Jennifer Lawrence is the next person to be caught in the Textile Elizabeth and James Johnny in Onyx. In the promo video for Saturday Night Live, she paired them with a sweater by Elizabeth and James. I hope that we get more sightings of Jennifer in these jeans, especially since she is the front runner to win “Best Actress” at the Oscars this year.
I think these jeans are going to be their next popular style by Textile. If you can’t wait for these, I highly recommend getting the Coopers. They have a similar feel, but with the addition of ankle zips. I have been wearing mine quite a bit lately. I find them to go with everything right now.

Just like the men’s, the women’s Ksubi AD/BC collection had clean lines with the addition of grungy classic pieces the brand is known for. This season had leather and embroidered pieces with the inspiration of religion.
What I found appealing about this collection is how strong it is. There was no piece that stood out amongst the other, nor was their a weak piece. They all coincided cohesively with each other with such harmony. You can see the women’s pieces below.
The new Ksubi collection, titled AD/BC, was strongly inspired by religion. There are shirts, sweaters and even pants decked out with graphics that were inspired by the architecture of cathedrals.
Just when you thought Ksubi couldn’t get any better, they send out their best collection to date. To say that I am amazed by this collection is an understatement. I find it to be such a fresh take from what we usually expect from them. It is a look that I expect from Ksubi in the future; a more refined aesthetic by the brand. You can see all the looks below.
The new Saint Laurent collection is the male adjacent to the gypsy chic of the women’s Spring 2013 collection. Unlike the women’s, the men’s collection went more grunge with a tron of layering, plaid and distressing. To polish up some of the looks, Hedi Slimane paired some of them with leather pants and tailored jackets, as well as bringing back out his signature skinny suits.
I have to admit that I am actually quite proud that Hedi Slimane re-designed the whole aesthetic of the fashion house. I find the current inspirations would look lost with the previous aesthetic. With the current renaming and design, it works together harmoniously without sacrificing the soul of the fashion house. I am also loving that Hedi is filling the void of Christophe Decarnin right now with the distressing and denim for me. Ohh how I missed those days. See the collection yourself below.
