From what we saw while previewing the Blank NYC spring 2012 line, the brand intends to keep it rock’n'roll with destroyed denim (we loved their super-short white shredded cut-offs) and even some whimsical, skull-shaped studs. They showed us a pair of black jeans with destroyed back pockets and ghastly little faces partially lining the contour (the missing studs are intentional and create the look of worn-in-beat-up). The cut-offs were adorned with boho belts, and in a more preppy turn of aesthetics, pastel denim was abound. Two picks we adored were the pastel denim pencil skirts. They also showed classics like basic washes in your standard styles and a covetable denim workshirt.
