Current/Elliott, J Brand, Joe’s — we love our denim heavy hitters. But we’re also fans of the up-and-comers. There is something incredibly rewarding about wearing a piece of clothing not everyone else owns. And it’s always cool knowing you started following a brand from the beginning. Which is why were were giddy to come across LACAUSA. A newish line out of Los Angeles. They are not a denim brand per say, but we nearly squealed when we saw their ‘denim’ overalls make the rounds online. Soft, lightweight, airy version of the season’s popular style? Swoon. The brand explained they don’t use denim, but “We love denim, and the way we get the denim effect is by using a tencel twill with a denim colored pigment dye … ” Standout ‘denim’ pieces include the Short Sleeved Endeavor Jacket, LA Overalls and Workwear Jacket. The rest of their fall ’13 and spring ’14 collections is full of super chic, luxurious basics, we’d like to own one or two or three of each items. Bonus, the prices are reasonable, most items retail south of $200.
