Normally a fashionista, Emma Watson takes it down a notch, as she goes shopping with her boyfriend. Emma wore an American Eagle denim jacket, paired with sweats and sneakers (but a Chanel purse!), perhaps she was a bit tired from all the press for Harry Potter. But she’ll fit right in as her new role as a university student!

She’s known for having “One hand in her pocket” and he’s known for his environmental awareness, so it only seems natural that Alanis Morisette and Woody Harrelson start an eco-friendly denim line. Their line, Reco jeans, is made from recycled denim (the highest percentage of recycled denim). The goal of the collection is to create jeans that are fashionable but reduce waste and impact on the planet. The amount of waste from creating the jeans has been reduced by 60%, and decreased the need for fresh cotton. This new, unique fabric is already winning raves from the Hong Kong Green council and is currently being studied by The Hong Kong Polytechnic institute. Apart from its positive influence on the environment, it also offers a wide variety of styles, from classic styles to more modern silhouettes.

For all you Nudie fans out there, we were lucky enough to get an interview with Joel Lindefors the ” Nudie Preacher”. This interview is fantastic! Keep reading! A huge thank you to Joel Lindefors for taking the time to answer these questions for us! Click this blog to red the full interview, you would be crazy not to! To see the worn in progress of some of our HonestForum members jeans, click here.
DB: What inspired you the most when creating Nudie?
All beautiful denim fabrics, especially from Japan and Italy, inspired Maria
to start Nudie Jeans. She wanted to be able to design jeans using only the
best denim and without taking the demand on the market, profit margins and
other stuff that investors usually care about into consideration.
DB: What has been your favourite memory/experience since Nudie was founded?
When the SS10 collection was ready, the best one ever!
DB: Do you have a favourite cut Nudie have designed?
This would be like answering the question “Which of your children do you love the most?”.
DB: How many pairs of jeans do you own?
Abundance is nothing we strive for. But I have to admit that I got maybe 10 pairs.
DB: What Nudie cut has been the most popular overall?
DB: Are there any new trends coming out next season that we should be keeping an eye out for?
We strongly recommend people to not care about trends. Follow your heart and passion instead and we will get a world of multitude and beauty instead of conformity and boredom.
For all you ladies out there who love Brad Pitt, this blog is for you. He recently covered Wired Magazine with some interesting poses and scenery. He’s looking pretty good lately. For 2 of the images he is wearing denim. Thank you to Z for emailing me and telling me Brad’s jeans are Levi’s! During the interview he talks about twitter and other funny stuff, it’s definitely a must read! He makes me laugh. Here are some snippets from the interview.
On his thoughts of tweeting a picture of his wife’s butt like Ashton Kutcher did of Demi Moore:
“Don’t take a picture of your wife’s butt. That’s silly. Take pictures of other people’s wives’ butts.”
On lying about how much money you make on your online dating profile:
“Everyone lies online. In fact, readers expect you to lie. If you don’t, they’ll think you make less than you actually do. So the only way to tell the truth is to lie.”
On talking on the phone while taking a whiz:
“No, you can’t talk on the phone! Do you want the guy next to you to hear your entire conversation? That’s why you should only text in the bathroom. Just be sure you don’t hit the wrong button and end up putting a photo of your junk on Twitter. Trust me, you don’t want those followers.”
On sometimes awkward cyber dilemmas:
“Who cares if your Warcraft wife is really a dude. If it’s good, don’t check under the hood.”
