7 For All Mankind used to make a lot of trouser jeans before the skinny jeans trend took a hold of the denim market. For this season, Holiday 2010, they are re releasing lots of trouser jeans in many washes and different cuts! They have brought some of their older best selling styles back like the Dojo.
This new line of trousers has been named by 7 For All Mankind ‘The Trouser Story’. It makes a fresh change to see some trouser style jeans on the market right now! 7 For All Mankind say their trousers create a polished, tailored, lean line – all while keeping the comfortable flattering fit that is synonymous to the brand.
If you click this blog post you can see all of the new artwork sketches of the trousers. There are 7 images in total and I think the drawings are gorgeous! They should make all of their images in art, I love it! Which style is your favourite? I think the Dojo is the cutest!
Actress Rachel Bilson was seen taking her little sisters shopping at Party City in Burbank, Los Angeles, California yesterday (28). It must be really cool having Rachel as an older sister! I would love it! She was wearing a pair of Siwy Denim skinny jeans in a light wash with a loose white tee and black flats. True to Rachel’s style, she opted for some black sunglasses too!
I really like these jeans on her actually, she looks really good in them. They fit really nicely and the wash is a pretty light blue. I find a lot of the time that light washes are harder to get looking authentic. Also, I finally just got the Siwy’s that have been on my wish list for forever! The Hannah’s in Bluestorm! You can buy Siwy jeans at Boutique To You and Singer22.
Joe’s Jeans have got a brand new video out to promote their new denim collection. The video is very arty and very intriguing! I love it! I especially love the shorts on the women on the swing, so cute! What do you think of the video? Do you love the new styles showcased in the short advert?
We caught up with Daniella Clarke, the founder and designer behind the wonderful brand Frankie B. We wanted to find out more about her new styles, her cargo pants and her new higher rise jeans! Yep, she is bringing out jeans with a medium rise! Carry on reading below to find out more. Also, just to let you readers know, I will be doing a review on her new cargo pants this week! They are gorgeous!
DB: What are you working on for next season? Anything new?
I’m currently working on Spring Summer 2011. We are still focusing heavily on leggings and fun light weight fabrics .
DB: I heard you were doing a higher rise jean, is that true?
We did introduce a mid rise jean due out soon. I know that we are mainly known for our low rise jean but I want to offer an alternative to the girl that wants to wear Frankie B. but might want a higher rise. I don’t want to be a one trick pony but to be frank it’s hard to break the assumptions that Frankie B. is illegally low. I admit we were very low 10 years ago when we started but we are much more than that now.
DB: Tell us about your new cargo pant! It’s gorgeous!
Thank you I agree! We have been consistently offering a Cargo throughout the years in almost every collection. The Cargo has always been a strong seller for us. The new Maury cargo is a skinny done in an ultra soft light weight twill. Super comfy but still has that Frankie B. edge and sexiness.
DB: Will we be seeing anymore cargo pants from you next season?
We are going forward with the Maury Cargo in White, Khaki and gun metal.
DB: What has been your inspiration for your current collection?
I’ve always loved that tough chic kinda ‘tom boy’ attitude, which played in perfectly with the military trends of the season.
DB: What are your favourite trends at the moment and jeans you have designed?
My personal fave of this season is definitely the cargo!
