Textile Elizabeth and James
Here is the new Textile Elizabeth and James Spring 2012 collection modeled by Abbey Brothers. The looks were styled by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen themselves and feature hand-painted Supergas (they are creative-directors) to match the color scheme of the line perfectly.
This collection was so unexpected…in a good way. There are lots of prints that I never would have thought I would see from Textile. Then again I shouldn’t be too surprised. They did come out with neon and I never thought I would have seen those. Back to this collection now. The jeans had snake, floral, and tie-dye print. There were even some studded shorts. Those studded Ruby shorts along with the tie-dye Debs would have to be my favorite jeans.
The jeans weren’t the only great pieces. The slouchy tanks and sweaters also caught my eye, especially the tie-dye sweater that is paired with the Sunny Lime Ruby Shorts. These are just great clothes that I think many would love to wear during the weekend. You can check out the full collection below and click here to purchase some of the pieces at Shopbop now.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to see this style come out by Textile Elizabeth and James. They make one of the best jeans. They are so soft and keep their hold all day. Plus they have pockets. Something that has been lacking a bit in the denim department since the denim legging hit the market. Then to see this style come out by them is just a dream come true. I hope this fit is a core fit and keeps coming out in more washes as the new seasons roll by.
These are the Lou jeans. The Lou is a mid-rise skinny jean that has an inseam zipper at the hem. It currently comes in one wash and that is the Snapdragon. I can see the inspiration from the flower into the wash. It has a golden color with some fuchsia undertones. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Shopbop for $195.
Rachel Bilson was caught doing some shopping in Los Feliz, California. She wore a pair of Textile Elizabeth and James Stevie jeans in Dazed. I have been wondering when we would see Rachel wear some Textile. She loves vintage and these jeans have this brands exact aesthetic.
I think these jeans look great on Rachel. I like that she played with the whole 70′s feel of the jeans by pairing them with a white tee and platforms, yet Rachel doesn’t look dated because of her accessories. These jeans are no longer available, but you can click here to purchase one of the many other great styles by Textile at Shopbop.
The Icon himself, Steven Tyler, wore a pair of the Textile Elizabeth and James Jimi Patchwork jeans in Borderline during his interview with Oprah Winfrey for her new Oprah Next Chapter show. In the interview, he talks about his struggles in life, why he did them and how he overcame the battle.
I was actually wondering who we would see in these and I am happy to see that it is Steven Tyler. If there is someone that can pull these jeans off, I definitely think it is him. I don’t think that there will be anyone else that can wear them better. He is such a rock/fashion icon that he can wear anything and make people want to get whatever it is.
