Here is the Fall/Winter 2010 Look Book for the denim brand Frankie B. You can view the styles in the gallery below and you can also read the press release for the new line below.
The popular Los Angeles based denim brand Frankie B., responsible for creating the low-rise craze and putting a spotlight on rock inspired premium denim, strengthens its positioning in the oversaturated marketplace by adding new categories, altering the fit, and expanding its size range to include waist sizes from 23 – 32. A Petite division is scheduled to launch in stores in late April.
After 11 years in business, the brand has successfully weathered a strained economy by adapting to the demands of a broad customer base while remaining true to its original design vision emulating rocker style from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Creator Daniella Clarke made the decision to cater to this new customer by altering the fit of the jean, raising the back rise and expanding the size range to anchor both spectrums of the market ultimately increasing her fan base and boosting sales. The core denim collection is supplemented by the introduction of best-selling novelty items such as leggings or jeggings accounting for 50% of the brand’s overall sales. The item returns in various styles and fabrications for Fall 2010
including the classic skinny and ruched styles in denim, and non-denim basics, prints and shine. The legging also appears in a motocross version, cropped with side zipper, and eyelet lace-up among others. Other styles for Fall include a skinny cargo, slim bootcut, and side seam short. The suggested retail pricepoint ranges from $109.00 for a basic skinny jean to $195.00 for one that is distressed and embellished.
For this weeks denim review I decided to do Frankie B. My BFF Denim Leggings With Lace in Black Fusion. These jeans have the classic Frankie B. fit; very flattering on the butt and low rise. They are very very stretchy, just like real leggings and made of lightweight denim. They have lace/mesh all the way down the front of the legs which you can see in the detailed close ups. The lace is held in place with stitching around the holes. I think they are very pretty and make an interesting jean. I really like the way these leggings look, they are perfect for dressing up with heels and going out to dinner. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for a different style jean. They have a 7″ rise and about a 31″ inseam. The only thing that upsets me a bit is I have super sensitive skin so the lace can feel a bit itchy on my thighs but that’s the issue you get with a lot of fabrics if you have sensitive skin like me, other than that issue the jeans are wonderful and very pretty! Buy these jeans at Frankie B. for $171.
These jeans are very classy, great for dressing up and wearing to the more smarter dinners but they are so versatile they would look very cute with some flats and a tunic. Definitely a must buy!

Close up modeled photo of them modeled on the thighs. The jeans stretch out over your legs which shows more and more of the lace so the tighter the jeans, the more lace will be on show (like the stock photo at the top).
