Tested: Liu Jo Bottom Up

Tested: Liu Jo Bottom Up

Attention all women out there who are looking for the perfect jeans to fit their curvylicious booty! There’s a revolution in denimland and it’s called the Bottom-Up collection by Liu Jo! The Italian brand has found a new way to put the most beautiful part of the female body in the spotlight. The idea was simple but daring: they used a new couture technique that emphasizes the female curves, instead of hiding them. A simple nip at a strategic place and a reversed hip piece was all that’s needed to achieve that goal. Both details redesign the volume at the level of the hips and make the female curves attractive by making the body look slimmer without needing any form of plastic surgery!

Liu Jo’s Bottom-Up collection is also Hype-Fit: thanks to the use of an innovating fibre Liu Jo managed to create a new generation stretch fabrics of excellent quality that makes the jeans fit any body type perfectly. They show a unique and natural structure and fit the female body perfectly. Above all, the fabric is very sustainable and can take extreme treatments and countless washes.

For spring/summer 2011, Liu Jo has selected 13 different models in 18 differently treated varieties: a wide range that fits all of your denim needs. The collection is continiously evolving, while searching for unexpected details : jeans with French pockets, zippers, visible seams and exceptional washing techniques. The latest additions to the Bottom-Up family are the Fuseaux and Cropped models.

Review

I was already impressed with the Bottom-Up collection when I first saw it at the UPR showroom during the press days last year. Of course jeans always looks different when you see it on one of those skinny models or mannequins (that don’t have any curves at all), than when you try it on yourself. And with all of those promises, I just had to see for myself if they could live up to it.

Liu Jo Bottom Up at the UPR showroom (from the Press days).

I got to try the Standard Leg model. I have long and rather slim legs, but my problems to find the perfect jeans always come down to one thing; the hips and butt area. Where some jeans fit perfectly on my legs, I feel that my blood is being cut off on both sides on my hips, while I have a lot of space left on the back, which is a guarantee for unwanted butt cleavage. When I pick a size bigger, it looks way too baggy, like I’m about to go skating or something.

When I put the Liu Jo jeans on, I immediately noticed that I looked skinnier thanks to the special washing effects on the front of the jeans. It seemed to fit my body perfectly, not too tight and no gap on the back. It felt like I had a second skin. I also love the details of this jeans.

Notice the seams on both sides and the back. Those help create the optical illusion of an instant butt lift.

I really did have the impression my booty got a subtle lift. Conclusion? When you’re shopping for a new pair of jeans, you should definitely go and try on at least one of these bootylicious creations!

The result is a happy Sté! At the moment the jeans space in my closet is at its full capacity, but as soon as I need a new pair of jeans, I’ll be getting one of these babies!

Fun Fact: whenever I think of the Liu Jo Bottom Up collection; this song pops up in my mind:

Non wash против One wash — Что это такое, и какие мне выбрать?

Non wash против One wash - Что это такое, и какие мне выбрать?

Мы, в Denimio , стремимся предоставить самый широкий выбор японского денима людям из всех уголков планеты. Вы можете выбрать японский деним из-за качества, ткани, производства, фасона и по многим другим причинам. Самое главное в мире «сырого» денима — знание того, что Вы покупаете.

Многие покупатели спрашивают нас, в чем разница между джинсами “non-wash” и “one-wash”? Ответ на этот вопрос может повлиять на Ваше решение при покупке прекрасной пары японского денима.

Технически, джинсы “one-wash” один раз прошли через промышленную стирку. Так как японские производители хотят облегчить для покупателей процесс выбора размера, многие из них предоставляют вариант “one-wash”. Джинсы “non-wash” доступны у множества брендов, производящих винтажную одежду.

Так в чем же разница между ними? Для начала, давайте разберемся с некоторыми джинсовыми тканями.

Санфоризованный деним

Для санфоризованного денима нет разницы между “one-wash” или “non-wash”, так как усаженный деним прошел через специальный процесс, который уменьшает способность ткани усаживаться во время стирки. Потенциал усаживания уменьшается от 5-10% до 1-2% максимум.

«Если Вам нравится, когда Ваши санфоризованные джинсы более «хрустящие» и более темного цвета, то лучше выберите “non-wash”.»

Санфоризованный деним One Wash — Momotaro Jeans 0202SP Indigo X Black 15.7OZ Selvedge Slim Fit Straight

Причина, по которой при выборе санфоризованного денима нет разницы между «one wash» и «non wash» в том, что потенциал усаживания ткани будет минимальным вне зависимости от того, какой из них будет выбран. Такие японские производители, как Japan Blue и Momotaro часто используют “one-wash” для большинства изделий.

