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.

Upon the release of Alexa Chung‘s newest AG Jeans collection, she made a statement that allowed all hardcore skinny jeans fans to breath a sigh of relief… that is, if they count on It-girls to call the shots in their wardrobe. In an exclusive post for Refinery29, she shares the inspiration behind her collection, as well as her feedback on the future of the skinny fit. When asked what she would say to those who have declared the death of the trend, she responded:
“I would say they have too much time on their hands. Who sits and thinks about what’s over; it’s all next, next, next for me. Also, I still wear skinny jeans, so I’m probably not the right person to ask. You have to dress for your shape, and I look better in that cut, so I don’t think they’ll die in my wardrobe.”

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.

Who says celebs always have to go designer? Beyoncé was recently snapped stepping out of a limo in New York City last week, wearing a pair of light wash H&M skinny jeans. To our delight, we’re pretty sure a few of us own the same pair! Obviously Bey makes these look like a million bucks, but they’re actually under $50.
