Witty UK-based knitwear designer Bella Freud has teamed up with killer Californian denim label, J Brand on the coolest 17-piece collection of denim and sweaters

Cult fashion favourite (Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and Jeanne Damas are fans) Bella Freud already has an enviable list of style achievements from her subversively witty knits to her heaven-scent fragrances and home candles - but of course the creativity can't stop there. Freud has turned her hand to the denim dimension, teaming up with denim-lovers label, J Brand on a 17-piece collection of covetable denim and knitwear.

"J Brand does the best skinny jean on the block, so we created the straight and wide leg which is what I like to wear," Freud says of the collection, which is her first ever foray into denim. The collection combines Freud's '70s it girl aesthetic with J Brand's top notch denim knowledge and along with straight and wide-leg jeans includes must-have pieces like a limited-edition denim jumpsuit which Freud says "...has the slinky glamour favoured by the great beauties of the 1970s: sexy and off-hand," plus A-line denim skirts and clever knits.

Freud invariably has a muse for everything she designs and for her J Brand collab she called upon the style legacy of her late friend, '60s and '70 icon, Anita Pallenberg.
