From DL1961: DL1961 Premium Denim unveils its Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, which was shot against a denim backdrop by fashion photographer Sharif Hamza, and styled by Tom Van Dorpe. The campaign features models Tess Hellfeuer and Mathias Lauridsen, and highlights fresh, modern looks of head-to-toe denim. From dark, clean lines to sleek, buttoned-up styling, the campaign is a major departure from anything the brand has done before.
“This season we wanted to create a collection that represents the technological nature and sleekness of our denim,” said Sarah Ahmed, DL1961’s Creative Director. “We continue our mission to create ‘the perfect fitting jeans’ and are excited to unveil our Fall/Winter fit collection, which captures the premium, effortless yet signature style that DL1961 has become known for.”

From the time denim hit the market as functional, industrial uniforms to the moment skinny jeans became a staple in every woman’s closet, denim has always been a must-have. No closet is complete without a pair of worn-in, comfy boyfriend jeans — nor a pair of fierce dark wash jeans for days when you want to turn heads and take numbers. But it’s the celebrity denim culture that also fuels our love of amazing jeans. Seeing women like Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Kate Upton rocking our favorite brands in new and exciting (and sometimes totally off-duty) ways keeps us craving denim in our wardrobes. Harpers Bazaar takes a look at some of the ultimate jean queens of our current culture.
