This Spring/Summer 2012 season, Shine is introducing their denim collection to the USA. The well known boutique on rue de Poitou has launched their own denim collection line! The collection will be available on Shopbop, Jill Roberts (LA), Kisan (NY) and many other specialty boutiques.
Shine has a range of pastel coloured denim, flares, skinny jeans and denim shirts. Each pair is made to fit the body and give a chic casual look. The gallery features a few of their best sellers below. The prices for the jeans are around $300, the shorts around $230 and the denim shirts are around $280.
Shine is a bit more than a boutique, Shine is a concept which celebrates its tenth anniversary. With a different selection, vision and way of interpreting fashion and trends, Shine is unique and has a strong identity. You can check out their website to find out more about them at shineparis.com
Goldsign has launched a new line called Goldskin. The pieces of the clothing will be made in amazing suede. There will be a jacket, Denise (above), a baggy cuffed short, Faye, a mid-calf length skirt, Jane, and a cropped high-waisted skinny, Jenny.
I knew that suede was going to be the next big thing after leather. I am so happy to see that more brands are getting into the market. I can’t wait to see the rest of this collection.
Don’t Cry Baby is an Italian fashion brand with its head office in Milan and has been in business for two years. They just completed their Spring/Summer 2012 collection and you can see some of the styles in the gallery below. I actually really like this brand, they have fun washes and styles that look really nice.
The production is based in Italy within the Venice area, a region that has been made famous for its large concentration of denim “production companies” and also for the expertise that the area has. Their goal is to deliver a product with the finest denim whether it’s an Italian denim or Japanese twill. They believe that the authentic true denim in time only gets better with wash after wash or just the older and worn out it gets. They take pride in buying quality denim like the latest modal denim, or authentic denim, stretch, bi-stretch and all the latest denims that are exposed at the Paris trade shows. The washes are also produced in an environmentally friendly way.
The price range for these Don’t Cry Baby jeans is between €150 and €250. They have an average premium denim price point which I am glad about. They also mention that a lot of Italian celebrities are wearing their jeans. I also saw that the lovely Chiara from The Blonde Salad is a fan too! What do you think of the brand? I will be posting the full Look Book soon. You can check out their website here and also purchase the jeans.
Here is one of the videos to correspond with the highly anticipated Balmain diffusion line, Pierre Balmain. It holds the Balmain punk feel with all the zippers, tight fits, and slouchy tops. I think this collection will do well. I can’t wait to see the still pictures of the pieces. You can watch the video above to watch Abbey Lee Kershaw and Our Mountain prance around the city city in the clothing.
