Hipster deejay cranks out a whole bunch of vintage tunes, from Depeche Mode to New Order at Hudson fete
At the end of the day, or rather at the beginning of a night, a knowledgeable girl will trade in her fussy frock for a touchable tank and a fantastic pair of denim and know she’s wearing all that she needs.
Last evening, Hudson turned out a chic cocktail hour where writers and fashionistas shared a showroom turned alternate dance hall with several mannequins in Hudson’s new sleek tanks, soft tees, and incredibly-crafted jeans and cargos. The gals and guys swilled cocktails and tasted curried chicken skewers, then took home fab canvas Hudson weekend bags filled with the softest skinny indigo jeans on the planet.
Hudson’s designer Ben Taverniti, a native Frenchman now living in LA, prefers the “Resurrection” jean to all. It is made from hundreds of pairs of vintage jeans sewn into a completely new and unique pair and retails for $995 a pop. “It takes me seven hours to complete one pant.” He tells me with a wide grin. ”It’s Italian and Japanese denim, all mixed. I take samples, cut them and create a blanket.” Then the machine cutter does it’s work to create a new pair. (See image below.)
By adding tanks and shirts that fall anywhere from the belly button to the upper thigh, Taverniti utilizes the concept of architecture and layering. “I wanted to add haute couture and knowledge to this California lifestyle.”
From how the indigo skinnies feel on my arse right now, I’d say he’s right on target.
