While fashion designers all over the world are wringing their hands in despair over what new designs they can possibly come up with for the next season’s pair of must-have jeans, one German cosplayer already has it down pat. Make it anime, of course! Known only as Kirameku for now, she has cunningly made good use of some water-based textile paints to draw strategically positioned 2D lines and creases on a pair of plain denim jeans.
If jeans were a drug, then Dr Denim’s would indubitably be my drug of choice. But better yet, our favourite Doc’s designs just keep getting cooler and, well … finer. I’m absolutely marvelled by their two latest fits: the Osmond (skinny fit) and Raymond (regular fit). While the Osmond features a bleached down wash in […]
Most people would frown when the word Evisu comes out of someone’s mouth. Having built a brand in Japan on the back of quality production, Evisu in recent years has been pretty far off the mark. With over embellishments and the the excessive printing of their distinctive logo — the Kamone (seagull) — pretty much everywhere and anywhere on the jeans. Things are about to change down in Evisu world with the recent appointment of proven world class denim designer Scott Morrison and his loyal fellow denim head crew.
Remember hyper-colour t-shirts and Wham’s day-glo video for Wake Me Up Before You Go Go? Yeah? Well these new jeans from Diesel are in the same ballpark.

Apparently they combine ‘ultra low-cut blue jeans with an integrated string bikini bottom, with a super sexy yet extremely flattering’ fit. But […]
Jeans are a science, a science based on the deep knowledge of denim, washes and patterns, according to Dr. Denim, who have certainly twisted and turned every single atom of all their jeans into perfection. Each pair exudes a progressive design, made of superior quality at fair prices. My high waists have become the most […]
These little pieces of stained material are the best things since Lee made super-tube jeans for booty. Averaging between $90-$110, the concept behind Cheap Monday jeans is to offer a trendy tight fit for an extremely low price. They are not only made with a fashionable high waist to mould your body, but seamlessly stretch to your comfort while shrinking in a hot wash; just like other designer tubes that would cost you $300 plus. Another perk is the vast array of hues available. So bring out the bargain-lover in you and find these Sweden-made gems at Melbourne’s Alphaville.
