Luxe Fabrics & Rich Colors In Agave Denim’s Fall 2011 Collection

Last time we talked Agave Denim we were giving away two gorgeous pairs of jeans to two lucky readers—but the truth is, whether you win them, buy them, or otherwise miraculously acquire them, owning a pair of Agave Denim Jeans is an experience not to be missed. Designed by husband and wife team Jeff and Lauren Shafer, the brand has what you want: comfortable, chic, luxurious, eco-friendly, on-trend pieces that fit great and go with everything in your closet. We had a chance to stop by the showroom to discuss the fall and holiday collections, as well as get a quick sneak peek at spring 2012!

The fall 2011 line is Lauren Shafer’s first full spectrum collection after her stay-at-home-mom hiatus. A total fit fanatic and a skilled pattern maker, she made all of her own first samples this season—talk about hands on! She chose to work only with hand-picked luxury fabrics, creating a line with 17 different fits of jeans, jeggings, and trousers in both indigo and novelty fabrics, including a gorgeous indigo cord as an alternative to fall denim. Key new fall fits include the “Listo” and “Fortuna” slim fit and higher rise trouser and the Fusta riding jegging (which you see a detail shot above). To pair with these pieces, she designed both fashion and basic knit sweaters in Supima cotton and other cotton blends, as well as some killer leather jackets.

More points for Agave? They also offer dark denim in super soft, stretch fabrics that use less water in the wash process through an “Ozone washing”. Check out the full fall 2011 lookbook for women below!

In the men’s line, the focus continues on fabric and fit—most fabrics employ 98/2% cotton/elastane to give comfort but retain shape.  Jeff Shafer considers designing an art and works similarly with strictly hand-picked fabrics from boutique mills in Japan, Italy, and the US. He created new finishes and vintage-esque washes in a variety of fits, expanding also into a broad range of super wearable luxury Supima cotton knits and t-shirts, as well as leather jackets and some covetable merino wool sweaters. One of his favorite styles in the fall line are vintage black and colored yarndye denim in muted Autumn hues.

Agave Gold Label also offers limited edition selvage jeans, numbered and signed. This season, it’s the “1930’s rinse” selvage from Cone White Oak, which has the look (but not the feel) of raw denim. Check out the full fall 2011 lookbook for men below!

[nggallery id=786]


Finally, we were treated to a preview of the spring line, which included lots of gorgeous colors taken from the landscape of Mexico and the Sea of Cortez (more on that later), applied to fresh fits and looks we can’t wait to wear. Stay tuned on this one, denim-heads—we’ll show you the mood boards the designers created to inspire this spring collection!

Wrangler Premium Denim Marks Their Territory For Fall 2011

We’ve established that Wrangler is exponentially rising as a “cool” premium denim brandespecially overseas—and their latest lookbook has some more evidence to this point. With a hint of attitude that reminds us of Diesel marketing (without the pro-stupid slogans and overt sexual liberation), models pose against stone greys and cement backdrops. Denim-on-denim combos are recurring, with mixed wash styles on both genders (we love one combo that pairs cuffed light wash jeans with a medium-dark wash workshirt and knit vest). Plaids in blue and red color ways, vintage-inspired sweaters, leather jackets, and furry hats are styled into the shoot effortlessly—soak up some of this FW’11 fashion inspiration! A bit more on the concept of this lookbook below…

Mark your territory is the FW11 season theme: Wrangler urges its clientele to customize their own jeans. To give each pair a life of their own. Mark your territory extends Wrangler’s brand signature. We are animals. Like animals we are compelled to mark our space and our belongings, to leave our stamp. Tagging, tattooing, branding: these are primal animal impulses. In FW11, we challenge consumers to ‘Mark Their Territory’.”

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.
