American-made denim brand Baldwin is launching a full fledged women’s clothing line, which will include denim (of course), knits, outerwear, ready-to-wear and more. 2013’s GQ’s menswear designer of the year Matt Baldwin is at the forefront of the development, allowing his 5-year-old brand to flourish as demand increases for product exactly like his: classic, fashion-forward, and made in the USA. More specifically, the line features black and white nights, high waisted jeans, and denim workshirts. See the full lookbook here.
We are all familiar with the thickly stitched horseshoe that each pair of True Religion’s comes equipped with, but we have to say their Fall/Winter 2012 lookbook is throwing us off into a new direction, and we like it. The brand’s latest lookbook exudes uncharted hues, vintage patterns and prints we are going to want to wear all season long. With different washes and leg openings this is a collection you’ve got to check out and most likely snag up more than one pair.
Whether it’s denim on denim or a dash of denim in an accessory, it’s fair to say we are denim hungry.

Check out their lateset lookbook with some of the newest denim trends that will leave you wanting these pieces in your closet.
Free People found the best way to make their clothes pop was by contrasting their colorful attire with beautiful land and landmarks. Models Martha Hunt and Michele Ouellet traveled with the team to Vietnam to shoot a magnificent lookbook for the brand’s March editorial. The calming landscape evokes a sense of endless pacifism and provides the perfect backdrop to bring the bohemian brand’s style to life.
Surrounded and swooning in colored denim, Thvm Atelier helps S/S 2012 come alive with their latest lookbook. With all shades of his and hers, the line projects an androgynous undertone leaving you to question: are those men’s or women’s jeans? The lookbook is full of vibrant denim that feeds off of its contrasting colored neighbor. Sharing is caring and it’s clearly an unanimous agreement in this stylish grouping of intertwined Thvm lovers.

PRPS Goods is a line for the everyday Joe started by Donwan Harrell of PRPS Japan and PRPS Noir line. The lookbook for S/S 2012 features light weight denim options that are not readily available in the other two lines. The line stays true to its rugged, worn and torn roots with carefully crafted selvage denim, but is ready to embrace summer’s heat with the new light weight fabric. The prices are lower and more accessible and the fabric is lighter and easier to wear throughout the year, will you try on some PRPS Goods denim this summer?
d.brand sent over a preview of their fall 2012 line (which we previewed up-close in the showroom recently), featuring desaturated, autumnal tones and some biker-esque looks for both sexes. Dark wash jeans, roughed-up textures, and rich colors like golden-mustard yellow and forest green are among the looks we adore. We went nuts over these yellow jeans already (which they offer for both men and women), but this lookbook preview really showcases sportswear they’re amping up: puff jackets, faux-fur collared bombers, cozy over-sized sweaters, and printed sweatshirts.
See men’s & women’s looks below:
We’ll have much more of the d.brand fall 2012 line on the way (including first-hand reviews), so stay tuned.
