Selena Gomez was seen at The Grove in Los Angeles, California wearing Rock & Republic jeans. Wow it’s been a LONG time since I’ve blogged anyone in R&Rs. I first got into the whole “premium denim” thing in search of a beautiful pair of Rock & Republics, but now its been over two years since I’ve bought a pair from the brand.
What brought you to the world of premium denim? I have changed my taste so much over the years, I used to love the pretty pockets and buy jeans solely based on the wash and pocket details. Now I buy/keep all my jeans based on fit and wash mostly. A pretty pair of jeans that are uncomfortable just don’t get worn by me anymore. What do you think is more important in a pair of jeans, comfort or looks?

Artisan De Luxe is a new brand that seems to be getting more notice everyday. Earlier this week the brand launched their first billboard on 847 La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The billboard was shot by renowned fashion photographer Philippe Bialobos at a private estate in the Hollywood Hills. The campaign embodies exactly what Designer Philippe Naouri has said about the line, “The line highlights how art influences the American look; it is authentic and cool. Each piece is unique with its own personal hand-crafted feel. We made sure the billboard captured just that,” and I agree that it did. It showed what the brand does best, quality denim with an artisanal touch.

Here is Blank NYC’s huge Look Book for their Spring/Summer 2011 collection. They have a lot of denim to offer and their new styles are hot!
The Spring collection includes a bigger push into non-denim integrities, such as sateen, tencel, linen, broken twill and leather. Just like many other brands, Blank are taking it further with their fabrics. Non-denim fabrics are represented by sateen cropped trousers and long shorts, linen relaxed straight legs and drawstring pants and Tencel drawstring shorts. Military inspired styles are also present in their new line, cargos in new spring colors as well as cargo bermuda shorts as an update to the cargo and cargo skirts and broken twill military crop pant
Their new fits include a rugged slim bootcut, roll up skinny capri, relaxed straight legs and skinnys, high rise skinnies and a high rise belle. There is also a high rise aviator short. Spring seems to focus on cleaner washes and more beat-up light washes as well, transitioning from heavy embellished styles from the Fall season to new fits, fabrications and styles with a novelty twist for Spring.
