With just one look at the covetable bright blue reptile print jeans, we had to see what was up with Black Orchid Denim. As you may recall from their sultry Fall/Winter 2011 campaign, Black Orchid has a knack for raising the bar on sexy jeans. For Spring-Summer 2012, we notice a bit more of an eclectic mix of vintage wash looks and colorful prints (a girl likes to have options!), inspiring Boho style, Western, glam, rocker and some ethnic-tribal patterns.
Check out Black Orchid Denim on Facebook to stay updated and watch their new campaign video!

Denim Therapy’s founder Francine recently scored herself a pair of celeb-approved Black Orchid denim jeans in dark wash with a studded back pocket detail. Here’s what she had to say when she tried them on!
What was your first thought when you tried them on? Halle Berry wishes she looked as good as I do in these jeans!
Where/when would you wear these? Comfortable enough I can wear from day to night and always feel like a rock star.
How’s the fit? They’re low rise skinny jeans but don’t feel very tight which is great.

Black Orchid Denim takes us behind the scenes on their recent photo shoot for their Fall-Winter 2011 lookbook entitled “Voyeur.” Remember the eye-candy photos from our previous feature on Black Orchid’s Fall 2011 photoshoot? We’ve now got the video. Featuring a model whose smokey glances could burn a hole through the camera lens, she can certainly show the ladies (and gents) how good it feels to be in a pair of Black Orchid jeans, whether they were skinny ankle jeans, zipper jeans or metallic jeans. With Sade’s “Smooth Operator” setting the mood for the shoot, which takes place in and around a gentleman’s club, we see the model posing not only as a guest, but teasingly as a performer.
