DenimBlog: Tell us, what is Paige’s perfect Paige Premium jean?
Paige: That all depends on your body type and your lifestyle! We have a perfect fit for almost any woman, so it’s a matter of finding the perfect style for your needs. But I guarantee there is a perfect fit for every body!
DenimBlog: For those who haven’t read the book, can anyone wear skinny jeans?
Paige: Just about anyone can wear skinny jeans when paired with the right tops and accessories. For a girl with more curves, skinnies look great paired with a longer tunic that hits just below the widest part of the thigh and a pair of heels. It’s a very slimming look! If you have an extra narrow physique, pair your skinnies with a camisole and a blazer to add some shape and a pair of cute ballet flats.
DenimBlog: What do you see as the next big trend in denim?
Paige: What you will see a lot of right now are retro shapes like ultra-high waists and super belled legs.
DenimBlog: Are skinny jeans and wide legs going to stick around for awhile?
Paige: Because both styles can be super flattering, I think they haven’t seen their final days just yet. But we will probably see some new takes on the shapes like a more cropped skinny and high waist wide leg.
DenimBlog: Tell us about your history working as a Fit model. What did you learn from that experience?
Paige: I went into fit modeling because the lifestyle surrounding runway and print modeling was very unhealthy for me. I battled anorexia and found that fit modeling, which required me to stay a healthy size 6, helped me pull myself out of those destructive habits. I also found that being involved in the design process with the labels I worked for was far more fulfilling for me. I became a fit expert and after years of consulting for the top denim brands, I decided that I should take what I had learned and what I was doing for these other designers and apply it to my own line.
DenimBlog: Our readers love seeing photos of celebrities in denim, like when we posted about Britney Spears going for a shopping spree in your boutique. What celebs have you worked with recently and fit in a pair of Paige’s?
Paige: Most recently, Mena Suvari, Minka Kelly and Whitney Port. We do have a fun regulars though! Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Rachel Bilson, Eva Longoria and Sophia Bush regularly request our new styles.
DenimBlog: What is the most popular styles of Paige jeans right now?
Paige: The most popular new style is probably our Roxbury Crop. It’s a great jean because its narrow cropped leg is a staple for any summer look and it will take you into Fall because it tucks perfectly into boots! And the Laurel Canyon, which is my basic low-rise boot cut is still my #1 style since day one of the brand. It’s the classic everyday jean that looks good on just about anybody.
DenimBlog: Do you ever see Paige branching out into shoes and bags, as some of the other denim companies have done such as True Religion and 7 for All Mankind? Why or why not?
Paige: I would love to eventually design other products that have the Paige sensibility, but right now we are concentrating on our denim and the launch of my new better line called Paige Black Label.
DenimBlog: Tell us about the Paige Black Label brand we’ve been hearing rumors about! And when will it be available?
Paige: Paige Black Label consists of mostly classic and higher fashion pieces for the woman who embraces her power and sensuality. The line boasts everything from a classic wool trouser to eyelet leather bolero jackets and a-symmetrical dresses. Vests, high-waisted skirts and skinny slacks will also grace the line for Fall. The line will be available in stores by the beginning of August.
DenimBlog: Can’t wait to see it! Thanks so much for the interview Paige!
