Last week’s blog described the origins of blue denim jeans. Now, let’s take a closer look and see what’s involved in the various types of jeans being offered.
Basically, jeans for women can be described according to their cut, fit, rise and wash.
Many of us choose a style that we’re comfortable with and stay with it, while others like to try new looks when the mood strikes. One thing remains constant and that’s the description, “blue denim jeans”. However within this framework, trends in jeans can shift and change.
A PIONEER MISSES In Fast Company, April 2015, Art Peck, the CEO of GAP, Inc., had this to say, “The trend right now is destructive and destroyed denim. Our washes are clean. Obviously, we missed this trend.” The Gap has recently lost considerable business, but Peck aims to make the chain relevant again by decreasing the number of stores and bringing in new talent.
In last week’s blog, we illustrated the age span of the blue denim jeans wearer by citing a 93-year-old and a 2-year-old. That’s a remarkable 91 years! Now let’s take a look at someone in the center of this group as far as age is concerned.
AMY SEDARIS, 53, author/comedian has this hilarious commentary about her jeans when interviewed for an article in Bazaar, April 2015.
“I’ve worn the same three pairs of jeans since 1999. The designer, Todd Oldham gave them to me. They used to be his so they’re all tattered. I just get them stitched up over and over. There’s more patch now than jean. A friend took them apart and applied fresh denim underneath so now it’s old jeans on top of new.”
GOING FORWARD The world of denim is exploding and currently gives the wearer lots of options. Below, we’ve teamed blue denim with Adea. Let’s explore:

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
