Kate Moss Looks Smoking In Mango S/S 2012 Campaign


Kate Moss is nearing forty, but still has what it takes to keep us captivated (the sign of a true supermodel!). She’s in the new spring/summer 2012 Mango campaign, with smoky eyes, slick hair, and simple-yet-sublime style. While the only denim shown from the collection are a pair of blue jeans and pale denim shorts, we’re fans of the light, springtime styling. Because, um, pastel sweaters and airy white tees? Totally game. Especially when Ms. Moss is involved.

Check out a close-up shot of Kate Moss in jeans below!

Denim Dose: News & Links


Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and everything else we couldn’t help but share. Check out what’s happening (and totally not happening) in the world of denim now. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!

1. We know Kate Moss can more or less do whatever she wants, but we’re pretty sure this denim-on-denim almost-the-same-but-not-quite-the-same light wash ensemble is a big no-no. The black boots/black hat/black belt punctuation is pretty bad too. Come on, Kate!

2. We love the relaxed fit of the jeans in this super modern, urban and beautiful fall collection by Israeli brand Mandinka.

3. Hudson Jeans’ refreshing lookbook concept for spring 2012 is a stop-motion video comprised of many photos of a model wearing the jeans. Super cool (and we bet it saved them some money).

4. See what a good, worn-in pair of jeans looks like over at Dr. Denim.

5. This editorial in VS magazine’s september issue might have ridiculous ’90s hair that makes us feel like we’re in an overtly sexy episode of Saved By The Bell, but there’s a whole lot of perfectly distressed, gorgeous denim to oogle at.

Japanese Brand Laguna Moon Features Kate Moss For 5th Anniversary


Japanese brand Laguna Moon scored bomb shell newly wed Kate Moss for their 5th anniversary catalogue. Kate donned ripped up cut-off shorts and striped sweaters (not a far cry from what she wears every day on the streets of London, huh?) and some cuter asian-market targeted items like a double breasted pea-coat style cape. She rocks flare leg jeans in medium wash, the ultimate must-have cut for the season. While she looks lack-luster as ever in her stance, Kate really brings the clothes to life with zero effort. You can see the behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot at their official site. The full catalogue is featured here.

Window Shopper New York City: Paige USA


A stroll past the Paige windows in Soho, NYC (can you believe we were even out strolling in the midst of snow-pocalypse?) revealed a fun spread of celebrity gossip-esque magazines opened to pages full of the rich and the famous going about their business in Paige denim. Rockstars, actresses, and socialites alike were featured in the glossy window display–Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, and Gwen Stefani were just a few babes we spotted. We thought this tactic a rather clever way to keep the street cred levels high…

Kate Moss Lounges in Liu Jo Spring 2011 Campaign


A one shot photo from the Liu Jo Spring 2011 campaign—the queen of ageless genre-breaking sex appeal Kate Moss lounges clad in a fur-fringed embroidered denim jacket and a somewhat awkwardly clashing washed pair of jeans. The Italian brand prides itself on luxurious Italian-chic (you can check out their pre-spring collection for a taste), and Kate seems to do the trick in delivering the vibe. The photo, shot by Mario Sorrenti, leaves us eager to peep rest of the shoot!

Denim Muses


Well, it’s no secret that we all love denim here. We love to wear it, shop for it, dig through our closets for it–you get the picture. It’s also no secret that we love to look at it, especially in the many denim adverts we come across while thumbing through a magazine or browsing our favorite fashion sites and blogs. Oh, and we can’t forget those astronomically large and attention-grabbing billboards that showcase them on a major level. From high-end designer denim to the more moderately priced, there is so much time, effort, and money that goes into these campaigns that ultimately serve to entice us. But what is it about them that intrigues us, really?

I think most would agree that more often than not it’s the overall statement that does the trick. The lifestyle. The story that’s persuading us to fall in love–and sometimes in lust–with the picture, and ultimately the product, which in this case would be our guilty pleasure, denim. But beyond the punchy images, the dash of humor, irony, art, and not to mention sensuality, what is it ultimately that reaches out to us that makes the whole thing so memorable? Think about it, what would your reaction be if all you saw up on a huge billboard was a pair of jeans on a hanger?

Ultimately what completes it all and breathes life into these campaigns are the muses! The models, actors, and celebs that add that final splash of a allure.

Let’s face it, what would that iconic 1981 Calvin Klein Jeans campaign have been without Brooke Shields? “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.” Imagine, what impact would it have had if anyone else had said it? Of course we’ll never know, but it was the teenage Shields who brought in that je ne sais quoi.

Needless to say this campaign created a recurring theme for the brand, which went on to be one of the most commercially successful designer labels for thirty years, and I think it’s safe to say that it was in huge part thanks to Shields.

A decade later Klein set out to do it again. The muse this time: then 18-year-old Kate Moss. Moss appeared topless wearing CK underwear hitched over the waistband of her jeans. Also adding to this iconic campaign was the unequivocal star of ads, Mark Wahlberg who was better knows as Marky Mark at the time.

Moss has continued to be the muse for Calvin Klein to present day. The iconic 90s adverts and Moss changed the course of fashion single-handedly bringing in the age of grunge and what she’s come to be infamously known for, the era of “heroin chic” a look characterized by pale skin and jutting bones and an androgynous appeal. A look which to today is still sought after by many designers, and which is still used as a source of inspiration.

It’s safe to say that no one has been able to match the success that Moss has had, but one girl who had definitely given her a run for her title is none other than Erin Wasson. Not only does this native Texan have “the look” but she has the style and the attitude to have successfully earned her place as one of the hottest models in the world.

The original Model Off Duty, whose peculiar yet effortless style of sportswear meets grunge and haphazard taloring, has taken a hiatus from full-time modeling. Not to say she hasn’t been the muse for many a campaign. The Maybelline New York spokesmodel has worked with every major international photographer and fashion designer and has graced the cover of Allure, French Vogue, and The Facejust to name a few.  She was most recently in a multimedia campaign for denim brand William Rast in which she starred alongside co-owner of the brand Justin Timberlake. It must have been her Southern belle politeness and refinement yet devil-may-care attitude that landed her the part of Timberlakes love interest.

What’s so great about Wasson is that she refuses to just be another face. She may not be a full-timemodel anymore but that’s because she’s got a heavy hand in the creative side of the fashion world as a designer for RVCA  designing her own line of  low-key, chic grunge looks (including a denim range) rightfully called Erin Wasson x RVCA  proving that a muse goes beyond only selling you that one pair of jeans on a billboard. What really gets us and intrigues us about them is their passion and infatuation for creating this world and culture we all love called fashion. The jeans are just an added perk!
