Launching a new jeans line in today’s highly saturated market is no easy task, but Frame Denim‘s Erik Torstensson and Jens Grede have a definite leg up on the competition. The Swedish entrepreneurial duo share the editor in chief role at Industrie magazine and cofounded the Saturday Group, which represents influential fashion brands through its creative, talent, and public relations agencies. “For the first time in a long while, we felt we had the headspace to do something new. Doing a denim brand for our friends, many of them in the fashion industry themselves, was something Erik and I always wanted,” Grede told Style.com. “We were and are driven about doing something perfect. Frame is a passion project that got serious.”
Produced entirely in Venice, California, Frame jeans have a classic, slim fit and come in basic washes. “We wanted that fashion look in that California quality, and I think we made it happen,” said Grede. The “Le Skinny de Jeanne” style has already been spotted on the likes of Miranda Kerr, Dree Hemingway, and Anja Rubik—talk about strategic product placement. Frame’s premiere collection also offers the “Garçon,” which is more of a relaxed, boyfriend cut (but still skinny), as well as colored jeans and cutoff shorts. The collection launches at Barneys and Barneys.com today. Torstensson and Grede created a zippy video for the collection starring Jessica Miller, which debuts here on Style.com (below). And there’s more where that came from—the duo plans to produce a fashion film each season.
Rag & Bone’s Spring ’13 campaign may have featured polished Alasdair McLellan-lensed images of Kate Moss, but that doesn’t mean designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have gone all glossy on us. Today, Rag & Bone revives its DIY Project for the rag & bone/JEAN line. Having originated in 2011, the experimental ads have previously starred the likes of Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, and Candice Swanepoel (just to name a few), each of whom were given a digital camera, a bag of rag & bone/ JEAN clothes, and free range to shoot and wear whatever they pleased.
“We think [the DIY Project] is a unique way to show the styles of these cool girls, and it also gives people the opportunity to see their respective personalities and experiences,” says Neville. This season, the designers offer a DIY double whammy, having asked both Camille Rowe (above) and Poppy Delevingne (below) to document their rag & bone/JEAN experiences. “I shot my campaign in Mustique, where I was with my boyfriend, sister and friends for New Year’s. I also took some photos in London, which is where my home and heart lie. The final part was taken by my boyfriend in the fields of West Sussex,” said Delevingne. French-born, New York-based Rowe also had her boyfriend snap some images, which show the model in her Soho loft. “I think he’s a pretty talented photographer,” says Wainwright. The girls’ (and their boyfriends’) Spring ’13 DIY handiwork debuts here, exclusively on Style.com.
The accessory of the season isn’t a shoe or a bag. Here at Style.com, we’re going with the wide-brimmed hat. Variations on the statement-making topper turned up at Victoria Beckham, Acne, and Costume National, but, in our view, the brims to beat are Hedi Slimane’s at Saint Laurent. Since the Spring shows, floppy felt chapeaux have all but replaced fedoras on the street. Recently, we’ve spotted models Miranda Kerr, Tilda Lindstam, and Daiane Conterato wearing them. Elizabeth Olsen is in the fan club, too.

The 2012 Olympic Games are gearing up to be quite the fashionable affair. More reports have surfaced that the likes of supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Lily Cole, Stella Tennant, and Georgia May Jagger are expected to strut their stuff at the closing ceremony in clothes by Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood. The Englishwomen are doing it for love of country rather than financial reward—they’ll receive only 1 pound sterling each for their participation. [Telegraph]
In other supermodel news, Miranda Kerr divulged some of her secrets to Vogue U.K. The Victoria’s Secret stunner says she wanted to be a gymnast when she was younger, but that she was too tall and that modeling was never part of her life plan. Kerr also addressed the rumors of her talent for singing. “I love singing for my own benefit,” she said. “But will there be an album one day? Who knows? It’s not on my schedule right now.” [Vogue U.K.]

How many different variations of a Louis Vuitton handbag can you make? 80,000, apparently. The French house is launching a new service starting July 30, where customers can create their own bespoke handbags at the Haute Maroquinerie, a private salon in Vuitton’s Bond Street store. [Vogue U.K.]
Last week, George Michael tweeted the news that Kate Moss would be the star of his new music video and now you can get a sneak peek at the supermodel’s performance.
