Q/A With Robin Chretien, Robin's Jeans Robin 3.jpg

Robin Chretien, owner and designer of the jeans beloved by infamous and famous celebrity as well as mortal humans {yours truly}, did not make it easy for me to get this interview. He says, he is into designing and creating and not into giving interviews! But, as you probably have noticed by now, I am quite very absolutely persistent and after meeting and talking to him several times, he finally agreed, YAY! Robin, thanks:-)

Q: Robin, what made you start your own jeans company?
RC: I began my own jeans company because I wanted to be able to express my vision, the way I see denim, which is a little bit different than just basic, which I also love. I wanted to be free to work with the people that I love.

Q: I always thought of your jeans as “hard to get” – impossible almost to find here in NYC and online. Are you thinking of opening a store here in NYC?
RC: Yes, we are opening a store in New York very soon. It’s a concept store as well as a showroom in the same space.
{Methinks this is going to be my new Mecca;-)}

Q: Your best selling jeans are the Gypsy jeans – those studded and ripped jeans that you present in every new collection. While everybody is always trying to “invent” new jeans styles, you repeat the same style and always with a new wash or new details. How do you explain that these jeans have been your best sellers for 4 seasons now?
RC: I would say that the Gypsy is a top seller of our best sellers. We have many styles that are best sellers and the Gypsy is one of them because it’s a different style that’s very unique, very rock and roll, and not something you can easily find, like most jeans in in the Robin’s Jean collection.

  1. Q: How do you ensure your jeans stand out in a crowded marketplace?
    RC: By staying true to my spirit and my vision of the Robin’s Jean brand.
    SAW:  Robin is the best client (and by far the most handsome).  He understands the value and importance of branding and delivers value to his customers at every point of contact.  He owns his category by meeting and exceeding his customers needs and expectations.  He truly knows how to build, extend and deliver on the promise of his brand.  His product stands out with the unexpected and his stores invite, excite and deliver visual punch. 
    He gets an A+ in my book.

    • yes, I feel the same way – a true story about a man who is first passionate about what he does, and second all the rest that needs to be taken care of, therefore his hesitant attitude about giving an interview:-)
