Black Orchid’s new typhoon and monsoon washes are sure to energize any spring wardrobe. The Black Jewel Skinny jeans are treated with a bleach splatter effect to brighten up even the simplest ensemble. The darker typhoon wash is a subtle take on the trend, while the lighter monsoon wash is a bolder way to try the edgy denim look. The Black Jewel Skinny jeans in Typhoon and Monsoon washes retail for $135. I think they look like a combination of tie dye and vintage, love these!
Are overalls the new spring/summer trend? These are a far cry from the Gap overall days! They seemed like a continuation from the romper trend, more nipped and couture-like. Collections like Ralph Lauren and Jean Paul Gaultier feature them. Overalls perpetually remind me of what I wore as a child or a farmer, a far cry from trendy and chic. Is there any way to wear them without looking frumpy? Overalls… yeah or nay?

Muubaa have released this leather shirt which looks like washed denim. It has a checked cotton lining and is light weight. Would you wear this shirt? I’ve never really heard of leather shirts, only vests and jackets. Do you think it would be comfortable? I get the impression it might be a bit suffocating and not very easy to move in…
Fresh Ink is a interesting, cool, downtown denim brand. With a celebrity following of hip and trendy celebs like Camilla Belle and models like Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Julie Henderson, the brand is now taking their line to new levels with the introduction of three new categories: Luxe, Vintage and Classic. The pricing point for their jeans is around $100, not too expensive and not too cheap. Here is part of their press release:
Ink is art. It is the blood of design; it creates lyrics. It gets under your skin. Fresh Ink is clothes for now. Its clothes for the future. Its clothes you want to wear. Its clothes that truly fit. Fresh Ink brings to the American contemporary sportswear market a women’s + men’s Designer Collection that fuses impeccable, nu-classic denim and redefined wardrobe basics with indelible cool. Drawn from the minds of some of America’s proven fashion industry visionaries, Fresh Ink is not for everyone. It’s beyond trend and imitation. Fresh Ink is sub-culture + thought + quality + fit. With creative conviction, Fresh Ink integrates design, art, music, color and vision, creating a true denim-based Collection. Fresh Inks basic denim bodies are beyond comparison in fit, finish and fabrication – updated classicstyles that have been reinterpreted for today. Fresh Ink draws life into the modern flare with ‘Yume’ – the next essential jean. Straight, skinny, flare, trouser and wide-leg are all reincarnated through infinitely considered details. Clean – plain + cool = Fresh Ink denim. Add to the mix redeveloped non-denim styles like shorts, skirts, dresses, jackets and outerwear that give you what you want, without what everyone else has. Luxury meets relaxed style for on-the-go, in-the-know people. More importantly, Fresh Ink liberates its people from the tyranny of the premium denim market,offering superior quality but at its own, democratic price point. Some of America’s most directional retailers appreciate Fresh Ink’s manifesto: Barney’s Co-Op, E Street Denim Co., National Jean Company, Flirt Brooklyn, Rock on Main among others.
