AG has shot a short film of the process of making a pair of jeans. This isn’t a documentary. It was shot by Independent Spirit Nominee Lee Toland Krieger. It shows two actors having a quick tryst and later the male actor getting inspired by his counterpart.
He envisions a pair of the 22 Years Destroyed for her and later during sketching he finds himself picking out the cotton and later again appearing in the factory. As the film goes on, you see him, along with others, choosing the fabric, creating his own detail and washing them, then finally finishing them off. He does all this in his own pair of the AG Matchbox in 2 Years Dark. As he holds on to the finishing pair he sees his muse in them and is completed. They then later drive off. The film also features an original remix of The Virgins’ One Week of Danger remixed by DJ Gigamesh. You can see the film above.
Lorna’s note – The short film does also contain some underwear scenes so if you are at work, click with caution.
I came across Mary Frances bags a while ago and I became obsessed with how pretty they are! She makes the most unique and wonderful bags I have seen, she has guitar shapes, apples, bows, flowers, telephones, fish bowls, piano’s, owls and so many more designs! Each of the bags are hand made and feature a lot of embellishment in the form of crystals, beads and sequins etc.
What struck me the most was that she has a whole denim collection! Handbags, clutches, purses, necklaces and even a compact mirror! They are all made from premium denim fabric and they are really pretty! Denim bags to me are not usually anything special, I find them to be quite bland and boring but Mary Frances combines the fabric with class and girlishness so the products are wonderful!
I have the premium denim clutch which is featured above and I obsess over it! It has the cutest fabric and beaded flower in the top corner as you can see and it’s sparkly too. It’s one of my favourite clutches. I find it perfect for me because I am going somewhere smart where no denim is allowed, I can still wear denim with this clutch! I always love to have denim, being obsessed with it like I am and all, ha ha.
The amount of time and effort that goes into her bags is incredible, you can really appreciate them much more because of it. The bag also features a denim strap with a metal chain on it which is detachable so you can wear it as a shoulder bag or keep it as a clutch. I always prefer clutches as I can never get used to a strap across me! What do you think of the bags? I also own the really pretty Take A Bow clutch which is extra girly and not made of denim. You can buy all of the denim bags here.
It’s the moment you guys have been waiting for! Net-A-Porter has finally launched their men’s site! They stock denim brands such as Balmain, Acne, YSL, APC, Rag & Bone and many more! The site just launched today so get shopping! Net-A-Porter is one of my favourite sites! Click here to shop Mr. Porter.
If you are a fan of the wonderful store Singer22, you will know that Nicole Richie was in store doing a personal appearance over the weekend. Here are some photos and a video of the event for those of you that unfortunately didn’t get to go, like myself. Jon, the owner and founder of Singer22, is also pictured with his wife, Alicia, in a couple of the photos.
Unfortunately Nicole was not wearing any denim but Alicia and Jon both were! Alicia was wearing a pair of Current/Elliott bell bottom jeans and Jon was wearing a pair of Nudie Thin Finn jeans. You can buy both of these jeans at Singer22.com. Nicole was of course wearing clothes and jewellery from her own line as she posed for photos and signed copies of her book.
