The American model and fashion star has been working with Frame Denim on a new range of jeans designed for extra tall girls. 

Set to launch in June, the Forever Karlie collection is set to help tall girls who are tired of hasslesome short jeans. 

"I'm freakishly tall, so finding pants that fit is something I've struggled with my whole life," said Kloss to Vogue. "My secret to pulling off too-short jeans has always been to pair them with boots and I really rocked the flood-pant trend for as long as I could! It wasn't until I started modelling at fifteen that I even realized what well-fitting clothes felt like."

Founded last year by Swedish entrepreneurs Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson, Frame Demin is part of the Saturday Group, the digital agency that has created the distinctive online presences for clients including Mr Porter and Calvin Klein. Manufactured in California, the jeans feature extra-high waist-bands, as well as 40-inch inseams. 

This isn't the model's first collaboration. Twenty-year-old Karlie has previously worked with David Chang's Momofuku Milk Bar to create her almond oat and dark chocolate treats called Karlie's Kookies, sold to benefit hungry children via FEED Projects. 

Frame jeans are stocked around the world in boutiques including Barneys New York and London's Liberty, and are also available online at Net-à-Porter and Shopbop.
