Hudson jeans, which recently launched a campaign with Georgia May Jagger, is releasing a high end collection for Spring. While it will feature new styles, the namesake will remain the same.“This collection is a true evolution of the Hudson brand, just taken up to a new level, which is why we didn’t name it something new,” said Peter Kim, chief executive officer of Hudson. “This line showcases who we are and shows that we are growing up.”
The new collection will feature slight changes, like a mainstreamed white label. It will also only ship twice a year, as opposed to the 10 of the regular collection. Ben Taverniti, who has been with the firm for 3 years, was in charge of the creative aspect. “This collection has a lot of detail, which is something we can’t do in the core collection,” Taverniti said. “There is no holding back with these jeans.”
The collection will be broken down into four subsections, is broken into four groups: minimalist, resurrection, D.I.Y. and subversion. Each which will feature baggy, skinny and other styles.
The minimalist collection will feature jeans in their “purest state”, including black, white and unwashed denim. They will also feature minimal details and effects, for example, stitching on the leg to create a quilting effect or the darted back on a pair of skinny-leg jeans.
The resurrection collection will feature unique, one-of-a-kind styles, using denim from previous collections. This denim will feature elements from previous pairs, in unexpected ways. For example, featuring the pocket label on the leg.
The D.I.Y collection is military inspired, with exposed zippers, distressed styles, in cargo cuts. The washes will be darker and army colored hues.
The collection will also feature tees and jackets, to complement the jeans. The Hudson collection wholesales for $100 to $450 for jeans and $65 to $85 for tops. It will be appearing at department stores in coming months.

I thought this was worth a mention as Georgia May Jagger recently took her stand as a model for her mum and dads Hudson Jeans brand. She blew us away with her daring photos to promote the new line while she is only 17 years old. Since Hudson is featured on DenimBlog often and being a fan of the brand, do you think she will take home the award? Daisy Lowe is also another superstar who we have featured on DenimBlog, she could be the next winner as well. Who do you think will win? Below is a snippet of the article from The Telegraph.
The British Fashion Council has released the shortlist of nominees for the British Fashion ‘Oscars’, which will be announced at a celebrity-packed gala event, at the Royal Courts of Justice, in The Strand, London, on December 9th, an evening which will also bring the 25th anniversary celebrations of London Fashion Week to a close.
The event recognises the most influential movers and shakers in fashion today. Of the eleven categories at the 2009 awards, the ultimate accolade is undoubtedly the title ‘Designer of the Year’, which, ironically, was won last year by Luella Bartley, who has since ceased trading. John Galliano and Alexander McQueen have both won the title several times, and other previous winners represent a roll-call of the most well-known British designers in the world, including Hussein Chalayan, Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson and Stella McCartney. The winner of this year’s title will be revealed on awards night.
This year, there will be a one-off London 25 Award decided by public vote, to celebrate an individual who embodies the spirit of London and is an international ambassador for the capital’s fashion industry.
The night will also acknowledge the achievement of one designer who, throughout their career, has made an exceptional impact on global fashion, with the BFC Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design.
Three of the country’s hottest young models will battle it out for the title of ‘Model of the Year’, previously won by the likes of Jourdan Dunn, Agyness Deyn, Karen Elson, Lily Cole, Erin O’Connor and Kate Moss.
The 2009 contenders are Georgia Jagger, 17, youngest daughter of Sir Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, who is the ‘face’ of Hudson Jeans, one of the new ‘faces’ of Rimmel, and a new ‘star’ for Versace; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, 22, one of the Victoria’s Secret’s “Angels” and a former ‘face’ of Burberry; and Daisy Lowe, who has an international modelling career, and is the daughter of Pearl Lowe, who recently launched her first clothing collection, and Gavin Rossdale, frontman of the band, Bush.
