US designer denim label J Brand has signed an exclusive deal with UK fashion retailer Topshop to launch a limited-edition capsule collection.

The new line, J Brand for Topshop, will debut in Topshop's Oxford Circus flagship store at the end of November and be available through January 2009.

"We see this collaboration with Topshop as a great opportunity to be part of a groundbreaking company, and create a special product for them that is in keeping with our aesthetic, yet presented in a new way," said Susie Crippen, J Brand co-founder and creative director.

J Brand for Topshop will consist of three low-rise styles named for the New York boroughs and neighbourhoods that exemplify the styles of the women who wear them.

The Brooklyn style is the new denim staple: a 12-inch pencil leg; the Nolita is a classic cigarette leg with a 14-inch leg opening; and the Manhattan is a slim fit 22-inch bell bottom.

These styles will be available in washes that range from dark and clean to vintage-inspired distressed washes. In keeping with the New York theme, the washes are: Empire, Skyline, Liberty and Bowery.

The retail price point for this limited collection is GBP89 (US$165).

Mary Homer, managing director of Topshop, said: "Topshop has established a reputation for producing its own new, leading-edge jeans and we're proud to build on this by working with the original cult jeans brand - J Brand."
