RevolveClothing.com calls itself the “best designer denim selection in the world”. Agreed. They have every major brand we could want, plus many smaller ones and unknowns that have killer denim as well. This is exciting – we can only hope that the in-store selection is as good as the website! You lucky California people you! Hope the store does well and they expand into other states as well!
E-commerce Store to Watch:
Few independent e-commerce stores offer the volume of brands to earn the title of emporium, but La Mirada, Calif.–based RevolveClothingcarries more than 400 labels. That’s a number that approaches the depth and breadth of e-commerce sites operated by department stores.
By fall 2008, RevolveClothing will open a bricks-and-mortar store that will serve as an edited version of its Web site, according to co-owner Michael Mente. Located at 8452 Melrose Ave. in West Hollywood, Calif., the two-story boutique will focus on different themes such as eco fashion, Mente said.
The 5-year-old retailer also will continue its focus on new and emerging designers. RevolveClothing offers California fashion labels including Anzevino & Florence, Corey Lynn Calter and Orthodoxalong with designers such as Catherine Malandrino and popular brands such as Ed Hardy. The retailer’s will to take a risk on so many new designers is increasingly rare, said Eric Niccoli, creative director of Los Angeles–based Orthodox.
“They have a comfort with risk,” Niccoli said. “They just go for it.”
The benefits of launching new labels do not always come immediately, however. “Sometimes we’re nervous about it,” Mente said. “But when they do well, it’s really fulfilling.”
DenimBlog.com has learned that Designer Paige Adams-Geller is introducing Paige Black Label! Check out the announcement below and some exclusive photos of the new line!
In an unprecedented move from denim to luxury, designer Paige Adams-Geller introduces Paige Black Label – a collection defined by its sexy attitude and European esthetics. Luxurious fabrics, perfectly tailored fits and fabulous silhouettes are the foundation of this couture inspired line. Filling a need for edgy but sophisticated designs for women, Paige Black Label focuses on modified classics that transcend the seasons. Paige Black Label debuts in U.S. stores (the likes of Stanley Korshak, Ron Herman, Cusp, Champagne, and Henri Bendel) in August of 2008 – and is carried by the prestigious findings showroom, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Atlanta.
“Paige has such a reputation for fit, that to expand on fit outside of the denim arena made perfect sense,” explains findings owner, Deirdre Roffoni. “This means retailers can trust Black Label with confidence – knowing there will be no learning curve with this line.”
For the Fall debut Paige Black Label uses the finest in Italian and Turkish textiles, boasting a full collection of skirts, trousers, dresses, vests and jackets – all augmented by leather details, diagonal zippers and delicately placed seams. The collection focuses more on design than color – offering an elegant, detail oriented range that is available in timeless hues of navy, tan, grey and black.
Paige Black Label combines beauty and brains,” says Paige. “You’ll find timeless pieces with a whispered sex appeal. This is for the power player that never forgets her femininity.”
Future collections will expand to become a full range line – including beautifully constructed tops. Paige Black Label ranges from $230 to $1000 retail.
We also wanted to give a special thanks to Paige Premium Denim for these exclusive photos of the new line and info about the Black Label line! Can’t wait to see it in stores, the fit looks amazing!
