Runway Review | Frame Denim Fall 2015:
The founders of Frame Denim are versed in the art of patience. Since launching with just one pair of jeans, 2012's Le Skinny, Jens Grede, Erik Torstensson, Nico Peyrache, and Josh Levine have slowly increased their offerings season by season. A wash here, a new cut there, finally a shirt. No doubt it has been at a rate that frustrates their group of model and other most-likely-to-be-Instagrammed fans, many of whom were on hand to see, celebrate, and try on the brand's Fall collection.
An homage to '70s New York sportswear, it was Frame's most fully realized lineup to date, with suede jeans and culottes, a denim jumpsuit, a bow blouse, and a sexy-thin gray Henley tucked into a black pencil skirt. These were what Grede and Torstensson referred to as "chic essentials." "It should be classic," Grede expanded. "It should be wearable. It should have that element of a trend. We try to walk that balance." And one didn't have to try too hard to imagine how good these clothes will look on New York's well-shod streets. Mingling in the crowd wearing Fall and channeling Ali MacGraw were Karlie Kloss, in a belted camel suede trench, and Hilary Rhoda, in a boyish black blazer, louche white blouse, and flared skinny jeans.
