Discover denim with integrity, created by women for women.
Made in the USA using fabric from a celebrated, sustainably-minded mill, our new L148 Authentic Denim collection brings together the best-of-the-best materials, cuts that flatter every body and artisanal hand-craftsmanship.
Meet our Three Fits
Designed with the same precision tailoring and eye for detail you love in our famous pants, each pair is engineered to flatter.
We partnered with Candiani, a family-run Italian mill known for their expertise in denim, honed over nearly a century. Their fabric is prized for its rich texture, beautiful color and exceptional durability, for that true ‘Authentic’ look and feel. Called “the greenest textile company in the blue world,” thanks to their dedication to sustainability and innovation, Candiani recycles all their waste into new products and sources 40% of their cotton fibers through the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).
FINISHED BY HAND
We worked with an American denim house known for their mastery of wash techniques and incorporation of sustainable practices, including reducing water usage and chemicals. The jeans are made in in their LA studio, where every L148 pair is hand-finished, including hand-sanding and grinding to achieve the unique highs and lows.
Every pair is one-of-a-kind — just like the woman who wears it.
BUILDING THE COLLECTION
Our home, New York City, provided the blueprint for our collection. From our studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Creative Director Emily Smith named each silhouette for her favorite city streets. The clean lines nod to NYC’s iconic buildings. And each pair is designed to enhance and celebrate a woman’s individuality.
Just like New York, they only get better with time.
