Henry Duarte for J Brand



    Back in September, we first found out about Henry Duarte collaborating with J Brand jeans on a line of rocker chic denim.  Small details have leaked on W's Editors Blog about what we can expect in the future from the collab- leather and suede on the horizon!  The first styles  (the collaboration will be ongoing) hit stores in December and will be super skinny, suck-in-your-legs styles that are inspired by Duarte's usual customized creations that he's developed for Lenny Kravitz, David Bowie and Angelina Jolie (we suspect this would be Angie circa 1999).

    Can't say we aren't psyched about the prospect of channeling Steven Tyler this winter- we're optimistic that these are going to be killer jeans.  J Brand is well known for perfect fits especially of the straight and narrow variety and Henry Duarte's custom jeans generally go for about $2,000.00 a pop.  The three styles that will ship in December will retail between $250.00 - $270.00 and include all those seductive rocker elements like lace up fronts and super low rises.  And with the introduction of suede and leather in the next go around (dates on these are TBA) we're thinking there may be a strong contender to hold out for in our search for perfect leather pants.
