These are the new Bethany jeans by IRO. They are a legging style that have leather paneling in front of the jeans. I am usually not a fan of leather piecing like this, but these really caught my attention. I think it may be because it wasn’t the leather that caught my eye, it is the actual stitching itself. There is a ton of detail in the jeans, but they all work because they are black.
I also think they can easily be styled up or down. You can wear them with a slouchy button-up, partly unzipped at the cuff with some ankle boots to dress them up. Or with a tee and some tan sandals for a casual day out. I can see these on someone like Kylie Minogue or Heidi Klum. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Ssense for $465.
Here is the new Spring/Summer 2012 Men’s collection by IRO. The collection has the classic IRO aesthetic of comfort, grunge, but still looking smart. That’s what I love most about this line. It never goes to the point where the styling looks like they rummaged through the garbage.
Unlike the previous collections, this season features some color. Not a lot, but there is color. There is a pair of yellow jeans, which I quite like. They also had their classics like leather, baseball jackets, and blazers. You can see the collection below.
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! IRO just gets it right each season and their Spring/Summer 2012 collection is no different. There is also the return of Dewi Driegen this season. No other model depicts the IRO aesthetic better than her.
For this season the looks had range. It had everything for every type of girl. Many of you will not be disappointed. They ranged from ethereal to their classics, laid-back Parisian cool and the Rock chick. One thing that I did notice this season, that is different than their past ones, is that there are no leather pants. Something that is not necessary each season, but I just enjoy seeing the new details they put into them each time.
The pieces are just amazing. My favorites would have to be the knits. The one from Look 9 is perfect. I also love the jackets from Looks 2 and 18. The jeans came out in some great washes and prints as well. They had floral and feather/fan print, as well as yellows and blues. Everything is just perfect. You can check out the Look Book below.
