Ideeen presents tapered skinny pants and jeans paired with gorgeous, elaborate jackets at this low key but high-impact presentation in Greenwich Village. Tie dyed denim, felted wool, fur and silks are wildly blended in this dark, urban collection of separates for the fashion brave. My favorite? The acid stained denim dress, strangely woven together and crafted into a perfect feminine form!

Hot off the press from WWD is the news that Hilary Duff is about to collaborate on the design for a collection with DKNY Jeans. The line, which has been dubbed Femme for DKNY Jeans, is targeted to women in their 20′s, who, like Duff, aspire to that flirty yet laid back style.
In her recent interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Duff said that in her opinion, “One of the hardest things [was] to come up with [the collection's] name.“ She continued that, “Femme works really well and explains the line perfectly as feminine but tough all at the same time. It’s aggressive, but in a good way.“
We’ve all seen Hilary herself in that exact same light I think! There may have been a cat fight or two, but the girl has truly remained a class act…
“There is truly something in this line for every girl whose styles change every day, like mine does,” said Duff. “Sometimes I want to wear tight leather leggings with a big plaid shirt, or other days, I want to wear a floral-print dress but make it look edgy. Some days I like to be a bit more punk rock, but in a girly way. I love wearing layers and scarves, and I love that his line can be mixed and matched just the way you want it to. I think it’s the perfect line for young girls who can’t afford to buy a lot of clothes these days.“
Although we haven’t seen the lookbook yet, the sketches are looking nice. And, from her description, I have to admit, I’m pretty excited to shop the collection too. Check it out:

Yet another celebrity and singer is moving onto the denim fashion scene. None other than country star Toby Keith, famous for his head to toe denim looks and country swagger, is now also the name and face behind a new line of menswear–that will most likely retail at a lower price point–somewhere from $20 to $60.
The line, which will feature not only jeans and other denim pieces (jackets and button downs too), will also include t-shirts, polo shirts, baseball hats and even leather wrist straps and bandanas for the men out there who really want to channel that down home look. The line, appropriately named “TK Steelman”, will debut on February 18th at Keith’s Vegas restaurant “I Love This Bar & Grill” (after his song of course) located in the famous Harrah’s.
Sorry guys, no pics for now…but, I bet if you close your eyes and conjure up an image of TK himself, you’ll pretty accurately be able to imagine what men ages 24-55 are going to be buying at Target, Wal-Mart and even Macy’s when they pick up some of the new TK Steelman line starting in March.
I’m allowed to veer slightly off topic every once in a while, right? I am sooooo excited for this Alexander McQueen line to be released at Target. While there will be denim in McQueen’s line for Target, I’m pretty sure it won’t be designer. My Honey should be MEGA scared of what the credit card bill will show for Target in March!
Alexander McQueen, will be drawing from his McQ collection (that means girlie TOUGH) for his limited-run McQ Alexander McQueen for Target line, available March 1 through April 11, with rock n’ roll influence, studs, and tattoo-print fabrics. Go International will still be continuing, because it focuses on emerging designers, and additional designer collaborations are said to be in the pipeline.
“The collection has a muted color palette of black, white, gray and tan with accents of cobalt blue and bright pink. Studs and meshgive items an edge. For example, a chambray sleeveless shirtdress has stud detailing, there’s a mesh wrap dress and an open yarn zipper cardigan. Graphic prints and silk-screen photographs give tunics, dresses and T-shirts visual interest. The Leila silk-screen T-shirt with a necklace collar was designed for The Duke Spirit lead singer, while other band members are immortalized on a sleeveless jersey T-shirt.”
