The list of collaborations this year has been endless and MiH has added another one to the list. They will be joining forces with Liberty to come out with a few limited edition pairs to their Autumn/Winter 2010 line. Drawing from the key decade of both brands, you can expect to see prints and fits from the 70s in what they are calling the “Flower Power” collaboration. They didn’t just stick to the jeans with the inspiration. They also grabbed details, like the stars from Liberty’s old shopping bag and logo, and incorporated them into the tags for this collaboration. Isn’t that a great idea?
I think the detail of the “Dakota” jeans above is very unique. But right on trend with the printed denim trend. They got a feather print designed by Liberty in the 60s and used the new technique of laser fading to put the detail on the jeans. I can see someone like Fergie or maybe Dakota Fanning wearing these. They also have these jeans that are very on trend for the Fall, a pair of purple velvet flares. Why not combine two of the biggest trends for Fall? Velvet and Flares. Plus it’s the Marrkesh fit, so you know they are flattering. They have to be the most flattering fit that I have ever seen on a woman. Great News! They will be available this week. So how many of you readers are willing to make a statement this fall with these jeans?
As the temperatures start to drop, many denim brands are going back to what made them big… DENIM. But staying on trend they of course have to come out with the cargos in the great material and Joe’s Jeans have come out with their own.
I think these are one of my favorite cargos that have come out. They come in one of their best selling and flattering fits, the Chelsea. So you know these are going to look good when you put them on. I also like the zipper on the inseam of the jeans and the flap back pockets. Cargos have truly become very versatile when they became skinny. Haven’t they? I like that you can look relaxed by just wearing them slouchy and with a hoodie. Or you can dress them up with a blazer and some heels. How many of you cargo lovers are going to try the denim versions out?
Two of my favorite brands, Proenza Schouler and J Brand announced their collaboration during Fall Fashion week. which had all over graffiti print, lending an 80s street vibe. The jean is made from 11oz of Japanese denim, which is printed, then painted to achieve the texture and dimension, ensuring a unique look. The collection was available for purchase starting in July.
However, the latest celebrity to wear the collaboration is Elly Jackson. For the infamous September issue of Vogue, Elly donned a pair of the black and white graffiti skinny jeans, as she appeared in a feature with models and celebrities like Dakota Fanning and Hayden Christensen.

Tory Burch is a DenimBlog sponsor.
The brand we all know and love, Tory Burch, is expanding her collection and is focusing on her new denim line. The line includes skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, trousers, denim leggings, ombre washes and graphic prints like the Wally and Scribble which are very cute. The collection features 6 jeans at the moment and I can definitely tell that Tory has focused a lot of time and energy into crafting each jean. The fits look amazing and the washes are anything from simple and classic to really bold and eye catching. Her denim collection also includes a denim shirt, jacket and skirt.
I think Tory has a great eye for jeans, she originally grew up on a farm and wore jeans almost every day. It definitely helps when you have a long history with wearing denim - you know what works and what doesn’t. You can check out the new collection yourself by clicking here. I can’t wait to try a pair! I love the boyfriend jeans, the leggings and the ombre skinnies!
