From Women’s Wear Daily:
Jil Sander’s creative director Raf Simons has turned his expert hand to premium denim clothes for men. The sleek tailored pieces, in off-white, blue or gray denim, will roll out to Jil Sander stores worldwide for spring, and come packaged in an exclusive navy box. Fashioned with traditional sartorial workmanship, the five-pocket pants are slim or boot-leg, while the skinny two-button blazers feature inner pockets and softly padded shoulders.
Raf Simon is genius and I’m sure these pieces will be gorgeous! I can’t WAIT to see more!

A couple of months back (October to be exact) I bought a pair of J Brand’s “The Deal” jeans …you know, the ones with the side ankle zippers.
At first I was hesitant. I hadn’t seen them worn yet, but 75% of me liked them off the bat. When I checked out however, I swore to my sales girl that I’d never wear them with the zippers open (ok, rarely). She promised me I’d change my mind. I have to admit, leaping back to the land of the ankle zipper felt strange at best, somewhat Madonna–but not in the Louis Vuitton way if you know what I mean. The last time I’d worn a pair personally was circa 1988– my hair in a very chic side pony.
As fashion changes, (and, yes, circles around), I am usually receptive. But, I’ve never been much into the 80′s trend although some people will disagree with me–saying that ankle zippers are not ’80′s at all–Cynthia Steffe was doing it in 2002 on black waxy high waisters after all! Yet, while Vogue was shooting brightly colored exposes a few years back, lycra and mis-shapen cardigans for all to see, I was kind of rolling my eyes all the way, praying for the cool, casual, collectivity of the ’90′s to return once again.
However, after wearing my J Brand The Deal jeans for the past 60 days (non-stop I must add) and drawing upon inspiration from all eras of style, I’m going to fold: I’m definitely hooked.
To me, the jeans go with everything. They make me feel fashion forward, yet not too trendy everytime…not to mention thin. What more could a girl ask for? I wear them with short booties for that Blondie edge, a preppy Ralph Lauren button downs with flats…even a grungy Tee, cute heels and long, layered necklaces look amazing with my J Brand’s. And the girl who sold them to me was spot on: I don’t just wear the zippers closed. I love them in every combination of partially open and all the way up too.
