Karlie Kloss Stars In This Frame Denim Spring Ad


Supermodel Karlie Kloss laced up a pair of roller skates to star in the Frame Denim Spring 2014 ad campaign, complete with 70s inspired bell bottoms and romantic wavy hair. This ad comes as a follow up to her collaboration with the brand in 2013. Says Fashion Gone Rogue, “The American model is the epitome of seventies chic in a pair of flared denim pants with a white asymmetrically cut bodysuit. Karlie trades in her signature short crop for a longer ‘do in the black and white image.” Yep, we’re in love.

MiH Jeans Spring 2014 Has Us Longing For Sunny Days


Our intense longing for spring began yesterday with our printed denim post, but now that we’ve caught a glimpse of the MiH Jeans spring lookbook, we’re head over heels and ready to leave this winter weather behind. Aside from looking like a blast, the shoot is packed with spring fashion we’re coveting, from super wide leg jeans to overalls and shibori dyed tops.

MC Reviews The Fidelity Denim Koro Flare In Nautical Blue


DT blog editor Michelle Christina reviews her second pair of Fidelity Denim jeans (the first being the Ace Skinny Jean in Ginza Black) and her second pair of flare-leg jeans since junior high (the first being the MiH flare-leg Marrakesh in Reed). Scroll to find out whether these dark-wash beauties pass the comfort, fit, and wear-ability test!

Check them out below:

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

My first thought was that they’ll be needing a quick hem job via Denim Therapy’s hemming service! But my second thought was “these are more comfortable than sweatpants!”

Where/when would you wear these?

Despite the extreme comfort, they have the DNA of denim, so they’re perfect for lounging but ideal for dressing up with a silk blouse & some baubles. I’m really into the idea of transforming them into a nautical look with some sailor stripes and my anchor earrings.

How’s the fit?

In general they’re a great fit—comfortable and flattering. I might have them taken in a bit above the knees where there’s some excess to maximize the silhouette. I wore them all weekend and I haven’t experienced any permanent stretch in the fabric. After my love affair with the Ace Skinny in Ginza and this new denim crush’o'mine, I think Fidelity is becoming a new favorite brand.

Denim Therapy Asks: What Were Your First Favorite Jeans?


You don’t have to be a denim-head to remember your first pair of jeans. Usually they’re the pair you’ve had for the longest time and have the most damage — the jeans you never want to part with. We talked to Nate, Brooklynite and denim lover, about his very first pair of jeans — green denim and corduroy bell-bottoms. See what he has to say about how he wore them to the bone and how he wishes he’d kept them so Denim Therapy could come to his rescue, nearly thirty years later.

Babakul Brings Hippie Jeans Back For Spring 2012


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.

Babakul conjures up Jane Birkin style for their Spring-Summer 2012 collection.

Court Jeans Spring 2012: It’s All About High Waisted Daisy Dukes & High Waisted Jeans


For Spring 2012, Court Jeans wants us to wear short denim shorts and be embraced by high waisted jeans.  You may have seen the trend on cropped tops, so the high waisted jeans will be a great complement to your street style look.  We are loving this extension to the 70s trend, because of the Daisy Dukes and Farah Fawcett appeal.  We’re also loving the nostalgic touches throughout the collection: the star print shorts (very Wonder Woman TV serise) and the Joanie shorts (a nod to the ”Joanie Love Chachi” TV series?); and the vintage washed high waist bell bottoms.

Court Jeans Spring-Summer 2012: It's all about the high waisted Jeans.

An Exclusive Q&A with HA-67 Denim


Denim brand H.A- 67 is the brainchild of Michael Mechaly, former Brand President for Sacred Blue and Coil, with a unique mix of vintage and contemporary edge. If you want a pair of jeans that look “right now” but are still hinting towards classic retro styles, you can turn to this brand. H.A- 67 was inspired by the infamous “Summer of Love” movement that took place in San Francisco’s Haight and Ashbury district in 1967. H.A-67 has the style details and washes that will remind you of vintage, while the fit keeps the sexy silhouettes of today. Read on for our exclusive interview, and stay tuned for an upcoming giveaway on Monday!

ha-67 denim

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

HA-67: I came to the US about 10 years ago to work for my uncle on the brand Blue Cult, about a year later I was heading up my own division Sacred Blue, I started working closely with the wash, design, and fabrics and became very passionate about designing.  A few years later I left the company and knew I was going to start my own brand.  In 2008 H.A-67 was born………

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?

HA-67: Diesel and G-star.  We differentiate ourselves by mixing up the vintage wash and style details with today’s fit.  H.A-67 is the best quality and price combo for today’s market.

DT: Do you have any pre-designing rituals?

HA-67: Yes first I source fabrics and cut about a million legs to wash up and see what fabrics call out to me.  Once I have narrowed down my choices I start working on all my wash development first and then I begin the style research.  The wash has always been my big interest so I love to play with techniques and tones so this is what I spend most of my time working on.

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

HA-67: My target customer is the woman and man, 20 to 50 yes we want to include the older customer because everyone ages but that doesn’t mean they lose the desire to look hip or to follow the trend.  When we work on the collection it’s to cater to that age group but to their own since of style.

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

HA-67: Fall Winter 2011 we have all new branding – back leather patch with logo engraving and front woven label with USA Flag is a great touch to add back with the vintage washes we do.  We have a variety of both basics and fashion bodies. Key styles are the Boy Scout – slouchy drop crotch for both and women (we did this in denim and canvas which was a big eye candy at Project) , Cargo- for men and women in both denim and coated denim.  We are offering our men’s slim and jegging for women in coated fabric top seller for us.  Lastly we did our original straight legs in selvage but again with a twist coated selvage offered in both 5 pocket and the Brett Buckle Back Raw which is another Top sellers.

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

HA-67: Selvage med used in 5 pocket straight, dirty sand in canvas for men and women slouchy skinny, stardust coated denim for men and women in slim/skinny leg.  All styles are very versatile you can wear them very causal or dressed up it depends on the customer’s style we cater to all.

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

HA-67: Favorite trend the return of the flair and bell bottom for women, for men has to be the drop crotch and destruction washes. Least favorite is a jegging because you are limited sometimes to the amount of wash technique you can do

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?

HA-67: A lot we have customers worldwide and as you know the fashion trends of France are different to the Trends of the US so we always have to make sure we check out the street style for all countries to get our customer the right product.

DT: How many pairs of denim do YOU own?

HA-67: My whole closet is full of denim I could not tell you how many pairs I own but never enough.

You can check out the H.A-67 denim styles on their website .

Top 5 Denim Picks From Adam Lippes


Fashion label Adam (by 2007 CFDA darling Adam Lippes) is not exactly known for its collection of jeans, but we were delighted just the same to see an on-trend and sophisticated collection of bell bottoms and high-waisted wide leg jeans.  Like many of Adam’s resort-friendly and jetsetter-like dresses and separates, the vintage-inspired jeans are cut for the modern woman who prefers a more tailored look (frontal pintucks and flap pocket details).  We are also digging the tulip denim skirt, a beautiful alternative to the classic jeans skirt.  We sincerely hope the trend for denim continues, by a denim expansion in the menswear department.

1.  Adam Seamed Bell Bottom Jeans ($225) – buy it at Adam.

2. Adam by Adam Lippes Cuffed Denim Shorts ($140) – buy it at YOOX.
