Walking into the Raven Denim press preview was like walking into the perfect, cozy, weather-transitioning wardrobe. Refreshing paprikas, peaches, and nutmegs abounded in comfortable workwear trousers and high (but not too-high)-waisted skinnies. The cords, in perfect earth tones, had a beautiful sheen to them while the denim was studded with trouser-inspired details, like welt pockets and horn buttons. Coming from the label behind the coveted Mackenzie trouser, we weren’t surprised by all of the menswear details and attention to fit.
Creative director Ya-el Torbati (pictured below), who looked fab in her RD black skinny jeans and a cream colored printed blouse, chatted with us about what makes pants great (the flattering fit, of course) and how into wearing colors as neutrals she is right now (a girl after our own little Denim Therapy hearts). After seeing those peach colored chinos, we think we’re suddenly over black and blue.
