“Know what’s a real bummer? When you wear a hole right into your favorite pair of jeans, rendering them unwearable. Enter FRANCINE RABINOVICH, whose brilliant company, Denim Therapy, can restitch any hole with matching thread (about $7 per inch). They also undertake all sorts of other useful enterprises, like inserting maternity bands, monogramming waistbands, and replacing zippers. Not only has Rabinovich encountered every conceivable type of jean brand out there, but she also has unfailingly great taste. (Check out her denim-centric blog, here.) To that end, we tapped her for her 10 favorites brands (and her preferred fits).”
In the market for a pair of jeans to party in? Denim Therapy’s founder Francine test drove a pair of Bleulab Reversible Denim in a gorgeous metallic-champagne hue at NYC hotspot Le Bain recently, to see if the jeans would pass the New York nightlife test. The style in question? The Detour Legging in gold membrane (reversible to reveal a grey leather jean on the other side). And guess what—they did! She styled them with a chic knit top and killer metallic necklace to bring the look full circle. Check out what she felt about the fit and function below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? First thought was, I can’t wait to go party and wear these jeans! (And so I did). They are so comfortable and yet look and feel so cool!
Where/when would you wear these? They are reversible so you can wear day and night and style them in so many different ways. I can literally wear them to Le Bain (pictured above) or for a Sunday brunch.
How’s the fit? It’s great. They’re skinny and sit above the waist. They don’t have front pockets so has been a bit of an adjustment… but hey, who needs those pockets when you can wear them with a chic bag?
