Behind the Scenes at Acne Womenswear Resort 2012


Acne‘s Jonny Johansson is always thinking outside of the box, even when he puts his models in it. The video below takes you behind the scenes at Acne’s Womenswear Resort 2012 fashion show, featuring a giant black frame which looks a bit like an enormous iPad screen (yes, our view is now distorted by iDevices). Models stream through this giant box which serves as the focal point of the fashion show. A minimalist setting complete with pastel blue runways, Acne’s Womenswear Resort 2012 fashion show featured some yummy Otterpop pastels and popcicle orange and yellow against its requisite neutrals. With shredded denim shorts, figure-hugging skirts and even a jeans jacket in the mix, styled with tousled and teased-hair models, everything looks very über chic Stockholm street style.

Last minute denim diy on Acne jeans for the Womenswear Resort 2012 fashion show.


Acne Studios continues to churn out interesting collections with the goal of not following what’s going on in the rest of Europe. Acne Creative Director Jonny Johannsson provides some insight into this collection. If you watch carefully, Johansson is interviewed during the hectic fashion show set-up. Were they trying to show off his set, or did he simply get in the way? At any rate, they put Jonny in a box, which is so unlike his goals at Acne.

Video directed by Marius Crowne. For more information, go to Acne online.

Street Style: High-Waisted Shorts + Denim Shirt = Casual Class


Combining trends can be tricky, but this London blogger risks it all and comes out (dare we say it) winning! We’re talking high waists and denim workshirts meeting in the middle. Literally. By throwing on a Zara denim work shirt, a a pair of Acne Jeans high-waisted shorts, and a chic Acne Jeans long strap shoulder bag, this two-tone outfit is simply timeless. The understated silhouette and color combo mean there’s plenty of room to experiment further with accessories and shoes. Looks like merging two hot trends aint so hard after all!

An Exclusive Q&A with Court Denim & Fall 2011 Lookbook


Here Ye, Here Ye! We are gathered here today to introduce to you New York City based, Court Shop very own label, Court Denim. They offer a range of washes in blues, black, white and gray  in high-waisted style jeans (and only high-waisted but not too high). The fits for the skinny, straight, boot and belle cut are amazing for all hip fashionistas to the everyday moms looking for a bit of clean extra coverage– think good riddance to muffin top. Read on for our exclusive interview and we will let you give us your verdict.

court denim- high waisted jeans

Denim Therapy: Lets start from the beginning. How did you know you wanted to be a designer?

Court Denim: I always wanted to be a designer. I have a degree in fashion design and a background as a juniors & denim designer. As retailers since 2004, with our downtown store Circa Now and Court, specializing in vintage & designer denim, we saw a void in the market for affordable designer denim with an emphasis on clean, classic, natural waist styles.

DT: Are there other denim brands you consider your immediate competition? How do you differentiate yourself from the hundreds of popular denim brands afloat right now?

CD: We consider our competition to be Ksubi, J Brand, Acne. We are different as we specialize in hi waist fits. Most brands offer one hi waist style per season.  We offer natural waist fits in skinny straight bell or boot in tons of washes every season. In both 5-pocket and novelty fits. Also, because we are partnered with our manufacturer, we are able to offer premium, designer denim at about half the price of our above named competitors.

DT: Do you have any pre-designing rituals?

CD: We do a lot of travelling throughout the year and gather inspiration everywhere from the streets of nyc and paris, to vintage ads and jeans, art, music, design and it all finds its way on to our seasonal inspiration board.

DT: Describe the person who represents your ideal target customer—the customer you have in mind when you’re planning a collection.

CD: Cool, comfortable, confident. The downtown fashion girls love our hi waist styles, as do upper east side moms looking for a little more coverage.

DT: Can you give us hint about what’s next?

CD: For spring 12 we will continue our classic Americana feel with modern take on 60′s and 70′s influence. Think Jane Birkin.

DT: What would be your dream collaboration? Any plans of that in the future?

CD: Our dream collaboration is Alexander Wang!  For current spring 11 collection, we collaborated with LIPS Jeans re-releasing their cult favorite Zoe jean. For fall 11, we are working with organic dyer Audrey Louise Reynolds to offer one of a kind hand dyed denim in limited runs.

DT: What are the most popular washes/fits in the line? What are your favorites, and how would you style them?

CD: Our staple piece is the HI waist skinny. Most popular washes are Black OD, Blue OD and indigo rinse. We love seeing them with a feminine vintage inspired blouse or your favorite tee, with lots of Pam Love jewelry. We also love and have done extremely will with our hi waist bell. Bells are great with this seasons wedges (and we cut them long specially for this reason).

DT: Do you have any favorite/least favorite denim trends right now?

