Last year when I visited the Plussize Fashion Fair in Amsterdam I stumbled upon this new label Blue Frog. It immediately caught my eye because of the simpleness of their stand (the blue frog of their logo winking at me might have something to do with it as well 😉 ). Jeans and leather jackets, and that’s all they are doing. But if you do just that you can do it good and make the perfect jeans and the perfect leather jackets of the softest leather. Just do one thing and do it good is my opinion. You can understand how excited I was when the jackets finally arrived in store. It was even better than I remembered…
You can understand how happy I was to have the honor to review the leather biker. As said, the leather is so soft (it’s a premium quality lamb leather) so it feels great to wear, almost as a second skin. The details are very nice, the stitching on the sleeve is graphical (and you know how much I like graphics). The lining of the jacket is done in a jersey fabric (with the frog on it, can’t miss that one 😉 ) and that’s nice because it doesn’t sweat. You know what I mean with all those PU jackets: they make you sweat like a mad man and the lining even more! But most of all: the hardware on this biker, it’s not silver like most jackets, no it has an old coppery color. LOVE! The jackets is available from a size 42- to a size 52 (EU) but it runs a bit small. I’m wearing the size 52 but I like it tight fitted. If you prefer a looser fit and want to wear a sweater underneath you have to size up at least 1 size.
You know me and my dresses so I can wear this with almost every dress I have, It gives it those flowery and feminine dresses a little rough edge which I like a lot! For this post I had this Zizzi dress in mind. Great match don’t you think? The dress is made from a mesh fabric and has black jersey dress underneath. Maybe I will change that sometime for a nice slip dress with some lace details, I think that might work beautifully. But back to Blue Frog. The jeans are in store right now as well. I’m curious about the fit of them, if you tried them on or bought one let me know!
I did a little interview with Eric de Groot and Yvette Smit, founders of Blue Frog, so you would get to know the label a little bit.
When did you have the idea to start Blue Frog and why?
“There was a gap in the market for nice, luxurious, sexy, classy and cool looking high-end jeans in plussize. Together with Yvette we made this idea reality. Blue Frog is available from size 42 to size 54 (EU).”
Jeans and leather are a perfect match, they enhance each other to build a look that is classy, sexy, tough
Why jeans and leather?
“Because jeans and leather are a perfect match, they enhance each other to build a look that is classy, sexy and toughness. We wanted it to be from a high quality with a perfect fit. We have 3 different fits in jeans: regular, skinny and slim fit and in different washings, we guarantee that we have a jeans for every woman.”
What’s more in store?
For next spring we have extended the collection with a short jeansjacket (with or without a peacock application), a jeans blouse and a button through jeans dress (both with fringes at the bottom). We also have a trenchcoat in a luxurious soft suede goat leather.
In the future (AW18) we hope to extend to more countries. We are always full of new ideas, we are working on it as we speak, so keep on following us en let us surprise you!”
I’m certainly curious about all those ideas! If you like to keep a close eye on Blue Frog you can follow them on Instagram: bluefrogamsterdam and on Facebook: bluefrogjeans. And if you want to feel and experience the jacket or try on the jeans you can contact Blue Frog to see if there is a store close to you that sells the jeans or the jackets: firstname.lastname@example.org. The jacket I’m wearing is from Maxim’s in Best.
Hope you liked it and let me know what you think of it!
