Cheap jeans, Alex Wang shades, and other Vegas discoveries.
This week in Vegas marks Project, the annual trade show where denim labels, sneaker companies, and street wear brands arrive to hype their latest and greatest. We’ve landed on the ground, scouted the Project booths, and picked our favorite things from the future – more specifically, spring 2010, when this stuff actually goes on sale.

Mill Iron Jeans
Chip and Pepper debut a little sister line for their fans, featuring pastel washes, butt-popping fits, and a much slimmer price tag – each pair goes for about $60.
Get them: January 2010 in stores nationwide.
Linda Farrow for Alexander Wang
The sunglass queen, who’s made iconic shades for Luella Bartley and Giles Deacon, strikes again, this time with prototypes for a new line for Alexander Wang. The sunglasses - which haven't even gone to the factory yet! - include zipper hardware, catlike shapes, and bronzed resin frames.
See them: Maybe September 15 on Alex Wang’s catwalk?! Stay tuned.
55 DSL: The Birthday Party
What happens when 55 DSL turns 15 years old? They act like a 15-year-old – by “trashing” Diesel stores around the country with graffiti, stickers, and tons of their attitude-steeped T-shirts.
Cheer them: this October.
The Furies by Ksubi
Our favorite Aussie denim launches a knitwear line named after the three mythic mistresses of Hell. It’s appropriately spooky, but didn’t you know – horror is so hot right now.
Wear them: February 2010.
Reebok Pump’s 20th Anniversary Collection
The air up there has never been cooler than this November, when Reebok pairs with 20 artists to release 20 limited-edition Pump sneakers. There are no images yet, but we promise it’ll be big.
Camp out for them: November 2009.