CD: We don’t like over branding or too much “stuff” on our jeans. We like clean classic fits and washes. With us all the attention is in the fit and washes rather than any tricks. We are loving bells and straight legs, but always end up in our hi waist skinnies!

DT: Street style and style blogs are huge in the industry right now as a source of inspiration, influencing the high end labels rather than vice versa. How much does street style influence your designing?

CD: Very much so. NYC girls are a constant source of inspiration for design and style.

DT: How many pairs of denim do YOU own?

CD: Personally I own about 100 pairs of jeans. Lots of vintage archives, Judi Rosen, H&M, Deisel, J Brand, Grey Ant, Acne and lots of Court!

DT: Favorite celeb wearing your denim?

CD: Musician MNDR. She’s been buying up every wash for her tours with Mark Ronson!

An Exclusive Q&A with Superfine Denim


As one of the leading pioneers for the skinny jean silhouette (as you’ve seen in their Fall 2011 Lookbook reviewSuperfine has made it’s mark on denim history. The Superfine woman is modern and styled (and a little bit rock’n'roll). The collection covers a range of sexy, dark washes: think black, grays, and deep purple. Accelerating Superfine’s chic turn towards a full ready-to-wear collection is a focus on jerseys and silks as well as tons of wool that builds on the strong jeans section. They’re basically covering all of the bases. We had the chance to talk jeans with Superfine’s designer, Lucy Pinter

 

Denim Therapy: Lets start from the beginning.  How did you know you wanted to be a designer?

Superfine: I was styling and used denim all the time. I desperately wanted a clean rock’n'roll skinny jean for my work but no one made them. I was taping bootlegs and trying to retouch out the distressing. I decided to try to make some myself.

DT: Are there other denim brands you consider your immediate competition? How do you differentiate yourself from the hundreds of popular denim brands afloat right now?

Superfine: Not really. I think we are different. Superfine is what I would call a “fashion denim based line”. Not just jeans but a full ready to wear collection with the focus on denim and fashion pieces in the jeans section. Our image is very different to any other jeans lines I see. Maybe Balmain compares but price point is completely different and the rest of their line is not like ours (glitzy dresses etc). They do a great jean though. Acne could compare but i think the fashion jeans we do are really only available from us. I like Acne a lot actually but it’s a different brand.

DT: Do you have any pre-designing rituals?

Superfine: Not really. I begin research alone and only work with one guy on the sketches. If I’m honest, research usually begins in my pijamas on the computer in bed. Once the idea is clear, I send my product manager in Italy and the designer I work with on sketches all images for a mood board, after this, we work between my studio and the factory in Italy on fabric allocation and design. It’s a small team of only 3 including design and production management.

DT: Describe the person who represents your ideal target customer—the customer you have in mind when you’re planning a collection.

Superfine: The girl is little bit fashion, a little bit rock”roll, a little bit chic. The boy is the guy that likes this kind of girl. The Boy is not “too” fashion but likes to look cool.  Someone who understands clothes and appreciates details. But now it can be anyone. I get excited seeing anyone in my clothes regardless of how they wear it if I’m honest.

DT: Can you give us hint about what’s?

Superfine: In SS (in stores now) you have softer colors in strong ideas. A hippy girl with attitude. For AW, its much more tough. Lots of black, grey, dark purple. It’s a “gypsy punk” collection with more wool than ever before and a strong selection of pants and jeans.

DT: What would be your dream collaboration? Any plans of that in the future?

Superfine: Right now I would love to collaborate with Isabel Marant. All round dream collaboration would be Rick Owens. I’ve pretty much only worn Superfine and Rick Owens for years and years…no plans right now but I do love collaborating so watch this space.

DT: What are the most popular washes/fits in the line? What are your favorites, and how would you style them?

Supefine: The “adventure” jean has been our number one selling jean for three seasons now. It has a slightly low crotch, twisted seam and elastic insert. I personally like it with jersey tops with volume but a fitted jacket to nip in waist. It gives a great silhouette. It’s also great rolled up in summer with a heel to give a slightly fashion chino feel. Our fashion pieces with leather have also sold well – mostly in skinny styles. Worn best with boots, cool oversized distressed jersey tees and tailored or biker style jackets.

DT: Do you have any favorite/least favorite denim trends right now?

Superfine: I don’t think I ever really think too much about trends. A skinny jean will always be good regardless of trends. I must confess to being a little “over” the legging though. Bring back denim I say!

DT: Street style and style blogs are huge in the industry right now as a source of inspiration, influencing the high end labels rather than vice versa. How much does street style influence your designing?

Superfine: Maybe subconsciously more than I know. I think now I am living in Paris, while the vibe of the label is really London, it is probably more chic now than it was before.

DT: How many pairs of denim do YOU own?

Superfine: I would be afraid to count!

DT: Favorite celeb wearing your brand?

Superfine: Kate Moss
