[BLANKNYC] designers Emmy Lauridsen and Leigh Brown have taken premium denim jeans into new territory, and the results are as edgy — yet affordable — as they come. From razor-slim “spray on” skinny jeans to wide-leg and flared styles, mid-rise jeans to high-waist cut-off shorts, [BLANKNYC]’s denim is treated with destroyed washes and embellishments such as lengthy leg zippers, spandex, and pyramid studs. Since [BLANKNYC] released its first runaway hit, the Skinnie Classique jean, in 2007, the label has added tops, jackets, skirts, and dresses that put a contemporary spin on classic shapes. With creative style names — the Sexting vest, the Chain Gang jacket — this label is clearly having fun with fashion, and so are its fans.
