Out promoting Reebox Easy Tone in Paris, France, Helena Christensen was snapped wearing a pair of Genetic Denim jeans. She’s wearing Genetic’s James jean in Onyx. These are great because they’re slightly shorter and cropped, allowing for her shoes to be shown off!
Not only has Helena been busy with promotional duties but she also has been doing a lot of work for the environment. She recently spent 3 days in a remote Nepali Village. She said “I … met several women who told me their personal stories, shared with me the fear they have over the way they live their lives now constantly waiting for flooding and not knowing how to react when it happens.” You can buy Helena’s jeans at Revolveclothing.com for $90.00.
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren took their daughter, Honor to the playground for some playtime as you saw in the post just before this one. The two recently were seen at the CNN Heroes Event. The event was to honor everyday heroes, but the 2010 Hero Award was presented to Anuradha Koirala, who has helped save over 10,000 people from Human Trafficking.
It seems like Jessica has an endless supply of jeans and cargos. She’s been seen out in a lot of different brand’s cargo pants. For their day at the park, Jessica opted for a dark gray pair, which she wore with an oversized sweater and shades. Does anyone know who makes this pair? I like how they have a skinny fit but are a bit looser than some other styles.
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.
