Public School’s Men’s Denim Line: As Badass As New York City Itself #ProjectLasVegas #MagicMarketWeek


Denim veteran Tobias Levine teamed up with the founders of Public SchoolDao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne—to put together a line of men’s denim jeans that are every bit as badass as New York City itself, where all the garments are made. The team works closely with the finest production facilities in the garment district to offer this rare component to their line.

The collection offers washes developed and produced exclusively by Wonderland concepts (a wash house in Kentucky owned by Dick Gaines). They also offer entirely un-washed, raw denim variations that allow the consumer to experience the fabric and customize their own pair through repeated wear. Fits include Skinny, Slim and Straight: PS 13, PS 14, and PS 16 respectively. The numbers represent the ankle opening, creating a clear distinction for the wearer as to which fit is best suited to their body. See our favorite four picks below.

Make Your Butt Look Better! A New Revolution In Women’s Jeans


de Chemin Jeans is new on the scene, but their philosophy stems from a problem women have had since the beginning of skin-tight garments: making their butts look better. Whether you’re aiming for more lift, smaller size, or any other magic transformation, this brand says they have what it takes.

“Born from the son of ’70s label Chemin de Fer, the collection is engineered to enhance the appearance of your bottom. Each pair is constructed employing more than twelve pattern pieces of engineered stretch fabrication. On the back of the jeans, there are strategically placed reverse yokes. The waistband is sculpted to frame your shape, and the detailing on the hips is inspired by aeyodynamic design to lengthen the legs.”

We’re intrigued further by their vintage style lines and high-waisted options… so intrigued that we’re going to try on a pair next week and let you know what we think.

Kuro Denim Stays True To Their Tailored x Vintage Aesthetic


Last time we linked up with Kuro, they showed us a gradient of denim washed, aged, and treated for different lengths of time, and told us the best way to wear distressed vintage jeans was with a tailored blazer and a crisp, clean button-down. Sound advice that doesn’t expire, it turns out, since we ran into them this week and they were keeping with their vintage meets tailored aesthetic. “Denim for the Yohji fan,” they explained, showing us a dapper mannequin outfitted in the customer image. Selvedge trimmed back pockets, top-stitching, and other details characterize this impressive Japanese brand. Check them out online for more on their philosophy and products.

Denim Looks We Love From 3 Spring 2012 Collections


We found a few Japanese fashion labels that seem to share their own idea of what spring and summer should be about.  And boy, are the perspectives different!  First, Christian Dada suggests writing poetry and spending late nights out with your punk attitude in check, and don’t mind the occasional snags caused by your spiked denim jacket.  On a lighter note, Labrat reminds us of California summers out by Venice Beach where Hipsters and Hippies both hang in their vintage jeans and cut-offs; and finally, Revionnet wants us to think of simpler times while sporting “little girl dresses” or relaxed denim shirts made completely in denim.  We sense Alexa Chung may have played a role as a muse in the girly feel of this collection.

Denim looks we love from 3 different SS2012 fashion labels.

Mother Denim Offers It Jeans in Favorite Fits for Spring 2012


If you’re looking for new It Jeans this spring that aren’t too trendy but have just the right amount of pizzazz, then look to Mother Denim.  They’ve produced a denim range which incorporates all the most popular jeans fits in unadorned, unembellished styles.  From vintage washes to fun metallic jeans, it won’t be too hard to find your go-to jean for the better part of the year.  We’re particularly in love with the Curfew fit (a skinny thigh which gradually opens up to a subtle bell-bottom leg) and the tasteful color scheme from buttery yellow to muted blues, purples and reds.  And, for context, check out their “Mood Book” of images which include pants printed with summery graphics.

Mother Denim releases yummy colors in popular fits for spring 2012.





By the way, check out Denim Therapy’s recent visit to Mother Denim’s showroom for a behind-the-scenes peek.

Peek Inside The Office Of Donwan Harrell Of PRPS (It Looks Pretty Much Like We Thought It Would)


Donwan Harrell of PRPS was put under the lens when photographer Jake Davis came in to photograph his office. The photographer commented, “Donwan Harrel has a cooler office than me.” That about sums it up! Packed with vintage jeans, Japanese denim glossies, collectible Kewpie dolls in denim outfits and a plethora of Americana memorabilia, this is one office we wouldn’t have a hard time getting inspired in.
