Supermodel Christy Turlington has teamed up with Citizens of Humanity for a good cause. As part of their Just Like You series, Citizens hosted a VIP screening of Christy’s film, Every Mile, Every Mother, and Roger Ross Williams’ film, Tutu: The Essence of Being Human.
Christy’s film trails her charity, Every Mother Counts, which aims to raise awareness for pregnancy and child-birth related deaths around the world, as they embark on the Hood to Coast relay Race. Williams’ film is an intimate look at Desmund Tutu and his wife, as they celebrate her birthday. The event, which took place at Soho House in New York City, included guests like Karlie Kloss, Amy Astley, and Dree Hemingway.
Citizens has also produced a limited edition t shirt, which all proceeds go to Every Mother Counts and are available for purchase at Citizensofhumanity.com.
This season, G-Star RAW celebrated its 25th anniversary with a premium denim range called The Retrospective Range. The brand has re-introduced innovative denim from its early years and updated it for today, including a heavyweight 25oz raw denim and a 25 years-of-wear wash. For women, three jeans have been created based on the classic men’s designs, but reworked with refined stitching. The fits are tapered and slightly cropped to reveal the feminine ankle. You can check out the fits below!
Authentic denim workwear, since 1994 – The Lumber is inspired by an early miner’s pant that would have been worn over trousers as protection. Workwear inspired details such as a cinch-back and enlarged back pockets are prominent in the design.
Functional workwear, since 1995 – Inspired by a carpenter’s pant and translated in denim, the Faeroes is built to be tough and long wearing. Two layers of denim are constructed into each knee. Traditionally stuffing was put between the layers to protect the knees when working.
The birth of 3D denim, since 1996 – The G-Star Elwood was created by G-Star head designer Pierre Morisset in 1996. The design is inspired by the weathered pants of a passing motorcyclist. With this very first 3D denim design, G-Star mapped out a new way of thinking about denim.
The Retrospective Range jeans for women are made of Red Listing denim, and finished with refined stitching. A ‘dip and dry’ finish gives this crisp Red Listing fabric a soft hand-feel. What do you think of them?
Divercity Denim is a newer brand to us here at DenimBlog, even though it has been going for 2 years and selling really well in stores. The brand is extremely passionate about their local manufacturing and the founder was a production manager for a denim company before starting this label. The Divercity Denim factory is in Brunswick and the laundry is in Coburg (Melbourne), currently they are helping to keep about 35 skilled denim workers employed.
Putting all of this aside though, they are truly passionate about and in love with denim. They use Premium Japanese Denim and their wash techniques give them the ability to create fantastic looks, using heavy stone washing/hand brushing/enzyme washing/hand grinding and so on. They currently only design jeans for the guys, but they will be moving into women’s by the end of the year! Divercity’s main focus is to have a sleek looking jean that can be worn to the office and then straight out to a bar for a great night. You will be able to enjoy bringing out the natural characteristics of your denim with every wear! You can check out their look book in the gallery below. What do you think?
