3.1 Phillip Lim took tailored denim to a whole new level with a new capsule collection of denim separates. The set includes cropped jackets, tailored blazers, ankle-length pants, and a smart-looking denim pencil skirt to name a few. The styles are 12 in total and range from $195 to $895. The style of the shoot lets the denim shine in full, with the model’s face obscured by shades, cropped out, or turned away from the lens. For us, this is a refreshing return to what matters: our favorite textile.

It-girl Erin Wasson looks amazing in the latest campaign from Madewell, featuring spring styles we’re coveting hard. Fashion Gone Rogue reports:
“American model Erin Wasson lands the spring-summer 2014 campaign from Madewell, looking the very picture of casual elegance in the shoot photographed on location in the island nation of Malta. Benny Horne captures the blonde beauty in the brand’s denim-rooted designs with a laid-back attitude.

We posted a few weeks ago about the way skinny jeans almost ruined the American dollar—basically because US currency was being printed on special paper made largely from denim scraps provided by the denim industry, until spandex jeans became widely popular and the quality of denim scraps themselves with compromised in an epic way. Glamour posted a write-up on this same predicament, with an inside look at the way spandex denim changed …well, everything.
“Did you know that for the longest time—since the 1800s, in fact—U.S. dollars have been printed on a cotton-paper blend supplied by Crane—yes, the stationer? And, for the longest time, since the 1800s, Crane & Co. has gotten 30 percent of its cotton in the form of denim scraps from the garment industry!
But then, in the ’90s and ’00s, something happened in fashion that changed the money-making business forever. That something was spandex—and it started to make its way into nearly all mass-produced jeans in the United States.” (Read more)
