Recently, the focus in the denim world has been raw or vintage denim. Brands like Current/Elliott shot to popularity as a result of their worn in and faded looks. However, denim designers may now be shifting away from old and toward luxury.
Spanish denim producer, Tavex, has created a fabric, which appears in their Spring collections, featuring a blend of linen, Cupro as well as silk and taffeta. Resulting in a truly luxurious fabric. The firm’s marketing director sees these types of developments as the future of the denim business, “ “We sense there is an evolution away from vintage to more high-end, ready-to-wear-inspired fabrics,” David Bardin said.
Other brands, such as Hugo Boss and D&G have been adapting fabrics made from a cashmere blend. (How luxurious!) But as Jean Ivor, Product Development head at Nudie states, the development serves a purpose greater than just luxury, “We’re not into [noble ﬁbers for the sake of it]…it’s more about ﬁnding ﬁbers that will wear well, such as cashmere which ages really beautifully.”
Other brands, such as Notify and Naked and Famous have also been experimenting with cashmere blends, noting the blend’s comfort and memory retention as selling points. The selling prices, however, also are reflecting this new-found luxury, some pairs starting as high as $390.

Filming scenes for her latest reality show, Paris Hilton does some shopping with a few celebrities, including her sister, Nicky. Paris’s new show is going to air on the Oxygen network. I’m not sure what her reality show will be about, she’s already had 2! What do you think, will you watch her new show?
Paris is the master at creating matching outfits. For filming, she was dressed head to toe in blue, including a blue pair of skinnies. Her jeans are by Black Orchid. You can buy Black Orchid jeans at Singer22.com.
Jennifer Love Hewitt was seen on the set of her latest film, The Lost Valentine, in LA. Jennifer’s tv series, Ghost Whisperer, was canceled last year but it looks as though Jennifer has been staying busy with film work! I wonder if this outfit is for the film or one Jennifer chose?
Personally, I love switching out my skinny jeans for a pair of wide-leg jeans. Jennifer has been seen in a couple of different styles of wide legs in the past. However, I don’t like this pair from MiH on her. One of the things I think about this style is they can be so flattering, but Jennifer’s are too small! There’s nothing wrong with sizing up! You can buy MiH jeans here.
Rachel Bilson runs some errands at a local CVS pharmacy. She did some errands before heading back to her car. Rachel seems to be pretty busy these days, after wrapping filming on the film BFF & Baby, writing her style column for InStyle and working on a new TV series with OC Director, Josh Schwartz.
Rachel looked casual in an army green tee shirt, jeggings and a pair of camel wedges. She’s wearing Paige Premium’s Vedugo leggings in Vinyl. Rachel really loves her Paige Premium jeans! I think they always look great on her. You can buy Rachel’s leggings at PaigeUSA.com for $158.00.
