Tim Kaeding, former creative director/designer for 7 for All Mankind, and Lela Tillem, former president of sales and marketing at Citizens for Humanity have teamed up to launch the mother of all denim lines: Mother. The inspiration for the line was certainly retro, as Tim Kaeding stated, everything from “60s cinema to Max’s Kansas City,” inspired the line’s first collection.
The collection features trendy styles, from flares, to skinnies and denim leggings. Not only has incredible detail been considered with fit, but also with fabric selection. The fabric is soft and luxurious but also features stretch, for a snug and flattering look. Kaeding also explained, “We are taking our expertise in fit and finish and adding a key third element that involves developing new denims that feel like cashmere.” The washes are also unique, including dyed black and white jeans as well as super-saturated blues. The collection will also feature other fabrics such as twills.
Kaeding explains the mission behind the line, was to “Break the barriers of what people have come to expect of average mainstream denim companies. Aside from the obvious luxurious nature of the denims, we really went after a more saturated wash palette.”
The line will be available for purchase in stores, starting January 30th. Prices begin at $100 and go up to $242. You can preview the look book below:
Taking a post-holiday stroll with her parents, LeAnn Rimes looked to be in great spirits. She too to Twitter about spending her holiday with both her and her new boyfriend, Eddie Cibrian’s parents. She tweeted about her enjoyable holidays, “Today, yesterday, the day before that…all have been truly unforgettable. Greek food and True Grit w/ both sets of parents today. It’s been nice getting tons of family time in.” The couple is heading to Cabo to ring in the New Year!
In my opinion, LeAnn has been looking really thin these days. But she showed off her body in a pair of J Brand jeans, which she tucked into boots and paired with a sweater. You can see the different ways that LeAnn has styled these jeans before here. You can purchase J Brand Jeans at their website here.
Heidi Klum, Seal and their children have to be one of my favorite celebrity families. They always look so happy and like they’re having a lot of fun. The past weekend was no exception. The family headed to a local park to get some family time and the kids were seen taking rides on a Segway. I wonder if it was a Christmas gift?
Heidi looked casual in a pair of high top sneakers, a jacket and G-Star jeans. Last time she wore these jeans to the airport, both for her departure and arrival at LAX nearly the exact same way (you can see photos here).
Back in April, Rock and Republic filed for Chapter 11 for bankruptcy protection and it was unsure if the brand was going to survive. All of that may have changed over the past week when, VF Corporation, the company that owns denim giants such as 7 For All Mankind and Wrangler jeans, purchased the Rock and Republic’s trademark rights.
While this news certainly is good for fans of Rock and Republic, it doesn’t mean the company is out of the woods yet. VF Corporation has only purchased the trademark and intellectual property of the brand. this means that the company name is owned by VF but not the actual stores and business themselves. The purchase by VF Corporation is supposed to be finalized in the spring, and the company plans to continue to fulfill orders.
