DEGAINE: DENIM & CASUAL WEAR FROM LA
Words and Images Judith Ecochard and Images courtesy of Degaine.
What It Is: Degaine is a newish line of jeans and casual wear with details that matter like unique metal hardware…
Think up-to-date classics, and COMFORTABLE basics.
The collection has fitted denim and pants, tops, and cover-ups- soon to hit the shelves of hip brick and mortar and online boutiques… and major department stores.
Who Makes It:
Fashion vet Gregory Abbou toiled with many cool denim companies including Taverniti So Jeans—which ironically, we were wearing the day we previewed the collection. The fit of those jeans- that we live in- is amazing.
So, we had an AHA moment (and très high expectations) for the French native, Abbou’s latest oeuvre.
What’s Happening For Spring:
Boyfriend, Skinny and Slim Cut Boot jeans…with stretchy, shape retaining 2% Elastin.
Vest: In denim, cotton.
For Guys: A pale pink blazer and white washed button ups and aged jeans- as well as dark rinse selections.
Little lace edged tees and one with hook/eye details that reminded us of our pricey Jean-Paul Gautlier top
Get It Now:
A large looped lacey cashmere scarf in black or ivory is warm and feminine.
Oversized cashmere cardigans with toggle shell buttons, and racer back cashmere tees are keepers.
Long, oversized plush cashmere sweater dress with matching scarf…idiot proof winter weather uniforms when paired with leggings and boots.
Top Look: We loved the motorcycle style sweatshirt (available in cream, taupe and dusk).
Who Wears It: Jennifer Aniston…and she wears it well.
Dégaine is French slang for someone who has ‘cool’ style.
MADE IN THE USA!!!!!!
For now, try….
