MiH Jeans Launches Shibori Dye Collaboration


MiH Jeans recently launched an exclusive shibori tye dye collaboration with LA based shibori specialist Niki Livingston on their website. Shibori dye, one of the most beautiful fabric treatments we’ve ever laid eyes on (and a favorite of the festival-going crowd) is an ancient Japanese dye technique used to give cloth a three dimensional form by folding, stitching, and twisting the material before it is sumberged. The result, as you can see, is gorgeous.

“The MiH design team and Niki worked closely together to develop shibori-dyed pieces that reflect MiH’s British heritage and Niki’s laid-back, Californian attitude. After experimenting firstly with denim, we then chose tees, shirts and scarves to become the canvases for our indigo art. Scarf prints were influenced by water and shadows whilst tees and shirts were tied to create spots and stripes with ease and spontaneity.”

A Denim Discovery: 3rd & Army Men’s Jeans #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


At Project NY and then again at Project Las Vegas, the men’s denim brand 3rd & Army seduced our eyes with three bold styles that exude rock’n'roll and sex appeal. It’s no coincidence that they make an impact at first glance: Industry authority Matt Atkinson (who founded the brand in September 2012) and all associates in the super-collective have worked for major US brands throughout the years. The relatively new project (100% made in LA) packs a powerful punch thanks to its experienced design and marketing team.

The brand DNA is taken from the quintessential California lifestyle. “Our collection speaks from our life experiences through the doors of 3rd & Army. Our clothing is an expression and a combined statement of classic music, fine art, vintage fashion, and a modern lifestyle in an original way,” says the brand. We expect only great things from these guys. Check out our favorite pieces below.

California Dreaming With Nasty Gal’s Latest Lookbook


Nasty Gal‘s latest lookbook (thought they’ll probably have a new one posted by the time we finish typing this, because that’s how they roll), focuses on three basic summer concepts: cut-out tops, denim shorts, and the timeless American flag motif. Featuring a model who looks like she just rolled out of bed into a lazy LA kind of fabulousness, it addresses the question of whether or not the basic lazy day uniform should include sexy black knit separates with a little more negative space. The answer is yes, by the way.

David Kahn’s Spring 2012 Lookbook Is All About Color & Texture


The new lookbook for David Kahn Jeans has two notable themes: color and texture. The brands serves up California-friendly styles that style-hungry New York women won’t be able to resist, from floral print cut-off shorts to patch work jeans and a range of colored skinny jeans (available in both pastel and vibrant, saturated hues). While they’re riding the alternative-denim wave, there are also plenty of more modest, classic options like dark wash skinnies, medium-wash cropped jeans, and un-intrusive flare legs.

See more below.

Matias Denim Spring 2012 Lookbook Has A Laid Back Attitude That Is Pure West Coast


Matias Denim is anything short of California cool in its latest  lookbook. The brand keeps things totally LA for spring with poolside fun, American flag bandannas (and shoes), and a wide selection of casual denim separates perfect for the Cali heat! We love the mix of distressed stone wash jeans in blues and greys with laid back 70s influences like oversized stripes, wide-brimmed hats, and fringe. Definitely perfect for weekend getaways, festivals, and soaking up the West Coast heat. Don’t worry everyone, spring will be here before you know it!

Kut From The Kloth Spring-Summer 2012 Is A California Dream


Kut From The Kloth is showing us how we can have fun next summer in colored jeans. And if you’re not in the mood for colored denim, some cropped, wide leg and faded jeans in cool and breezy fits will make great companions for soaking up some rays, whether it be in a SoCal beach or at a backyard barbecue. We also love the versatility of this jeans collection. You can be sporty, preppy or cocktail party elegant. So if you’re planning out your post-winter wardrobe shopping, we think Kut From The Kloth may be a good place to find what you need in yummy colors and fits.
