I went to go see the new Spring/Summer 2013 collection for Nudie at their Showroom on Melrose. Right when I walked in it felt so inviting. The first thing that happened when I walked through the door was a kind greeting by Ruari. He has to be one of, if not, the nicest people that I have ever met.
I have to say that I was really surprised at what I saw in the new collection. The main surprise was that they had color. I never would have expected this from a brand that specializes in raw and selvedge denim. Along with the colors, they also had washes that are the heart of the brand, like raw and worn in washes.
It wasn’t just jeans this season either. Everyone needs to freshen up their wardrobe every now and then. This season they introduced their slim khakis in muted shades and a few non-denim pieces such as shirts, jackets (suede and parka were my favorites), and sweaters. It didn’t just end with the clothes, they also had a few accessories that were pretty amazing. There were beanies and bags (duffle and backpack) that Nudie fans would definitely love.
Another thing that I find really cool about the showroom is that they also have a repair station on site. So if you wore your raw jeans out a bit too far, you have a specialist close by (if you are in LA of course) to patch them for you. You can see photos from my day with Nudie below.

Alessandra Ambrosio was spotted getting some coffee in Los Angeles, California. She wore a J Brand 403 Denim Jacket in Coated Bowie. I have been waiting to see this jacket on someone. I always thought the coated sleeves were amazing because when they are cuffed up, they add more interest with the denim lining.
What I have noticed about the three Victoria Secret Models that we constantly get sightings of is how different their styles are. I see Alessandra as more “Rugged Boho,” while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is more “Glam Boho,” and Miranda Kerr is more “Sleek and Structured.” All three always look amazing every time. Which of these three do you readers relate to the most? You can click here to purchase this jacket from the J Brand website for $260.

Kristen Stewart was spotted making her way to catch the Florence + The Machine show at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, California. I wanted to attend this show so bad. It was in collaboration with The Weeknd, who is just amazing.
Well, back to the denim that Kristen had on, she wore a pair of black Custom Hudson Nico Shorts. I have been trying to figure these shorts out for quite some time now, since back when she wore them at the Cannes Film Festival. I always thought they just looked amazing on her and her legs are never ending every time she wears them… Well, I think the second part is just in general. You can click here to purchase Hudson at Shopbop.com.
Kate Bosworrth of was spotted spending a day out with her fiancé Michael Polish in Sydney, Australia. She wore a pair of Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans in Wonderland. I have been waiting forever to see someone wear these jeans out. I just love the classic blue wash of them.
I also find the fit of these jeans to be a really good one on Kate. There is not that much bunching, but there is enough that will help flatter the legs and keep them looking long. I am liking that she is leaning towards more streamlined fitted jeans these days. I find that they really do flatter her body a lot more than baggier styles. Although, she does pull of those just as well. You can click here to purchase these jeans at SSENSE for $200.
