Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were spotted on a stroll through Paris, France. The couple were both sporting some premium denim from their favorite brands. Jennifer donned a pair of Vince Skinny Jeans in Pandora, a Balmain blazer and my favorite scarf also by the fashion house with some white Supergas.
Justin wore a pair of Nudie Thin Finn jeans in Coated Indigo. I remember writing about these a while back. I was hoping to see someone in them. I think they did an amazing job with the coating. These can easily be mistaken as actual leather pants. It makes me actually want to see Justin wear some leather trousers. I think he is one that can pull them off well. You can click here to purchase Jennifer’s jeans from the Vince website for $210 and here for Nudie and Balmain at SSENSE.
Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady were spotted spending a day out at the park with son Benjamin in Boston, Massachusetts. She wore a pair of the Rag & Bone Feather Print Leggings. I didn’t realize they are as cropped as they are on Gisele. I think they look amazing at this length.
Gisele wasn’t the only one wearing some great denim. Tom was also wearing a great pair by Nudie. We haven’t spotted much Nudie out lately. I always like their view on denim and how it should have a natural story written (not literally) on it by each person who wears it. You can click here to purchase both Rag & Bone and Nudie at SSENSE.
Here are some photos from the Nudie Fall/Winter 2012 press day in Los Angeles, California. Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend, but our LA correspondent Chanelle was able to and got these photos for us.
The Fall Winter 2012 season delivers a unisex denim collection produced entirely from 100% organic cotton – everything down to pocket linings, buttons, rivets and labeling are all raw materials. Since the brand was founded in 2001, there has been a long term vision of producing organic collections and this Fall we come one step closer.
Inspiration looks to the historic Swedish working culture, harmonized with the use of Japanese plaid fabrics and subdued autumnal tones. Denim breathes nostalgia, with romantic washed blues and greys juxtaposed against strong dry selvage styles, with a hit of irony seen in the Icon Orange.
I think they have some great pieces here. I find you always get that same Nudie vibe in every collection of theirs, which is good because it means they stay true to who they are as a brand. What do you think of the collection guys?

I got the opportunity to visit the Nudie Jeans house in LA last week and I could not have been more thrilled. I’ve always felt that Nudie was stepping up the denim game and have always respected what they have been about. As I walked in to the warm, cozy room I was greeted by the ever so lovely Ruari and was offered a latte or “water in a box” (as apposed to water in a plastic bottle well, because it’s more eco friendly of course!) and we began our journey.
The 600 sq foot House opened up in early September 2011 and is in an ideal location. The house is a small little bungalow off Melrose Blvd. smack dab in the middle of West Hollywood and is made out of wood with rod iron accents, chalkboard walls and a gorgeous sky light in the middle of the roof bringing a great light to the space. I was taken around the LA house which serves as a denim sanctuary, showroom and retail space open to the public. Not only can go you shop there but you can bring your old damaged Nudie’s in for repair or come in for an alterations clinic (which is why they have that rad sewing machine in the building).
I browsed, touched, and fell in love with the line, bungalow and brand all together leaving me wanting to own every pair of Nudie Jeans that they produce. To give you an idea of what Nudie is all about, in the fall they launched their Repair: Reuse: Reduce program which sees old Nudie Jeans repaired and recycled for sale again.
Also on display at the LA house is their Woad / Guado collection which is a limited edition line made out of the traditional way to make indigo. The dyestuff is from the Woad plant and is very labor intensive as it takes 1000 kilos of leaves to make 1 kilo of dyestuff. This line is only at a select number of Nudie stores and the LA store has it. Nudie loves encouraging a sustainable lifestyle and it shows through their brand and the way they produce it.
Another awesome little fact about Nudie for all of you LA residents… The rad dudes at Handsome Coffee House in the Arts District in Downtown all sport Nudie aprons. They are world class professional coffee makers that roast their own beans and travel the world to find the best ones, making them a perfect partner for Nudie. If you’re ever in the LA area you HAVE to check out the Nudie Jeans House and if you make your way Downtown, stop by Handsome Coffee House to support an awesome local business. Nudie would approve. Thanks for having me Nudie, I will be back and my bank account will not be happy about it.
