Henry Duarte is a denim legend when it comes to Rock-n-Roll style clothes and denim. He recently collaborated with J Brand on a Capsule collection and now is releasing his Spring 2010 line. The line will be called Henry Duarte Denim and will combine his Rock and Roll past with his minimalist collection of Duarte No. Q65.
The line will feature items like dark rinse indigo and grey jeans with elaborate details. The collection will also feature zippers and bell bottoms. The styles will be cohesive, as Duarte explained, “It all relates back to each other.”
Duarte expressed his excitement on the upcoming collection and his much anticipated relaunch. “Before, the denim market was so super-saturated. I’ve been wanting to do denim again, but I had to wait for the right time. So I watched what was going on, and when I saw my opportunity, I took it,” he said. “Also, my look is back in. Rock ’n’ roll is back in!”
The collection will feature seven styles, ranging from $168-$250.

No two pairs of jeans from the collection will be alike. The collection will be divided into three categories, Evisu Genes, retailing for $150-$198, Evisu, from $198-$265 and Private Stock, which will retail for $600-$700.

Denim makers Michael Glasser and Joie Rucker will be launching an under $100 denim collection at Nordstrom stores. The collection will launch the first weekend on December.
The inspiration for the collection after Glasser met with Nordstrom executives and saw there was a need for a less expensive jean that still maintained quality. Glasser was up for the challenge of translating the standards of production from his work with Seven For All Mankind, to the Easy Money line. As he stated, “I didn’t realize the fabrics I’d be able to use would be that good, recalling the early days of premium denim when high-quality fabrics and those that incorporated stretch were primarily available from Japanese and Italian suppliers.
The lower cost fabrics will still maintain their fit and shape. “I think that some people really know what they’re doing in the denim fabric world and have been able to replicate the fabric of the premium market,” he said.
The line will feature five styles, including boot-cut, straight-leg, skinny and legging jeans, as well as a denim jacket, all retailing between $76 and $116.
