Variety and softness are the two words that came to mind when I was looking through the new Spring/Summer Paige collection for women. She has a way of taking what are normally edgy styles, like motorcycle styles and cutoff vests, to a more feminine realm, whether it be colorway or her always flattering fits.
Rose and pink were definitely the standout colors. The soft hue was toughened up in the Edgemont and given ease in a boyfriend short. She didn’t just stop with signature styles, new styles include a pair of overalls, a shirt dress and a patch jacket that is ready for Coachella. You can see all the new styles below.
For Spring 2014, Citizens of Humanity made a nod to luxury vintage with their Premium Vintage collection. Taking inspiration from what drew them to denim in first place, designers Jerome Dahan and Catherine Ryu turned selvage and non-selvage fabrics into washes that embody the natural heritage of denim.
You can never go wrong by taking inspiration from where it all began, especially with denim. From the stories that each individual pair tells to the the way the fabric feels, denim takes on many ways of life. So when I heard about this collection I could not be more thrilled to see the outcome. The washes feel organic and the styles seem easy, just like the pairs of the past. What do you think of the new collection? You can check out yourself below and click here to get them now.
We had a few previews of what was to come for Spring/Summer by R13 (here and here) and now it is time to see the full collection. The team at R13 is fearless when it comes to fit. They had classic styles, like the skinny and slouchy fits that the brand is known for, then they have the more bold ones like harems and plaid shorts that mock the look of a shirt tied around the waist.
Outerwear was also in abundance with new styles like M1 jackets and plaid bombers. Then there is the denim that comes in a range of oversized cutoff jackets to classic ones. The brand just never ceases to amaze me. You can see the full collection below.
While in New York, I also had the opportunity to view Denim of Virtue’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection. After seeing the look book, I was excited to see the collection up close and view all of the details.
I think this is perfect for warmer weather with the bright neon acid washes, studding details, and printed skull prints. For the guys, there are more classic pieces like khaki and denim shorts and chambray shorts. Check out the collection below.
