This weeks review is on the colourful Rainbow Leopard New English Jean by Camilla and Marc. Today we have Sara a size 10-12 pear shape modeling.
Camilla and Marc launched at Australian Fashion Week in 2003 and has since become a hot favourite and international designer brand. It’s always interesting to review a fresh new brand to ilovejeans.com.
The Fit: The fit is more of a skinny trouser or a ski pant, fastened using a single button and hook and eye and a concealed zip. The waist band has loops for a belt and they have a metal branded badge on the back. The flat side pockets and ankle hot pink zips give this style a slim silhouette, perfect for a curvy body shape. Sara is wearing an Australian 26 which is a uk10, sizes start at a Uk6 -12
The Rise: The front rise measures a good10.5 inches, Back Rise: 15 inches which is actually quite high.
The Behind: One of my pet hates are jeans without a back pocket for various reasons but the main one being it extenuates the size of most bottoms. Because of the heavy print the designers are right to of kept the behind to minimal styling.
The Leg Opening: 10 inches making this a skinny jean for sure.
Leg Length: The leg length sits at 28 inches just below the ankle bone to show off the sporty pink ankle zips.
The Fabric: 97% cotton, 3% spandex gives these jeans the stretch needed to maintain the shape. Cold machine or hand wash.
Function: This style is definitely a statement jean and not to be worn by the fainthearted. It’s a hybrid of all the seasons hottest trends, bright colours, leopard print and sport-luxe all mixed into one jean.
Which Body Shape: Sara is a curvy pear with a unique rise measurement of 12 inches ( measurement from crotch to belly button).
As I always say, no two pear shapes are the same and it’s your unique rise measurement that should guide you to the best rise for you. This jean is a good shape for Sara as the front rise is 10.5 inches and the high back rise gives her J Lo bottom a great shape.
This jean is a good shape for the following body shapes Long & Leggy, Hourglass and Curvy Pear. The Apple can sit this one out as the lack of back pocket detail won’t do anything for your flat bottom, although the front will work with your slim legs.
The Round Up Of The Camila and Marc Rainbow Leopard New English Jean
I do like a print it has to be said but i’m not sure if the rainbow leopard print maybe a tad too much. Needless to say if your loving this print you probably have a wardrobe of similar prints to keep it company. The fit is more of a classic skinny trouser than a jean which makes this style a true hybrid.
The price is high at £275 but if you love it go for it as you won’t see this print replicated.
