We caught up with Daniella Clarke, the founder and designer behind the wonderful brand Frankie B. We wanted to find out more about her new styles, her cargo pants and her new higher rise jeans! Yep, she is bringing out jeans with a medium rise! Carry on reading below to find out more. Also, just to let you readers know, I will be doing a review on her new cargo pants this week! They are gorgeous!
DB: What are you working on for next season? Anything new?
I’m currently working on Spring Summer 2011. We are still focusing heavily on leggings and fun light weight fabrics .
DB: I heard you were doing a higher rise jean, is that true?
We did introduce a mid rise jean due out soon. I know that we are mainly known for our low rise jean but I want to offer an alternative to the girl that wants to wear Frankie B. but might want a higher rise. I don’t want to be a one trick pony but to be frank it’s hard to break the assumptions that Frankie B. is illegally low. I admit we were very low 10 years ago when we started but we are much more than that now.
DB: Tell us about your new cargo pant! It’s gorgeous!
Thank you I agree! We have been consistently offering a Cargo throughout the years in almost every collection. The Cargo has always been a strong seller for us. The new Maury cargo is a skinny done in an ultra soft light weight twill. Super comfy but still has that Frankie B. edge and sexiness.
DB: Will we be seeing anymore cargo pants from you next season?
We are going forward with the Maury Cargo in White, Khaki and gun metal.
DB: What has been your inspiration for your current collection?
I’ve always loved that tough chic kinda ‘tom boy’ attitude, which played in perfectly with the military trends of the season.
DB: What are your favourite trends at the moment and jeans you have designed?
My personal fave of this season is definitely the cargo!
Everyone wants news instantly. So why can’t denim brands give theirs at the same speed? That is what Ksubi is doing. Using technology to their advantage, the Australian denim brand has launched their own Youtube channel. The brand themselves have said that, “The channel will be used as the official platform to view Ksubi projects live streamed from around the world.” You can expect to see various films, shows and projects from over the years featured on the channel. To coincide with the channel launch, the brand will also feature a film that they have produced and hosted themselves at the The Very Small Mall during the Splendour In The Grass Festival.
I think it is such a great idea what Ksubi is doing by starting their own Youtube channel. It gives their loyal followers exclusives from around the world, instantly. I checked it out and I think the content is great. Also great news if you will be attending the festival, founders of the brand, Dan Single, DJ Dangerous Dan, and Paul Wilson, DJ Howlin’ Willy, will be on the ÔÇÿIBEEFA’ floating stage at the event. You can click here to check out their brand new Youtube channel.
It looks like newlyweds Emily Blunt and John Krasinksi are back from their honeymoon! The pair recently got married at George Clooney’s estate in Lake Como, Italy. They settled into married life by catching a showing of Inception in LA. They look so in love, they’re adorable!
Emily was wearing a pair of J Brand 912 pencil leg jeans in antique black. Emily is quite a fan of the brand, she’s been seen wearing it quite a few times before. I really like how versatile the washed out black wash is, no wonder she wears them so frequently. You can buy J Brand jeans at Singer22 and Boutique To You.
Taking a break from filming his new movie Water For Elephants. Robert Pattinson was spotted out and about in Malibu, California over the weekend. He was wearing the Levi’s Trucker jacket for the day out. I like that he opted for a dark washed jacket. We usually only spot medium to light washed jackets on celebs.
Robert looks like he is not having it in these pictures. It must be really irritating trying to have quiet time when you are always being followed. Have you readers seen Rob’s movie Remember Me? I’ve always wanted to watch it but never got to it. It looks very interesting to me. Does anyone recommend the movie?
