What: Current Elliott Jeans
Who's saying what about them: Vogue says they are "the most refreshing denim line to come out of LA's jean scene in a long, long time." Nylon says they are "jeans so faded and scuffed that you could run them under a tractor and nobody would notice."
Who's been spotted wearing similar styles: Katie, Victoria, Heidi, and Gwen have all been photographed lately looking like they're wearing their very attractive husbands' jeans. (Check out what SheFinds had to say about the boyfriend jean trend when it first hit the scene.)
What Emily Current and Merrit Elliott say about the jeans: "We found the cutest stuff and made if flattering and comfortable with a little stretch, that look just like vintage. Like you went to the flea market in Paris or Topanga Canyon and found them in a pile for $2. Like someone else had them for 20 years already, and you've been wearing them for five."
They're pricey but we kind of love them: The jeans are made from new sweater-soft Japanese denim and cut like Levi's and Lee's originals. The girls take vintage '70s styles and give them a modern look and fit. The two celebrity stylists not only created jeans for the new line, but dresses, jackets, skirts, and shorts as well. They look so comfy we want some now — and apparently so does everyone else because they're selling out online before they're even in stock.
