We don’t know what kind of filter Kasil Workshop used to achieve this sun-drenched, Instagram-y vibe for their spring/summer 2012 lookbook, but it perfectly suits the southwestern styling. Navajo-inspired jewelry, chunky leather belts, moccasins, and crocheted tops adorn outfits grounded in denim. From high-waisted skinnies to classic denim cutoffs–we’re so down for being saturated in the warm mountainous brush wearing these outfits.

The thing we really love about the Kasil Workshop Men’s Fall Winter 2011-2012 Collection is that denim isn’t limited to just jeans. While the jeans come in indigo, brown, and dark washes, which are all great fall shades, the selvedge denim shirt and heather jean jacket are really stand out pieces thanks to their clean lines and crisp finish. The overall look is urban meets schoolboy, and it definitely works. It’s like that bad boy in class that was a straight-A student—the best of both worlds. And though it may not be denim, the heather blue jacket is a piece that will go great with jeans when your guy needs to class it. And lets face it, a guy can look good and then he can look really good, and that is exactly what this collection promises.

In the Kasil Workshop 2011-2012 Fall Winter Women’s Collection, we’re seeing dark wash skinny jeans being paired with your favorite tee and heels: the perfect mix of comfort and style! We’re always down for a good pair of skinnies, but the real question here is, are you read to welcome overalls back into your life? We are! Remember way back in the early days of summer when we said denim overalls were making a comeback (flashback here)? Well we are happy to say that they’ll be around in these colder months too! And to be quite honest, the pair from this line is our overall favorite…no pun intended. The wool patches and dark wash denim create a playful piece of clothing—and although you may not be on playground anytime soon, for those of you whose inner child likes to come out every once in a while, these are for you!

Already out from Kasil Workshop is the Fall-Winter 2011 denim lookbook, which features dark washed jeans in whiskered and straight leg fits that both men and women can appreciate. Kasil has evolved since the days when it was known as the It Jean with colorful back pocket embroidery: their use of a wool and denim blend in the collection lends a softness and warmth, almost like a cashmere sweater for the winter months. If you’re digging the sound of that, then feast your eyes on a few previews set to hit stores before the last summer barbecue!

We’ve officially snapped into spring mode! We’re all about light-wash jeans, sunshine, and anything you can wear to a picnic. So you can imagine our delight when KASIL, a line developed by the hands of fine artist David Lim, released images of their gorgeous, clean spring 2011 line for us to gawk over. With washes inspired by painting techniques and an acute focus on the perfect fitted jean, KASIL denim is a study in vintage vs. modern and what the contemporary customer truly craves: Style and function.
KASIL kicked off “KASIL Workshop” last summer with former Rachel Zoe assistant Taylor Jacobsen, a collaboration that has thus far given way to the Minx “ultra skinny” silhouetted jean you’ll see below. Designer David Lim is a firm believer in trends originating from the street and recognizes the power of bringing those trends into the line, and it plays through in his approachable, stylish creations.
A note from David Lim…
“Denim is alive! Denim fades, wrinkles and creases over time the more you wear. Random holes and rips that suddenly appear are all natural characteristics of your jeans. That’s the beauty of denim, each hole, rip, crease, wrinkle, dirt, or paint that has become of your favorite pair is a story that is told within your life.” —Designer David Lim of KASIL
Check out some of our favorite looks from the spring 2011 womens line! We’re especially in love with the Minx skinny jeans in “Cake” wash.
Kasil denim is currently available at Free People, Revolve Clothing, and Intermix. Stay tuned for what KASIL denim has cooking—including our exclusive Q&A with David Lim, which will follow shortly!
