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.

The perfect skinny jeans require the perfect t-shirt. Once you establish this equation, it’s just a matter of the right blazer and accessories. We’re totally intrigued by The AllSaints + Not For Sale T-shirt CollectionRachel Zoe plugged it this morning and caught our attention. Not For Sale is a non-profit anti-human trafficking group, to which proceeds from these rad tees will go. You can do your part to prevent forced labor and human trafficking around the world while scoring something stylish for your closet. Win/win? We think so.

MiH Jeans Launches Second Exclusive Capsule Collection on Net-A-Porter


We were already stoked the first time MiH Jeans collaborated with Net-A-Porter on the Spring 2011 capsule collection, and the second time around has us revving up our e-shopping engines too. For Fall 2011 they’re offering luxurious silk, velvet and cord fabrications in autumnal shades of bronze, burgundy and navy. Founder and Creative Director Chloe Lonsdale, says “We really wanted to capture the essence of that chic gamine vibe and tap into the mood of the season, while also offering an approachable way to wear these trends.” You’ll find ’70s style high-waist trousers, flare legs, pleated skirts, fitted blazers, and other fall fashion essentials that really round out this smart and tasteful set.  ”I was particularly inspired by Julie Christie and Annie Hall; the understated sophistication of their uptown/downtown style that stood the test of time,” says Lonsdale.
