Danish model, Freja Beha, may be retiring from the catwalks, but will still very much be in fashion. Mother Denim recently announced their capsule collection in collaboration with the model. The collection will feature the Muse skinny jeans in both black and a faux-leather, moto jeans, chambray tops and cut off shorts . About designing the collection, the Freja shared, “I wanted them to be the thickness jeans should be, but also comfortable. We got the first pair really right, and I’ve been wearing them ever since.”
Prices will range from $145-300 and will be sold at Nordstrom and 10% of the proceeds of the sales will be donated to the non-profit, Doctors without Borders. What do you think of this collaboration? Are you excited for it?
Wrangler launched their denim spa jeans earlier in the year, and now they have given us a preview of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The denim spa jeans now come in a range of colours, which you can see in the video above, modelled by Lizzy Jagger.
The high summer collection features bold, zesty colours – lemon, melon and kiwi. The jeans are infused with moisturisers to keep your legs feeling soft and smooth. Elizabeth Jagger is the ambassador for Wrangler Denim Spa and said “Denim Spa is something really new in jeans. You know from the first touch that they are special – they’re softer and smoother than regular jeans. It gives you confidence that a denim legend like Wrangler has created these styles.” “After a day wearing Denim Spa, my legs feel great. They come out of Denim Spa jeans feeling more silky than usual”.
This high summer collection of coloured jeans come bathed in moisturising Summer Fruit extracts. Micro-capsules of fruity goodness burst open during wear and transfer to the skin, to smooth and replenish legs. Denim Spa is offered in three fits: low slim Molly, low skinny Courtney and mid skinny Corynn. Have any of you tried them yet?
While in New York, I got the chance to check out the 3×1 store at 15 Mercer Street. It was a denim lover’s dream and offers a truly unique denim experience. When you first walk in, there is a wall covered in bolts of denim from around the world. There are over a hundred different fabrics, in a variety of washes and weights, from which you can choose to customize a pair. Everything is done on site including the tailoring, which you can watch them work on through a window enclosed room.
For those who don’t want to have a pair made from scratch, there are also a variety of fits and cuts available, for both men and women, that can be customized on site. While I was there, I picked out a pair of dark wash skinny jeans for customization. After deciding on a length and having them marked for hemming, I was able to select my hardware from a variety of different options (I chose a red button and grommets). There are also a wide variety of options for thread colors and fabrics for pocket linings. After I made my selections, off to the tailors they went. Not more than 15 minutes later, my customized jeans were back in my hands.
For those who are interested in the brand’s current lines, it is also available in store for purchase. I took a couple of photos of some of my favorite pieces from the current women’s collection. One of my favorite pairs, is a pair of skinny jeans with tuxedo stripes on the interior seam. Not only is this a unique take on the trend but it is also very flattering!
If you’re in the area, I definitely recommend checking out the store. It is a truly unique experience and you can really appreciate how much 3×1 loves denim and values all of the details that go into making a great pair of jeans.
