Très Adorable! APC Enfant x Little Fashion Gallery Team Up For Children’s Denim Line


Remember Stella McCartney’s children’s clothing line for Gap? All of us pouted because we weren’t a foot shorter and twenty years younger and therefore could not get our hands on those amazing military jackets and tulle skirts? Well, this is another one of those times when you’re going to be jealous of children’s clothing. A.P.C. collaborated with Little Fashion Gallery for an adorably stylish line of kid’s denim, which features faded washes translated into shorts, jeans, and bags that have the same casual nonchalance of the ever-stylish French brand, despite serving a 2 to 12 year age range. Were you this cool as a tot? I don’t think so.

1. G-Star Raw is about to make a little bit of West Coast history before 2012 by opening up the first denim shop ever on Rodeo Drive:

“Luxury denim brand G-Star RAW will be the first denim brand to open its doors on iconic Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. G-Star, known for its innovative and cutting edge style in the world of denim, will host an eclectic night of performance, art, music, film and fashion for this special store opening on December 6th, 2011.”

3. Tobi is having a huge online denim sale on brands like Current/Elliott, BLANK, 7 For All Mankind, Genetic Denim, and more. And you won’t believe how many styles they have.

4. Agave Denim is introducing new core fits for men, in classic straight, relaxed trouser, and relaxed straight (with a variety of great washes—but we’d expect nothing less from Agave).

5. A.P.C. and Anthropologie have collaborated on a house & home quilts capsule collection. These aint yo’ mama’s country home quilts! …Well, okay, they’re pretty close.

Spring Favorite! A.P.C. Madras Pleated Bermuda Short In Denim


Excuse us for thinking ahead, but as soon as the weather turns cold enough to make us forget summer ever graced us with excuses to wear really short shorts and filmy knit tank tops, we tend to daydream via e-retail about how we’ll be dressing when the sun comes out again. This time, it’s the A.P.C. Madras Pleated Bermuda Short In Denim, which provides the perfect balance of lightweight whimsical dressing and soft-tailored statement. It’s 100% cotton and retails at $150.

Buy them at Mohawk General Store.

Men’s Designer Jeans at Park & Bond


Flash sale site Gilt Groupe has launched its first full-priced menswear ecommerce site, Park & Bond to cater to men who hate to shop. Actually, it’s for men who hate to go shopping and spend time rifling through racks and stacks at the mall. Think of it as an oldschool department store with the one person who will tell you what is hot and worth the money.   We also like the nifty advice section in which you learn how to achieve the perfect tie dimple.   Why we like Park & Bond: a strategic cultivation of mens denim brands from tried and true A.P.C., Diesel and AG Jeans to more indie denim labels like Naked & Famous, Nudie and Simon Spurr.   Expect the brands to change with the seasons, but we’re quite okay with the current jeans offerings.

Gilt Groupe launches Park & Bond, a new full-price menswear ecommerce site.
