Garance Doré is singing the aesthetic praise of MiH Jeans’ color block skinny jeans this week on her blog, and we couldn’t agree more. The chic-yet-playful take on average denim is basic, but interesting enough to take a regular sweater-and-jeans outfit to the next level. Patchwork jeans and two-toned jeans are a huge trend for spring, so prep your closet. Add some metallic jewelry and a pair of killer heels, and you’ve got yourself a perfect NYFW look. Which, by the way, is juuuust around the corner…
Grab a pair of MiH Jeans’ color block skinny jeans asap.

Well it looks like Sugarhigh + Lovestoned is ditching its usual beach babe and ultra-hippie vibe this upcoming fall season. Instead they’ve taken to the big city with a seriously unapologetic rebellious rocker attitude and equally rockin’ wardrobe. Vintage-inspired rocker tees and low-rise jeans plus boho-inspired jewelry—Peace, love, and rocksteady indeed! And can we just point out that for being a fall collection this is so totally summer-worthy. We do like to stay ahead of the game…Perhaps we should get a head start?

In February, Frankie B. Jeans will mark its 12th year anniversary, and we thought it would be fitting to talk to Daniella Clarke, the founder who started out DIYing her own jeans as a teenager by ripping out the waistbands. As a pioneer in the denim industry, we really wanted to find out what she’s up to now (besides being sought to resurrect the 1970s denim brand Dittos Jeans) and how much of a denim freak she is. We also found out she is a bit obsessed with Kate Moss and lots of male musicians wear Frankie B. jeans.
Daniella Clarke, Founder of Frankie B. Jeans
DT: So Daniella, do you own a lot of jeans?
DC: I think I have about 300 pairs of jeans but it’s kinda [sic] silly because I seem to rotate the same 5 pairs on a daily basis.
DT: What is the longest you have worn one pair?
DC: Yikes! This is an embarrassing question, but I’m going to be honest. Sometimes I wear a jean about 4-6 times before I wash them! I just love the way my jeans fit and don’t want to wash the fit out of them once I wear them in. I also don’t wash them often if I’m trying to preserve the dark indigo wash.
DT: Are you working with any new textiles or technology?
DC: I really love this new denim were working with called Black Gold. It’s a coated denim; often coated denim can be stiff but this is so soft and just pretty with a bit of a shimmer.
DT: What do you think of the 1970s vibe hitting this year?
DC: I love the 1970s trend… I’m a huge fan of the flared and wide leg – so sexy! My personal favorite for sure! I also really love those terracotta colors from that time period and hoping to incorporate that into the line in ways of colored denim.
DT: What advice can you give when shopping Frankie B. jeans?
DC: We are not as low as people say and our fit is amazing. If you’re looking to accentuate a small derri?re, try one of our Rosie Bow butt skinny’s. We run pretty true to size.
