Designer Jean Look Books
Here is Blank NYC’s huge Look Book for their Spring/Summer 2011 collection. They have a lot of denim to offer and their new styles are hot!
The Spring collection includes a bigger push into non-denim integrities, such as sateen, tencel, linen, broken twill and leather. Just like many other brands, Blank are taking it further with their fabrics. Non-denim fabrics are represented by sateen cropped trousers and long shorts, linen relaxed straight legs and drawstring pants and Tencel drawstring shorts. Military inspired styles are also present in their new line, cargos in new spring colors as well as cargo bermuda shorts as an update to the cargo and cargo skirts and broken twill military crop pant
Their new fits include a rugged slim bootcut, roll up skinny capri, relaxed straight legs and skinnys, high rise skinnies and a high rise belle. There is also a high rise aviator short. Spring seems to focus on cleaner washes and more beat-up light washes as well, transitioning from heavy embellished styles from the Fall season to new fits, fabrications and styles with a novelty twist for Spring.
Superfine is probably one of my favorite denim brands when it comes to innovation. They always push the denim spectrum with new silhouettes with each collection.
For this collection Superfine was inspired by the trend for spring, the ’60s and ’70s. Superfine made sure to keep it modern with the silhouettes by featuring the earthy color palette with the trends of today. You can see their interpretation of the patchwork trend combined with the waxed trend and their popular swirl jeans as well have been interpreted in a new way. This time they have chains wrapping around the leg. You can check out some of the pieces from their look book below.
As you know I am a huge fan of the Fall/Winter women’s collection by IRO and the collection for the men’s is equally just as amazing. I love the fatigue feeling of the collection. I think the jackets and the sweaters are amazing, especially the Jim and Logan jackets. They are so well tailored.
IRO also interpreted the Bob Pants from the women for the men. The Dav Trouser also includes zippers at the pockets but comes in a baggier fit. The collection also features some henleys, t-shirts, and a denim shirt. You can check out the men’s collection below and click here to purchase it at Ssense.
IRO is a brand that I have recently started to get fond of. The Bob pants (shown above) to be specific. I just find them to be amazing. They have vertical pocket zippers and a 9 inch ankle zipper at the inseam, which is perfection. If only it came in more washes. It seems so difficult to find a great pair of jeans that have ankle zippers at the inseam and I think these are it. They are definitely on my wish list.
The collection is full of many great pieces including, of course, denim, leather (the Clyde leggings are also to die for), outerwear and loungewear all modeled by Elena Melnik. Each piece is all their own and all carry an edgy personalty. You can check out some of their looks below and click here to purchase some at Ssense.
