J. Brand continues to embrace its inner Anglophile. The Los Angeles denim brand has announced it will team up with Brit designer Hussein Chalayan for a capsule collection that will hit stores in the beginning of autumn, says Elle UK. The collaboration comes after J. Brand’s partnering last year with London retail behemoth Topshop. As for the denim styles themselves, we’ll have to wait and see — though knowing Chalayan’s avant-garde tendencies, don’t expect straightforward five-pockets or simple washes.
It’s been a big year for Chalayan already. His Fall 2009 collection for Paris Fashion Week received a warm critical response. Plus, the designer is currently being honored by London’s Design Museum with an exhibition entitled “From Fashion and Back,” on view through May 17.
