DB: What inspired you the most when creating Nudie?
All beautiful denim fabrics, especially from Japan and Italy, inspired Maria
to start Nudie Jeans. She wanted to be able to design jeans using only the
best denim and without taking the demand on the market, profit margins and
other stuff that investors usually care about into consideration.
DB: What has been your favourite memory/experience since Nudie was founded?
When the SS10 collection was ready, the best one ever!
DB: Do you have a favourite cut Nudie have designed?
This would be like answering the question “Which of your children do you love the most?”.
DB: How many pairs of jeans do you own?
Abundance is nothing we strive for. But I have to admit that I got maybe 10 pairs.
DB: What Nudie cut has been the most popular overall?
DB: Are there any new trends coming out next season that we should be keeping an eye out for?
We strongly recommend people to not care about trends. Follow your heart and passion instead and we will get a world of multitude and beauty instead of conformity and boredom.
Nudie are holding a great competition – Wear and Tear! How it works is everyone who buys a pair of dry denim can sign up on the Nudie web site and for 6 months, starting July 1st, you can upload images of your jeans as you brake them in. At the end of the 6 months Nudie will then pick the best pair of worn in jeans and that person wins a $600 Nudie credit. Also you can visit the website and see all the different people posting their photos of their jeans wearing in. Sounds very good to me! For those of you who love raw denim, what are you waiting for!
Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers was wearing Nudie jeans at La Guardia airport in NYC. Nick was Miley Cyrus’s boyfriend a while back but they broke up. He and Miley have been spending a lot of time together recently and even released a song about their past called The Storm, you can listen to it here. Miley recently broke up with her boyfried Justin Gaston a few days ago, I wonder if Nick and Miley will get back together now? I personally love the song, Miley’s voice is really maturing.

Zac Efron was seen out in Santa Monica with his skateboard wearing his black April 77 jeans. I love that when Zac gets a new pair of jeans he seems to wear them loads like his Diesel Thanaz 73J, Thanaz 8DK and now his April 77s. He has also worn his raw Nudie jeans a lot. Here he is as well at the Lakers game the other day wearing them.
