Polo Jeans Co. is adding two new jeans styles to its mix, calling each a "new fashion basic."
The first style is the Kelly, a women’s low-rise boot-cut jeans that are slim at the knee and thigh. The rise is one inch lower than the other jeans on the line, and there is a slight pitch from back to front on the body. It is produced in 10-ounce cross-hatch denim and available in light and medium sandblasted washes. The second style, the RL Langley, is a men’s loose-fit jeans with a straight leg and zip fly.
"The Kelly is our new fashion basic boot-cut jean," said Ross Klein, senior vice president of marketing for Polo Jeans. "It’s available in a variety of washes and fits and is meant to be a wardrobe staple and a nice mix between casual and dressy. It’s also priced so the customer can buy multiple pairs."
Polo Jeans unveiled the styles at a showroom party last week. The theme was "blue," in honor of the traditional denim color. Bubbles Bott, president of Polo Jeans Co., and Klein announced a new partnership the company will begin with JetBlue Airways that will include a national sweepstakes offer in the fall.
The Kelly retails from $49 for rigid fabric to $59 for stretch fabric.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
