There is a new premium denim brand on the market from creative director, Jimmy Taverniti. The brand is called D-ID and is based out of New York. D-ID seeks to rediscover the true identity of denim through the launch of its Fall / Winter 2013 collection. The name is an an acronym for Denim Identity and D‐ID stands out among the current trend driven market, proving that authentic denim remains the fashion‐forward favorite. I have included information from the press release below as well as a gallery full of look book images for you to see. What do you think of D-ID?
Creative Director Jimmy Taverniti draws D‐ID’s roots from three cities — New York, Los Angeles and Paris. Melding East Coast edge, West Coast ease, and Parisian refinement, D‐ID offers a subtle and sophisticated approach to premium denim, evolving trends by applying innovative techniques to classic silhouettes.
While the fits are basic, the details are anything but. The standout element is a diamond‐stitched, or “diamant,” quilting technique, providing untreated blue denim with tactful texture, and giving coated black jeans the illusion of quilted leather. High quality Japanese and Italian denim are seen in cream, traditional blue, and over dyed black, with subtle distressing found on select styles. Garment dyes and flocking are used, as are transparent coatings, adding a slight sheen when applied over subtle prints and double dyed styles.
The collection focuses on five main cuts for women: Basic skinny , Cropped skinny , Moto skinny , Ankle zip and Hidden ankle zip. These, plus a boyfriend‐style jean, are offered in 32” regular, 29” ankle, and 27” cropped inseams, all in a size run of 24 – 32. Rounding out the selection are traditional jean and biker‐style jackets, featuring the same “diamant” quilting and flocking techniques as the jeans, creating a “total denim” look when paired together.
Made in the USA, the Fall / Winter 2013 collection will be sold at Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus, in addition to select specialty boutiques. Prices range from $138 for a basic jean to $228 for more advanced styles, maintaining the collection’s accessibility within the premium market.
Summer is quickly approaching, and that means it’s time to show off your cropped denim styles. Crops are the perfect balance for an effortless summer look.
From indigo, to vibrant hues, to crisp whites, J Brand has got you covered. If you’re looking for something to liven up a look, try the 835 Mid-Rise Capri in Julep, a fresh pastel that will add a pop to any outfit. If you’re interested in a neutral tone, try the 835 Mid-Rise Capri in Ventura. This grey denim is a great twist on classic denim, and will transition seamlessly from season to season. Really trying to make a fashion statement? Try the Sylvie in Blanc, a cropped flare in a crisp white. White is the color of summer, but you’re guaranteed to stand out in this unique cut.
Wedges are the perfect pairing for these J Brand styles, so dust off your espadrilles or cork wedges and show them some love!

Shopbop teamed up with Ruby Aldridge to style some of Citizens of Humanity’s latest styles for the site. The pairs she styled include the Simone Finnely Stripe Jeans (Pictured above), the Quincy Overalls, and The Moto Vest. You can check out all of the looks below and shop the looks on Shopbop.com. My favorite is the Moto Vest paired with the striped Ava cut off shorts. Which is your favorite look?
