I am a big fan of Nili Lotan’s relaxed basics and think the fit of her pants is superb. But I really wasn’t interested in her denim when it launched recently, because I thought what could she possibly do that hasn’t done before. Then I went into her Tribeca boutique over the weekend to try on a shirt I had my eye on (a no go in the end) and ended up leaving with a pair of her Tel Aviv jeans. The crop length is perfect for spring and I love the trouser-like details (the side slit pockets, and back flap pockets). Because they stretch and run a little big, I bought mine fitted, which meant going two sizes down. I can’t wait to for the New York snow/slush fest to end so I can wear them.
