I was graciously invited to preview the fantastic jean company, Hudson Jeans, new lines of denim called DIY at The Colony nightclub in LA. I especially love the harem pants in the fourth photo. They were a jean material, but much softer than stiff. The zipper pants are pretty hot, too, although the zipper just an illusion. They don’t really come apart. I thought those would be ideal “all-you-can-eat buffet” pants since you could unzip as you get fatter at the buffet, but I was mistaken. The patchwork denim jeans in the fifth photo is actually made from vintage Hudson jeans, which makes it pretty damn special. I think my favorite is the corset laced jeans. You can’t really tell from the photo, but the jeans were sort of satin-y and nice to the touch. Definitely a cat magnet. That’s good news for cat ladies everywhere (including me!) Anyway, Hudson is also venturing into comfortable and chic tops such as the one above. It’s a wool jacket with an oversized lining that felt like “butta”. It was sooooooo soft. I wanted to curl up in it and purr. These pieces will be available at Barneys NY and Jeffrey. As always, Hudson’s other line is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and chic boutiques.

The patchwork galore shown at Rodarte’s last show would have made an bohemian lady who does Tai-Chi in the middle of the post office proud. Yeah, we all know a neighborhood fruit whether you’re in NYC or Bowling Green. Anyway, I’m digging the different fabrics, except I wish they were separated and  not thrown together like the $1 a pound store in Boston. Seriously, this is like one of those ‘invisible’ cloaks in Harry Potter. Throw one of these dresses on and sit curled up on the floor. I predict a cat will pass by, sniff you, and then piss and mark its territory.  Just sayin’.
