We dropped by Denim Habit on 14th street last Thursday for the Henry & Belle launch party. Henry & Belle is one of our favorite brands (both for back story and for fit), so it was awesome to check out the collection presented through the eyes of the designer. The denim was presented with the hand-crafted Henry & Belle sign and clear glass jars of indigo thread (we also got to check out some of the electric hues available by brands like Rich & Skinny). The event benefited the Heather on Earth Music Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to providing funding for music therapy programs in children’s hospitals. Check out our pics below.
Shop Henry & Belle online—and stay tuned for our exclusive preview of their latest jeans.

Last Friday, Hudson Jeans‘ Phosphorescent Invasion landed in the Meatpacking District, during New York Fashion Week. The East Coast launch event made a big splash as denim lovers and celebs (i.e. Coco Rocha and Joe Jonas) jammed inside retailer SCOOP NYC. Hudson Jeans is known for throwing some of the best parties in the industry, and who couldn’t resist the glowing neon lights and crystalline structure decor? All of this was to promote their new LouLou tuxedo stripe jeans. Watch the video to see highlights from the party.
Our buddies at d.brand opened up the showroom Thursday night for a vodka & candy (and denim) party to celebrate the unveiling of their fall 2012 line. As editors, bloggers, models, and photographers mingled they munched authentic Swedish candy from Sockerbit and browsed the brand new jeans, jackets, and sportswear for men & women. Check out the party pics (and some shots of the line) below.
One of the biggest trade shows in Europe happens at Bread & Butter Berlin, and G-Star RAW was there to debut their new Spring-Summer 2012 collection to buyers.

We’re psyched about the Natural Process: A Study In Worn Denim exhibit launching this evening at Elxr Coffee in Philly, presented by The American Classic. It’s an exhibit that explores ” the stories behind the people that used and abused (or loved) these jeans to their current threadbare and hole-y state”. Stop by if you’re in the area! We’ll have post-show coverage for you next week.

Milk Studios in NYC showcased photography exhibition Picturing Marilyn in the Milk Gallery. The show launched November 9th for a special preview, the same month as My Week with Marilyn, a film starring Michelle Williams (which the gallery’s opening reception celebrated). It was open to the public November 10th—13th, so if you didn’t catch it, enjoy the photos below. Many of the photos in the gallery were unpublished shots by leading photographers, but the ones that interested us most were shots of Marilyn in vintage denim. A-MA-ZING. See more photos of the exhibition here.
“We all know her as the classic blond bombshell. She remains one of Hollywood’s most famous film starlets. She has been photographed countless times by some of America’s most influential photographers- still, Marilyn Monroe’s life has managed to remain shrouded in mysteries to even those closest to her. Even now, new stories from Marilyn’s short lived life are being introduced to a new generation of adoring fans.” (Milk Studios)
