3.1 Phillip Lim Designs Denim Capsule Collection

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.


See the full collection below.

Keep Your Wardrobe Bright This Fall With Unexpected Color Combos

Just because its fall doesn’t mean you have to throw color completely out the window! In fact, this season is all about color but with a big twist. Besides, with so many colored denim selections out there, how could you not get yourself into some bright hues? Okay, so we know you’ve heard of pattern clashing, but now its time to get into color clashing! Star by pairing two colors that normally wouldn’t “go” together, echo one of them in an accessory or a non-focal garment to add a bit of cohesion, throw in a third color (make sure to make it bright) for an extra bit of interest and you’re set! Sound complicated? No worries! We’ve put together two looks to give you some outfit inspiration! The key is to not go overboard—stick to one or two brights and throw in some vivid neutrals (not black and white) to keep things colorful.

How to wear unexpected color combinations for fall

1. Topshop nutmeg boyfriend blazer ($130) — buy it at Topshop.

2. Ksubi super skinny jeans ($170) — buy it at American Rag.

Denim Trend: Denim and Leather, A Match Made in Heaven





Alexander Wang sets the tone, two-tone that is, in faded denim with black goat skin leather sleeves for the coming season’s must have jacket.  Dress up washed out denim with black leather for a bad-ass combination of street chic that puts a little attitude into your swagger.  

The modern silhouette is a short full skirt or pleated pencil skirt in black leather topped with a faded denim jacket or vest.  Turn up the heat in some fun leather and denim two faced jeans and burn both ends in style. For a tough yet polished look pair some moto style jeans with a luxe black leather vest.  High/low fashion never looked better!

Balmain Denim: Get Inspired!




Straight from the runway of Balmain’s Spring/Summer 09 collection is a Sgt Pepper inspired jacket paired with distressed, slashed and acid washed jeans.  Cool, chic and playfully rock ‘n’ roll!  Perhaps a cue taken from the Beatle’s or could it be Coldplay? Nevertheless, this military/band inspired ensemble is truly a sizzling look for the spring season.

Can’t afford the Balmain price tag?  Most of us can’t, but we certainly can be inspired and get the look for less.


Balmain Ripped Jeans, $1,199.54      Buy it now

Balmain Military Style Denim Jacket, $3,633.50   Buy it now

Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain Studded Sandals,  $1,546.94   Buy it now

For a more authentic version of the military/band inspired jacket, I would scour vintage stores and ebay.  You will probably find a much more stylish and cheaper jacket such as this one at a starting bid of $9.99!
