This Vintage Chanel Denim Makeup Bag Sold For $558


Few things seem to excite style mavens more than vintage Chanel, but when this vintage denim Chanel makeup bag hit Nasty Gal, it was an intense moment for all of us. Many of us clicked frantically to check our savings account balances, and debated whether this morsel was worth dropping $558 on. In the end, someone thought so, cause it’s since sold out. But we just couldn’t bring ourselves to do it.

…But seriously, how sweet would it be to pull out this baby in the ladies room when you’re powdering your nose?!

A Denim-Head’s Dream: Custom Jeans & Absolut Vodka At Loren


Denim lovers in Brooklyn know of a little gem on Nassau avenue right at the fringe of Greenpoint and beginning of Williamsburg, where the brunch and dinner crowds form for Five Leaves and Nights & Weekends. Loren is a small white brick denim haven filled to its brim with made-in-Brooklyn jeans, vintage denim finds and related treasures like men’s accessories and a selection of women’s denim staples. Denim Therapy was invited in for a bottle of vodka (wrapped in a snug denim case, designed by Loren Cronk in a special collaboration with ABSOLUT) and some jeans-to-go. We finished the evening off with denim-themed cocktails at Nights & Weekends.

Fake It Till You Break It: Earnest Sewn Offers Convincing Distressed Denim


Got a cellphone with sharp edges? Or a cellphone that you’ll use for the next three years? We didn’t think so. But you don’t need either of these things if you’ve got a pair of Earnest Sewn’s expertly distressed men’s jeans. Unlike obvious “artistic” distressing you’ll see in some lines, their jeans have subtle, rugged details like a worn-in cell-in-pocket facade and a bit of ripping near the hem. Denim Therapy may be in the business of fixing holes in jeans, but we’re no less impressed when a brand creates good, authentic distressing for the sake of style.

Japanese Indigo: Boro Exhibition At Mondo Cane


We went to see the Japanese Indigo: Boro exhibition at Mondo Cane last night and snapped some photos of the gorgeous (and for sale!) vintage indigo-dyed denims and textiles collected by photographer Eric Kvatek (known for shooting the lookbooks of brands like PRPS and Kapital). We were blown away by the textures, stitching, and huge size of some of the pieces. Check out our snaps below!

Exclusive Interview With Big Star USA


Denim Therapy had a chance to interview Big Star USA‘s women’s designer Miki Flores on the summer lookbook, the brand’s latest happenings, and what’s in store for next season. Go behind the scenes with this exclusive Q&A!

Big Star USA Interview summer 2012

Denim Therapy: We’re in love with the Summer 2012 campaign/lookbook. What was the inspiration behind it?

Big Star: We used “Road Trip” as our theme for the Spring look book. A bit of a laid back bohemian vibe, which fit perfectly with our collection that included vintage denims, neon shorts and easy fitting jersey dress.

DT: Who is the Big Star customer right now?

BS: Our customers are independent and confident individuals who take youthful and modern approach when it comes to  styling their outfits.

DT: What kind of washes are being emphasized in the line right now?

BS: We have always focused on bringing authentic denim washes to our customers. For this season, we focused a little more on paler shades and a bit of destruction with a twist of contemporary furnishings.

DT: Does your team have any pre-designing rituals?

BS: We normally take inspiration research trips to Europe or Asia to bring in freshness and also to step out of our daily routines. But doing vintage treasure hunts at flea markets or vintage stores are also very inspiring as well.

DT: Can you give us a hint about what’s next for F/W?

BS: Darker casts in authentic washes, leggings, wax coating, COLORS, prints, cozy cords, and workwear-inspired denims.

DT: How do you see street style/the web/developments in the online fashion community shaping the brand’s interaction (and even its DNA) moving forward?

BS: They play a huge role in shaping trends and what gets accepted at mass level.  Most of us are spending more and more of our awake moments online or on our phones and seeing these influencers pushing new and edgier looks is definitely helping trend directions. I believe this plays a huge role on current trends of colors and prints.

DT: Finally, what message would you like to give to denim consumers right now?

BS: Be BOLD!

Madewell Denim Designer Jac Cameron Owns 500+ Pairs Of Jeans


Refinery29′s month of denim may have ended yesterday, but we’re still having a blast browsing the interviews, reviews, and styling tips. Today we wanted to share their interview with Madewell Denim Designer Jac Cameron, who says she owns 500+ pairs of jeans. Her talk about vintage classics and old school washes will have your inner denim geek developing a big ol’ girl crush.

madewell-denim-jac-cameron

Our favorite quote:

“Wash is the first thing that attracts me to a pair of jeans. It’s a huge part of what I love about denim. Dark, saturated shades are pretty much what I wear day to day, however washed-out, powdery blues are so pretty, especially as the weather gets warmer.”

Check out the full interview with Jac Cameron here.

NYC’s DJ Haruka Salt & Her Re-Mixed Denim Style


NYC DJ and certified badass party animal Haruka Salt opened up the doors to her closet recently so Denim Therapy could get a closer look at her style. Her selections included black and white lightening  bolt printed jeans, acid wash high-waisted skinnies, and a lot of high-contrast pop accents. She confided in us that she loves mixing up vintage clothing with new, coming up with just as much variation as you’ll find in one of her DJ sets. We hit the street with Haruka in her favorite outfits and took these shots—get inspired below, and listen to one of her mixtapes while you scroll!

Look 1. Acid wash mid-rise skinny jeans with neon yellow tank top & chain-embellished shoes.

5 Street Style Looks That We Love Featuring Cut-Off Shorts


The weather is finally warming up (fingers crossed!) and we’re looking to grab inspiration from the coolest girls on the street. We’ve rounded up some pics of rad ladies styling jean cut-off shorts, which you can check out below. And FYI, if you have a fave pair of jeans you’re looking to make into shorts, try out Denim Therapy’s cut-off shorts service to get the perfect length!

Sadly, we can’t get our hands on these Levi’s shorts (they were thrifted!), but you can substitute Forever 21′s high rise destroyed shorts. In this transitional weather, it won’t be weird if you pair a cropped sweater with short shorts. Seasonal confusion? Nah!

Take a cue from Connie, the blogger behind K is for Kani, and grab an electric blue pair of cutoffs, like these J Brand Cutoff Shorts in Blue Bonnet. Roll ‘em up for a more polished edge.

This girl does denim on denim while wearing her fave pair of shorts, and we’ll gladly follow suit with our light summer tees, high-tops, and faded cutoffs (check out these Siwy Camilla shorts).

Style blogger Anouska Proetta Brandon got these true-blue jean cutoffs from Camden Market, but here’s a great pair of vintage cut off shorts from 7 For All Mankind that you an snag sans heavy searching. Top knot optional.

The plain white tee and jean shorts combination is a classic, but this look gets edgy with ragged tights and tons of statement bangles. Australian blogger Morgan got her pair from One Teaspoon, but we’re also loving a similar short from the brand, One Teaspoon’s Original Bandits style.
