On one hand, you could wear the same pair of jeans every day and be fine. Probably nobody would notice. And jeans go with everything. On the other hand, with so much diversity in the field, why deprive yourself?
In the short Q&As below, get to know seven denim brands our buying team is excited to be working with: 3×1 NYC, Baldwin, FRAME, J Brand, Jean Shop, PAIGE and Raleigh.

He also spoke about the global travels that inspire Pangea printmaking, and the invaluable mentorship he’s received from Paige Adams-Geller, founder of PAIGE.

As much as I love seeing the wild and crazy outfits at Fashion Week, Camille Charrière (Camille Over the Rainbow) is my true style soul sister. Camille has a way of simplifying trends and making them both innovative and approachable. She is a master of the high-low mix and loves all things menswear-inspired. Denim is having another major season, and I am sold on this retro-modern shirtdress. Thanks, as always, for the continued inspiration, Camille!
