Decades Denim has a few note-worthy distinctions from your average denim launch: It comes from vintage retailer extraordinaire Cameron Silver, A-list proprieter of LA's Decades and Decadestwo designer vintage boutiques, and boasts price tags between $99-$119.
Silver will be using Japanese denim and slightly stretch fabric and hardware in shades of white and yellow gold to construct the line of 16 styles named after iconic women in modern culture. Model Nadja Auermann inspired a stretch velvet, dancer Martha Graham a denim legging, actress Ali McGraw cropped cargo jeans and finally, Marilyn Monroe lends her name to retro cropped cigarette jeans. A men's line will launch next spring.
According to Silver, the new jeans will meet the standards of his couture-wearing friends, and with the reasonable prices, they certainly meet ours as well. Silver's planning to stock the denim in both chic local boutiques and Barneys.
