My denim review this week is on the Paige Denim Rikki Shortalls in Vintage Black. I’ve only reviewed one other pair of short dungarees and those were from Topshop last month, so it’s nice to be able to try out a premium pair. I did get these about two months ago, but I hadn’t had the chance to wear them and review them until last Thursday when I wore them to the Paige x Selfridges event in London.
Ripped, shredded and slashed jeans are always a symbol of Summer. We are very much used to distressed jeans throughout anytime of the year, however a trend that has exploded this season is jeans with slashes and rips down the front, making ripped holes instead of distressed areas.
We have seen many celebs wearing the Frame Le Color Rip jeans in both black and white and we are recently seeing the slashed Jimmy Jimmy jeans from Paige Denim out and about too. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a trend that pops up everywhere over the coming months so I have rounded up 16 of my favourite ripped and slashed jeans to buy right now! From brands like Frame, J Brand, Paige and Citizens to BLANK NYC, 3×1, RES and more! There’s also lots of colours, ranging from black, grey white and blue! There’s a pair for everyone of you!
The lovely Nikki Reed was seen out with Ian Somerhalder, leaving her home in Los Angeles, California together.
Nikki wore a pair of One Teaspoon denim cut off shorts with some brown ankle boots, a grey tee and a black kimono. I absolutely adore this combination, I think it’s really pretty and it has a great boho vibe to it! Buy One Teaspoon online at Shopbop.com.

7 For All Mankind are excited to announce that the gorgeous Miranda Kerr will be the new face of brands Fall/Winter 2014 Ad Campaign. Entitled #7Obsessions, the campaign features Miranda alongside Jon Kortajarena in a series of shots. The idea of an obsessive relationship between a man and a woman with “a woman’s obsession with her jeans.” #7Obsessions exposes the dark secrets within a relationship and new things to obsess about; from indie musicians to new blogs to the new 1984 boyfriend jean.
The FW14 campaign officially launches in August 2014 with a fresh multi-media approach alongside the print advertising creative. Launching #7OBSESSIONS is a 30-second commercial, which will air on August 11th to officially launch the campaign. Clad only in denim, all-star leading lady Miranda Kerr addresses her obsession with 7 For All Mankind jeans. “I love them,” she says as she seduces the viewer with her flawless natural beauty. “I love the way they fit. They feel so good.”
“This campaign beautifully embodies our Brand DNA. Our campaigns seek to create everlasting images that are effortlessly chic and memorable,” said Barry Miguel, President of 7 For All Mankind. “Along with the world-class team we assembled, we have truly created a varied array of imagery that will be remembered for years to come.”
Miranda Kerr’s star role was not just as model, but also collaborative partner. “Miranda was involved from the very beginning as we conceptualized #7Obesseions. Her creativity and input was inspiring and her efforts have continued throughout the editing process. She was involved to the very end.” says Andy Griffiths, Vice President, Marketing. Joining Kerr in front of the lens is Spanish model and actor, Jon Kortajarena. He has appeared in countless campaigns across the globe and even played a minor (yet memorable) role in Tom Ford’s directorial debut, A Single Man, where Jon’s rugged sensuality proved a perfect homage to the James Dean-esque archetypal of 1950’s sex appeal.
Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of this endeavor was putting together the creative team of top talent to bring 7 For All Mankind’s vision to life. The campaign was shot by renowned photographer, Sebastian Faena, known for his ability to imitate the energy of young Hollywood, thus creating exceptional images and an intoxicating narrative. Alex White, British-born editor and former Creative Fashion Director of W Magazine, styled the campaign for her inimitable aesthetic and creative denim pairings. David Lipman continues as 7 For All Mankind’s Creative partner.
7 For All Mankind’s Fall/Winter 2014 brand campaign truly epitomizes the brand’s vision to make the world’s best jeans. Consistent with the brand’s aesthetic, this season’s black and white imagery is sexy at heart, rooted in sophistication, yet forever cool. Cleverly appealing to both men and women and in the words of Miranda Kerr, “7’s: They didn’t just mean for all MANkind.”