Если Вам нравится, когда Ваши санфоризованные джинсы более «хрустящие» и более темного цвета, то лучше выберите “non-wash”. Если же хотите что-то более комфортное, то Вам подойдет “one-wash”.

Несанфоризованный деним

Вот здесь очень важна разница между «one wash» и «non wash». Как Вы возможно знаете, несанфоризованный деним не проходит через процесс, уменьшающий потенциал усаживания. Это значит, что после первого замачивания джинсы Non-Washed сильно «сядут». Потенциал усаживания варьируется от 5% до 10%.

One-Wash

Мы, в Denimio, почти всегда советуем новым покупателям, которые еще не пробовали несанфоризованный деним, выбрать деним “one-wash», потому что так будет легче определиться с размером. Покупка несанфоризованных джинсов “non-wash” требует тщательного исследования перед их приобретением. Некоторые джинсы сильно «садятся», некоторые нужно 3-4 раза замочить в горячей воде, чтобы уменьшить потенциал усаживания. Другие же несанфоризованные джинсы не очень сильно усаживаются. Вариант “one-wash” позволит Вам обменять джинсы, если они Вам не подойдут. Многие места (включая Denimio) не принимают возвраты или обмены, если джинсы стирали или замачивали.

Несанфоризованный деним One Wash/Non Wash — EVISU EGD2000M2001 NO.2 DENIM #2000STRAIGHT FIT JEANS

Плюсы выбора несанфоризованного денима в варианте “one-wash”:

— Легче подобрать размер

— Легче осуществить обмен товара

— Нет необходимости делать дополнительные процедуры перед процессом развития потертостей

— Предотвращает ненужное усаживание после получения потертостей

«Когда дело доходит до несанфоризованного денима, “one-wash” облегчит Вашу жизнь.»

Часто бывает сложно определить, на сколько сильно «сядут» несанфоризованные джинсы “non-wash”. Они могут не подойти Вам после замачивания в горячей воде или же будут смотреться не так, как после первой примерки.

Когда дело доходит до несанфоризованного денима, “one-wash” облегчит Вашу жизнь. Вам не нужно будет ни о чем волноваться, не нужно будет замачивать перед ноской. А главное, Вы сможете купить джинсы онлайн, воспользовавшись таблицей размеров.

Non-Wash

Некоторые денимхеды выбирают только «non wash», так как предпочитают «сырой» деним. Здесь есть несколько преимуществ:

— Джинсы сядут по фигуре

— Вы проведете ритуалы замачивания

— Проживите «сырую» жизнь, как @swissjeansfreak

Несанфоризованный деним One Wash/Non Wash — TCB JEANS 50’S

«Так как они не прошли через специальную обработку, джинсы будут более «хрустящие» из-за накрахмаленности ткани.»

Покупка несанфоризованного денима “non-wash” может стать приключением. Раньше люди по часу сидели в ванне, чтобы джинсы сели по фигуре. Как мы уже упомянули, несанфоризованный деним имеет потенциал усаживания до 5-10%. Это позволяет джинсам полностью адаптироваться к владельцу. Некоторые зоны, например, талия, растянется после носки.

Так как они не прошли через специальную обработку, джинсы будут более «хрустящие» из-за накрахмаленности ткани.

Felicia Day's vampire slayer lives in first intel, excerpt from new 'Buffy' novel continuing the series

Author Kendare Blake discusses In Every Generation and bringing back the world of Buffy.

In Every Generation Book Cover PRESS

The world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer has continued to live on long after the beloved television series concluded. Buffy has had a rich life in comics, but now the world of the slayer is taking over young adult novels for the first time. Best-selling author Kendare Blake is leading the patrolling party with the new book, In Every Generation.

Published by Disney Hyperion, Blake’s novel focuses on Frankie Rosenberg, the daughter of Willow. Trouble ensues when the annual convention of Slayers is attacked, and most (if not all) of the slayers are presumed dead… Buffy included. Frankie, who has already inherited magic talent from her mother, ends up being called as a slayer.

Frankie the Slayer-Witch must join with some new allies (and some old favorites) to get to the bottom of what happened. Buffy being presumed dead and the general story of the book were part of Blake’s “walking papers” as she put it to us, but she is responsible for making Frankie’s journey feel at one with the whole of the series that came before.

Before the book hits shelves on January 4th, 2022, SYFY WIRE caught up with Blake to talk about writing the next generation, her own Buffy fandom, and get an exclusive excerpt.

Kendare Blake PRESS

The book makes it pretty clear that you are a Buffy fan, is that safe to say?

