Designer Jean Look Books
Fashion week is in full throttle and William Rast’s spring collection did not disappoint! The collection featured skinny jeans, denim leggings, light wash denim and zippers galore! The look for the new season was “sexy tomboy with a lot of class” for a softer, edgier look. The best news is that the price point for the collection will be 10% less than in years past.
Check out some of the looks from the collection:

Here is your sneak peek at the Company 81 Spring 2010 Line with Adam Gregory modeling. Mmmm I gotta say they picked a fine male specimen to show off their line! I love how this brand has started with Men’s clothing first, I also like that they have a decent boy’s selection as well. It is really hard to find decent clothes for boys in the age of 9 to 13, they are too small to wear men’s and they aren’t toddlers anymore…and we don’t all like shopping at Old Navy…
The new Diesel denim fw09 collection is coming like a storm of heavy rain, destroying hot summer and welcoming fresh fall. The colleciton is influenced by extreme climatic conditions and is clearly seen on the new fabrics and washes. There are 3 main themes to this new collection:
Rain: The denim called rain, as the name suggests, is rain washed and features irregular water drop patterns.
Storm: Storm arrives to refresh summer and leaves fragmented lines and dashes with lighning effects and ultra treated denim styles.
Destroyed: Finally destroyed denim styles are compellingly distressed with overstated cuts, and slashes transforming and creating unique and unrepeatable pieces.
I think the ideas behind this new collection are great! Very interesting and unique.
Karmel & Alden premium denim have released their new fall 09 collection. The Los Angeles-based Karmel & Alden’s new collection ticks all the boxes for current fashion trends. This season sees updates on classics, such as the celebrity favorite, ‘Virginia’ style, as well as the introduction of more directional styles which are right up there with fashion’s continuing obsession with denim cool. In keeping with this idea, Karmel & Alden traveled to the capital of street style, London, to shoot its latest lookbook and PR imagery, bringing together the best of British cool and L.A.’s laidback style. Referencing English artist, David Hockney’s photocollage work (specifically Pearblossom Highway #2) and Karmel & Alden’s L.A. roots, the result is a vintage-inspired shoot by fashion photographer, Julia Kennedy and art di- rected by Lucy Spink. Key looks include a new, super-fitted denim legging style available in deep navy blue and pale blue. The ‘Brooke’ jean has a white lightning wash and is a sure-fire bestseller, along with the lightweight ‘Gabrielle’ skinny jean in a pale blue, tie-dye wash. Everyone’s favourite boyfriend jean, the ‘Caitlin’, is now available in a washed down, destructed finish and this season look out for the ‘Scarlett’ boyfriend short! For a more retro look, the ‘Monica’ has the ideal-sized flare in lightweight, butter-soft denim- perfect with a pair of platforms to complete the 70s look. Other styles include the best-selling ‘Virginia’, available in various washes and the straight-leg ‘Bridget’ jean in deep indigo blue. Founded in 2006, Karmel & Alden is dedicated to continuing the American love of denim which has existed since the fabric was first introduced to the USA in the mid-19th century. Karmel & Alden quickly established itself as a premium denim label whose collections pay homage to the vintage denim styles and washes that have been worn by all sectors of American society- from the gold miners of the 1860s and the farm workers and cowboys of the early 20th century American West, to the teenage greasers and rockabillies of the 1950s and hippies of the 1960s. Designed and manufactured entirely in Los Angeles, Karmel & Alden uses only the best fabrics to achieve what has become a denim line known for its perfect fit, excellent styling, unparalleled workmanship and attention to detail, culminating in an impeccable end product. Karmel & Alden is stocked in over 90 independent and online stores across the USA and is worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Audrina Partridge, Brody Jenner and Robert Knepper.
