Ombre jeans are the perfect answer to your spring style dilemma: how do I update my look?

Eugene Is My Middle Name Delivers Winter Brights & Light-Wash Denim


We love the “less is more” design philosophy, especially when it comes to jeans. It’s always refreshing to find a pair of  jeans free of bells-and-whistles, that emphasize beautiful fit, carefully selected fabrics, and artisanal washes. Eugene Is My Middle Name is one of those brands, and their fall/winter 2012 lookbook features some gorgeous brights for the cold weather season. If you’ve been hesitant to wear light wash denim, white jeans, or metallics in the past, these styles should help you tip the scales in the other direction.

Colored denim, printed denim, coated denim… all of these are exciting and coveted developments in the ever-expanding choices the denim industry has to offer as of late. But one trend we’re all over? Gradient jeans.  Also called ombre, they provide 2-in-1 color that fades in a chic and subtle way from the hip to the ankle.

An Exclusive Q&A With Doctrine Jeans Designer Teresa Sung


Denim Therapy had the opportunity to interview Doctrine Jeans last year, when this denim brand was just starting out.  Flash forward a year: Doctrine is still here, and they have matured and are offering innovative and covetable jeans with classic and trendy-setting washes that are certain to be on everyone’s wish list for the holidays, come Fall 2012.  We caught up with Doctrine Jeans’ Head Designer Teresa Sung for a quick update on their Fall/Winter 2012 collection.  Read what’s new about Doctrine Jeans in their Sophomore year.

An Exclusive Q&A with Doctrine Jeans 2012

Denim Therapy: We love that Doctrine don’t jump on every denim trend in the industry. How do you get inspired each season during the design process?

Teresa Sung: Each season is different. But generally, I would start by seeing the runways for the season ahead and try to absorb trends and details first before starting on our seasonal collection. After the overview of all those information, I have to sort thru what works for our Doctrine and what doesn’t. Many times, I would have to look into our archives to see the particular era and icons to get more inspirations.

DT: What are some denim trends you DO love right now?

TS: I love the fact that denim is getting vibrant with its treatments not only with colors and prints, but in pieces like in patch works and embellishment as well as using novelty laundry techniques in discoloration and clouded effects.

DT: We love the one-piece looks in the fall (the denim overalls and jumpsuit). How do you envision women styling these pieces?

TS: Oh yes, overalls/jumpsuits tend to be made more vintage and work wear inspired.  But I saw them from a different angle for this season. Why not sexy and sleek?  You can style it with soft white blouses in overalls to maintain its chic look as styled in our Look book.  It embodies sex appeal with its flare legs fitted through thigh, showcasing elongated leg shape. You don’t even need to style the jumpsuit except to wear it; flaunt it!  And you may want to add a few of your favorite bangles.


DT: Do you have any favorite style bloggers or fashion influentials right now?

TS: The Sartorialist, Jack & Jil and Streetpeeper are just a few influentials that I’m obsessed with now. I really appreciate their keen eyes toward fashion reality from different parts of the world.

DT: What’s next for Doctrine Jeans?

TS: I would like Doctrine Jeans to grow not only in the States, but internationally as well.

Ombre Skinnies & Coated Denim At The Doctrine Jeans Fall Preview


The Doctrine Jeans showroom preview blew us away with new styles in both women’s and men’s denim for fall 2012. Our favorite styles for women included a spectrum of coated ombre skinny jeans (think colors like berry, bronze, and coal). Two other stand-out pieces for the ladies were the jumper and dark wash overall. We got another up-close glimpse of the men’s Teflon coated maroon jeans that we first saw at PROJECT (which are now being produced in two additional colors). Check out the line below!
