Denim & Supply Spring 2012: Denim Jackets & Faded Jeans For A Statement


If you’re just getting out of your winter funk and easing into your spring wardrobe, thanks to the fair weather lately, perhaps you can take cues from Denim & Supply‘s Spring 2012 offerings of lightweight denim and chambray pieces that will go well with your go-to tee shirts or everyday jeans.  In the women’s collection, the Ralph Lauren heritage really shines through in the hues and the easy jeans silhouettes. For the men’s collection, the notable statement denim are the denim jackets. Cut a bit boxier in faded washes, the jeans jackets are the hassle-free layering companions.  The entire range is anchored by the softness that its vintage treatments offer; a classic way to wear spring fashions in an effortless looking way.

Make Your Own Music Video with Armani Exchange’s New A/X VIDEOMIX App


To cap off its 20th Anniversary,  A/X Armani Exchange created the A/X VIDEOMIX app, a fun music video-fashion show creator, which can be found in the bottomless pit of handheld games we know as iTunes.  The app for the iPhone and iPad puts you in the director’s chair as you produce your own music video.  Choose your model: Alessandra Ambrosio, Marlon Teixera, Francisco Lachowski, Milou Sluis and more; select your music track, backgrounds and A|X 20th Anniversary Collection looks, which feature a lot of denim styles.   To get an idea what cool runway show you can create, check out Giorgio Armani’s VIDEOMIX creation, “The SuperShow”.  It’s almost cool enough knowing that Armani himself fiddles around in iTunes.  Check out the gallery for some featured looks you can animate, shop and share.



After the show has been viewed, users can “like,” comment and rate A|X VIDEOMIX creations, which will permit special access to behind the scenes videos, footage of models preparing for the show and more.  To download the A/X VIDEOMIX application, go to iTunes online.

The key  is to take one bold statement piece and style it with simple and updated basics like cropped tees and a good dose of denim for a bit of cool edge.

Menswear Street Style: Denim Done Casual-Cool & Dapper


Photographer and fashion muse Blake Jacobsen never ceases to impress us with his always stylish and denim infused looks. We love that Blake can pull off everything from rockin’ grungy ensembles to this dapper and casual-cool look. His cuffed slim-fit jeans in a dark wash are perfectly styled with a navy blue blazer and pattern-clashing vest and tie. We love that this—what could be considered–dressed up look exudes a  young and fresh vibe. And its exactly because of those styling choices like the patter-clashing that it manages to stay of-the-moment.  The pop of color the camel braided belt adds is right on, as well as the cool factor the slightly pulled back beanie gives the entire outfit. All in all, an ace look it our book!

Catch more images of Blake’s look plus more on his Lookbook page and his blog The Style Manual.
