Kate Moss is nearing forty, but still has what it takes to keep us captivated (the sign of a true supermodel!). She’s in the new spring/summer 2012 Mango campaign, with smoky eyes, slick hair, and simple-yet-sublime style. While the only denim shown from the collection are a pair of blue jeans and pale denim shorts, we’re fans of the light, springtime styling. Because, um, pastel sweaters and airy white tees? Totally game. Especially when Ms. Moss is involved.

Italian denim label Meltin’Pot is launching an exciting new campaign to accompany their SS12 collection, titled “Tune Into Summer“. Quote the label, “Wherever you are, no matter the weather or what part of the world you live in, the summer mindset is within you. It’s like rediscovering your sun kissed pictures from last summer, and reliving those moments amongst likeminded friends. You’re instantly filled with the fun, joy and laughter of those moments. Your free spirit takes over, and you’re ready to take the world by storm.” We dig it. See the full campaign image set & video below.
Details on the SS12 line: Original workwear designs are updated and revisited in a more than a vintage attitude: these work inspired jeans recapture the original magic of denim and the “good old days”. The Yacht Master collection is about a way of life with the look of a boyish, new, modern dandy, who moves with style and sophistication in an urban backdrop. A trailblazing pirate type who plays between city streets and exotic spots, he’s a trendsetter in versatile clothes: Jeanswear leads to sartorial experimentation.
The Meltin’Pot woman’s collection is an exclusive and ultra-feminine interpretation of the Meltin’Pot man’s denim world, perfected in fit and washes however for women and infused with cutting fashion edginess – giving an alluring appeal to the women’s collection this spring summer.
The website (which launches on the 23rd) has a brand new look and feel for SS12, and is full of “new season energy”.
Stay tuned, we’re announcing an awesome Meltin’ Pot giveaway very soon!
Moussy keeps up the good pace for spring 2012 with a new round of rocker-chic denim separates, leather jackets, and general badassery that fits nicely into any wardrobe. Abbey Lee Kershaw models the campaign once again, photographed by the notorious Terry Richardson in a high contrast display of studs, star print, and acid wash. Abbey displays her ability to make non-glamorous activities look exciting, like standing in a bathroom and eating fast food. We’re digging it.

If you’re looking for ideas for a sexy Valentine’s Day gift, take cues from TEXTILE Elizabeth & James. Make a playful and sexy fashion video. TEXTILE produced a video for Spring 2012, in which model Abby Brothers gives us a private fashion show, which starts out with her stripping off her clothes and lounging around in her TEXTILE branded underwear. Eventually, she does slide her TEXTILE jeans back on effortlessly. You might wonder whether the Olsen twins were spinning off a new intimates collection, or that this video looks familiar somehow, because you’re onto something: the video pays homage to iconic denim advertisements of the ’90s.
With just one look at the covetable bright blue reptile print jeans, we had to see what was up with Black Orchid Denim. As you may recall from their sultry Fall/Winter 2011 campaign, Black Orchid has a knack for raising the bar on sexy jeans. For Spring-Summer 2012, we notice a bit more of an eclectic mix of vintage wash looks and colorful prints (a girl likes to have options!), inspiring Boho style, Western, glam, rocker and some ethnic-tribal patterns.
Kellan Lutz, star of Immortals and Twilight Saga, was spotted in Venice Beach, California, on the set of the Dylan George and Abbot + Main Fall 2012 Campaign photo shoot, along with campaign model Kate Upton. Kellan is seen wearing an Abbot + Main Zip Hoodie, Mocha Burnout Tee, Henley and Dylan George Denim. As you may recall, Abbot + Main’s debut campaign featured some steamy photos of Kellan and model Anne V. Involved with every phase of the collection, Lutz teamed up with Dylan George founder Danny Guez, to design the third collection of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear line for Abbot+Main, which features a Venice, California-inspired collection of t-shirts, knitwear and loungewear.

French actress Clemence Poésy is the new campaign face of G-Star RAW, debuting in Spring-Summer 2012. You may have seen her in Harry Potter and TV’s Gossip Girl. Introduced at Bread & Butter Berlin, Poésy is featured in the campaign along with Vincent Gallo. Poésy ”reflects the characteristic brand DNA: she is a confident, strong and in control woman without compromising her femininity,” says Shubhankar Ray, G-Star Raw’s global brand director. At Bread & Butter Berlin, G-Star Raw’s stage was stylistically unkempt, as models struck their poses and strutted around wads of crumpled white masses. Check out the images for a peek!

For Spring 2012, True Religion is back with an overhaul of their denim range and Website. The company retains much of its brand DNA (along with its Western influences) in new back pocket stitching, but the focus is now on understated jeans with subtle details. The campaign features models Alicia Rountree (in the Wanderer), Tallulah Morton (in the Bohemian), Julia Dunstall (in the Maverick), and Brad Kroenig (in The Rebel). Check out the video for a behind-the-scenes peek. ”The objective was to take a different, intelligent, politically relevant, culturally relevant and thought-provoking approach… we want to reach the consumers that engage because of curious content,” said Jeff Lubell, founder and CEO.

While the rest of us are working on our New Year’s resolutions and staring at our vision boards, Hudson Jeans took their 13 Principles (“The Hudson Way of Life”) and decided to share it with the world. They produced a video to illustrate their guiding principles: Think Freely, Do It Better Together, Be Amazing, Exercise Your Creative Mind, Do Good, Be Passionate, Take Chances, Move to Your Own Rhythm, Believe You Can, Be Humble, Keep Your Word, Stay Young at Heart and Enjoy the Ride. If you don’t already have a personal mission statement, then you might just find inspiration here. Furthermore, they’ve launched their new 13 Principles Sweepstakes in which for the next 13 days (launched on Wednesday), they will give away 13 pairs of jeans to reflect each principle. Plus, you get a chance to win one year’s worth of jeans. We knew we couldn’t keep the news to ourselves. Go to Hudson Jeans on Facebook to enter!
