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.

How To Rock This Moscow-Based Blogger’s Fall Denim Style

We’re crushing hard on Moscow style blogger and personal shopper Alexandra Osina (of Styled By Alexandra) ‘s fall denim look right now. She mixes denim shorts, jackets, and skirts with unexpected pieces and to create quirky, flirty autumn ensembles that get awesome marks across the board. Check out her recent outfits below and get a quick lesson in her unique approach to denim styling.



The look: Sweater with medium-above-the-knee denim skirt

Where to wear it: Cute look for the office and a meeting over coffee with a client.

Tip: Hem lengths are key in pulling this off. The skirt should fall above the knees (but no shorter) and the sweater should fall just below the waistline (but not shorter). The fullness of the skirt keeps things casual and chic.

The Look: Denim sequined shorts with denim workshirt & tights

Where to wear it: A great look for shopping and hanging out with friends.

Tip: Switch the playful coat for a sharp blazer for a night-friendly look.

Resort Round-Up: Denim For Your Get-Away

While resort season is generally known for clothing conducive to poolside lounging and exotic vacations, when denim is involved it tends to be in the form of super wear-able styles  and a dominance of light wash. We also saw some trends pop up, like wide legs and printed boyfriend jeans. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite blue jean cameos in the resort 2013 collections.

4 Ways To Wear A Long Denim Skirt

We know it can be tough to get comfortable styling items beyond the standard denim jacket and skinny jeans, but it’s refreshing and fun to branch out and work in some silhouettes as the seasons change.

Chic Denim Separates & A Beach House Palette For Henry & Belle Spring 2012

Denim Therapy recently dropped by the Henry & Belle showroom to see the spring 2012 line and were greeted with an instantly pleasing palette of sea foam blues, cute fashion separates, and an anticipated range of chic basic denim styles in medium-to-dark wash. The inclusion of carpenter loops (remember those?), oversize boxy pockets, soft pleats, and front-ties took the line beyond basic sportswear into more versatile, street-chic territory. We fell hard for denim tops, printed with short sleeves and strong necklines, and we approved of an increasingly modest back pocket design (if you’re a fan of Henry & Belle you’ll notice that the pocket branding emphasis has been on a fashion-forward decline). The overall feel of the line was very spring, very seaside, very relaxed and comfortable while still stylish as all get-out.

80%20 Designer Ce Ce Chin Talks Shoes, Jeans & Dream Collaborations

If you recall, we’re obsessed with 80%20 shoes. We ran into designer Ce Ce Chin at Coterie last September and got a sneak peek at their newest super-cute kicks. After going on something of a splurge for our shoe collections (hey, we gotta do something to ease the summer-to-fall transition), we had the chance to ask Ce Ce a few questions about her line, her denim preferences, and the future of 80%20! Check it out below.

8020 shoes ce ce chin QA interview

Denim Therapy: What style/cut of jeans do you envision being worn with the fall collection?

Ce Ce Chin: Skinny jeans and colored denim looks great with our Bex shoe, which is kinda like an Orvis meets Chanel quilted Look (see above). Also, all of our short boots will look great with denim cut off shorts, tights and colorful or knee high patterned socks.

DT: What are YOUR favorite pair of jeans?

CCC: Siwy denim fits me great—great flattering feminine cut—brings out the curves in me! And I have an amazing Denim skirt from Junya Watanabe, like Spring 2002 or something, that is practically couture.


DT: We love that! Do you have any favorite/least favorite denim trends right now?

CCC: I love the high-waisted MILF 70s style denim- when the pant legs are really long and I wear my KIP platforms, I look really tall.

DT: What would be your dream collaboration?

CCC: There two artists that I really admire: the filmmaker Miranda July and the “knitting bandit” Olek. Miranda created a very touching shoe scene in her first film, “Me and You and Everyone We Know“. I admire her personal style and quirky sensitivity—I’m definitely thinking about her work and her most recent movie, “The Future” as I move forward with Fall ’12. And Olek, well, she does these crazy crochet pattern sculptures. Could be cool for some Winter boots!

DT: Street style and style blogs are huge in the industry right now as a source of inspiration, influencing the high-end labels rather than vice versa. How much does street style influence your designing?

CCC: Oh street style is, and has always been very important to me. While I will watch the runway reports, I gather most of my inspiration by witnessing the girls on the subway, or at places where creative people gather, like art openings or performances.  Recently I’ve been scoping out the footwear at my yoga studio.  There’s a place in front of the yoga class where everyone kicks off their shoes. I see quite an interesting mix in this shoe pile!

DT: Clever! Can you give us hint about what’s next for 80%20?

CCC: We’re planning a pop up store in March 2012 for the Spring ’12 collection.  Scouting locations now….

Huge thanks to Ce Ce Chin for spending some time with DT! Stay up to date on 80%20 Shoes via facebook and twitter, and shop their current collection online now.
