Okay, so we are hardly out of winter 2018 and can’t even think about next winter already. But the thing is that we need to know what’s trending – styles, washes, fits…
This makes it easier for us to choose the kind of jeans we are going to “invest” in, because they’re classics. As opposed to fashion fads, that are really not worth spending a lot of money on.
Citizens of Humanity fits the bill in terms of “investment” jeans. Their denims are generally classics and you can shop for them right now, or next month, they will always be the core of our denim closets: boyfriends, skinnies, straight legs.
But besides their core collection, Citizens of Humanity also creates exceptional interesting capsule collection, and here are a few of their newest styles for the coming fall and winter seasons:
“For the Citizens of Humanity Fall 2019 season, a fresh range of innovative fabrications set the foundation for the women’s collection with an emphasis on femininity, comfort and ease. We continue to build a powerful assortment that speaks to the core of our brand values; elevated washes with a focus on craftsmanshipwhich exudes authenticity paired with impeccable fit. Taking subtle inspiration from the artisanal spirit of the 70s, the collection incorporates nostalgic elements of the decade throughout the entire season, particularly in the lightweight fabrics, authentic vintage washes, relaxed wide legs silhouettes, as well as the upcycled detailing and reconstructed paneling elements. A graphic palette of polished black, moody grey and blackened indigos add newness in wash direction, and are combined with authentic broken in blues, vintage pales, and winter white.Fall ’19 sees the introduction of Citizens of Humanity’s new wash concept named LUXE TOUCH, the expansion of the Organic Cotton Denim Collection, and continues to produce the Premium Vintage capsule and Fashion assortment, which has evolved for the new season.
For many years, Citizens of Humanity has been using advanced technology to process denim products, including laser and ozone and has invested a great deal to practice positive steps in creating a better environment. Building off of the importance of sustainability throughout production, the Citizens of Humanity Fall launch also sees the expansion of the Organic Cotton Collection. Originally introduced for Spring ’19, Citizens of Humanity offers a collection of high-quality denim product crafted in Organic and recycled Cotton made from waste products such as leftover cotton and wood materials. New Organic cotton blends are introduced including a fluid Lyocell, which is soft to the touch, as well as a stretch fabrication made from recycled waste products from Japan. Newness in fabric also sees the expansion of Citizens of Humanity’s SCULPT offerings, which are made from a one-of-a-kind Lycra weaving technique that has the power to shape and hold. Building off the high stretch category, the SCULPT capsule incorporates innovative super soft weaves, with a luxurious “cashmere-like” hand with a new concept named LUXE TOUCH. Comfort stretch continues as the brand’s most coveted fabric for the season, and has even expanded throughout the capsule, including Premium Vintage. Innovative lighter weight weaves with vintage looks, are soft to the touch and wearer friendly, and speaks to an easy and seasonless approach.
Moving into Fall, Citizens of Humanity has broadened the fit diversity, with a focus on controlled volume as well as forward, wide leg silhouettes cut in lightweight denim. In Spring, we introduced the Annina Denim Trouser and continue to build this fit out in natural and dark hues as we approach Fall. The McKenzie, an easy relaxed fit with a subtly curved inseam adds volume to the range of straight styles.Bootcuts with 90’s connotations also feel fresh and modern again, which led us to add The Georgia, an elongated bootcut crafted in comfort stretch.The Amelia High Rise Flare is another leading style from the Fall collection- with an ankle grazing inseam and 70’s references, this new fit is part of our Premium Vintage collection and offered in comfort stretch.Alongside this, Citizens of Humanity will be expanding the denim size range for the Fall collection.
Citizens of Humanity continues to develop the Premium Vintage capsule every season to highlight the intricate craftsmanship of the denim. For Fall, each wash has been elevated and meticulously executed withintention in every detail. Thoughtfully placed distressing, fade marks, and expertly crafted repair and piecing speaks to an “upscale vintage” inspired appeal. The Nica Jacket in Hometown is a new denim jacket that incorporates these interesting upcycled elements with a folk-inspired flower applique on the back body, as well as added pieced and patch repair details at the elbow. Feminine novelty elements such as patchwork and ruffles are applied for a unique twist and reinterpretation of classic five-pocket fits. The Rhiannon Flare is an easy flared denim style with reconstructed pieced side seam panels and hem band, along with patched knee details. Another fashion favorite is the Mandi Patched Skirt, an A-line fit with pieced insets at the side seams and removed back pocket. Due to overwhelming demand, Citizens of Humanity’s all-in-one range has expanded beginning with the introduction of The Miki Jumpsuit – a new utilitarian inspired style with a cropped inseam, half sleeve with puff, and pinched waist for a feminine silhouette. Newness in overalls sees the introduction of The Cher, an ultra-feminine silhouette with seventies connotations with a curved back yoke that fits closely to the body. Continuing to build on the foundation set in Spring 19, this season’sSURPLUS capsule blends classic utilitarian references with feminine twists through thoughtful detailing and silhouette. Textural fabrications with utility undertones are introduced in French canvas and herringbone weaves. Fabrics are garment dyed to a color palette grounded in rich dark olive, inky blue, washed black paired with dusty tones of lavender, mist, biscuit and taupe.A subtle puff sleeve appears across the tops range, and easy shapes emphasize a fresh relaxed attitude. Half sleeves, waisted silhouettes, and multi-functional pocket detailing update classic surplus staples. The Gaia, a rework of the classic cargo pant offers an easy, wearable fit. Resting on the hip, with a relaxed tapered leg and cut in a soft-handed comfort stretch, which can be worn in a multitude of ways.Classic American sweat shirting and Japanese coarse jersey round out the offer and work back well to softer palettes in denim and washed blacks. A tight package of SURPLUS outerwear with utilitarian influences are introduced including the Binx Jacket which has upcycled connotations throughout including pieced jean jacket sleeves cut in a washed black denim. The Vivienne Jacket is another new addition with a relaxed fit, drawstring waist, and pleated sleeve detail.”
