Hologram denim has been done before, but not as well as these by Naked & Famous. Past pairs have lacked the iridescent luster and fantasy that these have. To achieve the effect, the denim was coated and hot stamped with reflective silver holographic foil that projects into a rainbow of colors when it hits the light. With a wash that has a life of its own, Naked & Famous kept the cuts classic to have the wash stand out.
Another great unnoticed detail about these is that the more you wear them, the coating starts to break down to reveal actual denim underneath to add depth to the jeans. Though these are men’s styles, I can see the women also being fans and pairing the jeans with black ankle boots or the jacket with a mid-length skirt. What are your thoughts on the hologram?

Rag & Bone has been one of the brands that helped bring the leather sleeved denim jacket onto the market. Since their first style, they have released many interpretations of it each season. Whether it be mildly distressed jackets for the warmer seasons or medium washes for year round.
For the Fall/Winter season, they took the idea and elevated it a bit further by making the jacket in burgundy suede. This piece takes on a new life with the supple soft suede and the deep burgundy shade, it is ready for you to throw on over your summer dresses to toughen it up.

Just when I thought J Brand couldn’t surprise me enough with their Nicola pants, they come out with an exclusive pair in denim for Barneys. Though I am still a bit partial to the all leather version because of the ankle zipper, I think the all denim version is pretty close up there with them.
After seeing these, I am interested in seeing how far they will take this style in the future. The range is endless with a style like these. I can see it looking great in suede’s, coated washes and even in olive/khaki tones. Until then, you can click here to purchase these jeans EXCLUSIVELY at Barneys for $284.
Greg Lauren is not known for pieces that are the typical clean that you associate with the word tailoring. Instead he has taken that word and spun it around by creating pieces that are reconstructed, unique and well fitting. These jeans are no different from the heritage of the brand.
Keeping with the reconstruction aesthetic, they have taken the ideas of a boyfriend jean and a sweat pant and spun it around into one of the coolest hybrids. By adding seaming details, with tweed patches and zippers to keep them from looking like the everyday jean or the sweat pant styles of the past. They are truly one of the coolest pairs that I have seen, it’s unique without feeling over the top. What do you think of them? You can click here to purchase them at Barney’s $1235.
