What comes after spare jeans? Luxe denim line Jean Atelier has a few imagination ideas

November 20, 2017 - fall Denim

For roughly as prolonged as he can remember, businessman and engineer Jerome Dahan has had his finger on a beat of a denim universe — primarily as a teen in Montreal when he fashioned his initial span of jeans, afterwards as a game-changing engineer for vital labels such as Lucky Brand and Guess in a ’80s and ’90s.

As a co-founder of Seven for All Mankind, Dahan pioneered reward denim with his signature five-pocket jeans in 1999, before delving deeper into a contemporary marketplace with a launch of Citizens of Humanity 4 years later, perfecting a super-stretch spare jean along a way. Yet 40 years on, a Paris-born, L.A.-based Dahan still wakes adult with a renewed passion for his industry.

“As shortly as we get to a office, we start looking during fabrics and call a rinse residence to work on new washes and new developments,” says Dahan, who’s channeling that appetite into his latest denim-driven line, Jean Atelier, in tandem with longtime co-operator and engineer Noam Hanoch. “I get excited.”

Featuring towering denim interconnected with oppulance sportswear pieces, a ready-to-wear tag draws from Dahan’s denim credentials and Hanoch’s engineer sensibility in equal measure. Priced from $425 to $1,875, a initial tumble collection includes such different looks as silk bombers with ethereal edging insets, festooned denim dresses and jumpsuits, smartly tailored trousers and a rarely renouned Flip jean — a stylish curtsy to a ’80s with a high-rise, turned-down waistband.
