6 Questions With Joan Smalls + Shop Her New True Religion Collab

September 15, 2015 by Sara Alderman

Good news for denim fans (aka, everyone): Joans Smalls and True Religion have teamed up once again for fall 2015! Joan Smalls x True Religion round two includes 19 pieces, from skinny and flare jeans, to graphic tees and bralettes. For this collection, Joan was inspired by her cool off-duty style and wanted to bring the idea of “the street is your runway” to life. We say she pretty much nailed it. I mean, have you seen this coated hoodie?! Yep, that’s my fall uniform, right there.

We had the opportunity to chat with Joan about her new line (shop it here!). Check out what the supermodel had to say on what she looks for in a pair of jeans, he favorite piece from the line and more.

SHEfinds: What is your favorite piece from the collection?

Joan Smalls: The leather sleeve shirt is like super…it’s like an easy t-shirt, but then the details of the sleeves, I think it’s so cool. If you want to wear it during the day, you can throw on some shorts. You can wear it at night, and then it looks chic. It’s very easygoing, and I just love how the fabric feels on your skin.

SF: What do you look for in your perfect pair of jeans?

JS: The fit and wash. I need a wash that I know is going to stand the test of time. You know, that it’s not going to, be like oh, it’s one of those things that I can wear one season and then next, like, you wasted your money.

SF: What kind of fit do you like? Boyfriend? Skinny?

JS: Usually the skinny. I feel like it’s easier to wear. Like, I wear sneakers all the time with skinny, and if I’m going out at night, I just put on a pair of heels.

SF: Was there anything about the design process that was surprising? 

JS: You have to start months in advance. First you get fabric to make samples, then you go see the samples. I didn’t realize how long that would take.

SF: What is different about this collection compared to the first one?

JS: The timing. I could get more information or inspiration from my closet from things I was looking at and into at the time.

SF: What specifically inspired this collection?

JS: Just the strong woman that, you know, is chic but sporty at the same time. I think I was like marrying two groups of styles. You can’t put me in a box. Like, the sweatshirt is sporty, but then, if you put it with a pair of skinny jeans, that accentuates your curves.
