Last week, we were introduced to Chantel Valentene. We learned she likes to burn the candle at both ends as the Creative Director at RESIN DENIM. Resin Denim’s mix between edgy, workwear grunge and clean, classy lines, incorporating T-400 Kurabo denim, known for its excellent stretch recovery, is another incentive to check them out.
The design schedule must be crazy! How do you keep from burning out?
[My friends and I] try and do small things to take our minds off of work since we are all artists of some sort and keep similar schedules. We recently rented a cabin in Rhineback, NY for a weekend. Swimming, cooking, laughing and a vicious game of charades made for a time.
You have beautiful skin! How do you stay so radiant through your rigorous schedule?
Wow, thanks. I hope it’s not disappointing but MAC StudioFix in NW45 is the secret. My sister is a MAC Makeup Artist and recommended it for me since I don’t like spending more than a couple minutes on make-up. I should have said drinking lots of water J…

What are you currently obsessed with?
Givenchy’s last couture collection still has me dreaming that Riccardo Tisci will gift me one of those insane pieces. Truly breathtaking. My constant and everlasting obsession would have to be anything by Azzedine Alaia.
Seems that next year, we may see some more corduroy and hybrid-denim type jeans. What do you think of that?
The market seems to be moving in that direction, and I’m for things that push us and allow for modern and new ideas. At the moment I’m really feeling classic denim. I want the type of jeans that are familiar but treated and washed specially.
