What better way to celebrate this upcoming Earth Day than with a pair of recycled denim couture jeans? Resurrection, the new couture line designed by Benjamin Taverniti for Hudson Jeans. Every jean is one-of-a-kind, constructed by hand from recycled denim. In this shaky economy, less is more and the emphasis on high grade craftmanship is the investors advice, but with a hefty price tag of $995, I’m not so sure. I suppose, if you’ve got the money and the jeans fit you like a glove, that in itself is priceless.

And the face of Resurrection’s ad campaign is no other than the off-spring of rock ‘n’ roll royalty, Georgia May Jagger (daughter of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger).
“Her genetic DNA and our brand DNA are one and the same,” Taverniti told Luxist. “Her mother Jerry Hall is American and her father Mick Jagger [is British] – and Hudson is born in California, but rooted in London. [Georgia] is also the ultimate Hudson girl – the personification of rock ‘n’ roll meets glamour, who embodies California freedom and British cool. She is effortlessly stylish and isn’t afraid to take risks or to be herself while creating her own destiny.” (Luxist)
