HL Jeans Co sail in to Spring/Summer 2010 by taking the collection back to its nautical roots by focusing on the heritage that the Henri Lloyd brand has built its foundations on. Mixing design and technical detailing inspired from the main line collection, the design team have incorporated these styles to the already established fashion focused youth label to create a contemporary men’s wear brand.
The Spring/Summer outer wear collection delivers strong fashion focused styles with a seasonal colour palette ranging from bright reds to indigo, yellow and navy blue. The collection is then overlaid with key technical shapes and detailing borrowed from the brands naval history including enamelled buttons, welded pockets, nautical inspired block detailing and wax finishes. The Kenfield jacket follows the classic naval design structure with pod hood and reflective stitch embellishments.
The Naval theme taken on for Spring/Summer 10 runs throughout the entire collection, making the most impact on the T-shirt and Jersey ranges. HL Jeans Co has used a selection of naval inspired graphics and logos as shown in pieces such as the ‘true to the sea’ T-shirt as well as other sailing graphics. The collection once again pulls on the Henri Lloyd heritage as it includes the use of the Smithfold branding, which represents where the brand began and features on several pieces of jersey wear.
The S/S10 collection has also introduced the new HL Jeans logo on some key pieces, the new logo lends the collection a more branded look which ties it in with the existing Henri Lloyd ranges.
The HL Jeans Co S/S10 denim selection offers a variety of styles to allow consumers to buy into the jean line ranges from the more skinny fit right through to the straight leg style. The overall design of the denim offering has moved towards more stylised pieces using bright indigos, block white and greys as well as the more traditional stone washes and the blue rinse.
Emily Blunt was seen heading off to brunch with a friend at La Conversation Cafe in West Hollywood, California. She was wearing a new pair of Calvin Klein denim leggings. I can’t seem to find these exact ones online anywhere… I remembered the back pocket design from Eva Mendes’s Calvin Klein ads a while back. I love the neutral shades of her outfit, she breaks the black up nicely with a beige coloured hat and similar colour boots.

Jordin Sparks gave a free live acoustic concert to the paparazzi on Miami Beach the other day. A source apparently told JustJared “She performed two acoustic songs for photographers because she saw them outside in the cold, all wet from the rain. She sang covers of Jewel’s ‘Who Will Save Your Soul’ and Fall Out Boy’s ‘Sugar, We’re Going Down’.” I think that is incredibly sweet of her! It’s not everyday a celebrity actually likes the paparazzi. Jordin was wearing a pair of J Brand skinny jeans in Ink wash. Buy J Brand jeans at Singer22.
Noot Seear took the cover on the February 2010 issue of Italian Elle. She did her whole photo shoot in denim and nothing else! It’s really interesting to see all the denim looks that were created and she wore them so well. It looks like she is not shy about covering up either… I’m sure this will make our guy readers happy if you love Noot.
