FOREVER LEATHER

30 Aug

The last weekend of summer is here, with it comes the arrival of cooler weather essentials. Specifically, one of our favorite trends for fall: luxe leather. Whether you splurge or stick within your budget, real and faux leather pieces always stay true to a classic aesthetic and hold strong from season to season. Here, three of the most stylish girls we know show us how to wear the trend with their favorite go-to denim pieces:

Denim Squared

Aimee Song of Song of Style greets the season in a relaxed-yet-chic outfit that proves with incredible styling, a Canadian tuxedo is anything but ironic. Her Slightly distressed 7FAM denim and a classic chambray shirt actually create the perfect palette for the jacket of the season: a rocker-worthy leather topper. Want to boost your edge factor? Add studded accessories and an extreme heel for a sharp and pointed emphasis.

Go Graphic

Printed denim and faux leather? Yes, you can wear both trends. Jane Aldridge keeps the focus on her 7FAM high-shine coated cropped skinnies by pairing them with classic black pieces. Wear with minimal accessories for a sleek modern look.

Double Duty

Kelly Framel of The Glamourai, transitions into fall with the wear-everywhere 7FAM coated pants paired with a silk top and leather jacket. Who says leather on leather is strictly for dudes on motorcycles? The silk top adds a feminine touch to the otherwise bad-ass outfit.

Anatomy of a Jean: Luxe Performance

1 Aug

Wonder what went into creating a jean with the perfect fit and ultimate durability? Our designers (aka our denim engineers) spent years researching what you want in a jean, and then years developing a pair to meet these requirements: an enduring fit and luxe feel. Essentially, a jean that could handle your busy lifestyle while making it all the more stylish. Enter: Luxe Performance

So, here is how we made our best engineered jean yet, proving that performance and perfection go hand in hand:

Let’s get even deeper into the anatomy of these jeans:

Image

Engineering: this isn’t your ordinary denim. New advanced technology warps the cotton with high-stretch fibers, and then weaves them all together on a patented machine unique to this fabric.

Image

Recovery: Luxe performance denim has less than 1% growth and over 95% recovery, no matter how long or frequently the jeans are worn.

Image

Performance: From day to night or through an international flight, each pair of jeans performs optimally, retaining the exact same shape and feel it started with.

Image

Comfort: The inside of the jeans has a cashmere-like feel achieved through an exclusive brushing process that combs the inside of the denim to make it feel as soft and luxe as possible.

Image

Craftsmanship: it takes 25% longer to create a pair of Luxe Performance jeans due to detailed process of brushing the denim until it’s incredibly soft.

Image

Luxury: Never before has denim delivered this level of quality and comfort. The luxurious texture and unparalleled softness make these the next level in denim innovation.
