Rock & Republic Jeans
Since we don’t usually post about Rock & Republic for Kohl’s, I thought it might be nice to showcase some of their new styles for the store. We used to post about the brand when they were premium and sold on their own website, but since the change over, we don’t really hear much about them anymore.
From what I can see, it looks like they kept the signature R on the back pockets, but they changed the style of their jeans and where they are made to fit the price range. You can see some of the new looks in the gallery below and they can be picked up at Kohl’s for $54 – $88 or on their website. What do you Rock & Republic fans think of the new styles?
After appearing on Live with Regis and Kelly, to promote The Help, Emma Stone took some time out in NYC. Emma and a girlfriend grabbed lunch at Japonica before strolling over to Chelsea piers to get some ice cream. After lunch, Emma playfully snapped a few photos of the paparazzi.
Emma wore a pair of Rock & Republic skinny jeans, a gray tee and Rebecca Minkoff booties. One of the great things about Rock & Republic is their longer inseams, it’s a shame that they’re overhauling the line and re-branding because I have the feeling their new line won’t have such long inseams.

This is a sighting we haven’t had in a while! A pair of Rock & Republic jeans! Catherine Zeta-Jones was wearing a pair of their skinny jeans while grabbing a coffee from Starbucks in New York City yesterday.
Since Rock & Republic recently got taken over and will now be selling their jeans at Kohl’s for around $40, I can’t imagine that we will be seeing many celebs in the brand anymore (read the article here). I think it’s a mistake that they are doing this. I know the company is in trouble but they should at least completely change the name and the logos so the premium denim Rock & Republic can still have some status in the denim world. That’s just my opinion though. What do you think about it?

Rock & Republic was recently acquired by VF corporation who now owns the rights to the brand. VF corporation recently announced an exclusive agreement which will bring Rock & Republic to Kohl’s department stores. The deal is thought to be part of Kohl’s plan to establish more exclusive brands and labels for their stores. Kohl’s President Kevin Mansell stated, “We’re really excited about it. We think it’s something we needed.”
While, in the past, Rock & Republic jeans have sold for upwards of $200, the line at Kohl’s will have a much lower price point, anticipated to sell in the range of $39-49, which is typical for the department store. They will also be produced and supplied by VF corporation’s factories in North Carolina. The line will appear in Spring 2012 and feature men’s and women’s styles in footwear, denim and shirts and may eventually expand to kid’s wear and home accessories.
