Clothing label Babakul picked models that remind us of Jane Birkin and her It Girl daughter, Lou Doillon, for their Spring-Summer 2012 range of Hippie jeans, and we do mean 70s fashion redux. After all, Babakul is a French translation for “hippie.” This consistent collection of classic denim silhouettes—featuring flared wide leg jeans in high waists, soft denim shorts and a flirty denim dress—are sure to be great music festival fashion staples. We suddenly wanted to put on some Serge Gainsbourg and fiddle around with an acoustic guitar (even if we can’t play one). Babakul is simply killing us with their tranquil, laid-back styling, a product of the Los Angeles-based company founded by denim industry veterans who have together founded True Religion and Taverniti jeans.

“Like mother, like son”! Usually we are not into matchy-matchy looks (we prefer less cheese in the style department), but when you look at Kourtney Kardashian and her main little man, Mason, that is the undeniable exception. The two were seen walking hand in hand wearing identical outfits. KK is showing off her impeccable style and the ability to rub some off onto her “genes” with a Dolce & Gabbana blouse, Babakul vest, and Bleulab jeans. And she wouldn’t be caught without Christian Louboutin flats and an Hermes Birkin bag, would she? We wonder if Mason’s gear is as pricey as his reality star mom.
