Shearling (or sheepskin) is really hot right now. It’s a great way to still wear your denim jackets but actually stay warm at the same time. I wasn’t too sure on the way shearling looked against denim but now It’s grown on me and I can’t wait to wear this trend! For those of us who just can’t do real sheepskin, there are other options as a lot of places do faux sheepskin so it’s completely animal friendly! Topshop is a great example of that.
So how many of you love this trend and are going to be rocking it for Winter? I know I am! Since this trend is taking off, it’s not just on denim! It’s on a lot of leather jackets, boots and vests as well. It reminds me of an old flying jacket when I see it on the leather styles. I like it though!
Urban Behavior have some great new styles for the men for the the coming Fall/Winter 2010 season. They have some nice dark washes in some great fits, such as a boot cut, carrot, and a slim fit. It also looks like grunge isn’t going anywhere with the styling of this shoot. I personally love the styling myself.
I am also noticing that it is not just the women whose jeans are getting less skinny, it is also the men. This collection, along with other brands, seems to have more of a slouchy fit. Let’s hope they don’t take the baggy look too far like they did in the ’90s. You can check out the new pieces from Urban Behavior below.
On September 18th, Rock and Republic celebrated the launch of a new jean, the SV18 jean at Nordstrom in Santa Monica. Rock and Republic teamed up with L.A. Laker’s shooting guard, Sasha Vajacic, to create the new style. The jean features a longer inseam, measuring in at 38″ and a wider leg, which makes it perfect for athletes.
Sasha appeared at the store, meeting fans and signing autographs. Fans also had the opportunity to shoot a basket and win a pair of Rock and Republic jeans and other prizes. Check out the photographs from the event below. You can purchase the SV18 jeans at Nordstrom.com
Gwen Stefani arrived in New York City to prepare for Fashion Week. She was headed to her Manhattan offices to prep for her L.A.M.B. Spring/Summer 2011 Show. I think that Gwen’s L.A.M.B line and Justin Timberlake’s William Rast are the only two celebrity clothing lines that are actually shown during fashion week.
Gwen wore a black silk caftan style shirt and blue washed jeans. Gwen’s jeans are from L.A.M.B.’s new collection and actually were the second look of the show! Her show featured tribal inspired prints and patterns, many in various blue colors. The pictures from the show make these look so much bluer. I really like them!
