J brand jeans
Emmanuelle Alt made an appearance back in late January at the Gucci/Vogue Paris Dinner in honor of designer Frida Giannini. Emmanuelle wore a pair of jeans from one of her favorite brands, J Brand. This time she chose the Lexington in Shadow. I like that these are a bit looser, like trousers. It gives them a more professional feel, in lack of a better term.
One thing that I love most about Emmanuelle’s style is…she loves low rise jeans/pants. Though these aren’t low, she is wearing them low. She, with her personal style, along with what she consults for, rarely have shown high-rise pairs, if anything their high rises are the standard medium rise of many other brands. I don’t find high-rise unflattering, I just find that you need the body for them otherwise they will shorten the legs. You can click here to purchase J Brand jeans at Singer22.com
Denim collaborations are nothing new with J Brand. They have collaborated with Henry Duarte, Peter Pilotto, Erdem, and more in the past. This collaboration isn’t a new one either. They will be doing it again with another familiar face, Christopher Kane. Remember the pair that was spotted on Cheryl Cole from the 5×5 collaboration? This time it will be a full capsule collection.
For his coming Resort 2011 collection, jeanswear will be in both denim and other fabrications. Kane himself has said that he is “very excited about my new working relationship with J Brand. We have the potential to grow a very strong denim business and are thrilled to be working with the best in the business.” Great news is that this collection will be available worldwide. So stay tuned to see the designs when they are released.
It seems like Ciara is all about J Brand these days! Just a few days ago she was wearing J Brand’s Zombie jeans and most recently, a pair of the skinny jeans in ink wash. Which of the two styles do you prefer? I love that she’s wearing the Zombies, I haven’t seen a celeb wearing them in quite a while!
In other news, Ciara and Rihanna recently got into a fight on Twitter! Apparently, Ciara made comments about how Rihanna wasn’t exactly the nicest person to her when they met, Ciara commented “I ran into her recently at a party. She wasn’t the nicest. It’s crazy, because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion. It wasn’t the most pleasant run-in.” This launched a few back and forth insults between the celebrities on Twitter, but luckily the singers decided to call a truce.
Emmanuelle Alt was spotted making her way to the Calvin Klein show during New York Fashion Week earlier this month. Taking a liking to the brand, like many editors, Emmanuelle chose a pair of J Brands for the show. This time she chose a pair of the Lovestory in Ink. These jeans are so classic and it’s a nice change to see her in another style and wash besides skinny and black.
Emmanuelle has said that she loves simpler jeans and thinks that they should not be designed. This explains why she hasn’t worn any of the styles by the houses that she consults for. Also, Emmanuelle recently stepped down from her consulting role at Balmain. She will be replaced by Melanie Ward from Helmut Lang. I’m interested in seeing how the fashion house will change. Both houses love super skinny jeans, but Balmain is more on the gritty side than Helmut Lang. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Singer22 for $178.
