Denim Dose: News & Links


Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and inside info! Catch up on what’s happening and browse our personal picks for the most interesting what-not that turns up during our morning web crawl. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!

1. You might need to take a breather after watching this Joe’s Jeans video–it makes printed denim look hot, hot, hot (which, in case you didn’t know, it already is for fall).

2. In her latest music video, for the new song “Girl Gone Wild,” Madonna wears BLK DNM‘s Jeans 8 in DLNCY BLACK. Stretchy, high-rise, and danceable? Good to know we have some Material Girl-approved dancing denim options!

3. Diesel‘s “Our Glory” men’s denim collection launched last week in San Francisco, complete with a performance by PAPA and lots of awesome pieces made from vegetable indigo and shuttle looms.

4. Can’t wait to see this! J Brand is planning to open its first flagship stores in the next 15 months in New York and London.

5. Get your hands on David Bitton’s new premium denim line, aptly named DAVID BITTON, for clean, sophisticated (and oh so colorful) jeans.

We’d Rather You Wear Actual Jeans To Bed Than Jegging-Underwear


Diesel’s amusing atrocity, which you want to look away from but cannot (due to what appears to be defied laws of physics in the photos of a model wearing faux-jean underwear), is on sale at ASOS. We guess it’s on sale because you, like us, would rather be caught in a pair of raw A.P.C.’s between the sheets than denim underwear. Here, the texture, shape, fit, and general point of wearing denim is mocked by spandex and a cute scalloped trim. If you don’t think it’s awful, imagine taking someone home and when they strip down, you see… this. Where’s your mojo now?!

1. What if finding the perfect pair of jeans was as easy as getting a body scan? Acustom is the the denim line belonging to the latest brand promising custom jeans through this methodFitted Fashion. The Soho NYC design studio, aiming to be a platform for companies to provide custom clothing to their clients, will open in early 2012.

2. We love this post—confession of the worst jeans bloggers around the blogosphere have ever owned.

3. Diesel is re-launching their womenswear collection with a new design team, headed by Heikki Salonen. The line will be aimed at women ages 25-35 and see improved silhouettes. Sounds good to us!

4. Rockstar Denim opened a store in Paris, in the 7th District at 7 Rue de Grenelle, opposite the Christian Louboutin boutique. So, if you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and grab some cool denim and t-shirts.

5. Tired of looking at stick-thin girls in jeans, trying to figure out what will look good on your fabulous curves? Check out Girls With Curves for photos of a gorgeous gal above size 30, looking fly  in varied denim styles.

Is This The Ugliest Denim Bag Ever?


We love Diesel. Don’t get us wrong. And we usually jump all over Diesel jeans, their denim dresses, and their super cool urban accessories. But the latest release in the realm of totes & carry-ons from Diesel Island is iffy. And by iffy, we mean… ugly. Maybe it’s the shape of the bag against the akward contour, the handle bases being too close together, the awkward DIY-esque placement of the studs, or the feeling that too many ideas were crammed into one design. In any case, we won’t be buying this one. The line they belong to, dubbed “The Divina”, are available in three styles and fabrications, and $350—$440.

Sorry Diesel! We still love you!

Three Ways To Rock Denim Shorts Before Summer Ends


We’ll be honest, we wear denim cut-off’s all year round. With a cute pair of tights and some fresh kicks, you have no excuse to push your jean shorts into a “summer” box and stuff them under your bed. But it’s true that there’s a certain magic that comes with the season of Daisy Duke‘s, and while there are still a few humid, sunny days left in the August-to-September transition, it’s a good idea to get the most out of them. We’ve put together three outfits we adore for some summer denim inspiration. Go forth, and wear denim shorts!

1. Denim dealers Madewell featured music muse Eleanor Friedberger in Widelegger Jeans as inspiration for their readers to get stylin’ this fall. See all the ways she rocks these jeans.

2. Diesel is having a big sale on their spring & summer merch, ending August 31st. Now’s your chance to cash in on denim styles and more. Guys, grab a perfect fall denim jacket!

3. NYLON Magazine enticed its readers to sign up for My Habit, a site that promises “sought-after brands” and “membership-only prices” like every other flash sale site on the scene with a keen denim advert featuring vintage jeans and a gal who doesn’t wanna pay full price for them.

4. Selectism covers the NYC-based men’s denim line 4 Stroke at PROJECT LV. We like.

5. Denim Blog followed up with the men’s IRO lookbook yesterday, but are we seeing some of the same pieces as the women’s lookbook we linked to yesterday?

Men’s Designer Jeans at Park & Bond


Flash sale site Gilt Groupe has launched its first full-priced menswear ecommerce site, Park & Bond to cater to men who hate to shop. Actually, it’s for men who hate to go shopping and spend time rifling through racks and stacks at the mall. Think of it as an oldschool department store with the one person who will tell you what is hot and worth the money.   We also like the nifty advice section in which you learn how to achieve the perfect tie dimple.   Why we like Park & Bond: a strategic cultivation of mens denim brands from tried and true A.P.C., Diesel and AG Jeans to more indie denim labels like Naked & Famous, Nudie and Simon Spurr.   Expect the brands to change with the seasons, but we’re quite okay with the current jeans offerings.

Gilt Groupe launches Park & Bond, a new full-price menswear ecommerce site.



Go to Park & Bond online for more information.

Autumn Hits Diesel Island! See The Fall Campaign Here


Summer may have reached its peak, but at Diesel Island (where the residents, who recently wrote their own constitution, enjoy non-working holidays 365 days per year), things are just heating up for autumn/winter. The newest campaign features sultry shots of island residents (models include Josh Beech, Andrew Smith, and Jonas Kessler) in new denim styles like the top stitched work shirt, comfy knit sweaters, and tailored denim dresses & skirts with chic industrial edge. As the residents adapt to their developing society and the changing weather, Diesel lets us in on a little hint re: the future of this society (which makes us think the entire campaign may be an irresistible metaphor: “We’re f**king it up.”
