Spring Jeans: The Denim 'Must Haves' for Spring 18
THE RIPPED SKINNY
I'm not sure ripped jeans every left once they hit in the 90s. We love how these more subtle slits give a little attitude to the little black skinny.
Levi's knows every drop counts, that is why they are so serious about saving water.
Their designers are constantly thinking of new ways to cut back on H2O, such as
reusing water during production and creating new finishes that require less water than the traditional processes. They were one of the pioneers is using less water in production
and have shared their methods with others to inspire industry-wide progress.
These have just the right amount of fringe and will definitely set you apart from all the other cropped denim lovers this season. DL1961 is on a mission to rewrite the way denim is made. From responsibly sourced raw materials to partnering with some of the world’s most socially responsible vendors, all steps in their supply chain are optimized to save water and energy. And those beautiful blue colors? Their dyes come from natural pigments derived from plants which reduces the amount of toxins polluting our fresh water .AH-MAZE- ING.
We love the tonal embroidery on this pair of jeans which elevates them from the rest of the denim pack and with the rips in all the right places, you can't go wrong. AG’s is a positive example of business integrity. They have their own vertically integrated
facilities which gives them the unique ability to carefully monitor and control their production process. One example of their sustainability efforts is their commitment to reduce the amount of waste they generate. They cut their patterns in a way that maximizes fabric yardage and keeps the amount of leftover materials at a minimum. Excess scraps are collected for recycling on a weekly basis, and are repurposed as home and care insulation.
THE WIDE LEG CROP
You need a wide crop in your wardrobe this year and we think we have found the perfect pair for you! RE/DONE jeans are a celebration of the Levi’s jean’s past and a continuation of the jean’s individual story. They take the vintage denim apart at the seams, repurposing it as the fabric for a new pair of jeans.They manufacture their jeans in downtown Los Angeles using water conserving methods and no harsh chemicals. Their waste is limited as each pair is handpicked, hand cut, and distinctly one of a kind.
We love how soft, cozy and classic these jeans are. You can literally wear them with anything. A sustainable shop collaborating with a sustainable denim brand! The beautiful soft color is achieved through technological advanced processing techniques which reduces the use of water. Committed to innovation and environmental responsibility AGOLDE uses only non-gmo organic cotton for all it’s jeans.
THE HIGH RISE
Very sexy and rock and role, loving these tight, skinny high rise denim for any concert or night out. Reformation uses sustainable practices and has ethical work environments for all employees. They give back to the environment in the form of offsets. In exchange for the emissions and water used, they help plant forests, invest in clean water solutions and purchase landfill gas offsets.
These are super relaxed (but not so much that they fall off your hips) and made for walking your cute butt down to the farmers market for some fresh veggies. Made at the world’s cleanest denim factory. Unlike typical manufacturers, Everlane's LEED certified facility recycles 98% of its water, relies on alternative energy sources, and repurposes byproducts to create premium jeans – minus the waste.
