J.Crew and denim company Goldsign collaborate for the first time – and produce a must-have collection for denim lovers alike.
The collaboration features three fits: “Jeane” – a feminine, sexy, high-waist American jean; “Jenny” – a slim leg, classic, 5-pocket, high-waist jean with cuff; “Holly” – a timeless 1950’s high-waist pencil skirt; ranging in price from $198 to $288. The washes vary in authentic vintages, pure indigos, and soft pastels and the fabrics and trims were designed with the modern woman’s lifestyle in mind. Focusing on feminine fits, the washes vary in authentic vintages, pure indigos, and soft pastels.
“This collection was inspired by a flight from New York to Los Angeles as Goldschmied read the Marilyn by Andre de Dienes book. He became mesmerized by an image of Norma Jeane Baker – young and fresh – a natural beauty. She was honest, sincere, full of energy, and motivated to succeed…dressed in red, white, and blue (jeans); she was the epitome of the “American Dream” of the 1950s.”
You can check out the collection now at their site.
I’ve maybe worn denim maybe … twice … in the last year. Call it denim overload. Call it denim backlash. I once lived in a CNN of denim — all denim, all the time. And I got sick of it. And denim was banished to the back of my closet.
But denim is back. And not in the same way. Denim jackets, denim vests, even denim on denim.
Now, I’m not gonna go rushing back to the 24-hour cycle of jean dressing. There are just too many alternatives out there to stick to one fabric or look all the time. But given my denim hiatus, I have to say, the material is looking kinda fresh once again.
Perfect timing for Allison Izu Song. The Japanese American (married to a Korean, hence the last name) has come out with the perfect denim line. (Check out our profile on her in our Fall 2010 issue.)
Sure, Allison Izu is made for the petite woman. (Song herself boasts a respectable 5-foot-2.) But at 5-foot-6 (and a devotee of heels no less than four inches), her “UK” zipped capri fits me pretty perfectly. Perfectly skinny, perfectly dark, with the coolest bold gold zipper, but with a secret stretchy panel for those of us who enjoy a good meal or two. Read: no muffin top.
Suddenly, denim is looking refreshingly new. Now if only I can get that denim-on-denim thing right.
Denim is huge for spring, and I don’t mean just jeans. Bags, shoes, shirts — denim’s everywhere.
Get in on the denim trend with Voom by Joy Han’s “Judy” denim babydoll dress. With corset styling, a textural braided belt, and — my favorite — pockets, this is the dress you’ll wear all summer.
There’s nothing I love better than great style at fast fashion prices. All the new designer collaborations have kept me busy — Sonia Rykiel for H&M, Jean Paul Gaultier and Liberty of London for Target, and of course Vera Wang’s always chic Simply Vera for Kohl’s.
The Warehouse Sale is a lot like that — must-have designer denim at prices (below wholesale!) that’ll make you feel rich. If you haven’t tried designer denim, you’ll truly be amazed at the difference in fit and quality.

RSVP now! The sale’s on this weekend March 20-21, at Smashbox Studios, 1011 N. Fuller Ave., West Hollywood, CA.
