I needed a new pair of jeans; plain, simple, straight-leg blue jeans. (Yeah I know, zzzzz) But anyway, when the need to buy classic jeans comes round, I always go for an American brand. Like J Brand, True Religion, 7 for all Mankind, etc. They always fit perfectly – they usually contain Lycra, they don’t fade, go baggy, or rip easily, i.e. they last for time. The thing is, you get what you pay for with these brands, and what you pay is pretty big dollar.
So I decided to keep it US, but go a little less cash-drastic. Hilfiger Denim on Trinity Street, D2, ought to sort me out, and it did. I bought a perfect pair of dark indigo, stretch denim, straight-leg jeans with retro orange stitching.
But whatevs about the jeans, the store was showcasing the fantastic new Keith Haring for Tommy Hilfiger footwear collection. Keith Haring was a New York graffiti artist who set up the Keith Haring Foundation. The foundation “supports organizations that assist underprivileged children, as well as organizations engaged in education, research and care with respect to AIDS and HIV“.
The collection, released last week, includes runners (trainers), wellies, flip-flops, ballet pumps and high-tops, for men, women and kids.
