim Added To Raleigh’s Spring 2013 Repertoire


A brand well known for being ultra-classic and artisan-inspired, Raleigh Denim is branching out into trendier waters for spring 2013. Fear not, they won’t be pushing any pop-art inspired prints or novelty cuts. Instead, they’re introducing a variety of colored denim for women in rich hues like cranberry, pale-lilac, and grape. Yes, we want them all.

Crisp Cuts & Florals: Raleigh Denim SS13 Presentation


Raleigh Denim‘s spring 2013 presentation showcased a light and breezy side to the ethical brand’s otherwise modern industrial aesthetic. Graphic elements included specially designed floral prints, grids and geometric shapes. There was a gorgeous white dip-dyed silk dress and smart button-ups for both sexes. Dark wash raw denim was cuffed up to reveal selvedge, and a pair of sexy short-shorts on a blonde female model brought immediate nostalgia for next summer.

Kill City’s In-Store Exclusives & New Take On Fast Fashion #projectshow


Kill City‘s latest initiatives involve in-store semi-exclusives for men and women (also sold to a few select retailers). The men’s picks include cone mill denim stripped and over-dyed. We saw a few selects from the fall collection in autumnal hues and classic blue, as well as a gorgeous denim biker jacket with coated sleeves. The women’s line includes neon lemon and mango colored denim skinny jeans that—let’s face it—you can wear all year round.

The brand’s direction is aimed at bringing a new concept to fast fashion: extremely affordable jeans and sportswear that uses the maximum quality fabrication and hardware. Rather than go cheaper in both price and quality, they’re keeping their product top shelf for way less than the competition.

Public School‘s crisp new men’s denim line has one aesthetic aim: New York-centric. The tailored set has innovative pieces like a candle-wax coated canvas jean that molds to your body as it heats and cools, as well as classics like an indigo over-dyed  slim fit and raw basics. The forward-thinking line shows no sign of vintage wear and tear—just fresh, wearable jeans that lend themselves flawlessly to the urban man’s wardrobe. The NY-made collection will officially debut at the SS13 presentation in September.

Gilded Age T-Shirts Pay Homage To Vintage Car Companies #projectshow


We love Gilded Age‘s spray-dyed and worn in vintage denim, but it was their newest men’s t-shirt collection that caught our interest at PROJECT today. The designer opted to pay homage to vintage car companies with each style, screening the company logo on a desaturated tee and including information on the hang tag (such as the lifespan of the company and what models they produced). He chose lesser known companies—like The Horseless Age, Simplex, and Knox—some of which only stayed in business a few years. We rounded up our favorites below.
