One of the most popular denim retailers, True Religion, is expanding. The brand will join other premium denim brands, such as 7 for All Mankind, by recently announcing that they will be adding footwear to their collection.
The footwear collection is slated to launch for Spring 2011 with 30 styles. The first collection will focus on timeless style and the hippie bohemian chic flair. Featuring embellished flats, braided wedges and stilettos, made from neutral leathers, brown vachettas, nude baby calf and tan nubuck. Also, metallic leathers, patent leathers and bright exotic skins will be used to accessorize the neutrals and make them stand out.
True Religion has coupled with Titan industries, a footwear company, to materialize this vision. Titan CEO, Joe Ouaknine explained “True Religion Brand Jeans is a designer brand with a specific vision, differentiated design aesthetic, and a very loyal customer. In re-launching the women’s collection, we see a multi-faceted opportunity to create fashionable ready-to-wear footwear for the True Religion Brand Jeans customer as well as a broader audience of consumers. We look forward to helping True Religion Brand Jeans expand into a global lifestyle brand and footwear powerhouse.”
The collection will be sold in major department stores as well as specialty retailers. Prices will range from $125-$250.

Charlie St. Cloud star Zac Efron, poses for a photo in Marina del Rey, California for the Charlie St. Cloud Press junket last weekend. Zac was wearing a pair of SPURR Rigid Denim jeans for the pictures. Simon Spurr is a new brand to me so I thought I would share some info on the designer. Simon was born in England and he graduated in men’s fashion design in 96. He’s had experience working with other denim brands including Calvin Klein jeans. Looking at his jeans, I think they are nice. I hope we see more from him soon!
Zac is always one to try out different denim. I know he loves raw jeans as well since he has raw Nudie, APC and G-Star jeans. This is another pair for him to add to his collection! He looks good in his casual outfit though, one thing I like about Zac is that he really knows how to dress and most importantly, he always knows what clothes work best for his body too. Check out his website here. You can buy these jeans at Singer22 for $195.
Another celeb has been caught in Levi’s on the set of a movie. It seems like these are the go to jeans in movies. I don’t blame the stylist for choosing them though. They make one of the sturdiest jeans around at many price points. These will definitely last through the extreme action of Transformers 3.
Caught wearing the brand this time is Shia LaBeouf. He was snapped shooting some scenes for the latest installment of Transformers 3 in Chicago, Illinois. It is nice to finally be able to spot the brand on Shia’s jeans because he is always spotted in denim, but they are usually hard to tell who they are by. Shia has said that he’s a fan of affordable denim. I read somewhere that he loves jeans by BDG in an interview a while back. I also spotted him wearing a pair of Volcom jeans in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. I think it is great that these lower priced brands get just as much recognition as the premium.

Chantelle Tagoe attends the UK premiere of Toy Story 3 at Empire Leicester Square in London, England wearing a cute acid washed denim skirt. I love her outfit here, its very different and yet it goes together very well I think. Chantelle is the fiancee of England international football player Emile Heskey. Did you keep up to date with the World Cup games?
