Rock & Republic Jeans
Back in April, Rock and Republic filed for Chapter 11 for bankruptcy protection and it was unsure if the brand was going to survive. All of that may have changed over the past week when, VF Corporation, the company that owns denim giants such as 7 For All Mankind and Wrangler jeans, purchased the Rock and Republic’s trademark rights.
While this news certainly is good for fans of Rock and Republic, it doesn’t mean the company is out of the woods yet. VF Corporation has only purchased the trademark and intellectual property of the brand. this means that the company name is owned by VF but not the actual stores and business themselves. The purchase by VF Corporation is supposed to be finalized in the spring, and the company plans to continue to fulfill orders.

Taryn Manning was spotted spinning some tunes at the US launch of the new Lotus. She was wearing the Rock & Republic Cage denim fitted blazer in Screamer White. There is something about this jacket that I find appealing. It is dressy with the lapel but has an edge with the fit. The only thing that I wish though is that it was more fitting on Taryn. She is a tiny girl so I understand it being a little big.
Have you readers heard some of Taryn’s songs with her band Boomkat? Their music actually is not that bad. I never would have thought that she had a voice like that. They were also featured in The Italian Job. Click here to purchase this jacket from the R&R website for $139.
