Love these jeans

I have a confession to make. Since trying on my first pair of Love Denim jeans a few weeks ago I have pretty much worn them every day. This is not an exaggeration as my colleagues will tell you. My Love Denim jeans are the new black in my wardrobe.

Why am I showing a photograph of a gorgeous model wearing them? Well, it got you looking, and here’s a photo of me wearing them too.

These jeans have become my “go-to” basics because they are true black, make you look and feel good as well as being comfortable and stretchy. Seriously, I played Twister in these at the weekend at a friend’s significant birthday party. You could actually do yoga in these jeans. And I’ve also worn them on an impromptu run along beach.

I’ve worn them to launches and parties as well as to the office, changing them up for each day or event with different footwear, a tailored jacket, leather jacket, bomber jacket, designer T-shirts, classic T-shirts, skirts, ponchos and accessories.

What makes them so fabulous is the 35 per cent lycra content and four-way (360 degree) stretch which is engineered to hold you in but also provides a wonderful range of movement too. They’re also slimming, soft on the skin and warm.

For those who are not familiar with the brand, Love Denim is the new offering from Montreal-based brand French Dressing Jeans (FDJ) who been making jeans that flatter and fit for more than 20 years.

Am I wearing them right now? Yes I am.

Upcoming exhibition Wunderruma: New Zealand Jewellery curated by two of the country’s most prominent jewellers Karl Fritsch and Warwick Freeman, features the works of more than 75 contemporary artists including Jane Dodd (pictured above), Bob Mitchell (pictured below) as well as Maori taonga (treasure) and Pacific and historical jewellery.

Objects made from stone, wood, bone and precious metals sit alongside less traditional works such as a necklace made from cigarette butts, a brooch made from a kingfisher bird and a sheepskin necklace.

Wunderruma originated when the curators were invited by Galerie Handwerk in Munich, Germany to create a show for the international jewellery symposium Schmuck in 2014.
