Karlie Kloss has more in common with Taylor Swift than a new blond ‘do—it turns out the BFFs have a matching weekend uniform, too. Spotted at Sarabeth’s in Tribeca, their off-duty style seems to consist of simple T-shirts, ladylike black bags, and—what else?—denim. Swift opted for distressed cutoffs, while Kloss gave us serious white jean envy. Both looks epitomized a laid-back summer vibe.

I was a slow convert to Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent. Lately I’d been coming around—Cherry Glazerr’s “Had Ten Dollaz,” which played on a hypnotic loop at the show in February, became one of my favorite tunes of 2014—but what won me over once and for all is this black-and-white ad. Come September, I want to look exactly like model Grace H. does in this Slimane-lensed picture: sharp blazer; retro blouse; and skinny, belted jeans with a super-high waistband. I’ve never spent remotely close to $575 on denim and I haven’t worn a belt with jeans since the nineties, but I’m considering it for these babies.

Swiss photographer Karlheinz Weinberger is having a bit of a moment of late. Last year, Rizzoli published Rebel Youth, his snaps of disaffected Zurich teens, accompanied by an exhibition at New York’s Swiss Institute, which drew fans like Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, who hosted a party for the show. It’s not hard to guess why. Weinberger’s shots are reminiscent of street-style photography, both in their verité style and their attention to the fashionable details. For a new book, the first to focus on Weinberger’s early work, the Swiss Institute zeroed in on one fashionable detail in particular: his fascination with blue jeans.
Jeans interposes shots of Weinberger’s lovers with unidentified young men photographed in the street, “all,” Swiss Institute director Gianni Jetzer told Dazed Digital, “united by the vestimentary extravaganza of jeans.” (There’s a mouthful.) Those vestments were more than just denim. In postwar Switzerland, jeans came to stand for the new, the radical, and above all, the American: the unofficial outfit of rebel youth. Before they were For All Mankind, denim was for workingmen and bad boys only. Here’s a reminder.
