DL1961 debuted their Spring/Summer 2013 collection at Pier 57 in New York City with a collection that captured the New York spirit. Sarah Ahmed, the brand’s creative director explained the inspiration behind the collection, “This season, DL1961 honors New York City’s rich heritage and gritty aesthetic by honing in on the effortlessly chic and glamorous lifestyle New Yorkers are known for.”
For men, the highlight of the collection was the bold slim fit colored denim, including purples, mint and red, which were paired with chambray button downs. For women, the collection featured colored and classic washes for skinny jeans and as well as pairs embellished with patterns, prints and beads.
One of my favorite pieces was the white and black leather and denim jacket! I love the white and black together and it will be perfect for spring. You can check out some of the images from the collection below.
Earnest Sewn’s newest collaboration is with Peter Som. A few of the pieces (in the gallery below) debuted in Peter Som’s Spring 2013 Runway show on Friday at Milk Studios. The collaboration is called Floral Fusion and it features the floral print in pastel shades of pinks and creams. These pieces are limited edition for Spring 2013 and combines both brand’s contrasting qualities: Earnest Sewn’s rebellious nature and Peter Som’s refined designer’s touch.
The line blossomed from Peter Som’s poppy runway prints and incorporated Earnest Sewn’s renowned denim techniques such as pigment coating and laser-dye processes. Earnest Sewn’s Creative Director, Ben Talley Smith said, “the collaboration has pushed our team to work with silhouettes outside of the traditional five pocket realm that we know and love, so that in itself has been exciting for us.”
Designer, Peter Som noted that he’s “thrilled to partner with The Earnest Sewn Co. The fusion of my runway prints with their expertise in denim has resulted in a very exciting collaboration. As someone who wears Earnest Sewn jeans regularly, the collaboration is a natural fit.” The Earnest Sewn x Peter Som collaboration capsule collection contains seven pieces in total. In particular, the Esra lilac, pink floral short, a dark indigo floral skirt, and a mist mint green floral trouser while incorporating a wearable signature jean. What do you think of the joint venture? I love the jeans above!
The Olsen twin’s Beachmint collection, Stylemint, has recently expanded their offerings to denim! Just in time for fall, the brand has released a mid-rise skinny jean, the Lola. The jean comes in 4 different colors – purple, navy, black and twilight, each which are perfect for fall. They retail for $59.98 and come in sizes 24-32. I wonder if the brand plans on releasing more denim styles in the upcoming months? In the meantime, you can check out the video of the styling above and the jeans in the gallery below.
Here are a few photos from the Black Orchid by Julien Jarmoune Fall 2012 Photo Shoot that was shot a little while ago. It’s all in black and white as you can see so that it creates a very arty feel, but you can still see the emphasis and focus on the jeans.
I especially love the shot above because the floral print is the focal point of the photo and it really stands out. You can also see the metallic sheen in image number 4. I think there are some great styles to come from Black Orchid! What do you think of the photo shoot?
