New Zealand label Stolen Girlfriends Club is equal parts rock & roll swagger and urban emo. Named for the moments after a fresh breakup when the greatest songs are written and the best art produced, the SGC denim line includes styles titled ‘Teen Spirit’ and ‘Grey Days.’ Interesting dye jobs add to the drama- the men’s stirrup jean (yes, stirrup!) comes in a waxy black, and the over-bleached Grey Days jean (available for men and women) reworks 80s acid wash into a stormy look.
Cool kids Juliette Lewis and Kate Bosworth are reportedly fans, as are stylish mags Dazed & Confused and Paper. Stolen Girlfriends Club is stocked in New Zealand, Australia and Japan, but if you’re not those places, check out pitbullmansion.com or zendie.com for a dose of teen angst/breakup recovery.
