Christopher Kane x J Brand
Kate Bosworth released a Coachella inspired video for her line Jewelmint. The video features her traveling and frolicking through the desert on her way to the festival. In one of the scenes she is wearing a pair of Chistopher Kane x J Brand shorts (top left at the 1:38 mark).
I am so excited about Coachella. I’m there now! Super excited to see the performers. I also have to admit…I am pretty excited to see what everyone will be wearing. How many of you guys are attending?
Here is the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection from the Christopher Kane x J Brand collaboration. I think the pieces are really amazing, especially the washes. The Pasadena wash is to die for in my opinion. It comes in four styles, a slouchy jeweled boyfriend pair (above), a skinny, a jacket, and the Tammy shorts.
The washes weren’t just limited to blue washes. It wouldn’t be a Christopher Kane collection without some colored pieces. There is the Ice wash that comes in the Jacket, Tammy shorts, and a pair of the Biker shorts. There are the Raf Blue and Chocolate that comes in the Biker shorts, skinny, and Tammy. Pink denim wasn’t left out of the picture either. They come in the skinny fit.
I can’t wait to see some of these styles on someone, especially the jeweled pair. I’m sure whoever wears it will sure know how to style them. You can click here to purchase the Christopher Kane x J Brand collection from the J Brand website.
Rihanna sure loves wearing her denim jackets out in the water. She wore the Christopher Kane x J Brand jacket in Neon Yellow to do some paddle boarding. I will say that I like that Rihanna found a way to incorporate denim into her beach looks without wearing a denim bikini. Though not a huge fan of neon, I think that this color looks amazing against Rihanna’s skin.
Like a said earlier, I am not that big of a fan of the trend. However I would like to see more of the Christopher Kane x J Brand collection out. I think he did a great job with both the neon and regular washes in this collaboration. He also made one of my favorite jeans when they came out with the 5×5 collaboration.
I love that J Brand is venturing out to other pieces and techniques as well. Along with the Christopher Kane collaboration, they also came out with their own denim jacket. They also took their waxing technique to another fabric, sateen. If you thought they got the leather look down with their waxed denim, they proved you wrong. Being smoother than denim, the sateen has an even more leather look than their previous styles. You can click here to purchase this jacket from the J Brand website for $408.
Dree Hemingway attended the Christopher Kane x J Brand Launch Party in New York. She wore a double denim Christopher Kane x J Brand look. Dree doesn’t get caught out much. I think she has really great style. It is that unfussy put together look.
Though I will admit….the jacket and the shirt here look a bit awkward together. I do think the jeans with the Vivienne Westwood Pirate boots are a great combination, surprisingly. I am just not a big fan of the color orange. Leave it to those Vivienne Westwood boots to make me like the color for once. They just make every look better.
