There is a new denim brand on the scene! Artisan De Luxe! Stars like Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Katie Holmes, Jessica Biel and Rachel Bilson are just a few celebs that are fans of the brand.
The premium denim brand is the latest venture of renowned designer Philippe Naouri and business mogul Jay Furrow. Together the two have over 30 years of experience in the apparel industry. Known as the “Vintage King” and “Denim Genius” Philippe Naouri launched Antik denim, and consulted at Diesel, G-Star, Levis, American Eagle, Restoration Hardware, Affliction, and Replay. Jay Furrow, currently Chairman and CEO of Artisan de Luxe, oversaw the tremendous growth of JOE’s Jeans and has managed the development of numerous private and public branded consumer product companies. This looks like a very exciting brand indeed!
The core of Artisan de Luxe is premium denim for men and women, complemented with knit and woven shirts, dresses, outerwear, fine jewelry and accessories. Leather embellishments, studded details, patchwork, wax treatments, and handcrafted stitching contribute to the innovative and rare look of this collection. The line is super cool & very vintage-inspired.
The list of collaborations this year has been endless and MiH has added another one to the list. They will be joining forces with Liberty to come out with a few limited edition pairs to their Autumn/Winter 2010 line. Drawing from the key decade of both brands, you can expect to see prints and fits from the 70s in what they are calling the “Flower Power” collaboration. They didn’t just stick to the jeans with the inspiration. They also grabbed details, like the stars from Liberty’s old shopping bag and logo, and incorporated them into the tags for this collaboration. Isn’t that a great idea?
I think the detail of the “Dakota” jeans above is very unique. But right on trend with the printed denim trend. They got a feather print designed by Liberty in the 60s and used the new technique of laser fading to put the detail on the jeans. I can see someone like Fergie or maybe Dakota Fanning wearing these. They also have these jeans that are very on trend for the Fall, a pair of purple velvet flares. Why not combine two of the biggest trends for Fall? Velvet and Flares. Plus it’s the Marrkesh fit, so you know they are flattering. They have to be the most flattering fit that I have ever seen on a woman. Great News! They will be available this week. So how many of you readers are willing to make a statement this fall with these jeans?
As the temperatures start to drop, many denim brands are going back to what made them big… DENIM. But staying on trend they of course have to come out with the cargos in the great material and Joe’s Jeans have come out with their own.
I think these are one of my favorite cargos that have come out. They come in one of their best selling and flattering fits, the Chelsea. So you know these are going to look good when you put them on. I also like the zipper on the inseam of the jeans and the flap back pockets. Cargos have truly become very versatile when they became skinny. Haven’t they? I like that you can look relaxed by just wearing them slouchy and with a hoodie. Or you can dress them up with a blazer and some heels. How many of you cargo lovers are going to try the denim versions out?
Two of my favorite brands, Proenza Schouler and J Brand announced their collaboration during Fall Fashion week. which had all over graffiti print, lending an 80s street vibe. The jean is made from 11oz of Japanese denim, which is printed, then painted to achieve the texture and dimension, ensuring a unique look. The collection was available for purchase starting in July.
However, the latest celebrity to wear the collaboration is Elly Jackson. For the infamous September issue of Vogue, Elly donned a pair of the black and white graffiti skinny jeans, as she appeared in a feature with models and celebrities like Dakota Fanning and Hayden Christensen.
