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!
Katie Holmes was spotted doing some shopping with daughter Suri in New York. This is the third time we have spotted Katie in these blue ombre Frankie B. jeans. I think she looks a bit drab in this outfit and the color of her flats only adds a weirdness to the look. I think Katie can do a lot better with the styling of these jeans. It looks like she has worn these more than we have blogged about. They look to be stretched out quite a bit.

Katie Holmes was spotted wearing her ombre Frankie B. jeans again. She was on set on her new movie “Son of No One” with daughter Suri. Katie really knows how to show the versatility of her clothes, this is a completely different look, more feminine, than the last time she wore them.

It looks like Katie Holmes is trying to take her “Denim Diva” crown back from Ashley Tisdale. We have spotted her in denim many times the past week. Katie opted for a pair of blue ombre Frankie B. jeans for a day out with daughter Suri. I think she has great style, there is always this relaxed vibe in everything she wears.
