Emmanuelle Alt made an appearance back in late January at the Gucci/Vogue Paris Dinner in honor of designer Frida Giannini. Emmanuelle wore a pair of jeans from one of her favorite brands, J Brand. This time she chose the Lexington in Shadow. I like that these are a bit looser, like trousers. It gives them a more professional feel, in lack of a better term.
One thing that I love most about Emmanuelle’s style is…she loves low rise jeans/pants. Though these aren’t low, she is wearing them low. She, with her personal style, along with what she consults for, rarely have shown high-rise pairs, if anything their high rises are the standard medium rise of many other brands. I don’t find high-rise unflattering, I just find that you need the body for them otherwise they will shorten the legs. You can click here to purchase J Brand jeans at Singer22.com
Diesel has come out with a new collection of jeans for their brand, the Dirty New Age Denim. Diesel have been using mud and oil and other natural substances to create unique washes for many years now but this time they have taken it a step further. Putting together the development and research of the last 10 years, these washes combine many techniques and heavily introduce the use of natural dirty colors as the next step for Diesel Denim. I love the Darron 8MZ!
They have been studying for ten years and developing to create new shades of dirty denim for you. They combined over six types of treatments, a bleaching process and even a golden brush. Diesel applied the dirt by hand in some instances just to give you a Shade of Rust. Vertical hatching and manual abrasions added to the hype of the 3D whiskering in their new Shades of Stripes. Red cast denim was pressed and given white spots. From that they came up with the new Shade of Chalk. 3D evolution and shadow treatments teamed up with other effects to create shades of mud. Other great washes came about during this denim exploration including Raw Paint and Shades of Foam, Sand, and Linen. Diesel did all of this, just to say… Welcome to the Diesel Denim DIRTY NEW AGE!
Looks like Kate Moss jumped on the Black Orchid bandwagon. These jeans just seem to be getting more and more popular. Though being as popular as they are, I think seeing them on Kate Moss must be a great feeling for them. She was spotted out and about in London wearing a pair of the Black Jewel skinny jeans in Newton. I like that many of the celebrities are rocking the more affordable brands right now like Black Orchid, Blank, and O*T*R. Kate herself was also spotted a while back wearing a pair by another lower priced line, O*T*R. It’s good to see that they still choose fit over price.
I wonder what Kate thinks of what is going on with friend John Galliano? I am shocked to hear what has happened with him, being that he is my favorite designer. Then to hear what he has done is pretty appalling. I think many are going to be distancing themselves during this time from Galliano. You can click here to purchase Black Orchid jeans at Singer22.

I came across Mary Frances bags a while ago and I became obsessed with how pretty they are! She makes the most unique and wonderful bags I have seen, she has guitar shapes, apples, bows, flowers, telephones, fish bowls, piano’s, owls and so many more designs! Each of the bags are hand made and feature a lot of embellishment in the form of crystals, beads and sequins etc.
What struck me the most was that she has a whole denim collection! Handbags, clutches, purses, necklaces and even a compact mirror! They are all made from premium denim fabric and they are really pretty! Denim bags to me are not usually anything special, I find them to be quite bland and boring but Mary Frances combines the fabric with class and girlishness so the products are wonderful!
I have the premium denim clutch which is featured above and I obsess over it! It has the cutest fabric and beaded flower in the top corner as you can see and it’s sparkly too. It’s one of my favourite clutches. I find it perfect for me because I am going somewhere smart where no denim is allowed, I can still wear denim with this clutch! I always love to have denim, being obsessed with it like I am and all, ha ha.
The amount of time and effort that goes into her bags is incredible, you can really appreciate them much more because of it. The bag also features a denim strap with a metal chain on it which is detachable so you can wear it as a shoulder bag or keep it as a clutch. I always prefer clutches as I can never get used to a strap across me! What do you think of the bags? I also own the really pretty Take A Bow clutch which is extra girly and not made of denim.
