One of my favourite brands to see when I get to attend the press days in London is definitely J Brand. I’m always intrigued to see what prints and styles they will be coming out with next and what will be a leading jean/pant for them that season. The Autumn/Winter 2013 collection was definitely very reminiscent of the season and there are some pieces here that I think you will love!
In the photo above, you can see a black and white crazy striped sort of geometric jean which I thought was really cool. I can definitely see someone like Gwen Stefani sporting those! Next to them is something inventive, it’s a pair of black leather skinnies, however at the outerseam there are studs underneath the leather, so they raise the leather up in small bumps to give a 3D effect. The next black pair along was a regular jean, but they had studs in patterns along the calves as you can see and the other 3 styles were fairly simple, you can just see what they look like as there isn’t much to describe for them.
As for the coloured jeans that J Brand usually release each season, they were quite sparse this time around and the overall theme was monochrome in black/grey/white and beige. There were a couple of jeans in colours, but these were primary red and primary blue, which you can see in images 4 and 5. I was quite suprised actually that brands are now starting to stray away from bold shades and reign it back into classics. I’m wondering what SS14 might be like!
Image number 8 is of a pair of jeans which are snake print in black and silver, but they also look like little diamonds up close. I thought those were pretty. Image 9 is a very cool purple and grey ombre jean, but in a much different way because they are printed too with tiny little abstract squares, which I think is a great new take on the trend. Image 10 is of one of their classic blue denim vests which I really liked and then in image 11 you can see some of their distressed blue boyfriend jeans as well as some darker and non distressed blue washes. I love their classics!
Image 12 is their classic black leather skinny pants which everyone loves. 13 is a new black skinny with metal style detailing around the knees which you can see. These are definitely different and remind me a lot of almost futuristic wear or robotic clothing. Then finally is the grey denim shirt which is a new take on the trend for the colder months and also a pair of grey jeans. I think this new Autumn/Winter 2013 collection from J Brand is definitely one of their most sophisticated. I can tell they went down a different route with this season because gone are the really loud and intense prints and they are replaced with some sleek and minimalistic styles. What do you think of the new collection? Do you like it? Comment and let me know your favourites!
