Denim Deals L.A.: Paige Premium Denim at Costco?


Paige Premium Denim’s Laurel Canyon in Meridian Blue.

Just spotted in Los Feliz!  Paige Premium Denims are back at Costco. I couldn’t believe my ears.  A friend of mine practically called me from the store while she was shopping.  No jeans in petites, to her dismay.

The Paige Jeans are going for about $75.  Too bad the jeans are not online at Cosco.  If you don’t have a membership to the store, you better grab a friend who does and head on over.  Call ahead to find out whether the Costco near you have ’em in stock.

From Vogue UK: J Brand and Topshop!

From Vogue UK:


Brand New Addiction

27 August 2008, 12:36PM

DENIM addicts will be getting all hot under the collar about Topshop‘s latest collaboration: with sexy New York denim label, J Brand.

“There is nothing more American than a great pair of Jeans,” Jeff

Rudes, J Brand co-founder, comments. “We believe Topshop customers will

appreciate the detail and workmanship in our line and feel good about

wearing a genuine piece of Americana.”

The three low-rise styles have been named after New York

neighbourhoods that exemplify the styles of the women who wear them.

The Brooklyn is the ultimate super-skinny jean with a narrow 12-inch

pencil leg, while a classic cigarette style comes in the form of the

Nolita with its 14-inch leg and the Manhattan is a slim-fit 22-inch


In keeping with the New York theme, the jeans come in four different

finishes, from sleek dark denim to a distressed, vintage look, with

names such as Bowery and Empire.

Mary Homer, Topshop’s managing director, adds: “We’re really excited

to be collaborating with J Brand. Topshop has established a reputation

for producing its own new, leading-edge jeans, and we’re proud to build

on this by working with the original cult jeans brand – J Brand.”

J Brand for Topshop will be available for a limited time from November 30, priced ?89.

Denim Fits: House of Cassette’s Custom Dark Denims

Is it London in the late 1800s, or Los Angeles in the late 80s? Los Angeles-based House of Cassette is an independent fashion label, which is known for its minimalist design, complemented by tiny details and flourishes. Expect to see high quality: chainstitching and custom buttons made from an embossing technique much like coin making. Denimphiles will appreciate Cassette’s use of vintage denim, as in their Bespoke Denim, assembled with 1909 vintage denim. With their jeans and dark apparel pairings, one can go Rock ‘n’ Roll, Edwardian-Goth, or simply aging record producer wannabe Emo. Whatever the case may be, House of Cassette “surrounds itself within a burgeoning creative community, which includes writers, photographers, artists, musicians and designers.”

Celebrity following includes Jessica Alba and Alicia Keys. Housed within Downtown L.A.’s Arts District, House of Cassette’s entire design, cut and assembly process can be found “within arms reach of each other” so that a design and fit can be easily perfected in an instant.

If you are looking for the perfect-fitting pair of jeans, this may be your best solution. They take your measurements and design a pair of jeans according to your specs. Founder and Designer Peter James Lee (formerly of Hudson Jeans) says, of being in the premium denim business, “We’ve built a Cadillac; we’ve built a Bentley; a jean, worthy of its price.” I say, a perfect-fitting pair of jeans is priceless.

Denim Overalls: The Wrong Kind of Support

Oh please, would somebody tell me why anybody would cut out a perfectly good pair of denim overalls to get attention?  It’s not as if he’s Demi Moore, famously flaunting her fabulous pregnant body for Vanity Fair.  Nuff said.

NYMag: Ass Bra Is Sure to Resolve Lingering Body Issues


From New York Mag:

We’ve seen underpants with ass-padding, but what about those women who want a little help shaping their derriere and yet don’t want to add any extra volume? There’s a void in the undergarment market, and Bubbles Bodywear has taken advantage of it: Meet the Double-O Push-Up Thong, an ass bra. “Go undercover with a license to ‘shake what your mama gave you’ with our new Double-O Collection!” their Website urges. The Push-Up Thong, they say, “enhances the lift, shape and volume of the derriere while also flattening the lower tummy and shaping the thigh.” At $64, it’s not exactly the cheapest solution to a saggy backside. At least you can probably achieve the same effect by cutting holes in your old Spanx.

Gary Graham’s Twill Jeans and the New Romantic



Source: Refinery 29.

While Twill jeans run amuck in all sorts of 80s-inspired candy colors at stores like H&M and American Apparel this season, designer fall collections answer back with unsurprising subdued, non-color solutions in anticipation for a cooler climate. Trend watchers will also notice an uprising of “tribal” makeup in the club scene and Revolutionary-Battalion looks in boutiques, particularly noticeable in the jackets. Are we experiencing a resurgence of the New Romantics? Fashionistas don’t seem to be ready to let go of the 80s, and this fall, the ladies get to reinterpret their version of New Romanticism. Take that Adam Ant!

Although New York designer Gary Graham delivers textured, bleached and Dust Bowl era-inspired looks in his fall 2008 collection, you can’t help but notice some of his other historic inspirations: hints of Punk, Avante-Grunge and Goth; and, a bolder presentation of New Romantics-friendly jackets for the ladies. Think Les Miserables. Graham’s twill jeans and a punky pink zippered skirt are not as exciting as his coats, jackets and vests in various fabrics, including leather. His jackets will be sure hits with fall denim darks and smokey greys, whether they be skinny or baggier, Boyfriend Jeans. The ladies will be sure standouts and pressed for battle in the social scene. Vive la mode!

London: Girls Must Have Denim at Harrods!

From Vogue UK:

Karolina_jeanGirls Must Have Karolina Jeans

24 Hour Party Jeans

22 August 2008, 04:57PM


this month welcomed a new denim brand into the fold: Girls Must Have,

the creation of half Mexican, half Swiss former model Alexandra Classen.

“I am a jeans fetishist,” says Classen, who prides herself on the

Italian-made workmanship of her designs and their unique blend of

sexiness and comfort. “I have a wardrobe full of jeans but wanted to

create a style that can be worn from day-to-night.”

Enter skinny jean Daria and hot-to-trot boot-cut Karolina (but of course

they’re named after the world’s top It-models), which Classen hopes

will revolutionise the wardrobes of denim lovers – be they mums, party

girls or businesswomen – everywhere.

“I love 24 hour jeans, styling them from day to night,” she adds. “For a business lunch with a blazer and Jimmy Choos, on a afternoon shopping trip with girlfriends in my Chanel Ballerina pumps, on a tete-a-tete wearing a super glamorous sparkling top combined with my sexy high-heel Louboutins…”

Apparently the sartorial possibilities are endless – and that’s

without throwing the Girls Must Have mini skirt, pencil skirt, shirt

dress and tailored hotpants into the equation.
