Here is the exclusive first look at the new Textile Elizabeth and James Spring 2013 collection. Featured are classic blue and black washes that are reinterpreted with new innovative techniques.
Along with the classics, interesting details like distressing and zippers were incorporated into some of the styles. Their Ozzy and Lennox jeans come distressed in a wash called Rip and Repair, their new Cohen jean has piping going down the outseam, and zippers can be seen on their Davis and Johnny. A boyfriend style named Blaze and a high rise skinny named Cyndi are two new styles making their first appearance this season. You can see all of these styles along with many of the other new pieces below.
I am a bit on the boarder on who will take the crown for Denim Diva this year. We would think it is Rihanna when we get sightings of her, then after we would get one of Jennifer Garner and start to think it is her. They are definitely neck and neck between them two this year.

When Lorna first showed me these Paige Skyline Ankle Peg in Citron Destruction, my first initial thought was that I need to style them. It is rare to see such a vibrant, fresh pair for the Fall/Winter season, but Paige made them appropriate for the season by adding some distressing to keep them new. For the two looks, I went with styles that were very layered. Just because they are bright, it doesn’t mean they can’t work for right now.
The first look is the simple layering approach. There is something about a long coat that I find to be the chicest thing. You can easily throw it over anything and look put together. I wanted to have the look be warm without adding a ton of bulk. With the Rag & Bone t shirt and Topshop coat, I am sure you will stay warm and look smart. The look doesn’t end there though. I chose the Jeffrey Campbell France boots as I thought the color was a great compliment to the brightness of the jeans.
If a coat and long sleeves isn’t warm enough for you, then this look will sure keep you warm this season. I paired the jeans together with a leather jacket and cardigan by Topshop, a T by Alexander Wang t shirt, and Rag & bone boots. I have always been a fan of layering longer pieces under leather or bomber jackets. Something about the juxtaposition of it, that I find, looks very comfortable. Almost like a security blanket feeling. I chose a heeled boot to keep you looking long and not swallowed by a long sweater. What are your thoughts of these looks? Which one is your favorite?
Alicia seems to be quite the fan of the Rag & Bone paneled jeans. She has been spotted in their Split jeans as well as these in the black and white combo before. Each pair that she has worn has been styled perfectly in my opinion. You can click here to purchase these jeans from the Rag & Bone website for $595.
