Hudson have turned to the daughter of Mick Jagger and the face of the brand, Georgia-May Jagger, and come out with a new line. Georgia-May will be designing her own collection for the brand called ‘Hudson by Georgia-May Jagger’. The new collection will be launching in Spring/Summer 2011 and will be a collaboration between Hudson’s Head Designer and Creative Director, Benjamin Taverniti and the effortlessly stylish British model, Georgia-May.
The collection is infused with the sexy insouciance of rock n roll chic. Inspired by the rebellious soul of London and the ease and freedom of California, the jeans are instantly iconic. Among Jagger’s inspirations were her mother’s vintage Wrangler jeans as well as rock icons, Guns & Roses. The capsule features five styles including the N.0 Slash, N.1 Axl, N.2 Guns, N.3 Georgia- ÔÇÉMay, and N.4 Ayesha and in black, white, grey and blue washes, all in skinny leg openings for the rock n roll edge but a midrise to accommodate a wider range of body types.
Georgia did sketches and inspiration images and oversaw all elements of the capsule including materials, fit, wash, rise and inseam length, and pocket and trim details.
“My collection has a whole new cut, they are based on the style of jeans my mum wore in Texas in the 70’s. They are not high- waisted but they are a mid- rise which is great for us shorter girls and also very flatering on the hips and bum. We also are using new kinds of stretch denim fabrics exclusively developed for us which make them very comfortable. It was also really important that they be from a woman’s point of view so I asked all sorts of women – my mom and friends and family – for their input,” says Georgia.
“We are thrilled that Georgia wanted to play a design roll, in additon to being the face of the brand for the past three seasons,” says Hudson’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Kim, “She is a natural fit for us, being the daughter of a British rock star and an American supermodel, given with our Union Jack logo and L.A roots.”
The Hudson by Georgia-May Jagger collection will be sold in leading department and specialty stores domestically and internationally. It will also be sold online at HudsonJeans.com/GMJ from March 2011. How exciting! We also got the chance to ask Georgia about the collection ourselves. She seems very sweet!
DB: How would you describe the vibe of your line?
Georgia: Firstly can I say I love that you used the word vibe. Amazing. The vibe is sexy yet comfortable, a bit of rock and roll and a bit of cowgirl. I think there is a pair for everyone, each style comes in several colors ranging from bright white and blue, to grey and black.
It looks like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley got inspired by one of boyfriend Jason Statham’s movies. She was spotted going into a medical building in Los Angeles, California in a Mini Cooper, just like in The Italian Job. Rosie wore a pair of the JET Army Green Skinny jeans for the check up. I’ve been waiting for someone to get spotted in these jeans, green denim is one of my favorites.
I just looked around and noticed that Rosie is playing a new leading lady named Carly. I’m happy that they didn’t bring back the character Mikaela Banes in the new Transformers. I’m not saying that Rosie wouldn’t be able to live up to the standard that Megan Fox put forth. It’s just weird to me when they cast someone else to play the same character. Now about the name…I think the screenwriters could have chosen a better one. You can click here to purchase these jeans at JohnEshaya for $198.

Mandy Moore was spotted doing some shopping in Los Angeles, California. She wore a pair of the Current/Elliott Stiletto Skinny in Muted Beetle. Ahh…a Rick Owens jacket, it dresses up any look. The leopard sandals also gave this look a pop as well. I think it would look very bland without it.
I still cannot believe that Mandy is married and for a few years now too. Her husband, Ryan Adams, did a great cover of Oasis’ Wonderwall. We rarely see or hear about her. She most recently got some press for her Tangled movie. It’s nice though because it will bring more interest to her when she graces a magazine cover or gets spotted out.

Here is the brand new Fall/Winter 2011 Look Book for James Jeans. There really are some amazing staple styles in this collection with lots of classic washes and fits. I especially love the Twiggy in Corduroy, Twill and the Sailor style. They also have a Twiggy cargo pant and a gorgeous skinny called Randi. Play Girl is their pretty bell bottom jean too. I really do like this collection a lot. I am a big fan of James Jeans so I think these new styles will be great!
