The folks at Hudson Jeans believe that great style can set people free. Although we haven’t scientifically proven their hypothesis, we’re willing to give CEO/founder Peter Kim and his designer denim brand the benefit of the doubt. Distinguished by their unmatched quality and perfect cuts, Hudson Jeans are constructed from Italian premium denim and assembled in Los Angeles. Highlights of Hudson’s collection include the Nico, a women’s mid-rise, super-skinny jean that fits like leggings; the Leeloo, a super-skinny cropped jean marked by clever color blocking; snakeskin-patterned jeans; and, for men, comfy relaxed boot-cut and wax-coated jeans in colors ranging from subtle grey to burnt orange. Dress them up, or dress them down — just remember to wear your Hudsons all over town!
Find your perfect fit from a mix of must-have designer names.
There are two different schools of thought around denim: The first is that you buy your jeans raw, wear them for months on end without washing them, and watch as they fade precisely to the contours of your body. The second, and far easier method, is to buy them with the hard work already done. This is a collection of the latter style — featuring pairs from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Nudie, G-Star, and more.
Is there a wardrobe staple more perennial than denim? Its universal appeal has never been more important than it is for spring 2014. On the runway, it took the form of dresses, skirts, and even suits; in real life, it’s been printed, colored, and layered in a million different ways. “There is something so comfortable and personal about denim,” says Elle market editor Jade Frampton, “that you can find a way to dress it up or down to fit your style.” Her preferred look? J Brand skinnies and chic white accessories. Get inspired, then shop the sale below to make denim 2.0 totally your own this season.
