A fair number of people don’t venture into the world of denim overalls beyond OshKosh B’Gosh, but Chloë Sevigny has never been one to shy away from quirky-casual clothing in both her personal style and designs. Her latest nostalgia-tinged collection for Opening Ceremony includes a pair of short denim overalls, complete with a detachable leather bodice–definitely not standard workwear garb. So how do you feel about this update on the gardening classic? Do the leather and fit make it wearable, or are you still cringing with memories from your kindergarten days? Let us know!
Tenue de Nîmes and Travelteq’s new limited edition cognac-colored laptop bag is the definition of luxe, smartly constructed with clean lines and eight compartments (including one for a cigar!). But the best part of all? It’s not just a fabric one-note. Looking straight-on, you might think the bag was made entirely from vegetable-tanned leather, but you would be mistaken–it actually incorporates denim. The Japanese selvage chambray peeks out in a totally unexpected, but ridiculously cool way. There’s no way you’d blend into the sea of plasticky, canvas laptop bags that characterize most commutes!
