Here are some photos of the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from J Brand. I saw the new styles in London during the press day at Somerset House and I completely fell in love with a lot of them! J Brand are a brand that loves to go all out on their jeans and pants and they definitely didn’t disappoint for Autumn/Winter 2012.
My favourites would definitely have to be the pair above. I think the circular tie-dye print is absolutely gorgeous! I would definitely love to add those to my collection when they become available! Other pairs that stood out to me were the skinny pants in the image below because they have circular buttons at the ankles. I originally had this idea for my Paige Denim collaboration as I love buttons like that, but unfortunately it wasn’t the right time to do it.
They also had 3 jeans with velvet tapestry print on them in red, blue and gold (image 1, 2 and 3). I thought those were really cool, but a little too ‘out there’ for me. They had a jean which featured a mix of denim and leather with ankle zips (image 9). They have also brought out a brushed metallic jean (image 7) and a pair of suede pants with streaking all over them (image 11).
The famous J Brand leathers are in more Autumn/Winter appropriate shades, they also had jewel tone cords, a classic blue jean with distressing (image 13) and one of their new inventions (image 10), which is a new super skinny/super stretch pant. They feel like a wet suit actually, they have that thick elastic high stretch material and they are supposed to form to your body and not stretch out at all. Much like a super thick legging does, but in a jeans form with back pockets etc.
I have also included 3 men’s photos, which are the last 3 in the gallery, but they didn’t have much that really stood out. Their men’s collection was quite simple and basic, much like the previous seasons, although they did have a mini houndstooth print and a very whiskered blue wash. Those were the only two that really caught my eye. They do have some cargos, twill pants and regular denim, but that’s about it.
I also saw some of the ready to wear pieces for Autumn/Winter 2012, but I am not allowed to show those yet unfortunately, but I did fall in love with a very beautiful scarf and jacket! When I am allowed to share them with you, I will update this post with the images. So what do you think of the new J Brand Autumn/Winter 2012 collection?

Here are some photos from the MiH Jeans Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day in London, England from late in March. Unfortunately, due to the schedule of other press events and MiH being quite far away, I wasn’t able to attend. Hopefully I can next time as I missed out on seeing the new collection pieces in person. I did however get these photos from the day directly from MiH so we can still see the new styles and how everything looked. I’ve also included some info on it from MiH below.
We’re inspired by the hazy cool sea this Autumn Winter. By northern beaches. Rough waves. The shore. A white out of ocean colours. The winter surfers. The endless horizon. Autumn-Winter 2012. Our girl finds confidence in simplicity. In creating her own style. The calm, raw, timeless feel of the sea. Of the clouds. Of the beach. The sharp cold northern light. The elements can be seen in a bleached out colour palette of winter whites, chalks and creams; mixed with dark neutrals – grey, chocolate, navy. Contrasting with deep hues of hunter green, teal and rose red, with the palest sea greens and soft pinks. The delicate intangible prettiness of the Seafoam print.
It’s inspired us to put the odd sportswear detail in the collection. The Surfer Tee. The Pinny Tee. Sporty yet delicate. Later you’ll throw on our layers of knitted Donegal wools. Or the Guernsey Jumper. The one you’ll never take off. We have confidence in cool vintage denims. The Jane. The Topanga. The Phoebe. Real denims. The new masculine/feminine. Directional denim. The Casablanca. The flare for flats. The Brighton Jean. The jean for when you want to wear a little black trouser; but in denim. Our icons come through. In the Silver Biker. Patti Smith. In the perfect long shirts and men’s inspired wool blazers. Lauren Hutton. Effortless. Luxury.

I got the opportunity to preview Raven Denim’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection in New York. I feel like this collection was all about the details, with a lot of fun twists on trends.
One unique thing about this collection, is the unique use of pattern. For women’s styles, they had an arrow/chevron shaped print that starts below the knee. This was one of my favorite pairs of the collection, because I think it’s a quirky and subtle way to wear the printed trend. (See detail shot).
The colors are great for fall with great mustard, muted reds and grays. The colored denim comes in a variety of different cuts, including skinny and flare styles, as well as chinos. There are also a few more muted metallic hues, including pink and silver, which are not too shiny and very wearable.
The men’s collection was also really unique. One of the biggest stand outs of the men’s line is the use of Green Hybrid Denim technology. Raven developed fabric that uses recycled cotton and polyester materials. The collection features a few different cuts from this Green Hybrid technology. Although, for the time being, it’s only available in men’s styles. The men’s collection has a lot of slimmer cut styles, both in chinos and denim. They also offer printed styles, like herringbone and pinstripe.
Here are some photos from the new Juicy Couture Autumn/Winter 2012 denim collection and from the new Superdry Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, which I saw at the press events in London last month.
For Juicy Couture (first 6 gallery images), they had some coloured jeans in a coral-red colour with hip zippers which were pretty, some sand coloured skinnies and some dark grey pairs. I have also included a photo of some of the styling on the mannequins and some accessories. I have never tried Juicy Couture jeans before, but they did have some cute pairs, so I thought it would be worth taking photos of them to share with you all.
For Superdry (last 6 gallery images), they had their classic denim pieces for both the men and women. The women’s featured some skinny jeans and colour, along with their original blues and a chambray shirt. For the men, they had a lot more jeans in darker and mid blues. Nothing really stood out for me though, except a pair of coloured jeans for the women, but those didn’t come out in the photos. Again, the lighting was not good in the room due to the spotlights, but I used the best photos that I got.
