1. Say what? Turns out scratch-n-sniff jeans are actually a thing, courtesy of Naked & Famous Denim. For $150, the men in your life can wear denim covered in raspberry-scented micro-capsules that release when scratched. Yum, yum.
2. Workers specializes in vintage-inspired reproductions, and their latest collection includes a denim tote that was inspired by a pair of Hercules overalls. It’s unexpected, and pretty excellent.
3. Gisele Bundchen looks smoking in the spring/summer 2012 Versace Jeans ad. Sure, she’s topless–but we don’t mind!
4. Wrangler has a new campaign video showcasing its youthful spring/summer line. Watch out! It might give you vertigo.
5. With the help of model Krystal Glynn and filmmaker Taylor Steele, denim brand OneTeaspoon created this visually haunting short film of a girl who encounters a denim-wearing clan in the Australian forests.

In the new Isabel Marant spring/summer campaign, Gisele B?ndchen shows us exactly why colored denim is all the rage this season. Gisele makes beauty effortless in the low-rise pink denim cut-off shorts and a pair of super-chic cropped jeans. Both items feature the unique accent of a lace up closure instead of the common zipper or snaps—making these pieces a definite must-have. We love the nod to vintage, and we love the way these babies make an outfit pop. The only thing we might lose are those shoes.

Leaping from Paris and Milan Fashion Week, we hop on over to S?o Paulo Fashion Week (SPFW) where iconic Brazilian brand, Colcci just closed out their Inverno 2011 (winter 2011) runway show last Sunday. Gisele B?ndchen also returned to the catwalk, making her comeback of sorts as the face of Colcci. Accompanying her on the runway were Ashton Kutcher (no stranger to modeling) and Alessandra Ambrosio, who stepped in for Gisele during her maternity leave. Demi Moore and Talullah Willis were front row, looking fabulous in their matching nude tone heels. Denim Therapy first covered Colcci in 2008, when the men’s denim collection was just emerging. It seems Colcci is now taking serious steps to develop the men’s collection further with a well-known male celebrity like Ashton.
For SPFW 2011, Colcci produced a denim-centric collection which speaks to the Brazilian taste for distressed streetwear and sexy silhouettes to enhance curves. We also noticed the use of purple, coral and nude tones, but not surprising for Brazilian fashion, as its fashion designers have a penchant for incorporating vibrant color and patterns for the runway. On-trend fur, wedge lace-up ankle boots and drop-crotch jeans signal Colcci’s desire to appeal to the European market. Look for denim on denim, crinkle and bleached out effects. View some of our favorite denim looks from the Colcci runway presentation!

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.

When you’re supermodel Gisele Bundchen fashion labels jump at the chance to get you in their clothes, and they’re willing to make some alterations when needed. While visiting with Miss Me at MAGIC Marketplace, the TalkingShopping gals were interested to learn that a pair of their jeans had caught Gisele’s eye and since she just had to have them, they were more than willing to custom cut Gisele her very own pair. According to Sarah Pollack, a rep for Miss Me, Gisele needed just a few extra inches in length thanks to her very long legs. Check out the video below to see the jeans she can’t wait to get her hands on. The best part is that they’re less than $100!
