Freja Beha Erichsen Is the Latest Model-Turned-Designer

Few models have nailed down that rock n' roll, "model-off-duty" look quite like Freja Beha Erichsen. She always seems to have the perfect black leather moto jacket, the best black skinny jeans, the most amazing--well, everything. So it makes sense that Erichsen, who seems to have been spending quite a bit of time off duty lately, is the latest model with a capsule collection.

So it makes sense that Erichsen, who seems to have been spending quite a bit of time off duty lately, is the latest model with a capsule collection. Mother co-founders Lela Becker and Tim Kaeding have tapped the Danish model for the collaboration, which Style.com has the scoop on. The collection, which hits Nordstrom next month, includes the Muse skinny jeans in--what else?--black and faux leather, and a cool chambray shirt.

They all seem like clothes Erichsen would actually wear--and that's intentional. "I felt like doing something I wear all the time was much more in my power, because, clearly, I am not a designer," she told Style with an amazing sense of self-awarness. She says she wears the jeans she helped design all the time now, which means for between $145 and $300 you too can dress like a model off duty. (Sorry, we can't help you nail that perfect chop--Erichsen has said she does it herself.)

And here's the best part: 10 percent of the proceeds will go to Erichsen's fave humanitarian organization, Doctors Without Borders.

The only downside? The one-time favorite of Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, who we've been missing a lot the past few seasons, says she won't be hitting the runways this upcoming fashion week, either. "It just felt natural, at a point, not to do as many shows," she told Style.com of the decision to sit out this fall's collections. We wonder if she, like fellow model-cum-denim designer Karlie Kloss, has also become "too famous."

But there's still hope: "I wouldn't say I would never do a show again, though.”
