Rich & Skinny Spring 2010


Rich and Skinny Spring 2010 4

Though the brand name may come off as obnoxious to some, Rich & Skinny does a hell of a job with putting out great jeans. Ironically, you don’t have to be rich to buy a pair and you don’t have to be skinny to have them fit and look good but they jeans will make you feel that way.

Created by two designers who know the game, Michael Glasser (designer of 7 for All Mankind) and Joie Rucker (founding name of label “Joie“), the dynamic duo bring together their design sensibilities and understanding of the denim industry to produce denim that customers want.

Rich & Skinny got its start late 2006 and  steadily gained momentum after appearing on celebs such as Jessica Alba and Rihanna. The denim styles are varied, giving a little something for everyone, and built for comfort due to the use of unique European denim that blends cotton with Lycra Spandex. For this season, Rich & Skinny’s signature “Sleek” jeans come in a destroyed camel-color finish while the “Super Skinny” get a subtle acid wash treatment in light and dark blues. Also new for the Spring 2010 collection are cute cut-offs with interesting cuff detail.

The site is down for now but you can get a jist of the styles at online retailers like Revolve Clothing.

Buying a well fitting pair of jeans is hard work – I can’t tell you how many tantrums I’ve thrown in shops because of ill fitting, uncomfortable jeans – and let’s be honest, they are a staple in almost all wardrobes, we are all looking for the perfect pair – so why not buy from two designers that are old hands at the denim game?

Created by power-team Michael Glasser (Seven For All Mankind) and Joie Rucker (Joie Jeans), Rich & Skinny is a luxury brand with a decadent spin on well fitting, comfy jeans.

The brand that has graced such legs as Blake Lively, Beyonce, Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Alba, Rich and Skinny jeans have released an impressive Fall/Winter look book that is sure to please.

So what can you expect from the new women’s collection? Expect the usual fits; the relaxed fit of the classic ‘Boyfriend’ jean, the popular ‘Sleek’ fit – with a low rise waist and slim leg, the bootleg cut ‘Rich‘ jean, the low-rise waist bell-bottom fit of the ‘Belissima‘ jean and the ‘Super Skinny‘ leg jean (which I’m sure you can expect to be a super skinny fit). With vintage washes and distressed look pieces as part of the new collection, each pair of jeans is finished with a silk waistband lining and the signature ‘R‘ button.

For the men there are three fits – ‘Strong‘, ‘Bold‘ and ‘Chill,‘ each created with a high thread count for optimal comfort and finished with the signature ‘R‘ button, designed to look like vintage cufflinks.
