Jean Machine have designed an exclusive pair of jeans and a denim jacket for Missoni, using the zigzag Missoni knit in the lining of the jacket, and pocket bags of the jeans. You can see some of the looks that walked the runway featuring the collaboration pieces in the gallery below. I have also included some info from the press release about the collection for you as well. What do you think of it?
Jean Machine, the contemporary men’s denim brand, announces its first offering in partnership with Missoni, the iconic Italian fashion house. Both family run businesses, and specialists within their product categories, the two companies make a natural fit.
The collaboration for Autumn-Winter 2013 will offer Jean Machine’s signature JM2 straight leg jean in a clean blue Rinse wash with Missoni knitted pockets in the season’s blue-camel colour pallet. Also offered is the classic JM4 jacket, reworked to include a button out detachable Missoni zigzag felted wool waistcoat in a coordinating blue-camel knit. Together they offer an understated, simple style statement. Jean Machine’s concept is straightforward: great quality, well-cut men’s jeans with an understated approach to style.
In the 1970s, Jean Machine was the definitive denim store on the King’s Road in London, famous for providing the best-fitting jeans around. In 2008, it was re-launched as Jean Machine by Chloe Lonsdale, daughter of founder Tony, who wanted to deliver the ease and confidence of the original Jean Machine to a new, modern man. Missoni, the iconic Italian fashion house, celebrates its 60th birthday this year.
The men’s A/W 2013 collection references the family’s artisanal knitwear heritage while continuing its constant focus on innovating exclusive knit techniques. This is represented in the unique Missoni fine loom knits only made in Sumirago Italy that form the core of the brand’s tailored offering for A/W 2013.
Diesel has created an exclusive capsule collection for Selfridges for 2013 named ‘No Noise Initiative’. Diesel is embracing the start of the new year by launching the exclusive capsule collection of iconic designs referencing cult pieces from the 90′s archive in support of the Selfridges ‘No Noise’ initiative.
The collection launched on January 11th and will be available until March 8th exclusively at Selfridges. The pricing will start at £55. The ‘No Noise’ campaign is a multi-layered project consisting of events, installations and concepts that each invites customers to “proactively seek out moments of peace and tranquility in a world that bombards us with information and stimulation”. In addition to this, Selfridges have confirmed the involvement of brands taking part to each create one-off pieces that offer customers a “stripped back collection of symbolically de-branded products that encourage considered purchasing”.
So, Diesel is leading the way and celebrating “the power of quiet” by offering a 3-piece capsule collection exclusively for the project. With reference to its heritage in groundbreaking denim design, the Diesel No Noise collection combines 90′s cult classics that celebrates the beauty of a minimalist aesthetic and focuses on product quality and function, rather than branding or advertising.
A purely menswear collection, Diesel No Noise will be limited edition with each design available in just 55 pieces. Featuring an update of some of Diesel’s most iconic 90′s cult designs, the famous DENVER denim jacket, cotton lined with tonal soft flock and heritage leather collar sits alongside classic light blue washed denim jeans designed using modern laser technology to recreate the traditional but popular old-school washing process. Completing the collection; a classic – an ‘Only the Brave’ t-shirt featuring a nod to the famous Mohican head design.
Paying homage to the Selfridges No Noise concept, all Diesel No Noise pieces have been entirely sewn without any visible external stitching, and as a twist, each piece has been designed not to feature a brand name, but simply the inclusion of the classic Diesel stripe tab. So what do you think of this little collection?
Christopher Kane presented his Fall 2012 collection at London fashion week, the collection also marked the third collaboration between J Brand and Christopher Kane. The latest styles include a bold red palazzo pant with tuxedo stripes and a distressed black jean. It definitely seems as though tuxedo stripes and wide leg styles will be very popular trends this fall
I wanted to share with you a couple of different outfits of my Skyline Lorna collaboration jeans with Paige Premium Denim. I’ve already shown modelled photos before but I wanted to show that these jeans are really versatile. They can be worn with flats, heels or boots as well as blazers and tank tops. I think there is nothing more classic than a dark blue wash. These photos are from a simple meal out on a Sunday and from the Mulberry/Designer Emporium event at Kilver Court so they can be worn most places.
I also wanted to say how grateful I am to all of you who bought the jeans! They actually sold out on Revolve Clothing so they ordered more stock and labeled them as a best seller! The Tristan almost sold out on PaigeUSA but they have got more stock in of those as well! I can’t thank you enough for all of the support with this collaboration and I am really happy that you love the jeans! They should be available in the UK really soon as the UK always gets the stock a little later than the US. I really hope that my dreams of becoming a jeans designer and having my own brand can come true in the future and you will all like them as much!
