Madewell x Where I Was From: Meet the Duo Behind Our Latest Collab

Few things rival the feeling of slipping on a pair of jeans that fit perfectly…but if we had to come up with one, it’d be the feeling of stumbling upon an amazing vintage piece. One of our favorite sources for such pieces is Where I Was From, an expertly sourced vintage collection from Brooklyn-based friends and co-founders, Stacy Daily and Claire Lampert. We had a meeting to talk vintage denim with Stacy and Claire early last year, which led to the realization that we had to collaborate on an entire line—which is shoppable today. Here’s how it came together and how these two creative, vintage savants turned a moonlighting side-hustle into a dream full-time gig.

Tees Tête-à-Tête: 3 Duos Take Our “How Well Do You Know Each Other” Challenge

We went behind the scenes at our denim studio—where the same family has been making jeans since 1975—to see the magic happen. Spoiler alert: They really know what they’re doing.

JEANS AS BFFS: A FASHION WRITER ON HER DENIM LOVE AFFAIR

161115_mwsm_bts_296_insta

We first met Elle writer Leah Melby Clinton when she turned us into the living embodiment of the blushing emoji with her piece about our black skinny jeans. Leah’s a true-blue denim devotee (one of us, in other words), so as we got to work on our latest version of our Denim Report (in stores and right here), we wanted to get her take on jeans and why they have such a hold on our collective hearts. We won’t say much more other than…yeah, she gets it.