That’s very safe to say, yeah. I grew up watching Buffy.

Do you have a favorite episode?

I have many favorite episodes. Obviously «Once More, With Feeling» was a very accomplished and wonderful thing that stands out from the rest of the series. «Hush» is a favorite of everyone, I think. But I have a few favorite moments within episodes. The moment that has been recurring in my head as one of my favorite Buffy moments is an episode in Season 6 where Buffy gets caught in a time loop and she has to try to sell a mummy hand and it goes completely wrong. So Sarah Michelle Gellar has to play it nine different ways.

If you love her so much why did you «kill» her in the book?

I didn’t, those were my walking papers. That was part of the initial order. The premise of the Slayerfest explosion and Frankie being called, that was given to me in the initial pitch. And then, I just kind of had to weasel my way around it to try to eventually say, «But she’s not really dead, right? She’s not really dead.» I kept closing my emails with, «Okay. Yeah. This is great. But you know Buffy’s not really dead, right?» And nobody would say anything to me about it.

The story isn’t over when this book is finished. Is this hopefully only the first of these that we’ll be reading?

Yeah. So, it’s a trilogy. When I wrote the first book, I kind of thought of it as crafting Frankie Season 1. So Frankie being called as a vampire slayer, developing her own group of Scoobies, having her first big bad, and then the overarching questions would be what happens to the slayers? What is the slayer legacy? What is the fall out from this? And who is ultimately behind it? And more of that will come out in book two and then be resolved by book three.

You include a lot of characters from the show in the book. How did you manage to capture their voices so well?

I’m glad you think so. I think it’s because those characters have been living in my head since I was young. I’ve re-watched the series maybe four times just over the course of my life, and then I re-watched it again right before I started writing. So yeah, it was a lot of fun working with those characters. And the characters that I get to use, just Willow, Spike, Oz, and Xander, who I didn’t have clearance to use at first, so I left him out of the first a draft, and then my editor was like, «Wouldn’t this be better if Xander was doing this?» And I said, «Yes, can I use him?» And then I got to write Xander too, which was really cool. But if you had asked me, «Okay, you want to write a Buffy book, who are the characters that you would want to use?» That would be my dream assembly. If I couldn’t have Buffy herself, they would be the ones that I wanted.

The new characters feel like they could have been on the show. How did you really manage that creation? Was it also part of you being so familiar with the series?

It was. When I went into this, my goal wasn’t really to even put my own spin on it, it was just to create more Buffy because that’s what I wanted as a fan. I wanted more Buffy. I wanted classic Sunnydale, those classic Sunnydale elements that felt so familiar. Meetings in the library, patrols through the graveyard, all of the banter.

And the foundations of the characters that they gave me, Frankie being Willow’s daughter, that gave me a really decent jumping off point for who Frankie should be or who she would be as a person. And Jake Osbourne being Oz’s nephew/cousin, he was a classic Osbourne. So yeah, they just worked and before I knew it I had a whole little band of Scoobies and they were doing their own thing. And it felt very Scooby-like without being a carbon copy of the previous Scooby team.

You’ve got them being led by a slayer/witch combo. What kind of unique challenges will a character like that face?

Magic in the Buffy-verse is kind of a balancing act because you don’t want to go too far with it. You want the spells to be cool. You want the spells to be useful for their plots and their plans, but you don’t want to have them be so strong that you start thinking like, «What do we even need a slayer for?» You don’t want to overpower your witch, at least not too early on.

She needs time to grow. So Frankie herself has been a very sheltered witch. She’s always been a witch and that’s always been fine, but because of Willow’s experience with magic and how bad that went, she’s been very, very careful with Frankie’s magical training and very, very limiting.

So for me, most of the focus in book one was Frankie learning to handle the slayer powers because the witch powers she’s kind of used to. She does develop them a little bit more and has to make them work in conjunction with each other, but yeah, the new slayer powers. that’s the shiny new toy that she was really eager to mess around with.

We have an exclusive excerpt from the book. Can you give some context to what readers are about to read?

Yes. In the excerpt, you’re going to be meeting Hailey, who becomes one of our new Scooby members. Hailey is the little sister of Vi Larsson, who if you watched season seven, Vi Larsson was the potential slayer played by Felicia Day. Vi has now been activated for a number of years. She’s been an active slayer and then after the show ended, she had to raise her little sister who was orphaned in a car crash and they’ve been together ever since. So you kind of get a glimpse of what their life has been like together as Vi is on her way out to this quarter’s Slayerfest.

Take a look at the cover below, as well as an exclusive excerpt from In Every Generation, which will be released on January 4th, 2022.
