The collection is called Resurrection (right), and comes at a premium price of $995 per pair (most Hudson denim goes for $215 to $325). We chatted with designer Ben Taverniti (below), who has been creating couture pieces featured in the likes of French Vogue since age 19, about the collection, his philosophies and all things Hudson Jeans.
Luxist: What makes Hudson jeans so special and worth so much more than other brands?
Benjamin Taverniti: The Spring/Summer 2010 HUDSON Collection is the ultimate expression of the HUDSON brand consisting of four distinct groups - Minimalist, D.I.Y., Subversion and Resurrection (each jean is one of a kind). We source our fabric from the finest mills in Japan and Italy. Design, construction, and quality are our utmost priority.
L: How has your notorious couture past influenced the way you design jeans?
BT: It's trained my eye to be extremely critical and precise with fits, which is the most important thing when it comes to denim.
L: Do you have any advice for men and women who want to look hot in their jeans? What should they look for?
BT: Jeans do not make you ... you make the jeans ... Style should be fearless and confident.
