#DenimHuntinJapan Shopping the Sickest Denim Blouses and Accessories in Okinawa

I recently came home after nearly a month in Okinawa Japan for some much needed vacation time. I went on the urging of a friend and boy am I glad I listened. What an amazing place! This not so small island is halfway between Taiwan and mainland Japan with a culture that is an amalgam of its autonomous roots to it's acquisition by the Japanese and finally it's invasion by the allies during WWII. It truly is a harmonizing of cultures. I managed to post a few pictures to Instagram. Only a few though. It was a vacation after all and documenting it wasn't my biggest priority. I know that sounds backwards, but sometimes we can get so caught up in the perfect Instagram shot and forget to enjoy the beauty of our surroundings with our own two eyes -but I digress. No matter how hard I try, I can never truly tear myself away from work. Especially since work is so tied into shopping. And boy did I shop! From shopping malls to boutiques to thrift stores denim abounds in Okinawa and the best part is, it's not just in your basic jean.

From Work to Gym in Jeans? Yes, Please! ISKO Launches "ISKO ARQUAS" Collection and It Is Everything You Hoped It Would Be!



A video posted by Shanna McKinnon (@denimhuntdotcom) on



It's been years, maybe a decade even, since the idea of a jean that can double as athleticwear began to surface. The two categories have somewhat parallel roots. Jeans started as workwear and over the years have become a comfort staple that can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion. Athleticwear, specifically yoga pants, started as sportswear and over the years has also come to be a comfort staple that is often worn outside of it's original purpose. Logic dictates that these two very different, but lateral moving categories should meet. Logic also dictates that because they cater to a similar market and their purposes often overlap (how often have you had to choose between your jeans or yoga pants just to run a quick errand) that combining the two should be rather simple.

Unfortunately, it hasn't been. For most people the thought of wearing denim as a swimsuit or a sweatpant is intriguing, but a bit bizarre. Adding to our skepticism is the fact that most attempts to combine the two have been more of a novelty than an actual real attempt to create a new category. That's excluding the very real efforts of a few intrepid brands like Diesel and Guess. Behind those efforts are denim mill ISKO who's technology has enabled these brands to create denim that can compete in the rapidly growing athleisure category. The success of Diesel's Jogg Jean is a direct result of ISKO technology and many brands have now followed suit with their own versions creating a whole new category of jean called joggers. It only seems fitting now that the company behind the tech should expand their efforts. And they have in the biggest way possible.

Mavi's Super Skinny Jean Gets an Update

Starred Photos306

Mavi has some interesting offers for spring. A good number of flare legs, a jacket or two and a pair of culottes add variety to a surprisingly large amount of skinny jeans. At first glance I wasn't sure if there was anything new to see. To be fair, newness can be overrated at times and there's something to be said for a good, time-tested, reliable style. That is sort of the case here except the super skinny jean does get a bit of an update with capri-lengths, cuffs and boyfriend-style distressing.

Above are my top picks for the lookbook. Scroll down and see if you can find some top picks of your own.

Claudia Li Spring is Clean and Chaotic!

Starred Photos305

Clean and chaotic. Those are the words I would use to describe the unruly fringe details contained within the sculpted shapes of Claudia Li's spring collection. It makes for an interesting and surprisingly wearable contrast. The four items above are closet-friendly favorites of mine. The palazzo pants and wrap skirt especially are great statement makers when combined with crisp white shirts and simple flats
