LOS ANGELES — Kym Gold-Lubell is making a comeback.
The designer who cofounded True Religion Brand Jeans with her husband, Jeffrey Lubell, but left last year after a much-publicized divorce, has partnered with accessories designer Giannci Genau to launch premium denim label Babakul for spring. Translated as “hippie” in French, Babakul is readying its first shipment of skinny jeans that zip tight at the ankle; wide-leg trousers; baggy boyfriend fits cut into shorts and jeans and tie-back vests. While men’s suiting fabric, plaid and stretch twill round out the portfolio of fabrics, Gold-Lubell said denim, most of which will be lighter cloths weighing as little as 9.5 oz., will make up 80 percent of the line.

"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)
