I’m not really sure why I’m so surprised that there’s another major denim collection launching for spring, because really, it’s pretty much been proven by now that it’s the textile of the season. The newest addition to the bunch is Madewell X Daryl K, and if there was even a small part of you that thought that maybe all-jean-everything wasn’t for you, this collab will change your mind.

The 18-piece limited edition collection includes button-downs, flares, A-line skirts, dresses, and all manner of denim bottoms that’ll make getting dressed for the warmer months as easy as slipping into your favorite jeans. Designer Daryl Kerrigan curated the collection with a downtown, cool-girl vibe in mind, as evidenced by the fact that she selected rock legend Kim Gordon and daughter Coco to model the collab:



Madewell has proved itself time and time again to be the go-to destination for all things denim and leather, so you can feel confident in purchasing pieces from this collab and knowing that they’ll last you a long time. Since this is Madewell, though, the pieces won’t come cheap—prices range from $58 for a t-shirt to $498 for a suede fringe jacket (there’s a canvas bag that’ll only cost you $12, though!). The line arrives just ahead of New York Fashion Week, which starts on Thursday, February 11. 

Before you shop, though, read on to see some of our favorite looks from the collab:

Madewell X Daryl K Denim Shirt ($88) and Suede Snap-Front Skirt ($298)

Surprisingly, this isn’t actually a denim-on-denim look. Rather, it’s denim-on-suede, and the combination works really well. Also, ever since Kendall and Kylie Jenner‘s spring PacSun collection featured a number of button-front skirts, I’ve been obsessed.

Madewell X Daryl K Beverly Lace-Up Dress ($158)

Again, I feel like I’m just turning into a one-woman Kendall and Kylie Jenner fan club, because the cut of this dress isn’t entirely unlike some of the lace-up dresses featured in their new Kendall + Kylie collection. This looks like the perfect cozy dress to throw on when you’re running late in the morning, but still want to look put together.

Madewell X Daryl K Bonnie Dress ($128)

It’s got the look and feel of a classic denim dress, but without the weight and the inevitable cowboy-esque feel.

Madewell X Daryl K Ikat Shirt ($82), Sunny Shoulder Bag ($350), and Duke Cut-Off Boots ($228)

So I’m actually not such a huge fan of this bag. I’d probably replace it one of Madewell’s classic tote bags, but the denim-and-camel boot combo is a classic.
