Rock & Republic Jeans
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.
Colin Farrell was not too pleased to see the paparazzi as he was snapped filling his car with gas at the station in Los Feliz, California. I heard rumours that Colin and Rihanna have been close friends for a while after meeting on the Graham Norton Show over here in England. He’s reportedly taking her to Ireland to meet his family!
Colin was wearing a brand of jeans that we don’t often see on the celebs anymore, Rock & Republic. He chose a very understated pair with dark blue R’s with a slim fitting dark wash. They fit him really well and I think it’s time we saw some more celebs rocking the brand, I do miss seeing them out and about! You can buy both men’s and women’s Rock & Republic jeans on their website here.
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias were spotted at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. The Russian tennis babe looks like she was wearing Rock & Republic Scorpion jeans in Amethyst wash. I have those jeans and LOVE them! Enrique is wearing his staple G Star jeans (of course); they were in the house for Enrique’s Euphoria Tour gig, and they looked to be having a grand time.
Have you heard that Enrique has been nominated for 14 awards at the 22nd Annual Billboard Latin Music Awards? Yep, he’s up for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, and Male and Hot Latin Song of the Year.
Adam Lambert was spotted enjoying a night on the town in Beverly Hills, California wearing Rock & Republic Slim F@#! jeans in Malevolent Black. Adam was his usual self, being all styled up and clad in skinny black R&Rs with a boy toy draped on his arm, as he headed out to dinner at the exclusive celebrity hangout, the Grand Havana Room.
Adam recently had a fun-filled weekend of celebration - he rang in his Golden 29th birthday on January 29th. He even tweeted, “Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes and parties!!! And- We’ve reached 260k for Charity:Water!!! Amaaaaaaazing!”
