LOS ANGELES — In a time of heightened fiscal austerity, Civil Smith hopes to woo customers with hip basics that are as easy on the body as they are on the wallet in its fall debut.
Using only selvage denim, Civil Smith capped the wholesale prices for jeans at $82 for men’s and $65 for women’s. The men’s jeans are cut in a relaxed fit with enough distressing to yield a soft hand and a smattering of holes for character. Women’s jeans come in a weathered boyfriend version sitting low on the hips, as well as another loose style that cinches with a buckle in the back. For women who prefer a sculpted leg, there are also ponte di roma leggings that resemble five-pocket jeans on top with a ribbed hem at the bottom.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
