During my trip to New York, I took a tour of some denim showrooms, one of which is Current/Elliot. It’s a brand that I have been very interested in, as they have such a relaxed cool style, that’s fashionable without being cheesy or sloppy. The designers, Emily Current and Meritt Elliott have a background as vintage lovers and became stylists in LA. They hit the denim map with their boyfriend jeans and are the new rising must-have brand for the style conscious.
It was great to see all the new collections close up and in person. Luckily, I can fit the sample size (not something I’m used to) so I was able to try on the fits of their jeans. The denim all was lush, not too thin or stretchy, yet comfortable. I felt relaxed in all everything I tried on. It was also a great opportunity to try on a pair of the high waisted skinny jeans spotted on Erin in LA, I actually fell more in love with their high-waisted jegging which was more flattering and had a tighter fit around the calves.
I didn’t want to bore you with shots of skinny jeans (they tend to all look alike on film!) So I pulled some of my favorites from the racks. The sales lady told me that corduroy would be hot this fall, and they do have a great boyfriend cut trouser cord. But I was already spending too much time there, so I’ll have to come back to that when it comes out!

Business in front, party in the back, here is the Mullet short. I love the lengthy fray.
Have you heard of the Current/Elliott and Marni collaboration? It’s about to come out in stores soon, I love how this collaboration had concrete roles, all in Current/Elliott denim, some jeans were the C/E design with a Marni screen print, and some were Marni designs in the C/E denim. Quite genius really.
Here’s what they look like on…
All in all seeing these in the flesh and trying things on really made me want more what I already wanted. I love the relaxed nature of the jeans and the the stylish edge. It’s a great combination.
