For those of us that love PRPS jeans but just can’t afford the high price tag, here is the solution! King Krash jeans were founded by denim legend Donwan Harrell, the man behind PRPS jeans! King Krash takes its inspiration from the illegal street racing days of 1970’s Manhattan – an era of disco, fast women and even faster cars, where gang culture was rampant and the clothes you wore were as much a part of the scene as the racing itself.
A fervent muscle car junkie from a young age, Harrell ransacked his photo archives and those of his drag racing friends for King Krash inspiration. Each item is finished with Harrell’s unrivalled attention to detail and wash techniques, faithfully replicating the stains, creases, abrasions and rips resulting from a life lived in the fast lane.
The price point of these jeans is from £105-£145. Much more affordable. What do you think of the cuts and washes? These jeans are available to buy at Coggles.com.

Nicola Eibich is the designer for the brand, she originally created the Killer Couture jacket for Rihanna, but the jacket got so much publicity and everyone loved it much more than expected so they have put it into production! The jacket will come in a few different washes and will retail at $999. It’s quite a price tag but for all of those studs and crystals on the jacket, you can see why!

I can’t wait to see more from this brand! You can check out their website here.
Our writer Liznie found these images a while ago and asked me if they were Diesel jeans. They looked like them but I wasn’t 100% sure as I couldn’t find them anywhere. Yesterday while I was out shopping I found them! They are Diesel Matic 8CG and they are new for this season. Justine Mattera was wearing them for the ‘Alta Infedelta’ photocall at the Moderno Cinema in Rome, Italy. The jeans are so pretty, they have loads of stretch and a silver foil signature pocket with a silver foil patch on the back too. She looks gorgeous! So smart, so sophisticated and so pretty. Buy these jeans here at House of Fraser.

UPDATE – Rihanna is wearing a Blessed & Cursed Killer Couture jacket. I love it! More news on this brand coming very soon!
Rihanna wore a very unique spiked/crystallized/studded light wash denim jacket while she signed autographs at MediaMarkt home electronics store at Alexa Shopping Mall in Berlin, Germany. The jacket says ‘By The Grace Of God’ across the left side of it and I can’t seem to figure out who it’s by, does anyone know? I really like it, it’s so pretty!
