Naked & Famous Fall/Winter 2011 Preview

Fall is just around the corner! Here is a quick preview of just a few of the new denim models to expect from Naked & Famous this coming season. We expect these models to arrive in store in August 2011.

Naked & Famous "Japan Heritage Selvedge". This model will be offered in the skinny guy and the weird guy cut (weird guy photographed above). The fabric is a 14oz selvedge made in Japan which has an inconsistent weave and yarn size giving a vintage look and texture.

The selvedge line will be white with red accent. Notice the light tones coming through the indigo yarn. This fabric is often used by Japanese cult heritage denim brands.

The surface has a hairy texture and a soft touch.

Naked & Famous "Pomegranate Selvedge". This model will be available in weird guy (as show above). The fabric is 14oz selvedge made in Japan using a pomegranate blend of natural & synthetic dye for the vibrant color.

Selvedge line is white with red accent. This is a more true representation of the color.

The surface is crisp, yet soft to the touch. This fabric will produce nice vertical fading with white/gray tones showing through with extensive wear.

Introducing Japan Blue Denim: Coming June 2011


Japan Blue is a new concept by fabric maker Collect, Co, LTD and makes its official debut outside of Japan this summer. Collect is the same fabric manufacture behind Momotaro denim and has a deep routed tradition of denim making in Kojima, Okayama. For its debut season outside of Japan, Japan Blue teamed with Momotaro to make several collaborative works.

This season will feature denims with distinct details that made Momotaro denim famous and fabrics and fits of the Japan Blue line. Japan Blue will feature two fits. One will be the same "tight straight" fit used in the Momotaro line and one will fit will be "skinny straight" and will taper from the thigh to the leg opening. The "skinny straight" fit is a slimmer cut than currently offered by Momotaro.

Here are a few more photos of the upcoming Japan Blue x Momotaro collaboration denims. More details to come in the near future.

Spellbound Fall Winter 2011 Lookbook


I am really beginning to love Spellbound as a label. Spellbound is known for denim, but I like the direction they are taking with the overall collection. Besides the intricate details and incredible fabrics which can only truly be noticed in person, I like the refreshing palate and slightly loose comfortable appeal. A lot of this collection is very wearable, easy to layer, and great for year round wear. Enjoy the sneak peak for the coming fall collection!
