‘I go through phases and stages based on how I feel in my own creative space,’ Simpson recently told People, adding, ‘Right now in my career I am inspired by TV and film and want to bring retro glam to our all American denim staple styles. Fashion is experimenting and channeling different parts of ourselves and our lives through what we wear and this campaign allowed me to give it life.’ 

The fashion designer went on to describe the new latest launch a mix of ‘classically inspired pieces to mix and match or wear head to toe.’
