4 Pairs Of Dark Wash Denim You’re Gonna Want NOW

Dark denim is fantastic for numerous things; dark jeans work from day to night, they transition from causal to glam in an instant and are appropriate for office wearing.  If you’re without a pair of dark was indigo or grey, you may as well shoot yourself in the foot, because you’ll be handicapped during the dark color reigned fall season.

Acne’s Flex Icon are perfect for a slightly more casual look due to the contrast stitching, though Current/Elliott’s The Legging and Diesel’s Livy Biker 65Q skinnies are perfect high quality pieces that can double as a pair of tight trousers as well as denim.

AllSaints’ Ettin Ashbys are the deal of the day – $90 for a pair of medium indigo dark wash drainpipes with no hint of distressing, which is necessary to dress up any denim.

American Apparel.. BANKRUPT?!

It sounds like they’re really close.  Even if that’s the case, Mike & Chris bounced back from the big B, Christian Lacroix has been rescued – hell, even bore-tastic Escada has been saved from the brink of financial oblivion.

American Apparel’s 2nd quarter losses amount to $5-7 million in losses, and shares have plummeted 66% over the last year - all that equals a hair away from filing Chapter 7.

Over the last year AMAP has been expanding their design haul to so much more than the standard tees and undie variety, and it would be an immense shame if the brand would collapse.

Besides.. where the hell would hipsters and fashionphiles shop for their tank thongs?!!

Senso Takes Influence From Acne’s ADMIRE

I’ve been mulling over Senso’s Neve wedge for a while now, and I couldn’t put down exactly what was so familiar about them.  After going cross eyed at my laptop screen, it finally hit – the wedge shape was incredibly similar to Acne’s Admire buckle booties.

Though the Senso pair are a wee bit shorter, the shape of the boot is definitely alike.  For the money value, Australia’s Senso are the clear choices.. that is, unless you happen to have $900 laying around for a new pair of kicks.

Get Your Leg Wrapped By Wolford’s Bandage Tights

Striped tights have been done every which way, and they’re in no way done.  Check out Wolford’s bandage striped tights – there are two colors; tan/black and white/black.

Each pair of tights will set you back $65, but hey, they’re bound to get knocked off in a few weeks by the high street.

I’m yearning for the tan and black combo.. can you imagine layering those with some lace or even some army fatigues? There are endless possibilities!
