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.

Kendall Jenner was spotted at Coachella, rocking out in the grass with her Free People Renee high-wasted denim shorts (editor’s note: these are under $100—get the look!). She seemed more than festive in her imaginative festival style ensemble, featuring some tribal jewelry, a corset top, and a duster jacket that flowed around her as she danced. Snaps of our favorite It-girls dancing is a nice departure from paparazzi snaps of them shielding their faces and running to their cars, aint it?

Jeans and rock’n'roll have gone hand in hand since the dawn of the genre. From Mick Jagger‘s iconic denim jackets in the 60s to the shredded denim uniform of Nirvana in the 90s, denim has been the material of choice for some of the most famous rockstars in history. Levi’s Unzipped blog takes a look back at some of these stars, and their most iconic denim moments: the history of denim and rock’n'roll.
From Unzipped: The legendary grunge outfit Nirvana recently received its official induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame commemorating the 20th anniversary of the band’s iconic In Utero album. The band, in addition to producing universally lauded rock songs, was also known for making “angst” mainstream and defining an entire lifestyle of music—right down to the plaid and denim-addled wardrobe.
But Nirvana wasn’t the first rock act to don denim. Take a look at other royalties of rock who wore jeans while making music history. (See more)

From the time denim hit the market as functional, industrial uniforms to the moment skinny jeans became a staple in every woman’s closet, denim has always been a must-have. No closet is complete without a pair of worn-in, comfy boyfriend jeans — nor a pair of fierce dark wash jeans for days when you want to turn heads and take numbers. But it’s the celebrity denim culture that also fuels our love of amazing jeans. Seeing women like Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Kate Upton rocking our favorite brands in new and exciting (and sometimes totally off-duty) ways keeps us craving denim in our wardrobes. Harpers Bazaar takes a look at some of the ultimate jean queens of our current culture.
