We’re Getting Revved Up For Japanese Brand Moussy’s State Side Launch


Okay, seriously—we’re huge Moussy fans. We’ve been following this Japanese sportswear brand remotely since 2004, having catalogues sent by our Japan-dwelling comrades so we could follow their fit-for-rockstars line of denim and separates. So imagine our excitement to learn that this brand is making its move to the US, and after their kick-ass FNO event, have already begun to make waves! Their Fall 2011 campaign features Abbey Lee Kershaw and a denim x fur combo we adore. Check out the exclusive video belowand don’t forget to Like Moussy NY on facebook!

Video Recap of #FNOatSaks by Doctrine Jeans


Let Doctrine Jeans take you back to #FNOatSaks! Relive the event frame-by-frame as Doctrine Jeans shows us some key moments at GQ Magazine’s “Authentic Denim” event at Saks Fifth Avenue—and Denim Therapy was there! If you are not already familiar with the brand, they are new on the market, founded fall 2010. Doctrine Jeans offer jeans for men and women who are more into the fit rather than glitz. Marked by clean lines and slim fits, this brand has come out of the gate strong. Subtle embroidery details, coated washes and use of selvedge on some jeans lends an understated elegance that is right on the mark for consumer demand.

Also look for The Denim Guy and Denimology, our social media hub partners for the evening. Special thanks: Video and social media hub at Saks was sponsored by Doctrine Jeans. For more information, go to Doctrine Jeans online.

Denim Therapy & 7 For All Mankind’s Fashion’s Night Out NYC


We had the chance to hook up with 7 For All Mankind stores throughout NYC for Fashion’s Night Out and do some hem-measuring, champagne-sipping, and customer greeting! We got to meet some of our blog followers and a hoard of loyal denim lovers, from Flatiron to Soho and over on West 10th Street too! Check out these snaps from our FNO experience! These are mostly from the 7FAM  Bleecker Street store…  but we also peeked around the corner at the Teen Vogue block party where Mary Kate Steinmiller was introducing musical acts and the roads were blocked by stylish wanderers. And stay tuned for our FNO denim street style gallery and video montage, coming up this week (we’re unstoppable!).

Fashion’s Night Out: L.A. Denim Party Snaps #FNOatSaks


Last night was an unbelievable Fashion’s Night Out event at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills!  As part of GQ Magazine‘s “Authentic Denim” event, Denim Therapy, The Denim Guy and Denimology were embedded in the trenches to seek out the industry’s top denim brands and stylish party people.  From AG Jeans to True Religion, Saks has proven to be the denim mecca for those on a pilgrimage to find the best jeans in the world.  As much as we want to share all the free swag being doled out (cocktails, hand-rolled cigars, craft beer, custom totebags, and more cocktails), we were thoroughly impressed (and amused) with all the denim-clad male model-staffers walking around, making sure everything was “alright” and practically feeding us grapes while we blogged.  We’ve got some highlights from the event here, in case you didn’t partake in the festivities!



It was especially nice to meet with and speak to many people who stopped by our blogger station.  Thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue Beverly Hills for providing the platform to communicate our love of denim.  Special thanks to Doctrine Jeans for giving us the blogger station.  Thanks to The Denim Guy for being our partner in crime once again!  Stay tuned for more of Denim Therapy’s Fashion’s Night Out coast-to-coast coverage.
