James Jeans has just released their brand new coated styles for Fall in various cuts and colours. I caught up with designer, Seun Lim, to find out a bit more about the jeans, how they can be styled, what makes them different to others and more. Carry on reading below to find out about the new collection. My favourites are definitely the Twiggy in Black! I think those are gorgeous! All of the styles are available for purchase on their website by clicking here.
DB: So tell us, what makes your coated jeans different to the many others on the market?
When it comes to coated denim, it has to be the weight, touch and breathability of the fabric. You do not want to sweat in them unless you want to lose weight. Our coated denim is light, soft and has natural characteristics for a vintage coated look. One more thing to add, we use matte coats which gives you a slimmer and sexier look rather than being super shiny!
DB: What are your recommended washing instructions for the jeans?
Dry clean only for extra longevity. If you want to continue the natural vintage look of the coating then you can wash inside out in cold water and hang dry. Another method would be freezing them. I was just speaking with one of our leading denim mills and they said this was the best way to avoid washing while still cleaning your jeans. apparently the cold eliminates bacteria caused by daily wear.
Anna Kendrick loves her James Jeans! She wore a pair of the Twiggy skinny jeans in Dark Paris to a Samsung Galaxy launch event. Anna was also spotted in a pair of the Twiggy jeans earlier this month while out in New York City.
While I loved the Alto wash, I think this is my favorite of the two outfits, I really love the color combinations of her outfit and the almost black wash. You can buy these jeans from James Jeans for $154.00

Anna Kendrick walked through Times Square after appearing on Good Day New York. She wore a pair of James Jeans Twiggy skinny jeans in Alto wash with a bold yellow blouse and studded flats.
I think these jeans look fabulous on Anna! I love how the yellow pops against the gray wash. Gray jeans started to become trendy again the past few seasons and I think they will continue to be popular into the fall and winter as well, which is great because they’re so versatile.

The Slate wash has to be my favorite that James James has come out with. It is not just a boring grey like many others. There is a lot of depth to them, which is really needed for an amazing grey wash. You can click here to purchase these jeans from the JamesJeans website for $185 and if you are interested in her shoes; you can click here to purchase them at MadisonLosAngeles for $219.
