Nudie Jeans x Atrium NYC Collaborate On Special Edition Grim Tim Jean


Nudie Jeans Co. and Atrium NYC have announced an exciting collaborative release that hits the retail floor December 1st: a special edition of the Grim Tim jean. With a distinctive saturated green thread running through its back pocket (where their trademark orange thread typically runs), these jeans are made from an exclusive Italian-crafted slim fit organic denim dubbed Big Apple Dry Organic. And that green thread? It isn’t just a fashion statement. It pays tribute to Nudie’s dedication to the environment, for which they’ve gained global credibility (and awards). This first collaborative effort celebrates the partnership between Nudie and Atrium, and will be available for purchase exclusively at Atrium (644 Broadway, NYC) and Atrium online.

Not Just For Dudes: The Denim Therapy Girls Review Their Favorite Nudie Jeans


If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that we love Nudie Jeans—the Swedish denim brand with a cult fan following, honorary awards for eco-friendly design, and an aesthetic that surpasses any mention of fickle fashion industry trend. Their line of solid, classic jeans reflect the industrial origin of denim itself, yet still possess a modern, handsome edge that set them apart. And while their marketing is decidedly masculine, you may be surprised to know that the brand is unisex, and that Nudie Jeans Co. denim looks just as awesome on women!

If you need proof, we’ve got it right here. Francine, MC, and Renee discuss fit, function, and fashion when it comes to their favorite Nudie jeans below.

nudie-jeans-women-renee-1

Renee’s Nudie Jeans: High Kai Black. Available for purchase at in-store at Brooklyn Denim Co., NYC.

What was your first thought when you tried them on? The denim is nice and thick, and they’re very form fitting. They’re a pretty solid black that I expect (in true Nudie form) to wear in nicely.
Where/when would you wear these? They’ll be great daytime downtown jeans. It’s getting colder here in New York, but on warmer days I’ll be wearing these with a faded denim jacket, a bulky scarf, and s silky top.
How’s the fit? I’m on a high-rise kick lately. These go up to my belly-button and create a nice silhouette. I’m 5’8″ and they’re just the right length on me, creating only a tiny bit of stacking at my ankle.

 

nudie-jeans-women-francine-1

Francine’s Nudie Jeans: Tight Long John Skinny Jean. Available at DJ Premium.

What was your first thought when you tried them on? I’ve always admired the Nudie’s on my husband but obviously he is not the only one that looks good in them.

Where/when would you wear these? I am going to wear them next time I go have brunch at Schiller’s in the LES and go for a stroll around the neighborhood.

How’s the fit? I love the fit. They are mid rise, skinny jeans…perfect combination for me. Wish back pockets were a tad smaller. The fabric has the right amount of stretch so they are very comfortable. Overall,very happy with my Nudie’s, they feel and look great.

 

Michelle Christina’s Nudie Jeans: Tube Kelly Jeans. Available at DJ Premium.

What was your first thought when you tried them on? Seriously, my first thought was “Omg, girls can wear Nudies!” …My second thought was, this wash is awesome, and they feel so good.

Where/when would you wear these? I wore them to all the trade shows I attended this summer/early fall—they’re super comfortable and they go with everything. I wore them with a lot of button-down tops and wedge heels. Throw a few metallic accessories on, and you’re good to go. I even wore them to a few after parties! I just changed up the accessories and top.

How’s the fit? Love it.

Nudie Jeans Press Preview


Yesterday we stopped into the Nudie Jeans Co. showroom in New York for the press preview to see what they’ve been brewing for upcoming seasons. If you’re following the Raw Denim Project, you know that Gordon’s jeans are Nudie and everyone at DT is a huge fan of the brand. We were met with piece after piece of gorgeous eco-friendly denim in exciting new washes, sensible and soft knit separates, Japanese fabrics, brilliant color stories in plaid workshirts, and plenty more. Here’s a summary of what we discovered…

The Nudie fw’11 collection was divided on three racks: Khaki, Indigo, and Black. This is the first season Nudie is using a dedicated design team for the collection (separate from the core denim line).

The results? A vibrant, cohesive story that backs up the Nudie brand seamlessly.

Indigo being the integral denim component, it featured jackets and jeans with accompanying knit T’s and indigo-check workshirts. Eco-washes were abound. The process by which the denim is treated, distressed, dyed and washed is completely kind to the environment. No chemicals are used. We were especially enamored with the colors in the Japanese plaid button-ups and verticle pleats in the denim jackets. The lab jackets (hand distressed and up there on the price scale, with good reason) looked like they’d been worn (with love, affection, and adventure) for years.

The Khaki collection is full of great transitional separates based on preexisting fits, with industrial peasant-esque knit tops and innovative outerwear. Think jackets that come apart at the lining so they can  be worn on the coldest winter day or for an evening at a New England beach. Subtle details like leather patches gave it an exclusive feel.

The Black collection really got us going. A classic Nudie offering, denim coated with dry black paint in both jeans and jackets, is a canvas for the customer to de-construct according to their own lifestyle. Fibers already peering through the paint in the knee area, you could almost imagine how glorious these would look after six months of wearing them (maybe we should give Gordon another half-year assignment?).

The denim collection is, as always, based on the key concepts of eco-consciousness, and a garment that grows, ages, and molds with its wearer. Nudie jeans are purchased with a guarantee that the wear and natural distress caused by enjoying a pair of jeans will create additional character and stories on the surface and in the fit. The signature orange thread has been adapted to different locations (such as on the inside collar and at the hem, sometimes the back pocket), with other indigo threads appearing as well. A sophisticated step, detail-wise.

The backbone collection, which we introduced you to upon launch, was soft enough to sleep in and promising in its versatility. The 100% organic collection (produced via 100% organic methods) is comprised of 11 basics that cover ever base.  We couldn’t help but ruminate over styling a photo shoot in these luxe basics, male and female models alike.

Check out more photos of the line below, and stay tuned for more Nudie fall 2011 coverage.
