I just came across this heavily distressed style from the HUDSON Collection by Hudson. I find the style to be great, but I know they are not for everyone. They are the Skinny Waistband Zip jeans in Crimson. They have the same distressed detail like the ones they released a few seasons back, like the torn pockets and exposed button-fly and bleaching. The difference in these is that they have zippers at the waistband and the ankles, which I don’t think are functional. They look like they don’t reach the hem.
There are actually quite a few pieces from the HUDSON Collection line that I am quite fond of. I actually think the jackets are quite incredible. I also like the pirate vibe that I get from the collection. We rarely see brands go all out like this and do it well. You can click here to purchase these jeans at the Hudson website for $250.
Hudson recently launched their new denim from their F&F – The Future of Indigo collection which is amazingly soft and flexible! It’s a breakthrough in style and comfort for the active lifestyle. Hudson has collaborated with Equinox Fitness and ISKO to create these special jeans as a part of the “FIT FOR LIFE” collection, made extremely flexible and perfectly comfortable for an on-the-go, busy lifestyle.
This is the first-ever woven denim to combine the perfect fit and lightness of knit fabrics with the famous shape and look of woven fabrics. To celebrate this they believe in the quality of comfort for the active go-getter. This pair of jeans maintains the signature Hudson style while allowing for movement and action like never before. I have felt these jeans in person and they do feel amazing, just like leggings, but like denim.
The new fabric combines the perfect fit and lightness of knit fabrics with the shape retention of woven fabrics, with an extraordinary natural cotton touch. It is the perfect staple for an active/on the go lifestyle and the end product is a fabric that is the ultimate in flexibility, 360 degree stretch, and comfort. Three styles are initially being offered in Hudson’s best- selling fits. The “Nico” – five pocket midrise super skinny; “Ryder” – five pocket midrise zipper skinny and “Milman” – five pocket flare. All are designed and engineered to seamlessly transition from day to night.
“Style is woven in….we are extremely excited about this innovation in fabric technology. Equinox was the obvious choice for us to collaborate with on this special collection. They share our commitment to living a charged and passionate life all the while looking and feeling great” says Ben Taverniti Hudson, Creative and Design Director. “At Hudson, we believe that when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good you are empowered to do anything. Style is an evolution and we are not just about denim, we are about furthering our way of life. ” Says Peter Kim, Hudson Founder and CEO. So what do you think of the new jeans?
Denim & Supply has released their new Holiday 2011 collection. Notable pieces include an Americana Patchwork denim jacket for men and a patchwork tartan jean for women. The collection features a variety of vintage inspired pieces for both men and women, including patchwork and tartan again. The women’s collection also features waxed denim styles in both gray and black. Check out some of the looks below.
We caught up with Dylan George designer Danny Guez to talk about the inspiration, new styles, and which are his favorites from the spring collections.
For the inspiration, Danny got inspired by a walk on the beach. Seeing the ease of everyone from the surfers to just the location. Another inspiration was the fabric itself. Each pair of jeans come in amazingly soft fabrics. They also hold their shape well too. That is something that just about everyone looks for in jeans, for them not to stretch out and sag in the thighs and butt and these will not.
There are quite a few styles and fits that I think many will love from this collection. For the women they have the Keira which is a skinny jean that is just perfect. They are fitted all the way down and come in many washes. This one is a style that Danny favors and by experience I know why. They are just great. For the men, they have a straight-leg fit, relaxed, regular, and the new Rocker Skinny.
There are also some new styles along with the core styles above. They have the Elizabeth, which is a baby bootcut, the sailor pants, and some shorts as well as capris. The great news about the shorts is that they are all priced under $100. I think this is a great thing. Many shorts by premium brands are just crazy priced for how little fabric is involved. They did push the boundaries on a few new styles. For the women they have a foiled pair and a bit further for the men (well for the usual man). I am loving that more brands are starting to be more open with their men’s styles. They have come out with some coated jeans for the men. There is a coated gray, cranberry, and khaki. I am excited to see the khaki. I think those will be great.
One note that I love that Danny gave is that the signature “Z” might come back to some of their women’s styles. The detail was put on hold for a bit, to make the styles get noticed on their own and not the pockets. Another great thing that Dylan George will be coming out with are some exclusives with Bloomingdale’s and Nordstroms. I can’t wait to see the exclusives. Being exclusives they are sure to be amazing. You can check out a peek of the women’s here and check below for the men’s.
