PARIS — Denim diehards are kicking into creative overdrive for the spring 2013 season as they look to maintain their momentum in a women’s bottoms market increasingly enamored with khakis and chinos.
Jeans manufacturers and denim mills were continuing to tout colored denim in a wider variety of shades, stretch fabrics and an assortment of coated and vintage fabrics at the Denim by Première Vision trade fair at the Halle Freyssinet here last week. For creative distinction, they also were showing fabrics with resin coatings and luster treatments; variations on indigo shades, and fabric hands that emphasized softness and slubs.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
