Finding the perfect length has always been problematic for every woman, even for one of the biggest models right now, Karlie Kloss. Standing at 6’1″, the model had issues finding pairs that are long enough to suit her never ending legs. To solve the problem, she collaborated with Frame to come out with pairs that will not only solve her issue, but also the many other women that have the same problem.
The styles that came into fruition from necessity, not ambition, are the Forever Karlie jeans. Two cuts, a flare and skinny, that have a 40″ inseam. They will be available in light and dark washes that are not only versatile, but classic. Keep an eye out for these when they will be available at Barneys New York, Net-A-Porter, Ron Herman, and Jeffrey in June. Will any of you taller ladies be trying these out?
Here is a look at some new styles that J Brand has for the men this Summer. J Brand is always one to keep their men’s styles classic with a few tweaks here and there to freshen them up, like the Kane in Bowery above, they updated the staple light blue jeans by adding 3D wrinkling at just the waist area and hand sanded details.
They have the Tyler in Varick (image 5), which is an ultra faded style in a super slim fit. A pair that is very on trend this season is the Kane in Ludlow (image 4). These are a pair made of chambray, so they are perfect for beating the upcoming heat. You can also see their new Bowery wash in the Kane fit below and they didn’t leave jackets out of the picture either.

Rag & Bone has released their first distressed style for men. There are two washes to choose from, the ever popular Sheffield that was once only for women, is now available in their RB15X for men (above) and the Destroyed Camden, which is a light washed jean (pre-order here).
Rag & Bone has to be my favorite when it comes to distressing. They always have a natural feel and are never overly done with a heavy hand. The Camden has this vintage quality that I just absolutely love. They make me think of these old Levi’s that I once owned. The Rag & Bone team just got it right with these for the men. You can see more shots of the Sheffield below and click here to purchase the Sheffield now from their website for $255.
Paige Denim has just launched on Net-A-Porter for Spring/Summer 2013 with a selection from High Summer as well as two exclusive styles created specifically with Net-A-Porter in mind. The two exclusives are really cool and inventive!
The Edgemont, a classic silhouette with rocker inspired front zipper details, has been updated in bold statement stripes. Available in classic Black/White and vibrant Poppy Red, the daring styles were created exclusively for the UK retailer. Inspired by the confident and unabashed style of Cara Delevingne and other off-duty models, each piece allows the wearer to give their own take on the street style trend.
“I am so honored to work with Net-A-Porter,” says Founder and Creative Director, Paige Adams-Geller. “I have been so inspired by Cara and her playful, bold and confident style – I am thrilled to have NET-A-PORTER offering these special pieces exclusively. “
Paige also now has some other styles being stocked at the online store and you can see the full collection below. The exclusive styles and the other jeans went live on the site recently and are retailing at $199-$239. I got the chance to see the striped jeans when I was at the press day in London last month as they had a preview of some of the SS13 collections as well. The striped jeans were one of my favourites there and I think they are gorgeous! What do you think of them? All of the styles are available to buy on Net-A-Porter.
