Net-A-Porter, one of the world’s premier online luxury retailer, is delighted to announce an exclusive collaboration with MiH Jeans which just launched today! With the SS11 runway shows awash with referencing to the seventies, this capsule collection is timed perfectly. MiH Jeans delved into their archives; think wide leg culottes, flared jeans, swing shirts, vintage tunics and button down skirts in a palette of sheer dusty pink, Oxford blue, crisp white and fawn. We all know that MiH Jeans have a range of classic 70s inspired clothes so I can see why this is the perfect fit!
The collection of denim and soft cotton separates offers a fresh and wearable simplicity. Picture Jane Birkin – a great pair of jeans and a soft, simple shirt never looked so good. With a return to a high waisted wide leg silhouette this season, the jeans in this collection take centre stage. The ever popular Marrakesh kick flare is offered in two washes and fabrics and there are two new shapes – the Milan, with its chic wide column leg, and the Monaco, an ankle-grazing kick flare. Choose one of these styles and make it your go-to pant of the season.
”Working with Net-A-Porter to develop an exclusive capsule collection is an amazing opportunity to present a range of jeans and ready-to-wear that fuses simplicity with luxury and the best of MiH’s 70’s heritage with a modern wearability. The result is timeless, nostalgic and effortlessly stylish.” says MiH Jeans designer and founder Chloe Lonsdale.
”We are very excited to be able to offer this exclusive capsule collection from MiH Jeans. I can see the kick flare jeans and soft shirt becoming summer’s staple outfit whether you are on or off-duty.” says Holli Rogers, Buying Director of Net-A-Porter.
I love the drawings of the designs which are featured in the gallery as well, they are beautiful and really well done. As I mentioned before, the collaboration just launched today so head on over to the site to buy the pieces before they sell out! Click here to purchase the styles at Net-A-Porter.
Actor, Director and Screen Writer (and anything else we can add to the list for movie related jobs) Sean Penn posed for photos at the photocall for the movie ‘This Must Be The Place’ which was held at the Palais des Festivals on the Croisette Avenue in Cannes, France.
It looks like the wind may have blown his hair about but he still looked good in a double denim outfit. He chose a denim shirt and a pair of jeans with dusty work style boots. With the faded wash of these jeans, I think he made the right choice in colour of footwear. I’m never normally a fan of the same shade of denim paired together but it actually does seem to work on Sean.

Elle MacPherson attended the launch of Project Ocean at Selfridges in London, England a couple of weeks ago. She posed for her photos wearing a slim fitting leather blazer, a pair of black strappy heels and some MET Jeans. She chose the X-Elah skinny fit jeans.
I have a pair of the MET 360 skinny jegging style jeans as well and they are so comfortable! They are really stretchy and perfect for walking around in for ages. I will be reviewing those this week for you. I definitely understand why Elle loves the brand so much, their jeans are crafted so well and they take care with their washes.

I did an interview with the UK H&M magazine a while back for their Summer 2011 denim issue. I spoke to them about the trends, why denim is so popular and more! You can see the writing in the zoomed in images in the gallery below. If you have the magazine then it’s on page 28 and 29. I also did a guest post for Trilogy Stores blog and I gave them a few tips on finding jeans that fit. You can read that here on their website.
