With Japanese fabric and Italian washes, Blessed & Cursed utilizes a specialised pattern technique ensuring the silhouette, as well as the fit, will give the body a slim elegant look. Women and men of all shapes will find Blessed & Cursed jeans a new favorite.
They also offer accessories that can be teamed up with its jeans, such as leather and jeans jackets, vests, tanks, belts and other accessories.

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!
The price points for the rest of their items are as follows: Denim – $179- $249, Denim Jackets – $229- $249, Tops /Vests – $89 – $179 and Leather Jackets – $499- $799.
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!
