3.1 Phillip Lim Designs Denim Capsule Collection

3.1 Phillip Lim took tailored denim to a whole new level with a new capsule collection of denim separates. The set includes cropped jackets, tailored blazers, ankle-length pants, and a smart-looking denim pencil skirt to name a few. The styles are 12 in total and range from $195 to $895. The style of the shoot lets the denim shine in full, with the model’s face obscured by shades, cropped out, or turned away from the lens. For us, this is a refreshing return to what matters: our favorite textile.

Romantic Rights: April77 x Calla Denim Collaboration

Denim brand April77 and textile designer Calla Haynes collab’d recently to create a denim capsule collection titled “Romantic Rights”—a dreamy, rock’n’roll, textured rendition of your classic jean staples. Pieces include three pairs of low-waisted jeans (erk!), two denim jackets, and a sleeveless dress. The prints are stellar, but the price is up there. Jeans are $385, jackets are $465, and the dress is $365. Calla elaborates below:

“The brand, CALLA, is based on the idea of relaxed luxury, so it was important to me to propose jeans to my client. I asked April 77 to work with me because they are just honestly my favourite denim brand!  I wear them all the time. For this collaboration, we discussed mixing our two worlds together into a theme called ‘Romantic Rights’ – a vision that is both romantic and very rock and roll. For the print designs, I imagined a girl, in love, at a summer music festival and how she feels.  I tried to communicate the heat, the nature and the music in abstract patterns.” —Calla Haynes.

Colorful Collaboration: Notify Denim & Manish Arora Spring 2012

In case you missed this wow-factor on the runway during the spring 2012 fashion week season, Manish Arora mixed in some vivid denim jeans with their avant-garde sportswear.  Neon ombre, screen printed expressions of passion, and swirling psychedelic designs were just some of the elements involved. Of the eight original runway show designs, fifteen more were developed for a capsule collection release. Maurice Oyahon, founder of Notify says to Sportswear International, “We admire the work of Manish and his incredible know-how regarding colors and decoration.”

Expect to pay between $620 and $1,080 for a pair of these beauties. They’ll be available at Colette and L’Eclaireur, as well as Manish Arora’s e-shop. Hopefully at that price, they’ll fit better than the samples we saw on the runway.

Ready to zip: Uffie x Diesel

Electro’s it-girl circa 2006, Uffie, announced a collaboration with Diesel this past summer, summoning whatever skills she gathered in her short stint studying fashion design in Paris before her music career took off. The on-point leather and denim combo capsule collection was released in-store this month, and the look book reveals just how well this self proclaimed “damn-crazy brat” and Diesel’s brand DNA mesh.
