Ziggy Denim Debuts Stateside With Skeleton x Floral Print #projectshow

Remember Ziggy Denim’s FW12 lookbook, featuring paper bag-clad models and body paint? We just got an up-close look at the collection and fell hard for their wild printed floral denim and intense color palette. Upon closer examination we discovered inconspicuous skeletons dancing between the flowers… spooky!

The super playful brand (with fit names like the “super tight ankle biter”) is making their US debut at a below-$100 price point, which surprised us after we got our hands on how amazing the jeans and chinos feel. Check out some of the spring 2013 womens’ styles below.

Francine’s Agave Jeans Are Versatile & Comfortable

Francine recently tried a little experiment with her Agave Jeans (we’re in the experimenting mood lately). She tried wearing three different pairs with one top and necklace combo, to see if the classic styles would all work with her favorite top of the moment. The results were three new favorite outfits, and some rave reviews about Agave Jeans’ fit and fabrication!

agave denim review 01

The Fusta Slim Jegging: These are so soft (literally like butter) and versatile. Perfect for summer… these are definite beach pants material, and the button-up ankle detail gives it a bit of a nautical twist. I can also see myself wearing these for fall.

The Paloma Classic Skinny: Before trying them on I knew they had to be amazing, because Paloma it’s my daughter’s name! But seriously, these super-skinny jeans are an instant favorite. They fit like a dream.

agave denim review 03

The Tomboy Boyfriend Straight leg: Another pair with super soft, comfortable fabric (and another potential pair of favorite summer beach pants). Despite being boyfriend jeans these have a classic feminine fit, which is perfect for me. Love them!

Stay tuned for more on Agave’s latest styles, and don’t forget to check them out online!

Nudie Jeans Fall 2012 Men’s Denim Preview

We stopped by the Nudie Jeans Co. showroom recently to preview one of our favorite Swedish denim brands—a brand that embodies both modern Scandinavian culture and classic utilitarian elements in denim and sportswear. Their unisex jeans have made the full transition into 100% organic territory, from denim fabric to pocket linings, buttons, rivets and labeling. It’s all raw material. The iconic orange stitching compliments an array of beautiful Japanese plaids with rich autumn hues for the cold season, all of which is further backed by a line of accessories and the exponentially successful backbone collection.

Candy-Colored Denim At The Superdry SS12 In-Store Preview

One day before the new Superdry store opened in Times Square (with plenty of fanfare, AKA free leather jackets), we stopped in to check out the spring collection and have a few vanilla macaroons. The British brand’s oversize kanji character motifs were sold alongside skinny jeans in colors like peachy and near-neon mint green. The jeans were vintage bleached and over-dyed, ready for pairing with summer tops and beach sandals. Stop by and grab a pair for a no-fuss punch of color and excitement in your wardrobe.

Artisanal Jeans At The Raleigh Denim FW12 Preview

We love Raleigh Denim, that’s no secret. The eco-friendly, community-enriching brand with limited runs of specially crafted denim have set themselves apart in the market. But aside from being sustainable and aware, their jeans are gorgeous. We had an up-close look at the fall/winter 2012 line at their recent NY press preview. We browsed raw selvedge jeans for men and women with contrast stitching made from Cone Mills White Oak Denim, individually numbered and signed, along with a range of other fabrics in rich autumn hues. Check out our favorite picks below.

Neon & Printed Denim At The American Eagle FW12 Preview

We had a chance to swing by the American Eagle Fall/Winter 2012 preview on 34th street yesterday, and we liked what we saw. We ascended via elevator into a luminous pastel-neon denim heaven, chocked with spectrum colored and printed jeans, mannequins adorned in AE-styling, and mini breakfast pastries making rounds on platters. We fell hard for a gorgeous array of colored corduroy skinnies and cut-off shorts in every hue. Check out our photos of the event below for more.

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!

NEUW’s Vintage-Inspired Jeans Bring Denim Back To Basics #nyfw

We stopped by Australia’s NEUW Denim showroom for a FW’12 preview yesterday and got schooled first-hand on what an awesome brand this is. One of three designers, Par Lundqvist, has a massive archive of almost 3,000 pieces of vintage denim. He uses them to establish foundations for the NEUW line, alongside every day denim “circumstances”. A metal ring is attached to the front left belt loop of each pair of jeans, because he once wore a wallet chain, which broke and left just a metal ring in its wake. After some time, it became a part of his jeans, and eventually part of the line.

Washes that emulate a field worker’s sun-bleached jeans (they stay dark blue beneath their belts) and denim that feels and looks like the crisp warm-air dryed jeans you pull off your laundry line in the summer are some of the anecdotal styles we saw. And while the washes are innovative, the inspiration is timeless: music, classic rock’n’roll, old school denim culture. The richly dyed men’s line could dress up James Dean or any of the early denim-clad stars of yesteryear (and they could effortlessly outfit today’s rock gods too).

The women’s denim line is a pretty direct counterpart of the men’s line, with colors and design details in place (a dart in the hem, for example).  They branch out with a woven-upholstery inspired motif with great texture and rich hues, and an entire sportswear line that screams “super pretty!” without being too distracting. See for yourself!

Tailored, Clean, & Green: Raleigh Denim Fall 2012 #nyfw

Raleigh Denim Workshop‘s FW’12 presentation was a parade of classic American looks, illuminated (ironically) by the darkest textile on the presentation floor: gorgeous selvedge denim. The North Carolina-based brand (which produces their denim locally via non-automated jeansmiths and vintage sewing machinery) showed for the first time in New York this season. They presented both men’s and women’s styles, all with a consistent theme of woodland-prep, tailored button-down shirts, and a tame, classic color story.

The clothes were all beautiful, but the focus was the eco-friendly denim, created using locally sourced materials from the Mills of Greensboro, NC (which was once a thriving center for denim production). Designers and husband/wife team Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko bring the workshop concept to life through production, one-by-one inspection, limited edition runs, stamped leather patches with unique edition numbers, and signatures on every pair of denim they lovingly release into the world.

To see local garment production make a come back, however small, gives the eco-conscious consumer a bit of hope. This blip on the NYFW radar was rooted in an urgent ethical & environmental movement. Raleigh Denim, while remaining painfully stylish and appealing to all matter of urban folk, is at the forefront of a beautiful era of change, and we can’t wait to share more of their message.
