We’ve notice for quite some time how Lee Jeans in Europe (aka Lee Europe) has a covetable collection of on-trend jeans for men and women, and they continue to surge forward for Fall-Winter 2012 with a range of colored jeans in tailored cuts and sleek silhouettes. You wouldn’t even stop to think that its American counterpart collection could somehow be related, but we won’t go there. We only hope Lee brings some of those yummy jeans stateside, because we’re ready to have our minds changed. Yes, Lee Jeans might possibly be cool again in the U.S. Check out the gallery for all the velvety, sleek looks!

Guess is known for its sexier take on denim and they’re certainly turning up the heat for fall/winter 2012. For women, they’ve styled skinny jeans with luxe coats, collared shirts (even if they’re sometimes, um, see-through), bold take-charge heels, and chunky gold accessories. The message they’re sending men? Turn down the glam, turn up the campy rugged edge with fisherman’s sweaters, dusty boots, and suspenders. But we still think that is sexy, FYI.

Free People found the best way to make their clothes pop was by contrasting their colorful attire with beautiful land and landmarks. Models Martha Hunt and Michele Ouellet traveled with the team to Vietnam to shoot a magnificent lookbook for the brand’s March editorial. The calming landscape evokes a sense of endless pacifism and provides the perfect backdrop to bring the bohemian brand’s style to life.

There’s no stodgy styling in the spring/summer 2012 lookbook for Topshop’s denim line for ladies and we’re super-glad. The funky fresh outfits would be perfect for a summer music festival or a day-to-night beach look. Guess we’re not the only ones planning for summer already! Based on these images, we have an excellent variety to look forward to: floral, metallic, faded, and colored jeans galore. Plus, bedazzled shorts, highlighter-saturated jackets, and tie-dye denim vests. All of these pieces work together with a slightly hip-hop vibe, a colorful break in neutral toned monotony.
