I hope you’ve already read my previous review for the Hudson Nico Mid-Rise Super Skinny in London and maybe even checked out their S/S13 InstaCampaign. If so then you already know that this brand has some amazing pieces in their current collection. The Krista Super Skinny Crop in Anarchy is one of the featured campaign styles and is absolutely awesome!
The idea of using one of the most stylish and recognizable flags (of course, besides America’s Stars-And-Stripes ☺) which also happens to be the Hudson logo for the pant’s print is pretty cool. The symmetrical nature of the British “Union Jack” works very well as a color-blocking concept and simply looks great. Of course even the best idea is nothing without perfect execution and in this case the execution is flawless. Considering that the print was done in fabric form versus a ready garment (which, by the way, promotes a longer and brighter life), it is incredible how perfectly this jean was assembled. Each and every part of the print is matched to a “T”.
The Krista Super Skinny is a new fit for me and I must say that I am in love with it! It is really slim from the top to bottom and even considering that the pant is cropped the leg opening is still kept pretty narrow at only 10″. The Regular Hudson rise is somewhat low on the front (2-3 fingers below the belly button) and a bit higher on the back. It makes your butt look round and lifted and your overall look cool and sexy. I love the mod touch of the cropped inseam (27″) which is perfect for the overall British concept of the jeans.
Everything about these skinnies – the quirky print, bold colors and even the cropped silhouette – is about warm weather. The light-weight (9 oz.) fabric also ties into that theme and will be perfect for sunny spring and summer days. The blend of 67% cotton, 29% polyester and 4% lycra is quite stretchy and has nice shape retention which, as you know, are extremely important qualities for such a form fitting style.
Size-wise the Anarchy Skinnies seem to run slightly small but pretty close to true. I got my regular 24 and they fit very well now but I better watch my fluctuating weight because there is no room even for a couple of extra pounds ☺
I am truly thrilled wearing the Krista Super Skinny in Anarchy – such a fun and cool pair of jeans! Their original, bold design is captivating in a unique and charismatic way. They instantly draw attention! I absolutely love these Hudson jeans and hope you too will give a chance to one of these “crazy” InstaCampaign styles – you won’t be dissapointed!
