The latest addition to J.Crew's "In Good Company" line-up of collaboration partners is LA-based denim brand Goldsign. Designer Adriano Goldschmied told T Magazine's blog that inspiration for the "Jenny" came from photos of Norma Jeane Baker taken by André de Dienes in the 1940s:
“Back then women were buying men’s jeans and rolling them up,” Goldschmied said. “I was in some way a little bit tired of the skinny that was born in L.A. and that’s been very successful. I was looking for what’s next.
The Jenny is a five-pocket jean in selvedge denim that can be worn cuffed (vintage style) or uncuffed, and is going for $288 in the original wash (right) and $214 in the Aphrodite wash (left).
