First sold in Jean Machine on the corner of the iconic Kings Road and Flood Street, Chelsea, MiH Jeans is returning to its birthplace for a month-long pop up shop in The Gallery at Anthropologie: in the exact space the original Jean Machine store claimed in 1969.
Echoing the inspirational warehouse space of MiH HQ on Lots Road and surrounded by iconic MiH photography from the 70′s, (including images of Chekkie Maskell, the original face of the brand and Chloe’s mother), The Gallery at Anthropologie will be transformed into an MiH Jeans denim store selling a selection of the most beautiful pieces from the Spring-Summer 2012 collection.
The pop-up shop will showcase the chic Portobello Collection; a capsule collection of denim, silk, linen and chambray ready to wear garments inspired by the cool London styling of the 1970’s and radiating the essence of MiH: casual, individual, effortless. There will also be seven different styles of MiH Jeans from which to choose, as denim comes full circle back to the Kings Road. You will also get a limited edition tote bag with each purchase!
To celebrate the launch, Anthropologie hosted a preview event on the 15th February. Chloe Lonsdale was on hand to share her styling tips amongst a 70′s setting, and help find that perfect pair of jeans. You can see those images in the gallery below.
The Gallery, Anthropologie, 139 Kings Road, London, SW3 4PW is open Monday to Saturday 10:00-19:00 and Sunday 12:00-18:00. You should definitely stop by! You can also buy MiH jeans online at their website here.

Olivia wore a pair of MiH Jeans Marrakesh flares in Hazel with a fluffy vest and a green shirt underneath. I’m glad we are getting more MiH sightings now! I think this Hazel colour is gorgeous in the cut, it looks really vintage and classic! Buy MiH Jeans at MiH-Jeans.com.

Ali Larter got snapped by the paps as she was leaving a clothing tailor in Beverly Hills, California. It looks like she was carrying a Chanel dress bag. I wonder what item was in it?
Ali wore a pair of MiH Marrakesh jeans in what looks to be the Nico wash. I think this is actually the best I have seen the Marrakesh jeans fit on anyone. They are perfectly fitted, tight, but not too tight and the inseam length is perfect! I prefer how these fit Ali more than on Claudia Schiffer or Elle MacPherson. They look hot!

I’m doing two reviews this week and the first one is on the MiH Vienna 5 pocket legging jeans in Joplin wash. I got these jeans as a Christmas present from MiH Jeans and I am very grateful to the brand for that!
MiH Jeans have always held a little soft spot in my heart as it’s so close to home. I’m English and have lived in England all my life, just like MiH Jeans was born in England and remains true to its heritage. I took these in a size 26 because of them being super stretchy, I knew I would need to size down. I’m usually a 27 in MiH Jeans, however I am a 28 in the Pinetop and Breathless washes due to the material content and stretch. Hopefully that helps with sizing. I would definitely say size down one for these.
The Vienna cut is wonderful! It’s a low rise jegging and it’s so soft! I honestly can’t get over how soft the fabric is and how silky and comfortable they feel on my skin. They are amazing to wear! If I could change one thing though it would be the calf area, from the knee down I like my jeans to be really skinny, like proper leggings almost, but the Vienna cut is cut a little looser from the knee down. This is a good fit for most people, but for me, I have very small calves so I struggle finding super skinny jeans because of that reason. Having them fit like this though makes them look and act like regular jeans, but with extra comfort, so it’s not all a negative.
The fit of MiH Jeans is definitely one that’s flattering for ladies with smaller butts as well I find. The back pockets are cut quite square and positioned very central on these, so they are nice. They sort of lift the butt up, but they don’t make it round if you have a bigger butt. I myself find the rise always to be really low in the back, but that is because my tush does stick out ha ha. The inseam is quite long for me too, but that’s purely because I have quite short legs. In general though, I think these are gorgeous! They are definitely my favourite cut from the brand so far! I honestly can’t even explain just how soft, smooth, comfortable and almost delicious the fabric feels. They are honestly incredible to wear. You could wear these all day, like I did, and still be as comfortable as the moment you put them on!
The Joplin wash is also one of those washes that is classic and timeless, but it’s my favourite kind of dark wash because of the subtle sheen that it has. Under the light, it gives off that look of depth and richness, rather than just a normal flat dark blue wash. These jeans could literally be paired with anything though, any colour and fabric pretty much and they can definitely be worn casual or smart, they are completely versatile, so that makes these a very good classic jean to own.
I would say if you are looking for an English jeans brand and a very soft and silky pair of jeggings, these could definitely be one that I recommend to you. Make sure you size down from your usual MiH Jeans size and they should be fine! If any of you have tried the Vienna cut let me know, I would love to know how you got on with it too!
