Are you a bow tie kind of man? We know a few gentlemen who might appreciate the sartorial accents provided by Italian designer Federico Batelli‘s range of denim bowties, new for Spring-Summer 2012. The “Untitled” collection features bow ties in a variety of indigo, tie-dyed and bleached effects, whether that be in denim or chambray. We’re loving the variety of textures on these portable accessories, worthy of The Sartorialist‘s attention. Now the question remains: how would you style your denim bowtie?
Surrounded and swooning in colored denim, Thvm Atelier helps S/S 2012 come alive with their latest lookbook. With all shades of his and hers, the line projects an androgynous undertone leaving you to question: are those men’s or women’s jeans? The lookbook is full of vibrant denim that feeds off of its contrasting colored neighbor. Sharing is caring and it’s clearly an unanimous agreement in this stylish grouping of intertwined Thvm lovers.
If you’re just getting out of your winter funk and easing into your spring wardrobe, thanks to the fair weather lately, perhaps you can take cues from Denim & Supply‘s Spring 2012 offerings of lightweight denim and chambray pieces that will go well with your go-to tee shirts or everyday jeans. In the women’s collection, the Ralph Lauren heritage really shines through in the hues and the easy jeans silhouettes. For the men’s collection, the notable statement denim are the denim jackets. Cut a bit boxier in faded washes, the jeans jackets are the hassle-free layering companions. The entire range is anchored by the softness that its vintage treatments offer; a classic way to wear spring fashions in an effortless looking way.
Siwy Denim‘s Fall 2012 look book features model Chelsea Tyler, who makes every pair of jeans look It Girl cool. If the name and the mouth seem familiar, Chelsea is indeed Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler’s daughter. That makes her Liv Tyler’s little sister (a former face of G-Star RAW). And, with daddy’s recent clothing line launch, it seems fashion is also staying in the family. Check out the lookbook photos and see if you don’t discover the inner rocker in you.
The first thing we thought when we saw Armani Exchange‘s spring/summer 2012 lookbook was, “Wow, we could wear a lot of this stuff to work.” The bright orange cropped jeans and khakis look certifiably professional (especially when paired with heels, chiffon tops, and slouchy blazers). But this collection isn’t all work and no play–there’s a few summer weekend looks we’d love to cop. Denim shorts paired with a crochet knit top and aviators? We’ll see you at the beach.
In contrast to Closed‘s Fall 2012 collection, which incorporates subdued splashes of colored denim and separates, the Winter collection kicks it up a notch with bolder and brighter blues, magenta (an emerging trendy color right now), softened greens and purples, which dot the men’s collection. For the women, expect to find bronze and silver jeans along side their colorful gem colored jeans. Of course, you can sift through their requisite collection of indigo and grays for winter—all in slim and skinny fits—but don’t you think a splash of color adds spice to your wardrobe?
We got our hands on both of Raleigh Denim‘s lookbooks for spring/summer 2012, and these jeans were definitely made to be worn in! The men’s line is clean and muted, if slightly rustic, while the women’s line features jeans that were made for action–as evidenced by the images of ladies scaling buildings in punchy orange skinnies and hiding in the bushes wearing raw, selvedge straight-leg denim. If you can’t get enough, definitely watch out for Denim Therapy‘s fall/winter 2012 showroom preview to see what’s coming up next season…
The Joe’s Jeans spring 2012 lookbooks for men and women are out, and it looks like a clean, casual look is in order. The women’s line is a bit more rock’n'roll with some ripped open knees and dangerously short hemlines. Even well-behaved silhouettes like the high-waisted dark wash skinny and fire-red flare-leg are oozing sex appeal. The men’s line plays it more safe, with preppy colors, nautical stripes, and some great basics knits.
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.
There are more styles from The Joe’s Jeans Printed Denim Collection, available at Neiman Marcus online.
