Discover denim with integrity, created by women for women.
Made in the USA with KindCotton from a celebrated, sustainably-minded mill, our L148 Authentic Denim collection brings together the best-of-the-best materials, cuts that flatter every body and artisanal hand-craftsmanship.
MEET OUR FOUR FITS
Designed with the same precision tailoring and eye for detail you love in our famous pants, each pair is engineered to flatter.
“Our new fit for Spring. It has that easy, RELAXED FEEL that’s essential right now with a MID RISE and STRAIGHT FIT, but
has a sculptural, ROUNDED LEG and a new stone wash that
gives it a fashion-forward, VINTAGE LOOK.”
—Creative Director Emily Smith
“That VERSATILE PAIR you can wear with everything.
The proportions are what MAKE IT MODERN—a leg that’s SLIM BUT NOT SKINNY and a HIGH WAIST. For Spring,
we’ve added a new stone wash and the perfect wear-with-everything white that feels super fresh.”
“Our beloved and BEST-SELLING SKINNY, in our Authentic Denim. It’s a true legging-like fit with a MID RISE and NARROW LEG that works perfectly with sweaters, jackets & tees. —Creative Director Emily Smith
”I’ve always wanted to create the PERFECT DENIM JACKET—and we’ve spent years perfecting this piece. It’s VINTAGE-INSPIRED, but the proportions make it modern: SOFTLY SCULPTED with rounded, voluminous sleeves and TAPERED fit. The hand-finishing gives it that iconic ‘LIVED-IN’ look.”
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 more than half 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.
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.
