Just Landed: Marni + Current/Elliott denim collaboration at Nordstrom

Hang on to your hat; fall’s on its way.

By Laura Cassidy August 9, 2010

The boyfriend jean of the moment, and this fall, goes both ways: Dressed up and dressed down.

The boyfriend jean is back. Or maybe it never left. One thing’s for sure: It’s never had such a fine pedigree.

Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni teamed up with the Current/Elliott crew (those masters of ye olde old man jeans); their denim-only capsule collection includes a handful of roomy, hip-slung, pre-thrashed styles; of which Via C at the downtown Nordstrom has two. (If you’re lucky, Ms. Annie Sparrow, she of the much-missed Tulip – now of the iconic silvery-gray shopping bag, will be there when you go.)

Now, let’s be clear on this: Castiglioni could have teamed up with whomever is responsible for those Kirkland jeans at Costco and we’d be there to try them on. No one understands – or plays so nicely with – color, shape, femininity and asexuality like she does. And Current/Elliott definitely knows how to coax you out of upwards of $200 bucks for a pair of jeans.

Nordstrom got one drop at the beginning of the month and is getting another at the end of the month. Plot accordingly.
