There is a new denim brand on the scene! Artisan De Luxe! Stars like Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Katie Holmes, Jessica Biel and Rachel Bilson are just a few celebs that are fans of the brand.
The premium denim brand is the latest venture of renowned designer Philippe Naouri and business mogul Jay Furrow. Together the two have over 30 years of experience in the apparel industry. Known as the “Vintage King” and “Denim Genius” Philippe Naouri launched Antik denim, and consulted at Diesel, G-Star, Levis, American Eagle, Restoration Hardware, Affliction, and Replay. Jay Furrow, currently Chairman and CEO of Artisan de Luxe, oversaw the tremendous growth of JOE’s Jeans and has managed the development of numerous private and public branded consumer product companies. This looks like a very exciting brand indeed!
The core of Artisan de Luxe is premium denim for men and women, complemented with knit and woven shirts, dresses, outerwear, fine jewelry and accessories. Leather embellishments, studded details, patchwork, wax treatments, and handcrafted stitching contribute to the innovative and rare look of this collection. The line is super cool & very vintage-inspired.
Blank Denim and Bloomingdales have teamed up to give you a special event at their brand new Santa Monica place store! Who doesn’t love free items? You get a free beach tote if you try on a pair of jeans and you get a free water bottle if you buy a pair!
The event is tomorrow, August 27th. All of the details are in the flyer above. Are you going?
Ashley Tisdale did a shoot for the September issue of Nylon magazine with her friend and co-star Aly Michalka. Ashley wore a pair of vintage Lee shorts (above) and a pair of Current/Elliott suspender shorts. Aly wore some Current/Elliott jeans (above) and a pair of J Brand skinny jeans. These girls really love their denim!
I included the 3 images of them wearing denim but if you want to read the interview you can check out the scans on Miss Tisdale or pick up the magazine. Thanks to Miss Tisdale for these scans as well! I love Ashley’s style so much! I’m really beginning to like Aly’s as well now.
