Juicy Couture Spring 2005

Like most people, we first noticed Juicy Couture because it was basically THE LA celebrity wear. Juicy is THE official casual-wear outfit for the rich and famous. Whether they are are exercising, walking the dog, going to the supermarket/ local pharmacy, having fun at a pool party, and even just hanging around the house, they wear Juicy.

I'm sure most of you would have seen Juicy in department stores, or even own a few (or many?) pieces from this brand, and realise its one of those brands that you either hate or love. The authors of this blog hate to sound superficial, but we do so love Juicy. We say this because Juicy is fun, colorful and comfortable to wear.

The Juicy brand has certainly grown a lot in recent years. There is of course the basic, original Juicy tracksuits, which then expanded into casual wear, and then out came the accessories, bags, and kidswear. Swimwear was launched last year, and next spring, eyeglasses and sunglasses will be introduced.

Here are a few items from this season that I love and recommend:
Juicy's Spring 2005 design focuses on crochet trim everything.

This is a rather special design from Juicy, considering that most of their stuff is usually quite generic. It's very Juicy, yet still 'trendy'.

The cropped pants that go with the whole crochet trim look. There is also a skirt, but I thought the skirt doesn't seem to look flattering on normal girls, (unless you look like Mischa Barton of course.)

After aiming at the tennis lovers last year, Juicy this season has decided to aim at The OC lovers (ie. Seth lovers,) and target all those yauht lovers. Come join the Juicy Yauht Club!

Lovely swimwear cover-up.

All female celebs own a Juicy tube dress. Sighting include Ashley Olsen and Jessica Simpson.
Juicy Couture can be found in almost all department stores. So go and treat yourself one this spring/summer!

first - love your blog! I generally do not like juicy (in spite of owning a couple of hoodies) because most of their pieces lately are just reworked from previous seasons...and don't even get me started on their blatent hermes/luella knock-off bags... Nevertheless, I recently got the crocheted tunic in white and love it - it's what Juicy does best and I'm sure I'll be living in it all spring. I posted a review on my website if anyone's interested:
Keep up the good work! Grechen

I love terrycloth (the main fabric used by JC) but I don't really like the crochet trim on it! Nonetheless, I love the tube dress (just like the one that SJP - Carrie Bradshaw wore in the fifth series of 'Sex and the City), especially if worn with a pair of bell-bottoms!

I like the material this season. People don't generally appreciate the clothes on their back, it's hard work to make something beautiful. After a few months it's in the garbage or whatever, it would be nice if everyone donated to charities.

I just happened to run across your site and have to admit that I am prolly one of the biggest Juicy fans out there! I started buying their stuff before it ever got big back in 2000 (when tags looked nothing like they do now) and I think they've come a long way since.

I took a quick snapshot of the older tag I found in my closet: Pic

Take care,

I cannot live without my Juicy's'! I didn't pay any attention to the juicy line till 2005! What a late bloomer I am. I adore most Juicy Couture items like the ones I own: pink, light blue, vanilla off-white etc. of velour and fleece trackies. I also have many of the jewelry, few fun pink colored purses, accessories like socks and minibags, juicy barbie dolls, pink charm studded belt and outerwear jackets. I just got the Juicy aviator sunglasses in gold tone: cute and hot! Looking foward for another different pair. But my very favorite is my pink limited edition juicy sidekick!! If anyone is wondering, mommy and daddy doesn't spoil me. I'm independent in my early 20s.
....p.s. I'm not really feeling their shoes: too expensive for the way some of them look.

Juicy Couture is possibly the biggest fashion phenomenon to hit the high street and cyberspace in the past decade. Before the advent of Juicy Couture nobody would have guessed that you could slap the word JUICY across the rear of a pair of terry toweling pants and make a mint. But hey, the Juicy girls had a vision and the determination to bring Juicy Couture to life and nobody can deny their amazing success.

