Minimalism is still the move this summer, but we’re happy to see designers getting a little more playful. Where’s the fun in wearing a crisp all-white ensemble if you can’t throw in a crazy clutch? Particularly one shaped like a turquoise eye. In fact, we’ve noted a lot of eye motifs lately, from Kenzo’s beloved Eye of Horus to cartoonish, graphic designs. A delicate necklace or pair of earrings can inject any outfit with some subtle surreal spirit, but the notion of wearing giant green eyes on our toes is almost too fun to pass up.

When it comes to collaborations, it doesn’t get much better than working with J Brand. Today, the company announced that London-based up-and-comer Simone Rocha is the newest addition to its roster. And if the success of past collaborators such as Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane is any indication, this is a stellar move for the rising star.
In fact, Rocha is in a roll–the Central Saint Martins graduate was honored with the British Fashion Council’s Emerging Designer award just two months ago, and she will present her Fall ’14 collection in less than two weeks. Those eager to get their hands on the yet-to-be-revealed Simone Rocha x J Brand looks, however, will have to wait a while—the collection will be revealed in July, and available online at jbrandjeans.com later in the year.
Emma Watson set the Internet abuzz on Sunday night when she turned up at the Golden Globes in a backless red apron dress with cropped black cigarette pants from Raf Simons’ most recent Dior Haute Couture collection. Lovers and haters alike took to Twitter to comment. The Bling Ring actress, for her part, said, “It felt original. It felt a bit different.” We couldn’t agree more. In our book, Watson’s age-appropriate outfit raised the sartorial bar for awards season attire. In any case, it sure beat another predictable gown.
Coincidentally or not, the dress-over-pants look had a particularly strong showing at the recent Pre-Fall collections. Slips were paired with cropped trousers at both 3.1 Phillip Lim and Elizabeth and James. And we noticed similar takes on layering at Acne Studios and J Brand, only their pants were closer to leggings, cut from a scuba-like satin and leather, respectively.
In the thick of New York fashion week, we’re all about easy dressing. If an outfit looks chic, on-trend, and it’s comfortable, we consider it a major win. Some of the latest offerings from J Brand make this almost too easy. From kicky skirts and colorful leather to featherweight blouses and sleek coats, its latest collection has everything we want for fall. We’re especially loving the soft blush hues. When mixed with J Brand’s dark leather pieces, the resulting looks strike a perfect balance between sultry and sweet. Shop our favorite new pieces by J Brand, below.

Sam Rollinson stormed onto the scene in 2010, after Burberry cast her in its Fall ad campaign. Since, it’s been nothing but up for the model. Last season alone she walked in a total of sixty-two shows, and today we can reveal that Rollinson is the face of J Brand‘s Fall ’13 campaign. Shot by Craig McDean and styled by Karl Templer, the images (which debut here, above, and below) are sleek, severe, and pared down—allowing the label’s dark denim, leather jackets, and track pants, as well as Rollinson and, of course, her razor-sharp cheekbones, to pop. The model also stars in the campaign for the Little Black Jean collection—J Brand’s new range, which, launching this June, was created exclusively for Selfridges’ new Denim Studio. The Fall ’13 ads will hit magazines this August. Continue Reading “Rollinson Rising” »
