Recently, the focus in the denim world has been raw or vintage denim. Brands like Current/Elliott shot to popularity as a result of their worn in and faded looks. However, denim designers may now be shifting away from old and toward luxury.
Spanish denim producer, Tavex, has created a fabric, which appears in their Spring collections, featuring a blend of linen, Cupro as well as silk and taffeta. Resulting in a truly luxurious fabric. The firm’s marketing director sees these types of developments as the future of the denim business, “ “We sense there is an evolution away from vintage to more high-end, ready-to-wear-inspired fabrics,” David Bardin said.
Other brands, such as Hugo Boss and D&G have been adapting fabrics made from a cashmere blend. (How luxurious!) But as Jean Ivor, Product Development head at Nudie states, the development serves a purpose greater than just luxury, “We’re not into [noble ´¼übers for the sake of it]ÔÇªit’s more about ´¼ünding ´¼übers that will wear well, such as cashmere which ages really beautifully.”
Other brands, such as Notify and Naked and Famous have also been experimenting with cashmere blends, noting the blend’s comfort and memory retention as selling points. The selling prices, however, also are reflecting this new-found luxury, some pairs starting as high as $390.

Taylor Swift posed for photos with her award for the Country Music – Favourite Female Artist in the press room at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California. Did you see Taylor’s dress for the event? It was amazing! If you click this blog post you can see how pretty it was.
For this outfit, Taylor chose to wear a pair of black Citizens of Humanity Avedon jeans with a glitter Helmut Lang style jacket. I’m not normally a fan of all black outfits but she looks fantastic here! I like her hair straight as well, it makes her look more mature. Buy Citizens of Humanity jeans at Singer22. You can also read a review of my waxed version of these jeans by clicking here.
Miley Cyrus celebrated her 18th birthday party in style at Trousdale in West Hollywood, California. She chose to wear her Robin’s leather style jeans which we have blogged her wearing before, many months ago. She paired them with a tiny bikini style top and open toed booties.
I can’t say I really like this outfit but I do like the jeans when paired with something a little different, like a sweater. Miley is beautiful though and she looks like she had an amazing time, especially with that huge cake! I wish her all the best during the tough time that she’s going through right now.

Kourtney Kardashian was spotted wearing her Glam Rock denim leggings by Paige Premium Denim while she was out in New York City. Kourtney had just finished a full day of filming and was leaving her hotel. Kourtney’s outfit is so military inspired, I love it! I think she looks amazing in this all black ensemble.
The structured shoulders of this jacket combined with the belt around the waist really makes her figure stand out as being curvy and slim at the same time. Adding the leopard print heels to the look makes it a little more fun too! The only thing I would lose though is the gloves, I find they add a bit too much to the style she was going for. Buy these jeans at Paige Premium for $139.
