1. Say what? Turns out scratch-n-sniff jeans are actually a thing, courtesy of Naked & Famous Denim. For $150, the men in your life can wear denim covered in raspberry-scented micro-capsules that release when scratched. Yum, yum.

2. Workers specializes in vintage-inspired reproductions, and their latest collection includes a denim tote that was inspired by a pair of Hercules overalls. It’s unexpected, and pretty excellent.

3. Gisele Bundchen looks smoking in the spring/summer 2012 Versace Jeans ad. Sure, she’s topless–but we don’t mind!

4. Wrangler has a new campaign video showcasing its youthful spring/summer line. Watch out! It might give you vertigo.

5. With the help of model Krystal Glynn and filmmaker Taylor Steele, denim brand OneTeaspoon created this visually haunting short film of a girl who encounters a denim-wearing clan in the Australian forests.

9 Pairs of Jeans To Add Some Edge To Your Summer Look


When you stray from the path of generic blue jeans, most people imagine jumping right into the bottomless pit of “denim couture” (ie: opulent denim wedding gowns). But beyond your regular medium-wash, there is a happy medium of styles that can give your look a quirky edge without feeling overboard. Below are nine unconventional pairs of jeans we scouted on Yoox.com that you might consider befriending for a summer of decidedly different denim style.

1. We wish these would lose the rhinestones, but overall the idea of overlapping, faded, colorful international money printed on denim is pretty awesome. Parasuco International Currency Jeans ($118) – buy it now at Yoox.

2. Flower children may have sported intense floral embroidery all over the surface of their denim affects, but these stone-wash jeans have a feel that’s more ”art nouveau” than “free love”. D&G Floral-Applique Jeans ($225) – buy it at Yoox.

3. Not entirely against the grain of the white denim trend (which we suppose would actually be black), these white-to-mango ombre skinnies will freshen up any dreary outfit. Maison Martin Margiela two-toned gradient jeans ($240) – buy it at Yoox.

4. We’re pretty sure you could throw these into your suitcase wherever you’re headed this summer, so long as there’s a party going on when you get there. Just Cavalli purple floral & leaves print skinny jeans ($150) – buy it at Yoox.

5. A matte metallic beats out any of the shiny, flashy stuff—if not only because you could actually get away with wearing these to the office. Christian Dior matte metallic skinny jeans ($285) – buy it at Yoox.

6. If you want a little rock’n'roll that could still pass as elegant, you’ve got it. Amen. light-wash jeans with chain detail ($360) – buy it at Yoox.

7. An antique-looking ombre of gorgeous summer sky colors awaits—and we love that these aren’t skinny. Galliano tie-died jeans with studs & logo detail ($215) – buy it at Yoox.

8. Tears, bleach, and lots of stitching. These jeans have been through a lot, but they’re going to kill any stage fright you might have had. ROCK STAR destroyed bleached skinny jeans ($155) – buy it at Yoox.

9. This might be the print on your grandma’s couch in Miami, but we’re pretty sure it’s going to look better on your legs. Versace Jeans Couture printed jeans ($98) – buy it at Yoox.
