Agave Denim Men’s & Women’s Fall 2012 Lookbooks

Agave Denim released their men’s and women’s fall 2012 lookbooks, featuring their usual spectrum of rich colors in innovative fabrications. What sets this release apart is that it’s Agave’s 10th anniversary, for which the husband and wife design team drew inspiration from the 1960s and the Olympics in Squaw Valley, CA.


Some highlights in the men’s collection include the Nihilist slim fit, Harp and Maverick limited edition selvedge styles, and a new bootcut, aptly named Bootist. Fabrications include kaihara and kuroki denim, as well as non-denim luxury fabrics like “Wolf Canvas” (100% cotton italian yarndyed canvas with rinse finish) and “Mad Plaid” (100% Italian moleskin  with rinse finish).

Some highlights from the women’s line include the Tomboy skinny boyfriend fit jean, the slouchy Peace Corps trouser, and the Sophia high-rise pencil skirt. Fabrics are overdyed in a fall color palette with hues like Picante, Hunter Green,Tapioca, Pewter, Otter, and Rose dawn. An innovative indigo denim that has the look of raw, but a more comfortable hand, has also been introduced.

Nudie Jeans Fall 2012 Men’s Denim Preview

We stopped by the Nudie Jeans Co. showroom recently to preview one of our favorite Swedish denim brands—a brand that embodies both modern Scandinavian culture and classic utilitarian elements in denim and sportswear. Their unisex jeans have made the full transition into 100% organic territory, from denim fabric to pocket linings, buttons, rivets and labeling. It’s all raw material. The iconic orange stitching compliments an array of beautiful Japanese plaids with rich autumn hues for the cold season, all of which is further backed by a line of accessories and the exponentially successful backbone collection.

Artisanal Jeans At The Raleigh Denim FW12 Preview

We love Raleigh Denim, that’s no secret. The eco-friendly, community-enriching brand with limited runs of specially crafted denim have set themselves apart in the market. But aside from being sustainable and aware, their jeans are gorgeous. We had an up-close look at the fall/winter 2012 line at their recent NY press preview. We browsed raw selvedge jeans for men and women with contrast stitching made from Cone Mills White Oak Denim, individually numbered and signed, along with a range of other fabrics in rich autumn hues. Check out our favorite picks below.

Denim To Covet From 7 Fashion Brands at #NYFW Fall 2012

For New York Fashion Week, we pulled together seven fashion brands that drove denim to new levels and offered inspiration on what should be made in denim.  We were so in love with some pieces that were not quite denim, that we threw those photos in for your ogling.  We think you’ll forgive us.

[nggallery id=1069]

Band of Outsiders—We’ve known for a while that the fashion houses have been fixated on Great Depression and Dustbowl era fashion, and there’s still a bit of this here, but with a mix of glam and luxury fabrics (we count suede and fur collars), there’s a sense that the sun-kissed models in workwear-inspired denim jumpsuits and white-collar attire, offers hope that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.  Images via

[nggallery id=1068]

Diesel Black Gold—From red to blue denim, not only has Diesel gone gaga over color, they’ve gone Jackson Pollock with their side-tie pants and cropped jeans.  With a definite homage to an 80’s fashion trend, the paint splashes and printed jeans serve as a contradiction to their progressive leatherwear.  We couldn’t escape the sense of a Mad Max meets Highlander effect when everything was pulled together.  Images via

Gilded Age Fall-Winter 2012 brings a sophisticated version of motorcycle culture. [nggallery id=1064]
Gilded Age
—Stefan Miljanic brings motorcycle culture to the stage for fall, except with more refined touches in layering pieces and clean lines, even in their colored and gray jeans.  Images via GQ online.

[nggallery id=1065]
Nicholas K—Designers Nicholas and Christopher Kunz have made her collection all about draping and furthering the Depression era vibe utilizing desert hues: models wore flapper wigs and Silent Film cosmetic work; Western touches were seen throughout.  Hints of denim made its way in, including a hooded denim shirt and an homage to the denim jacket.  Images via Mercedes Benz Fashion Week online.

[nggallery id=1066]
Rebecca Minkoff—Who knew she was also an apparel designer?  Known largely for her handbags, long-time followers have looked forward to her return to clothing design, her first passion.  We think her bright legging pants may as well segue into denim leggings.  Her apparel debut at New York Fashion Week featuring an opening performance by Theophilus London, made a big splash.  Images via

[nggallery id=1067]

Concept Korea (V)—In an effort to bring visibility to South Korea’s top fashion labels, this collective was born.  In it’s second year at NYFW, Concept features five top Korean labels.  Most notably, the design duo Steve Jung and Yoni Pai (of the brand Steve J & Yoni P) with collaborations between Topshop and 10 Corso Como (Seoul) under their belt, they make denim part of their repertoire. Images via WWD and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week online.

[nggallery id=1062]

Kelly Wearstler—As if to defy anybody who had any reservations about 80s fashions, this brand has committed wholeheartedly to the styling of acid wash jeans and stirrup leggings.  Even if the ultra high-waisted acid wash zipper skirts aren’t your thing, you might just have a crush on the jackets.  Images via

#NYFW Moments Of Style: What Denim-Heads Were Wearing

Go to any show at New York Fashion Week and you’re sure to run into a crowd of extremely good looking people. No, we don’t mean the models. We mean show-goers. Stylish fashion-followers, editors, bloggers, and photogs crowded Milk Studios, Lincoln Center, and various show locales to see the Fall 2012 collections unveiled, and while they were gawking at the clothes, we were gawking at them. Here are a few of our favorites.

Levi’s Fall 2012 Global Collection Photos & Video #nyfw

DT attended the Levi’s Fall 2012 Global Collection Preview last week, witnessing an array of innovative exhibition-style representations of Levi’s brand DNA and current projects. Exhibits included a table full of utilities that represented the lifestyle of the commuter and jeans trapped in giant blocks of melting ice—the latter, a representation of the Water<Less effort.

A multi-tiered showing of the line included a presentation backdrop of models “getting dressed”, and a foreground runway show. The collection was a simplistic and sharp modern rendition of standard Levi’s principles, with crisp dark-wash denim, tailored tops, pop-colors, and a distinct kind of sex appeal that occurs because of clothing (rather than in its absence). Check out our photos and video of the event below—watch for the end of the runway show, which caps off with a live banjo performance.

We had a chance to interview Raleigh Denim Workshop designers Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko during their NYFW Fall 2012 presentation, and they let us in on their minimal carbon footprint, innovative fabric contents (ever hear of fabric made from recycled TV dinner trays? Neither had we!), and how they’re aiming to create the backbone of your wardrobe. Check it out below.

d.brand Fall 2012, First Look For Men & Women

d.brand sent over a preview of their fall 2012 line (which we previewed up-close in the showroom recently), featuring desaturated, autumnal tones and some biker-esque looks for both sexes. Dark wash jeans, roughed-up textures, and rich colors like golden-mustard yellow and forest green are among the looks we adore. We went nuts over these yellow jeans already (which they offer for both men and women), but this lookbook preview really showcases sportswear they’re amping up: puff jackets, faux-fur collared bombers, cozy over-sized sweaters, and printed sweatshirts.


See men’s & women’s looks below:

We’ll have much more of the d.brand fall 2012 line on the way (including first-hand reviews), so stay tuned.
