Kingpins Show Presents: Trend

#HipNJ had the pleasure of attending Kingpins exclusive fashion presentation in NYC, Denim Trends, for their S/S 2019 season! The event featured an installation of garments using in-season fabrics, and we were nothing short of impressed at all the gorgeous looks we could find!


A view of the simultaneously gorgeous & edgy setup.

Boutique Bazaar: The spotlight on the Middle East that drove last season’s fascination with re-worked Arabic typefaces further evolves this season to drive a more sophisticated, sun-bleached desert-inspired summer story. Time-worn textiles marry with ultra-faded indigos, cementing this as the season’s true vintage denim theme. Explore authentic artisanal crafts and techniques including border prints, Islamic geometric, hand-loomed blanket stripes & tufted surfaces.”

Shirt: Aruind, Pants: Cazik

Summer Goth: The Noughties is the new era everyone is drawing inspiration from, due to the recent obsession with the near-nostalgia. Maligned subcultures of the decade collide: emo-heroes such as Marilyn Manson & trash-fashion icons Paris Hilton and Ed Hardy mix with Y2K race references to create a new susubversive anti-cool look. Tap into musical genres of the era, including nu-metal, goth and grunge to influence both styling, detail and surface. Punched and deconstructed denim is paired with bootlegged metal typefaces and patches, S&M gothic detailing and grunge-inspired destroyed plaids.”

Our favorite presentation we came upon (among the many!) was by Amy Leverton of Denim Dudes.

Denim Dads: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more normal…Drawing inspiration from the mundane, this story evolves from the anti-fashion movement epitomized by norm core & athleisure. Taking elements of last season’s youth-driven sports-casual styling & mixing it with sensible apparel, Denim Dads encompasses a look that references suburban middle-aged dad style. This is a story all about wardrobe essentials: the regular 5-pocket jeans, the practical cagoule, the ugly sneaker, the blazer, and the basic tee.”

We definitely recommend perusing Kingpins’ website – you might find some inspiration!

Don’t Miss Cyber Monday! HipNJ Has Got the Scoop on Sales

So Thanksgiving is over and you missed Black Friday? Fret not, because Cyber Monday is upon us! Shop amazing deals from the comfort of your home (or office, we don’t judge) while you chow down on leftovers. Here’s a list of some great Cyber Monday deals going on!

  1. GameStop
    Video games can be super pricy, but GameStop is the place that keeps on giving with some massive sales on games, consoles, and more! Check them out!
  2. Costco
    While you have to be a member to shop at Costco, their holiday sales might be the thing that draws you there! They’re having tons of sales on electronics, home appliances, and more
  3. Ann Taylor
    50% your entire purchase? Free shipping?? We see you, Ann Taylor…
  4. H&M
    This place will be having sales up to 30% off– that’s a pretty big difference for a store that’s already super affordable!
  5. Old Navy
    They have thousands of styles $10 and under AND they’ll take 50% off your entire purchase? I’m about to throw all my money at Old Navy this holiday season.
  6. Hello Fresh
    Thanksgiving may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try some new healthy recipes at home! Hello Fresh will be having some discounts this Cyber Monday, so be sure to snag a box or two for the nutrition (and the ‘gram…these meals look gorgeous, people!)
  7. Intrepid Travel
    While material possessions are lovely, experiences also matter! I know this winter chill has got us feeling some nostalgia for warmer weather, so while you’re fantasizing about your next vacation, why not book it 15% off? Intrepid is having a great deal for so many beautiful locations, it’s impossible to pass up!

We at HipNJ hope your Thanksgiving was bountiful, your Black Friday safe, and that your Cyber Monday will be cheap!
