Manolo Blahnik has recently brought out his new Denim d’Orsay shoe. It’s his latest cute, little, feminine pair of heels made from denim and features a rhinestone buckle on the front of each shoe. They have a 3.5″ heel so they are not too high and not too low and will set you back $715. I think these shoes are really pretty, they would look great paired up with your LBD or a more fancy dress for going out to dinner. What’s your take on denim shoes? Do you like them?

Please find information on “Rockin’ Dots” , a new capsule collection from Diesel that sees the brand return to its rock and roll roots.
The new line combines both classic items and archive pieces which have been updated in limited numbers with Diesel’s bold signature- think heat sealed polka dot detailing on denim jackets and skirts, painterly perforations on a men’s denim work shirt or underlaying metal hardware on a denim tail coat.
Designed by the Diesel Creative Team, headed by Creative Director Wilbert Das, “Rockin’ Dots” is currently available at Diesel stores nationwide
Attached I have included the official press release on the new line as well as some of the key denim items from the range. Do let me know if you require any of the following in a higher resolution.
The Diesel Creative Team, headed by Creative Director Wilbert Das, unveils the brand’s bold soul once more for this heavy on the metal collection. For the chicks we’ve got skinny black pants together with micro studded backless tops or dark denim skirts with matching jackets. By day, striped jersey dresses with macro dots are combined with long zipped vests or quilted leather jackets, while evening brings dark denim sprinkled with sequins. Other highlights of the women’s collection include rebellious versions of orchestra jackets and knitted dresses worn under light oversized shirting.
For men, perforated leather pants, knitwear and shirting laser-cut with the collection’s signature dots; t-shirts and hooded sweaters with micro studding, under light weight nylon jackets; rock-infused metallic anoraks and black basics convey the dark inspiration behind the collection with viper green accents on tops and pants.
Rock inspired accessories include, for men, “vintage” bleach treated sneakers and perforated trainers in metallic leather. For girls, sequinned and studded shoes take inspiration from the original punks with perforated boots in supple suede. Bags are borrowed from boyfriend’s closets with nylon backpacks and messenger styles being a key feature of the “Rocking Dots” collection.
Nine Days is a new denim brand is just introducing itself into the fashion market. Some of their styles look really cute and very on trend. They have a lot of tie dye styles, coloured denim and interesting washes. Here is some more info on the brand:
Leadership is the prerogative of the brave. The courage to be first is only imbued in the select few with the rest relegated to the anonymity of mediocrity. For the past decade, Donwan Harrell has been at the forefront of innovation in the denim industry leaving the competition with no choice but to follow suit. With Nine Days denim, Harrell brings his revolutionary design to those of the revolutionary mindset. To those who separate themselves from the masses. The iconoclasts, the counter culturists. Those who wear their fashion as a badge of honor indicating that they are unlike the rest.
Nine Days is the product of ingenuity and art using denim as a canvas. Forged from the mind that brought you PRPS, Harrell now brings you the color of 70’s revolution and the attitude of 80’s punk in a timeline convergent with the fashion forward – with an average retail price under $120 as to lower the price on the ownership of cool.
Using premium denim with unconventional washes and treatments, Nine Days is not for those that accept the uniform. This is for the influencers, the early adopters, the beneficiaries of the flattery which is bred by imitation. To win the race you can’t be afraid to take the lead. Follow No One.
