Wanna beat the heat (or crazy weather) right about now? Don’t you want to jet away to somewhere like Rio de Janeiro where you can find Ashton Kutcher and Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio hard at work at a beach side resort, looking sexy in their Colcci jeans? Watch the steamy behind-the-scenes video on the making of Colcci’s latest campaign for a mini visual escape! See Alessandra put flair into frayed cutoffs (with, or without a top!). Watch wispy-haired Ashton work white jeans into a sartorial ensemble. Denim Therapy has been stalking Colcci for a couple of years now, and we think they pulled quite a coup with signing on Ashton along with Alessandra. Check this out (but bring your own Caipirinha).
Last summer, I wrote about a series of Brazilian denim labels, which included Colcci. Gisele is still under contract as the brand ambassador, and it seems her popularity hasn’t wained a bit. Even after she marries an American football player. Even after she has a baby with him. What are they calling the couple now? Br??ndchen? Brady-B??ndch? Check out Colcci’s current Funktified Web site for the latest on this global brand. Meanwhile, here’s the buzz…

Thread Lounge opens in Chicago.
San Franciscans have experienced the special fashion deals offered by Thread Lounge, and now, Chicagoans can, too. Thread Lounge Chicago’s Grand Opening party took place last Saturday (and I so wanted to be there), kicking off a midwestern expansion of this quietly growing discount fashion source. Founded by Colleen Schmidt (founder of PJs 2 Go), Thread Lounge started as a travelling sample sale of coveted high-end fashion labels “at a quarter of the retail price.” With pop-up stores scattered across the country and its roots firmly planted in its first permanent location in San Francisco — and now its second permanent location in Chicago — we can only hope they will continue to thrive and set up shop in more fashionista-populated cities.
What labels can you expect to find? Speaking of labels that produce denim, you can expect to find Colcci, James Jeans, Joe’s Jeans, and over 300 others. Other featured designers all under one roof are Alice & Olivia, C&C, Casch Copenhagen, Dolce & Gabanna Men, Milly, Oliver People’s Sunglasses, Stewart+Brown and Vivienne Westwood. It’s a one-stop fashion upgrade haven.
I could only wish to visit San Francisco or Chicago soon just to check out Thread Lounge. Hear that people? I’m jealous there isn’t a permanent Thread Lounge in L.A.!
