    Emily Current and Meritt Elliott—the stylist duo behind such fashionable ladies as Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, and Mandy Moore, and the original creators of Current/Elliott—know good jeans when they see them, and the proof is in their new book, A Denim Story: Inspirations from Bellbottoms to Boyfriends. Available now, the tome offers a visual narrative of the history of blue jeans, as seen on fashion icons past (Jane Birkin and Patti Smith) and present (Dree Hemingway and Jessica Hart), with images by photographer Hilary Walsh.

    Excerpt from the Out in the Trailer Chapter

    The idea of life in a trailer recalls a feeling of adventure and resourcefulness. Much like our childhood favorite, the Boxcar Children novels, we envision a life of fantasy in a forest, where dressing up and daydreaming feel indulgently youthful and entirely magical. We enjoy the challenge of making the best of something with limited resources—from finding treasures in thrift stores to mending a torn knee with a found needle and thread.

    Excerpt from the Boyfriend Chapter

    In our own personal denim story, the notion of a boyfriend jean has been quite pivotal. We borrowed and stole our boyfriends’ and dads’ jeans—pulling them low on our hips and rolling them at the ankle to become our own. This baggy favorite has weaved its way through history and into our own lives. We love that it feels and looks easy, and is comfortable and feminine in the most endearingly boyish way.
