We’ve barely had time to wrap our heads around Bella Hadid’s ultra cool new clothing line, Reese Witherspoon’s super cute curated Birchbox, and Uniqlo’s latest ode to Minnie Mouse, but already, we’re obsessing over another new killer collaboration that we cannot WAIT to get our hands on.
Iconic denim brand Wrangler is celebrating its 70th birthday this year (it was established in 1947!) and to celebrate, the blue jean gurus are teaming up with beloved retro retailer ModCloth for a brand new capsule collection. “We put our own twists and tweaks on some of our favorite vintage samples from across time,” ModCloth gushed over on its blog, where they also unveiled seven stylish pieces straight from retro heaven.
Available in sizes 0 through 24W and XS to 4X, the line features classic ’70s-inspired staples with a modern twist, including a fab trucker jacket, pencil skirt, ringer tee, and three different styles of denim: flare, wide leg, and straight leg jeans (no skinnies here — they’re bad for your back, anyway!). But these aren’t your mom’s jeans. Far from it!
As ModCloth fashion director Lizz Wasserman told Refinery29, “We definitely did a lot of work to tweak and bring these pants into today. For example, we have a really great fit team, and there was no way we could take a vintage heavy cotton with no stretch.” For the new collab, Modcloth updated the denim to be “really soft, but still very strong denim with a little bit of stretch.”
Sharing the inspiration behind some of the effortlessly cool staples, the ModCloth team revealed that “the Wrangler Dependable Denim Jacket ($80) was inspired by an original Wrangler trucker jacket from the ’40s; the Wrangler Straight-Leg Sass Jeans ($90) and Wrangler Flared Finesse Jeans ($90) carry ’60s and ’70s flair; and ’80s-inspired style abounds with the Wrangler Dependable Denim Pencil Skirt ($70) and Wrangler Radiant Ringer T-Shirt ($35).”
It’s official: We want everything. *Adds all to cart*
