Stella McCartney has her sights set on jeans. She’s expanding her eponymous label’s denim offerings with 10 styles in 20 washes by spring 2014. This collection, though, will be greener than before. “Jeans are a timeless classic with a million opportunities to inject freshness and attitude,” she told WWD. “There are a lot of eco possibilities as well with denim, which I find exciting.” Those processes include using 100% organic cotton with eight styles, eliminating sandblasting, and nixing harmful chemicals and soil damage.

Parisian label Azzaro has landed not one, but two new creative directors. Arnaud Maillard and Alvaro Castejón, who collectively head womenswear brand Alvarno, are taking charge of the French house and infusing it with more modern sensibilities. “You have to be respectful of the brand, of course, but what we’re trying to do is interpret the Azzaro style with a new energy that adapts to our times,” Castejón told WWD. “There are no shiny materials in the collection— the shine is in the embroidery.” The pair’s Azzaro debut will be on July 5 in Paris.
