I live for denim jackets. They always remind me of summer and I really love the all American vibe they give off, so when I spotted this denim jacked adorned with faux fur at The Shoe Box I immediately had to get it. The jacket is by the brand Harvey Faircloth. I personally hadn’t heard of the brand until the denim encounter, but once I did more research I fell in love with the brand. The denim jacket I am wearing above is an old Levi’s denim coat completely remade, but the cool part about it is that it still has the Levi’s logo! How cool?!? When I did more research into the Harvey Faircloth I found their love of vintage clothing is what inspired the brand to come to fruition.
“Since assuming creative control for the Fall 2013 season, Creative Director Christopher Rivers has brought a fresh perspective and a new cohesion to the brand, informed by his extensive background in luxury, tailoring and merchandising. A longtime part of the design team behind Dodo + Angelika, Mr. Rivers finds constant inspiration in the authenticity of classic style and the uncomplicated ease of sportswear. Born and raised in New York City, Mr. Rivers' design technique is entirely self-taught and guided by a discriminating eye. With Harvey Faircloth, Mr. Rivers feels he has found an amazing culmination of authenticity, personal identity and vision -- with American Dream.” (www.harveyfaircloth.com)
You can really pair almost anything with this jacket, but for this look I went with an old ripped pair of Rag & Bone jeans, and an oversized Amanda Uprichard blouse. I wanted to be able to really show off the jacket without any distraction. I thought I was only going to be able to wear this jacket for a few weeks, but the weather in NYC has been beyond gorgeous. I have been pairing this coat with oversized sweaters and have been perfectly adept for the temperature! Check out this brand online or in stores at The Shoe Box, Intermix, & Barneys if you havnt already!
Hope everyone is having a good week… finally through the hump!
