Denim Defined: J Brand

5 11 2012

J Brand, Beth and Blake

In honor of Denim Week, we’ve asked our denim designers to tell us about their Spring Collections and what style they’re craving.

J Brand opens up the closets of 3 of their employees to 5th/58th

In honor of Bergdorf Goodman’s Denim Week, we decided to raid the closets of three of our most fashionable employees. We asked our Vice President of Design, Public Relations Manager, and Customer Service Manager to style a few of our classic styles, showing the versatility of our signature dark wash, skinny jean.

Introducing Beth, our PR Manager, who leads J Brand’s global press efforts. She works closely with all of the top fashion editors toshowcase our pieces in magazines, such as Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and GQ. As one of the most stylish ladies of J Brand, she owns nearly every style in our creative archives. We took a peek in her closet to get a closer look at Beth’s overflowing wardrobe.

Wearing J Brand Classic: 620 in Hewson

1. How would you describe your style
I’m a bit more edgy and experimental with my fashion, while keeping it clean and classic – in line with the J Brand DNA. Right now, I cannot take off my J Brand leather leggings!! I love adding biker elements, a neon handbag or an Isabel Marant bootie always in the mix to keep the look my own! I am always wearing my rings and bracelets that I have collected from my world travels – each one with a very special meaning. I never take those pieces off!

2. How do you wear your favorite classic J Brand jean
“A Venti Starbucks soy latte and my iPhone are always my main accessories! With clothing, I’m all about mixing different brands – J Brand is always the canvas for my look! Today I had a photo shoot and interview with the owner of J Brand, so I dressed my 620 in Hewson up while keeping the look a tough with double leather (biker jacket and leather tee) – J Brand Ready to Wear Baez leather tee with a little H&M short sleeved collar blouse underneath, Christopher Kane SS12 white leather jacket and Alexander Wang SS12 Joan Mule Pumps”

“Because my work day starts early in the morning and can end late in the evening after a dinner with an editor, a stylist, or my best friends, I like to leave the house and be set through wherever the day will take me. Day to night with maybe a few make-up and shoe tweaks!”

4. What makes this jean classic
“The fit, the fabric, the versatility of the wash! I can wear these jeans to a photo shoot, shopping at the Grove, on a 15-hour airplane ride, or just hanging out at home – with booties, pumps, heels or sneakers. Nothing compares to my Power Stretch classic J Brand leggings!”

Wearing J Brand Classic: Maria in Starless

1. How would you describe your style
“Unfussy, simple with an edge. I love pairing a clean skinny jean with a good heel or wedge—it elongates! Who doesn’t want the illusion of long and lean?”

2. How do you wear your favorite classic J Brand jean
“I styled this look with YSL Tribute Sandal in Black Leather, a J Brand Ready To Wear tee, and the Benatar Leather Jacket.”

4. What makes this jean classic
“I love the Maria fit in Starless because the fabric is light and stretchy but holds everything in and keeps it’s shape! The wash is dark and clean which is versatile to style. I love this jean because it’s skinny and high-waisted.”

3. Where would you be seen in this outfit
“Everywhere….work, out to dinner with friends, on a date night with my hubby, school meetings! The power stretch denim is so comfortable that I can wear it while working with our model during a fitting, or running around L.A. with my two year old.”

A former NYC resident, Julie misses the very “Classic New York” feel of weekend afternoons spent at Bergdorf’s – shopping then stopping on the 7th floor for an afternoon cocktail overlooking the park. Now residing in Los Angeles, Julie currently is J Brand’s Manager of our Customer Service and Sales Support team. She partners with sales reps and buyers to make sure our latest pieces are quickly reaching retail stores.

Wearing J Brand Classic: Maria in Hewson

1. How would you describe your style
“Playful. I like outfits that juxtapose elements of casual and dressy, simple and overstated, sophisticated and whimsical, and the subdued and loud – keeping it lighthearted and fun!”

2. How do you wear your favorite classic J Brand jean
“I love pairing the Maria in Hewson with a more cropped fitting top or a button-down tied in front – something that accentuates the high-waisted fit of this style. And of course, any outfit of mine isn’t complete without loads of jewelry to adorn my wrists and the highest heels I can find in my closet!”

3. Where would you be seen in this outfit
“This outfit is easy and comfortable – I’d wear it to a day at the office or to a simple dinner

 

out with friends. I love the Hewson wash because it can easily transition from casual to dressy with a

change of top. In L.A. everything is so spread out, you don’t always have time to go home and change, so I always keep some accessory

options with me in case something comes up last minute. When I’m wearing my J Brand classic I never have to worry about being under or over dressed because they always look just right!”

4. What makes this jean classic
“Fit, Fit, Fit! The high-rise and skinny fit of the Maria is flattering on everyone, and at 5’0 tall, I love how this style can give the impression of longer legs!”
