Denim special: Net-a-Porter’s new It-labels to shop
Few things are more classic than our favourite jeans, and we all love our Levi's as much as the next person — but spicing up the expected with some snazzy edge has become de rigueur, lest we be deemed predictable. This season, little details — be it fringe hems or discreet rips — go a long way. And whether you like it rough-and-tumble or polished, raw or washed to supple perfection, Net-a-Porter's exclusive Frame capsule collection, new denim labels and band tee edit have got you covered with the season's silhouette staples.
FRAME'S DENIM CAPSULE
If you're eyeing the ubiquitous patchwork pair of jeans (no, they're not Vetements) worn by the leggy Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss, to the petite Emma Roberts and Reese Witherspoon, you're in luck. Frame — the denim label behind the A-lister's laid-back go-to — is releasing its sell-out Le Mix edition in a Net-a-Porter exclusive capsule collection. Styles vary from straight-leg, boyfriend to a mini skirt.
BLISS AND MISCHIEF
It goes without saying that vintage clothing collector Hillary Justin's label is most beloved for its intricate embroidery and chain stitching on its Levi's. With singular character, wear and wash on each unique piece, this label is one to keep your tabs on for the right amount of delicate DIY.
Shop Bliss and Mischief
Marrying chic with cheeky is Scott Morrison's soho-born 3X1 denim label. In on the customisation game, the luxe label's kitschy iron-on patches elevate its bespoke jeans into new quirky heights. Hint for the uninitiated: 3X1's long fringe hem pairs are the brand's tell-tale signature you'd want to sport for ultimate street cred.
"We stand for having fun, and not taking yourself too seriously," explains co-founder Lela Becker of the LA-based denim house she brought to life with designer Tim Kaeding. Plush fabrics mixed with a rugged 'tude underpin Mother's wear-now, love-forever jeans. Its balance of comfort and edge leaves avid cool girl followers — that include Gigi Hadid and Miranda Kerr — wanting more.
LA-native artist Blaine Halvorson's innate belief in authenticity led to the bloom of MadeWorn. His obsession with rock 'n' roll garments harken back to the era's golden phase, where the best things were made to last — and MadeWorn's iconic band tees sure are, especially when paired with the perfect worn-in denim. Yes, please.
MadeWorn will be available on Net-a-Porter in November
