Submitted by on March 18, 2011 – 12:42 pm2 Comments

I asked some members of the DrJays.com team who their picks are for the best brands of 2011. We’re not just talking brands sold on our site—we have a mixture of opinions in here from high fashion to urban. Check out what we have to say about who’s doing it big this year, and also what some of our Facebook fans and Twitter followers think!

Carla Shackleford, DrJays.com Managing Editor

“I completely and totally heart A Detacher. The monochromatic ambiance, linear elegance and understated uniformity leave me craving. My current obsession? Their ‘Didion’ sandals.”

Alana Hewitt, DrJays.com Buyer

LaVie for men. Really new, fresh way of doing nautical. A lot of traditional stripes and colors, but with a twist. The upcoming collection is going to be hot.”

Public School. I’ve been a fan of this brand for a while; lots of black, leather and zippers. My type of Brand.”

Hellz for women, because they’re coming out with some edgy stuff other streetwear brands aren’t thinking of. It’s not always about rhinestones, foil print & large logos. Hellz is perfect for the young spunky professional by fulfilling the void of a collabo between street and high fashion. The line allows you to dress up or down for any occasion. It puts personality into style.”

Rocawear for men. The spring/summer line is full of cleaner, more conservative looks that give customers a good mix of urban and contemporary styles.”

“I love, love, love Sass & Bide—and not just because I’m from Australia! They’ve dressed everyone from Beyoncé to Madonna, staying true to their earthy yet street inspired style. The clothes aren’t super expensive but pricey enough to feel special each time you put something on. The brand’s Fall 2011 ready-to-wear collection features bursts of sunburned orange, fuchsias and more subdued camel tones mixed with wild prints—I can’t wait to pick up some pieces.”

“It’s hard to choose just one, but I remember STPL being a line that caught my eye at a recent trade show. The line has been around for a while but I’m a fan of the direction its going in 2011—a lot of clean contemporary looks with great details, along with some fun streetwear pieces. Although graphic tees can become annoying, I think they do theirs tastefully! I love their fitteds too. A great mixture of looks!”

Mimi Wade says “Madonna‘s brand, Material Girl.”

Brandon Toshihiro Msimanga says “Human Made by Nigo
