What do you think of Nadel & Pen’s new styles? Do you like what they stand for? I do believe in everything they stand for, denim is very important.
DKNY recently partnered with HSN to launch a capsule collection. The collection will be available through HSN and HSN.com, and was inspired by the St. Jude’s Hospital Thanks and Giving campaign.
The campaign is a holiday fundraising and awareness program which encourages consumers to “give thanks for the healthy kids in your lives and to give to those who are not.” Funds raised from the Thanks and Giving program benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The capsule collection will feature tees, scarves, track suits and jeans. This collection features brand sensibilities of both DKNY JEANS and St. Jude’s by fusing iconic elements of New York and key St. Jude heritage words, HOPE, BELIEVE and DREAM. Price points for the line range between $29 and $79, making each piece an affordable. This capsule also marks the first DKNY JEANS product available in woman’s sizes, with ranges from XS to 3X and size 2 to 24W.
Visit the HSN website to view the entire collection.

Premium denim is taken to its next evolutionary step with the launch of Natural Selection. The new denim line delivers a fresh interpretation of denim, using the finest fabrics, authentic detailing and washes, coupled with innovative styling, for men.
Natural Selection was inspired by Darwin’s theory of evolution and as such this is a key part of the brand’s identity – from the raw unlaundered denim to the authentically treated pair, which might be over 100 years old. The notion that only the strongest will survive fits the brand’s keen desire to keep on evolving and achieve cult status in the market.
Design details include 14.5oz, red selvedge, narrow-width denim from Kurabo mills, Okayama Japan. Washes range from raw, through to bruised, broken and finally to buried, all are finished by hand. These jeans look really hot and very well made. Have any of you guys out there tried this brand yet? What do you think of them?
Heritage detailing is evident as all workmanship is authentic and of the highest standard. The entire seat area is chain stitched including the waistband and features a disappearing chain stitch. Further homage is paid using triangular stitch on the top button and hidden rivets. Discreet detailing is key; Natural Selection rivets are non-branded on the outside yet branded ‘NS’ inside. A beautiful, hand drawn illustration upon the leather patch specially designed by the graphic artist Reilly – utilising a subtly British concept of an ornate floral design inspired by the decorative engravings on British shotguns – provides a background for the iconography of a pheasant riding a penny farthing, a dual reference to classic, British innovation.
Natural Selection offers the unique detail of additional piping to all major seams on belt loops, front and back pockets and the rear yoke. This aesthetic detail exaggerates the wearing in process. Further more, the signature H Belt Loop helps the range to be instantly identifiable as Natural Selection, whilst each style has a discreet leather flag for identity. The placement of this detail changes depending on the style. The fly buttons contrast, the top button being brass and the others iridium, each button is stamped with the Greek letters of GOTS.
Popular brand, Red Engine is bringing science to denim. They recently teamed up with scientists at DOW XLA, to stop gravity! The Fall ’09 collection will feature DOW XLA™Re:Flex4™ Fiber. This technology will reduce the wrinkling and sagging that frequently occurs after a couple hours of wear. It keeps the jeans’ silhouette, minimizing sagging, 4 way-stretch and keeping jeans skinny.
