Last week I stopped by the first Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren store in NYC for a press preview and I felt like a kid in a candy store when I arrived. Each store spans more than 4,000 square feet and highlights a complete selection of men’s and women’s apparel, accessories and premium denim. The stores’ interiors is really cool, it is a reminiscent of an artist’s urban loft, featuring an open ceiling, brick walls, worn wooden floor, metal-framed windows and weathered doors. Polished aluminum spotlights and pendant lights illuminate the space, while black-and-white photography, vintage concert posters and distressed black leather furniture complete the factory atmosphere.
The brand offers a new approach to denim and sportswear, capturing the weathered character of vintage-inspired pieces and effortlessly styling them with an eclectic spirit. Earthy and bohemian with an emphasis on rugged individualism, Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren is a modern statement of free-spirited, down-to-earth style.
The Spring 2013 collection celebrates the expression of independence with clothing designed to infuse every adventure or cultural exploit with personal style. The collection features a bounty of authentic denim and classic patterns that pop up in unexpected places for the mix-and-match mark of the modern-day troubadour. Weathered and work-worn pieces are icons of rugged individualism and self-expression. Textural yet understated—this spring, the brand’s heritage is transformed through the eyes of experience and the vision of its beholder. The printed denim collection is a bold statement, turning elaborate patterns into the foundation of free-spirited looks. Feminine styles, like antique paisley, or strong graphics, like southwestern chevrons, add a new dimension to denim. Overall, the collection features a surge of color, from zardozi-inspired details to bohemian bright denim, for eclectic spring style.
Love D&S, really cool vibe. Check out the NYC store after the jump…
Last Thursday, Opening Ceremony and American Express invited me to an exclusive preview and shopping event at Opening Ceremony’s four-story flagship store in New York. At the event OC’s co-founder, Carol Lim talked about her inspiration and design process for the Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Guests were also able to pre-order FW13 pieces as well as get a special 20% discount off to American Express Cardmembers for all items in the store (excluding the FW13 collection).
I love the women’s FW13 collection, inspired by the City of Sin – Las Vegas, the collection channels the radiant Strip and its high-energy decadence through opulent fabrics, such as lush furs and satins, exuberant embellishments and eye-catching graphic prints. The color palette includes jewel tones of crimson, bordeaux, indigo, plum and crystal blue. If you didn’t attend the event, be sure to check out the collection at Opening Ceremony and select retailers beginning in August 2013.
American Express made this event possible. Opening Ceremony is part of a program at American Express where they celebrate Cardmembers and their sources of inspiration and follow the creative process.
