1. Tenue de Nîmes posted part 2 and part 3 of their “denim heaven” adventure in LA. The photos are definitely worth oogling.
Remember the super cute GUESS Summer lookbook we were hyping up yesterday? Well here’s the behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot, shot by Rony Alwin. Plenty of close-ups on covetable accessories, cute outfits, and on-set antics. New Yorkers will especially appreciate (or scoff at?) the sign on their office door.
Mih Jeans is getting dreamy this summer with a line of gorgeous effortless basics and rich colored jeans in their hallmark styles: “The light, dreamy, ease of summer. Simple and unforced dressing. Reflecting the way we live; or want to live.” They introduce three new silhouettes (the Oxford, the Miramar, and the Milan), some adorable scalloped edges, sheer tops, Indigo linens, and everything you need to add a bohemian-yet-luxe wardrobe in the warmest months of the year. See the lookbook and a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot here below.
DIMITRIS ZOZ is an Italian denim brand with a lot going on. They’re not a jeans company—they produce high quality denim products that extend far beyond the baby blue’s you wear on your legs. Their aim is fashion-forward design that survives the whims of passing trends and seasons, and they execute this through sportswear (workshirts, outerwear, jeans) accessories (tote bags, shoulder bags), a line of denim home furniture, and most recently, a collection of pastel shorts, covered in studs. You may not be ready to commit to a denim couch, but we can bet you’ll wanna rock these shorts in the spring!
Do you ever wonder what’s the story behind the design of your favorite jeans? Habitual, for example, is known for their Glory pocket—named for one of the eight points of courage for which the Maltese Knights follow. Their Glory pocket, inspired by the Maltese cross, which is shaped in the form of a Cross Patt?e, is both rock ‘n’ roll (but not too much) and booty-enhancing for the ladies. Habitual just produced a behind-the-scenes video to show denim lovers how they sew their back pocket together, and it certainly doesn’t look easy.
