November 9th was a big night for the “New American” denim brand, William Rast. The brand celebrated the opening of their first freestanding store in California. The stores opened in Westfield Century City shopping center and Westfield Valley Fair Shopping mall. The brand also will open an outlet store in Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon. These are the first three of what the brand hopes will be 30-40 freestanding stores in the US.
William Rast CEO, Colin Dyne commented, “This is an important step for the William Rast brand. These retail locations will provide a destination to experience the complete lifestyle and culture of the William Rast brand.” Not only will the stores feature the classic denim favorites but also exclusive styles of jeans, jackets and more.
The decor of the stores will focus on the brand’s deeply rooted American heritage and biker culture with a modern twist. The decor, architecture and every last detail will reflect the brand’s unique image. The design was the result of a collaboration with Johnston Marklee known for their modern concepts of locals such as, the Murakami room at the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA and the Masion Martin Margiela store in Beverly Hills.
Nicky Hilton went shopping with her sister Paris in West Hollywood. I’m loving Paris’s Louboutin shoes, they do look a bit big on her though! Nicky was wearing J Brand skinnys in Ink wash tucked into a pair of boots. I like how their styles are completely different; Paris is really girly and loves pink, while Nicky is more rock chick. Speaking of Paris, I watched a programme with her and Fearne Cotton in which she revealed that her playing dumb is just an act for the cameras, she is not like that in real life, she actually works hard and is smart. It was so strange to see her talking differently as well. I absolutely love her closet though, it’s the biggest closet I have ever seen! It has a room for jewellery, a room for shoes, a room for clothes…

Black Orchid’s new typhoon and monsoon washes are sure to energize any spring wardrobe. The Black Jewel Skinny jeans are treated with a bleach splatter effect to brighten up even the simplest ensemble. The darker typhoon wash is a subtle take on the trend, while the lighter monsoon wash is a bolder way to try the edgy denim look. The Black Jewel Skinny jeans in Typhoon and Monsoon washes retail for $135. I think they look like a combination of tie dye and vintage, love these!
