Finding a pair of jeans may not be the easiest task for 6-foot-1 supermodel Karlie Kloss, but her new collaboration may have solved the tall denim debacle. The Victoria’s Secret angel teamed up with Frame Demin to create two styles for the leggiest of consumers. While most brands tap out at 34—36 inch inseams for taller clients, the Kloss-Frame capsule boasts 40-inch inseams. That’s plenty of room to get a leg up on the competition. [Vogue UK]

Georgia May Jagger is taking her real-life romance with Josh McLellan and immortalizing it for Sisley’s Fall 2013 campaign.

It’s been seven months since execs at True Religion put the premium denim line up for sale. $835 million later, TowerBrook Capital Partners has officially taken over the SoCal brand.

While we’ve gotten used to seeing Courtney Love and Daft Punk front campaigns for Saint Laurent Paris, the Hedi Slimane-helmed brand is stepping away from its music project for a good ol’ fashioned ad.

The publishing company behind Prevention and Women’s Health magazines is stepping into the e-commerce space. Rodale Publishing is opening a virtual specialty store that will sell goods from 100 vendors including Eileen Fisher, Melissa Joy Manning, and Waiting for the Sun. “We’re in the business of providing people with solutions, and traditionally those solutions have been the written word, digital or video — but solutions can often be products,” said company CEO Maria Rodale. When Rodales.com goes live on May 20, Rodale will become the first publisher to own all inventory for an in-house retail model. [WWD]

Parlez-vous Français? At Macy’s, the answer is oui, oui! The retailer is tapping into Parisian influences for the newest addition to its in-house clothing collection with Maison Jules. “We have been looking at the influence of the invasion of all these French brands that are coming and making an important appearance in the States, whether it’s Sandro, Maje, Zadig & Voltaire or Comptoir des Cotonniers,” said  senior vice president of marketing Nancy Slavin. “And I think our young contemporary girl is very, very aware of these brands, so we’re building a collection that really sort of emulates what this classically French chic ingenue has in her wardrobe, and we’re bringing it to Macy’s.” Maison Jules will be available under the Impulse imprint in August.
