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” »

Vogue Italia‘s editor in chief, Franca Sozzani, recently took to the blogs to express how hard she’s found it to write a speech for her appearance at Havard University on April 2. She has decided to discuss the controversial topic of body image and explained, “It’s a commitment and nothing must be left to chance. You speak and know that each word carries weight and consequences.” [Telegraph]

With Madonna clad in Agent Provocateur on the cover of her new single “Girl Gone Wild” and stars like Kylie Minogue and Elle Macpherson launching their own lingerie collections left and right, The Wall Street Journal reports that über-sexy undergarments are becoming more mainstream.

What works in New York won’t always work in London, but fair to say that collaborating with some of the city’s hottest young designers on limited-edition denim is good business here and across the pond. So following J Brand’s Proenza Schouler jean collab, CEO Jeff Rudes decided to extend the work-together spirit in England, too. The 5×5 project calls upon five of London’s best designers and labels (Christopher Kane, Peter Pilotto, Richard Nicoll, Meadham Kirchhoff, and Erdem) to put their spin on J Brand’s wares. Kane went camo (hey, we’ve been feeling that print, too!), Nicoll put in leather panels, Meadham Kirchhoff patched a rough-and-tumble boy-cut pair, and Pilotto got powdery, and Erdem—for his first denim design—chose soft blue florals. Each pair is available at a single London retailer (from Harvey Nicks to Browns), but stateside admirers can get them at Jeffrey New York and Intermix Online this Friday.
