Our favorite shoot from the latest CR Fashion Book is this one, featuring Sibui Nazarenko photographed by Billy Kidd. Can you guess why? The denim layering is dead-on for fall 2014, utilizing classic denim jackets (the kind everyone has in their closet) alongside cozy knits and cold-weather favorites. We might be summer-dreaming right now, but we’re already soaking up inspiration for fall.

Naked & Famous‘ Mens Spring/Summer 2012 line is sticking to its roots with authentic, top-quality, raw denim, but while increasing the options you have to get your hands on it. They have taken their skinny, mid-rise, and tapered cuts and released them in new colors such as red and wine, constructions, and surfaces. So now you can really find the pair of jeans that is best and most comfortable for your body, and still know that you’re wearing some of the most rare and unique denim, straight from Japan. What we’re really jealous of are the raspberry scented low-rise jeans—we mean, amazing denim that smells amazing too? Yes please. Besides the colored denim, they also are offering slim-fitted button downs to patch their red denim palette, along with a crisp, dark-wash jean jacket which is a definite must-have if your guy still hasn’t caught on to this classic trend yet.

Jeans are the epitome of model off-duty style, not only for their ease and capability to rough it through casting calls, but also because they are the perfect clean sartorial palette. New Australian magazine Stonefox captures that casual cool with this striking black-and-white editorial. Donning simple tees (or none at all), ripped and ragged cutoffs, denim jumpsuits, jean jackets, and more, Dempsey Stewart looks fresh-faced and subtly sexy–always a winning combination.
