I think this is wonderful! This pocket design is pretty and loads different to Paige’s normal designs. Carry on reading below to find out how you can help those suffering from anorexia and buy these beautiful jeans.
This February, Paige Adams-Geller, the creator behind Paige Premium Denim and PPD Jeans, is using her past battle with an eating disorder and her celebrity adored jean line to help raise awareness for National Eating Disorders Month. Paige introduces the Tidal Jean – a limited edition design that will benefit The Kirsten Haglund Foundation – a charitable organization that provides hope, networking and financial aid to those seeking treatment and freedom from eating disorders.
Paige was initially inspired by an email she received from a young woman in early 2008. Like most days, Paige was answering the hundreds of personal emails that she gets from customers – questions about fits, washes and body types. She came across an email from a young girl in Idaho who suffered severe financial hardship due to her treatment for Anorexia – a service not covered by most insurance carriers. The email inspired Paige to spread awareness about eating disorders and to help raise money for those who could not afford treatment.
Later that fall, Paige’s mission was furthered when she met former Miss America Kirsten Haglund while the two women were speaking on an eating disorders panel at Harvard University. After meeting, Paige and Kirsten decided to join forces to raise money for Haglund’s foundation and help inspire others to get help.
The result is the Tidal Pocket – a layered denim pocket inspired by the ocean and a heart – encouraging women to love themselves and find serenity – just as Kirsten, Paige and others have done throughout their treatment. Available this February at Paige stores around the country, the Tidal Pocket will be featured on three styles:
The Silverlake Short: A low rise cutoff in the roughed up, vintage Harlow Destruction wash.
The Skyline Ankle Peg: The classic rise ankle skinny will be featured on the dark Rebel without a Cause wash.
The Laurel Canyon: Just like the Skyline, the signature low rise boot cut will also be available in the Rebel without a Cause wash.
Here are some images of the denim collection from DSquared2, modeled on the runway at the Milan Menswear Autumn/Winter 2010 fashion show on January 19, 2010 in Milan, Italy. Are any of you readers fans of DSquared2? Some of their styles look pretty nice. I wonder what their full collection will look like? It seems like loose fitting skinnies are still a huge part of the denim collections for the guys.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was hosted in Berlin. Denim made a big statement in No Ifs fashion show, from overalls to jeans and shirts; the styles were plain and not distressed, they are going for a more cleaner look with denim for next season.
The other trends I noticed in DIMITRI, Sam Frenzel, Penkov and Lena Hoscheck’s fashion shows were trench coats, leather pants and plaid. Trench coats are a staple piece for the autumn/winter wardrobe, I found it very interesting that they are pairing the long trench coats with boots or heels, it does look pretty hot but depending on where you live I don’t think this trend will work too well, bare legs in winter is something I am not a fan of.
Plaid was a big part of Lena Hoschecks runway show, she went for the older classic look of fitted shirts and trousers with plaid being a huge part of the print. I am a fan of checked shirts but I don’t like too much of it. It was a huge staple in Roberto Cavalli’s fashion show as well, plaid pants as well as the jackets. He also used animal print.
Bold and bright colours on long and floaty dresses were also standing out in No Ifs collection, like always, these pieces you can not go wrong with!
Another huge trend that I think might take off was dresses over leather skinny leggings/pants. I really really like this look, it combines the rock chick feel with a girly and bold vibe very well. I hope we see this style more often. I included loads of photos for you to see in the gallery below. Also included are celebs who attended wearing denim.

Hayden Panettiere is now a red head! She was departing Miami International Airport with her boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko in Miami, Florida yesterday (20th) sporting her brand new hair colour. Hayden was wearing the same jeans that Hilary Duff owns; Paige Premium Skinny jeans in Marble wash. Now that I can see all of the jean and the back pockets, I really like them. The wash is gorgeous! It reminds me of lightning, they are very pretty.
