The public is no stranger to Mirander Kerr on the walkway; slender, confident, and angelic, she has become a fashion icon and the face of many brands such as Victoria’s Secret, Prada and Balenciaga. Kerr has also dabbled with designing her own lines, notably in collaboration with Swarovski back in 2015, as well as the launch of her own original skin care product line, KORA Organics. She is yet again unleashing her creative side with a new fashion project: the Miranda + Mother capsule denim collection.
US label Mother Denim worked closely with Kerr to release a 12-piece set of various denim essentials, including jeans, shorts, and styles of jackets. Some notable items include a denim jumpsuit (seen in the featured image), high-waisted jeans, and a 90’s inspired flare skirt. Coupled with the denim clothing are accessory pieces such as crop T-shirts with feel good slogans like “Attitude of Gratitude.” There is a nostalgic, “washed-out, worn in” concept that ties many of the pieces together, and transports you back to a late 1900’s era of carefree casualness. Miranda herself played a large role in the conceptualization and planning stages, by providing her own suggestions for moodboards, colour palettes, and proportions. As someone who modeled often for denim collections in the past, she finally had the chance to bring her own ideas to life.
“When someone loves their jeans so much, they feel like a second skin in a way. There are cheeky little handwritten notes on the back of these jeans that say “hands off, these are mine.” I wanted to include those to give the pieces that personal touch. I want women to feel uplifted when they wear these pieces.” – Miranda Kerr
A portion of all proceeds will go to the Royal Women’s Hospital Foundation, an Australian charity that provides countless mothers and their infants with much-needed postnatal care. As a mother herself, the cause is one close to Kerr’s heart, and she is thrilled to launch a collection that will give back to the community. The pieces are available for sale on the Mother Denim website.
