Take A Dreamy Oceanside Stroll With DL1961 Premium Denim


DL1961 Premium Denim recently released its Spring/Summer 2014 marketing campaign, meaning anyone who wasn’t already staring out their NYC office window at the falling snow, dreaming of summer, will now proceed to do exactly that. The new campaign features a serene and ethereal beach photo session, exploring a range of expressive poses. Shot by Boo George, the release pays homage to the lazy New York summer. Some shots remind us of romantic summer films, and honestly, we can’t stop playing this one over and over in our heads.

DL1961’s latest offerings are designed using technologically-advanced, lightweight denim fabrics with immaculate cut and sew detailing, so in addition to longing for beach weather, we’re craving a pair of these jeans too. See the full campaign below.

So you’re about to pack up and squeeze the most out of summer’s last month on the sandy shores? Us too! And while we’re in the midst of packing up the sun tan lotion, the shades, the super cute Italian bikinis et al for a weekend at the beach, we thought we would impart some packing wisdom on you guys too! Scroll for the denim lover’s guide to what to pack for the beach.

5 Reasons Summer Denim Is Amazing


Feel that insane heat and blinding sunshine? Summer’s on the way, and we’re counting down the reasons we’re excited to bust out our favorite warm weather denim for a season of super-stylish fun in the sun.

summer-denim-tie-dye

Note: We know, these tie-dye shorts are amazing. Grab them at Nasty Gal.

1. No other season permits this spectrum of neons, tie-dyes, and brightly colored jeans be set free from your closet and paraded down the boardwalk. Don’t hold back on your favorite colors, whether you favor pastels or saturated electric hues.

2. What’s scandalous in the spring is common practice in the summer. It’s the only season where your cut-off shorts can resemble a bikini bottom in shortness and no one will think twice about it.

3. DIY! Cutting, slashing, distressing, dip-dying and applique are just a few of the ways you can take a pair of jeans you loved all winter and turn them into a summer dream. Need some ideas? Try this DIY.

4. The simple perfection of the basic jeans and a t-shirt combo is amplified in the summer, and while we love fall layering, this no-fail formula that dates back to denim’s pop culture debut is still a staple in looking fresh and “classic cool”.

5. Finally, it’s great to know that while this summer’s outdoor adventures might harm your jeans—from hiking to camping on the beach, or even dancing manically at summer music festivals—we’ll be right here waiting to fix them back up for you.

Get ready for an amazing summer, and remember us if you need expert denim repair, tailoring, shopping advice, and all things denim.
