J Brand’s Jeff Rudes On Which Jeans Every Woman Should Own

What’s happening with denim for fall?
Still about color, sexy and skinny silhouettes.

What void was J Brand created to fill?
A clean and sophisticated jean that made a woman look and feel beautiful.

Which jeans should every woman have in her closet?
She should have 3 skinnies, 1 flare, a few colors, always a corduroy and 1-2 fashion styles—who’s counting!

How many pairs of jeans do you own?
35.

Why is denim so iconic in American culture?
Denim is part of our casual way of living.

What’s your take on double denim? For it or against it?
We’re for a double denim look—a denim jacket worn with a colored bottom, and vice versa. Also—a beautiful blue denim jacket looks great with a clean white pair of jeans.

Your popular Love Story jean was inspired by the 1970’s movie. What else inspires you?
Our jeans are modern and relevant. We take inspiration from our own innovation, world travel and street spotting, in addition to our interpretation of trends and runway shows.

Which J Brand jean flatters EVERY body type?
Our 811 mid-rise skinny, our Love Story and our skinny fashion styles like the Jodphur.

Love your collaborations! Are there any new ones coming up you’re excited about?
Christopher Kane.  We are thrilled at the product line and can’t wait for it’s debut.

What can we expect next from J Brand?
What’s coming—pulsating patterns, more zippers, and new hardware.