So what’s the history? Juicy Couture is the story of two girls named Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Taylor from Pacoima, California who wanted to create the best you can find collection in girlie clothes. Juicy Couture was founded in 1994 as an upscale T-shirt line. It later expanded into denim and sportswear, and in 1999 the designers introduced their signature low-riding drawstring JUICY pants and form-fitting zip-up hoodies in an ever-widening array of velour and terry cloth. Although the JUICY pants are a run away success with their target audience it must be noted the associated innuendo has caused a significant amount of indignation amongst certain sectors of our community.

Juicy Couture, like any business, is now trying to diversify. The brand now includes both a men’s and a child’s clothing line. This is where we start to see the problem in defining a brand so clearly in its formative years. Juicy Couture was marketed as your archetypal ladies’ brand so any attempt now to cross over into menswear is utterly futile. No guy, not even your die-hard metrosexual, would be seen in Juicy Couture clothing not to mention a pair of Juicy Pants with the word JUICY blazoned across the butt. The lesson here for Juicy Couture and up-and-coming brands is it’s prudent to inject a degree of ambiguity into your initial marketing so not to box yourself into a predefined and inescapable corner — Ambiguity is a useful marketing mantra. That said and to be fair to the girls at Juicy Couture, if their initial concept had not had such an unambiguous definition then it’s likely Juicy Couture would not be the success it is today — a successful ladies’ brand!

Returning to the issue of the innuendo associated with having JUICY plastered across a woman’s derriere and the indignation that incites in certain sectors of our community, it’s perhaps fair to say this is greatly compounded when introduced into a child’s clothing line. Juicy Couture plays heavily on innuendo and therefore a large percentage of parents will be loathe to purchase Juicy Couture clothing for their kids and some might suggest that Juicy Couture even create a completely new name for their child’s clothing line which is utterly devoid of any innuendo.

So the girls at Juicy Couture should feel proud of their successful ladies wear brand but in all fairness they should forget menswear and rethink their whole approach to their child’s clothing line and marketing strategy. Maybe we can help them out and think of a name for their child’s clothing line? What about Lippy Couture!

I LOVE Juicy Couture! It is Femmenine, comfortable, fashionable, and flatters the body beautifully. Dresses are unique. The eyelet line is AWESOME, also the terry crochet. My favorites: Terry Crochet Halter Dress, i got thousand of compliments everytime i wear my dress. And the Eyelet skirts with matching voile tops, i am short in words to said how gorgeous is the look, again, people give me compliments wearing that look. I have eyelet every color, every piece, and terry crochet, LOVE IT. I don't go for Juicy because celebrities wear them. I don't go for clothes following Celebrities lifestyles. I simply love femmenine, unique, different clothes, that flatters the body, and so Juicy is all that. Juicy Couture is just a little bit overpriced for what it is, but when you got the right price ( that smart shoppers know how to do that ) you simply hit the JACKPOT !

I've only just discovered Juicy after falling in love with a Juicy suit I spotted on Desperate Housewives 'Gabriellie Solis', they looked fab on her (ok so I maybe don't have her body but...) while doing her jogging, and I happened to be looking for sportswear to work out in, my latest crazy phase! Anyway when I first came across Juicy Couture, I thought nice, but not sure I'd be seen wearing it out, I have a one yr old son and didn't want to be seen as a 'tracksuit mum' lol! But I couldn't help beginning to notice how famous they were and how every celebrity seemed to be wearing them, so that made me change my mind and I thought that actually it would be pretty cool to be seen wearing Juicy after all. So now I am tracking down my first Juicy Couture tracksuit to purchase, hopefully by the sounds I won't regret!! So would I buy Juicy if it wasn't famous? Probably not!

(i'm only 13, so i had to save a lot of baby-sitting money!) but my mom bought a NEW juicy for 60$ on ebay. i reimbursed her after it got here. it is big, and it is baby blue with pink. it also has a pink scarf with hot pink decals. i swear, i cried when my mom let me open it early before christmas!!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
