J Brand is not only known for their great jeans but also their great collaborations. J Brand recently collaborated with acclaimed US brand Proenza Schouler. Now they’ve teamed up with 5 emerging British designers for their 5×5 Collaboration.
J Brand has teamed up with Christopher Kane, Erdem, Richard Nicoll, Peter Pilotto and Medham Kirchoff to create 5 distinct looks.
As J Brand’s founder Jeff Rudes explains, “Working with all five designers on 5 x 5 was a very rewarding experience for us. Each designer had a unique interpretation of J Brand that continues to expand the breadth of our brand. Our mission is to be a fashion leader that is making a difference; the project will help support future young designers through the Centre for Fashion Enterprise, the London organization that provides business guidance and mentoring for emerging fashion design talent.”

Check out each of the designer’s collaborations below:
Jessica Alba is busy promoting her latest film, Machete. She was seen boarding a gondola in Venice, Italy. She was in town promoting Machete for the 67th annual Venice Film Festival.
Jessica wore a denim jacket, floral top and gray chinos for her ride through the canals. Jessica was wearing CHINO’s by William Rast, the Tommy Tomboy skinny slouchy chino in Seagull. I actually have these chinos and adore them, I’ve barely taken them off since I purchased them. I reviewed them on the forum boards here. You can buy them from Nordstrom for $88.00.
Liam Gallaghers clothing line ‘Pretty Green’ has just launched a brand new denim line. The line is called Pretty Green Black Label and they just released their Autumn/Winter 2010 Jeanswear. Each pair is easily identifiable by a unique Pretty Green lime green stained edge logo, embossed leather back patch, antique nickel buttons and rivets and a signature Pretty Green coated pocket stud.
As with the rest of the collection, the design process of the jeans was carefully monitored and developed by Liam Gallagher. The straight-cut fit was modeled on Liam’s favourite shape and the wash was slowly perfected through a series of design trials. Available in a black 12.7oz denim and indigo 12.5oz denim, the jeans are made with a 2% lycra mix creating a comfortable fit and helping to retain the original shape.
The jeans RRP at £85 and are available from the Carnaby Street Store, Selfridges and www.prettygreen.com. What do you think of them? I think both pairs look quite nice!
A newly single Miley Cyrus spent some time in NYC with her girlfriends. Miley is taking time off from filming her newest film, LOL: Laugh Out Loud, in Detroit. Justin Bieber recently commented that he wants to remake Grease, with Miley as a co-star. I wonder if they were discussing a possible remake because moments after this photo of Miley leaving the hotel was snapped, Justin was spotted leaving the same hotel!
Miley certainly looked grown up in a pair of tiny studded denim shorts, a black tee and black over the knee boots. I love how Miley’s shorts just have studding along the seams but if you zoom in, they’re more like spikes! This outfit reminds me of something that Rihanna would wear. I guess Miley’s still trying to revamp her look.
