We caught up with Dylan George designer Danny Guez to talk about the inspiration, new styles, and which are his favorites from the spring collections.
For the inspiration, Danny got inspired by a walk on the beach. Seeing the ease of everyone from the surfers to just the location. Another inspiration was the fabric itself. Each pair of jeans come in amazingly soft fabrics. They also hold their shape well too. That is something that just about everyone looks for in jeans, for them not to stretch out and sag in the thighs and butt and these will not.
There are quite a few styles and fits that I think many will love from this collection. For the women they have the Keira which is a skinny jean that is just perfect. They are fitted all the way down and come in many washes. This one is a style that Danny favors and by experience I know why. They are just great. For the men, they have a straight-leg fit, relaxed, regular, and the new Rocker Skinny.
There are also some new styles along with the core styles above. They have the Elizabeth, which is a baby bootcut, the sailor pants, and some shorts as well as capris. The great news about the shorts is that they are all priced under $100. I think this is a great thing. Many shorts by premium brands are just crazy priced for how little fabric is involved. They did push the boundaries on a few new styles. For the women they have a foiled pair and a bit further for the men (well for the usual man). I am loving that more brands are starting to be more open with their men’s styles. They have come out with some coated jeans for the men. There is a coated gray, cranberry, and khaki. I am excited to see the khaki. I think those will be great.
One note that I love that Danny gave is that the signature “Z” might come back to some of their women’s styles. The detail was put on hold for a bit, to make the styles get noticed on their own and not the pockets. Another great thing that Dylan George will be coming out with are some exclusives with Bloomingdale’s and Nordstroms. I can’t wait to see the exclusives. Being exclusives they are sure to be amazing. You can check out a peek of the women’s here and check below for the men’s.
Beyonce was caught leaving her office in New York City. She wore a pair of Joe’s Skinny Jeans in Jet Black. These seem to be her new favorite black jeans. I like that Beyonce is representing Joe’s. They rarely get any sightings. I think they have some great styles and washes. It’s good to see them out more.
I like that Beyonce does not compromise her style during her pregnancy. She still gives it to us when she is caught out. I have yet to see her looking slumpy. One thing that I am surprised about not seeing her in are a pair of leather pants.There are still a few months left. Maybe she will pull those out to be her last look before giving birth?

Lauren Conrad walked the red-carpet at the launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim video in Los Angeles, California. She wore a pair of faux leather leggings from her Paper Crown line. I think these are a really great fit on her. I also like that she kept her look classic with the white blazer.
The faux leather on these look amazing. They even look better than some of the real leather that some of the premium brands are using. They have that perfect matte gloss that I think leather should have. A lot of faux ones tend too look really glossy and borderline plastic. I think Lauren did a really great job researching the textile for these. You can click here to purchase Paper Crown pieces at Singer22.
Looks like my wishes have been answered. Current/Elliott have come out with their Suede Leggings with POCKETS! I have been waiting for them to come out with a skinny pant made out of suede. They have a brown (above) and a black which you can see below. Now for some hope for a suede pair in black and navy with ankle-zippers. You can click here to purchase these pants at Singer22 for $885 and here for them in Black at ShopBop for $876.
Those weren’t the only new style that they released. Current/Elliott is always one to push the boundaries when it comes to the mainstream denim brands. While everyone is coming out with leather skinny/leggings, they took a step ahead and came out with leather flares. Below are the Current/Elliott Frontman Flared Leather Pants. I kind of like these. I wonder if they will come out with them in the array of colors like they did with their skinny leathers? I do think that we will be seeing these on some of the leather loving celebrities. What are your thoughts on them? Are they too much leather? You can click here to purchase these pants at Nordstroms for $925.
