This weeks’ Designer Q & A is with Kelli Delaney, Creative Director at Earl Jeans.
1) Why do you think after 200 years jeans are still one of the most popular items of clothing?
Jeans are functional and fashionable, they can be worn everywhere now from work to a sexy date.. The aging process of the indigo changes with every wash and wear and makes your jeans very personal. We fall in love with our favourite pair of jeans. Nothing can make you feel more sexy and confident than the right pair of jeans with the perfect fit and attitude.
2) Last time I counted there were over 200 brands of premium denim jeans, what makes your jeans stand out from the rest?
Earl Jean was the original premium denim brand. We have one of the most recognizable fits the Straight leg. We have followed the philosophy of the founder: A perfect jean is created when high quality denim, premium washes, and a perfect fit come together.
3) Where do you get your inspiration from?
Inspiration for Earl comes from our vintage samples, current trends, celebrity style, and what people are wearing on the streets of NY and LA. Our designer travel abroad to source materials, and seeing the way people dress from different cultures changes your perspective on style.
