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.

Here are some photos of the denim from the new Autumn/Winter 2012 Wrangler collection. They didn’t actually feature as much denim as I had hoped for at the press day, they seemed to focus a little more on their other clothing, but the pieces they did have seemed quite nice. I have included more men’s photos (first 6 photos) than women’s (last 3 photos) as the men’s collection seemed a lot bigger than the women’s.
They had a lot of denim jackets and shirts for the ladies, more so than jeans, I didn’t actually see many jeans for the women, maybe one or two pairs, the rest of the collection was mostly about their other clothing and their denim shirting. I think that’s because those are the most popular for the ladies though, I don’t see many ladies in Wrangler jeans, but I do see them in their denim jackets and shirts.
For the guys, they featured an array of everything, quite a few jeans, some denim jackets, some denim shirts and lots of plaid lumberjack style shirts and padded jackets. Judging from the display table, it looks like they went down the route of keeping the American theme that’s behind the brand. Some of the washes on the jeans (especially the pair on the mannequin) looked really pretty. I love the mid blue it has and how detailed they are. So what do you think of the new Wrangler Autumn/Winter 2012 collection?
