AG has shot a short film of the process of making a pair of jeans. This isn’t a documentary. It was shot by Independent Spirit Nominee Lee Toland Krieger. It shows two actors having a quick tryst and later the male actor getting inspired by his counterpart.
He envisions a pair of the 22 Years Destroyed for her and later during sketching he finds himself picking out the cotton and later again appearing in the factory. As the film goes on, you see him, along with others, choosing the fabric, creating his own detail and washing them, then finally finishing them off. He does all this in his own pair of the AG Matchbox in 2 Years Dark. As he holds on to the finishing pair he sees his muse in them and is completed. They then later drive off. The film also features an original remix of The Virgins’ One Week of Danger remixed by DJ Gigamesh. You can see the film above.
Lorna’s note – The short film does also contain some underwear scenes so if you are at work, click with caution.
Chloe is one brand that never shies away from showing at least one denim piece each season and this season was no exception. Hannah MacGibbon sent two looks down with denim. One, a skirt with some sun-faded panels and the other a pair of patchwork gauchos. I don’t know what to think about the gauchos on Kasia Struss (shown above). They just make me think of a milkmaid when I see them.
The two denim pieces weren’t the only thing making a statement in Chloe this season, python was also a big one. She sent pieces from shirts, skirts, and pants covered in the reptile skin down the runway. Overall, MacGibbon kept the soul of the fashion house by showing trendy chic looks at its simplicity. Check out some of the looks below.
Gerard Butler was spotted chatting on the phone when he was caught by the paparazzi in Hollywood, California. He wore one of the new J Brand Cargos. He chose the Trooper Cargos in Vintage Westpoint. Cargos never really went out for the men, but I think we are going to see more of the male celebrities wearing them.
Other brands such as AG (on Drake) and Uniqlo (Orlando Bloom ads) have also come out with their own styles for the men. Are any of you male readers going to test out the new slimmer cargos that they are starting to offer now for us? Which ones will you guys try out? You can click here to purchase these Trooper Cargos at Barneys for $235.
Ahh…such an amazing pair of light-washed jeans. I am still in aww about how amazing these jeans are. The wash is just one of my favorites along with the tear at the knee. I just think they are a beyond perfect spring/summer skinny pair.
Nicole Richie was spotted out and about in Paris, France again. This time she opted for some color in her life by pairing her JET Hippie Faded jeans with a red leather jacket. I love red leather jackets. They are just the best alternative to the usual black motorcycle jacket. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Singer22 for $194.
